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.

No Flu!

So, here in Maricopa county, three schools are being closed for 7 days due to the swine flu.  My kids are worried, everyone is talking about it at work, and the internets are abuzz.
I have to help a family move tomorrow at work, then go to a candlelight vigil hosted by the Mental Health Awareness Coalition. The next day, I have a United Way event, then I need to create a presentation on what success in families looks like for a talk in 2 weeks.  I also need to create the curriculm for a class I run.  The topic this month is utility resources.
How is all this tied together.  I am sitting here with a sore throat, stiff neck, and rapidly filling up nose, not to mention this awful headache that has created momzilla all evening.
Both the boys are complaining they don't feel well, as well.  I doubt it is the swine flu, but even if it is, I am sunk.  I have no paid time off.

To think I can't pursue the management job in Flagstaff someone recommended me for today.  Sometimes, my life is too complicated.
