Tomorrow I fly across the country for a surprise visit to my ex-boss. He has advanced cancer which has spread from bladder to thyroid to brain. Time feels precious these days, so I organized a mini-reunion and I along with a couple of former co-workers are going to surprise our ex-boss. I had a cool custom-made present that I'm bringing along that I hope he will like. It will be a bittersweet visit - I'm both looking forward to seeing everyone again and to hopefully bringing some unexpected cheer to my ex-boss, but I'm also trying not to think that this may be the last time I see him.
After a couple of days visiting my ex-boss, I'm going to travel a few hours to visit my Mom and siblings. That will be a happier visit - and I'll catch up with a few very old friends as well. But it will also be a dangerous visit, since all my favorite foods will be within reach. I am planning on binging on fresh seafood, and have decided to feel no guilt over it. Fresh shellfish - I don't have the willpower to resist!
