Two significant things happened today! Lila had her 8th B-day party AND the sun came out! Now... being the guy that I am, I tend to believe that the two are NOT mutually exclusive... rather... they are directly related!
The morning started out with the usual pre-party chaos... you know... cleaning... cooking... trying to make the place presentable so that my daughter's friend's parents will actually let their children through the door. The thing is, K and I have done this so many times that we're a well oiled machine! It's kinda like getting better at transitions... practice... and as my brother says, "Slow is smooth. Smooth is fast." So we were done in record time! Kathryn says, "Didn't you have a ride scheduled for today? GO! You have till 11:30." BANG... I was off!
The REALLY great thing is that, for Eugene in February, it was unbelievably warm AND sunny! What a TREAT! SO... I headed out and got in 24.5 miles in zone 1 on rolling hills. SO great! I could have stayed out there all day long just soaking it in... but that would have been a poor daddy/husband choice. So I headed back in for the screaming 8 year old girl High School Musical festivities! Yeah... the party's theme was High School Musical... and if you've seen it? It's "FABULOUS" (parents of little girls will get it). Party was a smashing success and all involved left with a frosting bezoar!
Alrighty! For those that are wondering... Aggie came through just fine. As a matter of fact... it's a struggle to keep the psycho puppy quiet! I can't believe her recovery time! I mean.... I picked her up Friday afternoon and all she wanted to do was play tug-o-war with her favorite "fluffy". Wish I could recover like that!
