Depression is a stupid, evil thing, isn’t it.
I need to find a way to push it away, far away. I wish I could stay in bed and do nothing for the next week.
But…life, and all that. Blah.
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.

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.
