Wow...where do I start.
Our son and nephew both took the ALS challenge last night, they never expected me to find some ice, but I found it, thanks to the bowling alley, who also filled up the bin for us to us.
I went in the pool today, after finding it'd lost nearly 4" of water since yesterday when my son and I filled it up again. I found 2 more holes, on the posts, in the liner. That now makes 7 holes on posts in the liner that's only 3 years old. It's a liner that has a 20 year warranty. My husband and I decided we're going to hire someone to put another liner in, in the spring, because all the money we've spent on chemicals, we're not going to waste them. They'll also be bringing the water to fill the pool, too.
This is ridiculous, the other place still hasn't called us back.
I also made a video in response to those who post links and videos putting down the Ice Bucket Challenge. In it I challenge them to sit for one hour with a diaper on; not moving, not speaking, not talking; having someone feed them, change their diaper and clean them up in every way. And if they can do it, and not see the ALS Challenge in a different way, still saying it's not helping anything...then I'll donate $5 to ALS...BUT they have to prove in the video it was done for an hour without any movement at all on their part, but for their eyes, and turning their head a little.
I'm waiting to see if anyone takes the challenge. I lost a good friend to ALS in 2012 (which I mention in the video), and I'm just tired of people who put it down. As of today they've raided $62.2 million and you have no idea how much awareness. This has been their best fundraiser EVER.
Anyway, I'm getting ready to go eat, so I'll let you go, have a beautiful day, and always smile.
