With Alacrity

I'm going to go on a small rant, like small children do. I love stingrays! This weekend I took Isaiah to Stingray Bay, where you can interact with the stingrays. It was amazing. Isaiah said he was nervous, and didn't want to touch them. I'm pretty sure when I was 6, you couldn't have paid me to stick my hands in there, either.

Yesterday Isaiah climbed in my lap and said, "You know what I like about you? You love me." That was odd, but nice anyway. Well, if that's all it takes....

My kids are so affectionate. They're very huggy, and very liberal with the "I love you"s. I compliment them often, whether it's on school work, on how well they did a certain chore, whatever. Now they, in turn, compliment others often. I like to see that. It's a positive cycle :)

My mom is doing well, she's got 8 treatments done and either 2 or 4 to go. We'll know more after the next PET scan. On Friday she went to see her PCP, Dr Wilson. She said that Dr Wilson asked her to say hello to me. All I could think of was when this whole thing started, sitting in Dr Wilson's office with my mother, when Dr Wilson assumed this was lung cancer. She said, "You never know what will happen. I've had patients who were told they had 3 months to live, and they lived for 3 years." And all I could think was THREE YEARS?? It's not enough. It's not enough. It may sound unnecessary to say, but here it is anyway: I'm so glad that dr was wrong, and that my mom will be ok.

All things said, things are running smoothly at Martinez Inc. I'm looking into my fall class schedule, and facing the possibility of Saturday classes. I don't like it, but if that's what I have to do, so be it. I'm hoping to get a chance to have all 3 instructors be ones that I've had before, which will theorhetically make things easier since you already know what to expect and how they grade. We'll see.

Oh, and the title here? I was reading a Petrarch passage for my Renaissance history/philosophy class and I had to look up "alacrity" to find out what it meant. Now you have to, as well! Muahahaha!
