Update Results of Operation Latrant
Tuesday, August 14, 2012
First, I want to thank all of you who took the time to post to my DH’s page that I created in the hopes of Sparking him to join me here.
To be blunt, the result of “Operation Latrant” thus far are a big "zero." My DH enjoyed and appreciated your posts and I was politely thanked, however, he is not as enamored of the Spark Kingdom as I am.
In his defense, he IS a pretty busy guy.
No, please don't throw any virtual eggs and rotten tomatoes at my DH's page.
But, I had to try.
It is a shame though, because he is a pretty amazing guy with a lot to offer. In fact, one of his passions is planning for retirement. Really. I'm not joking. He can be a little obsessed with the topic and I was hoping he could start a Team to help others out since there are so many different Teams with such varied interests.
He is a doctor, but could easily be an economist based on the way the blah, blah, blahs to me about annuities, pension plans, insurance plans and economic indicators. He could also be a computer IT guy the way he blah, blah, blahs about technology. In fact, there are about dozen other careers he could have had, and been successful at.
I think intelligence is sexy, but he takes it too far sometimes.
Or... maybe he does not take it far enough since he can’t seem to see the benefits, the power and the beauty of the Spark Kingdom....
Edited note: He called me from work and asked for his log in and password. I'll have to see if he starts to Spark stalk me....
Edited note: Hey!! he posted a note to his page!:
This is the Actual Latrant! (Not Triangle-Woman, my DW!).
Thought I'd say hello and thanks for posting. I know my DW thinks I've abandoned the idea, but 60 hour work week, call above that and travel time 75 miles away makes it hard to fit in blogging/responding.
I appreciate all of my DW friends and your efforts to get me interested in the Spark World. I sit in front of computers all day reading MRI's, CT's, X-rays, Mammograms, Ultrasounds, etc and it is hard to find time to go to any site let alone SparkPeople.
My 23 years in the Army, exercise was part of the schedule/day or at least the top 3 on the list. Now, its about coverage and efficiency and, I hate to say it, revenue. There are always good and bad things with every endeavor, job or website. I don't know that I'll be here daily but at least weekly.
