Ok so I am trying to lose some weight. Since fathers day I have been able to lose a good chunk of it. I just added a gadget here that is linked to my livestrong.com page that will let you know how much I have lost so far.
Well I went out to the Great Salt Lake and took a lot of pictures at sunset on Saturday. It was interesting to walk around on the soft sand and almost get stuck in the mud a couple of times. I had some really interesting pictures of reflections of wood sticking up out of the lake and things like that. Just after sunset the GIANT Mutant mosquitoes came out of hiding and tried to Carey me away to their leader to have my blood drained. I managed to free myself from their grasp and killed about 500 of them on my sprint back to my car. These are the worst mosquito bites that I have had in a long time. They have been getting worse not better. This morning they seem to be doing a bit better though. When I got home and downloaded the files to the computer I was surprised at how fast my OLD computer was able to transfer them to the hard drive. That is when I realized that somehow my camera settings had been changes and I took about 80 pictures on 1MP setting instead of at full resolution. I will go back but I think that I will wait until the snow flies instead of the mosquitoes.
Well it's been a whiule since I posted anything to my blog. Well for all of you that may not know I am still unemployed and looking for a job. Melissa is doing well and the kids are as well. Logan has started to walk and is still in the phase where he holds his hands up to keep his balance while he is upright. We are enjoying our transition to Tooele and the boys especially like the pool at our condos.
Well Melissa took Brock to see the doctor today because he has been acting like he didn't feel well at all. He has been laying on the couch and has had a fever. Anyway he has pink eye, strep throat, and a double ear infection. He will be staying home from school and everything for a while until he isn't contagious any more. I know he isn't going to be happy when he doesn't get to go to Granny's house this weekend but we don't want to spread it to the cousins. Just an update on how he is doing.
Well I have been thinking about our son Brock a lot during the holiday season. Sometimes it just makes me sad when all of the other children are getting excited and running around anticipating the year end holidays and all that comes along with them, especially Christmas. Christmas has always been my favorite holiday because of the message of hope that comes from our Savior's birth. Brock just gets overwhelmed with the noise and emotions of it all. Both Melissa and my families are great to try to help Brock to have a good time and they understand when Melissa or I just have to go into another room with Brock to help him calm down. I just wish that he could communicate his feelings with us and that we could help him to enjoy birthdays and holidays and know that Jesus loves him. I just hope he knows that there are so many people here that do.
