ONE: Any Valentine's Day without vomit and diarrhea is a success in my book. Last Saturday marked the fifth anniversary of the Great Valentine's Day Stomach Virus which crippled my entire household in 2010 (not counting my youngest daughter who wasn't born for two more years).

FIVE: As Lent began, I decided to give up the same thing this year as I have for the past few Lents: time. I want to spend more time praying and less time doing other things. Hopefully I can do better this time.
SIX: Need a little sugar with your coffee? I had a little accident with the sugar container.
SEVEN: I'm working on a new post for Austin Catholic New Media which has something to do with this verse that somebody received in a text message.
