Hey guys! I'm doing good. Just got back from a nice 6 mile run down to the lake and back through the woods. I love it :) I even lapped a guy runner! Form form form!!! And for goodness sakes, take out those ear buds! Lol Alrighty ...

So my Dad was released from the hospital on Tuesday morning. I went to take him over some food Wednesday morning. A roast dinner, mashed potatos, gravy, spaghetti casserole, potato soup, my garden green beans, strawberry jello, and chocolate cake. All yummy!

As I was helping him with the beans I told him I'd never have known he was just in the hospital and minus one lung. He said, " well thanks, I thought what the h3ll and went to the bar the other night (Tuesday) and had a beer. You should have seen my friends eyes ... they popped open real wide ... what are you doing here?!"

Oh geez dad. :) I love you but take it easy for goodness sakes! See what I'm working with here! I love that guy. He loves life and always ceases the day.

So school has started! My oldest daughter is running cross country and my other two are playing soccer. All that plus training for my marathon has made my calendar full! I'm happy about this.

Lets see ... I think that's about it for now. Just wanted to give a quick fyi. I'm gearing up for a great day, hope you are as well!

Run happy! emoticon

Nikki :)

    Very uplifting post! emoticon So glad your dad is doing well and enjoying life so much. I lost my dad 3 years ago and miss him terribly. He had a similar, fun outlook on life. Please give your dad an extra hug for all of us who miss our dads. emoticon

    It's great that you and your daughters stay active and fit. You are a great mother and a great daughter. Your father sounds like mine -a very special person who loves life and has many people that love him. I had to let my father go 27 years ago and still miss him terribly. Give your dad a hug from me for reminding me of my dad. I'm so glad he's still enjoying life.

    Your dad sounds fabulous and I see where you get your zany ways from:) Glad he is feeling better and in awesome spirits!

LOL on the earbuds thing. I am one of the only ones out there without them. I like the quiet, although my trodding along like an elephant and breathing is far from quiet.

It's wonderful that your kids are following in mom's healthy footsteps:) When is the marathon? Is it a full one or is it "the half" with Beth??? ;P

    haha so funny that you lapped that guy! I bet that felt good.

I bet your father went there more for the social aspect of seeing his friends and proving to them that he is okay. Of course the beer wasn't such a healthy choice but what can you do lol. Hopefully he takes it easy now that he's gone out and done that!!

You are a lovely daughter for bringing him all those yummy foods!
