Dedication or Obsession?

Monday, November 15, 2010

I went out of town this weekend for my nephew's baby dedication. After spending a busy day with family on Saturday, my son and I checked into our hotel. The first thing I did was pull out my laptop and try to connect to the wi-fi and do my "sparking". internet service. I called the internet provider and was told that it was just our room and a couple of rooms around us that was having an issue and it would not be fixed until the next afternoon. I went to the front desk and asked the lady if she had another room that we could move to that had internet service. She told us that she did but it was on the second floor. I told her that would be fine. Well before I moved us upstairs, I went up to be sure the internet was working in that room. It was. I went back down and got Sebastian and all our stuff. We moved to the new room and began to settle in when we realized the air didn't work!! I called the front desk and the lady said she thought she could fix it. I told her we would just move back to our original room and I would use the internet in the lobby. We moved back downstairs. As we were getting settled back into that room, I realized I had left my church clothes hanging in the closet of the second room. I went back to the front desk and asked for a key to go back to that room and get my clothes. I got all that done and settled in to find an internet connection. (I wish I could say I took the stairs during all this, but I didn't! I used the elevator. I did get lots of extra steps though!!) I walked outside our room and discovered that the internet worked one door down from us. I just sat down right there in the hall and did my "sparking" for the day. If my husband had been with us, he would have said I was obsessed!!!

    I have an SP app on my iphone. One of the first things I do every morning is log in! I call it dedicated and motivating.

    Good job!

    Actually when we went on vacation I mentally prepared myself to hand journal my exercise & other details. Then my boys brought their laptops & offered mom computer time to do her "sparking". It was kind & thoughtful of them and I was able to keep up with my "journey".

    Good luck on your way... emoticon

    I say dedicated! You know you need those tools to keep you on track.

    Have you thought about using the app they have for cell phones. As long as you have internet connection you can Spark on the go. I use it all the time on my phone and it's been a lifesaver for me
