Run Forest, Run!
My husband has always been an avid runner. He would run six miles like it was one. Not only does he enjoy it, he is great at it. He has amazing posture and breezes by. For the last few years he has not run as often as he would like because his knees were bothering him. While he was in Afghanistan, he started running daily again and worked himself back up. He is safe at his debriefing post and should leave next Wednesday!
On the home front, my dad had to stay an extra night at the hospital. I haven’t talked to them today, but we are all pulling (and praying!) for his release today. Turns out he was more distended and the surgeon was worried to send him home like that. I met the surgeon the other day and he is a terrific man. He seemed really genuine and nice. I ended up getting their dog, Madison for the evening. The gal who was staying at their house thought they would be home that evening and headed for the beach. Since I had a MOPS Steering Team meeting planned already for last night, I had a friend bring the dog to me when the meeting was over. Poor thing is really confused. She laid next to her food and dog bowl for the first hour until I moved them up high. I think she doesn’t know where she lives anymore. (We had her last week for 2 days also.)
So anyway, life is still moving in fast motion here… but that is fine with me – the faster it goes, the sooner I’ll see my husband. Which reminds me of 265 things that I need to do. Ciao!
