Silence is boring :)...

Saturday, April 16, 2011

Omg Adam is so funny. He texted us that it was so boring not to talk :). I knew this would be a challenge for him because he is so social. It was successful but he was soooo happy to come home and be able to talk. He said only about 40 kids signed on to do this at school. His good friend Amanda who has had a crush on him since kindergarten participated for him. That was so awesome. I just love her. When Adam told her he was gay he told her that if he did like girls she would be the one he would have liked :). I tried to get Josh to ask her out :) but he said he's still waiting for Jackie :). How did I raise such romantics? We are blessed. So we watched 3 horror movies yesturday! We are nuts. Before the movie we watched Scream 2. Loved it. Went to the movies to see Scream 4. AWESOME! Came home and watched Scream 3. Fun again but we were all tired. Thats alot of horror for one day. Food: another fasting day in Lent so I had Sushi for lunch and Sushi for dinner :). Both times were very yummy. And very healthy. I had my Activia with apples and greek yogurt , plain with bananas for snacks. Once we got to the movies though all bets were off. I had popcorn, M and M's filled with pretzels. Yum! and 3 mini Snicker's squares. Omg unbelieveably Yum! We sent the kids to get snacks and they came back with a mountain of them :). I had to send the rest to work with Joe today. They are way too tempting. So got my full movie experience sugar and all. But sometimes you just have to let go and get back on track the next morning. Thank God I have my hip hop class this morning. I'm going to bring it and burn lots of calories :). Have a great day Spark friends! I forgot to mention Adam's cousin who goes to a different high school participated as well :). She is amazing. She goes to the school our friend Mike teaches at and he texted us how awesome she is. At the time, around noon, she was the only kid he saw participating. We are blessed. Her sister who goes to Lemoyne college also participated. Thank God for an awesome extended family we have!

Silence day at school

Friday, April 15, 2011

Adam was so excited this morning he could hardly contain himself :). He was dressed all in red. When I say that I mean a red Yankees hat, red shirt, red shorts and black sneakers with red threading. He wore his silencse sticker on the middle of his chest. He is ready! He had a conversation with the bible verse kid and that kid felt bad. Good. He didn't do it the rest of the day and actually had lunch with Adam. Joe said who would have thought we would have produced such an advocate for anything :). Adam i awesome. He went to the GLAS meeting on Wenesday and there was another boy there. So maybe he is making a difference. We will see. No school next week! Yeah! We are psyched. Not to many plans but its nice to just hang out and let the kids sleep in. No homework or exams. I had my Rockin Zumba class last night. It was awesome as usual. Scream 4 comes out today. I bought the trilogy a few days ago and watched the first Scream with the kids last night. They loved it which I knew they would. It's my fav scary movie of all times. And I do love the classics but take scary and add funny and its a can't miss. So we are looking forward to seeing 4 tonight. Food choices have been pretty awesome. My monthly annoyance hasn't shown up yet and the craving have subsided. This perimenapaus crap is for the birds. So crazy.... I had my yummy omlette for breakfast, chicken cobb salad at Panera for lunch, Acitivia plain with sliced apple for afternoon snack, half cup plain greek yogurt with sliced banana for morning snack, Organic frozen entree with salmon cake, edemame with green beans and brown rice with chopped red peppers. Yum! Haven't had those in the house in a while because I haven't gotten to Hanaford much. I need to keep them in the house for those busy nights. I had a Weight Watchers ice cream bar during the movie :). So a very good day was had by all here. I hope my Spark Peeps have a great Friday!

    I saw the name of your blog and stopped by. I'm glad you had a good day and hope you have a fabulous weekend with more of that yummy food! :)

In response to MRDPOLING: The Day of Silence is a national youth movement bringing attention to the silence faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and their allies. Individuals' deliberate silence echoes that silence, which is caused by anti-LGBT bullying, name-calling and harassment. By ending the silence, people hope to make a first step toward building awareness and making a commitment to address these injustices. (

I am participating in spirit.

    It is so good to hear that stuff with Adam is going well, you still might get an easy out with your teenagers because Josh sounds like a good boy also Praise God for the gift of wisdom that He gave you and Joe to cope

Hey Spark Peeps!

Thursday, April 14, 2011

The sun is already trying to peek out this morning Yeah! Need that vitamin D. Adam ended a friendship yesturday. They were friends since kindergarten but Adam seems ok about it. He said that this kid can be really difficult so its fine. We will see. Another boy says he can beat Adam up because he is gay. I told Adam not to engage. The boy who kept quoting that verse keeps doing it. Adam's going to have a conversation with him about it today. He went to the GLAS meeting at school yesturday. He felt really good about that. Josh had his boy scout meeting last night and wore his rainbow braclet :). The versue quoting kid is in the troop. He did his annoying quoting at the meeting too. Josh handled it well, of course. So alot going on yesturday but everyone was quite level headed about it. I was very grumpy yesturday so I'm happy the sun will appear today. I had Chipolte with Joe for lunch yesturday. Burito bowl with chicken, salsa, lettuce and Guacamole. Yum. Half cup of Activia plain with sliced apple for snack. Half cup of plain Greek yogurt with sliced banana for afternoon snack. 90 calorie granola bar before Zumba class. This is bad :(-Weight Watchers Cookies and Cream ice cream bar for dinner :(. I came home and didn't feel like making anything. Oh well. It was Weight Watchers :). Have a great Thursday Spark friends!

    There need never be guilt over food as long as you do what you want to do. There is no race in Spark like in weight watchers so enjoy your Weight Watchers Cookies and Cream ice cream bar for dinner. You won't do it everyday and at least it was not a MacDonald everything.
Is Adam finding a place for Jesus in his life. There will always be those who believe they are Christians because they think they are the only ones who can hear God's word. The thing is to grow in confidence by knowing what You believe.

    Adam sure is a strong kid!

And you really are doing well with your food choices! I know the SP emails that I get for making choices between this food or that food sometimes have two foods that I never would have selected as "SP" friendly. So having something like a Weight Watches Cookie and cream ice cream bar I think is a great choice when you think of the things you could have had that would have been bad choices!

Omg so dark and gloomy here in Upstate New York.

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

Wow talk about a morning you look outside and want to just pull those covers back up. Ugggg. Yuck. I'm glad I have blogs from Spark friends to inspire me. I need to actually function today so thanks for blogging :). So funny, my younger son wants me to buys some rainbow rubber braclets and or pin to wear to his boy scout meeting tonight! Isn't he awesome :). Adam is so blessed with such a supportive brother. Joe went out for beers last night with our friend Mike. Mike had some interesting info. He told Joe that his life has really come full circle. Let me give backround info. Joe met Mike at a job back 20 years ago when we had been engaged about 6months. He has been one of our favorite friends since. For about 10 years we didn't see Mike and it was very hard on us. Mike came back into our lives about 6 years ago and that is when he officially came out to us. So last night he told Joe that when they met he had a crush on Joe. He said he was going to persue Joe and then met me and loved me so let it be. Even his roomate said he should go for it. Hmmm I always liked his roomate. I'll have to have a talk with him. Now 20 years later to help Joe's son go through all this is surreal and affirming. All this kinda blew me away but I'm glad he told Joe. Joe was so great about it. Life is so interesting. Me who always feels she has to be in control of everything has been surprised and amazed more and more lately. I'm so blessed with a wonderful family and great friends. Spark friends I pray all of you have this in your life. Know you have it in me and love yourselves. Make your life what you want and surround yourselves with awesome people. You deserve it!

  Wow, you have experienced life and God in your life. Joe was Put there for a reason and that was to come back into your life now as support. "There is a season for everything under heaven..." and Joe has two seasons in your family. I hope this one is forever as a freind. emoticon
Sending the sunshine to end the gloomy day!

    That was a beautiful story. Life really does come full circle sometimes, in all kinds of lovely and surprising ways. Bless you for being such an understanding Mom. And don't sweat the dreary days--remember the old saying about April showers (and drizzles, and mists) bringing May flowers. (And you know what May flowers bring, right? Pilgrims!)

    I am so glad that I have you as one of my Spark friends, I think you are just awesome with the way you and your family have coped. If only other mother and families could be like yours there would be so much less suffering. I am also so glad that I made the positive choice to join Spark and get my life to a happy positive place

    we had a wonderful walk in the rain this morning in upstate New York - sorry you missed it!
let go and let life - you'll find some interesting stuff out there when you drop the reins. No matter how hard we try we can never be in control of life! That's a good thing because in our efforts to make some things work we'd miss out on other good things!
Relax and enjoy the ride!

Hi Spark friends

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

Having a meloncholy kinda day. The monthly annoyance will show up soon and of course is effecting my mood. I had a eggwhite omlette this morning with spinach, lowfat cheese black olives and mango salsa. Yum. I went to my Zumba class and got some awesome info from this instructor. The women in this class are so positive and supportive (like my Spark Peeps). So when I told them they were so excited for me and can't wait until I can teach their class :). Of course that did help my mood. Had lunch with Joe, my fav chop salad at the Pasta Factory. I went grocery shopping so at least I have the healthy stuff in the house. I will be having a busy afternoon once the boys get home. I need to pick Adam later at school bring him for his allergy shots, bring him to practice, bring Josh to his haircut, pick Adam up from practice, get his hair cut and come home to watch Glee and American Idol. whew! Have a healthy night!
