* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Damn! I missed another week... sigh.


Physical Fitness

1. Keep up the exercise = visiting the gym twice a week. - OK, with the dog dying and the usual two weeks cold/feeling crappy, I didn't go there. I will try to take up training again this week. Hope the dizzyness I have, will not act up.
2. Keep up the mainly vegetarian food/cooking style. - I will do something daring now and declare this goal as accomplished. We will have once in a while fish, or organic meat - but not often and I am not even missing it. Yay.
3. Keep up the discipline of no sweet soda/sweets in general. - See 1. this goal will be in work again this week, along with the physical exercise.

Household
4. Try to keep the chaos at bay. At least a bit? - Woot! Did a kinda spring cleaning and the house is awesome - now only to keep it that way...


Writer

5. Get the lazy butt up and edit the damned story! For the interim goal let's say: three chapters. - I am doing everything else, but working on the story - I am such a bad, bad writer....
6. Reading at least five books from the pile stacked up in the shelf. - will start the third book this weekend, just gotta decide which one I want to read... mmmh

Witchy
7. Participating in the Pagan Blog Project - keeping up nicely
8. Start the big Journal with at least three entries. - one entry done, two to go
9. Make some holy water. - oh, yes, I knew I forgot something... sheesh...


Goals: 9
1 Goal accomplished (yay, yay happy dance)
1 Goal accomplished 50% for the season
2 Goals being taken up again, since they have been on hiatus
3 WIP
2 not started
\'You had to repay, good or bad. There was more than one type of obligation.
That’s what people never really understood.….Things had to balance.
You couldn’t set out to be a good witch or a bad witch. It never worked out for long.
All you could try to be was a witch, as hard as you could.\'
Terry Pratchett \'Lords and Ladies\'

Confuzzled and proud. :p

Like I said: FAIL. Things have just been so shitty around here lately. It's such a fight just to get up and get things done around the house, never mind anything extra. Hell. READING is posing a problem and that's NEVER happened to me before. I'm sure it's a mix of things, but it's so irritating. I'm so sick of myself and my lack of energy. I'm so sick of lots of things. Well. Better luck next month. Er. This month.

Also as far as March goes, I'm going to have to change the things that require "purchasing" anything. Funds are beyond tight.
