Courtney has had a pretty exciting last few days.  We bought her first car.... a 1994 Honda Accord.  She loves it even if it is now new.  lol  She got to drive it to work on Monday for the first time, and she has been running errands the last few days after work.  I have her text me when she gets to work in the morning.... when she leaves for lunch... leaves for work.... gets to her destinations... and is on her way home.  I am not sure if this is too much or not.  I just worry a lot more since the cancer.  She is a very good sport about it though and has no problem doing this for me.  She just laughs and says, "it's going to be okay, Larry!"  Yes, my child calls me Larry, and I answer to it.  lol   We all call each other different, silly names, and Courtney came up with Larry somehow and it stuck!  She even painted me a picture at St. Jude that says, "I love Larry."  She is so funny!  When I get uptight or anxious she comes up to me and rubs the top of my nose with her finger.  It always makes me laugh and I automatically feel better.

We are hoping to move in the next year to lower our house payment, but need to come up with a 20% down payment.  I was a little shocked, but decided to not worry about it and just save as much as we can and hopefully move within 1-2 years.  We found a house we liked and we all were just a little disappointed that we could not buy it.  I know there is a reason for everything,

Courtney and my little ones start school one week from today.  I cannot believe how the summer flew by.  She is now a senior and will be going to school 1/2 day and working at the bank from 12:00 to 4:30.  She really loves being a bank teller.

Today another melanoma friend died.  It is so heartbreaking and sooooo scary.  So many have died in the last 6 months.  I no longer do melanoma research on the internet as it only made me worry terribly... the worrying has aged me... and now I am no longer depressed and worried that Courtney will die.  I feel so confident that she will beat this (like she has been) and will live a long, long life!
Love, Courtney's Mama
