Hey everyone, sorry I've been MIA for so long. I've had a lot of stuff change in my life- for the better! Those of you who know me on Facebook already know a lot of the stuff, but for those of you who don't... I finally got a job. It's not the best, but it's something. It's money coming in to the house, I've lost weight and met a lot of great people. I even started dating a guy at work. Scary, right? I had no interest in dating anyone, and was totally happy being just friends, but God, he's amazing. On the 18th, he took me to see my favorite band as my gift for Valentine's Day. Now, he and I are busy planning a trip to Disneyland with my daughter for Halloween. My daughter loves him, my mom loves him, my friends who know him love him. He's really a great guy and I'm so thankful to have him in my life.
Those of you who know what I've been through the past few years know how tough a step this was for me to take. I always thought that the next guy I'd date would have to be super patient with me because of my past relationship, and he has. No matter how many times I screw up, or think I screw up, he's been nothing but supportive and encouraging. He's thoughtful and respectful and protective and (let's be real here) gorgeous. lol It's strange though (and a little frightening) to be treated this way. I spent years feeling like I didn't deserve it, and now, I literally don't know how to react. Most times, I just burst into tears. Like in January. He knew I was having a bad day, and he goes, "Here. Tickets to see AFI. Happy Early Birthday." I literally just sat there and cried for like 5 minutes.
Anyway, he's basically the reason I haven't been on here. When I have time off from work, I'm busy spending time with him and my daughter. I had plans to get so many wallpapers done (I swear, I haven't forgotten about your StormPilot, Taylor!), but this one of those wonderful times when real life has gotten in the way.
