After I wrote my scathing post yesterday about the peanut responses, I felt horrible. Not about the post (I still think those people are "nuts" for being angry at a small child), but because I'm coming down with a bug. I ache all over and my head hurts horribly. I spent the better part of the afternoon, from 3 pm until I fell asleep in bed. Good news there is that I was able to watch a whole season of "America's Next Top Model" (obviously there was nothing on TV yesterday). I had so many plans for yesterday and all of them got shelved. No trips to Home Depot. No catching up on laundry. No flank steak for dinner (see Barb for the recipe). Nothing. Today doesn't appear to be much better. I woke up achy and my head still hurts. I think I'll be skipping church this morning (Sorry God, but I don't want to pass this on to the masses), and hopefully as the day wears on I'll feel better. Maybe I can at least get some laundry done. I was hoping to scrap book today, but I don't think that'll happen either. We have a busy week ahead and being sick is not in the forecast for me. I just hope the boys don't get this (hubby either).
I love the responses I got to yesterdays post. Yes, I was angry when I wrote that. I thought about going back in and editing myself, but that is how I was feeling at the time, so I left it. That's me and if you read it, then you read me. Since it's my blog, I guess I don't have to censor myself :) I just want to clarify that I wasn't angry about the "non peanut free school". I was angry at the attitude toward the boy himself. He's six. He didn't ask for an allergy. There is no need for adults to speak about him that way. My son has so many allergies (egg and wheat being his most severe) that I could never ask for a "free" school. Besides, in my opinion, my son needs to learn to advocate for himself and learn how to live in the real world. But maybe that child's allergy prohibits him from doing that. We could at least have compassion.
News from blog land: Don't forget about Heather on Wednesday April 18Th. Donations or Prayers are appreciated.
Kelli could use some prayers right now too. She's going through a difficult time.
And please keep Andria in your prayers. They should be adding a new addition to their family this week.
OK, I think that's it. I've given you a lot to pray about. Sorry to ask for so much. I'll try to keep the requests to a minimum for a while. Have a wonderful and blessed week!
