Tue, 10 Jul 2012 11:38:51 EST Tears Of Happiness Does anyone else get extremely emotional when they see how far theyve come? I have been a blubbering idiot the majority of the night. Its a combo of many things. One being when I was with ex husband he always told me I was fat and ugly and would never find anyone to love me. For so long I believed him I believed he was right that would never find someone to truely love me because even tho my husband adores me I always felt like I wasnt good enough for him.

Well little did I know that they were talking behind my back. Funny thing is that they were at a resturant on base today for lunch and so was my husband. *hes there for schooling* anyways they started talking crap about me not knowing that he was sitting in the booth directly behind them. They went on and on and finally he had enough. He stood up walked over to their table and said its not bad enough yall caused her to have...

So yesterday I started babysitting for my good friend Leann. She has a little girl thats almost 2.
