Good evening!
I got to spend a lot of time with my father today. What a difference a day makes! He could barely stand up yesterday. Today he went to physical therapy and did everything they asked him to. He is struggling but I pray that he has the strength to keep pushing himself. The doctor also ran tests to see if anything else might be wrong but the results were all normal! I hope he continues to improve, I can't wait to see him tomorrow.
Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers, it means so much to me!

We didn't even go anywhere in the woods, but she did go near the edge.

I hate ticks, I am glad you got it off Har quickly.

Just talked to my sister and mom. They said the concert was great but they froze because the temperature dropped really quick after it rained and their thin coats didn't do much to stop the wind. They've also been in their car for 30 minutes and haven't even managed to pull out of their parking spot. So they won't be home for awhile.

Thanks, Xmas!

I didn't handle it the best! Poor Har ran away from me, so I must've scared her when I yelled for Adrian to come help me, he was downstairs. I was in panic mode.

I'll have to try to stay more calm if it ever happens again

Glad they had a great time!!
... too bad the weather is still being difficult, though.

Hope they don't get stuck for too long.

Good evening,

Captain party pooper here, so little time the last few days to post much of anything here. I have the next 2 days off, 2 days off in a row are so rare for me so I cherish this. JP had a Cub Scout Den meeting tonight, and my wife had her Zumbathon so that meant I had to bring LC with us, never trust a 5 y/o with a stick, fire, and a flaming marshmallow. I will be heading right back out first thing in the morning for JP's baseball practice, if it doesn't rain. Just watched some Robot Chicken, will listen to some music before the sandman visits.


Good night all.
