If you made a Lenten resolution, how did it work out?
Back here on the weblog six weeks ago, a few of us mentioned an intention to give something up or take something on for the next six weeks. It was either for Lent or for Self-Improvement for those who don’t do Lent.
I had jokingly said I would write 1500 words a day and try to finish my novel by Easter. Which my Patient Husband said was cheating,since I intended to do that anyhow. I did manage to get to within two scenes of the end regardless. (Now I need another Lent to edit the first draft.)
My “actual” Lenten thing was to listen to the whole New Testament on audio, which I will to finish up on today, only one day late. And for penance, I did without sugar in my coffee. In a word: bleh. I’m glad to note the return of sugar in my life.
For your Monday Morning Question, how’d you guys all do? Did you find it helpful to have a short-term resolution? Did you change midway through to something better? Did you suffer from Lent Creep?
If you answer on your own blog, let me know and I’ll link back to you. Otherwise, feel free to answer in the comments box.

Starting next week, I’m moving the Monday Morning Question to another morning. It’s come to my attention that on Mondays, people are busy catching up on weekend blog postings and their actual work, and they don’t feel like answering tough questions until Tuesday or Wednesday. 🙂 I’m fine with that. So I guess Monday will be held on Tuesday next Wednesday. Or something. Have fun!
