Mardi Gras, Fat Tuesday and Lent

This week, Lent begins. Many people follow very restrictive diets, giving up sugar treats, cleaning house (the 40 bag Challenge, where you try to fill up 40 bags for trash or donation) or giving up things that they enjoy doing. They might even give up something that they do, like cursing. It is interesting to see what people give up. My father will give up meat on Fridays and eat Fish all through Lent, sometimes even longer. Right now I am in spring cleaning mode and I will most likely fill up bags to trash, donate or sell (in the spring). I have some things that need to be sold (like a trampoline and a see saw) and things that we will donate (like clothing that the girls outgrew) and trash....things that just aren't any good any longer. I clean a small area and move onto another and keep moving around. I am also going to clean out emails, finish WIPs and a friend asked for a donation for her cub scout and his troop, so I will be going through my yarn and figuring out a nice donation (not something I don't want, but something I want, but don't have time to work with or haven't laid hands on in awhile). What are you going to do for Lent?
