First of all, thanks for the nice comments!

So yes, I'm still doing kettlebells, just not as much. It's tough to fit 4 days of P90X and 25 or so miles into a week. But my kettlebells are still here, my clients still love them, and they will always be a part of my fitness life.

My parents are doing ok. For now my dad's Alzheimer's is under control with medication (as long as he remembers to take it). In two weeks we're celebrating his 80th birthday. I'm going to decorate my car, pick him up, then we're going to play, 80 year old style! First stop will be the first house my parents bought when they came to CA. Then off to CSUS where my dad taught for 45 years. Then coffee. Then my house, where we'll watch the movie UP (my dad doesn't want to go to a theater -- too many germs). Then lunch, then I'll take him home. Doesn't that sound fun??? In case you're wondering, my mom is invited, but she never leaves the house, so she won't be joining us.

Is anyone dressing up for Halloween? I love the idea, but can't get enthusiastic about something that nobody else in my family cares about, you know? But I may buy some pumpkins today, just for the fun of it!

Yeah for the kettlebells!!!
Sounds like a "great" day with Dad coming up. I'd give anything to have a day like this with my Dad/Mom again.
BTW....Happy (belated 20th) Anniversary!

That's a tough situation for him to be in, but one thing I'm sure is, is that he can still be proud of you, and the things you have done.

That is a great gift to give him in his senior years.

Take care and best wishes.

:-) :-).

Sounds like a perfect day for your dads birthday!

I know what you mean about the Halloween thing. Ashley and I are going to see a movie for Halloween...maybe "This Is It". I think that this will be the beginning of a tradition :)

Wow, that is a big day for your dad. My MIL would never be able to keep up with that much activity. I took her to get her hair done and that was enough for one afternoon.

I can really relate to what you are going through with your parents right now. I know it's not easy. Hang in there and have fun with your dad.
