Krissy and I have decided to participate in lent even though neither one of us is Catholic. It's a good learning experience no matter what your views on religion are. We're giving up sweets but since we aren't Catholic we gave our selves four 'passes' for birthdays, emergencies, and forgetfulness. We have to make each other aware of when we cheat. Mom has already informed me that she's making brownies for when I visit tomorrow evening. This is going to be hard. Can I cheat on the first day? I guess I'll wait until after my 5k on Saturday, right?
