    Not much in the mood to keep doing this but will tough it out for the next what one or two days?

    Okay been working on my stress/frustration with my counselor and everything was wonderful until yesterday.  Some of the new techniques that I have learned are to do something nice for myself.  So I took off part of the afternoon and went to get my hair cut.  The lady would not listen to me and I ended up with the worst haircut ever!!!!! I might as well shave my head which would look better.  Now I am even more stressed as my cruise is in about 5 weeks.  Wow those photos will look great, ugh.  So I received a "trick" yesterday instead of the intended "treat".

    Please let this be over soon.  I can only assist Paul so much by completing these challenges.  Keep chasing me Inclusion but stay away from Paul.  We already have your little tricks figured out.  FYI Paul, I just gave some money, how much do you thing I donated. Just kidding!!

    • DeeAnn Donaldson 10/24/2017 6:58 AM
      Yes Paul, I am a little jelly for sure.  I want to hear all about how to make my own toilet tank bank. :))

    • Paul Wolfe 10/23/2017 10:52 PM
      Sounds like someone's a little jelly of my homemade toilet tank bank : D

    My neighbor helped me caulk my windows today.  I tried to but I couldn't hang on to the caulking gun while squeezing the handle, dang hand.  I was able to spread/seal it with my fingers on my left hand.  Plus I had to pay him 20 bucks, ugh, but it needed to be done. I claimed it as my own since I had to pay him plus tracked the expense for another challenge.

    Wow this keeps getting harder and harder to do.  Went to the shop & had my car tuned but while there researched electric vehicles. Although I see the practical side of this the price point is not pretty, well at least for me, say cheap.  I also started a pickle ball group and we had our first game last night at the clubhouse.  I am going to work on weatherstripping today.  I should work on some de-cluttering but that is another story. Oh plus no twitter except once a day which is killing me, ugh.  Got to go as I have some work to do then off to Yoga this morning.  Have a great day!!

    Okay went to Bunco tonight and was called the Bunco B**tch but that is another story.  During the evening helped my friend who's husband just had a stroke.  I walked behind him while he walked around.  Also chopped up some pie into really fine pieces and mixed it with some ice cream he really loved that.  I am kind of digging this challenge.

      Nice, DeeAnn!  You are so good at helping others and you make a real difference!

    Saturday I went to community a dinner in my park and walked up to the club house.  Then stayed while volunteering to clean up, recycle pop cans, food or other needed items.

    Recycled Styrofoam  at local depot.  While putting the bags into the large dumpster had my keys in my hand as I opened the lid.  While trying to hold the lid, the bags of Styrofoam,  I dropped my keys into the dumpster.  Luckily a nice lady gave me a boost into the dumpster but then left.  I had to then throw the product outside of the dumpster while keeping large pieces that would hold my weight to climb out on.  All good got out of the dumpster, found my keys and picked up all of Styrofoam/returned it to the dumpster.  This recycling  thing is really hard to do.
