Breast cancer awareness month

As a Breast cancer survivor of 9yrs, I find I have different reactions to Breast cancer awareness month even on a day to day basis. 

Sometimes I resent the reminder that 9yrs ago this month I was recovering from a mastectomy & fretting over starting chemotherapy. That our first wedding anniversary & my 40th birthday was over-shadowed by my recovery.

Other times I’m grateful & humble I’ve made it 9yrs past some of the worst days of my life. 

Mostly I wish for every awareness campaign there were equal amounts of energy put towards finding a cure.

11Jun20 I needed a chocolate fix and just happene 11Jun20  I needed a chocolate fix and just happened to have some little graham crackers and Nutella.  Match made in heaven!  My mother used to make chocolate frosting to go on graham crackers. I’m sure this is the ‘modern’ version of the same.  #muchlatergram #2020pad #comfortfood #grahamcrackers #chocolate #nutella #yum

I’m unsure just where to put it, but have lots of things I could write in aside from my 17min 2k rowing time.  Things like “Improving with practice” “Only going to get better” “A deep dark secret”…. LOL!  #muchlatergram #rowing #darkhorserowing  #keepmoving #iamadarkhorse #imadarkhorse

I guess I’ll have to find an actual recipe.  I used leftover pastry and just put a few Morello cherries in straight from the jar, sprinkled them with Natvia (stevia), put the top on and cooked it.  The sauce (there was only a LITTLE bit, I swear) went everywhere. The pie was wonderful, but not the cleanup!  #muchlatergram #2020pad  #cookingforone  #cooking #piemaker #makingitupasIgo #cherry #chicken

I was considering buying a similar one but needed to find out what it was like to actually drive and park.  Most of all, it was fun!
