oh I feel the excitement mounting as the reader waits to see what new woodworking challenge I have taken on.

Surprise!!! It’s not a woodworking challenge but an LJ challenge. I’ve been busy with clients all week and have only checked out a few posts here and there. The other day I looked at my backlog and, what to my surprise, but I had 19 pages of “Pulse” activity.

When I saw the “19” I went into a panic. What to do? What to do? Do I disregard the conversations and perhaps miss some brilliant piece of information or jovial teasing? That would just be wrong!! I had to scan them, at the very least.

And so, commenting on many of the new projects/blogs, I skimmed through conversations, absorbing the information and commenting now and again. After quite a while of looking at the screen, I felt like I had accomplished alot but then there was an entire new page of new posts and the total pages was still at 16. Gosh…

but I stuck with it, and checked a few posts every once in a while until all of a sudden the list was only a few long – and then it was empty. I had done it. I couldn’t believe it. PHEW.

And then we did yard work today only to find that I have 2 pages of PULSE activity once again. I’ll never be able to keep up.. my head is spinning!!! :)

Trying to keep up with all the new entries is like a dog chasing it tail. You never catch up. Congratulations of the temporary success.

Good work Debbie. You will make it.

I finished reading all posts about 30 days ago and have kept up to date since then. : ^ )

I’m really waiting for the favorites feature to come out. Being able to identify posts for future reference will be great.

favourites—- I think that is supposed to happen today!! :)

“temporary” success … kinda like that moment when I posted my challenge table. “way to go… NOW what are you going to make”... a fleeting moment and then time to move on

“You go girl!” and “Get ‘er done!” come to mind.

I enjoy all you posting Debbie, and your enterview on the podcast.

thanks P.J. ... with words like that, it makes me want to “live” on here and forget about housework and paid work, and enjoying the outdoors, and spending time with my family, and… lol all those other things in life.
