This is me exactly. I grew up in a strict Catholic family and I still have guilt when I fix meat on Fridays. I have since switched over to an Episcopal church (I like to call it Catholic-light: same amount of sin, half the guilt ). I observe Lent and was having a heck of a time deciding what to give up until a few hours ago. I've decided to give up Facebook. I don't really dabble in any other social media (other than JM) so you girls will be my only social media connection for the next 40 days!
