    Atrytone Tackles the Life Wheel

    Don't stress, mine is pretty crappy in a few areas as well. As a wheel it would make for a good sled. Your start is your start. Pick one area and focus on improving things there. Then once you feel happier about that life area choose the next life area. Sent from my CPH1725 using Tapatalk

    Thom coaches himself

    Works more along the lines of affirmations. You reframe a limiting belief (negative thought) and then focus your attention on the new thought/belief that will help you move forwards in your life. Sent from my CPH1725 using Tapatalk

    Thom heads to the bar, grabs his meal and his drink. Sits at a table and waits to see who will join him. Glad to rest after the close call with the Wawi. Sent from my CPH1725 using Tapatalk

    He ended up coming after all! But he didn't bring her, I guess they had a fight. I tried to suss out if he's doing okay... I think it's all just a combo of a lot of things. Figuring out stuff in a new relationship, new system at work, and his house is getting renovated because they found some water damage.. Anyways! I feel better for having seen him in person. There was talk of going for brunch this morning, but me being me, I'll probably just cook an elaborate meal here

    This is way too true to life! And it’s even worse because it’s a tornado you have to feed and clothe and love. I love your goals and your motivation to be healthy for your family. Looks like you’re off to a great start! Can’t wait to see your progress.

  11. Update for Apr. 19 Workout: With no work for the day, I was able to get my lifting done in the morning. Eat Right: I got back on track with it. No Fast Food: We spent a large part of the day traveling to my in-laws and we stopped at Dunkin Donuts, but I only got a coffee. Success. Daily Cleanup: We stayed the night at my in-laws, so there was no late night cleaning opportunity. I am declaring it a no contest.

    A friend took this photo of Pietermaritzburg (Pmb) from World's View, a little hill on the outskirts of town. This is just the one side, basically. There are actually more to all the sides, but city centre proper has more buildings to the left of this photo. Our suburb would be more to the bottom right hand side, way outside the photo's edge.

    Hope your brother is ok. Maybe the new girlfriend doesn't want to share, or come with him because I think you mentioned you were friends with the old girlfriend? That logo is awesome! I wouldn't mind wearing a t-shirt like that at all.

    Yip, why I thought that for now I'll just clean the house out a bit. The really big decisions we'll keep for closer to the time, when we know for a fact that Brandt has a job, and we'll know when we have to move by. So far it looks like we have three options with regards to moving and costs of moving: Rent a 40ft container, and take a car, and basically everything we want to, with. It is about R120 000/NZ$12 000 (US$8 000), and takes roughly 3 months (depending on when you load and arrive in NZ). The ship only goes so often to NZ. Rent a 20ft container, and take NO car, but all the big things like beds, w.machine, dryer, fridge, freezer, and a lot of boxes with everything we should need. Also takes about 3 months, and costs between NZ$6000-NZ$8000. Sell everything and only take a small Move It Cube, <10ft. Is pricy, and you can't take much over. But can be arranged for basically anytime. So you won't have to wait for your stuff. We can also put as much as possible in the 4x30kg suitcases that we can fly with. Normally about 20-25kg, but if you prove that you are emigrating then Qantas and Emirates allow you up to 30kg suitcases per person. So chances are that we'll take the 20ft container option and load as much as possible in there, especially of the big stuff, like w.machine, tumble dryer, fridge, freezer, and all Brandt's tools. Around Jan/Feb we looked up what can be bought for NZ$12 000 (instead of the big container), and we can buy a small car and some of the necessary things, but not everything that you can load into a 40ft container. If we take the 20ft container and use the price difference on a car in NZ it seems to work out most cost effectively. But we can only make a final decision as we get proper quotes, and not work on estimations. With regards to Brandt's sporting gear: it might be cheaper to have it inspected and sanitized, than to replace it. They will just be older, maybe not as good/safe?, and NZ makes you pay a fine on bringing certain 'prohibited' things into the country: scuba/spear diving gear (contamination with other ocean life), wooden furniture (again some kind of contamination scare, insects, borers?), dog baskets and blankets (fleas, etc. scare), no plants (to protect their indigenous plants), no animal products, etc. They have a list, but no specified penalty fee that I could see. They just mentioned a customs/border inspection will be done and charged for, and a penalty will be charged for prohibited items. We were discussing some things Friday night. Brandt then mentioned that he'd realised that if a job comes up where the company is prepared to pay either Visa applications and/or the move, he just has to take it, because those offers come around rarely, and would save us a lot of money. Then he can't wait till end of the year, he has to grab the job, if possible. I've mentioned it to him before, but he didn't answer me then.

    Flea’s Super Secret Mystery Challenge!

    Well, at least your sinuses will be clear
  25. I was thinking of assigning 1 point for each 10 minutes spent in whatever activity. But then, yes, as you point out, things that are short but hard to do, like a cold shower, give a small reward in points... Maybe I'll just stick to my time measurement for this challenge, and add the traditional stats for my character, and think of a different system later if this one doesn't get me where I want. Nice spreadsheet. I like the colors, makes it clearer to read than the usual grey/white ones.
