Sorry I didn’t get this published last night, but it was a very long day. I got up at 3:30am so I could be at church for my 4am Eucharistic Adoration shift. After getting home, it was time to get ready for the kids’ soccer games. There games last until nearly 11am.
After that, we ran home, got the kids baths, fed them lunch, and drove nearly 350 miles for their Spring Break vacation. Where did we go??? Busch Gardens Williamsburg!
Yes, I am having to survive the final week of this Lenten Challenge not only on vacation, but surrounded by glorious theme park good! Ugh! The biggest thing keeping my sanity is realizing all the money I will save since I can’t personally eat.
As you know, this was also a Saturday, and that would normally be my date night meal with my wife. Due to the circumstances, we obviously didn’t have a date night. However, I did have a meal. Not wanting to just have to throw away a lot of the food that was in the fridge at home that wouldn’t hold for a week, I made my Saturday night meal from that. I turned it all into a massive salad. See the picture below. I could only eat about a third of it and didn’t even get a chance to start eating until around 9:30pm. It was delicious though.
Ok…I need to go for now. Only 7 more days to go!!! Until the next post…
