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.

A Post About Nothing

I have so much I could write right now. I need to finish the story of me and Chris. I could write about politics, current events, and the election. I could explore some of the things I am learning about myself as I navigate a path of being unwell. I could even just rant about how sucky, yet at the same time happy, my life is right now. I even had a post bubbling around in my head about the differences at home when my children are here and when they are not.

But I am not going to. I don't want to- you can't make me. I am going to whine a tiny bit. My laptop died. It might have a chance for resurrection, but right now the best I am hoping for is to get some school docs I need off the hard drive. I am coughing yellow cottage cheese out of my lungs, and I just drove 40 miles one way to find out my Dr's appointment is tomorrow. I missed a "transcendent" St. Patrick's Day at O'Connors (as Chris phrased it). Oh heck- this is my Spring Break too. And I just want to feel better.

I am slowly working on schoolwork. As long as I can stay out of the hospital/ER, it looks hopeful that I will graduate. I am feeling better than last week, and really, besides being utterly overwhelmed, my life is going fairly damn well.

But, like any other adult in this world, I am reserving the right to throw a 3-year-olds tantrum. Too bad I don't have the energy.

EDIT: Oh, and just because...
Typecast Yourself!
