6 things

I don't love being tagged (although I love the Kelly that tagged me) but I think its going to be easy to tell you six things/habits about me that I haven't previously posted. I can think of 17 random things of today.

1. Ive spent 4 hours today on a 5 minute video clip for YW in excellence. I have to admit, its going to be worth it!!

2. I have 10 new words in my vocabulary, thanks to 2 hours of researching melanoma on the world wide web. I want to be an expert. Although I don't usually indulge like this, I do spend a lot of time thinking what I'm going to do with my life after this nightmare is over. Will I be a cancer nurse? Cancer photographer? Cancer health educator? Or will I go with something Ive never done? Ive always told Josh that I feel like I haven't hit my career yet. I don't know what its going to be.

3. I have a superpower, a 7th sense. Its really annoying. During the surgery on my leg they had to cut some nerves. I think some of them are growing back. You know that feeling in your stomach you get when you drive down a little hill kind of fast? I feel it in my leg (only stronger) when I panic, even before I panic. If Luke is dangerously jumping on the couch I have to grab my leg, "Luke, no! Please!" Every time he runs around a corner. "Ahhh!"
Lets just say I hope its not forever.

4. I signed a pact on my friend Camilles blog: "Just finished Eclipse. I would like to start a petition of readers who refuse to carry on with this stupid craze. If you will join me in your commitment to not read the 4th book (and any other additional ramblings of the same story over and over) please sign here." I could go on about my mixed feelings for these books. I'm relieved that now I cant keep reading.

5. My cat really bugs me sometimes. I just threw him off of me. This is new since cancer. I cant figure it out.

6. My kids and I like to remember the good old days. Sam told me today, "Mommy, remember when we could sit on both of your laps?"

I vote for the cancer health educator!! I have my questions for you, I will send them to your email address. Tell Sam to remember when you were pregnant and didn't have
ANY lap to sit on!

I'm feeling bad for Winston, who deserves our love!!!! Remember when you used to be the champion of all things cat? Those were the days--porcelin, ceramic, stuffed, paper and real--it was all for the cats. And if anyone made a disparaging remark about cats. . .well, watch out for Alisa.

Doc said...

Don't stop at educator, Alisa. Go for crusader!

Jesse and Leah said...

My vote's for cancer photographer! You always do such an AMAZING job!

lou said...

Wow, Steve. You're becoming quite the writer. I wonder if someone wrote the comment on the wrong account...?

Remember Fifi? She was trouble.

Karlet said...

I can come cuddle with Winston if you need me to!

ronco said...

Alisa, I'll support you in whatever career path you choose, but I also think photography ought to enter somewhere there.

Roger and Kelli Proctor said...

K-I left a message on the other one but since this one is the latest I figured you might not see the other message, so Thursday or Friday for dinner, what is your vote? And you mostly like italian right?

balega said...

you can do any or all of those things, i am amazed at the talent you have in everything you do.

Sonja said...

Josh is right--you have always succeeded in whatever you have tried, so you'll rock at whatever career you choose. Maybe you could bill yourself as a cancer photographer/caretaker who captures special moments while caring for patients and then publishes a book with the pictures and other educational materials to inspire and inform the world about cancer. An all-in-one sort of a deal.

Sonja said...

And by the way, Kirsten, I've been scientiststeven alot these days because of a new obsession on the family blogs. I never know who I am anymore.

I admit that the Twilight books are easy to get pulled into but in my opinion they don't have much substance.

jennie said...

Oh my, I love the lap comment! So funny. At least you know your other lap was a leg and not an abdominal apron of some sort. tee hee.

mamabear said...

I'm with balega you are filled to the brim with talent. But I appreciate your talent to be such a good homemaker and mother. I didn't spend much time there when you were well, but I can tell you that you have a wonderful talent to still be a kind and considerate mother, friend, and wife in spite of how you must feel. I always feel grateful to be around you and your limitless possibilities
