Thurs~ Lesson learned

Today is Thursday ~ and we were going to head up to campus, but unfortunately, Jan’s daughter Nora is sick. 😦 We don’t have a bus pass or bikes yet, so we’re staying in our apartment and working from home today. It’s a beautiful & sunny day outside. A bit windy~ and “chilly” from a Texan perspective. It is suppose to reach about 17degrees C today… or about 66 F (I think…) but with the wind it feels cooler. Yesterday was only about 50 degrees, so today feels a lot nicer. 

Being in Norway has made me realize how over indulgent we are as Americans. Steve and I expected that this would happen, but we are hungry often as we try to “keep up with the jones'” or rather, “eat less with the Norwegians” 🙂 Americans eat so often, and so much. We over indulge and consume way more than our bodies truly need. I think that this is our first “lesson learned” from the Norwegian culture. Steve and I are working on embracing that value while we’re here.

  1. Hey guys…love the pics. Keep them coming. Especially the ones where Steve is curled up in the most uncomfortable looking position on the world smallest furniture. I know the Nords don’t like food…but i guess they don’t like plush couches either.

      Ha! I know right 🙂 Steve was so tired that night that it didn’t really matter how uncomfortable he was! Glad you’re enjoying the blog! We miss y’all!
