My sister leads an alternative lifestyle. Very artsy/bohemian/hippie kind of thing. She's also the kind of person who doesn't believe in vaccines. And now it turns out she somehow had missed this whole covid thing. She's been hanging out with friends, going to the stores etc as if nothing was going on. Being the alternative kind of person she is, she also doesn't like this whole Christmas thing and giving or receiving gifts. So usually she stays at home at her place during the holidays. But this year, of all frickin years she decides she wants to come and celebrate Christmas. And not just one day, not even two days, but three days! 23-25th. And she thought it would be a good idea to bring her new boyfriend and his kid as well. I can't even! 


Best today: I'm proud of my son. He's really trying his best to learn about the parts that go into a computer, so that he can build his own gaming rig

Worst today: Frustration re my sister

Looking forward to tomorrow: Pre-christmas party. It's going to be very different compared to how we've traditionally done it, but at least we're able to do *something*

Yes. Me, my family, my brother and his girlfriend were all like (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻


But finally I managed to talk at least a little sense into her. She agreed to come later, after me and my brother had left. But she still brought her new boyfriend and his kid, and she's still staying for three days with my parents. 


Best today: Christmas gifts!

Worst today: Overeating Christmas foods

Looking forward to tomorrow: Playing with my new things (I bought myself some wifi wall sockets/outlets, among other things) 


My mom gave me the best thing today

Not freaking acceptable, any part of that.

I felt like I could run forever, like I could smell the wind and feel the grass under my feet, and just run forever.

Challenge wrap-up


These were my goals

Push-up challenge in the NF Prime app

Holiday mini challenge here with all you folx 

Prepping our dining room for paint

E-commerce side business


Posting here about my day


And this is how it all went


Push-up challenge in the NF Prime app

I was a couple of days late with the last workout, and I was going to push it until tomorrow, but because I wanted to be able to write it down as a win I just now completed it :)  The push-up challenge continues for a while longer, but for this three week holiday challenge I completed all workouts, so 100% a win! ✔️


Holiday mini challenge here with all you folx 

I did great the first two weeks. This last week was more difficult, but I didn't skip it entirely, and did get two points in at least. So over-all I'm going to count this as a win ✔️


Prepping our dining room for paint

My goal was to move all the stuff out of the room and cover the floors so we could start mudding the walls and then paint.



As you can see there is a small strip of the floor closest to the wall that I still need to cover, but we ran out of paper. But! We did start with the mudding, which wasn't part of the challenge, so I think that makes up for the missing floor cover. Counting this as another win ✔️


E-commerce side business

The goal was to make it possible for a customer on the site to add both internal and external items to a shopping cart, and to proceed to check-out and pay for the items.

Implementing the payment stuff turned out to be much more work than I anticipated. But I finally finished it got it working yesterday. And today I got the internal/external products stuff working as well.

My guess is that I've spent around 35 hours working on this over the last three weeks. It's so much fun though, so it's totally worth it! ✔️



This went so much better than expected! Videos of squats (with my son on my shoulders) and dumbbell deadlifts were posted in the Squatmas thread. ✔️

A very long time since I've felt this level of DOMS though. Brutal!

I did so well on this the first two weeks, but then I dropped the ball :(  So this goal is a bust



Over-all I'm happy with the challenge. Always feel like I could have done more, but looking back I'm happy with what I've accomplished. Now I'm looking forward to a new challenge though. 

Thanks to all of you who have read, commented and reacted to my posts. I love your support ❤️
