Happy New Year!!!

So what really comes with a New Year? To me it's only really one thing. Hope. Hope for something better. Hope to improve. Hope to be able to exercise more, drink less, stop smoking, be a better father/mother/daughter/son and so on.
I like New Year. It gives you a clean slate to start something better. I know, I know.. you don't need New Year to start something good but I tellya... it sure helps :-)

So the clean slate of the Gustafson family was to book a ski trip next weekend. Change of scenery sounded good to all of us. We had such a blast last year when we went so we decided that we'll do it again this year. Last year when we were away it was -30C/-22F so the skiing time was max 90 minutes before your toes and fingers started to loose feeling. Hard to believe I still thought it was fun...This year we are going a little further up north to a bigger resort and the forecast is just below freezing so we should be golden! Just hope I stay upright so I don't mess up the start of the season.. not to worry.. long time until it starts anyway ;-).

Bought cross country skis the other day and tried them out. Turns out having a 20 year break makes you kinda bad... And the skis now are SO NARROW! How are they expecting you to stay upright on them? Well, I'm going out on a long ride tomorrow around the golf course and hopefully that will improve my form.

Wish me luck please

  3. Haha! I didn't say I was going to do all them things! I don't smoke but I think it's the #1 thing people try to do after New Year. If you think about it, I'm not going to try to be a better father/mother or brother either ;-).

    Och Majsan, skidorna nu kan inte vara mycket bredare än 2 fingrar..
