Busy upcoming few days. Ann's in Minnesota to be with her mom for her last round of chemo and a conference with her doctor so I'm single parenting. Except for the fact that she left dinners in the fridge for every night she's gone which is awesome!

It's easier now that Abby can watch Andy while I run though.

PM: I got in a 10k on the treadmill while Abby was at swim practice.The gym was an unpleasant madhouse.

Wow, that is awesome. we don't even get dinners in the fridge when my wife is home at our house.

Hope your mother in law is OK. Dealing with Cancer sucks. I haven't had anyone real close to me go through it but I've seen how hard it is on other families.

Thanks Rob. We're having a borderline epidemic of it in our family now.

Hope Anne's mom does well throught the treatments.

Hang in there being a single dad for a few days. Hope the kids are well and school is going ok. You are coaching track again, correct?

I tried calling you week or so ago to say hi. Give me a call when you get a chance.
