I've been dealing with some extra pain lately, which has me a bit down. So I thought I'd run another kindness challenge to force me outside myself. Care to join in?

To enter: Add an item to this geeklist, perform an act of kindness each day for a week, and keep track of what you do each day. It is possible to do this 3 times before the challenge ends. If you choose to participate more than once, create a new geeklist item for each week. Each completed week (geeklist item) counts as one entry for the giveaway.

Your daily acts can be small or large - check out the previous challenges in Hedgehog kindness challenge subscription list for some ideas.

Prizes:
"Grand prize" winner: One person will be chosen as the "grand prize" winner (likely via a die roll). The winner will get a Gamer Glass dragon of their color choice (see here for examples). Free shipping worldwide is included in the prize.
Additionally, the winner will get to choose one of the following charities to receive a $200 donation:
charity:water
• Winner's local food bank
• Winner's local homeless shelter
• Winner's local animal shelter
"Second place" winner: A second winner will be chosen similarly. This winner will get 30 geekgold, courtesy of Linnea Capps, along with getting to choose which of the above charities will receive $50.
"Third place" winner: A third winner will be chosen as above. This winner will get 30 geekgold, courtesy of Lucas Fox.

Deadline to enter: Wednesday, August 16, 2017, at 4pm EST. Your geeklist item must have 7 days with acts of kindness listed by this time to count.

***NOT AN ENTRY***

WEEK 1
Day 1 (Sat, Jul 22): Sent a small no-reason gift to our goddaughters.
Day 2 (Sun, Jul 23): Tiny thing, but I got 15 people to quit a raid today so that another 2 people who just showed up could join in. I also made sure to say hi to the homeless guy outside church.
Day 3 (Mon, Jul 24): Someone's motorcycle cover was flapping in the wind, so I recovered the bike to protect it from the rain. This evening even though I just wanted to zone out for a bit, I tried to really listen to Jenn since she wanted to talk about her day.
Day 4 (Tue, Jul 25): Lent a coworker my windbreaker because she looked like she was freezing.
Day 5 (Wed, Jul 26): Read through a friend's cover letter and provided feedback to make it stronger.
Day 6 (Thu, Jul 27): Ordered a large order of chips and guacamole to bring to game night at work. Also let a stranger call her grandma on her phone to say she was running late. (This latter one I truly did only because I am taking part in this challenge and so am more aware of being extra kind. The last time I let a stranger use my phone, it got very awkward.)
Day 7 (Fri, Jul 28): I was able to get in a number of kind acts today! I emptied and refilled the dishwasher (not my normal chore). I took the time to write out clear directions for a coworker for how to run a new pipeline. And I used my lunch break to work on the next draft of my friend's cover letter.

**WEEK 1 COMPLETE**

WEEK 2
Day 1 (Sat, Jul 29): Took the car in for an oil change while Jenn stayed home and worked on stuff. It's mostly Jenn's car, and we usually play games at the mechanic, so this felt like a big act.
Day 2 (Sun, Jul 30): Made dinner while Jenn worked on stuff.
Day 3 (Mon, Jul 31): Went shopping at the farmers' market, cooked dinner, AND cleaned up after. Also agreed to let a guy take a picture of us and post it his FB page for his pop up astronomy nights.
Day 4 (Tues, Aug 1): Drove Jenn to and from her class.
Day 5 (Wed, Aug 2): Picked up ice cream for Jenn on the way home. Also asked another coworker to forward on my friend's CV to the hiring manager.
Day 6 (Thurs, Aug 3): Helped a fundraising woman get her first signup for this group by signing up for a monthly donation to Save the Children.
Day 7 (Fri, Aug 4): Made Jenn a sandwich for lunch, even though I didn't really want to. We're going to watch our friends' dog this evening, too. And we're going to pick up our friend from the airport this evening.

**WEEK 2 complete**

WEEK 3

Day 1 (Sat, Aug 5): Sent out a citizenship star.
Day 2 (Sun, Aug 6): Filled a bowl of fruit for a friend so that she didn't have to get off the couch during the movie.
Day 3 (Mon, Aug 7): Spent a lot of time this afternoon helping my friend prepare for a phone interview.
Day 4 (Tues, Aug 8): Bought a Spare Change newspaper, even though I almost never read them.
Day 5 (Wed, Aug 9): Held the door open for several people this evening, which then allowed them to get in line for food before me.
Day 6 (Thurs, Aug 10): Stopped for ice cream for Jenn on the way home. Also went to happy hour to support our group bonding a bit more, even though I really didn't want to.
Day 7 (Fri, Aug 11): Shared with my director (boss's boss) that some people are extremely frustrated at work right now so that he can try to work on fixing the situation. Had dinner mostly prepared before Jenn got home. And boiled two bots of water to wash underclothing since Jenn was out.

**WEEK 3 COMPLETE**


Extras

Sat, Aug 12: Gave away 2 microbadges to someone on the list via random roll.
Sun, Aug 13: Donated to nuns that run an elder care facility.
Mon, Aug 14: Wished a friend happy birthday. Helped a stranger with directions.
Tues, Aug 15: Set up Folding@Home on my laptop really late last night. It was probably after midnight, but just to make sure, I also set it up this evening on our desktop (which is sadly slower).

Like the above poster, due to small children, it would be better to all good to charity. :-)

July 22nd: Throwing my wife a surprise baby sprinkle. It's like a shower, except smaller since it's for a second child. This has been 3.5 weeks in the making.

July 23rd: Despite how tight money is at the moment, bringing my family out for a brunch to help support my friends irish band.

July 24: While watching my son, I stumbled upon a random persons video game stream. I saw they were close to getting 2000 followers. So I went a little crazy and got a bunch of friends into her stream to get her over 2000 followers. Don't know her, and this was my first time watching her stream. When I left, I think the follower train was close to 2100. It was pretty awesome!

July 25: We are expecting some company this evening, and Naomi is upset about the state of the house. I asked her politely to sit down, and that i would take care of it. She agreed and I did. Side Note: being 8.5 months pregnant i cannot tell her to sit down... i am sure you all understand why.

July 26: "Honey, I am taking our son out today to give you a little alone time". What did honey do? One of the biggest things on Naomi's list that she wasn't sure if she would get. I tore out all the carpet in the living room. She has been talking about getting this done for months, but was never sure it could happen. It happened. Then after she got home, I asked her to go rest while I took care of everything else. Totally sore right now.

July 27: Thursday! Extra Life meeting day. Talked about how we can help sick kids! Brainstormed more idea in how to get knowledge of Extra Life out into the world more, and what we can do to raise more money for the hospital we support.

July 28: Went to my parents house, to help my father get a set of stairs in place. They didn't ask, i just showed up knowing he was in the middle of that project.

Thank you for hosting this again!

7/22: I stopped at the store to pick up stuff for my roommate this morning and took candy and bars with me to share at the game store today.

7/23: I finished the laundry after I got home tonight and packed up the rest of my roommates salt and pepper collection that didn't fit in the display. I also took pics of what went in each box that I packed.

7/24: I made lunch for a friend.

7/25: Made lunch for my roommate to take to work.

7/26: Brought a bag of candy in to work tonight. I nearly always have some at my work station but I put this bag in the lunch room for everyone to have.

7/27: I could tell from my roommates text about weekend plans that she was really feeling down so on my next break tonight I called her to try to cheer her up a bit. I'll make a lunch for her before going to bed too. Hopefully Friday will be a bit better for her.

7/28: Sent a star on it's way

When I put all my stuff into my car, after shopping in the supermarket, I noticed an old and immobile man struggling to keep balance while handling his mobile phone.
I asked him if he needed help, he said he can't reach his daughter, he wanted her to take him home.
He only lived "around the corner", so I helped him to position himself inside my car and just drove him home.

edit: OMG so hilarious!
Just read what I wrote ..... "immobile man handling this mobile phone ...."
Sorry blush

to help him buy 1000 microbadges in one day.
I alreday gave it to him a couple of weeks ago, but he just bought his badges yesterday, so I hope it counts.
(I suffer gastroenteritis right now, tied to my house and not many chances to practice these random acts of kindness.)

26/7/17
Today the "Bo-frost" guy delivered stuff; I sometimes order frozen vegetables or meat, not whole processed meals.
But there is this sweet stuff that my hubby loves so much, it's called "Kaiserschmarrn".
I had to decide: give up spinach for it? (my freezer was full)
And..... of course!
I gave up my spinach to have room for my hubby's treat. (and I don't even like this stuff) laugh

28/7/17
Went to the graveyard yesterday to take care of my graves.
When I was finished I saw an elderly woman a few meters away, having difficulties to carry full watering cans from the water well to her graves, so I jumped in and carried them for her, 2 times.

31/7/17
Went to the doctor for some blood checks. The waiting room was full, mostly old people, but also a handful of younger men and women.
A pregnant woman comes in, looked like 9th month to me, at least! laugh
After noone offered her their seat, I did it, which she thankfully accepted.

1/8/17
Helped a foreigner with paying his parking ticket on a machine.
He didn't speak one single word of german and generally didn't seem to have a clue about how to work with this kind of automat, in the end I helped him sticking his ticket into the slot so that he could leave.
As a "reward" I got some good laughs. He talked a lot to me, very charming actually, but I didn't get a single word either, and I'm not sure which language it even was, but it were some quite enjoyable minutes.

3/8/17
I saved a spider (big, I mean BIG) in my bathroom, managed to maneuver it into a glass and let it free in the garden.
This is a huge issue for me, two years ago I would have killed it, but I wanted to change my attitude, and since then I save them and put them in the garden.
It costs an enormous amount of will-power for me to do that, because I shiver all the time in anticipation of the spider crawling on me somehow...... gulp

11/8/17
Although I'm almost totally out of order because of my heavy tinnitus attack, I crawled out of my bed when there was "heavy doorbell ringing" early afternoon. And what for? Only to accept 4 big parcels for my neighbours!
They were super happy - well ..... made me happy too

Ok, I think I did it, didn't I?

Looks like fun! I've never participated in one of these before, so I'll give it a try. Thanks for hosting this, Rose!

Day 1 (Jul. 22) - Made a living room fort for my daughter (not much, but it made her happy).

Day 2 (Jul. 23) - Bought a game for a friend.

Day 3 (Jul. 24) - We took our daughter to the park and got her a slushy.

Day 4 (Jul. 25) - Taught bible study, tipped this geeklist to boost it up to 75 because it needed to be rounded up.

Day 5 (Jul. 26) - Washed dishes for my husband- it's usually his job and I'm so thankful for that!!! It was nice to give him a break though.

Day 6 (Jul. 27) - Today was a tiiired day, but I ended up at Barnes and Nobel. Happened upon a bunch of spilled (or maybe purposely-dispersed-by-a-child-with-careless-parents-who-didn't-care-to-pickup-after-their-kid?) Bananagrams and helped an employee pick them up.

Day 7 (Jul. 28) - Took the neighbor lady to the grocery store... honestly, I didn't have a choice, she found out I was going and told me to wait for her. She's, eh... bossy? But she loves my daughter and always wants to spend time with her (I admit, I avoid her sometimes ninja), but I was careful to be polite and even thanked her for coming along and buying my daughter a couple little things. I was sort of looking forward to just having a nice outing with my daughter, though, so I'm counting this as my act of kindness for the day.

P.S. I'm a stay-at-home mom, which makes opportunities for kindness somewhat limited... besides that I may just forget to intentionally preform an act of kindness each day because I'm pregnant and my brain is everywhere! So some of my acts may be very small, but I'll do my best to keep up.

Day 1: 7/23/17 Volunteered to do the website for the local con our friends are starting - Adirondacon
Day 2: 7/24/17 Getting the website up and running - I feel like I will be working on this a lot.
Day 3: 7/25/17 It's a very little thing, but I'm making an extra stop by Rite Aid to pick up flossers because we are out of them. Also, you betcha there will be more web design.
Day 4: 7/26/17 Made dinner (pork chops with peach-tomato salad) and didn't even ask for help with the meat. We usually do this together when we are both working, and dealing with raw meat grosses me out.
Day 5: 7/27/17 Helped a coworker out with her workload. Mine is pretty light since we rotated provider lists.
Day 6: 7/28/17 Bringing snacks to share for game night. I'm excited for this one because the host has so many games I want to try (he has a huge collection - like 3x the size of mine).
Day 7: 7/29/17 Fixed one of my husband's shirts (The many faces of Wash, from Firefly). Came with a hole in the sleeve seam.

Anything for Jen!

Day 1 (Sat, Jul 22): Heard my uncle's TV guide subscription had an issue so got him a copy from the store and delivered it today at his nursing home.
Day 2 (Sun, Jul 23): Offered to pick up my parents from the airport after I heard that they were going to have to get a taxi
Day 3 (Mon, Jul 24): Got up early so I could leave work early to go clean out some boxes from my husband's hobby room that he had been dreading to have to empty. So that was done when he got home. And had a towel waiting for him as it was pouring when he walked home. Poor guy.
Day 4 (Tue, Jul 25): Saw a colleague drowning in work (vacation time so some staffing issues) so offered to take over some of her tasks. Even though my boss told me specifically only to do official backup work I had been assigned. Will have to stay a bit late to finish but it is worth it to keep people in good spirits.
Day 5 (Wed, Jul 26): Made some people happy with some extra game promos I had. Was going to trade them but giving is more fun!
Day 6 (Thu, Jul 27): Playtested a PNP game for a friend
Day 7 (Fri, Jul 28): Gave a friend a place to stay the night (well 2 actually) because she needed it.

I am up for another one of these! They're one of my favorite things on BGG now.

Saturday 7/22 - 7/25 No entries due to being old and forgetful without subscription reminders

Wednesday 7/26 - Brought the trash out for my husband so he didn't have to do it when he got home.

Thursday 7/27 - Helped my mom identify the 3 types of fresh herbs she got in her senior CSA share and gave her tips for freezing/drying/using them. Also, helped a cashier by explaining the reason for the chips in credit/debit cards and how it helps absolve the store of some liability if for some reason there's a data breach.

Friday 7/28 - Stayed up until 7:30 this morning with my husband to keep him company while he did from home overtime work for a project he got pulled into a while back. At that point he was so tired that we went to bed and he got about an hour and a half of sleep before having to get up and head into work to finish the project. I slept a few hours more but I'm still running on a major deficit since I'm someone who needs at least 8 hours of sleep if not more. Helped out a few new CSA members in the farm's herb patch by pointing out the various herbs and suggesting some uses for them since we can pick as much as needed over the season.

Saturday 7/29 - Saw that my husband was getting extra stressed working on his overtime at home work project, so I suggested that he take a break and go outside with me to the garden. We tied up the tomato plants, checked the compost tumbler and then just sat for a little while enjoying the breezes. I think it helped him to step away from the task and do something different.

Sunday 7/30 - Was at the store purchasing several items of clothing and when I got to the register, I pulled all the hangers off them to make things easier/quicker for the cashier. Sent my July geek citizen star out (thank you Stephanie for the reminder!)

Monday 7/31 - Even though I was in the mood to watch TV, I let my husband have the TV to play a video game so he could take a break from the work project from hell.

Tuesday 8/1 - Sent an email to check up on a long time Internet friend who I haven't heard from in quite a while (he falls in and out of touch a lot.)

7/22/17 -- There I was, in the 3rd grocery store of my morning, shopping for uncommon ingredients to cook my daughter her desired birthday dinner, and there was a gentleman checking out (in the self-checkout area) who was a couple bucks short in cash. He was trying to figure out which of a few simple, basic things to remove from his cart. His daughter really wanted the milk, which he was considering... It cost me absolutely nothing, just paying attention and coming up with the solution. I fed my loyalty card information into the register .., and away he went with his full order.
7/23/17 -- While spending time in a local mall today, I witnessed an inattentive parent whose two young boys were playing on an escalator -- running up on the down direction unit. This is very dangerous, and could end in cuts and bruises. I put a stop to their behavior, which I consider an act of kindness. The mother did not.
7/24/17 -- Took a co-worker, having a rough day, out for lunch. Allowed a work "download" for just a bit, and then steered the conversation to other things that they enjoy. Co-worker felt re-energized.
7/24/17(b) -- I told my unreasonable ex-wife to "go fly a kite" (using slightly different words). This was an act of kindness toward myself. whistle
7/25/17 --rubbed my lovely wife's back for a LONG time ... she's sore. Growing a human can do that to you...
7/26/17 -- Today's act of kindness was to not go balistic on a contractor we hired. New backyard irrigation system was tied to the output plumbing line from our water HEATER. Hot water sprays on our new sod at the top of every cycle, emptying our water heater. angry
7/27/17 -- today was being nice to our animals day. Both dogs just came back from a very long walk around the park. That means we all get to sleep well tonight ... maybe.
7/28/17 -- CSI order arrived today which contains a gift for each of my children. Something very small, but will hopefully brighten their day!

That' a lovely idea :
22-7-2017 : bought and give some fruits to a homeless woman at the local market.
23-7-2017 : no grand gesture today. Just helped a kid to go down from a "game" (I don't know the word in English, we call it a spiderweb in France) in a park. He was scared and I was closer than his parents
24-7-2017 : helped an old lady carry her shopping to her car.

This is a great idea and Rahdo cross-posting pulled me in. Thank you for setting it up and being so generous.

I am currently on leave due to stress. So, this exercise in doing something nice for others, doing something positive, will surely help me recover.

Day 1 (Sat, Jul 22): Gave a gift-basket to my parents for supporting me through these troubled times, always being there for me and my wife and always making us feel welcome.
Day 2 (Sun, Jul 23): Helped the neighbours with some gardening.
Day 3 (Mon, Jul 24): Dog-sitting my parents dog, so they can have a night out in Aarhus.
Day 4 (Tue, Jul 25): Agreed with my wife that she would have a great time going away for 4 days, as I run the house.
Day 5 (Wed, Jul 26): Took my parents dog for a walk and a swim, as they were still tired from their trip to Aarhus.
Day 6 (Thu, Jul 27): Picked up my parents out of town and helped them do their shopping, before taking them home.
Day 7 (Fri, Jul 28): Took my mother and their dog for a walk. It did them both good. Then drove my step-daughter to and from work, and to and from a visit with a friend.

This is good. I am so ready for another week of kindness.

First thank you ... this is really generous of you, and that you've done in the past as well ... I saw this yesterday but didn't have time to read it, I read it today and thought that's nice but I'm so stressed and busy this week I don't want to bother ... and then I realized how horrible that is to think and maybe specifically thinking of others and doing acts of kindness will make me feel less stressed


Week 1

Sunday July 23 -- had a falling out with a friend a while ago, they reached out today but I wasn't going to respond, I wasn't sure if I was up for it and I was trying to do too many things at once that I also didn't feel like I had the time ... but then I figured it probably took a lot for them to reach out to me and a person is far more important then the tasks I was doing so I responded and we had a nice conversation (I don't really know if this counts as an act of kindness, but I'm using it for this first day)
Monday July 24 -- took my parents out to eat and the waitress had an injured arm ... plus she was a very nice waitress ... so doubled the tip I would of normally left for good service
Tuesday July 25 -- parked in the back of a store's parking lot and returned all loose carts on my way to the cart return
Wednesday July 26 -- helped a family member clean
Thursday July 27 -- sort of selfish to start with ... but baked brownies --- however when I bake I make 4-6 batches of whatever it is so I have enough to share with my parents, grandpa, my husband's coworkers, for game nights, and then just for us ... so it's pretty time consuming and I wish in this heat didn't need the oven on for so long but hopefully everyone enjoys them and that makes it all worth it
Friday July 28 -- I know we're suppose to write out what we did (so if this doesn't count then that's fine) but it's pretty personal so I'd rather not write about it
Saturday July 29 -- Gave money to charity
Sunday July 30 -- Helped a random person carry groceries to their car

Week 1

Jul 22 Day 1: While on vacation we ran into someone who asked us where to find the location we just came from! It was an awesome stroke of luck, since that was pretty much the only location in the area we would have been able to give directions to!
Jul 23 Day 2: Coming back from our brief two-day vacation, when getting off the ferry, someone overheard us talking about what buses we were going to take back home, and asked where the lightrail station was. Since that was right next to our bus stop, we walked him there - so he wouldn't have to find his way at 10:30 at night in a strange city.
Jul 24 Day 3: More wayfinding! Someone from my old team just moved over to the building I'm in, so I took them around to show them the IT department, and introduced them to several people they will be interacting with.
Jul 25 Day 4: Even more wayfinding! That seems to be the theme of the week, really. I showed my previous boss the name for the printer on our floor and where it is located, so he could print some documents.
Jul 26 Day 5: More introductions of the person from my old team to the people over here - one of the people over here even thanked me for setting up the introduction.
Jul 27 Day 6: We bought and wrapped a birthday gift for a friend. Her birthday is next week, but we were going to a show together last night, and gave her the gift. She was thrilled! She totally wasn't expecting anything - it was great to see how much she liked it.
Jul 28 Day 7: I met my husband at his work for a Chip & Dip competition. We didn't enter this time, but he was there trying them all (I couldn't eat any - I'm allergic to the nightshade family). He diligently voted and we stuck around until the voting was over to applaud the winners.

Week 2

Jul 29 Day 1: Today my husband was wonderful, allowing me to spend 5 and a half glorious hours working on my latest game. So in return I'm letting him play games on my computer this evening. I also made dinner so that he could keep playing.
Jul 30 Day 2: I helped carry dinner back to our RPG game (our group ordered takeout).
Jul 31 Day 3: I went out after work and bought lightbulbs and changed three lights that were burned out in our apartment!
Aug 1 Day 4: I did the dishes before we had friends over for gaming.
Aug 2 Day 5: I showed a coworker the cheaper cafeteria near our work, which is a much better deal than the more expensive but closer places to eat.
Aug 3 Day 6: I showed another coworker the cheaper cafeteria near our work, she was having lunch with her girlfriend, and I walked them over to the cafe so they would know where it is.
Aug 4 Day 7: Walked in to work with my husband because he wanted to walk in the morning, though I would have preferred to bus.

Week 3

Aug 5 Day 1: We took our friend blackberry picking along a trail one of our other friends had told us about. It was an awesome walk and an awesome haul.
Aug 6 Day 2: Made my husband two sandwiches for his lunch on Monday when we got back from gaming in the evening.
Aug 7 Day 3: I've been doing the bulk of vacation planning for next month finding what we are going to see and researching walking paths, bus routes, and train routes for how to get there, since I know my husband gets tired of doing most of the planning (he is the one who usually does this, and he did deal with getting all the tickets for travel).
Aug 8 Day 4: Got some purple highlighters from work to give to one of my gaming friends. She loves them and they are so hard to find - but my work has lots of them! And to make sure she ate dinner, I shared half of my leftovers with her (she has a habit of not eating enough when her partner is out of town, which he is tonight).
Aug 9 Day 5: Let my husband play games on my computer while I wrote my weekly blog on his laptop.
Aug 10 Day 6: Washed the dishes last night while my husband played games on my computer.
Aug 11 Day 7: I made breakfast for Saturday Friday night, since my husband wanted to get up early on Saturday so he could go on a long bike ride (the smoke in the air has finally cleared up!)

Mon 31 - Offered to send someone a file if they can't find it.

Fri 4 - Watered lots of plants at work.

Entry 2:

7/29/17 -- Making a vegetable enriched meal for my wife and daughter. They are craving veggies. Shopping trip and chopping and sauteing like a demon...
7/30/17 -- We noticed our sweet elderly neighbor is now carrying around an oxygen tank. So, today, after mowing my own lawn, I mowed hers.
7/31/17 -- Mother-in-Law has a big number birthday tomorrow. Cut a rather large check to my wife this morning to pay for an extravagent surprise party. SSSSHHH!
8/1/17 -- same sweet neighbor from above I saw unloading groceries from her car. Before she could make it back out to her car from her first load I had the rest of her groceries on her porch.
8/2/17 -- I did not LOSE it when my.wife kicked my butt in a game tonight. Wait, that's not kindness. That's experience. Real act of kindness: co-worker's car broke down, she called me. I took care of getting her in to work, getting her car to the shop, and getting her home after work. She is VITAL to my successful day at the office!
8/3/17 -- helped a co-worker with a massive data collection project that was dropped in their lap.
8/4/17 -- Last thing in the world I wanted to do tonight, after a hard day at work, was cook. I LOVE to cook. Nope, not tonight. Wasn't going to do it. But .., my pregnant wife had a desire for one of my specialities...

Week 2:

So, this proved to be a nice thing to focus on last week. A lot of my kindness revolved around helping my parents and spending quality time with their adoring 2-year old dog.

She is a great way to relax, no strings, just pure love.

Day 1 (Sat, Jul 29): Visited my parents and took my mother and their dog for a walk along the sea. Wonderful - and appreciated - they only go out when I come along.
Day 2 (Sun, Jul 30): Another visit with cake, walk and a swim.
Day 3 (Mon, Jul 31): Visit to a good friend of mine, who is on early-retirement. Talked for about 1 hour. Good visit. Icecream, walk and swim in the afternoon.
Day 4 (Tue, Aug 1): Going swimming with my stepdaughter, wife and dog. She really enjoyed herself today.
Day 5 (Wed, Aug 2): Day-trip to Aarhus with my wife and stepdaughter for visiting IKEA and going shopping according to the latters wishes.
Day 6 (Thu, Aug 3): This should count. I have taken the day off. Cancelled all appointments and am just doing me-things.
Day 7 (Fri, Aug 4): Another visit to my friend. Another afternoon with my parents and gave a videogame to a steam-friend.

Another great week where the focus has been on positives and being kind to one another, and to myself. Respecting my own limitations and taking time out to recover.

Week Two:

July 29: I made lunch (a can) and dinner (a box, but I actually had to add stuff to it and cook it) today, just have dishes to finish up before the night is over.

July 30: I gave my WNBA Lynx ticket stub to my roommate for the gas discount so she can fill her car tomorrow.

July 31: Spent the morning with a friend and had lunch with her before heading in to work.

Aug. 1: oopswhistle I guess this will be an 8-day week.

Aug. 2: Just a little something today, I shared my strawberries with a co-worker.

Aug. 3: Treated my Dad to lunch today and had a good visit with him before heading in to work. As I had a little time between lunch and work I stopped at the thrift store. The elderly gentleman ahead of me had more than he could carry out out in one trip so left an item behind while he took the first part out. After I finished paying I took his last item out to him so he didn't need to make an extra trip into the store. I also sent off this months gift Star today.

Aug. 4: It's school supply sale time which means it's time to buy for the Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes that I put together. Not everything that's on sale will fit in a shoebox so the items like loose leaf paper are donated locally. Did some extra housework before heading to bed.

Aug. 5: Instead of going to play games today I stayed home so we could get some much needed cleaning and organizing done. Then at 9:30 I headed to a FLGS that was running a 24-hour game marathon for charity, 11 hrs and 7 games (4 new to me) later I made it home.

WEEK II

Going to see if I can keep it going...

Day 1: (July 30th 2017) Instead of pitching some food items (carrots and some bread) I chopped them up for the wild bunnies and birds that I see around.

Day 2: (July 31st 2017) Help a friend with some online data entries.

Week 2


7/29. Taught a family how to Raid in Pokemon Go during a pokemon walk i was helping host. Most of the people that showed up were treating the family pretty poorly. I was upset at them... in the end, the two you boys that were playing got to fight an Articuno. They were very happy.

7/30. Friend of mine wanted to get a few of his mates together to play board games, but doesn't have a place to do it. So i offered up my place for him to play. And i am not even going to be playing.

7/31. This is getting rough, only because I am staying at home a lot more, now that Naomi is starting to have some rumblings. (She is 8.5 months pregnant). I know some people would say, doing nice stuff for her counts, but I always do nice stuff for her. She is my wife after all. Her cousin came over to help me move Audin's bed into his room. After we were done, he was talking about a job he was going to go for. So I showed him how to get there, and what he could expect from the interview.

8/1. A few random people were having a hard time beating a boss in Marvel Heroes Omega. So I jumped into their group, and helped them out. Again, best I could do being that I have been home with Naomi here the last few days.

8/2. Naomi offered to take Audin out with her to her appointment so I could get some me time since that is going to come to an end. I said no, and I am keeping Audin with me so Mommy can get some me time after her appointment.

8/3. Naomi had more appointments, and I kept the boy again for the day. We watched curious george, colored, ran around... but when I was about to take him outside, it started thundering. So we watched the rain, and ended up just hanging out. Something I normally don't do in there... color. It stresses me out when I color with him normally. ;-)

8/4. Stopped to visit a friend of mine that is having some mental health troubles. I just let him know if he needed anything that I was there and that I am not here to push. Also, you can talk to me about this stuff I am not going to think you are weird of outcast. People in the states have this HUGE issue talking about mental health issues, it's silly!

Day 1: 7/30/17 Stayed up really late working on the Adirondacon website (WIP), so I just changed the bunnies' hay myself and tried not to wake up the husband. Went wine tasting with the in-laws.

Day 2: 7/31/17 Giving out a Citizenship Star, because apparently I haven't done that this month yet whistle Went to a con planning meeting.

Day 3: 8/1/17 Getting a head start on sending out my Citizenship Star this month - the complete antithesis of last month whistle (also more web design).

Day 4: 8/2/17 I feel like all I did was chores last night; I tried to do them all promptly, but we still got to bed late/the normal time. Made dinner, dishes, clean rabbits' cage, and we watched a movie because that was what my husband wanted to do. Did not get enough sleep, though soblue so exhausted this week. I also made us mango matcha dragonberry rum smoothies.

Day 5: 8/3/17 We ate out at my husband's request even though our fridge is full; got mint klondike bars because my husband wanted a treat.

Day 6: 8/4/17 Called my mom. I get so frustrated talking to her on the phone because I keep having to repeat myself and can't hear what she is saying 1/2 the time. Also, we watched another movie instead of playing the game I've had setup for 3 weeks soblue

Day 7: 8/5/17 Let my husband sleep in until almost noon. Made a quick & simple brunch for us.
