Thursday April 21st

The personal bit:

I learned that a friend and her husband are getting divorced. This sent me reeling. I don’t know why. Perhaps because they seemed so happy; or maybe because she never complained; or maybe it’s because they’re rich and you think the rich have perfect lives. Whatever the case, it’s really made me sad. Their split is amicable, they are both still very much friends and doing the split fairly, and he will always take care of her and the kids. She’s okay, the kids are fine, plus she’s gorgeous and will make some lucky guy VERY happy in the future. But her heart hurts, and I feel for her. This kind of news always makes you look inward and question the stability of relationships. Mine’s fine, btw. Some days we hate each other, but there’s no hate without love. It’s when you get indifferent that things start to unravel…

Another thing that is really sending me into a tailspin is the VSB budget cuts. They are cutting a TON of things, and the folks at our school are particularly annoyed at the cancelling of our band and strings program. I don’t give a rat’s ass about that – what I’m worried about is the removal of the anti-homophobia position! This is the person who prepared the school for our child’s entry, trained the teachers, spoke up when we had no voice, stood up for us when we didn’t understand something. This is the person we relied on to guide us through these elementary years, when our child was at great risk of bullying for being different. Without this person, we can’t be assured of our child’s safety. I wrote a letter to the VSB Board and to our MLA, and I will attend the Monday night budget meeting. I hate politics but when it comes to my kids, I will do whatever it takes to protect them, to make their school hours safe. I’m sorry if your child doesn’t get to play in the school band. Will you be sorry if my trans child gets beat up in the bathroom?

Stuff that happened:

Nothing out of the ordinary came up (that I know of!). So let’s look at what will happen today:

Jack will play all of the songs for the Name Those Tunes game in the 2 hours prior to the game play. So between 6 & 8 they will play the 8am songs. Between 10 & 12 they will play the 12pm songs. Between 2 & 4 they will play the 4pm songs. That should help you out, so pay attention if you’re playing!
