Friday Roundup: Jobs, Debt, and Tax Refunds

by Kristina on March 16, 2012 · 4 comments

Good Morning DINKS and Happy Friday.  I am not sure if I mentioned this or not, but as of Wednesday February 29th I gave up eating chocolate for the 40 days of sacrifice during the period known as Lent.

It has been well over two weeks since I ate anything chocolate including chocolate ice cream, chocolate milk, chocolate bars, and anything else chocolate flavoured.  The first 7 days were really difficult and I am definitely looking forward to the day when I can eat chocolate again, but my chocolate cravings are getting smaller as the days go by.

I usually don’t give up something during the 40 days of Lent, I usually try to improve on something in my life such as using less foul language, cooking at home more, or trying to do a daily good deed; but this year I decided to give up chocolate.  I usually eat something chocolate or chocolate flavoured on a daily basis so 40 days without one of my favourite foods is definitely going to be a personal success. I am going to look back on this experience during future times of defeat and tell myself that if I can live without eating chocolate for 40 days then I can do anything.

Here are our favourite posts from around the web this week.
Enjoy DINKS and Have a Great Weekend!
