We are now 6 days into Lent! I'm doing quite well with my "Lenten Obligations," as I have decided to call them. (Because "obligation" sounds more forceful than "resolution".) I just finished today's morning exercises. I have done them every morning, even while out of town. I have avoided doughnuts (except for one tiny little doughnut hole which I accidentally ate before I remembered it was actually a doughnut (whoops)!), and haven't set foot on the elevator at work. This may seem fairly unimpressive since I haven't been at work since Thursday, but on the other hand I did go up and down the stairs at least 5 times on Thursday for various reasons. I work on the fourth floor, incidentally. Yay me! I can do this!
