Today is my 100th post day since I started the "Carlson Custodians” blog, back in December of 2011. I first named my blog "Carlson Clan" because GW wants to go to Scotland someday and I have Scottish ancestors. My favorite part about the Provo 4th of July parade are the bag pipes! But I liked the sound of Custodians better, so thus the change.
To celebrate this historical event I’ve decided to begin another post on, "Journey to the Gym”. GW bought a 12 month family pass to the Provo Rec. Center, and it has made this summer so far really fun. The pass was a little on the expensive side, but, since we are not taking a vacation trip, we thought it was a good splurge. I know last year I journeyed to a different gym and almost ruined my achilles heel by running too hard on the tread mill. After a six month membership I could hardly walk bare foot because my heels hurt so bad. It took me almost three months to recover and I didn’t think I would ever be back to a gym again.
Thanks to my neighbor, who mentioned to me at work one day that her husband was helping other women in our neighborhood with weights, exercise, and a diet program. Well, I decided to join the ranks. I started on May 1, 2013. Yes that was almost two months ago. It has taken me this long to try and get over the addictions I have acquired in the last fifty-four years! My trainer suggested that I stay on low carbs and only have a moderate treat once a week. Well I found out I couldn’t even do that so two weeks ago I went to a 12 step addiction program sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The spirit was so strong in the meeting that I actually felt a little touch of hope.
So, I will continue to report my progress and hopefully accomplish the goals I have set for the summer of 2013!
Happy One Hundred, Opa!!

Helloooooooo Family!!!!!!!I just love all ya'lls guts! I loved reading Julie's Sacrament Talk and hearing about how Fathers Day/ Mom and Dad's Anniversary went! Love it! We're doing emails, next to me Sister Atkinson seems to be laughing and crying at the same time reading things from her family. She hasn't had a P-day in a week and a half and has only been out a couple of days. I love her guts! She's an amazing missionary.

Hey Ya'll!Hope you all had a great time at girls camp! It has been an interesting week.
Second of all, the love bugs are gone, but every other kind of bug is now present. We don't know if they're cockroaches or not, but these brown bugs keep trying to get through our door at night. I don't think there are very many mosquitoes yet, but they are on the rise as well. Sister Major got a tick the other day. Apparently ticks are big in Gainesville.
Monday night was Transfer Conference Call! That night we had just finished teaching M about the Plan of Salvation when at 9pm, we called in. We listened to it on the car ride back. Sister Pettingill is 2nd half training and is going to the Ocala 1st ward, so she'll still be in our zone! Elder Jenkins is going to St Augustine, and Sister Major is going to Atlantic Beach. I'm kind of sad. And nervous. Cause I'm gonna train... There's gonna be a big worldwide missionary announcement for anyone who wants to watch on the 23rd. Sometime in the evening or something. Some big changes!
