It's My Party...


I've decided that I really shouldn't have started a month-long party at the last minute, two days before I left on a much needed vacation, and without much forethought or planning.

My heart was in the right place but my brain was definitely disengaged.

So for the few people who participated by commenting on the PUSH Goal Party posts—Tristi, Jeri, Gaynell, Cindy, Melissa, Suan and Rebecca—you will each be receiving a prize.

I had planned to give away eBooks as prizes—and I probably will still do that—but which book(s) I give away is still up in the air because my PC laptop (the one I use to create said eBooks) totally freaked out. I have to do a complete system/hard drive wipe and re-install. (Dratted PC viruses!)

The good news is that I regularly back up everything on that computer so I haven't lost anything—but it will be a little while before I can get to the prizes and send them to you.

As for the PUSH Goal Party, it's down for the count here at Inksplasher. However, I'm still doing Chalene Johnson's 30 Day Push Challenge and making progress. I still think it's awesome!

I hope that those of you who started Chalene Johnson's 30 Day Push Challenge are keeping it up. I know some of you have had some issues getting in. Chalene switched her program over to a new website and there were a few bugs. She will be repeating the challenge in April, so if you didn't get in this time, you can go sign up for next month.

P.S. I know that anyone under the age of—uhm—40 is not going to get the connection between the title of this post and the image to the left, so here:

HEY - I'm UNDER forty (for 6 more months anyway) and I knew the song...

Tristi Pinkston said...

I got the song reference too!

I am doing and enjoying the 30-day challenge, although I will say that the first day of the to-do list, I had a whole lot more energy. I'm sort of pulling myself though it now, but that's a physical energy thing, not because the challenge is boring.

I didn't do the push *hangs head in shame* but I should have. My house needs some serious organization. I need to send more queries and reconsider how I spend my writing time. I'll probably take some of the push tips and utilize them anyway, sans challenge. So there. Good luck with your computer.

Karlene,
I found your blog through LDSBlog Ring and I thought I'd stop by and say hello.

Sorry about the laptop. I finally broke down and orderd Mozy (an online back up service) because I kept having nightmares about my computer.

I'd love for you to stop by my blog too. Its Life of Lois

Best,
Lois

Oooo, a prize? I love prizes! Thanks for thinking of me for one.

And I totally got the image and title. I'm just barely over 40, too.

Oh okay ... 50. (Dang, more like 60!)

Try under 60. That song has to be from the 50s.
