Never do a double blog but....

Monday, May 23, 2011

Soooooooo bummed. Needed to blog it out... Just found out I am not going with hubby to Colorado. I really could've used this trip. The company is making it employees only. I kinda thought it was strange a couple other wives weren't going. Now I know. Kinda mopey around here and it would be easy to just binge these feelings away. So instead I will blog. I will go to the gym and dance it out tonight. I will have salmon and broccoli for dinner tonight. So my knew goal is to get bathing suit ready for July 8th. This is when we are leaving for St. Petersburg, Florida. Vaca with family. So I still have a goal. Have to keep moving forward. We did win a night in Cooperstown, New York. I will make reservations for the weekend before Joe leaves. Thats our anniversary weekend anyway. So lets keep perspective and not make this an excuse for being bad to our body. I've noticed that the past few weeks I've added more carbs to my diet and I've also felt bad. Hmmmm... will cut back and see if I feel better. Will work on getting more water in me. I've had a egg white omlette with low fat cheese, spinach and tomatoes. I had half a cup of plain lowfat greek yogurt with truvia sweetener. Lunch was yummy. Awesome chop salad. Thanks for being here Spark! Don't know what I'd do without you! Yes I do! I'd eat all the ice cream left in the freezer!

    I love egg white with cheese. emoticon emoticon

Don't be bummed. Do some fun day stuff with your sons or girlfriends. Day spa with the girls and dinner at a fun restaurant with the boys another day. Maybe rock climbing with your sister in law. Next thing you know it DH is back from trip.

    If it is not hunger food doesn't solve it. Glad you found other ways to deal. You will feel better in the long run

Looking for Serenity? Its found in Lake Placid!

Monday, May 23, 2011

What an awesome place. Just love it!!!! I feel so close to my boys...all 3 of them :) the minute we get into the village. We sat at lunch and Adam who is at that age where its hard to get info from just talked. It was great. We sat by the serene motor boat free lake for a while in our Adirondack chairs. Listening to the water hit the rocks and the breeze on our faces. A goofy joke would pass from Adam to Joe every once in a while and Josh and I would roll our eyes at each other. It was perfect. Had some chocolate chip cookies at The Mirror Lake Inn. Gorgeouse old resort set back from the village. Did a little shopping and headed home. God has blessed that part of the world. Got home and the kids still had homework :(. So Joe and I went to the sports bar down the street. I had a good chef salad and a glass of wine. I had a yummy chop salad at the brewery in Lake Placid. I am determined to get myself back on track with food. I'm going to have a yummy omlette for breakfast and will eat healthy for my health and darn it if I don't I have to shop for bigger clothes. I will not do that!!!! That's it! I'm here! I'm in!!!! Have a great day my friends!

    It is so wonderful that you and your family can spend some quality time together. I always teach in Baptism classes (and being Anglican its infant baptism) how important it is for families to have this kind of interaction. In our busy modern world this is so easily overlooked so I'm really glad you are having fun.

Heading away for the day with family....Yeah!

Sunday, May 22, 2011

I'm ready to get the heck out of dodge today! Love these days. Taking off like its a long vaca with no packing :). Lake Placid is like that. Just far enough away that ...Oh darn no cell service here in the mountains :). Close enough that we can be home before 8pm with a full day to relax. Birthday party went really well yesturday. Stayed a couple hours and had to leave for Church :). Found out that supposedly messed up sister inlaw left abusive heroin addict again. He can't be at the baby's Christening because social worker says he isn't allowed around the baby. Yeah!!!! So we will be there. Of course it is a month away so who knows what will be by then. I won't worry about that though. Life is too short. Stomache is off today because of the crap I ate last night :(. I will get it together. At least I am still on with workouts. Have a good day my friends!

    A day to focus on your family and yourself. Enjoy the day trip. Forget sister-in-laws baby daddy and forget any other worries.

hugs, Anne

    Enjoy your day!
I too, am getting a rare day away with my brother and his wife (but no kids) and going up to my sister's farm. She has a hot tub. I know where I will be spending my time :)) Got two hours of a cross country hike in this morning so exercise is in. Plan to eat light with sister as she is on the healthy food wagon too. Sun is out, no wind, perfect weather!

Good morning boys and girls...

Saturday, May 21, 2011

All is well here in Upstate New York. Heading to my hip hop class soon. Happy for that. I'm a little achey so ready to dance whatever that is out of me. Food choices were pretty good yesturday. I ate good choices but more than I should have because of nerves. Had to pick out rugs and flooring for the kitchen. Really don't enjoy decision making. Oh well. We have samples here and will sit with them for a while. I have my nephews sons bday party today. I will be happy when that is over. Lots of drama over there and cringe to think about it. Josh is having friends over for a fright fest of movies tonight :). That should be fun :). We may go to Lake Placid tomorrow for the day. We love it there :). Have a great day!

  The closest my husband and I have ever come to divorce was decision making over "decorating"! Hope it isn't too hard to decide!

Won't let the family drama in...

Friday, May 20, 2011

Omg had such an awesome Zumba class last night!!!! Really expended alot of energy and left feeling spent and great!!! Joe has some work today but it should only be the morning. My sister inlaw brought some more drama to us last night. She called about a Christening date for her daughter. My kids have said if the father, who is an abusive herione addicted theif is there they will politely send a fruit basket but will not be attending. It's not until June 26th so we have time before we really have to deal with it. I just don't want to start obsessing over it. I got caught in her messed up life about 2 years ago and I can't go there again. I have enough on my plate. I will let Joe deal with this. I need to let it go. Control issues set in. I will pray. Love that Serenity prayer. :) Have a good day my friends! Food was awesome yesturday. Made some fantastic Barbaque chicken with veggies. Yum!

I just came through enough drama to last me a life time! If you know what this is going to do to you; mind body, spirit, the stress levels it is definitely best to steer clear of it at all costs.
My drama was trying to help a paranoid pessimist who in the end didn't appreciate one damn thing I did for her. She was new to the town, had absolutely nobody and was feeling alienated. Her paranoia was she totally thought the entire town didn't want her there. She wasn't accepted. The more time I spent with her the more I needed to stay way from her She totally drained me of all energy. She was an energy taker!
She was also a pothead and a drinker.
I pulled out yesterday! I wanted no further part of it! It wasn't worth it! There's some people in this world family or not we just can't associate ourselves with.

    I agree that it is wise to let Joe handle the matter, after all it is his sister.

I am glad Zumba was fun and that you are eating healthy again. If only I could follow your lead!

    I, too, am working on NOT letting family drama control my life. A friend told me yesterday that a problem is something you can do something about. The rest is just a fact of life and can be set aside. Managed a good conversation with sisters last week because I decided ahead that getting them to agree with me, and do what I think is needed, was NOT my goal. I went in to gently lay out some issues and possible consequences. That much I was able to do. They are not taking it to heart (at least right now) but the decision is theirs, and it will be them facing the cinsequences, not me. I came home with more peace than I've had after a family meeting in years! God bless you!

  Letting Joe deal with also might keep you from looking like the "bad guy", key word being "Might". You are smart to stay away from the drama as much as youcan. enough drama finds us without our jumping into the middle of something that we know is more than we want to deal with. Life hands us enough without making more for ourselves. emoticon

    I think it's great that you are aware of the situation being more than you would like to be involved in...letting Jim deal with it seems reasonable since it is his sister...and...that allows you to keep your sanity! That is *always* a good thing...

Thanks, too, for your words about letting all these new emotions simmer before acting upon them...I will let myself experience them without jumping to conclusions to what they might mean... emoticon
