    So in a timely fashion, our Trauma Informed Care committee is looking at the WA Co. FMLA leave policy and sick leave as a way to implement a more ‘TIC’ approach; so I met another challenge today while reviewing it.

    Today was the perfect fall day & I was able to really enjoy my walk. I even saw a very dapper praying mantis (see pic). Was not successful in eating a locally sourced meal though (sigh), but tomorrow is another day right Scarlett?

    So question: do bassoon lessons count as a purchase? Just wondering if everything spent during the course of a day counts as a purchase...

      Maybe it depends on whether you are focusing on buying less stuff or spending less money? Does paying the power bill or paying for a doctor's appointment also count towards your challenge? It's up to you!
