We have 99 members

Post by Blue Devil Knight on July 25th 2010, 10:35 am

One more and we have a century of members. Thanks guys for making it such a great forum. Certain of you have really gotten me to think, especially Bilbo who likes to argue as much as I do I think. Smile

I stopped doing the program personally after three months, but am thinking of starting up again just for fun. I have all 13 months now, so would read through the material really fast (like in two weeks) and then slowly. Ideally. Probably not in reality. But ideally that's what I'll do.

Really? Why did you stop after 3 months?

No I never really recovered. Also, other things are more important now like a new baby, among other things Smile

Ahhh... congratulations! My son is now 5 almost 6. Don't worry, you will be able to make a return to chess once things 'settle down' a little.

How old is your youngster now? Are you getting sleep?!

Is she your first?

Our son didn't let us sleep (for more than 2-3 hours) until he was 18 months old! Lil' bugger ^^

Well congratulations on your first! You'll get some decent sleep before you know it... and before you know it she'll be off to school. Enjoy every step along the way mate.

Hey BDK, I know... I am late! A huge CONGRATULATIONS goes out to you and your spouse! I tell you, kids are the craziest thing that has happened in my life. I am loving it! I was a little fried with no sleep for a month or three!

I wish it were only 3 months for me... we would have had another kid if it were only 3 months.
