Return to Krista's Korner

"Each of us must come to care about everyone else's children. We must recognize that the well being of our own children is intimately linked to the well being of all other people's children. After all, when one of our children needs life-saving surgery, someone else's child will perform it. When one of our children is harmed by violence, someone else's child will commit it. The good life for our own children can be secured only if it is also secured for all other people's children. But to work for the well being of all children is not just a practical matter-- it is also right!" - Lilian G. Katz, Phd.

It's a new year. Thank Goodness!

I just got back from Jen and Brian's and had an unexpectedly good time. The reason it was unexpected? Konal severely injured my knee yesterday and I am having trouble walking.

Several interesting things happened. First, I got really, really drunk. Never ask friends to get you a drink and when they ask what, say " Oh, whatever you make is fine." I apparently got two Solo cups that were a much higher percentage of tequila than anything else.

I have found that tequila and I do not mix. I actually got really sick this morning- not hangover sick, but o god my stomach sick. No more tequila. EVER......

We all enjoyed sitting around the fire. I pretty much had a spot and stuck to it the whole night for some strange reason. We also had a floor show when some young kids went zipping down the alley at a high rate of speed and hit concrete chunks. Had to call the paramedics. They were fine and really seemed to be more upset about us calling 911 than their injuries.

And, Mr. I want to be single was there. At first it was awkward. Then when I was deep into my drunkenness, I pretty much harangued him for it all in front of his friends. I realized I was too harsh, and almost immediately apologized. That actually seemed to break something open, though. We spent many hours talking, and by today are a "couple". We will see... it is still hard for me to trust this. I keep wondering if he is playing with my head.

And yes, I know I am an idiot. But he makes me feel all good and mushy inside, like I have known him forever. I am just wondering why, after 3 times being all nice, and forgiving and sweet about everything, it took me giving him whatfor for us to get together?
