Well hi there strangers. It has been a long time since I have written, right before Thanksgiving I think. Much has happened in the interim, mostly boring but no news is good news, right?
We had lovely holidays, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas and New Years. We all survived with no major arguments or tantrums, except for me. Asher was quite well behaved given he was off of school for three weeks.
Zack took us and my sister to Cabo for a few days before Christmas, and it was glorious. I was super anxious about going, and ultimately it was a great time. We had a blast with my sister and the kids are obsessed with Auntie, you couldn’t ask for a more perfect time. Zack and I certainly needed that little getaway, even if it was with the kids and Dylan woke up at 5:30 every day. The best part was seeing people look at our dynamic and decide if we were Sister Wives or who was married to Zack. That was a fun game to play. Sick, yet totally fun.
New Years was awesome, especially because my parents watched the kids. We didn’t have to find a sitter this year! Cancer gives you a pass and makes your parents do that kind of thing. I totally agree. Wonder what we have to do next year for them to do it again?
Now that we are back to the grind, things are obviously slowing down and getting back to a routine. Things will be out of a routine for me for a while as I go in for my exchange on Friday. Meaning I get my expanders out and my permanent implants placed. Thank god, because these suckers are really starting to annoy me! I am not nervous about the surgery, mostly that the size will be ok! This is a permanent thing and I want to make sure that I am totally happy with them! It will be six weeks of no lifting, which is so restricting and hard with the kids. It is what it is and then I will be free and clear from then on!
Lastly, I wanted to share the news that I started a team for the Susan G. Komen walk on March 11. The walk will be at Dodger Stadium and if you are in the LA area, I would love for you to join our team. We are racing under the “Cupcakes and Chemo” team name, and are even going to have shirts made for everyone participating! If you can’t walk, please consider a donation. I am very cautious about my causes, and know that SGK is a valid resource doing all they can to find a cure for Breast Cancer.
Here is a link to sign up or donate.
I wish you and yours a happy and HEALTHY new year. Only the best in 2017! Here’s a pic of me on our official FUCK cancer trip to Cabo!
