Three Federal grants submitted
Week from hell need sleep
It's been a really long couple of workweeks of reading, editing, formatting, making sure all forms are completed and attachments are in order and deadlines are met. Hours of overtime and bringing work home - now I'm so tired I think maybe I'm bordering on delirious. Man, those Federal grant applications will suck the life out of you. Good night everyone - hope you all have a great weekend! I think I might just sleep through it all.

I thought that maybe it the spirit of things I would consider giving something up for Lent. You know, camaraderie and all. Anyway, as I was discussing this with people in relation to what they were giving up, I came to a somewhat perplexing discovery. Finding something to give up is considerably harder than I expected. First I thought, â€œWhat the heck can I even give up?â€ I mean, I donâ€™t drink, I quit smoking 2 years ago (which I actually think should be enough giving up of something to last an entire lifetime), donâ€™t have much in the way of a sex-life since I havenâ€™t really found anyone who has sparked my interest since my husband died (which, again, I say would be enough giving up of something to last an entire lifetime-maybe two lifetimes) - man my life is looking kind of pathetic here. Then some people were talking about certain foods they were giving up. This got me thinking, oh, hell (sorry) no! Weâ€™ve already been doing a kind of â€œBiggest Loserâ€ competition at work for just over a month now (in which I am ahead - lost 14 lbs. so far), which has me (back) on an Atkins-esque type diet. So, with this diet I have already basically given up carbs, meaning, I no longer eat potatoes, rice, pasta, bread, sweets, chips, chocolate, ice cream, candy, etc., and very little fruit. I also donâ€™t drink any soft-drinks or other sugary and/or juice-type drinks. I pretty much only drink water, coffee, and occasionally V-8. This kind of leaves meat, cheese, and vegetables, and on rare occasion some blackberries or raspberries - guess I just canâ€™t quite see myself giving up any other foods.
Then someone told me they donâ€™t give anything up - rather they â€œgiveâ€ for Lent. This co-worker said they were going that day to give blood. I thought - ok thatâ€™s great. Then I remembered, the last time I tried to give blood they wouldnâ€™t take it because I was anemic. Guess maybe thatâ€™s out too. And, besides, I already made an e-strip donation.
So, then I thought - well, maybe I should just give up my kids (after all, who couldnâ€™t use a 40 day vacation) - but then thought, nah, youâ€™re supposed to give up something you like (hahahaha), or make some sacrifice, and besides, who the hell else would want them.
Finally - the only vices I have left that would truly be a sacrifice for me are swearing and coffee and... she says as she takes another sip... â€œthereâ€™s no f***ing way Iâ€™m giving them up!â€ So, I guess Iâ€™ve come to my conclusion; Iâ€™m giving up trying to give up anything for Lent.
Peace to all this Lenten season.
