I was feeling good about my progress until I read about others already being done!
But I'm still OK, I think. I'm heading off for a week long solo camping trip early in the morning. I'll be taking along several craft project to work on by the lake but I won't have any Internet or phone access while there. That's actually one of the things I look forward to! It should be a nice relaxing farewell-to-summer interlude before the school year starts up.
Oh, and I believe the general practice seems to be to start at 13 and count down. But as long as you tell your partner where to start, I'm sure it will be fine.
