    Default Drill partners

    DRILL - (verb) to work with a partner for 30-45 mins on a particular or groups of projects (can include exercise, writing thankyou notes, taxes, cleaning, crafts, doing something for yourself,etc) Thhen return to computer/IM and chit chat for about 15 mins *this is a reward and immediate acknowledgement of what was accomplished.

    DRILL PARTNER - (noun) a person who is your online IM partner/buddy, their job it to encourage, support and sometimes kick you in the pants to get going on projects that need to be done. This is a 'job' for both or more of you, each supports and encourages the other. You can also use the 15 mins for working out various issues that are bugging you about the house, jobs, family, decor etc LOL

    from "DRILL INSTRUCTOR"

    TIMER - your buddy and friend .. Dollar Tree has digital timers for a buck, very handy for keeping on track

    I did start a DRILL PARTNERS group over in the social group area .. It's public, so if you want/need someone to get you going to clean, organize, exercise or whatever come on over.

    JoAnn said to stick it over there so I did.

    So far its mostly us northern girls ME, OH and S DAKOTA (I think)

    Ria Thanks,
    I have a few mins. here to say Thank-You, I have found my Drill partners. From our conversation in another thread the other day. I believe only good things have come out of that thread. Which is a great start for me.

    well I know if its just up to 'me' I get sidetracked real easy, with a partner I tend to write what needs done, they 'know' what needs done and if I get off track I get the kick in the pants .. LOL ..

    Plus working in short spurts tends to make it move faster .. stuff gets done

    once I am back in this mode I can use the commercial time on TV and get an amazing amount of little stuff done.

    So far this morning I haven't got anything BIG done, but I have a bunch of little things started or finished ..

    I made my MENU PLANNER master in MS since my Word program is jamming up, so couldn't use the exsisting one ..Heck most of my part of the JAN MENU PLANNER is done, gotta get the guys to write in theirs (always takes the longest). When it's all done, I need to move all the recipes into files on my one group (gets them off my computer for more space - one of those twofers)

    Since word is acting up will redo the MASTER BILL PAYMENT CHART into MS and eventually just delete the Word, unless my gf can reload it.

    OT:
    Anyone use Open Office?

    Ria
    heading back to the table to clear it ..

    OT COMPUTER STUFF - OO etc
    Kim,
    what can you do with OO? I know Kim Komando has recommended it and another HSer does too. Dori also does a lot of PDFs think she uses something called cutepdf or something like that for them though

    I think before I toss anything else on my computer I have to get more stuff off it and into files online. Who knows that might be why I can't load up my word

    I am fairly computer illiterate, I have a friend who is comp tech and she usually deals with anything on here. But I know my machine is pretty close to maxed
