I love my dad

Anna and I decided to have our date night today--way earlier than any other week's been.  It was fun.  Yes, we went to Old Country Buffett (an old indulgence); but we ate so much better!  I had a large plate of salad (consisted of spring greens, beets, baby corn, eggs, garbanzo beans, and vinegar with a light drizzle of oil).  Then I had baked fish, baked chickes, a small amount of BBQ pork, and stir-fried chicken, a piece of meatloaf with a roll, and a wedge of steamed cabbage. And finally for dessert, I had a small amount of fat free, no sugar added frozen yougurt with peaches, 3 small pieces of jello and some melon.  I know that all sounds like a lot, but it really wasn't nearly as bad as I used to be.  I think I don't have to fear buffets anymore!  I won!  And then we went shopping (didn't buy much, but walked aroung a ton).

Okay, so why do I love my dad?  Well, lots of reasons, but today he did something really loving.  As you all know, the weekend before last, I decided to start a kitchen remodel.  Well, we didn't get it done in one weekend (duh, right?), so I've been working on it a little here and there--poor Anna, she has to live in a construction zone!  On Saturday, dad came over and helped me finish putting on all the drywall corner molding/forms.  Then on Sunday, I did the first sanding, and mudded some more.  I was dreading doing the rest of the second coat tonight.  But we got home, and dad had finished all of the second coat!  I don't have to work ont the kitchen again until Wednesday (it'll probably take that long to dry, since it's a little cold out)!  Of course, I'm not looking forward to that either, but man, that was such a nice thing for my dad to do.

That was really great of your Dad. It is nice to be surrounded by loved ones. Also, great job on the buffet. I have not totally conquered the buffet yet, but I am getting there.
