Ohana means Family

I went with Jacob to see Disney on Ice today (Mickey and Minnie's Magical Journey). It was pretty good - much more interesting to him than the Disney Princesses one was last year!
So - -I felt a little silly when the Lilo and Stitch section made me tear up a little bit! I've liked the movie since it came out, but I had not really thought about the plot at all for years. Anyway - so Lilo asks her sister, "We're a broken family, aren't we?" and her sister starts to say no, but realizes that maybe they are. Later on in the movie (and in the Disney on Ice rendition), Lilo invites Stitch to be part of their family, and she says something similar to, "we're a broken family, and we're small, but we're still good." This made me think about me and Jacob, for obvious reasons. I don't want to get too deep here, but we may be a tiny family, but we are still good and we love each other and help each other!

Lilo: We're a broken family, aren't we?
Nani: No... Maybe, a little. Maybe a lot. I shouldn't have yelled at you.
Lilo: We're sisters. It's our job.
Nani: Yeah, well, from now on...
Lilo: I like you better as a sister than a mom.
Nani: Yeah?
Lilo: And you like me better as a sister than a rabbit, right?

later. . .

Lilo: Our family's little now,. . . But if you want, you could be a part of it. You could be our baby, and we'd raise you to be good.

Jacob is sick. . .

Jacob hasn't felt good for the last couple days, and this evening he had a fever of 103.2! This kid never has fevers, so I ended up taking him to the ER. They said he has an ear infection, gave us a prescription for amoxicillin and sent us on our way.

I actually did some more homework tonight, for those of you that have been encouraging me to keep on keeping on. I may even start writing my paper in a bit! whoo-hoo!

I did some homework.

Yay for me! I'm finally starting to feel like, "Ok. . .I can do this." Hopefully it will last.

So. . .I only have two more classes until I'm done with my Masters - the one I am now, and then just ONE more, but I am SOOooooo unmotivated to do the work. I don't want to give up and be like, "yeah - -I almost got my Masters, but I didn't finish." That would be ridiculous, but man oh man. . .I just do NOT want to do it! BLAH

I really like this one. . .

This is a little girl (Tinkerbell), with her parents, Captain Hook and Peter Pan at the ward Trunk or Treat. . .
