Shawn and I found out the other day that we are expecting Baby #5 edd 08/27/2013! I am happy and excited and so is he! We only told a few people that are close friends and no family other than my grandma yet. Yay! So far we have 3 girl names picked out and 2 boy names...Layla Grace, Abigail Christine, and Christianna Abigail for the girl. Asher Hilton and Caleb Hilton for the boy.

  I so wanted 4 children...but the LORD had other plans for me. Having infertility issues, I ended up having a hysterectomy when I was 34 and having no children. Well like I said God had other plans and I adopted a newborn baby boy in 2001 so that makes him 11. He is the joy of my life and so happy to be his mom. I wanted a girl but God gave me what I needed not what I wanted. My son is awesome and he is my only. May God bless you with your 5th child. Congratulations!!!! God is good.

Starting Over...Finally moved back to VA :)

Sunday, December 16, 2012

About 2 weeks ago, I moved back to my home state of VA. I moved in with my beloved Shawn and I have physical custody of the 4 kids. Their dad and I agreed that he is allowed to come and see them as much as he wants as long as it doesn't interfere with school, their extra curricular activities, or church. So far, things are working well!
The 2 older kids are back in school and they love being in a school where a uniform is not required. This past Friday, I got to go to school and eat breakfast with them and then they got to see Santa.
The kids and Shawn are getting along really well...He treats them just like he does Gabriel, never differentiating that they are his future step children, while Gabriel is his biological puts a smile on my face!
I have 2 Mommy dates lined up for this coming up week...1 with my friend, Lois, that lives about 30 minutes from me and 1 with my best friend, Sheree, who lives about an hour and a half away. Sheree wants me to take her to see Gloucester because she is looking to move and she is thinking that she wants to be near me and the kids. I am her little girls godmother.
I got my Christmas tree put up, though I am still searching for a few things that are missing :( But I am sure I will find them.
I have gotten the house unpacked for the most part...just need to get Chloe's room unpacked and the storage shed organized.
Shawn, the kids, and I went to a church down the street today and it was awesome! They have AWANAS which is the church youth program our old church in SC had so they can continue. I am excited!
Well, I better start unpacking Chloe's room!

    Awanas clubs are great for the kids and most churches have other adult teaching groups that meet at the same time. You'll do so much better on your SP program when your family is plugged into a healthy church. Congratulations on the move!

So, I'm dealing with the thing, this nasty, gross feeling, self loathing, not wanting to be around anyone, making excuses to not go out the house. I need to kick it...this evil, horrible thing called depression. I don't want to go on meds...I must kick this thing.
On top of feeling horrible, I saw on facebook earlier, where not too long ago, my ex-best friend and 1 of her friends called me fake, a whore, made jokes about constipation while my baby boy was in the hospital having 14 inches of his intestines removed. I had to remove people from my life about a week ago, people that I trusted because they were going back and giving these two girls information about me. I do not need this right now. I am finally moving in less than 2 weeks. I need to get better before I move.

    You have the right focus... you, your son, your new home, and your future together. Let go of the other stuff. Shake the dust off your feet and move into the next phase of life. May you be blessed with an awareness of gratitude and hope.

    Some people can be so cruel. These people are not friends. They are usually lonely, unhappy people that want everyone to feel the same way they do. Hold your head up high. You will be able to do it. Hope the move will help. Take care of yourself and your family. Your spark family is here for you.

    I'm sorry that you are going through all of this. You believe in God and He will bring you through it. I find it appalling that they would even think to make such jokes about a baby's health issue. Don't let them get you down. You are taking care of your family and doing your best to improve your life. Good for you!!

God Bless! emoticon

Punkin Patch Adventures with my Lil Baby Superheroes! PICS!

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

Baby Moose had a Dr's appointment Tuesday morning and he got an awesome report! He intestines and rectum are healing right on track and he gained 2lbs since last month! He's now 18lbs. His birthday is next month and my wish for him, as his very proud Mommy, is for him to be healthy by his 1st birthday!

After I drove back from Charleston, I decided to pick the older 2 up from school a little early and take them to the pumpkin patch. They didn't get to go last year because I was pregnant. I even had them all dress in their cute little halloween t-shirts!
When we got there, they immediately headed for the animals. Chloe got a little love nip from the pony they had but she still took a pic with it. The boys loved all the pumpkins and Baby Moose tried to eat one! They had a blast but the pumpkins were wayyyy out of my budget so the boys decided they wanted a little mini pumpkin since they were only $2 a piece and Chloe decided she wanted to go to Walmart and get a $4 pumpkin. The field pumpkins were $13 at the patch!

Busting my hiney to get this weight off!

Friday, September 28, 2012

After my walk last night, I went to Bi-Lo's and got a gallon of water. I absolutely HATE water...give me a sundrop or a Diet Dr. Pepper any day!
I came home and got a permanent marker and wrote on my gallon of water times that I should have each bit of it drank (I think thats the right word) by. I am keeping up with it today. I have already drank 1/2 a gallon today and I have not drank any Diet Dr. Pepper today.
For breakfast, I had fruit. I really wanted to get up early and have oatmeal but I woke up late so I grabbed fruit instead.
I also got some bananas to make "banana icecream" and celery, natural peanut butter, and raisins to make some "ants on a log" for my snacks!
I have Type 2 diabetes and I really should be watching what I eat but I have let that slip really bad. So far mine is just controlled with diet and exercise but I am thinking my falls may be associated with the diabetes. My boyfriend reminded me that I have fallen about 4 times in the last month.
I plan to live to be 100 so I guess I better start being healthy!
I'm planning on walking Monday through Friday and get this weight off, get my diabetes under control, and wear a size 18/20 by my birthday!

    Nice job drinking your water. It seems like it would be simple to do but I also struggle with drinking as much as I should. I have a water bottle that I keep close and full. Just seeing it there reminds me that I need it even though I am not thirsty.

    I definitely drank half :) I almost drank the whole gallon. Cutting out soda is giving me "caffeine headaches" so I have to figure out how to deal with that.

    LOVE ants on a log. I've had bad luck with celery lately though, it's been quite bitter for eating raw. I'm always hopeful that the next batch will be good... missing that snack!

A gallon of water is quite a bit - as long as you drink half of that you're doing well :)
