It's raining in the Nook

I was able to walk over to Brewberry's this morning. It was rather nasty out there, but since I was wearing Lidoderm, I wasn't in much pain and was able to enjoy the walk. I finished my first draft of the post for
Blogging against Disablism Day

I think it's going to be good. I've revised some and will look at it tomorrow to make sure I like it.

The Casting Crowns concert is tonight. I'm definitely looking forward to this one. I will have to leave Julio at home so that I have some room and can be comfortable. I don't needc to worry about the furriness laying onn my foot (ouch!).

I need to do laundry, but that's just really not on the list of things I want to deal with today. I also need to study for my Art of Listening test that's Monday. Someone, anyone, save me!

Hugs!
Nickie

Ooo, Casting Crowns! Can I come? I would so love to see them in concert! Tell me how it is when you get back and write again, okay?

Glad you weren't in too much pain and could enjoy the walk. That is definitely a good thing. Hugs!

Isms, isms everywhere!
Disablism? I'm not even sure what that is. We have so many isms in the lexicon today: racism, sexism, ageism, federationism (sorry, couldn't resist)...I'm just not sure what it all means. The other day a friend told me that she was accused of ageism simply because she said that in her experience those who had the worst typeso f attitude towards her were younger people. She wasn't making a judgment, she was just stating her experience. anyway, maybe I'll go check this disablism thing out, but I'm just not comfortable with the word.

The term in the US is ablism, but the day is organized by someone in the U.K. Basically, it's discrimination on the basis of disability. I agree that sometimes things do get out of hand, but hopefully enough good can come out of days like this.
