Last week was so busy and crazy that I totally forgot the 15th was my 9-year veggie-versary. Hard to believe it has been that long. I guess I'll just have to plan a proper celebration when I hit the decade mark.
I remember it coincided with the first day of Lent, which although I am an atheist, is typically a time that Catholics abstain from "meat" on Fridays. I told my Catholic mum that I was giving up meat for the whole Lent season and perhaps beyond. I think it was the 13th, actually, which was a Wednesday, but I had a few inadvertent slip-ups the first day or so, so I usually count from the Friday, which was the day after Valentine's day. I figure it's close enough. (=
