Back to normal Monday...

Monday, April 25, 2011

Everything went so well yesturday. We went to mass at Mike's awesome gay friendly church and it was a beautiful experience. It was so nice to walk in this beautiful stained glass windowed church and here my wonderful friend playing the flute with the band. The last time I heard him play he was playing at my wedding 19 years ago :). He is so talented. Adam really connected to this church. I could feel it. He actually sang along with the hymns. I haven't seen that happen in about 2 years. There were many teens and children there. It really was great. I almost cried with relief that we had found a place to worship that my entire family was on board with. Even Joe sand and smiled and enjoyed the whole experience. I haven't seen that in a long time as well. It was such a wonderful feeling for me. Josh had always sung with me and read along in the scripture books. He loved this church too and really enjoyed the band with the bongos and triange. :) The families were great. Everyone was pleasant and it was so cute to see babies in the house again. Now that we have 9 teenagers in the family its fun and nostalgic to have 2 eight month olds and 2 year old running around :). I sent all the candy and left over pies to work with Joe. Now I just need to throw out the darn butter rolls that are calling me. Blogging has helped convince me that they need to hit the garbage as soon as I'm done here :). Just love my Spark! Hope all is well with my Spark Buds. Have a healthy Monday!

Happy Easter my Spark Peeps!

Sunday, April 24, 2011

It was a very successful day. Kids woke us up at 6:30am to check out Easter baskets :). We went to Mike's church at 11am. It was really nice. Adam actually smiled alot and sang hymns! Joe was actually happy about being there. There was a woman on the alter which I found awesome! Usually a priest is the only one in many Catholic churches to give the homily. It was inspiring. it was great to listen to Mike play the flute in the choir. Haven't heard him play since our wedding. It brought back great memories. That was almost 19 years ago! Boy we were all kids then... Dinner went well and everyone did a great job helping with clean up. So happy to be resting and home with just the 4 of us. Hope everyone had a wonderful day!

Wow so much to do! Spent 45 minutes at the bakery waiting for butter rolls, did a hip hop class, went to store to get tulips for centerpieces on dinner tables, came home set table with china and crystal for 16 people, made centerpieces and last but not least had neices and nephews over to decorate Easter eggs. I'm spent. Happy to sit for a bit. Everything does look beautiful. We have china settings from 3 generations of this family. I mix and match them and it makes for a beautiful and sentimental tables. I do love this day and all it represents. It's very special to me. Thanks spark friends for all your love and support. I hope you all have a beautiful Easter if this is a holiday you celebrate.

Feeling great and ready for the weekend!

Friday, April 22, 2011

So psyched its Friday! Joe has worked so much this week. Omg so much. He is so awesome at his job. I'm so proud of him. That be said he has been working his tail off and he needs some family time. He went with Adam to listen to Jared play guitar last night. I'm glad they had that time together. Jared invited Adam to stay over last night and watch movies. That was a big deal to me. Being Adams best friend I wasn't sure if Jared would be comfortable having Adam over night now that he is out. It wasn't even a blip on the radar to Jared and that is such a relief. So life it good. We are going to Mikes church for Easter mass. He plays the flute in the church band and I think this could be very good for Adam. Mike says its very liberal Catholic church with alot of gay people. Adam seems very psyched about this. So I will pray that this is what Adam needs. Omg almost forgot to blog about me :). I went to my morning Zumba class and the instructor brought me up front during a song and had me instruct class! It was awesome! No warning. Which is perfect for me. If she had asked me before class I would have freaked out. Just going up was exactly what worked for me. I had a blast! Many people have said they can't wait until I get certified so they can take my classes! How encouraging. This community is so positive. I love being around positive people. It brings me to such a great place. I'm really looking forward to bringing this class to people. Food: A cup of plain greek yogurt with sliced bananas, a cup of cottage cheese over a salad, Activia yogurt with sliced apples, 2 90 calorie granola bars, 4 servings of Popchips :(, Spicy shrimp with brocolli, no rice, boneless ribs, egg drop soup and weight watchers cookies and cream bar. Good thing I got 2 Zumba classes in. Have an awesome Friday my friends!

    I love Zumba, too. Did a class this morning. That is SO awesome that the teacher brought you forward. Sure hope you can get your certification and teach. That would be so great!! Glad things are continuing to look up for Adam. Hope Joe gets that family time he needs and you all deserve!! Take care, Marsha

    Finding a gay friendly church isn't an easy thing to do. If you do find one, embrace it!

Happy Thursday!

Thursday, April 21, 2011

I had a decent day yesturday and the sun actually tried to come out for about an hour yesturday. We met my sister inlaw and her family for the movie Source Code last night. It was awesome! One of the most interesting movies ever. It really was great. My neice is home from college and it was good to see her. Came home and watched Modern Family and Cougar Town. Laughed our butts off and headed to bed. Hubby has been cranky latey. I've been trying to be patient with him but last night let him have it. I told him this could be his outlet for dealing with his feelings about Adam but this is not a healthy one. If he needs to exercise more or cry it out that would be great but being mean is not an option. He kinda got it and did apologize. I want to help him with this but this will be hard on him to let go. I had a healthy chop salad for lunch and some stir fry chicken teriakye for dinner. Yum. Activia yogurt for snack. I had a cookies and cream weight watchers bar for dessert. I may get in two Zumba classes today. We will see. I have alot to do for Easter today. Didn't get my class in yesturday so would really like to get them both in. Have a healthy day my friends.

    I would call that far more than a decent day! Dealing with hubby's crankiness called for courage and diplomacy. Good for you! Sounds like you did some great, healthy eating and good plans for activity. Keep up the good work!!
