Hello Friday!

Friday, December 02, 2011

Soooo....interesting voicemail that I received a couple days ago. Friends of ours that we see a few times a year left me this. The husband is a college friend of Joe's. A great family. He is very religous and we've been concerned about how he would react about Adam. Joe has almost talked to him a couple times but hadn't yet. So.... the voicemail was to let me know their daughter was planning on asking Adam to her winter dance. Hmmmm.... so Joe talked to the dad last night and he seemed really good about it. We will see. At least the conversation went well. So two positive responses in one week. That is great! Josh's concert went well. I'm so proud of him. He works so hard and is so responsible about everything. :) I gush :). We are going to see the Muppet Movie tonight. Fun! Lunch was ok. I had a submarine. Hmmm....The sesame seed roll was delicious but all bad carb. I will do better. Have a great weekend!

    Sighing in relief for you and your friends. It is good to hear that you are getting positive responses for Adam and the whole family. I really hope things keep working out for you. You have ever reason to gush, you're a proud mommy with good kids to gush over.

Hello December...Let's go!

Thursday, December 01, 2011

Feeling really good today. I went to my awesome instructor Zumba class this morning! Love her! She gets me rockin! She is the teacher who inspired me to become an instructor. Not only is each class getting better but today I really feel liked I started to rock it again! :) Yay! I didn't look at the clock until 40 minutes this time instead of 30 minutes into the class. So I'm getting more endurance and strength. Score! I'm thrilled! I brought Josh to the dr. again about the pain in his back. He got an x-ray that came back negative. So that's good. He is out of wrestling practice and weight room for a week. He is bummed but safety first. Lunch with Joe and tonight a sports meeting at school and then Josh's holiday concert at the junior high. Busy day but successful one. Food is very good. Feeling more like myself. Have a great day!

    Your a zumba instructor? That's great! I get through about 10 minutes of zumba and feel like I am dying, but I normally push myself to 20 :-p Great job with the 40 minutes, and I hope the holiday concert goes well!

    It is soo good to know that you're back and going again like yourself. I hope that Josh heals fast and doesn't have anything serious with his back. I bet the concert will be a good one.

Wenesday and ready to move it along.

Wednesday, November 30, 2011

I'm happy to get this day going. I got so much done so far this week and really want to keep that momentum going. Food was better yesterday. Today will be better. Mom is working so I won't be distracted. My meeting with my therapist went well. Alot of catch up about Adam. I felt better but emotionally exhausted after the hour. I keep living day by day here and when I talk about everything that happens in one month ...ugggg it wipes me out. Glee was on last night. The end showed Santana coming out to her grandmother that she is gay. Her grandmother said awful things to her. She was able to be with her friends who completely support her. I told Adam how blessed we are that our family has been so awesome. We talked a bit about when we told the grandparents and how great they were. This show has helped so much this year. No Zumba today. I will work on the house and eat healthy. Have a great day!

    I don't really watch Glee, but I did see a scene about a girl being gay and that some guy spread the news, he got slapped.

It must be hard on you with all of the stuff going on.

Hopefully you'll get lots done at home today and behave yourself (eating wise).

Time to Zumba Tuesday

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

Happy to be heading out to Zumba soon. It's with my fun positive Zumba ladies. Yay! Food was pretty good yesterday except for a peanut butter nutella sandwich that I have had this bad habit of making myself while prepping for dinner. I don't know what the deal is with this. I did it alot the past couple weeks. I know this is when I usually have a glass of wine. Another bad habit has taken it's place. Any suggestions of a good substitute? I got alot done again yesterday. Score. I have an appt. with my therapist today. Thank God. I have so much to catch her up on. I'm surprised how together I've been so far this holiday season. Considering the year... I've really been lax on holiday decorating and tradition. I was working day to day just getting through so the extra's weren't happening. I thought if I got the tree up and outside stuff done that would probably be it. Surprise! I'm enjoying getting it done and really looking forward to enjoying the season. Hmmm...progress? Good friends of ours that we haven't seen since Adam came out to us stopped in to the dealership yesterday. Joe had told the husband a few weeks ago. He was great. Joe talked to the wife yesterday and she was great and would love to get together soon. She said that her brother is gay and when he came out to their parents their parents disowned him and don't speak to him. He went through a terrible time of drug use and hurting himself. We are so blessed. Thank God we are such a strong amazing family. Thank you again for such great friends!

    Well, it sounds like things are really looking up, whoohoo! I'm sure you'll feel much better after talking to your therapist. At least you're working your way up in the habits, a semi healthy sandwich is better than running to pour a drink anytime! Maybe if you had some fruit or portioned veggies to munch on while you make dinner it could help you. If its healthy and portioned it can help you keep from over eating and you can keep a little baggie in the fridge or someplace easy to grab while you are back and forth with prep work. I'm glad that your friends are ok with Adam. You are such a good family, wish you were my family sometimes!

    Not sure if you're making a new habit with the nutella. I myself, just don't eat while making supper. If anything, try water with a bit of flavour in it. Like lemon or lime.

You are a very caring parent for staying by your son. It isn't easy coming out like that and then hoping that no one rejects him.

Take care.

Let's go Monday.

Monday, November 28, 2011

Ready to get this house together. Mom is working today so I won't be distracted. Food not so great yesterday. It could have been worse. I'm back today. 4 day bad food weekend but now normal eating until Christmas! No excuses. So I have a difficult phone call to make. My best friend from high school invited me to a Christmas women's gathering at her home. For those who are long time friends remember how her daughter facebooked with Adam in the Spring about him being gay. She is 18 and was getting ready to leave for college. It didn't go well. One of the things she said was God made liars and theives but he doesn't want them to do those things either. When Adam tried to educate her she said she would pray for him....So I haven't seen my friend since then and now the party is Saturday. I know my friend feels as she does. Sadly I don't believe there is anything that will make things better for us right now so I must decline this party. It's so sad but I will pray that things will change for them.

    How sad. Dealing with closemindedness can really suck.

    I'll be praying for your friend so that she might be able to deal with this better for her own sake as well of you and everyone else she encounters.

    You need to make the decision for you, not for the friend. Sorry you are missing it, but in the long run - listen to your feelings first. HUGS.

    How sad for you. As time goes by, you will miss her less and less. Maybe she is trying to be a bigger person by inviting you, but by going, it may cause some tension. There is nothing wrong in declining.

People change. Sometimes they don't.

I have left behind two friends in the past year. I just couldn't be there for them anymore, and I really don't miss them.

  It's a shame that people can be so judging of others. I always pray for acceptance and people's general kindness
