30 Deeds for 30 Days - Day 11

I forgot to post yesterday's deed again. Maybe it's because right now I'm sort of involved in some stupid internet drama crap that's so middle school I can't even believe it. I've been both the hurter and the hurtee in this whole thing and right now it's eating up a lot of my time and energy and goodwill. So I feel stupid talking about some dumb little thing I did to try to improve things when I feel like I'm really just making things worse.

To be honest I'm also more than a little let down by how this whole campaign is going. I know there are a few people out there doing but no one is leaving comments like I had hoped they would. The mom-oriented website that was going to help me promote this seemed to kind of never get around to it. Frankly, this whole thing has just become one giant buzzkill for me. I don't even want to log in and update my blog because it just makes me feel sort of sad.

Am I done with 30/30? I don't know. I guess it probably doesn't matter that much one way or the other. In case I decide not to stop I'll just go ahead and talk about yesterday's deed. While Joseph was having OT yesterday I tracked down all the various therapists that he's worked with and thanked them for all the hard work that they had done with them. I told them how much of a difference that they made with him and how much I appreciated their dedication and compassion and their ability to kick Joseph's butt and make him learn the skills that he needed in order to move forward. And I meant it all too. We've been very lucky in that Joseph has always had great people working with him.

So maybe I'll update later with today's deed. Maybe not. Maybe I'll just throw the computer away and never use the internet again.

Jen, I look forward to seeing the creative deeds that you do. I'm sure that Joseph's therapists were happy to hear how much you appreciate their efforts with Joseph. No good deed is too small. They mean as much as the big ones. Please don't stop doing them! You may not see the results of the deeds until much later, and maybe not ever. You are doing good, so please keep it up! Love you...Judy

I have your logo on my site. I am not real good at posting my deeds because I feel they are so trivial. You are so much better.

Please don't stop. It is so nice to see nice things posted on here and not negative.

What you're doing here is a great thing, but such is the internet. It takes a lot to really get people to notice. I think if you stick with it and see it through, then next year you'll have even more participation.

I just haven't had time to post, but I always read and am impressed by your deeds, large and small.

My deed was that I saw the guy that stole a bunch of money from me and I didn't kick him in the crotch. That took a lot.

You also did a great deed of just showing up (even though I yelled at you)! Stay up, you're doing great.
