Ash Wednesday is a week from today. I just checked the date because I was wondering when I would have to stop eating meat on Fridays.

Now comes the hard part. What am I going to give up for Lent?

Chocolate?
Swearing?
My morning tea or coffee?

No, I’ve done all of these over the years.

And, then it hit me as I was reading an article about, um Facebook. I’m giving up Facebook for a full forty days and forty nights.

No farmville.
No commenting on friend’s statuses.
No contact with facebook at all.

I’m going to turn off the emails I get when someone posts to my wall. That’ll certainly clean up my inbox.
40 days without Facebook – I was going to say this should be interesting, but really, I had a life before facebook took it over!

So, friends, family and people I don’t really know (but somehow you ended up on my friend list) – Bye for 40 days.  If you want me to know what’s going on in your life – drop me an email. If you want to know what I’m thinking, please read my blog. Or, call me. How did we get through life before facebook? Oh, yeah – we actually talked to the people in our lives!

I wonder if I should list this in my status?
