a gloomy Saturday

Saturday, September 26, 2009

The plan of going to the craft show is history. It is being held outdoors and with the rain becoming thunderstorms later today, I am going to stay home nice and dry.

I continue to put all my knitting books on a resource file. Have promised several people I would post pictures of my collection when I am done. It will get done.

The boys have left. one is heading back to Durham to study for a law exam next week and the other is heading to Atlanta to finally see his girlfriend who was trapped at home last week due to the floods. She lives fairly close to six flags but luckily her house and car were not flooded since she lives on a hill.

Laundry is washing, dinner is cooking and when i get a chance to, I am slipping back into pj's.

    Sorry the craft show got rained out. I would have loved to have gone to something like that myself! Seems like there are always so many craft shows this time of year.

Glad to hear that your friend is okay and that her house was not flooded. She is one of the lucky ones.

Today I got had more blood drawn. Honestly two years ago this would have driven me crazy and to the point of actually getting physcially ill. But since the car accident and all these other problems with glands, i now go in willingly. I average every six weeks which is more blood than my diabetic husband has drawn each year. I now take more pills and natural exlirs than anyone I know (except for a friend who has had a kidney transplant).

Figured while at the doctor, get my flu shoot. That went really quickly except not one person there knew the diagnostic code for it so my insurance company would reimburse me. they actually had to call the accounting office and ask them. Now it is posted on the front check out desk


The rest of the day will be busy. Getting information onto my computer for a project, finding information about the stores in Williamsburg VA to send to the CEO's wife for the trip next year. Trust me I have to do as high end on the hotel as possible for her. She will only stay in a great suite or penthouse. Spa has to be rated and there has to be a lot to do. Looking into fishing charters for the guys so they don't have to play golf if they don't want to.

    I would love to have a day like that instead of all the heave lifting we have to do here and beleive me some of the sets are really heavy.
Looking as to when you posted your blog and I posted mine you must be about 20 hours behind us.
Also I,m not dumb but I have not been able to master what to do to answer a blog that has been posted on my web page, (what do I do or better still how do I go about this. emoticon emoticon

    Sounds like a full day! Are you always the one to make the trip arrangements? I think that would drive me crazy. Since it seems you have to impress the CEO's wife. Maybe she should be the one doing it.

Spark Points

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

I am curious about something. Are members so addicted to SP that they have no life and just sit here getting points all day.

On the average day with a log in spin of 1-5 points I usually get between 116 and 121 points. Very rarely does it go over that unless I am totally bored and add up enough messages to get the extra 10 points.

Honestly when you look at the boards, does anyone wonder how some are averaging 170 points a day? Do they just log in and answer 100's and 100's of messages on the boards... do they have someone logging in for them and making a game of increasing that person's points. What is it?

I have asked SP and then say the most points without doing all those 100
s of messages a person can usually get is 135.

SO I wonder, is this a game for some

    Actually, I've been wondering how YOU do it!

Since April, you have averaged 175.2 points per day (42,339 sparkpoints in 242 days).

How do you do it? You are at or near the top of the monthly sparkpoint leader boards every month.

    I have never known how people get all those points. I don't think I've ever had over 100 in a day.

    When you look at the person who is presently in the number 2 slot, he has over 4800 points which is 1600 more than the daily norm average of 130. Even last month after he had major surgery he still averaged out in the 180=200 point range which is shocking considering he was not doing that much exercise.

    I have never seen anyone with 170 points! I find that ready the articles and blogs helps to keep me on track, and I do try to get a fair amount of points to keep my team at # 1 in its category and I make sure to log in everyday but again I have never seen anyone with that many points. I am not on that much to notice I guess.

    Well I am usually at the computer quite often, and sparking away, Even on days when I get my 30 day 25 points in and my message board points in and all fitness I don't get that much, So I do not know how they are able to get that,

    For me I average 80 to 105.
But lets not be too critical. Think of all the people who are homebound because of their weight or health. They have no jobs, no life, and for many of them the only interaction they have outside the home is thru the internet.
For those of us that work, have friends, and are out in the world we have lots of things to occupy us outside of the world wide web.

Just a thought for the other side.

    Wow, just average 40 a day!! Work fulltime so do not have all that much time, maybe some people do!! You must be doing "alot" to rake in those points though!!

    I wonder that also. I do not log in near that many points a day. I am lucky if I break 80, but then again, if I exercised, I could add more.

    I wonder too. But hey, when I look at the Sparkpoints leader board, you are always near the top, lol.

Well this morning I have done all those errands I needed to including two doctors visits. I still have lots to do but all of a sudden no desire to do it.

So tomorrow I will be once again dealing with all the things I did not to do tomorrow
