Computer Free Lent

Well I'm beginning my preparations for Lent. I'm giving up extraneous computing. I'm still not sure how this is going to work out, probably because I don't have a good handle on extraneous. So far I think: computer games - OUT, reading the news & surfing in general - OUT, blogging - IN, photoshop playing - OUT, updating my photo web site - OUT, movie editing - OUT, iCHAT - mostly out, podcast listening - IN. I'm still not sure what to do about my fantasy baseball team — probably mostly out.

My goal is to only use the computer when 'absolutely necessary' but as I'm thinking about it I'm having a little difficulty what 'absolutely necessary' means. The computer is a little bit of a god to me and dominates a lot of my time. For
Lent I would like to give that time back to God.

I have to travel for work on Ash Wednesday and that's a little disappointing. I was hoping to be with Fr. Giles out in Carthage and have my family with me. He's doing a community wide Ash Wed service at noon at the Nazarene Church with lunch immediately following. Hopefully I'll find some ashes in Dover, DE where I'll be.

Work out a way to get yourself to Kingwood that evening or any of 5 Wednesday evenings following. We have an awesome Ash Weds service and then 5 soup suppers/Lenten services.

Rick, I just mapquested it: Dover, DE to Houston, TX:
Total Est. Time: 23 hours, 28 minutes
Total Est. Distance: 1513.59 miles

I'll see if I can work it into the schedule.
