Still trying to catch up

Thursday, December 31, 2009

During December, it appeared that I was super busy. In fact, I got to the point that it became difficult for me to do much sparking, so I did the basics -- water, food, exercise, etc,but didn't really look at any email or anything. In fact, I forgot to spin the Spark wheel on 2 seperate days and there went my perfect streak of 260 some days!

Well I have been trying to catch up, but wiith between 50 and 100 new messages each day, it has been difficult. I have been on site for about 5 to 6 hours each evening, and I am still 3 days behind!

I decided to join the Spark Bookcamp and it got to the point, I see it as a new post from that team, I just delete without reading. I don't want to turn off the new posts because then I might miss the first challenge and the hints and tips email!

A lot of the email are replys to previous posts, so many of them I can delete, but then again, I don't know that until I read them

The moral of this story is that if you ever decide you are going to be off site for a few days, or weeks, turn OFF the new post notification emails. It will save a lot of time and frustration in the long run.......

I hope everyone has a great Happy and SAFE New Years Eve, and a fantasmigorical 2j010.

Plan to win in 2010!. If you don't plan to win, you are actually planning to fail. Something I need to work on!

    I have been just looking at the topic and then deleting. I am sorry for the new members I cannot welcome. But, I was taking too much time.

Glad to have you back.

Best wishes for the new year.

    December can certainly be a challenging month - but we've survived it and are ready for the challenge of getting on with our plans for 2010 and beyond... yippee!
