I would try for a week, then build on that. A month is a long time and a bit daunting.

Haha! That is too cute a response. Were you being sarcastic? Or did you mean it sincerely? Sometimes, we have to live the those usual aches and pains. Is it complaining just to mention them? Didn't sound like you were complaining to me!

Lori -

It is so true that we each have different triggers and can learn to cope with them in a gentle manner. Something that bothers one person could be quite fine to another person.

It's lovely that you had such a beautiful day!

I think Lori is right and it's about how it was said. If it was said with a smile, to indicate things were going relatively well, then that is great!

Some people might have said "well, my hip is aching, and my stomach is giving me trouble, and ..." and that would be in the complaining category smile.

Dear Connie - I wouldn't even aim for 7 consecutive days yet. It'll take a while - probably - to get to that stage. I would just try for 3 days, if you haven't made it to that yet. It can take a while to even get to 3 days! And once you've made it that far, you increase it to 5 days, and so on.

The 1 month goal is the long term goal smile. So far I can't even make it to 5 days. This time might be the time!

No, Lori, (LOL) I wasn't being sarcastic. People who know me personally know that I have two forms (and most likely 3) of arthritis, Fibromyalgia and a few other ailments that cause severe pain. They know that I have very few good days (with little to know pain). So, they usually laugh along with me and most can relate with their own physical conditions.

But, when I'm having a good day and they ask how I'm doing, I tell them "today is a good day".

That is great, that you are able to take your health in the grand scheme of things and celebrate the good days. Well done!

LOL that's OK, I had a glitch.

It involved driving in pouring rain, trying to answer the phone while driving in said rain, being late, and being scolded for being late.

So note to self - just don't answer phones while driving in rain smile.

So I'm on No Complain reboot 15, Day 2. Which is fine! Today is a fresh day.

How are you guys doing?

Aw. Well, I think you're super just to have only ONE glitch. I need to work on keeping it to one glitch a DAY! LOL.

I was doing great the other day until two of the dogs got into my bag and ate the snack I'd made for my son. I didn't know it was in there. My daughter stuck it there without my knowing or I would have taken it out! Not only did the dogs eat some plastic, they got food all over the place.

Then, yesterday we discovered that one of the begins to HOWL horribly when I'm gone! None of the neighbors reported it. She didn't know someone was home and she howled. This isn't a one time thing as now someone has caught her three times. I'm terribly concerned about annoying the neighbors so I need to do something to keep her occupied while I'm gone. I thought having two dog friends would be enough...

Today, I had to go through some effort to change my schedule with my aunt so I could be back in time to get my husband to the dentist for a tooth extraction. He wouldn't be able to drive himself after the anesthetic. Well, I made it back home in time only to learn that he had cancelled his appointment earlier that day.

Not a big deal. But like lint, these incidents can be annoying even if it doesn't take much to brush them off.
