What's On My Plate

We are sure getting some ugly weather for March. I can hear the wind howling ... yikes. Looks like it's going continue into the week, too.

Yesterday, I got a phone call and someone said to me ... "How are you doing? "... "No, how are you really doing?" Well I still gave her the pat answer ... I'm fine ... but after I got off the phone, I really thought about it. How am I doing? To be honest that changes often throughout the cycle but right now I'm doing pretty good. I have a lot on my plate and being busy has always helped me navigate through life.

So what do I have on my plate ... I have my college course, I have my blogging, I have my quilting group and my cognitive behavior group. I find these things keep me mentally challenged, focused and more importantly, they keep me busy ... less time to think about the cancer.

So back to the original question, how am I doing ... I guess the answer is ... I'm doing pretty good. By being involved in a few things, I feel like I'm accomplishing something, being productive ... and for me that is so important.

I have some other things in the back of my mind that I'd like to start up but unfortunately the physical energy doesn't always match up to the mind's energy level.

One thing is for sure ... I'm glad I have the spunk to want to do more.
