wish her well.....

Thursday, January 13, 2011

I have a nine year old granddaughter who has been competing in gymnastics for 6 years. Tomorrow we head out for a regional tournament competition and I am hoping that she will do well.

She practices four times a week and has been in many competitions over the years. She really likes the competitions and I know that she is out there to have as much fun as she possibly can.

If only her "competitive to a fault" granddad could get over needing her to "absolutely win every competition" they would both have a lot of fun. I just don't let her know that she could/should win, win, win, at every meet. No really I am thankful that she is in it for the fun and the competitive nature has not ruined that for her.

Wish her well......

back to normal.....

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

Well we have finally dug out of the snow here in north Georgia. The main roads are clear but the side streets are still a little slick. This kind of weather does not lend itself to an "increase in sales" and that could be bad for those of us in commission based incomes.

The beauty of the snow fall and the covering it brought to our world is nice to see on occasion but we in the south are spoiled. We don't have this sort of weather that lingers for days and days.

So we will endure and the warmth will return soon. When it does, we will thaw and things will be back to normal.....


where did my huddle go?.....

Tuesday, January 11, 2011

For the past two days I have been to the "spark team pages" and have found that the team blogs and the huddle page is missing. I have always enjoyed these two features of sparkpeople. This is one of the tools that has helped me to keep up with the progress of other "sparkies" and to share some encouragement.

And I am missing out on the opportunity to get 5 guaranteed spark points every day.

Has anyone else found this to be the case on their team pages or am I in a boat alone? Where did my huddle go?.......

    That's what I thought too! I always huddle in the morning before going to work. I'm always in a hurry when I do this. Having to look for it made me slow down. I think we will like it once we get use to it.

Have an awesome day!

    You are on the right track. Go to your individual team page. Look to the column to the right of the team page. Look at the box heading of "Team Stream". There's a rolling log of blogs and Huddle posts. On the bottom of the box there's a "View Huddle Wall/Huddle Now" with a red arrow pointing to the right. Just click on it to post Huddle with your team.

I hope this helps!

will the winter storm make it.....

Sunday, January 09, 2011

It is almost 11:00 p.m. and the forcast is calling for snow and wintery mix. At this time we don't have anything and I am sort of hoping that we don't get any of the ice part.

I am scheduled to lead a training conference for a group of newly hired employees throughout the district. If the weather hits us the class will be postponed and I will have to reshuffle the schedule all over again.

So my question for the night is, "will the winter storm make it....."

  It is 12:40 in Lincoln county no snow yet. I believe they said it might hit about 6 am. Not looking forward to it this time I have no groceries was putting it off until Monday morning. I live off the main road so when it does come it is hard to get out to the main road. I pray you get to keep your schedule.

back on track....

Wednesday, January 05, 2011

We are 5 days into the new year and I have registered over 5oo spark points already. When I began Sparkpeople it was my goal to get 100 points per day. I really have missed this goal for the past couple of months.

It is good to be back on track.....
