Looking Forward

What adventure lies ahead!

Never, never give up.

Hi there, Ronna. Thank you for commenting on my blog with all your kind words and wisdom too. With it now being March, my knee is better and better! Incredible actually and I'm so happy! Also I'm so happy because my husband wants to lose weight too and get more healthy, so it feels so much easier when we both want the same thing!! We're mainly going low carb, which makes alot of veggies to get eaten. We're going whole foods more too, so just plain good food, with not alot of creamy sauces, etc. I've missed you too! Happy March to you! Hugs to you too!

No more power outages, third day of relentless wind. I'm tired of it! And as chilly as the gusts might be, it's still nothing like Oregon with the wind whipping down out of Canada and frost on the ground, or dangerous-to-go-outside as it was when I was in Kansas in February. 60F! And I'm whining that I'm freezing! I've gone all soft here.

A move to a new part of Norway? Stressful I'm sure but also chalk full of opportunity as well as challenge. I've missed you too! I was thrilled to see your recipes online where you linked from your blog. I think you deserve the very best so it's awesome to see good things happening for you. I've always adored your attitude and sense of celebration.

My BF challenged me to run a half marathon with him when I said I could not imagine doing a half marathon. I accepted and we're signed up for a race put on by a local cartoonist we both enjoy, who is incidentally a long distance runner (http://www.beattheblerch.com). So that's on the docket for September and I think I better start training soon!

I quit my office job and moved in with my grandfather as a full-time caregiver just over a week ago. I've been divorced now for about 18 months, and after some romantic learning experiences, I'm very much in love with a wonderful guy and we plan to share our lives, including raising a family after I finish grad school. What else? Oh, I'm set to finally start my own Girl Scout USA troop next fall and even have a neighbor girl that wants to join already! In the meantime I'm cleaning out the house, taking care of my grandpa, and preparing to take the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) General Test so I can apply to teaching programs this winter. I've never been so happy.

I was also pretty surprised to note I'd put on two pant sizes while I wasn't paying attention! So I'm back on here :) How have you been?!

What a sweetheart you are! My life has changed drastically in the last year and things are finally evening out and looking bright again :) I am Sparking again now with a deadline motivator to run my first half-marathon in Seattle this September. I can't wait to share your blog with my grandfather! He's going to love it as much as I do!
