All's well that ends well

Today started out on the low-end of the seratonin scale.. even though I was able to sleep in a little bit (I took the morning off). Dad's chemotherapy appointment was at 9:45.. I feel like a fish out of water whenever Ebru and Reis are not with me. So much to do.. so much free time to take advantage of.. a man can go insane, especially when they're afflicted with the 'all-or-nothing' OCD as I am.. I went to work at 1:30, sat through a production meeting and excused myself early to go "make some phone calls".. Thought about putting on my coat and going home not less than five times, but guilt- my other affliction, kept me at the office until 6:00.. Practising my new yo-yo technique while barking at clients and associates on speakerphone, blunted the pain of exerting minimal effort to my responsibilities. (For the all-or-nothing personality, anything between all or nothing, hurts) Now it's almost 11:00 and I just completed an hour's work-out on my rollers. Feeling strong enough now that I don't want to sleep again, not until I fall down exhausted. The chart you see represents my work-out. It shows my speed, heart rate (in red of course) among a variety of other technical info about my 'body machine'. Can you name another blogger who so literally puts his heart into his blog?

I'm sorry to hear that your father is going thru chemotherapy. This must be a very painful time for you and your loved ones, and my heart goes out to you.

I wish your father a speedy recovery.

You have a good heart Murat.
