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.

Long Day

I had a rich and rewarding day today, but the end of the evening was hard. I was very busy today. I had physical therapy (which was painful- my knee has been hurting more than usual since Sunday evening), then got called by the school to pick up Konal. He apparently vomited in class. The poor guy. Then I called Steve, because I had a meeting at FIC at 2 PM. I got some Social Work homework done, then went to Family Involvement Center.

It feels so good to be respected and listened to. I don't know what I did to earn that kind of trust and respect, but I have it. We are working on revising the family guide, and it has to be done in 2 weeks. I ran into some old friends while there and got a lot of encouragement to stay focused and in the field.
From there I went directly to class. We had an inspirational guest speaker, and my teacher gave me a lot of encouragement to stay in the field. I also took Aidan's recital pictures to FIC and class and had people ooh and ahh over him :)

Then I came home.

Things had gone south at home, and I got a laundry list of what had gone wrong. Sigh... I am beginning to feel like I can't leave the house, because everytime I do, something major happens.

I felt like crying. Then Steve calls and tells me that he isn't taking the boys this weekend. Then I find out I am overdrawn in my account and I have checks out. I am worried....

How did it go from a good day to a bad day so quickly?
