Ash Wednesday

This year I have decided to participate in lent with today, Ash Wednesday, being the first day. I consider my self a spiritual person but not really a religious person. Maybe thats because I was raised exposed to different beliefs. My mom was Catholic and my dad was baptist. I grew up attending both churches never being told which religion I had to be but aloud to choose for myself. As an adult I attend a nondenominational church and I don't attend as often as I should...... But that doesn't mean I don't pray on a daily basis.

Ok so thats enough religion talk. For lent I am giving up Dr. Pepper. I drink a Dr. Pepper daily and if I was stranded on a desert island that is the thing I would want with me. An unlimited supply of Dr. Pepper.... aaaahhhhh...

I'm weird I know.

So no Dr. Pepper. It's water, juice, tea, milk, or Sprite Zero for this girl. I'm saying Sprite Zero because its no caffeine and no sugar. Is that cheating? I don't think so.

Anybody else giving up anything?

Big: What religion are you?
Carrie: I'm open to all
Big: Like a Seven-Eleven!

I'm like you, non-denominational. I don't go to church but I pray and I have my own little version of religion. I've done lent in the past just because I think it's a great idea to give up some bad habit. I gave up chocolate one year and it was TORTURE!

This year I didn't give up anything because of Match's graduation and I knew we'd be celebrating before Lent was over. Next year I'm going to participate though.

Good luck with the no Dr. P. I'm not a big soda person but if I were to give up coffee or tea I'd totally feel your pain.
