  1. Yeah, so, sorry about falling off the planet again. I have a couple of things come up, so here is the... Challenge Update This is totally informal, but here goes. In general, I am now moving a lot more. With bringing Fifteen to cross country practice 4 days a week, I am usually able to get some exercise in then (not so much this week, as I had to use one of those times to foodshop and another to do something at home). Overall, I think I am doing at least 5,000 steps a day at least 5 days a week. We did a really long hike up Kennesaw Mountain one Sunday, and i had over 17,
  2. Cool. Had no idea that existed. I might be able to drag the Hobbit out to a meetup. I know I have not been so successful in the past, so definitely do not plan around me.
  3. Glad to hear that surgery went well and that the little one is making progress in recovery! It is impressive how you kept up with your challenge in the middle of all of that.
  4. Love to see those back muscles (and you climbing)! Congrats on keeping up with your goals!
  5. No reason to mess with what works, right? You have a lot of side goals - I will be interested to see you take up Icelandic again.
  6. Thanks! We do have a sync/cloud backup system in place that I installed a few years back, but it doesn't automatically save emails (We use Outlook) unless I manually back up the file. Since most of our client communication is in the Outlook emails, not having them would have been a problem. I guess it makes sense that the file won't back up automatically, considering the Hobbit's outlook archive .pst is something like 5 GB. I think doing the ghost image backup is probably enough, especially with SugarSync running and backing up the email. It's more just the habit of actually doing it e
  7. Yeah, so, doing more moving went well for the rest of the challenge, but getting on NF to answer you all and keep up with everyone's threads, not so much. Going to try to get some responses done and a quick challenge recap up tonight and tomorrow. I have the basic step tracker in my phone and use Argus to interpret it. I know it is not 100% accurate, but it is enough for my purposes. Judging from what I have seen in your thread, I think you understand the feeling. And yes, that's exactly how I feel...
  8. Glad to see that your challenge went well, in spite of all the stress you were under. Congrats on that award - it sounds like you definitely deserved it!
  9. I have thought about switching to Linux for years. There are 2 reasons I have not done it yet: 1) Linux would cause us trouble with work, either because of not having filetypes that were easy to transfer back and forth with our clients or because of not being able to find all the software we need (the Hobbit HATES cloud applications); 2) Using Linux would be too complex for the Hobbit and possibly both kids to handle (I think my younger son would be fine, but not sure about the other family members). If I don't switch, I know I at least need to get a LOT better about doing recovery discs
  10. Hugs for Lara..... I know a bit of what you were feeling (I have had at least 1 miscarriage). As one of those people who did not plan my kids arrivals (they were "pleasant surprises"), I greatly respect your decision to wait. My biggest regret is that I did not start healing my own emotional issues until a few years ago, and I know it had a big impact on my kids. I do think you still have a good chance at having children. I have had many childbirth students who are older and had very healthy pregnancies. My specialty is not fertility, but let me know if you want to discuss it in some de
  11. (Most of) Week 2 Bulk Update So it has been an on & off week. Some great things and some issues that meant I didn't move as much as I would like, but it is still an ok "start. Monday - Did a bit of light gardening, planting a few flowers, digging out some weeds in the herb garden patch, and planting some of the herbs. I would have done more, but I decided to go to game night after all (we moved it away from our house). I'm glad I did because we had a GREAT time. Tuesday Not much... Wednesday Woke up over 30 minutes earlier than usual
  12. Well, *some* of the herbs are planted, though I can't say how good the dirt is. FWIW, I also have some plants that I obtained previously that are not yet planted. I think the oldest is 4 years... One spent those years living in a plastic garbage bag because it is a native plant I collected locally from a construction site. Thanks! The front is looking pretty good (except the herb garden). The back has to be a project for another time, though. It can be an overwhelming project. I love planning and starting to plant, then partway through the process I
  13. Interesting. I guess they use slightly different muscles?
  14. Ok, so who is going to set up our Melting Cartwheels accountabilibuddy group? I'm in, Lol [emoji13] [emoji1]
  15. Sorry to hear that things are rough right now. Relationships are hard. :/ I hope you can re-invent your life in a way that works well for you (and that minimal reinventing is required). Using awesome technology to communicate from anywhere.
