This has been a really difficult week for me. On Tuesday, at baseball practice, my son broke his arm. Poor kid. He was so excited about this summer. He was on a county team that had scouted him and he had great potential to improve his already great skills. He was going to wrestling camp where he was going to get a little leg up when he tried out for the high school team. This was the summer of his dreams! Everything is over, done. He is devastated and my heart hurts for him.
Yesterday, at the orthopedics office the Dr. told us that it could have been so much worse. The crack in the bone hadn't separated and if he didn't hurt that arm again for a month, it would heal quickly. He said had it been just a little worse he would have needed surgery, screws in his arm and a long rehab. We really dodged a bullet.....or did we?
When I had a moment to just breathe and reflect on everything I realized that this happened on the anniversary of my mother's passing. It was two years ago that she died.
You may all think that I'm nuts but I truly believe she was watching out for him. She loved her family and her grandchildren were everything! Actually, about 6 months after her passing I was in the city (NYC) and I was just about to cross a street when I felt a weird tug at the back of my shirt and stepped back. There was no one behind me and at that moment there was a car accident right in front of me. Had I been walking there, I would have been killed. To this day I believe my mom pulled me back.
It's ok if you think I'm a little nuts. You won't be the only one but I do believe she watches over her family.
Now I have to figure out what I'm going to do with my one handed son this summer.
Like I said, it's been a tough week.

Ever have one of those mornings? I got up today and felt, well, thinner. I felt as though I had lost some weight. Yesterday, wearing my "fat" jeans that I wear to work, they felt looser. I know I have been eating right and keeping within my calorie range.
So, today before I got into the shower I thought I would take a look. What do you know??? I GAINED A POUND!!! Arghhhhh what's that about.
After some good hard thinking I did remember that the shrimp I had last night was salty. Can one retain an entire lb of water, I don't know. But, even if it is water retention, then so what? I still didn't lose anything.
I will not give up. I am staying the course. I will lose this weight....again. It can just be so frustrating sometimes.
I think that I will wait until I feel fat. That way maybe the scale will say I've lost some weight.

She said, "Come to the gym with me mom." I thought, "What a great idea. We can spend some quality time together and I get exercise to boot!"
She said, "Try the circuit training mom." She said, "It's easy mom" Well, ok, I haven't done this in years but why not? How hard can it be???
.....she LIED!!! I'm in so much pain!! Yeouchhhhhhh!!!
Ok, I'm really not in horrible pain but my muscles are really sore and I kind of think that's a good thing. Yesterday I did feel a kind of pull in my back but I iced it when I got home and I'm fine today.
Well, that was harder than I thought!!! Ok, yes, I'll do it again..and again...and again... hey I may even join once she goes back to school!
But, be wary when your child says, "It's easy". Look at them then look at you....see what I mean???
