Went from work directly to my son’s birthday party, which started a bit before I was able to get there. Being late to your own son’s birthday party is not the best feeling in the world, but it’s not like it was avoidable; everyone involved knew I was going to be late.
And then I had to continue to be a teacher for a while while wrangling 20-some-odd elementary kids for two hours.
Then I went to see my mom. Who is home now. Hopefully for good.
Soon it will be bedtime.
Thank a union member if you have a three-day weekend. And if you don’t, consider unionizing.
