Okay... so the big "challenge cheerleader" starts OK then falls off a cliff. I swear I looked under challenges, but something in my brain unhooked... I forgot to click it if it wasn't a sticky topic... I just thought Sue was really busy with her fundraiser and canning. Didn't think it was like you Sue, to miss it, but didn't find enough time or gumption to look further or question.

Now... torn as to whether to participate or not... not encouraging to start during Thanksgiving week, but was so looking forward to participating. Will decide by tomorrow and either participate or cheer for you who are not behaving like "Bears of Very Little Brain" this month as I am.

Thought I owed you all an explanation at the very least.

Okay, I haven't taken part yet (sorry about that), but I'm going to try and keep track this week. (Strange that I'm choosing one of my busiest weeks of the year work-wise to participate, huh? LOL)

* That I have a job, crazy as it is right now.
* That my mom is still with us this Thanksgiving
* That my son will be home for Thanksgiving as well

(Am I tallying this up right? For the water & fruits/veggies, do we only get a point when we have the 8 or 5 for the day? And one point a day, for each of those?) I think I need a little refresher course, LOL)

Sue I'm so, so sorry...I didn't see yours, I looked for it, but I never saw it, I am SO sorry!!!

I just went back and looked, and now I see it..the title is reversed from what the other titles have been (Week 4 November Challenge, vs. November Challenge - Week 4), so when I scanned the list, I didn't see it..I am so sorry :(

Um, Tina? I already started a thread for this yesterday. If everyone wants to use this one, it's fine. But PLEASE don't use both - I'll end up way too confused!
