Good Sunday Sparkfam! Its a day of recovery for us as we had the trunk party for our son & the block club for 2 blocks down. If you have never been to a block club its where they close the block off & just bbq & the kids get to run the streets literally. My youngest son (who has the cast on his leg) was miserable & wanted to stay indoors playing his videos with friends but since I wanted the house in fairly good condition I told him no. I told him you should be happy with no school for right now & I don't understand why they need to be entertained 24/7? I mean, we took a rock & made a game of it, rock teacher...lol
So I cooked spaghetti, corn on the cob & marinated the chicken legs, thighs & wings. The food was excellent if I must say so myself. I guess you think I am being biased but everyone commented on the spaghetti. So that's how I know it was good. Maybe I should sell it in the freezer section with my sweet potato pie? LOL Anyway, my son got a few things as I made sure I bought him the basics & we will still need to shop in the next 2 weeks & I will also send him things monthly. I know I need to let him go & learn how to leave without the finer things we have to offer at home so he can miss us & know the sacrifices we made for him right? Nah, I would feel guilty. He has so many IOU's from family members & that's cool cause I know times are hard & tight & the change (money) is strange. The Lord will provide, I have every confidence in that.
So today, I didn't make it to service, I was invited to my nephew's evening program, so I will attend that. That will make him so happy since I wasn't around for him from years 0 to 4years due to family differences. He is so proud to have his Auntie around now. His older brother was drug around by me when he was younger from hither to thither. I didn't have my own son so he was my stand in son. He is now in his junior year at Howard University in Washington & we are all so proud of him. I tell I still feel like the girl who used to skip & skate up & down the street. lol But the celebrations also included my daughter & son's 5year wedding anniversary & my son in law's bday as well. So I wrote happy on the cake & we sang happy bday, anniversary, bday & trunk party to them all. lol
So today my workout will include yoga, weights & walking.
God bless Sparkfamily!!
