HI Sparkies!

Monday, September 17, 2012

Monday Monday...Life is getting settled with the fall schedule. Food has been very good. I feel so much more like me. The house is getting its fall cleaning...hasn't been done in 2 years.... I put out my favorite fall decorations...I love my scarecrow on the front porch. :) I've started hearing the usual woes of working friends..."sooooo are you lonely without the kids home? What could you possibly be doing with yourself?" Yup....For 2 Septembers being in the depression I was in I just fell farther and farther inside myself. Not this year! I told them I'm getting into projects and doing some fall cleaning :) which I am....They look lost. Good...If these friends are to stay friends they have to be supportive of me. Right? Right! So I'm so happy that I'm here. Thank God for my sparkies who have helped me through all of this transitioning in my life. I feel like a new woman! Stronger. Smarter. Yay!

Good morning Sparkies!

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

What a wonderful mini vaca!!! Three nights away was just what the dr. ordered . I think Indiana have the nicest people. They are so friendly and giving. Honestly! Love them! The weather was perfect to watch golf and be pampered :). I went to my RPM spin class yesterday. Wow! Tough but great. Sooo effective. I"m still feeling it. Food has been amazing. Even for being away. Food yesterday...a protein shake after workout. Grilled chicken salad for lunch. Greek yogurt for snack. Ground turkey over broccoli and cheddar cheese with chopped tomatoes and onions. Yum! I made an amazing omlette this morning with leftover ground turkey, spinach, olives, tomatoes with onions and same low fat cheddar. Yum! I will give myself about a half hour and that get going on my day. I went to see my therapist yesterday. I feel like I'm getting ready to take a little hiatus from these sessions..yes! I'm feeling really good. Like my old self. Yay!!!! I hope my Sparkies are having a great day!

    Sounds great about the little holiday you took. I'm glad you had a good time.

We don't have spin classes here. I would love to try something like that. Maybe, I should take out the bike, waaay in the back of the garage...! emoticon

Welcome Back....

Thursday, September 06, 2012

Think Welcome Back Carter :)....Back to school around here. Uggggg....Never like this day. I love my boys around. No worries though. I think staying on top of my vitamins and getting my exercise is good for me. I'm transitionally well with them going back. Both my boys are in the high school this year! Wow! I can't believe it! They are amazing and awesome! If I do say so myself! :) Josh had his first football game yesterday. He got some good play time in and didn't get hurt...score!!! Joe and I are headed to Indianapolis tomorrow for the BMW golf championship tomorrow. Maybe you will see me on tv :)...A very casual trip. I'm thankful for that :). Hope all my sparkies are well!

    It's such an adjustment to get back into the school routine of things. Especially for me, since I now have one staying home. (Blog).

Anyways, have a good weekend. There is no way I'll see you on t.v. Just because I can't stand golf! emoticon

Hi Tuesday...

Tuesday, September 04, 2012

Omg 2 days until my boys are in the high school!!!!! Ugggg...Today we spent over 2 hundred dollars on groceries and later ....back to school supplies...:( How many languages can we say...Money out the window? Not to mention the hundreds spent on clothes and backpacks last weekend....Wow!!! Soooo this morning I went to my first spin class in 2 years! I was a bit intimidated but it rocked! I love this instructor. She is awesome. I did hold back a bit because I wasn't sure if I really brought it that I would be spent half way through class. Great class!!! Yay! My body is soooo feeling it. :) So very busy time here. Yesterday was sooo relaxed. I really couldn't stand it. Pretty boring actually. I told Joe we could do whatever he wanted since it was his day off. So he wanted to chill. That was fine but today is not boring...ugggg. One step at a time. Hope my sparks had a great holiday!

    Yes, one step at a time. You can do it. You will always spend more money than you plan for your kids. Even after they graduate from college. lol.

    As a teacher, we do appreciate the parents who get their kids all ready for school - you'd be surprised how many families have problems with that, not only financially but just not caring - so thank you!

    Hang in there with school stuff, before you know it there will be no more school clothes and things to get for the boys. I bet you can't wait to get back to your next class to move again, right?

let's blog

Saturday, September 01, 2012

Thanks to my sparkies for your support in my last blog. Things are better today. I've noticed that after a big argument with Joe in the past two years. I grow from them. I become more of an adult...I know I'm 42. I can't really explain it. I find out more about myself. I grow. So thats good. So this to shall pass as they say. Food is still great. I'm feeling more organized and have more energy. I think it's the vitamins. I have to take them like they are perscribed medication from a doctor. If I go more than a few days I feel it. Dr. Oz recommended these suppliments a while ago and am I glad I listened. I just have to be diligent with them. I'm not great with medications but I've gotten better with routine as I've gotten older. I'm going to hit the gym today. I went to my zumba class yesterday and a Zumba friend and I taught a song because the instructor hurt her ankle....uggg...we did great and I really enjoyed co teaching, I talked to her about doing this together in an entire class. She thought that was great! So we will talk more about this. :) So life is better. Thanks again!

    I think it's so admirable to grow as adults. We should never stop learning and adapting.

    Glad things are better! And from what I'm reading, marriages MUST have conflict or else intimacy is lost...Jeff and my avoidance of conflict left everything unresolved...if we had talked about issues instead of sweeping them under the rug, things would have been much better, I think...

SO, all that to say, I'm glad you and Joe are bringing things up and seeking solutions. And...inner growth comes many times from what we see in others then apply to ourselves, as well.
