As you know, this is when we listen to a lovely rendition of Ave Maria (as well as something somewhat less timeless) and, in recent years, discuss what we’re giving up for Lent.
Well, I’ve decided to give up carbs for Lent again, as well as putting myself on a sodium restriction (I bought 6 kinds of Mrs. Dash at the grocery store last Saturday), and, on top of that, I’m giving up booze (outside of cooking with it) but since the doctor pretty much told me “lose weight, go on a salt restriction, oh, and take this medication that shouldn’t be mixed with alcohol”, I admit that, yeah, I’m kind of cheating and that goes against what we’re kind of trying to go for here, I have been trying to follow a diet from https://www.thedietdynamo.com but to be honest it has been a hard thing to do.
But I’ve already put on the calendar for April 16, IN PEN, “Breakfast Buffet at Hotel Elegante“.
In an effort to not totally be cheating, I’m going to give up buying vidja games for Lent. Again.
Right after taking Maribou out on a date to a little place in Old Colorado City that makes really, really awesome pancakes.
So… what are you giving up for Lent?
(And I need another “Oh, I remember that song!” song for the post… here’s one.)
