Okay ladies, Kelli and I talked a little more about this, and I think we're going to hold off to do this until the summer, when some people have more free time and we don't have as many events planned. I am GLAD to see though, there were a LOT of people who liked the idea (of 12 people voting, 11 voted yes) so we will definitely keep it in mind...

In the mean time, I LOVED Jenny's idea, and it seemed like a lot of others did too, to do a household challenge...we're not going to do a point system here, but in the Greenhouse, I am going to do a daily or every 2 day (we'll see how participation is and feedback) small household challenge! I KNOW I neglect important household tasks, so I am going to start that today!

Sorry ladies, I hope none of you got too far into doing any of the tasks and we'll see how it works out to do more this summer...

See ya in the greenhouse!

I love this idea and hope to see more things that are not computer time related too. Like...maybe things like make your bed, clean your toilet, your room, lo's room, fridge, paint your nails, take a bath.....and then take a pic and post it. I need things to help me get the daily crap done and remember sometimes taking a little me time is good. Oh maybe sending a thank you or thinking of you card too. Our pictures would be proof.

I love these, but I rarely participate because of my challenge on time I may post just for fun, but I know I won't be in the running for any winning

I LOVE the idea! and especially love momma-j's suggestion. I for sure could use some motivation to do some stuff around the house (and for me). I think this is fantastic and I'm really excited about it!

*off to take a pic of my LO sleeping*

Ditto. I love the idea but am on here so sporadically (pretty much always consistent with when I have time off). Getting ready to work another bunch of shifts in a row now so will only be able to check in for the next few days on my phone but not likely post too much.

Sounds like a lot of fun though. Good luck!

sounds very fun, but I just don't have time to do all that!! I do love the idea of Jens...with getting stuff done off the computer! And I like the idea of pics for proof.

I thought about doing a while back something similiar...like a cleaning challenge day. ....Today clean your bathroom and post before and after pics. Something like that....so Jens idea is kinda similiar only way better! hehe

Jenny, I think that's definitely a WONDERFUL idea.

I think maybe we could incorporate 3 JM things, and 4 non-computer (take a pic for proof) kind of things?

*Part* of the challenge is to spice up the board and JM as a whole, so things like welcoming new guests and everything, are important. But I think you're right, it's definitely PERFECT to do both online and offline because family and our homes are #1.

The next challenge will definitely be centered more around that if people are interested.

That being said, since the challenge for this week is up, whoever wants to participate can, and like Gwynne said, even if you want to do some of them, "just for fun", please participate!

Jenny, you rock!

...oh...and ladies as you complete them, just edit your post above and include your links!

I love challenges and they are a lot of fun. I participated in one in the March 08 PR in the fall. However now that I'm back to work, I probably won't have time to do much.
