sad

today is a sad day. last night i got home from work, went down to the gym and ran an easy four miles, signed up for this free financial planning seminar that my condo is running (it's tonight but so far i am the only one signed up), and went to meet my friend for drinks. it was fun but i noticed i had a voicemail on my phone. since the bar was busy i didn't listen to it. then later, around 10:45, my mom called, acting all weird, saying that she was worried about me because she didn't know who i was out with, and it was raining and getting late, and to take a cab home (it's a ten minute walk) and she will pay for it, etc. this is weird because i have not lived at home for seven years, since i was 19, and although we talk a lot, she doesn't regularly check up on me like this. 

so i go home right away and call my mom, and she tells me that my uncle has passed away. he had lymphatic cancer but wasn't expected to die or anything, so it's a bit of a shock and really sad. he didn't have kids of his own and we were really close. :( so anyway, it's a sad, sad day. and scary to think about my parent's siblings dying - really makes me think about mortality... 

ANYWAY today i'm eating:
organic maple nut oatmeal
2 clementines
a turkey and mozza cheese sandwich on whole wheat
strawberries
yogurt with all bran sprinkled in
and for dinner i haven't thought about it

Death is definitely a haunting reality..but give your parents a big hug and appreciate them for their presence today. Family is so important and it is beautiful that your family obviously has love for each other.
