I'll never capitalize cancer

I have alot going on in my life, more than just cancer and chemo. Sure it's a big part of my life right now, but it's not the most important part of my life. You will never see me spell it with a capital "c".

I'm a Wife and Mom. I love my Family. I have good Friends. We do fun stuff and dumb stuff and sometimes we argue and then we laugh again. We go to work and to the grocery store and we go swimming and have birthday parties and get ready for the first day of school.

I keep saying that I don't want ovarian cancer to define me, but sometimes I just can't help it.

A good friend put it this way for me "cancer may be defining your life for the moment, but it is not your entire life. You seem to just make time for it." That made me feel better.

If you want to see it from the beginning, my cancer story begins in March.

The rest of my story is happening now.

Commit2Fit Day 1

Distractions - I have alot of them.

It is so easy to get sidetracked.

The bird, the Pet store, Mother's Day, the pool and a Star Wars marathon.

It's after midnight and I will have to keep this short. Day 2 I will have more to share.

But here is the important stuff:

My Food Diary, and I only got 8 cups of water but I am trying to finish off another 4 while I sit here at the computer. I guess I won't get my point for the day.

I remember when Star Wars first came out - we stood in line to see it at NorthPark theater. It was a good day - me, my brother & sister and my Dad (weekend visitation)

Everyone is asleep here. Luke Skywalker and the Rebels are about to attack the Death Star.

I have to pee!
