    My challenge started out slowly but ended up going well. I'm glad the kids got into turning the lights off after all.  I'll definitely continue doing this to save energy and keep costs down.  My goal is to get back out and do more walking....as long as it's fairly nice and when it's not I'll see what calories I can burn inside.

    I signed up for the Create your own challenge. It didn’t give me an option to add what i was going to do but we all made hand trees with fall leaves.

    I’m having a hard time getting my walking in. I do not want to walk in the rainy gross weather.  The sun is already up when I get ready for work and has set by time I leave or it’s so gloomy that it’s hard to tell. So I’m not hitting these challenges daily.

    My daughter just told me the kids get into turning off the lights while I’m at work like when my daughter’s in the kitchen making meals even. “Let’s turn off all the lights in the house and make it dark like Nanna wants”. LOL cracks me up!

    The kids are not as engaged about my saving  electricity challenge,  but  at least I’m meeting that one each day.   Thanks for the offer on the meter Debra.   The kids don’t seem to be that into it.   I thought I was alone on this one until this morning when my oldest grandson peeked in my room and said he saved electricity after leaving the bathroom.  Awe!

    I've had a bit of a rocky start so far. I lost access to my iPad so was unable to log in for a few days but think I have caught up on my logging up through today.

    Oct 11 is right around the corner!  I explained to the kids what we were focusing on this year and we talked about electricity and keeping lights off when not in use.

    I'm excited to do this again since last year I had a great time. I'm going to include the kids again by turning off lights when not in use to save energy and my bill.
