Lamb or Lion????

It is March 1st today, if you didn't already know.

Around here, I can't really decide if it came in like a Lamb or a Lion. It isn't so cold or blizzardy to consider it Lion like, but it isn't warm and melting and mild enough for it to be Lamb Like. I am thinking that this is a premonition that March is going to be a hum drum nondescript Month. What is your March 1st like?

I am watching a news report that is saying, "Sleep is the new Sex". Apparently a recent survey showed that an alarmingly high percentage of people would rather have a good nights sleep than have sex. I am really wondering who they asked?? I mean, I understand the mommy with a baby who, when finally getting said baby to sleep and knowing that there may only be a couple hours before baby is awake again, not wanting to used up those precious minutes doing the very activity that got them into that predicament in the first place. In my rather limited experience, I can't imagine that any man would have answered that they prefer sleep to sex...that has never been the case in my house......ever.....of course, maybe that is more of a reflection of ME... "grrrrrrr baby". And also in my experience (I know, this is way TMI), I have found that one leads to the other. Good Sex = Good Sleep. Try it....try it tonight.... (thinking I may have just gained a lot of male fans). So tell me, Sleep or Sex???

It is coming up on Easter Season again. NewMan observes the Friday Fast. I used to when I was at home with my parents...in fact, we observed it all year long. When I was a single mom, that kind of went by the wayside, since my thoughts were that we ate a lot of meatless meals all the time. I am not much of a fish person, but I suppose I will have to come up with some interesting ways to make meatless meals for Friday's during Lent for NewMan. Good thing my kids like fish. Do you fast on Fridays? Only during Lent? All year?? Any idea what I am talking about?

Another thing about Easter is the Cadbury Cream Egg. Sweet, gooey, disgusting and absolutely irresistible to me. It is what I had for breakfast this morning.........Atkins says eggs for breakfast are good...........

Sleep or sex? That is a no brainer....SEX!!!!!! I can remember I was still on the maternity ward...my daughter was only a day old....I wanted my husband to be with me....I can tell you this...I certainly did not wait the time we were told before we got jiggy with it.

Now cadbury eggs....not my thing I must admit...I always wonder about that yellow yolk middle....hmmm...now having visited Cadbury chocolate factory when I was in England...I saw how they made that chocolate...milk chocolate is and always will be my favourite!!!

Wow - what a flashback to the Fridays of old when we only ate fish! I haven't even thought of that in years! I didn't think people did that now EVER...

I gotta go for the sleep. Not by choice, but by circumstance.

I can't remember so far back to the days when I was actually a practicing Catholic, but my Grandma eats fish on Fridays year 'round. I know we did during Lent, at least. But now, I'm Jewish and we'll be abstaining from leavened bread for Passover. LOL!

Cadbury Cream Eggs are good... but I prefer Papa's White Opera Cream Eggs, myself. ;o) YUM! Easter candy is the best!

I had to laugh at Jessica - I'll sleep when I'm old ... I used to say that too, now here I am not so old and just wishing for some sleep!

Nikki said...

LMAO about you eatting Cadbury cream eggs from breakfast b/c Atkins says eggs for breakfast is good.

No, I don't fast.

I thought about it a little this year decided against it. I'm just getting to the point where I can get stuff to fast from LOL.

Yes, another Cadbury Cream Egg lover. I tried to substitute for one of those tonight after a craving. I put a spoon in a Betty Crocker frosting container and pulled out some vanilla goodness. Not even close. Still pretty damn good, though.
