I was sorry to hear about the fire yesterday but relieved to know it wasn't at Spark central.
What kinda of 'health' thoughts passed through your mind when you found out that the SparkPeople server was down?
I have to admit my curiosity was triggered by the responses on Facebook, such as "Oh, good! now I can eat what I want!" and "If I can't track, how will I know what I can eat?"
I'm hoping those comments were intended to be funny. It'd be scary to think they were serious....
I did come to realize, however, how helpful the Spark resources are and how much I'd miss them if they weren't available. I am still amazed that this awesome service and all the helpful tools - not to mention the awesome community of SparkFriends - are available to us without cost!
Anyway, yesterday was rather bitter sweet. Mostly sweet - in that I was able to get a lot done, especially going through the boxes of papers that I have to sort. It was very therapeutic, healing and eye opening for me.
The bitter was that one of the fish in our big aquarium died. We'd had her (?) for several years - a big fancy tailed Oranda that we named Lucy because of her big red head.
Yeah, she was just a fish . . . but a great source of entertainment.
She had a cavernous mouth that could easily swallow just about anything - including a Corey Catfish . . . cos we had to do surgery to remove the one we found with it's tail sticking out of her mouth one morning last year.
Hope you have a wonderful day! The weekend is almost here!!!
