This too shall pass!

Wednesday, February 05, 2014

Yesterday was "one of those days". The point grinch continues his heartless rampage, giving me one or two sign on points, the same for bonus points, then team points are one or two. Deep breath. Beloved and I took Mum out to a lovely lunch, then to the theater to see Porgy and Bess. As we were sitting at the dining table overlooking the flowing river I noticed another sapphire had fallen out of my ring. This is the THIRD time I've had one of my beloved's great-great grandmother's stones fall out so now I have to get another stone! Today he is going to the jeweler to have the whole ring rebuilt.
I'm going to school to volunteer and remove myself from SELF to focus on helping others. Not that the grinch cares...sigh! emoticon

    The point grinch has been lurking around my wheels, too. He did get generous there st then end of January, but he's back at it again.

Thank you for sharing the lovely story of your day with mum and beloved. May your ring come back and never drop another sapphire.

    For those who have been on the site quite some time, you may not have many articles left to read and earn points for. You can go into your main account settings and reset all the articles and/or videos to unread so that you can earn those points again, and you will not lose the original points for them.

I have found I generally earn more points for the official SP teams (Spark Coach and SP Community) than I do teams that were started by members. Coincidence perhaps? Yesterday I got 50 for SP Community!

    It sounds like maybe the prongs on the ring are slowly wearing out and will need replaced to avoid losing more stones. Good thing you are getting it taken care of before losing them all!

    Oh, that Grinch has been on my back too! I've been getting 2-3 points almost every time for weeks. I know how heartbreaking it is to lose that emerald. And they aren't cheap to replace! After 32 years, I lost my wedding ring. It was devastating to me. (maybe it was a sign from God because the next year my husband left me) At least you didn't lose the whole ring. Glad you are taking it to the jeweler, the setting is probably weak from age. The lunch by the river and the theater sound marvelous! I love live theater! Hope you have a wonderful day today!

    Glad you are having the ring rebuilt. Don't like those low sign on points! Sounds like you had a lovely day, minus the ring stones. Blessings....
