To all of my devoted friends/ blog readers-
1. I am so sorry I have been slacking off on my blogging. As most of you know, Nate is about to go on tour with one of his bands- Black Cowgirl. I am super excited for him, but have spent the last couple of weeks husbandless and lost in a sea of my own neurosis (schoolwork/kids/everyday dramas- nothing serious, just life).
2. Thank you for your continued interest in my blog and what I have to say. It warms my heart and still shocks me how many of you check this thing ;0)
Today I am going to talk about Lent. I am no longer a practicing Catholic, but Lent is still something that is very important to me to celebrate. If you look at Lent as a celebration, I find the whole sacrifice thing gets thrown out the window. As I have been thoughtfully approaching what I am going to do for my Lenten practice, I have been coming up empty. What the hell else food wise is there to sacrifice? Almonds? I mean, come ON! I cannot possibly get rid of facebook. That shit is not going to happen. I have no time to volunteer at a homeless shelter, and honestly, with Molly and Lilah in tow, I think we would do more harm than good.
I was hoping that while I was writing this blog today It would help me to come up with something creative and original, but I am blankity blank blank blank. After doing the lent thing for 31 consecutive years, I'm kind of running dry on new things to do. Hopefully by tomorrow, I will have it all figured out.
