First major disappointment...

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

Ok. So the friend I told about Adam a couple weeks ago? It was her daughters grad. party Saturday. The daughter is a sweetheart and we just love her. She came over Sunday afternoon just to spend more time with us before she leaves on a mission to Uganda for 5 weeks. Anyway, she texted with Adam last night. She asked him why he would choose to be gay.... He, being the amazing awesome kid he is tried to educate her. She then said well liars and cheaters are made by God but its not how he wants them to be... and he doesn't want you to be that way. I know its her parents influence. I know we need to help educate her... it was just a knife in my heart. Adam did great and says he is good. He knows we will worry about him and wishes we didn't . How can we not. To have someone who we love feeling this way about our son is torturous. I really thought she would be good. She has friends in school who are gay. She even considered going to prom with one of them. I'm sure she didn't get into that conversation with them. I think she is confused. I think she is torn. Her parents have poisened her mind. That is their fault. Sadly she is one of my oldest and dearest friends. I will go slowly with this. I ate awesome yesturday. I'm back. Greek yogurt for breakfast, Chipolte chicken burrito bowl with only chicken, salsa and lettuce for lunch. activia plain yogurt for snack, chef salad for dinner. I went to my hip hop class last night. That was awesome! Adams best friend was here last night when Adam got the texts and he was a great support. We all realized not one kid from school did this too him and such a close family friend has. She is struggling I think. Questioning is good. I hope we can help her.

  So sad that there are some people so fearful that they have to be terribly judgmental. yes, God made all things and al people. If we really think about that then we are saying that God made evil as well as good, and maybe He/She did. God made both male and female yet some believe that the male should dominate the female. In the time of the old testament the priests in the temple weren't married. Maybe they were gay, I don't know but I know that being gay isn't a choice it is the way one is born. I hope that this young woman and her family come to understand that. It must be really hard to have close friends not understand!

    God doesn't want be to be judgmental, but she (her parents) apparently are. It is sad that she has to live such a conflicted life. The Bible was (re)written by homophoebic people. It is difficult for some people to see this for the contradiction that it truly is.

    Adam is soooo lucky to have a mom and dad so loving and supportive!

    It sounds like you and DH did a great job in raising Adam. He is a confident young man. He is self assured and that comes from upbringing.

Hugs, {{Anne}}

    It's horrible how some feel the need to judge others. If this is a true friend there will be understanding not criticism. Your son is a strong person to take the time to educate those that do not take kindly to his being gay. It's hard to overcome hatred from people who already determine being gay is wrong. Bravo Adam for being the better person.

Looks like you are right on track with your food intake. emoticon

    How unfortunate for that to happen. I know that Adam is doing his best for educating people, but there are times that a person has to step back and let them come to their own answers in their own time.

She knows Adam. In the end, after she does some soul searching, she will make some sort of decision. What will happen, not sure.

Good to know that you are back on track with the eating.

    Lately, I've gone on rants. I will try to be civil.

"Choosing to be gay!" What a concept! We are given freewill to live how we feel inside. I truly believe that. I just came back to the church after 40 years. This type of thinking made me leave the church. Today, I know that God loves us all including the poisoned minded ones who will twist words. I wish your family the best and your son the strength to deal with any adversity that he encounters. Obviously, he can already handle himself with dignity. Rock on, Adam.

    Your son sounds like an amazing young man, and hopefully his influence (and yours) will start to change the way this friend views things, even if the effects aren't obvious to begin with. Sometimes all it takes is one little seed to start changing minds, one at a time.

    She is struggling, trying to balance what she feels in her heart with what has been poured into her head.

Your son is well grounded and strong. Have faith in him and his ability to ride through all of this.

  It is sad that a young person would compare negative acts such as lying and cheating to who a person loves. My neighbors and dear friends are a lesbian couple, and they fight this kind of ignorance daily just by living their lives positively and educating people along the way. Your son is blessed to have you in his corner, and I look forward to a world where who you love is not judged on race, gender, or any other criteria. I wish you well!

The day went well.

Monday, June 27, 2011

The Christening went ok. I think I'm definitely getting to a better place with my sister inlaw. Slowly but thats ok. Food choices were ok there. They only had macaroni salads of many kinds and hamburgers and hot dogs. I didn't have cake which was good. But ... came home and had a big bowl of ice cream with family :(. So not a good day with food. That stinks. I will do better today. I'm going grocery shopping today and getting healthy stuff. Less than two weeks from vaca. Back to no carb! Thats it! Have a good day!

    You blog was ok. I wouldn't have a problem not eating macaroni salad, since that is not ok with me.

Not ok with the ice cream, but your future trip to the grocery store is ok.

Okay? emoticon

Hoping for a good Sunday.

Sunday, June 26, 2011

We went to my high school girlfriends daughter's graduation party yesturday. It was nice. She is a sweetheart. I ate so well. I had some carrot sticks, celery and chicken. NO CAKE! It wasn't chocolate so that was kinda easy :). I did have 3 Corona Lights and a couple vodka with arnold palmer. Ok that was a bit too much. I know. Summer is here :). Will do better with that today. We are going to my neices Christening today. I think a little hangover will be good for me. It will keep me distracted from what I may see. Taking that minute by minute. I will make great food choices today. I'm still doing my planks and upper arm strength and it feels really good. I'm able to keep the pose much longer in one week. Yeah! I will start my Zumba song tomorrow again. I feel better about it. Hope my Sparkies have a great day!


NY has made it possible for my son to marry...when he's not a teenager :)

Saturday, June 25, 2011

Well I said all was needed for Adam to come out and things would be changing here in NY! We watched it happen on television last night! We all cheered and went to bed very content. Not only for that amazing awesome announcement but because the man of the house was home :). I was feeling very weak yesturday. I wanted to binge soooo bad. I made it through, with the help of my Sparkies. I felt so much better this morning. I'm so happy Joe is home. That was not a good time. Going to Zumba this morning and a graduation party later today. I hope the weather holds out for them. Have a good day my friends!

    Great news! I'm from Massachusetts and I think people saw that the world didn't end when we allowed same sex marriage here. I hope more and more states will see the light.

    God bless the state of New York! I wish the voters of California had been so enlightened.

And yes, DO remind Adam that he still needs to wait awhile. I know how teenagers can be, believe me.

My hubby is headed home!

Friday, June 24, 2011

Thank God!!!! I am not good at this living single thing. I hate it actually. I am definitely one where absence makes the heart grow fonder. Omg! So today I have bits of errands to finish up before Joe gets off the plane. I'm still working on the darn pool! Every morning I wake and the pressure is way down again. Uggggg! Next house....NO POOL! Anyway. I rocked the food choices again! Almost at bathing suit body! Another week of this consistency and I'll be there. Went to my crazy Zumba class last night! Omg went a little crazy there. :) Glad they turn the lights down :). Just boogied my brains out. I can't believe how much I depend on my workouts now to get rid of stress! I actually counted down the minutes until my class for a couple hours. I took the kids to Friendly's for lunch and then bowling. The weather is so not cooperating for these kids who want to celebrate school being out. They had fun though. I didn't even have ice cream at Friendly's! Thanks Sparkies for being here! Your awesome!
OK adding to my blog some whining..
.Feeling really down right now about the pool and sitting very impatiently for husband to get back. Picking him up at 7:30. It's only 4:30. Ugggg... This weather is bringing me down and this day has felt like a week. Trying to stay great with eating but when I'm like this all I want to do is eat. I had a small chef salad for lunch and greek yogurt for breakfast. I had some plain activia yogurt for snack and a handful of cashews. I'm going to try to keep it together.

Areyou gonna continue exercising even when Hubby is home?
OK to take a break, but don't drift too far away!
