All is well.

"If you don't risk anything, you risk more." - Erica Jong

Since Cody and I have moved forward with so many changes, this quote makes me feel a lot better. I have done things that I said I would never do, given up things that mean a lot to me, and I don't even get the satisfaction of knowing how it is all going to turn out.

I truly think though that the risk is going to be well worth it. Whether we try new things or not, the time will pass. I don't want to look back and think, 'what if?' I have never seen anyone be worse off for having education or going after worthy dreams. There are days that I think about Cody and I both in school, eventually having a baby, and living off of the money from jobs that we don't have yet, and I wonder if I am equipped for this, but the alternative is much much worse...not trying. I already know I can't settle for less than our current efforts. I know that Heavenly Father is aware of us, and I am certain that he will help us. He already has!!! P.S. Cody got on the Fall Winter track at BYU-Idaho so he officially is starting in January and will hopefully be able to get on fast track (going to school all three semesters a year) quickly. More great news...many of his credits from CSN transfer.

Lately my mind has been on: making money, saving money, moving to Idaho, and how to pass the GRE.

Making money: This process is taking longer than I had imagined in my mind.

Saving money: I have decided that if we didn't eat or travel this would be a lot easier to do.

Moving to Idaho: I am ready.

How to pass the GRE: I don't know. Please don't make me study anymore!

I hope everyone is doing well. HAVE A GREAT DAY!


  1. Lucy, I love this post. I think everyone goes through this at least once in their lives, and for the lucky ones many more times than that! I love the confidence and I share your fears but am motivated and inspired by your willingness to take risks. Sometimes when you feel as if the horse is running away with you, you have to pull harder on the reins and make it do what you want instead of just going along for the ride. (As fun as it is to be on a horse that is running away with you.)I see you doing that and I'm proud of your courage and the skill and knowledge you have to make it happen.

  2. Nice blog! I like your writing way. I'm doing practice GRE here: . I hope it's useful for GRE test takers.
