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.

Lazy Days

My stomach is roiling from pain as I sit here. My knee hurts way too much. I will have to make a Doctor's appt tomorrow and see what the damage is. I barely slept last night, and that is not helping.

I did drag myself up and went to Barnes & Noble. I used my Christmas money and bought some good books. I bought David Eddings The Belgariad Volume 1 and was glad to see they are consolidating his books. I read them years ago. I want to read them and also bought them thinking Konal might enjoy it. I also bought the Once and Future King by TH White- another classic I want to re-read and that Konal might like.

I replaced my old copy of Beauty by Robin McKinley. That is an old favorite near and dear to my heart. Hmmm- o, and the Gate to Women's Country by Sheri Tepper and an anthology: Murder by Magic- Twenty Tales of Crime and the Supernatural.

I probably shouldn't have gone, but I figured I needed reading material if I am going to be stuck on the couch. I have been adding some more pictures to my web site. I am having fun going through the memories contained in the pictures.

I also rejoined some mailing lists I had let fall to the wayside. I have known the people on these lists for many years and it is nice catching up with them.

Jeff, formerly known as Mr. Want to be single, came over last night. We just sat and watched Welcome to Mooseport. I like this. I am very comfortable with him. We talk easily and he is nice to snuggle with. I am worried, though. After all of the crap last year, I am worried he will just disappear on me again.

I can only have faith and get to know him better.
