feeling better...

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

I got an email from the director who said she is setting up subs until I'm recovered. Yay! I feel better already knowing they will still want me after such a long absence. I was able to tape my foot yesterday and that helped so much. I took the tape off last night to air it out. I hope it doesn't get irritated so I can keep doing that for a while. Food was amazing yesturday. Eggwhites with lowfat cheddar and spinach with some pepper for breakfast. Almonds for snack. Steamed broccoli, chicken and lowfat chedder with balsalmic dressing for lunch. Greek yogurt for snack. Haddock with a tossed salad for dinner. Perfect. :) Day two of healthy eating today. If I work this for a week I will be back. I just have to get the bad stuff out of me for a bit. Remind my body of how good I feel with the healthy stuff in it. I'm working on not eating out so much either. We've been looking at how much we spend on eating out and it is crazy. So that should help too. I did alot of chores in the house yesterday. That was great. I was able to rest alot too because I didn't even leave the house until 4:30. Josh is nursing a broken heart today. I have to keep an eye on him. He holds everything in and momma bear is watching. He falls so hard. I just love him :). Hope everyone has a great day!

    Awwww....Poor Josh. I do hope that he feels better soon.

As for you, you're poor foot. At least you know that you have a job to go back to that you so enjoy. I'm happy for you.

    I've found that cooking at home with healthy food is less expensive and so much fun too. We go to a healthy food store at the beginning of the week to plan meals like what you ate yesterday and even the shopping is fun. Yes, even eating healthier food is less expensive than going out. Thanks for sharing and wishing you a speedy recovery!

Fun fun fun!

Adam had a blast at the homecoming dance. So adorable. No drama...just fun. His friend Tori is such a sweetie. They had the hayride before it which was great. He stayed over at Tori's house and was there until we picked them up for rehersal. Once again we didn't see the wife. Josh stayed over his friends house Saturday night too. I slept in Sunday and we had lunch with Mike. So great to spend time with him. He was surprised Adam stayed over at Tori's. He said to be careful with that. Even though Adam is gay he may want to experement and sleep overs may be trouble. Hmmmm...something I just didn't even consider really. So there is something else to think about. After rehersal I asked where he slept and he said on the trundle in her room. I told him at their ages that is not appropriate. He said Ummmm mom I 'm gay? I understand but still not appropriate. He just smiled at me. :) So confusing. So I e-mailed the director of classes this morning that I won't be able to teach for at least 4 more weeks. Ugggg.....I know my spark friends are very happy I am now committed to recovery but it broke my heart. I'm taping my foot again hoping it doesn't blister. It felt much better yesterday when I taped it. I feel like I'm such a baby about all this. Joe is almost like ....just buck up and get on with it. Thanks to my sparkies I know I'm not just making this up. I slept in again this morning. I'm very concerned about my eating. I'm feeling bloated already. I'm getting back to basics here today. I haven't been drinking enough water. I know that. Sweets have been on my radar much too frequently. I wil get back to strength training that won't effect my foot. I'm not going to add weight gain to my sadness....Thanks for being here.

    I'm sorry that it will take so long for your foot to be as ready as you are now, but it is for the best to rest it for now. I know you worry about Adam with sleepovers and all, but I think if you really show some support and make sure you let him know exactly what is expected of him while he is away from home no matter where he is he can rise to the occasion. He's a good kid, be honest and open with you and make it known that he can be open and honest with you as well.

    Oh, did the doctor tell you four more weeks? Wow. I'm sorry to hear that.

It's nice to hear that Adam had a great time. Memories are always nice to look back on.

Take care of that foot of yours.

    I'm feeling a bit bloated, too...and I am thinking sweets may be my culprit as well. We will figure out what our bodies want and treat them with the love and respect they deserve!

I'm glad Adam had a good time at the dance and the sleepover...yes...so many things to think about with our children, huh?

Sending healing energy your way, get better soon! You'll be teaching in no time!

Homecoming :)

Sunday, September 25, 2011

Adam went to his first homecoming dance last night :). His amazing friend Tori asked him to go with her to her dance. So adorable. He stay at their house last night so I'm looking forward to hearing all about it. Her dad is our friend who is battling lymphoma. He didn't look well last night. I have questions... he and his wife don't have a very loving marriage and things seemed extremely off there last night. Ok...she wasn't even there. She takes pictures when one of the girls cuts off their toe nails....ok not really but.... she wasn't there. When I told him we'd be there to take pictures he had a weird sound to his voice. While we were there she wasn't really even mentioned. Hmmmmm...I will pray. We've known them forever. In each others weddings. There for each others births. I just don't know how this is going to go. I will pray. I hope the kids had a great time. They are both awesome kids. Food was pretty good yesterday. Breakfast was greek yogurt. Almonds for snacks. Lunch was cobb salad with no cheese and balsalmic vinegrette. Lowfat cheddar cheese for snack. salmon steak with side salad and spinach for dinner. I did eat a small piece of cornbread with dinner. I'm not feeling excited about my food lately. I feel so bummed that I"m not burning off any calories with exercise. I'm going to call my podiatrist tomorrow. I may go to a water aerobics class on Monday night. We will see what they say about that. It just seems strange that I'm still so worn out just from walking through the mall. Does that sound right? It will be 2 weeks on Wenesday. Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

    I can't wait to hear how the dance went. Your body is trying to heal itself, that could be why you're so tired sometimes. An injury can take alot out of you. Take it easy and do what the doctor tells you and nothing but! I don't want to hear that you went off and did something else and hurt yourself now, that is what my mom is doing to herself and it isn't pretty!

    I've got to ask...What is a homecoming dance and what is the significance? (We don't have those here, let alone proms).

Anyhow, it's sad how things happen in marriages, be glad that you and your husband are going strong. Sorry that your friend is ill.

I find that injuries take lots out of a person. Whether you realize it our not, your body is taking energy just to heal. That's why sleeping is so therapeutic.

Hope that you are do well otherwise and that you have good news from your podiatrist.

Hugs.

Ready to blog

Saturday, September 24, 2011

Last night became much quieter than I expected. Minutes before we were to leave for Josh's football game Adam passed out in the kitchen! He fell to the floor and came to pretty much right away but wow! We called the dr. right away and they seemed to think that this happened to teenagers. Hmmmm...He said he was ok but tired. Joe went to the game and I stayed home here with Adam. We watched alot of tv. I had my foot up most of the night. I strained something when I jumped up off the couch when Adam fainted and so I'm babying it again. Josh's team got crushed. In the rain :(. Bummer. He showered and headed to rehersal. We decided to put off getting together with MIke. My house has been a mess since I hurt my foot and was not ready to entertain here. I went to bed early after having a not healthy dinner of 6 chicken wings, 3 peices of chicken parm chicken...no cheese, and 2 meatballs. Uggggg.... not happy about that. New start today. No plans this morning! Yay! We are going to Pizzaria Uno for lunch. A fundraiser for the swim team. I will definitely have a salad there. Adam has a homecoming dance tonight. Hopefully that will go well. Have a great day.

    Wow! It doesn't seem right that passing out is something that 'teenagers do' but I hope he is alright. Enjoy your salad...I always like them better when someone else does the vegetable chopping, haha! Have a super day and rest that foot of yours so you can boogie!

Busy Frday...

Friday, September 23, 2011

I know, I know aren't I always busy? Yes but two Friday's in a row up and out running errands before 8:30am. The most important appt. was at Joe's cardiologist. Thank God his ct scan came back perfect! Yay! He has a great heart. Which I knew already :). So I have about 45 minutes until busy ensues again. I have my foot up and happy to give it a rest. Josh has a football game and then they both have rehersal for the play. Joe and I are meeting Mike for a drink while they are at rehersal. That will be nice. Food has been amazing the past couple days. I'm feeling more like myself. Even without the endorphines. :( Hope all my sparkies are having a great Friday!
