Professional production company here we come....:)

Thursday, October 04, 2012

Yay!!! Adam made the cast of Rent!!!! It's a local theater company but the first professional production company he has worked with! It is a big deal at this age in this area! Yay! Mom gushing over here emoticon ...He is in the esnsemble. That is great for him. Many friends from his school are in it as well. That should be fun and he will learn soooo much from the director at this level. He is starting with an amazing vocal coach who has many contacts in NYC! Her two sons are on broadway right now!!!! Yup! emoticon Gush Gush Gush! psyched. Food has been great and the medicine seems to be working on my tummy. I danced this morning. OH! I'm going to get licensed in Zumba Gold October 28th! Yay!

Hello Friday

Friday, September 28, 2012

Hi Sparkies! Hope all is well. Glad it's Friday but bummed that Joe is working. His boss needed Joe to switch his day off. He did have yesterday off so that was nice. We enjoyed a very leisurely day. Nice. I went to the gastroentorologist Tuesday. I found out I have IBS. Sounds about right. They are trying me on a medicine to see if everything will regulate with it. We will see. It seems to help my stomache but I tried Align this summer and 6 weeks later it stopped working. I'll go back in two months and we will see if it is still working. It's good to have at least a name for the issues. Adding fiber to my diet kills me. Really upsets my system. I used to take Benefiber and it worked well but then they took it off the market and everything else I tried really hurt my body. So we will try the medicine. I went to visit a friend today who had moved away a couple years ago. She seems well but her mom and I have not been well in a while. The visit was at her moms and I wasn't looking forward to going there. She proved to me at that vist that I don't want to be around her at all anymore. Very passive aggressive and rude. Soooo future visits will be at my house or out for a meal. I've learned that it is not worth my time to invest energy with a person who doesn't deserve or really want it. So that is my day. The weather is very dreary and will be for at least through the weekend. Oh well. We have been blessed with gorgeous weather for weeks. Time to even it up. I did alot of shopping recently with some birthday money. A new fall jacket for Josh's football games, 2 pairs of jeans, new black loafers and 3 tops. I've been cleaning out my closet and need some new basics. I'm very happy with my purchases. I was really disappointed with my weight at the dr.s appt. He did bloodwork to check for a thyroid problem. I just don't understand the gain with how great I've been with food and exercise. Oh! I registered for training in Zumba Gold!!!! I'll be headed to Massachusetts in October! Yay! I'll keep you updated. Good busy weekend coming up. Have a great weekend!

    You're so right about not being around someone unpleasant. I wouldn't want to spend my time with someone like that either.

I didn't know Benefibre was taken of the market. I used to take that too. What about PGX? It's a fibre as well and I didn't mind it. You can find it in the pharmacies and health stores.

Nice to be able to go shopping and getting something new. When things settle down here, I would very much enjoy the opportunity myself.

Have a good week, Snookums. I'm sure you need it.

    I hope things work out better with the doctor and the meds. It sounds like if your friend really want to see you, her mother will take a temporary sideline. Whoohoo with going Zumba Gold! You can do it!

So its Monday...

Monday, September 24, 2012

I don't always hate Monday but today I'm not loving it. NO particular reason really. Trying not to let the day get the better of me. So I blog. I had 2 days of Zumba fundraisers. Friday for the American Cancer Society and Saturday for the Boys and Girls Clubs. Alot of dancing. My foot hasn't been very happy since then. I'm going to be good for it for a bit. Update on Adams audition.... he may still have a lead! Not just a part or no part but a lead!!!! :) I'll know more by Wenesday. I'll keep you updated! I'm feeling bloated and fat today. I know. It seems ridiculous. Oh well. Even with all of the workouts and healthy eating. Being in my 40's is not easy. It's just not. One day at a time.

    Sometimes Zumba can be hard on the joints, I suggest some yoga or pilates to stretch out all those muscles you are building.

    I hope your Monday improves greatly. Take care of that foot of yours so you can keep on dancing. I will keep my fingers and toes crossed for Adam so he can get the lead. You are still rocking your 40's big time, you have so much going for you now.

My star was burned last night...

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

Ugggggg...poor Adam. He found out the day before yesterday that there was a very important audition for a theater company he has been wanting to perform with for a long time. Very last minute though to prepare. He found a song to use but used it only because it was the only song we had sheet music for in the house and he had to have the sheet music for the audition. He had never seen this song before but practiced it all night and yesterday. He had the audition last night and was very intimidated. I could tell. He forgot the words two times. Ugggg... No call back call last night. He is so bummed. I feel so bad. He has been on such a high with theater for 2 years. A lead resulted in each audition. What a let down. So a tough night. I needed to blog it out. Glad I have you to turn to. Food still great!!!! Exercise still great! I went to a Zumba class Monday night that I haven't hit since June. The women all were saying how I look like I've lost a lot of weight! Yay! Score! :) I'm meeting a good friend for lunch. That will be nice. I'm heading to a Zumba class tonight.

    Sorry for Adam's struggles. Proud of you that despite secondhand stress you are eating and exercising well. Good for you! That's setting priorities. -Marsha

    Hopefully, he will learn from this experience... stumbling on one audition doesn't mean you stop chasing your dream... and he will be even stronger for the next one!

    I am glad you are doing well. Hugs for Adam, it is too bad he didn't have more time to prepare, i know he could have rocked that audition. He is still great no matter what.

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!
