It’s been almost four months since we have written a post for this blog. It has been difficult to have adventures as both Dan and Carolyn have had health issues. For Dan, nothing has been the same since his cancer surgery. His leg has been declining and he is in so much pain all the time that getting out to have adventures in the old sense of the word has become impossible. We realize this means we have to reinvent our definition of adventure and work within the confines of our limitations. At least for now. So here is a brief update of what Carolyn has been up to this November.
On November 4, Carolyn took the new volunteer orientation training at the Idaho Humane Society. Her first assignment will be as a door greeter at the shelter on Black Friday. In addition, as an ongoing craft project Carolyn and her friends have been working on making no-sew fleece blankets to donate to the shelter. They hope to finish most of them on Sunday so the animals will have a soft Thanksgiving!
Carolyn has also been working to catch up on her blogging. Because of all her success at entering sweepstakes, Carolyn created a blog to teach people how to win prizes and talk about information related to entering sweepstakes. You can find that blog at YOUCANBEAWINNER. And while she has been struggling to keep up with her FLYING PIGS writing blog, she recently updated that as well.
Carolyn has been spending much of her free time entering sweepstakes. It’s a fun and easy hobby that, with persistence and consistency, can really pay off. In the past couple of months she has won a gold Playstation 4, 2 $10 Starbucks gift cards, a $30 Regal cinema gift card, 2 Disney movie tickets, a baseball cap autographed by NASCAR star Ricky Stenhouse, Jr., enough Shop Your Way Reward points to buy an infinity scarf, and lots of candy bars!
Please send your best thoughts and wishes to Dan who will continue to see specialists to try to figure out a plan of action to improve his pain. Thanks for reading!
