Today is Ash Wednesday. As a Lutheran, I grew up with the lenten services on Wednesday, Good Friday services and the like. But in the church I grew up in, we didn't normally give up anything for Lent (I think it's that whole, "rebel" mentality--you know, breaking away from the Catholic church and all). However, this year I've been thinking about giving up something this year.
I've decided to do this because I want to spend more time with this guy.....
So, I've decided to not turn computer at night. Because when I get home after I make dinner, I plop my rear-end on the couch, fire up the laptop and surf the same 5 websites all night long.
Lent is the perfect opportunity to cut the cord.
OK. Not literally, because I need to make sure that the cord is available to power the laptop when lent is over.
You get the idea.
