  • Day 29

    9/21/2014 2:04:36 PM, by JUSTCONFUZZLED

    Something amusing about me: I sleep eat. I have for a long time. It's embarrassing, and I generally hesitate talking about it because people think I'm nuts. I learned about the fact that I do this in two ways... 1. Dad is up weird hours, so sometimes he'll see me. I'll get ... Read more

    9/21/2014 7:39:30 AM, by OHANAMAMA

    These are the cardinals I watched build a nest outside my window at work earlier this summer. It appears there was only one chick hatched. I don't know how many eggs she laid... perhaps it was just the one... anyhow, this is a video I took of the parents feeding it. I apologize for the shakiness of ... Read more

    9/20/2014 9:05:21 PM, by CATTUTT

    So, I bought new shoes a couple weeks ago, and it seems I've made a mistake. The mistake of buying cheap shoes. They're not supportive enough, especially considering I'm already prone to plantar fasciitis. I was looking for a new pair online tonight and chatting with my mom at the same time. She... Read more

    9/20/2014 8:34:18 PM, by STEVEN2GO2

    Last night after 3 hours of helping my friends move to their new home, I was watching the Pirates. At the top of the 7th inning the Pirates were behind 0 - 2. I was having a hard time concentrating on the game and had about given up. So I decided much needed sleep was a higher priority. I slept for ... Read more

She wanted to bring me something, and I tried to convince her she didn't have to, but she was persistent and I finally asked her to bring salad. Evidently she'd tried to talk to hubb... Read more

  • Day 66 of 135 - record # of steps

    9/19/2014 9:35:57 PM, by FORZACHANDMATT

    This will be very quick tonight - had a record # of steps today - 13,486 - almost 2 miles of that was running today. I used to wonder how could people possible get 5,000 steps, never mind 10,000 steps. I don't usually get 10,000 steps per day - usually it's closer to between 5000 and 7500. So it was... Read more

    I loved my time on Spark! I did great, loved the friends I made, and learned how to start new good habits. But of course life gets in the way. Losing my job was really hard and made it hard for me to access Spark daily. Which of course made me lose interest. I did stay within the limits I le... Read more
