End of October

Last Monday, a student got arrested at school, on Tuesday we had two fights (2 separate groups of students), on Thursday, we had conferences and then I went to a neighborhood discussion group so I didn’t get home until like 9:30 pm, and then the weekend was packed. It was quite the week!

Weekly Things

Something I Learned: There are about 650 Stradivarius instruments around, and they’re named after the musicians who play them.

Something I’m Into:  Westworld!!!! It’s a new show on HBO that’s similar to Lost and Game of Thrones.

Something I Appreciate: Having the time, health, money, and general ability to do fitness classes. I do aerial on Mondays, a strength training class on Wednesdays, and Irish dancing on Sundays, and I’m really glad that I can do all of them. They not only keep my body healthy, but they also keep my mind fresh and always working.

attachment-1-44A few weeks ago, I did something to a tendon in my leg while doing aerial, and it was whining at me after aerial on Monday, so I iced it, and Jane thought I was conveniently not moving just so that she could cuddle. Look at her being all, “Don’t you just love me so much???”attachment-1-43Neighborhood discussion about racial issues. A few months ago, a bunch of neighbors put up “Thank You Local Police” signs, and didn’t realize that, considering the timing, it would be interpreted as a threat to our black neighbors. Duh. So we gathered to discuss it and learn.attachment-1-46^This right here is an open window. It was 72 degrees on Friday, and I got to nap with my window open.
