If you had asked me a week ago what we would be doing this Saturday I would have replied: EVERYTHING. It was going to be a great one:a parenting seminar in the morning, lunch at my MIL, a kid’s party Yianni had been waiting for the whole week and a great grown up dinner at a good friend’s house in the evening. It would have been PERFECT.
And then? Then, LIFE happened. Just like that, or better said, slowly and steadily the great Saturday plans started falling apart.
It all started when I got sick on Tuesday. It was then that I realized that it was not really the crappy meal I made on Friday which made N. feel like shit, it was really THE STOMACH FLU (my absolute worst nightmare). On the same day I got the rejection letter from the school that the seminar was already fully booked. Bummer…
I was a bit annoyed but since I am determined to start looking at the bright side and enjoy my life more, I told myself that it didn’t really matter. Now that we had the morning free, the day would be less tiring.
On Thursday my friend got sick and cancelled the dinner plans. I was really eager to go to that dinner but as a mom of two I totally get the ‘no planning possible with young children’ kinda thing. I told myself that it didn’t matter as we could focus on the birthday party Yiannis was so excited to attend and there was no rush to leave early anymore.
On Saturday, 10 minutes before arriving at the party Yianni threw up….
We arrived at the party, left the gift and took off to return home. I told myself IT DOES MATTER because he really, really, really wanted to go to that party. But then again…there will be other parties!
Until next time,
