Happy Friday!

Friday, April 08, 2011

So yesturday Adam came home from school and told me that many people asked him if he was gay. One friend said he was fine with it but its against his religon. He actually quoted verses on it. I told Adam I had many verses from a good (Spark) friend that could help him with this. He said he didn't want to go there with him it would just encourage a bad discussion. I think it was about his parents because he said he was fine with it. Sadly enough his family goes to my inlaws church :(. This didn't help Adam with going to church but we are all being patient with that. He told this kid "this is what I think of your verse" and flipped him off :).. They were both smiling during all this. He was a bit nervous about going in to school today but knows this is what he wanted. I'll keep you updated. Have a great day! Food: breakfast on last blog, cup of cottage cheese, salmon salad with broccoli and olives and lowfat cheddar cheese. sugar free butterpecan ice cream at local outdoor ice cream shop. boneless pork chop with asparagus and broccoli. Had a great Zumba class last night as well.

    It figures that someone would say something. What ever they may think, that doesn't have to be.

I'm glad that you are keeping focused with going to Zumba. It sounds like fun.

Happy Thursday

Thursday, April 07, 2011

I got alot of great info at my Zumba class last night. Kim told me she would love to certify me in primary dance instruction. Wow. That is a big deal around the dance world in our area. She said there is alot more involved than becoming a Zumba instuctor so I should get certified in that first to start teaching and make some money. I talked to the Zumba instructor and she said she would be happy to mento me in the process. Basically all I have to do is go to an 8 hour certifacation course. Of course there is more involved that she would help me with. Choriography, music selection, heck I can't even look at myself in the mirror while we are in class :). So it will take time but omg this is great! I am nervous. I haven't worked outside of the home in 15 years. I will definitely need my Spark buds to be here for me. I have my rockin crazy Zumba class tonight. I can't believe this week has gone by so fast. Rock on!
Adam was in a great mood yesturday. He told me this morning that he is going to talk to his swim instructor about how him coming out at school may affect his relationship with the guys on the team next year. I thought that was very mature of him. He amazes me every day. Food for the day: I had cup of cottage cheese, 2 squares of dark chocolate, broiled ham, asparagus. Last blog had breakfast and snacks. I'm feeling much healthier every day lately. I actually did some cleaning and organizing yesturday. I'm headed to breakfast with Joe at our favorite little hole in the wall. I always have my eggbeater omlette with ham and tomatoes. Yum! Have a great day!

    Amazing! An instructor! THAT is a great compliment in itself. You sound very excited and it's infectious!

Good that you got some cleaning in. I got on the treadmill this morning!

Things seem to be getting busy at your place for other things than just your son. You are getting on too. It's great!

Having a good Wenesday.

Wednesday, April 06, 2011

I'm in a good place today. I'll take it. My clothes are fitting so much better. All these dance classes are really starting to help me with my body as well as my mind. As I'm getting to a better place my food choices are getting back on board. I'm also not searching for a glass or two of wine every night as well. I know there will be many days on the rollercoaster but lately it's felt like one of those kiddy train rides instead of the whopper cork screw coasters emoticon.
I met with my therapist today (if you couldn't tell). She said we are doing everything right. Which is nice to hear but doesn't make things easier. She said I'm handling my mother very well. My mom is going to see her next Wenesday and I think that will be good for her. I hope within the next few sessions we can start working on me. I could use some help myself :). Can't we all.
Adam is home today. He was throwing up all night. So I get to baby him all day :). He feels much better now so we are just watching some old classic Looney tunes :).
I have a Zumba class tonight. Yeah! It's the class where I will get to talk to the girl who thinks I should be an instructor. We will see how that goes. I'll keep you updated. Hope you are all having a good day! Food: I had an egg with tomatoe and bacon on ciabatta bread. Not very healthy but comforting before my session. A cup of cottage cheese. half cup of activia yogurt with a sliced banana. I plan on having salmon salad with some steamed brocolli for dinner.

Happy Tuesday.

Tuesday, April 05, 2011

Adam came home fine yesturday. He said Shirag had been joking that his watch was gay. He asked why does every watch you wear look gay. Adam brought him away from the crowd and told him. Shirag smiled and Adam said I'm serious i'm gay. He said ok and he'd try to be serious about it. Adam texted him about it at home if he had any questions. Shirag said no but he was just surprised. He was good last night but seemed preoccupied this morning. I had a Cobb salad for lunch and Activia with sliced apple for a snack. I ended up having a carton of lowfat cottage cheese for dinner with a piece of boneless chicken breast. I had a 90 calorie chocolate chip granola bar, and two single weight watchers toffee ice cream popsicles after my hip hop dance class. I felt kinda sick all day yesturday but I knew from the stress I needed to expend some energy. I thought I wouldn't dance my best but anything would be better than no calories burned on the couch. I had a pretty good workout considering. I woke up feeling kinda sick again today. yuck. I'm realizing Easter is only a couple weeks away and I'll be hosting 24 people for a sit down dinner. I have to admit I have been extremely lax on my house. I have a lot to do. So I will be good to myself but work on this house too. I have a Zumba class at 9 30am. Not sure if I'm up to it. I'll rest for a bit and see how I feel. I hope you all have a great day!

    Cottage Cheese is one of my staples you will always find in my fridge but I always have fruit with it.

    Just remember, all those people coming to your house for dinner on Easter are there to see and visit with you and your family, they aren't there to inspect your house. They won't notice or care if the house is a bit dusty or cluttered. :-)

    Hey, I too have a 9:30am Zumba class. And I am definitely going!!! I even wearing new sneakers that I bought for this class. Maybe we could be virtually workout buddies today.

It sounds like Adam is doing fine with his openness. Good for him. I have not read your blogs of late....not be very supportive huh? I am not sure why they don't show up on my friend feed? I truly try to pick and read several a day.

Please remember I am always a click away!!

    Hi friend, there you go the world did not implode. Adam survived and his friend understood. Teenagers do see everything as life and death. its only as we age that the grey spreads. I'm sorry that you are not feeling well but just hang in there and remember "you should come first in your life" I think you handled your mother correctly also. The less ammunition you give her the less she can hurt you.
Take care of you.

I guess three days of peace is better than zero?

Monday, April 04, 2011

Adam woke up and yelled at me when I let him know he was about to miss the bus. Adam never yells at me. He got to school and texted Joe that he was sorry he yelled at me and he hardly slept at all last night. He then texted Joe that he told his friend Shirag that he is gay in first period. Now Shirag is a kid who can't sit still. Who is always making a joke and is basically trouble waiting to happen. Very intelligent though. Shirag said thats ok and that he will try be serious about it. Not sure what that means exactly. By lunch everyone should know now. Ugggggg. I'm actually pretty calm right now. I think I get like that when things get really big and I have no control over them. So here I am at home waiting to see how things pan out. I'm meeting Joe for lunch so that will be comforting. I'm choosing not to confide in my mom about this its just to much. So here I am blogging it out. I had some greek yogurt with sliced banana for breakfast and some decaf coffee. I'm drinking some green tea now.
The party went ok yesturday. I can't stand my sister inlaw. The one who is still with the abusive heroine addict. She makes me physically ill. Making small talk with her is almost as bad as a root canal. I trudged through and did it without even a glass of wine :). The kids had a great time. I had a great Zumba class yesturday but she added a song that does alot of arm work and omg my shoulders and back are killing me. I guess it wil get me ready for tank top season :). I hope my Spark friends had a nice weekend. I'll keep you updated.

  You have a teenager in the house, there is not a lot of peace when you have a teenager! Teens can be and usually are a bit volatile! Boys are just a year or two behind girls. I raised 2 girls and there was alwaysomething, or so it seemed. You have to roll with thepunches, do what you think is best, and come here to share and get things off your chest!!

    Let it go. I know as a parent that one wants to protect their kid, but he chose to open up to this. Unfortunetly, that means consequences. Times have changed. People react differently in school than in our time. I do hope that things go well for him.

As for you, enjoy your lunch. Try to relax.

    I know you will handle everything well since that is your track record, so to speak. Part of all this with Adam, for you, may be a little letting go. He is making the choice to tell people because as you've told him before to let it just be a part of him... I don't tell people I'm straight when I meet them or even in general. They will learn as they get to know me...

As a mother of grown children, there comes a time when what they choose(Adam telling everyone his 'secret') is not the same as what you would choose for them (being more discreet) but it is his life, his choice and he will have to deal with whatever comes from it... I know you want to protect him and it is very hard for moms to do, but there comes a time for every little one to fly...

    I think we all have one or more relatives that we cannot stand to be on the same planet with. Its sad that to be away from them means to be away from those I do care for, but that is how I cope.

As for Adam... I am praying for him and his continued growing.
