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 13

I need to go Downtown to pick up ballet recital tickets.

My little distraction is coming along with me. We LOVE Downtown. But we are just picking up tickets and then coming right back home! I need to finish up on the Commit2Fit presentation for Saturday.

Look at this, someone dropped a rose on the sidewalk. And look at this cool rock, and the train ...

Maybe we could have lunch at The Barking Dog.

I think I like this place. It's got that funky Downtown way about it that I like so much. And no one is looking at me like I'm crazy for bringing my kid into a restaurant. That's what I like about Hog Wild, that's where we usually have lunch. Today were just checking out this new place. They have a limited menu, and I am eating an $7 salad, but it's comfortable. I see that they have live music and poetry readings and stuff. We'll be back.

Drank all my water - 12 cups. But we got lost looking for the ticket office and I missed my snack. Lose a point! My Food Diary. Just gotta plan ahead, that really is the key. The lemon meringue pie after dinner made up for it. Even though I don't think it works that way.

We measure tomorrow. And get ready for Life Habits 3 & 4. I am looking forward to seeing and hearing from everyone.
