Today it's Friday. I'm relieved. Since Hurricane Sandy life hasn't
In a few days I leave for Haiti, to assist another community that hasn't been right for a very long time. (Understatement?) People tell me how wonderful it is to be helping other people. Truth be told, I don't know how much help I'll be. I fear I'll be the bumbling fool getting in everyone's way and being more a nuisance than help.
I'm not a saint (not by a long shot). Volunteer work isn't this holier than thou, altruistic act. It makes me feel good. Really good. That's why I do it.
But tonight it's about relaxing and doing selfish things that also make me feel good. A little exercise at the gym, followed by drinks, dinner and laughs with my honey and some friends.This should restore some balance to my life!
