Boot Camp Update

Well not much has changed on my stats, but my endurance is better! I can actually make it all the way through without dying, and the next day I can still go up and down the stairs. I'm thinking that I'm going to have to step it up if I'm going to lose weight more effectively. So far Boot Camp is MWF. I think I need to do somthing T Th, so I'm going to check and see what other classes they have those days I can go to. Jessica is in Preschool those days from 9:30-11:30 so I have some time to myself. And knowing me I had better goto the gym instead of trying to do it at home. We ALL know that I will find other things to do at home! Like... oh cleaning the house (why would I want to do that?!) He he he!

So our computer has been acting very wonky lately. I've had to restore from our back up 3 times. Each time it locked up I'd get the same error message when scanning the disk of, "Invalid Node Structure". After some digging I found that this means the file structure is damaged, and if it keeps happening is a sign of a failing hard drive. So I broke down on Friday and bought a new internal hard drive. Of course our iMac doesn't have what's commonly considered as a "user serviceable" hard drive. But that didn't stop me. It was a little more involved than expected (see photo), but it's all back together and seems to be working better. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for the next few days. Whew!
