Hello sparkies!

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

So happy for the new year! Yay! After I spark I will make some yummy eggwhites with spinach and low fat cheddar. Yum! My foot feels a bit better today. Yesterday too. I'll take it. I bought some new sneakers. They are Saucony. They have a great high arch. I love them. So today is about taking down Christmas decorations. Let's do this! Today is also the official beginning of resolutions. We had family friends over for a Glee day :). We watch a lot of the first season on dvd. So fun. We had a bunch of snacks and yummy drinks. Sooooo...we begin today. Yay! I'm ready. I'm really ready for making a new me. Have a wonderful day my great friends!

    I got my tree down but still need to store it away. My goal is one tub full put away each day until everything is stowed. It didn't seem like this much when I brought it out!

Happy New Year!

Monday, January 02, 2012

So moving on to resolutions! No more soda...I'm excited to try this one. Healthy eating is now the normal again here. I will work on organizing cabinets and drawers. I'm thrilled it's a new year. For me this was such stressful year. So much change. I had an eye opener when Adam said at New Year's Eve dinner that it was such a great year. To him it was so freeing and so positive. I guess mine is the parents perspective. I was so worried about him this entire year. Worry, worry, worry...he seems so great a year later. Thank God. So a new year! I'm so happy about that! Today feels like New Years day to me. Saturday night we were at my sister in laws until 2:30am. Wow! We went to dinner at this really swanky restaurant and I did end up with a beautiful dress I had in my closet. The men wore shirts and ties and Joe wore a suit. Nice! Yesterday we slept until 10:30am and didn't leave the house until noon. Shopped for a bit and I took a nap for an hour and a half in the afternoon. We had dinner with my parents and brother and his family. That was a disaster. My parents were miserable. Uggg. They'll have to figure this out. So ...hope my Sparkies are all well and ready for an awesome prosperous new year! Let's hit it hard!

    You're starting this new year in a positive note. Good for you. Also great that you're not making your parent's problems yours.

Nice to have a day that you don't have to get up in the morning and start running around. Just relax and take it easy.

Hope that you have a good day.

    The no sode adventure should be interesting at first. Time to find something to keep yourself occupied when you get those cravings. As difficult as the year may have seemed, it was worth it all just to make it through everything and now you are all stronger, better people for it.

    Bet you looked great in your dress. I never like to take pictures, but I always like seeing them on SP. So, if you take pictures, why don't you?

Your resolution for no soda is a good one. Best wishes for success on that issue.

Glad you made it through 2011. On to a great 2012!! -Marsha

Ready for this New Year! New Year's Eve not so much...

Saturday, December 31, 2011

First we are going to dinner with Joe's cousin and his wife. I love them but they are in their 20's and I am not in my best place weight wise. :( I bought new nice dark wash jeans....very expensive... for dinner at this hot resturant. Well... I found out that on New Years women wear dressy pants or a dress there. Uggg...I don't have anything like that. :( I'm going to go shopping this afternoon for something. We will see. Then after dinner we are going to my sister in laws for the night. I'd say we will get there around 9:30pm so we will be there around 3 hours. I'm just not into that this year. I will do it for the kids. Their cousins will be there. I feel like nothing I say is right around them lately. I have to sensor everything. It's New Year's Eve for God sakes! I don't want to be editing every word. Ugggg... Joe has worked so hard this month. I've barely seen him. I'm feeling a bit resentful of this. He has today and tomorrow off and I should be happy but I'm just mad that he hasn't been around. I'm blessed to have such a driven man and since our kids have been born I've done a great job at reining him in about priorities but this month he just wasn't present at all. I'm very upset and concerned. I told him that January is going to be different. I think it will but right now I can't get out of this funk of being pissed. I will...I know I will but man.... So tomorrow will start a brand new year with alot going on. My dad is applying for jobs in Florida. I'm so happy for them to be moving to a warm place. I know they will love it once they are there. I know I will be packing them along the way and I will miss them so much. We will see...Let's just start with a new year. New healthy food in my house. Healthy choices. Lets do this!

    Never a dull day on your world, is there? Stay safe for this, I know that you're worried about everyone else, but you can only really control yourself. Even with everything going on, try to take even a little bit of time for yourself, you'd be surprised what even 10 minutes could do to clear your head with all the ciaos happening. Hugs.

    Hey there Snookums.

I really feel for you. I know what it's like to have driven man in the house. There are times when a person has to put their foot down and just talk. Maybe he's working really hard for a reason or he's avoiding some situation. Who knows?

I do hope that you have a good evening. I hate censoring myself as well. Why can't a person be themselves and just be accepted for what they are.

I'm here for you. Even if I haven't been on the computer as much these past few days.

Hang in there! Things will get better for you and for your family. Right?

    Hang in there...and be yourself...I have spent many years worrying about what others think of me and what I say, etc...I have learned I just have to be me and if people don't like it...that's just too bad...I can't be anything other than me.

Love to you, my friend...think happy thoughts!

Thanks so much for being here. I took it all in and will use what I can. I want to work on alot of decore take down today. I'll get some cleaning done and I'll call the podiatrist. I will work on good food choices as well. I'd like to get some cute top for New Years Eve dinner. Josh is at wrestling practice and Adam is still sleeping. He has swim from 9:30 to noon.

    Can you do anything like on a mini tramp that might ease the impact, or maybe water aerobics???

Just a thought. Love to you!! emoticon

I'm stressed

Thursday, December 29, 2011

K...I know what this is about. I'm stressed out. Josie working unbelievable hours. Adam is spending an enormous time at Chris's house. I'm feeling left out. I don't want to be the parents that lose their kid to the boyfriends family. I've found out that his dad let's them hang out in Chris's bedroom with the door open. I talked to Joe about this and we've decided to let them hang in the basement with the door open. We will see. I know Joe will more available after the new year but this is hard. Really hard. I'm trying. I feel like I've lost grip of situations here. Breathe...

    I here you my friend, it is hard to have to face your kids growing up but at least its in front of you and not behind your back. Thanks my friend for all your love and support during this really hard /hectic time in my life, believe me my wife also has to be very understanding when I'm away so much.

    This is stressful for any parent, and to ignore the being alone in the bedroom just isn't right. I agree with your worry, I know in my position I've told parents to establish values and parental opinions on their children and have trust they will do what is right for their future, but my parents tried that and I had a son when I just turned 18, it was very hard for me losing my freedom at that age, having to go to work, school to further my education, and try to be there for my son... it doesn't work. You are so right to enforce your rules for his/her protection, and stand firm. emoticon

    Time to take a step back and breath again. It's going to be ok. Adam is a teenager and will want to be away from home and be with his boyfriend, if they are not doing anything wrong then you don't need to worry too much. You have raised him well and as long as he knows what is expected of him at home and away, then try to give him some credit for now. You haven't lost control, I know you have issues with that, but you still have some control over things.

    I'm not looking forward to when my kids are old enough to start to seperate from me even though it's a good sign. We are trying to raise healthy self sufficient adults. We need to trust that we've taught them right from wrong & that they make good choices for themselves.
So much easieer said than done emoticon emoticon
