Fat Tuesday & Lent With The Fairchilds
Ahhh, Fat Tuesday.
Tonight we are having Sirloin Steaks, baked vidalia onions with mushroom butter, potatoes, broccoli & homemade rolls. Because the next 40 days are going to hurt! =)
Since we are Catholic, we each give something up that's near and dear to our hearts.
Fairchild Farmgirl? Well she's giving up her Coca Cola habit. I have one each day, but let me tell you, I need it.
Grace, our five year old is giving up being crabby in the morning. "It's going to be pretty hard, huh?" She said. No kidding.
Usually, I give everybody up until Ash Wednesday morning to decide what they are going to do, this year is no different. Otherwise I pick for them (who wants your mom to pick your Lenten compromise? =) )
I'm also going to go for a walk everyday of Lent. Believe me, it's easier said than done around here. So, I either have to do it VERY early, which means getting out of bed early or cutting into my precious alone time that I use to paint.
So if you participate in Lent, what are you going to give up? I'd love to hear it!
Partying tonight, fasting tomorrow,
