Well, I just got back from my first interview with a potential host family. I had to drive to Sun Praire, but the family seems very nice. The couple both served missions in Germany, and the children are spoken to in German. They want to host a student from Germany. It was exciting to meet them and to help facilitate this process. I think the family and the student will work well together.

Well, so far I have been enjoying my time spent at the gym. I really don't do much in the free time I do have, so using it in a more productive manner is very gratifying. All I know is that I want to continue developing this new lifestyle. I've been on enough diets and fads to know that those don't work; what I need is a lifestyle change. Thus, over the past two years I have been doing exactly that. It is extremely slow, but the changes I'm making are permanent, and I am proud of that. I want to be a good example for any children I may have, because I want my family to be healthy, active, and happy.

Well, there isn't much to say today. My life is pretty boring, in all honesty. Well, there is onething. It is now illegal for me to drive my car. I got a parking ticket on 12/30 of last year, which I paid on-line. They then sent me a letter telling me I still owed $10, so I paid that. Then I got a letter on Friday (and I didn't get home until 6:30) telling me that since I hadn't paid my citation, my vehicle registration is now suspended. Of course no one was in at the office and they don't work on Saturdays. I also found out that it takes 10 days to get my registration re-instated. You can imagine how upset I was. Why should I have to pay for someone else's mistake? Because that's life, that's why. *sigh*. I'm still driving, I have no other choice, but I wrote down the THREE confirmation numbers I have for paying this bill three times to carry with me in case I get pulled over. But, I have to watch my speed, and speaking of which, I have got to get my speedometer fixed. I keep forgetting it is 6 mph off.
