Life goes on...

I missed my 1 year anniversary of being chemo free- December 3rd. I was at a cancer support group that day and mentioned that it had been about a year, but didn't think about it again until a few days later when I realized I had missed it. I attribute this to a couple of things- I have been doing a lot, and I have started to feel back to normal again. I no longer think about cancer 24/7. I don't feel the need to tell everyone I come in contact with about the hell I've experienced. I can make plans for the future again.

And I have been doing a lot! Since I last posted 2 months ago, I went to Central Europe. Ethan's band played in Prague, Wrocław (Poland) and Vienna, then we went to Budapest for a few days to recover from the tour in the thermal baths. Ethan flew home from there and I went on to Ljubljana and Piran (Slovenia), Venice for one night and finally to Switzerland to visit family near Zürich. I was gone for a month. When I returned I jumped right into the holiday season with a fabulous couple of days celebrating Thanksgiving with Ethan's cousins. And this morning we're starting a remodel! Carport demolition first, hearing the hammering makes it real. Even though I'm not thinking that much about cancer anymore, I do constantly think about how lucky I am.
