Ecto Problems

UGH! Ecto is no longer working on my computer; the color wheel on my Mac just keeps spinning. I have avoided blogging on WordPress because is not as easy, which is why I haven’t posted in over a week.

I e-mailed Ecto asking for my login information so I can uninstall/reinstall Ecto, but they haven’t gotten back to me, so I’m stuck using WordPress if I want to post. Gosh, I nearly forgot how to use WordPress.

A quick update on this past week. . . . .

It was a very stressful week for me last week. It was only a 4-day week, but man, did it go by slowly! And, the kids were really off too. They were bouncing off the walls and more emotional (read: crying, whining, and complaining), which does not make for a happy teacher. I just hope this week is better!

Since I knew Ecto wasn’t working, I had very little motivation to take pictures. I did manage to take one picture though:

This is Angela’s Butternut Squash Mac ‘n’ Cheeze, and it was good! Craig especially liked it!

It was supposed to be vegan, but I didn’t have vegan butter or milk on hand, so I used regular milk and butter.


Last week’s workouts:

Monday – 5 miles (speed workout: 2 x 800 meters + 4 x 400 meters)

Tuesday – 3 mile run + 80 minutes of yoga

Wednesday – weight lifting + 5 mile run (2 mile timed run—my time: 13:09)

Thursday – off

Friday – 5 miles + weight lifting

Saturday – 9 mile run

Sunday – 3 mile run + weight lifting

Total: 30 miles


I’m really hoping to get Ecto back up and running soon. Anyone have any tips?

  1. For some reason, your posts haven’t been showing up in my reader! I was thinking about you yesterday and wondering if you just haven’t been posting lately, guess I just missed them!
    I don’t know what Ecto is, but I guess I should find out! I am a Mac user and just use WordPress for posts.. but it takes FOREVER.
    I love Angela’s recipes! I’ll have to check that one out!

    • Aw, that’s a bummer.

      Oh my goodness, you NEED to use Ecto. . .it is so much better and faster! I went to upload ONE photo to WordPress and it took forever! Ecto is definitely worth the cost! I’ve been using it since May and haven’t had any problems until now. I knew I would have problems eventually because of what I’d heard from other bloggers. If I can just get the problem solved, I’ll be back in business. :/

  2. Sorry for the issues with Ecto don’t know much about computers. I hope this week is going better for you.


  3. Several posts ago you mentioned that you work on an Army post and there have been recent deployments. Please remember how these changes at home may affect kids’ behavior at school. While I am not a teacher and I imagine working with kids is difficult, I have been especially turned off by your unkind comments about them. Kids need support, especially those in military families.

    • I have no doubt their emotions are running high because of the deployment. I try to keep that in mind while teaching, but sometimes I just get overwhelmed.

  4. I’m having trouble with Ecto also. Every time I try to “publish” it just publishes a blank page without saving content. I finally got the hint and just started copying post before publishing, losing an entire post is no fun. Still don’t know what the problem is.
