Carol's Journey

"I'm 60 years old and don't want to spend the rest of my life overweight & tired! So...I am on a quest to drop some pounds and gain some energy." That is how I introduced myself 3 1/2 years ago. Since then I have been through numerous ups & downs, successes & failures. I have learned that perfect consistency is a pipe dream. When I fall (and I will) I just need to pick myself up and keep going. So, I'm making yet another new start. I won't look for perfection in myself, but neither ...

Thanks for your message - I contacted Son's of Norway and apparently I still have a record of membership. All I have to do is pay dues! They have an online class. But she also recommended the Norwegian Lutheran Memorial Church for classes. They had one start this week but I'm not ready to take that long drive right now - another one starts in September that I may consider. I also signed up for Norwegian 101 - word a day email. It's amazing how much I actually remember.

We also learned a Norwegian Christmas song that I have the words for somewhere around here. And we always prayed a Norwegian prayer that I can still recite all the way through.

I guess it's better late than never!

Thank you for the Spark Goodie - I am so ready to get my hands in the dirt! Unfortunately they are predicting snow for tomorrow night - we'll see!

It really has been a pretty easy winter this year and I am so happy to be able to sit outside and read!
