Natural consequences

So there is no school strike today.

The labour dispute was with the support workers, custodians, secretaries and special needs educators, not the teachers, but most boards decided that full school closures would be implemented in the event of a walkout.

At 9 pm last night the media announced, well ahead of the midnight deadline, that a tentative agreement had been reached and all children are expected to go to school on Monday.

According to Twitter, mass panic ensued. Naturally the kids were disappointed. The parents, especially those with small children and daycare/afterschool care were overjoyed.

Killing the blog

Yesterday and all this week so far has been crap.

If one more thing happens I will lose my mind. Again.

My Pity Party in full progress.

So last night, in utter desperation and with no one to cry to, I emailed a friend from the parking lot at a rink at 10 o’clock at night that I was thinking of quitting blogging.

This morning he responded with:

Don’t kill your blog!

So basically, it’s his fault that this post is Pointless Stupidity. 🙂

Anyway you wanna know about all my issues?

Disclaimer: it’s a lot of whining and complaining, so feel free to exit now.

About quitting, or not

I realize some of you follow LA and she just did a whole thing on quitting last week. But this topic hit me upside the head last night so I’m pausing my pity party for a moment to mention it.

Creepy, sneaky depressive moods

I can feel it coming, the depression. It’s creeping in. Taking hold, slowly, cell by cell.

I try to figure out the source and stop the flow but I don’t know what it is – Genetics? Seasonal changes? Hormones?

Let’s blame hormones. 🙄

What did you wear in your 1980s highschool days?

Addressing all GenXers:

I want to know what you wore when you were in highschool during the 80s. (This is for research purposes for a piece I’m writing.)

Here we go again: the job search is back on

The other day we did something fun about teeth brushing. Click here to see that post.

If you guessed number 1 for my teeth brushing habit,  you guessed right. Quite a few of you do it the same way! But some of you do it differently and I’m sorry to say, you’re weird. 🙃

In other news, I wrote and deleted two blog posts for today. Boo. They were too long, too wordy, too inconsequential, too stupid.

How do YOU brush your teeth? :)

I saw this posted on social media in various places and thought it was fun! Let’s have some fun on a Friday afternoon…

1) How do YOU brush your teeth? Pick a number.

2) How do you think I brush my teeth? (Because my way is the right way… hahahaha) 🙂

How to have sex with your husband 1960-style

Ok so I came across this post in my WordPress reader and simply had to re-post it here for you. Because it is ABSOLUTELY… Brilliant? Ridiculous? Hilarious?

I’ll let you be the judge.

Disclaimer: if you’re a shrinking violet or shy about sexual matters, perhaps it might be best if you simply turn away from this post because the last thing I intend to do is annoy or offend anyone. I did insert a few commentary for your (and my) entertainment – to be taken with a grain of salt. 😉

PS Much of the world is still in this exact ‘state of mind’… (just saying).

Rambling about writing, family life and all-nighters

Yesterday’s office hours were a bit of a futsch.

Is that a word? If not, it is now. I made it up. It means, as per my definition, that writing didn’t happen to the degree I wanted it to.

Having said that, I wrote a lot the day prior and I got feedback from two people – one over email and one sitting beside me on the couch. 🙂
