Spare change

My inner sloth was just waiting for her chance to take over. At lunchtime, I watched a couple of shows on hulu. And then I watched a few episodes of Children’s Hospital. And then before I knew it the schoolbus was coming and I hadn’t accomplished nearly as much as I wanted to. Stress.

Whatever. It will get done eventually. Probably. Taking time out to watch TV in the middle of the day felt decadent. Which is a little sad when you think about it.

Today I had hoped to bring flowers to my Meals on Wheels clients, but I was told that that isn’t allowed. Allergies. Phooey.

So instead, I’m going to leave quarters in the gumball and vending machines for kids to find. Note to self: must do this without my children, or the money will come right back home again.

    Gumballs for strangers? That has to be the coolest idea I’ve heard in a long, long time. What a neat way to share the happy!

    Amazing. What an amazing idea!

    The quarters in the gumball machines — you just blew my mind! If you could find a way to put those gumball machines in glass elevators with lots of buttons, you’ll be setting up the best random act of kindness ever created.
