It was bound to happen. I had to celebrate my son's birthday today, and then this morning I received very bad news. My dearest friend/cousin who is like a sister to me took a turn for the worst. On Monday, she will know how quickly the clock is really ticking now and whether I should fly there to be with her. My heart has been broken for a long time over her illness as she's already dealt with breast cancer 12 years ago, and now suffering from a much more ominous cancer. Well, I ate with semi-abandon today. Honestly, I don't regret it at all as part of the birthday festivities. But I also must admit that I did so while being very stern with my psyche that this did not mean that I would stay off-track. And I got an hour of exercise in, so I'm back on-track from now on. If I have to leave this week, I will not be on SP, but that is the least of my worries. I hope they hold my page open for a bit of time before wiping it off the system.
