A Normal Lunch

Since we moved to a new state after my breast cancer treatment, it is odd for me that here no one knows I had breast cancer.  I feel like a "normal" person, but with a dirty little secret.  I am finally getting settled and meeting people.  I made a new friend at my son's soccer practice and we really hit it off.  We both have boys the same age.  We are both into health and exercise.  She currently works full time as a sales rep and I was in sales for twelve years.  We just really hit it off.  So when she asked me if I wanted to meet up for lunch I was excited.

We went to lunch the other day and it was strange, but in a great way.  For the first time there was NO cancer talk.  She has no idea about my breast cancer.  It's not like I can't tell people, but once they know I am sure they will feel sorry for me or something.   It's not the kind of thing I NEED to tell people either.  It was just nice to go out to lunch and talk about the kids schools, babysitters, healthy snacks for the kids and normal mom talk.  I don't remember the last time I felt that "normal".  I guess in time I will have many more "normal" moments and the breast cancer crap will be a distant memory.  I hope so!
