I'm doing what Ken L did! I'm choosing to say 'no' to this challenge. In his words, "Then I would be completing the challenge, so I would actually be saying yes. How's that for a paradox?"
I'd like to thank Ken...I was way to tired for a challenge this evening!
Day 4 with David N! :)

Not a problem, it is easy for mr to say no. Like i was two when it comes to things i don't want to do.
The exception being family things during the holidays - i give in but i don't do as much as everyone asks of me. And over the years they have learned not to ask why not - because i am not always polite when pushed.
Helen is it already day 5!!!!

Wow...I've learned to say "NO" all of the time!! I'm a virtual "No" recorder!! LOL!! I guess being a mom to a newly turned teenager, who's testing her boundaries, makes NO a necessary part of one's vocabulary.

I can't believe it is already day 4 Miss Lisa Renae! Week is just flying by!
I could totally have a little rant about this because half the time I want to say no but end up saying yes anyways is due to a thing called "obligation." Trust me, if I don't want to do something I have no problem saying no, but there are situations when you just have to bite the ...see more

see, I need a challenge that says "pledge to say yes." Often I say no for the exact reason of avoiding stress but then I always end up doing nothing because I spend my time trying to avoid stress which is a stress in it's self.
I really discovered, I can't run or hide from stress and anxiety, I always thought as I would get older it would disappear but I see now it's not about losing it, it's ...see more
How about I say 'no' to this challenge? Then I would be completing the challenge, so I would actually be saying yes. How's that for a paradox?
I buddy was telling me that there was aS.W.A.T. team down-town the other day looking for a person of interest. I said, "I wonder what they mean by that. Do you suppose they were tracking down a terrorist?"
"I don't know," he said.

I am usually pretty good about this, but did committ to something in a few weeks that is going to make me really rush, and be stressed, to get to another event that starts right after, and I have to travel between them. Regret saying yes, but will honor both.
PA is very warm, but cloudy so far, with periods of rain forecasted.
Hope everyone has a nice Friday.
