* "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.

Life's To-Do List 2012 Season 3
« on: June 18, 2012, 08:00:54 pm »
Time for a new installment of the To-Do List thread.

If you've done this before, you know what to do next. The season for this thread will run from June 20th until September 21st. As always, lists may be posted prior to the start of the season, but updates should not begin until the first day of the season.

If you're new to these threads, here's how to join the fun:
  • Post your list of goals to be accomplished during the season. These can be goals of any sort- large or small. There's no minimum or maximum number of goals required. These can be subdivided any way you like - dividing by topic and month are both popular methods.
  • When posting, please either number your list or post a running total of the number of goals made and completed. This makes tracking group stats much easier.
  • Let everyone know how things are coming along by periodically posting updates and progress reports on this thread. Most participants typically update on a weekly basis... or as they remember! I'll try to give stats updates for the group every week or two (number of participants, total number of goals completed, etc).
  • The fun ends on the last day of the season. I'll give everyone a couple of days to do their final updates and then post one last set of stats for the group.
  • Toward the end of the season, look for the link to the coming season's thread.

Challenge accepted!
It's time to stop feeling sorry for myself and get the f*** going. *nod-nod*

Spiritual

1. Not only sticking to the daily water offering to the Ancestors, but adding the habit of doing the Ha-prayer with it.
2. Stop forgetting the offerings for Mercury! *gargl*
3. Resume the Ritual Meal - at least on full and black moons - so twice a month.

So three things that should become habits by end of the season.

Job

4. Stop worrying.

Health
 
5. Remember the gym you signed up at? Move your lazy butt there, damn it!

Writing

6. Do it. That's all. Stop worrying about the network part, the blog part - focus on the WIP!

Makes it:

6 goals
\'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

My updates:
  • Write and/or working on writing projects (e.g. editing, character sketches) at least five hours per week. - Accomplished for this week.
  • Jump through all necessary hoops to renew license and registration. - No progress yet.
  • Keep up with weekly Pagan Blog Project posts. - So far so good.  This week's post is Mistakes, Monsters, & Mayhem, Oh My!.
  • Go outside and play while on my stay-cation. - I'm still impatiently waiting for this to happen.  Soon though, very soon.
  • Do something fun to celebrate turning 40. - No idea...
  • Hit monthly Wellness Incentive goals. - June was an incredible success! New month starts today, back to square one!
  • Brew up my annual batch of personal incense. - Done!  Yay progress!
And furthermore... It looks like a household move will be happening sooner rather than later, so lots more to do.  I could have probably listed this as "move", but there are so many fiddly bits to deal with that it's easier on my brain to break it down into lots of little steps.
  • Find new place to live. - This is already a WIP. With any luck, we'll have something secured in a few days.
  • Create a "Keep Calm and Carry On" box of essentials (see my post here for an explanation).
  • Once found, take care of all necessary paperwork.
  • Every day, tackle small area of the current house - sort, purge, pack anything that's not essential, move essentials to central places to make them easier to find. - Already a WIP.
  • Make arrangements for the actual move itself (hire movers, bribe friends, guilt family into helping, etc.).
  • Sell or donate anything that's not being moved.
  • Pick up more moving boxes.
  • Do move-in prep to new place (clean, paint, cleanse/smudge/bless, set up wards, etc).
  • Actually move everything.
  • Do move-out chores as needed at old place (clean, patch nail holes, touch up paint, take down wards, etc).
  • Unpack and get everything put away at new place.
  • Once unpacked, recycle empty boxes.

WIP: 5

Oh boy, already update time

Spiritual

1. Not only sticking to the daily water offering to the Ancestors, but adding the habit of doing the Ha-prayer with it. - the water offering I missed only twice since starting the thing, the Ha-Prayer kinda doesn't work for me... I'll give it another try, but might cancel that part
2. Stop forgetting the offerings for Mercury! *gargl* - *sigh* forgot twice already, again... damn. This has something to do with the fact that the shrine is not in a room I go in everyday... might need to change that.
3. Resume the Ritual Meal - at least on full and black moons - so twice a month. - full moon coming up, last black moon's meal was performed

So three things that should become habits by end of the season.

Job

4. Stop worrying. - so far, so good

Health
 
5. Remember the gym you signed up at? Move your lazy butt there, damn it! - haven't been there... I am horrible with such things

Writing

6. Do it. That's all. Stop worrying about the network part, the blog part - focus on the WIP! - I am writing! Yay! And for now shorts and flash fic, but I am positive I will work on the story again soon
Makes it:

6 goals
4 going well
2 not so good

Sunday again?  My, how time flies...
  • Write and/or working on writing projects (e.g. editing, character sketches) at least five hours per week. - I'll be working on this later today.
  • Jump through all necessary hoops to renew license and registration. - Nearly done. The license has been renewed and the required inspection for registration renewal has been passed! I just need to drop the registration renewal form in the mail.
  • Keep up with weekly Pagan Blog Project posts. - I posted this week, but it's so short that it barely counts: Nurturing Ourselves.
  • Go outside and play while on my stay-cation. - Technically, this is still a WIP, but spent three hours yesterday hiking at one of my favorite waterfalls.
  • Do something fun to celebrate turning 40. - Still no idea...
  • Hit monthly Wellness Incentive goals. - WIP!
  • Brew up my annual batch of personal incense. - Done!
  • Find new place to live. - Done. although move-in isn't until August.
  • Create a "Keep Calm and Carry On" box of essentials. - WIP. I've started this thing three times and someone else in the household keeps commandeering my box for other uses.
  • Once a place is found, take care of all necessary paperwork.
  • Every day, tackle small area of the current house - sort, purge, pack anything that's not essential, move essentials to central places to make them easier to find. - Definitely a WIP.
  • Make arrangements for the actual move itself. - WIP.  
  • Sell or donate anything that's not being moved. - WIP. Boxes already started for Goodwill, friends, etc.
  • Pick up more moving boxes.
  • Do move-in prep to new place (clean, paint, cleanse/smudge/bless, set up wards, etc).
  • Actually move everything.
  • Do move-out chores as needed at old place (clean, patch nail holes, touch up paint, take down wards, etc).
  • Unpack and get everything put away at new place.
  • Once unpacked, recycle empty boxes.
