I have a new adventure in my life. I am going to be teaching a Weight Watchers class at SUU up in Cedar City, Utah. I will be driving over the famous Black Ridge once a week for a while traveling about 50 miles each way from my home. It is called an At Work meeting and will be done right on the campus. An interesting thing about this. I went to SUU after I graduated from high school. I moved down there with my girlfriend Pauline. We jumped into college life and had a lot of fun. I was a poor college student so I had to work. I began working on campus in the food services. I chased my hubby to the end of town and back several times until I finally convinced him we should get married. (He must be glad I did because we just celebrated our 43 year anniversary) When we were first married we lived in northern Utah and I though little of my SUU days. We then moved to St. George in 1984.
Fast forward 21 years and once again I was a student attending SUU. This time my friend Terri and I were driving the black ridge to finish our second year of nursing school. A Dixie College/SUU partnership program with Weber State University. We drove every day and became pretty skilled at driving in the "Nurse mobile!" ( a little old white Volkswagen beetle) Terri use to say that if a big enough gust of wind hit us we would be tumbling down the mountain like an empty tin can..
Now 24 years later I am once again going up the ridge. I am excited. I will meet many new people who share my common goal of healthy living. The part about this new adventure that surprised me is I will be holding the meeting in the exact building and in the exact room that I worked in so many years ago. What are the odds of that? To me it is pretty amazing.
