Heavy

I am having a really emotional day.  I took my son to his first dental repair visit today.  It was very stressful for both of us, and I just wanted to bring him home and cuddle/comfort him afterwards, but I had to bring him to school.  I'm sure he is fine, but the whole experience made me feel like a horrible parent for exposing him to it (read my other blog, Raising Autism for details).  Then, when I did get him to school, the staff in the office was just as cold as his dentist had been, and I just wanted to scream.  Or self-comfort.  Or sleep off the bad vibe.  I did none of the above.  I made myself my usual breakfast and ate it while watching The View.  It just seems like this family has been going through our little health hiccups lately, and I am growing exhausted from trying to hold things together.  I totally understand how stay-at-home moms tell you raising a family is a full time job.  I am way more stressed out just handling the family than I was when I was working. 
Since I was already all emotional, and not in a good place, I decided to watch A&E's new show "Heavy" on-line.  WOW!  That show is AWESOME!!!  I thought biggest loser was inspiring, but they've got nothing on this show.  I couldn't take my eyes off it, it was so fascinating to me.  I was really pulling for them to stick with it and lose the weight, and found it really uplifting to see the mental transformation in progress.  What an awesome, inspirational show!   I hope it does well in ratings so that they continue it.  I am definitely a fan.
Being that I am in a pretty low place today, I am not going to drone on and on.  Hope everyone is having a super successful day and loving every minute of it!

  1. I watched Heavy the other night, too. I've always been a fan of Intervention (they make this show, too)...it was great. The Biggest Loser is a competition for $; this was just real people slugging it out to get their lives back.
