    Sorry Canal. Even if it’s not “your” loss, it’s still hard to not be there to support your partner.

    Thank you <3 That's exactly it. I know his brother is going so that helps me feel a little better but I still wish I could be two places at once.

    I know this isn't the issue at hand, but can you take an uber so you can stay a bit longer at the board meeting?

    I had that thought too, but the Uber/Lyft density here is not good enough to be more reliably faster than me walking, esp with evening traffic. (I am a very fast walker.). We tried to end the meeting early so someone could give me a ride but the discussion turned to immigration so ... I walked. I had been there for over two hours for meetings so I’m fine with having left 17 minutes early.

    ETA but Lucy was the last dog at daycare so I have more guilt, damnit. Pouring a glass of wine now.

    No guilt allowed! Today was just Lucy's turn to get to say hello to all of the other pet people.

    Think of it as, Lucy was able to have access to all the best toys and all the staff attention for a little bit. Complete win.

    Not sure exactly where I would out this, but this morning a few teachers were late because of train problems. We later learned it was because a father committed suicide while jumping in front of a train while holding his 5 year old daughter. Thank Jeff Goldblum she only suffered minor injuries, but the father was declared dead at the scene. It was just 3 stops from work, on the same train I take. We don't know the family (as far as we know), but it just hit kind of hard to read about something like that, especially as a teacher with so many students close to that age in the same area. It wasnt my personal loss, but still felt it.

    That's horrible, really the stuff of nightmares. Hugs.

    Oh wow that's horrific. I'm glad she was physically ok, though I imagine there's going to be a lot for her to deal with emotionally.

    That's so devastating. I can't imagine what friends/ family must be going through

    JFC that poor kid. I'm so glad she's okay.

    What the fuck is wrong with these parents that feel like they have the right to kill their children along with them? It’s like they don’t view their child as their own person, but just their property to take out with themselves. I’m glad she survived. That poor girl.

    I know that’s likely an oversimplification of the situation, but I hear this and all I can feel is anger.

    I know. I'm so glad she's ok, but also it makes me angry that now she has to suffer with this for the rest of her life. She doesn't deserve that. I'm also angry that he felt he had the right to take her away from her mother. I'm not sure if the parents were together or not, but the article mentioned that the mother met her at the hospital, so she wasnt present at the scene. My guess is he had her for visitation over the weekend and was supposed to be dropping her off at school. But yeah, that is some traumatic stuff she has to now navigate and my heart just hurts for her.

    WTF that poor, poor baby. Why do parents insist on taking their children with them? I don't get it.

    That is terrifying. The poor child and family and community. This resonates for so many.

    Chickens Laying Eggs seems too happy, so I guess I’ll put my sadness here.

    The baby had no heartbeat at today’s visit. Measured 8 weeks and 1 day so must have just happened within the last couple of days. Had a heartbeat at 6 weeks 4 days, chances were so slim something would go wrong. Said there wasn’t anything I could have done, we don’t know why. I have to take medication to pass everything. Obviously we’re very sad. Going to hug E extra tight tonight.
