Have you thought about your plans for Lent?

I'm not giving anything up. I've tried, I've failed and I've felt guilty. I am however, adding one Daily Mass a week, probably on Fridays. I want to be more spiritual and I figure Daily Mass is some way I can do that. I don't want to say attend Daily Mass every day because with 3 kids and a deployed DH, I know that's just not possible. But, I will do something that is possible and positive.
My niece (in her 20s) decided to completely give up Facebook for Lent. Now that's ambitious, especially since she's getting married in June and that's how she's getting info out about it!

Wow! That is ambitious. One of my friends posted a "see you in 40 days or longer" message on her wall last night. I'm really surprised because FB is such a great tool for business, and she has one!

I really like your idea of adding a daily mass to your weekly routine. I might do that too. I can't give up FB or Twitter because I use them for work reasons. A friend of mine is giving up swearing and has set up a swear jar that she'll donate at the end of Lent. I think I'll do that too. I'm not a big swearer, but I do catch myself swearing under my breath or THINKING swear words.
