Folding, spindeling, and mutilating lauguage for fun since Aug, 2004

I've been developing detailed descriptions of how to do the Kung fu techniques that I teach my students.  I write them down into study guides to help their parents double-check and be sure that they are doing it right.

I created two study guides this weekend while I was up visiting my folks, working in the car to use my time wisely.

Then I got home and Rocky found that the server had crashed.  So he (being the efficient, hard-working guy that he is) restored from the last back-up.

And when I connected my computer to the network it auto-synced (Rocky is efficient and hard-working, did I mention that?  And thoughtfully set my computer up to auto-sync everytime I connect and disconnect to the network.  It has saved me numerous days worth of work over the years).

Naturally, when my computer synced THIS found that the two study guides I created over the weekend had been "deleted" from the "synced" that action on my computer.


I would like to say, for the record, however, that I am NOT complaining about having a competent, hard-working, thoughtful computer genius who thinks ahead and takes great pains to set things up so that I can have all of my work backed up and updated continuously without having to lift an extra finger to do so.

That would be dumb.  All of these things have added up to saving me many times more work than the few pages I lost.

Mostly, I'm grumpy because my dishwasher is broken, my car has been in the shop three times in the last week (to the tun of a couple of grand), my dog is obsessed with eating my headscarves, and now my computer ate my homework!

Oh, and I got a nose-bleed at kung Fu tonight.

I've been in major grump mode myself with at least 15 more days before getting any relief from it. Maybe I could convince Rocky to email me one of his famous Colorado Bulldogs.

Hugs to you. Hope we're both happier campers soon.

Karen and Kristi,

Thanks guys! A trip to the gym has renewed my cheery outlook on life and swept away the cobwebs. :-)

I'm working on increasing the amount of distance I can go at a higher speed. I can go forever (like hours and hours)at 6 or 6.5 MPH. But today I only went 1/2 mile at 7.1 MPH.

It's amazing how going just a little bit faster poops you out fast! 'course, I will be able to do more tomorrow, when I have not been lifting. :-)

A couple years ago, I did three miles in 24 minutes, and I was really happy about that. I'd like to be able to exceed that once again someday.

Ahhhh... endorphins are wonderful things. :-) Glad you're cheered up!
