There is one thing I love about Lent...

I'm not a big fan of fast food but the first Friday in Lent triggers a powerful craving...

So good.  Once.  Then I'm back to whining about pizza and fish for the next 6 Fridays.

I am giving up swearing.  Again.  It was also my New Year's resolution but I kind of forgot about it after a couple of hours...

I need an accountability partner.  Like this guy.

But I'll try to do it on my own.  We'll see.  I'm not even telling my family because I want to see if they notice, since they think I'm giving up cookies.

They won't.

I am also attempting to become an overall better, less hateful person.  It's a worthwhile goal and vague enough as to be impossible to objectively measure.  We'll see how that works out.

Oh god yes. 

I no longer identify as any religion, and I try to avoid fast food, but something about the fishwich.

We live in an area with enough of a Catholic population that we have all sorts of AWESOME seafood deals through the entire season.  (And fish chowder Fridays all winter.)

Nom nom nom nom nom.

I've never had a fishwich . . . .

I'm no good at resolutions.  Probably lucky I'm not Catholic (or indeed any religion).

We were told on Ash Wednesday to give up deception, resentment, selfishness and fear. Chocolate is OK.

Yeah..pretty sure those four are hardwired in me and aren't going anywhere.

Yep, except there is no cheese.  Elbow macaroni, cut up octopus, diced tomato.

I love both octopus and macaroni, but for some reason this is making me gag.

.  Swearing is a good one! You are quite ambitious. I decided to go to Mass on Sunday during Lent. Baby steps. I have not gone regularly because it's always been such a struggle with my kids.

  It always sucked cause I was the only practicing Catholic in my group of friends and going out on Fridays nights made my food choices so limited.  They are having hamburgers and I'm stuck with a fish sandwich.

      I find anyone who only thinks their political and religious beliefs are right and thinks anyone who doesn't agree with them are brainwashed insufferable. I will likely never vote for the UK Conservative party because I don't share their values but I have had respect to some extent respect for the party leaders and Prime Ministers who do a difficult job regardless of what I think of them. Boris may be the exception to this because he is so terrible and makes me miss Theresa May and Gordon Brown and those two were bad at being PM.

      Ah you're right Ezra turned 14 in May. I thought his birthday was in the late fall / winter like the other kids. It looks like Simon and Della are almost 3 years. Then she really hits her stride: Della and Evy and Nola are a couple months shy of 2 years, Evy and Nola and Theo are a few months over 2 years, Theo and Honor are two years and a month, and Honor and Shiloh are also 2 years and a month. The new babies will be about a 1 and a half years younger than Shiloh.

      Is Simon 13, or soon to be such?

    • Newest "Life with Gwen and Joe".  It's about "The Importance of Christ-like Words and Speech."  It's the week of camp and I don't see anything approaching social-distancing at all.  Gwen is in shorts and a little top with spaghetti straps.  Of course, she's got on platform heel with it.  Silly, vain woman...  She starts out by talking about the tongue and about how much trouble you can cause with it.  She goes over the "not taking the Lord's name in vain" in the Ten Commandments" (which she refers to as "the top ten commands") and then she says that you shouldn't even use replacement words for the bad words because Jesus probably wouldn't do that either. And if you're out there in the world using cuss words or sounds-like cuss words, you're responsible for messing up God's kingdom.

      Gwen says that people who talk pleasantly and without anger or cuss words have a better life.  She specifically reminds the boys that they're "not cool" if they use bad worlds or words that sound like cuss words.  She says that others will roll their eyes at them and they will be in a minority.  They'll stand out for the wrong things.  People won't like them.

      Joe, once again, got very little speaking time.  Gwen let him read a few verses and, at the end, he got to talk about how proud he was of all the campers.

      Spoiler

       

      At the ends, Joe tries to start dancing with Gwen but she just stands there.  Is the bloom off this particular boy-toy, Gwen??
