Lant anyone?

I've given up something for Lent twice, and now that I think about it, sugar was the victim both times. Since I'm not Catholic, I started calling it Lant. And I'm aiming to lant again this year by renouncing refined sugar, as it's the right thing to do for me, an admitted sugar-lover.

I challenge you, dear reader, to join me. (I am confident in my challenge as I know 3 people who read this blog give up something for Lent each and every year. But I'm hoping that maybe one other person will join in...c'mon, it'll be fun! Or maybe just illuminating and slightly painful.)

(Um...could one of those three people remind me when Lent/Lant actually starts? Maybe late February or something? Thank you.)

Whoa. Thanks for the reminder. I thought it was later but I did a little search and it starts on Ash Wednesday, February 6. And then it lasts all the way until Easter, March 23. Wow.

Ah suckage...all that Valentine's day chocolate is going to be taunting me. Maybe that can be focus of my Fat Tuesday revelry.

Ahhhh... Lent. So many things to give up. What horrible habit can I give up?
