I didn't promise myself to do anything. Because I never follow through on it. But it is a goal to not spend money on anything we don't absolutely have to have.

I'm saying a daily rosary. I've already slipped up though. I tried saying yesterday's in bed, and I don't think I got past the second decade before I fell asleep. I also gave up playing solitare. (I'm probably the only person in the world who still plays computer solitare!) I don't have time to waste, and that seemed like a particularly useless waste of time.

Anthony (my 6 year old) told me that for his Lenten sacrifice he was going to sleep under his bed.LOL! I squashed that plan. My 10 year old has given up soda and juice. I don't know what my 12 year old or my husband are doing. They didn't volunteer, and I figure that is the type of thing you don't have to share.
