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 23

I sure am good with the advice, just not very good at sticking to it. I am looking at my pantry and I can see that I probably should just clear it out and start over.

Really, the Ramen noodles, Campbells condensed soups, all that pasta, Jiffy corn muffins, Fruit Loops, instant oatmeal, Ranch dressing ... I need to just donate that stuff to the Food Bank.

Here's my excuse - if I don't have that food in my house, my daughter will be missing out on the fun foods of childhood.

What? So she can struggle with food choices when she gets older? Like I do?

I am feeling overwhelmed and frustrated. I must be PMS-ing.
