So, Lent starts tomorrow. I’m a little bummed not to be gathering with our church friends for a pancake dinner tonight, but it’s not going to happen. My car is free from the snow now–yes!, but I’m not willing to surrender my parking space yet, and I don’t think I can manage to get back into my space–or any space–in the dark. Tomorrow night’s Ash Wednesday service is out, too–especially since it’s supposed to snow again. I hope to find a daylight service tomorrow. We’re definitely going to be out of the apartment tomorrow. We have to. It’s a toss-up as to which exciting activity we will take on–laundromat or grocery store.
But the question remains as to what we are giving up for Lent–or taking on. Last year we gave up restaurants, which was actually a really good project for us. We were all set to do that again this year, but honestly, after five straight days in the house, with number 6 on the horizon, this is sounding much less appealing. Of course, Lent is not supposed to be appealing.
Anyone have ideas for something we can do together?or maybe I should just suck it up?
