I've tried all morning to come up with something interesting to share with you. Today, I just don't have anything. I suppose there may be those that argue that I'm never interesting, so why I am so worried about today? Fair enough.
It is, in fact, Fat Tuesday. Not just over at The Lumberjack's Wife either. This is the big one--Mardi Gras--the day when you're supposed to party it up so that you can survive 40 days of sacrifice for Lent. I haven't given up anything for Lent in years. I've toyed with trying to do something positive instead of giving up something, but I just haven't really decided what that's going to be. I know, I'm running out of time here, but as a former Catholic who now goes to a denomination that doesn't really pay much attention to Lent, I'm just having a little trouble getting it together. (Aren't I always?)
I can't believe it's only Tuesday! This week feels forever long already. I am ready to check in to Weight Watchers this week and see how I've done. I promise I will do an update either Thursday night or Friday. I'm pretty sure I have lost some and I don't really feel deprived at all. Score on both counts! I haven't, however, gotten really motivated about exercise since it got cold again. I know I was supposed to get moving in March, but when it's cold and rainy, I just want to go to sleep. Hopefully the weather will get warmer and my body will get busier!!
Apparently, it is also National Women's Day. I have been influenced by so many awesome women in my life. I have strong grandmothers and aunts, a strong working mom (who went back for her Master's with 3 kids) and an awesome sister who is going to be an amazing nurse! There are countless other women in my life who help me know exactly who I want to be when I grow up! I'm certainly blessed and I couldn't let the day go by without saying as much.
That's enough rambling for one day! Come back tomorrow for the Wednesday HodgePodge!!
