Day two of no chocolate
We are not Catholic, but SPH has "given up" something for Lent the last few years and this year I decided to join him. The last time I gave up (rather than my preferred "do something more" approach) for Lent was before kids and I went vegetarian for Lent. It was a piece of cake. I did crave my beloved bacon now and then, but overall, I didn't bat an eyelash.
This year could be tough. I have given up chocolate.
Chocolate is my thing. I keep frozen chocolate chips in the freezer and rare is the day when I don't eat a handful or two, or three or... But I figured if I really wanted to sacrifice something it would have to be chocolate.
Here's the cruel twist: Shannon's older daughter is a girl scout and I ordered a good bit of girl scout cookies, which are due to arrive any day and most of which are, you guessed it, riddled with chocolate. Good thing I know a thing or two about freezing girl scout cookies. They'll taste even better in April, right (if SPH and the boys don't eat them first)?
So if I am cranky or ornery here during the next month and a half, you know the reason why...chocolate withdrawal.
Anyone else joining me in a little self-limitation?
