My partner and I are doing prep work tonight on a brunch that we’ll take tomorrow to some friends who recently had a baby. To make it easier on my partner, I went out and bought all the ingredients for the brunch.
And that brings me to the end of Round One, and my thoughts on where to go from here.
I enjoyed the 29 Day Giving Challenge. I intend to someday come back here and do a Round Two. But for now, I need to sign off. My house is under contract, if all goes well I’ll be out of a house end of April, and I don’t yet have a new one. So my partner and I need to find a place to live, and to pack up and move. All the while I have an ever-expanding list of duties at work, with several business trips and multiple-day meetings this month. We also scheduled a four-day vacation this month (not expecting that my house would sell this soon!)
I want to really dedicate myself whenever I do undertake Round Two. I felt that too many of my gifts in Round One were things I would have done anyway. With real life being hectic, I didn’t feel that I devoted myself to really seeking out gifts I wouldn’t normally have given to people who normally wouldn’t have received them. I didn’t push myself like I had wanted to. (I did try – twice! – to donate blood but both times the donation center was closed). So, I’m signing off for now but hope to rejoin this community later.
Much love to everyone! This is the most supportive and loving community that I’ve had the honor to be a member of. I hope to return soon.
