Not a bad day
What happened today:
9:45am Routine check-up with endocrinologist at NYU Medical Center. Got to tell him how I've been doing in the last three months! (My Dad passed away, I was laid off, and I'm still not pregnant. I'm doing just fine!)
10:15am Brunch at Sunflower Diner on the East Side. Two eggs over easy, whole wheat toast and coffee. Read.
11:15am Walk to Madison Square Park to continue reading The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch. I cry as I read about his own and his family's cancer journey. Squirrel comes close, scurries across the top of the bench. Think it was Dad?
12:10pm Walk to lunch appointment on 20th & 8th.
12:30pm Lunch with old colleagues from GCWW.
2:30pm Check-in with sister- and brother-in law. Does the baby need a playmate this afternoon?
3:00pm Ice cream and visit with brother-in-law Steve and nephew/godson Jasper. Any time with a little one lifts my spirits. I needed that today. Thanks, Jasper!
4:00pm Subway to Bryant Park. Start to read A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle.
6:00pm Al meets me after work, and we walk to Port Authority for our bus commute home. On the bus, I am once again overwhelmed thinking about my Dad while listening to tunes on my ipod. Why can't I stop thinking about his last few days with us?
8:00pm Al & I forego the gym and make it a double feature -- a Walmart and Pathmark date! Al wants to pick up more fishing stuff (Think he has enough?), and we need more groceries.
9:30pm Salad, spinach nuggets and turkey burger patties for dinner.
Not a bad day for the unemployed. Blessings.
