Remember when I said, 'nifty' all the time?

I gotta learn that there's no catching up with blogs once I'm behind. I've just got to pick it up with the most recent thoughts. I think I get this from my parents: if I'm going to write, it better be good and heart-felt.

That reminds me of Body for Life. We're in week three, and I've lost five pounds, which doesn't mean muchunless I keep it up. The similarity is that when I eat unhealthy foods during the week, I've just got to pick it up and keep going. I can't dwell on it or let it bring me down. I've got to remember that my actions are not matching up with my goals, readjust, and move on.

There are three ladies at the gym every morning who are doing body for life, too. I was excited to meet them, two of them are in week two, and the other is in her second challenge. She lost 20 lbs! I can't wait for that to be me. If this program really works, then I know what everyone is getting for Christmas: a book.

We're adjusting to our new life. Our house is still beautiful. We can't close on it until some minor plumbing and electrical problems are solved. Just flickering lights and fluxuating water pressure.

We just bought some more Bum Genius cloth diapers from Kelly's Closet. I commented in the order that I was from Norway, and the daugter of
John Governale, and I got a response from a girl I went to high school with. It was neat.

We also bought some cloth swim diapers from a different online retailer. Our membership to the local Rec center includes the pool (with slides, splash park and lazy river), climbing wall, weight gym, indoor track and machines. We got swimming probably twice a week, and diapers were getting expensive. One Swimmi is the same price as a package of swim diapers. I think we've already made them worth it.

My birthday is this weekend! I keep forgetting. Dave keeps saying I'm gonna love my presents, but he already bought me a house and I don't really know what would top that. Maybe a piano.

I'm trying to get back into school to finish my degree, but there aren't many options. Berklee offers a BA all online, but it's abut $400 per credit, meaning $20,000 for the remaining classes I need, or 40,000 for a complete degree. You'd better hope for a high-paying job after graduation!

It has been suggested that I e-mail the dean of the college of music at USU to persuade him to offer music courses through the extension in Vernal. This dean is actually Craig Jessup, former conductor of the Tabernacle Choir, and I'm kind of scared out of my pants to e-mail him for fear that I'll be dismissed and miss my one chance to be on a first-name basis with him. I've already drafted two e-mails and Dave, one, but I need to get it out there soon or there won't be time to structure the course. Sigh. Wish me luck!

So, I will be 24, as many years as there are hours; then tomorrow is a new day! I'll be a new me and I hope you still like me. Until then, friends.

  1. I love these glimpses into your life and thoughts. I do get teary eyed. My life is so at the other end of the spectrum from yours, and I miss your end. Can't believe that I had anything to do with the beautiful, wise, caring, competent and so totally Sofie person that you are now. Can't wait to see what tomorrow will bring! I love you!
