Day 1 of the Sugar Detox complete

I have made it a full 24 hours without sugar, carbs, and basically anything I hold dear.  I feel pretty pathetic because I am already starving!!!  I haven't smiled in the last few hours and am pretty sure this is the worst thing ever!
On the other side I really need this, and seeing how hard it is for me right off the bat is just proving how badly I needed to do it.  I cannot believe how many foods have sugar in them and how often I ate them.  It is a little bit scary.
I am currently wondering if life is worth it without sugar...
Im also loathing other people just because of what they eat...thats not good...
I really want a piece of chocolate and it doesn't help that I am extremely aware of where every piece of chocolate is in this house.  I wish I could get rid of it all but I am not the only one living here and I don't think its fair to force this on others.  I would be super ticked off if someone did that to me.
Anyway to sum it up, Im starving, grumpy, and want a piece of chocolate!

Hoping this gets better soon.

2013 Has Come to an End and The Nelsons Press On!

Blogging has taken a back seat the last few months.  We have kind of been in a limbo state as Jason has taken a new job in Utah County and are working on selling our home in Logan.  Its usually harder for me to blog when things are crazier in life rather than when it's smooth sailing.  But because this blog is our family history it's important to write about whats going on, the good, the bad, and the ugly!
This post will take form through an interview with Jason...

So Jason what is your new job and are you loving it as much as hoped?

Jason: I work at Qualtrics selling one of our products called 360.  It is a software based technology that allows for companies to streamline their internal processes.  and Yes I am loving it.

What is the best part of living in your in laws basement?

Jason:....(long pause).  Just the opportunity to have Liam spend a lot more with his grandparents than normal.

What is the worst part?

Jason: There is a lack of privacy.  Hard to have any quiet time in the house.

What is the status of our Logan home?

Jason:  It is currently under contract and in the process of being sold.  We are crossing our fingers that everything works out and we will be moved out in January.

Where are you hoping to end up after the home sells?

Jason:  Somewhere out of the basement.  We have a few areas we like but not exactly sure where we want to start looking.  We are very excited to start the process!

How awesome is your wife on a scale of 1-10?

Jason: You can't scale Janae on her level of awesomeness.

Is that a cop out?

Jason: No!  its a better answer than 11.

How do you like living in Utah Valley compared to Cache Valley?

Jason:  They are both beautiful areas and I have appreciated the new scenery.  It's definitely lacking Aggie fans which has been an interesting adjustment.  We have definitely enjoyed having more activities and places to go with Liam especially in the cold months.

How was Christmas?

Jason: Christmas for me was the best one I  have ever had so far.  It was especially humbling to watch Liam and see how excited he got on Christmas morning!  There were other aspects of service and keeping the true meaning of Christmas close to our hearts that made it very special.

Well Jason has been drug off by Liam so I guess our interview has come to an end.

We are so incredibly grateful for all our blessings and love and support from family.  Although our move from Logan was hard we know it was the right decision.  Cache Valley will always fill a large part of our hearts since that is where we wen't to school, met each other, bought a home, and brought our beautiful baby boy into the world.  They are such irreplaceable memories that will always tie us to Logan.  We sincerely miss our friends there and know we will always be close to them.  Aggies for Life!
