Some days it is hard to be a grown-up. Today was an example of that. I got my flu shot. Now I don't have a fear of needles. But I hate getting one. I think everyone hates needles don't they? Fear of needles is pretty common but I am not afraid of them. I just hate them! My kids and I get our flu shot every year and every year I go to sit in the chair and try to be a good mom, sitting there bravely, but inside I want to lie down on the floor and ask someone to hold my hand while I take a big breath then shed a few tears after it is over.
I have just started looking into my genealogy and is it ever fascinating. I came across something that was so cool. It turns out one of my girlfriends and I have the same great, great, great, great grandparents. I knew she was into genealogy so I e mailed her asking if she knew the name of her family that came over on the Princess Royal in 1854. It turned out to be Malpass, the same as mine! So far I have gone back to 1698. Cool stuff!
