Hi Spark friends!!!

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

Well the weather is not great but I'm sick of being down because of it. I'm going to blog happy. I went to the bank today with my younger son this morning and helped him open up his first official savings account. He was very excited. He is so responsible about money and quite a saver. This quality will help him much in life. I'm missing my Zumba class tonight because we have free passes to the movie Source Code. I have alot to do today for Easter and am starting to feel overwhelmed. It will all happen but there is always one day that I feel this. Thanks for my friends who sent kind words on my status last night. Every once in a while I feel overwhelmed abou the past 4 months. Last night was one of them. I went to bed and cried in my husbands arms for quite a while and drifted off to sleep. I knew I'd feel better this morning and I did. It's like I'm just dealing with whats been in front of me and now that everything is calm and stable I can release all my feelings and I just let go. I'm good but glad I have an appt. with my therapist set up. So thanks again my Spark Peeps! You are the best!

    It is too be expected, now that things are more together you will find that your emotions will be closer to the surface just go on being good and kind to yourself. Remember you are a wonderful person

Omg this weather is awful!!!

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

I know the whole "April showers" thing but come on! It' s so dreary and damp here. I left the gym today after a fun sweaty Zumba class and there is nothing worse than walking out to damp thick air. I didn't even want to open the windows for a breeze while I was driving home. Anyway, enough whining. We are meeting Joe and Mike for lunch at Chipolte. Yum. Chicken burrito bowl with salsa and lettuce. I am getting things ready for Easter. I have more to do today but I don't feel too overwhelmed yet. I'm sure I will. It's all good though. I had my fun hip hop class last night. There are a couple of new girls in the class that are really fun. So that helps. This class has alot of people who work together so aren't all that friendly. It's nice to have fun friendly girls in the class now. I had a yummy cobb salad for dinner. I had one of my yummy organic frozen meals for lunch. Chicken with quino and edemame with sundried tomatoes. Yum. Adam has a baseball practice tonight. Which will be great for him. He had a great meeting with his therapist yesturday. He came out with a huge smile. She said he has done everything he wanted to do when he first came to her :). And we have all made it through! That was so nice. I'm so proud of him. Life is good. We are going bowling with friends after lunch and Josh may have some friends over tonight to watch Scream :). So in our vaca mode and loving it! Hope everyone has a great Tuesday with much better weather than we are having in Upstate New York!

Hi Spark friends...

Well it's spring break! Yeah!!! The kids are sleeping in and it's nice to know they are here. I love when they are home. We went to my neices Confirmation party yesturday. It was quiet which is good. The kids all hung outside which was great. Although unfortunately all of us adults had to be together. I just don't enjoy being with all these people anymore. Oh well, it is family. At least Easter is at our house and I will be very busy with preparing and cleaning up. So that will help with not having to make to much small talk. Eating was ok. I had my greek plain yogurt with sliced banana for breakfast, for lunch and dinner we had the food at the party: small meatballs, sausage and peppers, mini subs, pasta salad and deviled eggs. I had a little of each and felt good about it. We had ice cream cake too. I had some of that as well. I didn't have any of the junk snack food. That is a huge plus for me. I went to my Zumba class at noon and it was awesome! So I feel good about my choices considering what there was available. Have a great day!

  I always heard that there are two things you can't choose, neighbors and relatives! Sometimes we just have to put up with both! We have no relatives here other than our girls and our 2 grandchildren and that is a good thing. We don't even here from DH's sisters and haven't since his Mom died. My one sister is so needy and negative that it is difficult talking to her. The other sister has finnally accepted the fact that I am not stupid and no longer talks down to me. Ah, relatives! Our family is now made up of friends that we have made. I wish you a Happy Easter full of preparation and clean up to avoid those you wish to avoid! emoticon

So done with horror for a while ...

Sunday, April 17, 2011

Can you believe we went to the movies again last night ? I know we are crazy. Actually we had a date night. Yeah! :) I really needed it. All is well... just needed some hubby time. I needed to get dressed up really cute and act like teenagers :). We went out with my sister inlaw and her husband. We always have a good time with them. We saw Lincoln Lawyer which was awesome! I highly recommend it. But OMG we got popcorn and nachos! Joe and Doug showed up with this crap and none of us had dinner yet. The movie was at 6 20 and we were all starving. Two days in a row is not exceptable! I am back on today! We did go to a local italian place for dinner after and I had a nice ministrone soup. That was it. Joe was in rare form. He talked the poor waitresses ear off :). She was sweet and didn't seem to mind. I had a very healthy chop salad for lunch and my greek plain yogurt with sliced banana for breakfast. I went to my hip hop class at 10 30am which was awesome. I'm going to my fun Zumba class at noon today and then we have my neices Confirmation party at 3pm. That will be interesting. Hope all goes smoothly. Family drama... Have a great day friends!

    Yeah I like to eat before I go to a movie and my S.O. likes to go after a movie. But either way, we almost never get food at the theater; me: because of the unhealthiness of it. S.O.: because of the cost of theater food. (he's a penny pincher)

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!
