Looking forward to tonight!

Sunday, March 13, 2011

I'm having a very nice day. Although I definitely binged this morning. A friend came over this morning with bagels and after church Joe brought the boys to the batting cages and I stayed home. I couldn't wait until they walked out the door so I could binge on those yummy bagels. I know it was wrong but today I'm not obsessing about it. My parents came home from Florida last nigh and I know we will be having the conversation with them and Adam this week. I'm ready but stressed about it. I also am getting guilt from my mom about everything since she got off the plane. Other issues to discuss with my therapist on Tuesday. The upside of the day is I went to the rehersal of my neices confirmation for nexy Friday. I am her sponsor and am honored to be asked. :). We are going to see The Lion King tonight and can't wait to have a nice relaxing evening with my family. I hope everyone is having a relaxing and wonderful Sunday.

I was in a strange place yesturday....

Saturday, March 12, 2011

I was happy to be with my husband yesturday and we had a nice time shopping for my neices conformation gift. I am her sponsor and I bought her a beautiful cross for her necklace. We went to Cheesecake Factory and had a healthy lunch. As the day went on I knew we had made tentative plans with Joe's sister and her family. I don't know why but just couldn't get out of my funk that I didn't want to go there. So we went and I just felt off. I could tell they felt it too. It took a little while but I got out of my funk enough to be entertaining and witty emoticon but I just wan't myself. I will be talking to my therapist about it on Tuesday. I can't wait to see her. I feel so much has gone on in the past two weeks I'll need half a day to get through it all. So I'm headed to my dance class and know I will feel much better after that. I hope all my Spark friends are having a healthy weekend and enjoying friends and family!

    I think everyone gets that way from time to time. Last week I was a walking doom and gloom slug for 2 days but by Friday afternoon I came out of it and felt fine again.

I know people that seem happy go lucky 24/7... I don't think they are being truthful. I think EVERYONE has highs and lows in their life. We should embrase the lows so we can enjoy the highs all the more.

Thank you for your wonderful comments on my blog today! I really appriciate your perspective!

    Sometimes I prefer to be alone, too.

    Sometimes, people are just not in the mood to be around others. I have that feeling all of the time.

You really should make sure to talk to your therapist and get this out of your system.

Take care.

    You've been going through a lot lately and with all the energy shifting with the disaster in Japan, many people were feeling 'off' yesterday. Good day to you and have a great weekend!

    I'm gald you at least enjoyed a part of your day The most important part of the day.
I have days like that too. Just don't feel like being around other people other than my man/family. So it's not necessarily a strange place. It could simly have been that you were wanting and needing your space from anything outside home and family. So take heart.

Looking forward to a nice day with hubby

Friday, March 11, 2011

Joe has Fridays off from work so we have the whole day just the two of us until the boys come home from school. He works Saturdays which stinks but I think we are lucky to have this day every week to just have us. We get to talk about everything that has happened during the week without distractions from kids or most people in our lives who are working. Adam seems soooooo much better. He feels so much more at ease and like he is able to be himself. Its amazing. I'm so relieved about that. We will be talking to the grandparents this week coming up and I feel totally ready for it. Adam wants to be with us and at first I was concerned but talked to Mike about it and feel much better about that as well. Adam has told another friend at school and she is so psyched to have a gay friend emoticon Adam said she is so funny. She is asking alot of questions that make him laugh. So Spark friends you may be right! emoticon Thank you again for everything! Things have felt a little normal here and that is nice. Have a great weekend!

    I have to tell you this...My son came back from his ski trip with all those in his grade. While there, there was a boy that said to the ALL the others that he was gay. He said that he felt or thought like a girl, but in a man's body.

My son said that nobody said anything nasty to him and that it was no big deal. My son was accepting to that. I asked him if he was bothered and he just shrugged and said, "No big deal. So what. There's lots of gay people around."

Times sure have changed since I went I to school! emoticon
(By the way, my son is 15.)

Hope that helps you!

    Thanks so much HIPPIECHIC! I knew the day I found out that Adam was gay that I would do everything in my power to make everything ok for him through this process. I knew I would have alot to work through but Adam was my priority. I've heard of so many teenagers who've taken drugs, abused alcohol, cut themselves or worse because they weren't heard or understood by their parents and I vowed that day that this would not happen to my baby :). Thanks for everything and your words of encouragement cannot be needed or loved more. Have a great weekend!

    Yay! I hope you have a wonderful day with hubby and I wish you a peaceful meeting with the grandparents! It is so good that Adam is feeling good about coming out, it must be such a relief to him. And... you guys are being so supportive and I just think it's great. If more parents were like you, our young gay people would be so much more emotionally healthy, I'm sure.

Have a super day, my friend! emoticon

No Zumba today....

Wednesday, March 09, 2011

There isn't one scheduled today so just need to get errands done. emoticon I have been really lax on all my chores and boy if anyone walked in here they wouldn't believe I lived here. The boys have been happy because I haven't been on them about there chores either. My husband is such a saint about these things. He could care less if there are dirty dishes wrapped around the whole kitchen. Sometimes its like I have to will myself to do the things I usually would just find myself doing. I know this is a process but its strange the way I am some days. I'm trying to be good to myself like many of my Spark friends have been telling me but sometimes I'm like what the BLEEP is wrong with me. I need to get over myself. So I will get up and do the dishes and fold some laundry and.... Thanks for being here emoticon

    Take the depression quiz. Maybe there is an answer there for you. I mean, you have had lots to cope with and such. So much to do and very repetitive stuff and no will or not caring about it?

Take care my friend.

Getting some great dancing in!

Tuesday, March 08, 2011

I have really been making my workouts happen lately. I am so happy I have. I'm amazed at how much better I feel when I get to shake my groove thing emoticon. Something about dancing that helps me let it all go for an hour. I leave with a fresh perspective every time. Some days the worries of my life seep back into my brain earlier than others. The past few workouts have left me feeling great for long time. So I'm heading out to boogie again this morning and look forward to seeing my dancing queens emoticonThese are very positive women who make me feel empowered. I'm almost as thankful to them as I am for all my Spark friends who keep me sane (sort of sane :)). Have a great day!
