Day 239…

11.12.12

It’s the start of another week and I’m waking up after a so-so night of sleep.  I had grand expectations of a solid night based on my run yesterday, but so it goes.  I’m up, walking Ri, showering and off to work I go.  I plan to give the F train a try this morning as Jordan said it could be faster than the 6 while I still wait on the N/R/Q to get back to normal…

The train was much faster than I expected – maybe I have a new route to work…I grab my coffee and into the office I go.  Catching up with my work friends on the weekend activities and then start to dive into the work of the day.  As always, there are a lot of things going on in the office, but I’m not one to complain about that.  Better to be busy than to not…Breaking for lunch (thai food today) and then making a couple calls and back to emails I go…

I’m not sure if I ever mentioned that in mid-September I was given the opportunity to be interviewed by an organization called Gifts that Give.  They are a non-profit company that donates 20% of merchandise purchased to the charity of the shopper’s choice.  A main recipient of the charity is LLS/TNT with whom I have a strong affiliation through my fundraising and the strong ties that I’ve formed with them since my diagnosis.  They asked me about my experience fighting cancer and how it shaped my outlook on life.  You can read it here…I feel very honored to be given another platform where I can share my story and I hope that on some levels it can help and/or inspired others that are fighting their own hiccups…

The rest of the day goes quickly as we crank out our work…I’m going to relax at home tonight with Ri, make some dinner and catch up on my DVR…

Until tomorrow…
