Yes, I did it. Months and months of procrastination and three nights of sleepless nights later and it’s now finally over. I actually thought I was going to fail the thing, but I ended up not doing so bad (according to my counselor.) Here’s the proof.

Hacked!

Well I guess I’ve learned my lesson (I hope) regarding open source software and maintaining versions. Especially ones that are so popular! Last week we were hacked. Since then I’ve patched my PHPBB version to the latest “stable” version. Hopefully (knock on wood), we’ll be somewhat safe. We did lose about 3 weeks of posts however, so I’ll be trying to remember what it was I had written about.

Manimal, Half Man, Half…Whatever!

After years of slothfulness and utter disregard for our physical health, Nicole and I have decided to participate in the 2005 Body for Life Challenge. Because this is a competition in which we have a legitimate chance of taking home a prize, we have decided to get those around us involved by posting our progress on this site. This in hopes that your encouragement will keep our enthusiasm level high, while eliminating the need for cookies!

More to come soon…

Nicole and I would like to introduce you to the newest member of the Skowronek family, Brianne Nicole Skowronek. After a somewhat lengthy 6 hour delivery, she finally decided let nature take its course and be born, Wednesday, June 23 at 3:23 am. She weighed in at 7lbs 15oz and was
20.5 inches long/tall.

Both Nicole and Brianne are doing great! We are working on recovering from our lack of sleep and help Jaryn adjust to having a new little sister in the house. Other than that, things have been perfect!

Hopefully, we can find time to post some pictures.
