Daughter of atheists, Catholic convert, mother of two daughters, wife of Tom, living in Dallas ... not always happy but always happy to be Catholic.

It's Mardi Gras! And tomorrow begins Lent, the great renewal found via repentance and fasting.

I am giving up most of my internet places for Lent - including Goodreads. I will, however, be updating my blog often. So drop by whenever you miss me here!
