Spark People, you made my morning!!!!

Wednesday, September 28, 2011

I get up early for school - 5:30 AM. It is almost always dark outside, even here at 18 degrees north of the equator. I hate getting up that early.

I stumble out to put water up to boil, then turn on the computer and the TV to check weather. While waiting for the tropical update, I visit SparkPeople and get my log in points. TEN today!!! Woooohoooooooo!!!!!! YAY!!!!!! My eyes open a little bit more, and I actually have a smile on my face as I thank the computer.

The weather report isn't bad (50% chance of rain, Tropical Depression Ophelia probably going north of us but more rain tomorrow or so) - I log in my morning exercise routine, read an article or two, and go to the bonus spinwheel.

This is where you Spark elves REALLY made the day - 1000 SparkGoodie points!!!!!!! WOWZA!!!!!!!! So I splurged on a tiara. Do I need one in real life? No. I'm not a tiara kind of woman. But I have delusions of glamour, so a tiara works for me.

Spark People, you made my morning shine as brightly as that diamond tiara, all twinkling and sparkling on my page!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

YAY!!!!!! I'm now awake, and I can face the drive to school, the projects to set up, the bouncy middle school kids, and most especially my class of behavior problem students.

Because I have a TIARA!!!!!!!

    LOL, thanks for the laugh :) I totally think you could rock a tiara! I have to say, though, this blog mostly reminded me of one of my favorite books by Kurt Vonegut, Slaughter House Nine! Love it ;)

    It's the little things, isn't it? Now, somehow those points can be converted into a real prize, but I have yet to figure it out. I saw that Daruma won something that she was unaware of (and I did send her a note), but how all that works is still a mystery to me.

Perhaps your virtual goodie could be traded in for a real tiara?

Figure out the SP puzzle in all this and let the rest of us know.

In the meantime, Happy New Year!

    Sooooooo cool: even if you're not a tiara person in real life, I can see it totally working for ya as a "virtual tiara". You sparkle plenty as far as I'm concerned!! emoticon

    A Tiara is perfect to wear tonight. I wish you and your husband and all your family a very happy New year and well over the fast.
