I'm working today - shocker! I have a little bit of time before heading out the door. Since it's only a 7 minute drive away, I'm pretty lucky and can maximize my morning time.

My dad has had a complete 180 in the last week, I can barely believe it. He is suddenly his old self again. He actually told me last week to stop bossing him around! Yesterday he was on the phone all afternoon, calling credit card companies, insurance companies, and so forth. That was virtually unheard of only two weeks ago, when he was too confused and afraid to take simple calls from anyone other than family members. He's been exercising a lot too, by himself on top of it, and he's getting stronger! He actually did chest press and upright row the other day - I was shocked. And he's been doing hamstring curls with increased weight, and now he's able to lift his left leg way higher than he could last week. It's all very shocking. He wants to go bike riding, do things with friends... it's just crazy. He's been getting annoyed at us because he feels we're babying him too much. I had to remind him that that's what we've had no choice but to do for the past 7 months - he doesn't seem to remember that. Anyways, let's just say that I'm extremely happy, but it's still a huge adjustment. We'd like him to have a little less attitude, and more sensitivity. But I guess it's just part of his reaction to the pills.

Well, I've gotta take off but I'll leave you with some pages.

Hey lady hopefully you wont have long to wait, Angus is definitely coming to your side of the pond. I read an article about it saying they had to change the name of the film from Angust, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging to Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging because they didn't think American parents would approve of the full frontal bit!!
