I enjoyed Mel the Stirrup Queen's post on nose blowing today. You will have to read it. I have been blowing my nose and coughing up crud all week, that her analogy hit home. It is okay for us to constantly regurgitate the same thoughts and feelings because like crud in our lungs we have to get it out somehow. And for me, I can get it out here. And you fine folks read it and write encouraging words to let me know that someday I'll feel better and that it's okay and normal to feel the way I do. How often do we have the sniffles or feel under the weather? Quite often.
Not to get political or anything (I'm an independent and not a fan of Nancy Pelosi), but prior to the healthcare reform vote Nancy Pelosi said that "being a woman would no longer be a preexisting condition". Frankly I never knew it was, and I resent that she said it was. I still don't really understand what she meant by that. I thought women usually live longer than men. And we know that men are total babies when they are sick.
A quote that my hubby is famous in his family for quoting when they get together is: "Attitudes are contagious. Is yours worth catching?" And then the caveat, "Be careful what you catch". His family always groans when he shares this, but it's true. So, while I don't want anyone to catch the cold I currently have, I do hope that while I'm running around chasing my dream of having a child I can have an attitude that's worth catching. And on the days I don't, I can turn to so many of you to help nurse me back to full strength.
