Yesterday I updated our calendar with the newly scheduled kids’ activities.
Despite the covid numbers rising in Toronto, youth sports is gearing up to get those kids back to the rink.
This is 🇨🇦 after all…
So my calendar is looking a bit fuller again. Which is all fine and dandy, except for the fact that some of the practices are at 9 pm. Do people not realize that this is my bedtime? 🙄
But few things are scheduled on weekends. Weekends remain blissfully empty, namely because there are no games yet. All return to play is for practices only – both hockey and ringette are looking at game schedules to be released sometime in early January.
We shall see.
But this new schedule suits me fine. If only I had some plans on my suddenly much freer weekends…but the province is back to shutting things down again and frankly, I just don’t have it in me to face whatever situation I may encounter with all the diverse idiocy or covidiocy out there…
So I sit here and socialize with my internet peeps. That would be you. ❤
You want a school update?
The school situation blew up and I don’t wanna talk about it. 😭
Ok fine, here’s one little rant:
The early grade kids who are in French Immersion have French teachers. My kid, who is in grade 8, the final year before high school, who depends on credits to get into high school, has no teacher at all. French or English.
How is it Kindergarten kids have French teachers when they have plenty of time to catch up over the next 6, 7 years but an 8th grader who depends on credits to enter high school, who already has 4 years of French under her belt, has no teacher at all?
I hate bureaucracies. 😞
So that’s that. Blah.
You may have noticed I finally got around to posting the first part of a romantic story involving the beach guy I met a couple of weeks ago. My protagonist is called Samantha, and I named the beach guy Robert. To read the first installment, click here. Those of you who read and commented already, thank you very much for your feedback. I’m excited to continue this story, thanks to you!
I have another story I want to post, with a different couple. They are called Sabrina and Nick. This one will have some inkling toward a topic that may not be everyone’s cup of tea, as I’ve mentioned in this recent post. But I’m challenging myself to broaden my writing horizons, so hold on to your hat. I hope to post that story on Thursday.
As always, thank you for reading, and…see you in the comments!
