It seems I post most of my thoughts on Facebook these days.  I seldom am near the computer long enough to write on the blog. Elder Sanford has been the main focus of the blog these almost past 2 years.  Colby entered the mission field on October 13, 2010 and he'll be released on November 6, 2012.  A lot has happened in these years!

I just wanted to do a little update on me...I have drafts started of things I'd like to say.  It's a little scarey putting my thoughts out in the open.

I have what will be a long entry about my wonderful Father.  He passed away almost a month ago. Emotion wells-up in my throat making me uncomfortable and tears escape my ducts.  I'm not quite ready to finish that entry.

So, I'll move on to something a little less painful.  I've been trying to lose weight. It's a day to day process, but I have a program that really isn't too difficult to follow and I'm seeing results.  It's nice to have people notice and comment. I think that most people could do this on their own.  I need help to stick to a plan, and going through the company I do, I DO have the boundaries set in place that I need to help me. The program is "Take Shape for Life" fueled by Medifast.  It's working, and I am feeling more healthy overall.  I still am tired a lot, but honestly it's because I stay up too late to comfortably arise at 5 a.m. daily.  It's something I'm working on. I appreciate the encouragement of my family, especially Jeff.  They have all been wonderfully cheering me on!

Have a happy Saturday!!!   More later.

I've been trying to compose a blog entry about Daddy.  It's hard!  To write down he's no longer with us is awful! It feels like a sick twisted joke.  I know we'll be together again.  But, it's just like with my sister Jill.... When I want to pick up the phone to call and talk---- I can't.  It stinks!!!
