Mardi Gras and Lent

Fat Tuesday is tomorrow. Lent is a Catholic tradition that begins today, Ash Wednesday, and ends 40 days later on the Thursday before Easter. The past couple of years my husband and I have given up drinking at home by ourselves. I bet you are thinking that we are complete alcoholics, but after a long day of legal work, it is always nice to take the edge off with a glass of wine to wind down and relax. We sacrifice this nightly ritual to encourage ourselves to go out and socialize. It is always easy to come home after work, but it is important to keep up with friends and this helps us do just that. I'm planning to keep it up this year. Anyone want to go to the bar?
