Celebrate!

This week Sunday scribblings asks us...
what have we got to Celebrate?
ELEVEN WEEKS that my husband isn't smoking!! WOooo Hoooo! He has tried to quit so often, once being successful for SIX whole years! THIS time, I just know he is going to beat them for good! We are also celebrating that he lost 5.4 lbs our first week back at Weight watchers and I lost 2.4 (reason to celebrate with a cupcake maybe or maybe...those desirable doritos!)
This week I am also celebrating that my stomach is feeling much better! My bloated condition has lessened enough for me to finally ditch the sweat pants and put my clothes back on! I am still waiting to hear from the gastro doctor to make sure my abdominal sonogram results were as good as my pelvic sono results. Based on how I am feeling, I am confident that the doc will give me good news! My genius friend Sally most likely solved my belly mystery! She thinks the bloating must have been caused by the iron supplement my doctor told me I needed to take due to my blood test showing I am anemic. The gastro doc. thought that her assumption could very well be what what causing all my symptoms.
If all these reasons aren't enough for us to have a party over here...
Check out my Crazy son....


Even though I don't really understand the attraction to his bizarre style of experimental music, apparently there are many who do. He and his band mates are getting a lot of attention due to their latest performance in Manhattan and in anticipation of opening for Sonic youth in their next show. Sonic youth! I even remember who they are and am impressed by this development! They are playing at the No fun fest in Brooklyn on May 16th.
My son is here with his chains that he slams against sheet metal in this particular song! WOW! That's-a My boy! CeLeBrAtE!!

Your son looks quite with it! Mine plays the sax but I don't think he's into anything experimental!

Hi Lucy!

Congrats to your hubby on the quitting smoking! Ya know.. my hubby didn't smoke all his life. Until he was 47-ish and we were dating and I was in full-blown menopause. Poor guy.

Congrats on the weight loss to both of you. I've thought many times of trying WW. Good to hear it's working for ya'll.

It was iron pills huh? Not bean soup???

Yeah I mop. But I never washing the clothing on stuffed animals..

Take care.

Your friend,
Bah bah bah bah bah bah-rah Ann.

In my youth I was in a rock band - no one understood me either :-)
I think things have improved ...

So good to see so many reasons to celebrate. Well done on your WeightWatchers success... a good start is half the battle! And to your husband on getting clean of the smokes. I'm 9 years off cigarettes, and celebrate every day of those 9 years!

Celebrations indeed for you, your husband and your son! And it's typical of your sweet generosity that you didn't think only of yourself.

Lots of things to celebrate! I'm so happy about the not smoking thing! And I'm anxiously awaiting your (good) test results.

I went to the doctor with a podgy tummy and he told me I was eating too much chocolate and washing it down with too much wine. I demanded a second opinion but I'm still waiting.

congrats. no cupcake too many points. i had to have an I.V. of iron because I cannot tolerate iron supplements. glad you are feeling better.

Lots of things to celebrate in here! I love the pictures of your son!

I hope your husband sticks to it - mine gave up smoking for three years once and then said those fateful words; 'I fancy a cigarette .. I'll just have one ... '

I wish he'd quit again!!

Lucy said...

Your life is so full! It is always fun to read your blog.

My son is a huge fan of Sonic Youth, and he is 20! I must get him to listen to some of your son's band.

Sometimes the bloating can be very simple, such as fibroid tumours, benign, and extrememly common, although not pleasant!

Wishing you more fun and good health!!
