Trying to be a good (cough) Catholic girl

For the 3rd year in a row, I am giving up iced tea for Lent. You might think that's a cop-out going back to the same sacrifice year after year. But I assure you, it is really hard for me to go without my ice tea for 40 days! Like I may go into withdrawal from it. Good thing I love Jesus.

J loves his tea just as much. In fact, I am the one who got him hooked on it back in the day when we were dating and he would visit my apartment and I only had iced tea, cheese doodles and trail mix on hand. For the past 2 years, he also gave it up with me. This year, I pretty much forced him. I mean, I can't have a gallon of tea sitting in our fridge staring at me day after day. That would just be too hard ...

I still remember the one year you gave up cookies. You were too funny!!!

Shadow, that was when I was really poor. Once I made a little more money, I upgraded to the iced tea, etc! He even had air conditioning when he came over!!!! hahaha

Cookies were hard. I also tried chocolate one year and that was difficult. I am telling you though, nothing is more difficult than iced tea for me.
