June 7th was the anniversary of my MOAS, the cytoreductive surgery.
I was dreading it and planning to be a hermit, but fate had other plans for me. First my son volunteers me as a parent helper at their heritage walk and art workshop that day (so how could I say no?) and then the day before our upstairs neighbors floods our apartment!
Suffice it to say it wasn't the most relaxing all days all around. It did, however, remind me again to put things in perspective and not sweat the smaller things as much. Aiden and the kids in his class had a fabulous time despite the pouring rain, we are not at fault so the strata and the guy upstairs will have to pay for the damage.
Most importantly? I'm around to deal with life's stresses alongside my guys and realize how lucky we are. <3
