What I Couldn't Give Up

What are you going to give up for Lent?  I asked this question to my husband, and he answered "desserts". I laughed hysterically when he told me. You see, hubby has a sweet tooth, and I know he can't last a day without it! He smirked, and in turn, asked me the same question. Here's what I told him:

I'm giving up Facebook. This is going to be tough. I usually keep in touch with my family and relatives through FB. They'll be surprised. Anyway, they can call me, or send me e-mail. I'll be Farmville and application free. Yay!

I'm also giving up soda pop. I think I can live without a can of Coke and a bag of chips. *Sigh*

After the winter Olympic games are over, I'm going to give up t.v. I'll have more time to read and write. Mind you, this is easily said than done.

But what I couldn't give up is chocolate. How could I? I'm not that crazy! I like having my piece of dark chocolate every day. I just don't have the will power to let it go. Sad but true.

Maybe next year.

Pfft..yeah, right.

  1. I've thought of giving up Facebook. I'm an atheist so it would be 'just because', but still. It's kind of a time suck, and phone calls are better. <3 Chocolate is such an awesome thing that it would never make it onto any 'give up' list!

  2. And dark chocolate is so healthy...it totally makes sense to keep that one.

  3. Gotta keep the chocolate and I could totally lose the TV - only watch 1 hour a day.

  5. I could give up the TV, never thought I could but I've honestly been too busy to hardly turn it on lately. Although I have made an exception for the Olympics . . . I've tried to watch then when I can - soooo enjoyable. Love watching these talented kids!@

  7. I'm not Catholic so I don't do the whole Lent thing. I couldn't give up TV though because of Lost... I couldn't give up Facebook either because that my only communication with some of my friends. I'd probably be able to give up Chocolate though....I think :p

  9. I am not Catholic either but have been wondering about what I could give up for Lent. Laundry folding? Dishwasher unloading? Waking up in the middle of the night because of a sick child? Yes, I could give up all of those! (not the child. just the waking up in the middle of the night!)
