Went to the gym, did one hour of weight training. I usually do 30 minutes of cardio and then walk from the train station to work for another 30 minutes, but it is VERY windy out and the wind cuts right through my jacket, so I walked on the treadmill at the gym for one hour and took the bus into work from the train. Total walking distance - 3.7 miles.

Update on my Dad - my sister took him back to the Seattle area with her after visiting him at the nursing home in Oregon. He's now in a nursing home near her. He has been diagnosed as having had Parkinson's disease for at least four years and has been put on medication for it. He is never going home to his house in Oregon again. April and I will clean it out at some point. She says she can only do four day weekends. I have a total of two weeks of vacation time.

Wow, I'm glad your Dad is cared for and has a place close to Renato and April. I am also happy she moved him from the Nursing Home. I know he is much happier not being around all those old people. =-)

He's still around old people. He's still in a nursing home.
