I want to thank those of you who have lent me your support these past few days, you don’t know how much it was NEEDED and appreciated. Xoxoxoxoxo a million times over!

2012 started on such a good foot, but it’s been full of stress, changes and worry these past few months. Job transitions, worry about finances and confusion & concern for my son. I know I am a strong person, and I will get past everything, but sometimes I feel so anxious that my chest is tight and I am holding my breath waiting for the next blow. The one thing that sustains me is my faith in God and knowing He is there. I know we will get past these worries, and that everything will be fine in the end. Despite some of the chaos we’ve had lately, we are TRULY blessed. We both have jobs, we have a great family and our son is happy and healthy! I refuse to wallow in sadness or self-pity. There is no reason for it and it gets us nowhere.

Dylan’s Baptism is this Sunday, can’t believe the day is almost here! I don’t have to tell you how excited I am for it! My pastor came by our house last night to discuss the Baptism, have us fill out forms, and talked to us about the true meaning of Baptism. She read bible verses to us, and even told us she would officiate if we ever choose to get married. She came at 8pm and stayed until 10:30! I am so grateful to have found a church that accepts us and welcomes us even though we are not a “traditional family” being we are two moms. She actually cares about us and our son. I never thought I would find that. I will definitely share pictures of the Baptism here! I am having a photographer come to take pics of the ceremony, and won’t get the CD until a few days later, but I will share those as well.

My weight has been at a standstill, and I have maintained it. I am actually happy about that right now. I’m not resorting to binging or anything self-destructive. I will get my inner “rockstar” back in action.

I hope you all have a great 4th of July! We plan on having a pot luck picnic in the park with some family. Be safe and enjoy yourselves!
