Get Started Bento Challenge

Spreadsheet Version of Maki's Weekly Bento Planner

(From the Just Bento Forum:)

Hi Hi Everybody,

Thought I’d share the little spreadsheet version I made of Maki’s Weekly Bento Planner (her original here). (Shared with her permission of course.)

Being the geek that I am and the fact that I don’t like scanning or looking at my handwriting, I wanted an editable version. I also wanted to be able to save it in a format that we could share as we do the planning assignment for the Going Deeper challenge. continue reading...

Why Maki is so scatterbrained right now

Not that I'm usually that together but... well, as some of you may know, we've had the house on the market for a while now. Not the best time for it for sure...the bad economy is really worldwide, and affecting Switzerland too. Anyway, just a week ago we got the first worthwhile offer for the place...and we've accepted it in principle. The price is less than we wanted but least we are not making a loss. So, the upshot is that we are now obligated to move out of this house by the end of February, and find another place to live temporarily while we look for a new place to buy. continue reading...

How the Get Started Bento Challenge will work

(From the new Just Bento forum)

Here are the details of the Get Started Bento Challenge. Please note: I got the start date wrong for the first week because I don’t know how to read a calendar properly! I really meant for it to start on Monday, January 12th. Because of my mistake though, we’ll say we’ll start the first week on the 12th or the 13th, then re-adjust so that the next week starts properly on a Monday. continue reading...
