Yay! My dad's coming!

I'm excited. Later today, my dad is coming to visit and he's STAYING THE NIGHT!

This is a big deal.

My dad hates coming downstate. Ever since he moved to the Upper Peninsula, he has hated it. I don't know what the deal is. He hates the traffic for one thing. When you get used to being up there where you can drive for hours and not see a traffic light, some regular road traffic can get to you, I guess. Usually, he will drive down and do whatever business he has to do and head back home the same day, even though it's a 5-6 hour drive (5 the way he drives, 6 the way I do!) ONE WAY!

But anyway, he's coming and he's going to either take us out for dinner or order in (I'd guess order in, since Hubby probably won't be getting home til 6 or 7, and that's kind of late to take the baby out to a restaurant) and then he's going to stay. I can't wait to see him. I miss my dad.

That's about all I have to report. I am very very sore from doing negative pull-ups yesterday at the gym. I did notice when I was doing them that I was able to lower more slowly than the last time I did them, when I was basically just falling like a rock. I am still unable to do one unassisted, but I know that has a lot to do with weight, and I bet if I lost five pounds I'd be able to. I'm close. Hopefully I will meet my goal of being able to do 5 by my birthday in mid-June! That would be awesome.

So, I just plan to use the day to make sure the house is cleaned up. I have to pay some attention to the basement, which has become a catch-all for STUFF. I need to at least "shovel a path" so he can sleep down there! :)

Ok, so, I'll leave you with a really funny photo I found of Logan when he was a baby. My neighbor Lauren took this photo at her house. If you can think of a cute caption to go with it, leave a comment. Maybe I'll send you a prize! I'm not sure what that prize might be, but whatever. It will probably be something like one of those free boxes of four cheap crayons that kids get at a restaurant or in a birthday party goodie bag. Shut up. I'ts free! Leave a comment anyway. I don't get many comments and I love reading them!

Oh that's awesome. He sounds like my parents. They don't get out often and when they do it doesn't last long. Hope you have a fantastic time together. My basement is the same way, but having people over is a great incentive to go ahead and get the house clean!

GREAT pic!
