Of things remembered

Tuesday, November 21, 2006

The past few days have been so emotional. My son's estate, was finally settled last week and it was something that I have felt hurt because of it. I mean I would rather have my son RILEY instead of money, and why oh why does the court make us feel that we have to prove we are his parents? That part of the court hearings hurt the most, but it's done now, and I know my RILEY is looking out for his family.
After hearing and seeing that bus accident on the news also brought those feelings back, of having to be told "I'm sorry your son didn't make it" GOD if your there I need your comfort more now, especially to get through this week.
******************
I went to my TOPS group meeting today and had a 1 pound loss, but it's been in a two week time as I had missed weighin last week. But I am satisfied with any loss right now.
My last day of school was yesterday and I feel so much of that weight of stress gone, and I am oh so grateful for it. I have so much that I want to do that I don't know where to start. I guess this was it, to finally update my SPARK journal.
Well I am off to do some house cleaning and a little ready before I have to shop.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING to my SPARK friends

REMEMBERING

Thursday, November 09, 2006

All this week many random memories of my son keep flooding my thoughts. It's a good thing but last night, the reality that he is not here hurt so bad that I cried all the way home from class. I miss my son, my RILEY.
I LOVE YOU ALWAYS, BABY BOI!

*************
For my weigh in on Tuesday at TOPS, I gained 3/4 of a pound but I kinda figured that since I was eating out most of last week while at the hospital. I am hoping to stay the same for next weeks weigh in as this week is pretty much the same with the eating and not having time to exercise. I am doing my best to make better choices but sometimes same ole gets old.
Anyway we will be out of town by tomorrow so will see how it goes.
You all have a Blessed weekend with your famlies

BEGININGS......Again :)

Monday, November 06, 2006

I am starting back to my routine of exercising as I had missed 6 days in a row and am feeling kinda swollen. I guess all that stress, anxiety, anticipation is gone now and I can begin again.
My emotions are so jumbled though, and I am doing my best to be happy, content and prideful. BUT my grief, my saddeness of not having my son RILEY here is great. It's enought that I am dreaming of him often and am always at points of needing to protect him. I am grateful for the dreams to see my son, those make me happy too.

I only have two weeks of school and I am doing my best to catch up, but I don't know if my teachers will cooperative. I am praying about this. As for my healthy eating, I know I need to be consistant in it and not eat what is most handy (takeout). I will try to make the best choices if it comes to that.
Again, I want to say thank you for your comments, and messeges, they are much appreciated.
