last night and got the H1N1 vaccination. It took us just under 3 hours to get it. The kids were pretty good but near the end we had all had enough. It was around 8pm when we got out of there and we were all hungry and tired. I took us to McDonalds for a reward and then came home. We all had showers and then to bed. I wanted everyone clean after that ordeal.
When I picked Travis up from school this morning I was talking to another mom and as I was talking to her another mom came and heard that I had taken my family to get the shot. She then proceeded to say that she 'will be waiting to see how many people die from this shot before I make up my mind.' WTF?! I felt like a knife stabbed me in the heart. How cruel and heartless can someone be to say such a thing. I was so dumbfounded that I couldn't even move. Then the two moms started saying that there was a show on 60 Minutes of how the Swine Flu of 1976 killed more people than saved...and on and on and on they went. I gathered Travis up when he came outside and went to the van when the wave of emotion hit me. I am still tearing up writing this and thinking about how I wish I would have gathered my jaw and heart off the ground and said something back to her about how what she said was totally uncalled for. I did the research too and there is so much conflicting information and the pros for me outweighed the cons. I didn't make the choice lightly.
Okay moving on as I am too emotional to keep talking about that. This afternoon I did a layout from Sketches again. I am not submitting these, just doing them for fun. The paper clips up top spell out SCARY and I had fun with rub-ons, stamping and getting back to doing what I love to do. The writing says Grandma & Grandpa took Travis and Jacie to the Calgary Stampede on July 3rd, 2009. This was the first time ever for the kids.
I did this layout a long time ago, but never posted it. This is of Kael around 6 to 7 months old I think.
Anyway, time to make supper...tonight it is soft taco's! YUM!
