Good morning Sparkies!

Monday, February 13, 2012

Feeling good today! I did 30 minutes of dancing and that felt great! I plan on doing more with Josh when he gets home. I took a shower, got ready for the day and had a healthy yummy breakfast! Eggs with low fat cheddar, spinach and salsa. Yum! I'm planning on a healthy day! I don't think I blogged to much about the Winter Ball....The boys had a great time. We went to Chris's house to take pictures and that was really nice. Chris's family are wonderful people. We then brought the boys to Adam's great friend Ellen's house. They met up with a few other friends and then we drove them over to school. Joe and I left them there as they held hands walking in to school! They are amazing. :). Joe and I went to dinner at a near by italian restaurant with some great old friends whom we've been waiting to spend time with and catch up about Adam. Dinner was great. Conversation was great. We laughed and reminensed about our 24 years as friends. We picked the boys up and brought Chris home. Adam told us that everyone was great. He did tell us that some kids stared at them while they were slow dancing. Josh said the perfect thing....we it's not the usual thing you see. That was true. It was different. No one said anything bad. Actually a kid on the bus the next day said him and his girlfriend saw them at the dance and thought Adam and his boyfriend were adorable. :) Unfortunately the other gay couple at the dance...the boy whom gave Adam such a hard time in elementary...him and his boyfriend were broken up may times on the dance floor because they were being really dirty and inappropriate on the dance floor. So that is not what Adam wanted to put out there about a gay couple at the dance. So that wasn't good but Adam and Chris had a great time. They've been together 4 months now! Wow does time fly! I had another moment during last week...I was bringing the book that I checked out of the library a year ago for Adam. Our friend Mike had recommended it to Adam last year to help him with coming out. It was great. So I sat in the library parking lot weeping a bit for the year we've had. I texted Mike and had a good laugh about somethings. It was a moment of closure. A moment of...we did things right... a moment of ....instead of reading about how to come out and have a healthy relationship...Adam is experiencing one :). So that was a moment. An emotional one but good one. I'm feeling more able to feel good about how we've handled this. I hadn't let myself for a year because I was so worried. So worried. I'm feeling like anything is possible :). So now I can dance! I can not worry ...as much :). Time to get back to me a little. I know we have all heard about Whitney Houston's death over the weekend. How awful. Huge those you love even closer today!

    I remember when you were so worried, yet in all of that, you stayed focused. You asked for advice, help, put a thought out there, received reassurance.

I marvel that you managed to keep working out and not really fall into some type of major depression. You are so strong. You and your husband faced the situation and came up stars!

So glad that things worked out. I also don't think that any parent ever stops worrying about their child/ren.

Have a great day.

Hi friends!

Sunday, February 12, 2012

I have really been lagging on my blogs lately. Guess what! I can dance again! I went to the dr. this week and yay! Soooo I'm waiting on the classes because I tend to push myself in them. I've been standing and dancing during the wii just dance game. Fun! I've been doing it with the boys :). So fun! I've been getting sweaty and feeling good! Yay! One day I did one hour the next 30 minutes. I think its a good mix for now. Four days a week feels so good! Food is a bit erratic. Good days and then bad. I'll work on getting more blogs logged in. Happy my endorphins are returning :). So today is good. Hope my friends are having a great Sunday!

    Yay! You can dance again. I was waiting to hear about your foot. Nothing worse than an injury to slow a person down.

Have fun doing your dancing!

What a busy weekend!

Monday, February 06, 2012

Friday night we went to a friends house and finally had the full conversation with them about what we went through last year. That was draining but I think it went well. My friend I know was upset we hand't talked with them and were able to share and help through the experience. I told her that our families only got together as families and it was too much to and inappropriate to have the conversation with all the kids there. I had asked her many times last year for time to go get a cup of coffee or dinner out just us adults but it never happened. Finally Joe told the husband when they had gone to get food recently and he was able to talk to his wife after we left. She is very true to the bible in her beliefs and we were concerned about how it would be received. She was great. Saturday. Adam and Chris went to the Winter Ball! It went great. They had a great time. They slow danced together and walked in hand in hand. Life is good. We went out to dinner with friends whom we haven't seen since we told them about Adam. It was a great dinner and we really enjoyed catching up with them. It was a great distraction while I waited for the boys to be picked up from the dance. The Super Bowl was fun. Yay Giants! Food choices not great. I'm back today! Healthy choices and more couch dancing! So today I"m ready to do good. How about you?

    Glad everything went well. I'll hold my Poli-rage on religious beliefs. (I was raised Roman Catholic but am not judgmental, have a problem with human doctrine, and strongly pro-choice, human and civil rights. Yeah, I'm wondering why I went back to the church.) In any case, recovery from SB XLVI is the order of the week in our house. Wishing your house the best. Keep smiling!

Hey Saturday!

Saturday, February 04, 2012

Today is the big day! Adam and Chris are going to the winter ball together! I'm very excited for them. The Empire Youth Orchestra played at our local mall today and Josh made some excellent contacts for his percussion audition n June. Now we have to get his hand healed. Second day of my cycle and trying to rest a bit before the rest of my busy day continues. We will be going to Chris s house to take pictures of the happy couple before the dance. We will be moving on to his great friendEllen and Nell's house for more pix before heading to the dance. Joe and I are going to dinner while the boys are at the dance. I cheated with 2 valentines donuts for breakfast. Uggggg. Lunch was a very healthy salad. So doing better. Have a great day friends.

    Wow, I can't wait to hear about the dance, I bet Adam is really excited. Don't worry over the donuts, you have been a good girl otherwise. Have a nice night.

Hi Friday!

Friday, February 03, 2012

A great day! Breakfast at a sweet cafe a bit out of town which made it feel special. I had a yummy extremely fresh omletee with black olives, spinach and tomatoes. Yum. We did some shopping in the area. There were very nice streets to stroll down with hubby. We drove back and had an awesome lunch at one of my favorite restaurants with a gift card we need to use before it expired. How wonderful. My favorite paella. Omg! Pure heaven. I shared a goat cheese salad with Joe. I enjoyed all of the seafood and skipped most of the rice. So good but huge carb count. I enjoyed a lovely glass of wine. We did some more shopping and headed home to Josh who got an amazing report card. He got a 3.97 for his gpa! He rocks! Adam did well at his meet and his team won! He wasn't thrilled with his time but he is tough on himself. So tonight we are going to a friends. An A plus day like my awesome sons report card! Have a great day!
