Well, well, well.

I'm still sick, but I've torn myself out of bed for a teeny bit because laying down was just painful for me. I don't have any idea with what I'm sick with, as I show no other symptoms than just being ~out~ of any sort of energy supply. I have no appetite, no thirst, no nothing. Which I'm sure isn't helping out things. My husband finally just made me something to eat last night, skipping the whole "You hungry? Want me to make you something?" "No, that's okay, thanks." conversation we were having all day yesterday. I haven't eaten anything today either, but I've been staying hydrated. I'll eat dinner though.

Thanks for all the input on the circumcision post! I was quite surprised how 'controversial' it really was. I did turn off comments though, as it's all been discussed. And some of the comments were getting quite, well, strong. As I've always said, I love to debate issues, but my rule is "argue ~YOUR~ side, don't attack the other side" and that's not what was happening in many of the comments - some I choose to publish and some I didn't. The ones I did allow I thought the author wasn't trying to be rude, it just came out that way.

Speaking of "argue ~your~ side, don't attack the other side", why do you think people end up attacking the other side instead of simply sticking to their side? I feel the same way at sporting events - root for you team, don't dis the other team. But so many people do it. And honestly, it's what will drive me to simply walk away from a debate. Why can't I just be told ~why~ they believe in their own choices instead of only telling me why they think my choice is wrong? Once someone starts down this road, I simply end it with them because 99% of the time? It's just not worth it. They are just more against my decision/opinion then they are for their own. And that's not a debate.

I just looked at my google reader and I have 342 posts to read. Oh boy. I'm going to go ~try~ to get through some right now.

I agree with "Argue your side, don't attack the other side" SO MUCH. I have never understood that. I feel everyone is entitled to their religious preferences, political views, whether or not they circumsize their son, the color of their kitchen, etc.

I will give you my thoughts on said topic (if I'm asked!) but I won't cut you down if you disagree with me.

People do that because it is human nature :). I blame evolutional biology for the way brains are wired. Cool logic is not first instinct!

I hope you start feeling better Nancy. That little guy needs all the nutrition he can get! Such a shitty time of year too. I've been trying my damndest not to get sick. I want to be as healthy as I can be for my IVF!

I'm sorry you are feeling so icky. And I didn't know you'd want to go to my shower. Seriously, it's my mom, grandma, sisters, a couple friends, my mother's friends and not much more. I didn't want to inflict that on you. Nor the drive.

If you really need to see me, I've got a meeting in the Springs next Tuesday morning. :)

But I feel horrible that I upset you.

I think people do it because they are afraid of being different. They fear that if everyone doesn't agree with their thoughts then they will stand out... *gasp* So they try to tear down your opinions and make you see things their way so that we can all be the same...

A lot of people also find it very difficult to have a different opinion yet still be "friends" (or even friendly) with someone.

Bumma - I didnt get to reply, I'm just getting to that post. Maybe next time :) tho I really enjoyed reading the replies, I wished I knew now what I didnt know then.

Jewels said...

Jen said...

I hope you start to feel better soon. I hate being sick. When I don't feel good all I want to eat is french fry's from McDonalds and Red,White and Blue frozen pops. You should try that. :)

Oh...thanks for the email the other day.

theclam said...

I agree - a debate is sticking to *your* side of the subject. Anything else is argueing...

Feel better soon honey!!

I agree. I've never gotten into the whole debate thing simply because it always tends to end up being an argument, which is very frustrating.

Thanks for doing that post though! I had never even considered the possibility of just letting my husband make the decision. Shows you how much I have to learn about letting go of some of the responsibility!

Hope you feel better soon!
