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.

Happy Birthday to Boo!

I was looking at my blog and realized I hadn't written anything personal since Feb 10. Things have been busy, hectic, chaotic....

Yesterday was Boo's birthday. My baby is 7. We had a small family party last night.

I am sick today :(. Sore throat, body aches, headache. Blah. Konal got to school, rode his bike, and will only be 10 minutes late. That in and of itself is a whole 'nother issue. Konal has been refusing to go to school in some rather spectacular ways. I was so scared on Friday morning- I have never seen him so out of control. I am worried about the day I am going to have to call 911 and actually have them arrest him.

I have some new good friends I have been running away to on the weekends. They live in rural AZ and I love it at their place. It is quiet and peaceful and I often feel like I could stay out there forever.
I know that running away doesn't solve anything, but it gives me a chance to breathe and relax and come back ready to do it again.

School- well, I think I will save that for another post.

I am ready for a real break, though. I need at least a solid week with no chaos, pain, conflict. I know it is a pipe dream, but at least it is a dream.
