I think I have written more in the last three weeks for school than I have in the last three years of my life.

Today I went up to NOVA to support Maureen’s best friend, Dana, and her family. Dana’s daughter, Avery, was diagnosed this past July with Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumor, an incredibly aggressive brain cancer. For the next year she will be receiving chemo and radiation therapy. 
In an effort to help Avery’s family with medical cost there was a spaghetti dinner and silent-auction to raise money. The support was overwhelming. I have no count of the amount of money that was raised, however the amount of people who love and surround Avery and her family are incredible. My heart goes out to this precious girl and her family. 
If you would like to donate to Avery’s family to aid with medical cost you can do so here. 
Sidenote: Yes, that is Avery’s face on a paint-stick. She was unable to attend the benefit, but in a special way she was passed around through hundreds of people via this stick, making most of the photos.

When we are not waiting on your tables, we conjugate in the basement and play on our cellphones.

So, I’ve been trying to start school off on the right foot by doing all most  as much of the assigned readings as I possibly can. Today, I probably spent a solid six hours of reading and outlining. As I was reading, I felt I was struggling making the connection between what we were discussing in class and what I was reading. I finally finished and something told me to look at the syllabus. I was sold the wrong book. I had been reading out of the wrong book for two weeks now. 
Which brings me to my picture. No more reading tonight. London, wine, and scratch-offs.

Alright! Fine! I’ll admit it. Mabel is pretty cute (when she is not moving around and breathing like a freakin’ barn animal).
