When Spark Streaks Do More Harm Than Good

Tuesday, October 29, 2019

Tuesday’s Terror: Goal-setting is powerful because it provides focus. It shapes our dreams. It gives us the ability to hone in on the exact actions we need to perform to achieve everything we desire in life.~Jim Rohn

Happy National Hermit Day, National Frankenstein Day, National Cat Day, National Internet Day, National Oatmeal Day, World Psoriasis Day & Rabi'-al-Awwal!

What do you call the secretary to a monster?~His Ghoul Friday!*How do ghosts buy stocks?~On pure spookulation!*Where do ghosts buy their sheets?~At white sales!*What was the turning point in young Dr. Frankenstein’s life?~When his mother told him to go out & make some friends!*What is a witch’s favorite subject?~Spelling!*who did Frankenstein take to the prom?~His Ghoulfriend!*Why did the skeleton cross the road?~To go to the body shop!*What animal will you never find in a haunted House?~A Scaredy Cat!

On Halloween, witches come true;-Wild ghosts escape from dreams…~Nicholas Gordon ~~Never let your kids buy an off-the-shelf Halloween costume. Forbid it, no matter how close you may be to the witching hour. Instead, help them make their own. Encourage them to use their imaginations and their ingenuity. Show them that what can be created is often better than what can be bought. And besides, don’t the darkest, most frightening things live inside us anyway?~Joe Kita~~I don’t know exactly what the zombie apocalypse will look like, but I have a strong feeling that it will resemble Walmart on a Friday night.~Keith Wynn~~There are few things in life more heartwarming than to be welcomed by a cat.~Tay Hohoff~~If there is one spot of sun spilling onto the floor, a cat will find it and soak it up.~J.A. McIntosh~~Most of us rather like our cats to have a streak of wickedness. I should not feel quite easy in the company of any cat that walked about the house with a saintly expression.~Beverly Nichols~~Hermits have no peer pressure.~Steven Wright~~Hateful day when I received life! I exclaimed in agony. Accursed creator! Why did you form a monster so hideous that even you turned from me in disgust? God, in pity, made man beautiful and alluring, after his own image; but my form is a filthy type of yours, more horrid even from the very resemlance. Satan had his companions, fellow-devils, to admire and encourage him; but I am solitary and abhorred.(Frankenstein)~Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley~~A cat, after being scolded, goes about its business. A dog slinks off into a corner and pretends to be doing a serious self-reappraisal.~Robert Brault

Fun Fact: The song "Walk on By" was originally recorded by Dionne Warwick in 1964 and has gone on to be covered by singers and bands as diverse as Isaac Hayes, the Stranglers, Cyndi Lauper, and Seal.

When? When a person is highly competitive and has a history of disordered eating & exercise habits! I was doing all I could to keep up with my 10K steps a day, even while sick! Even while told by doctors not to exercise! Because I am one of those people. I have to go in and stop some and even most of my streaks here on SP because they can hurt me more than help!

don't get me wrong, I think the streaks and keeping track are good things that can help peple alot, but I am not one of those people. I will try to stick to a streak and feel guilty when I can't. Then i get into that downward spiral of negative self-talk! So, I have to give up certain streaks!

Today I've actually felt worse than I have in a few days. Probably because I decided to work out yesterday and today. As most of you know, I work out at Curves and I've only done 1 circuit instead of 2 and have not pushed myself, but I guess that was still too much!

but, it is all just so odd. This pneumonia thing. I'm still not coughing, but I feel it may be coming. I tested negative for flu and strep throat and the chest Xray shows a spot of pneumonia, but no coughing, at least not yet! I feel like I need to cough to get rid of the gunk in my lung, but it ain't happening.

I go back for another check up tomorrow, so guess I'll ask about it. Last time she said to expect it to come once it broke up. She suggested maybe I was dehydrated from the fever and that is why it hasn't broken up, but I find dehydration hard to believe because the only streak I have been faithful to is drinking at least 64 oz. of water each day and most of the time more than that! I dunno!

I know Sassy is liking me being sick. I lay down with her most every day for a nap or just a lay down read.

Well, Happy Spooky Tuesday! Hope you have a refreshing evening/night!

    Yup, "streaks" are a means to an end: but NOT an end in themselves. There's always an appropriate time to take a break . . .
