Happy weekend! What are you up to? I have no plans this weekend and after a month of nonstop activity – my friend’s memorial in St. Louis, Father’s Day, my friends’ wedding in Chicago, end-of-the-school-year activities and getting the kids transitioned into summer, throwing a 4th of July party and hosting out-of-town guests, and throwing joanie a 4th birthday party — I’ve got nothing planned this weekend and I am psyched about it! I’m going to finally finish this book and then start this one, which I’ve heard is really good, and is finally off my hold list at the library.
If you haven’t been following the news, Trump and his administration is still god-awful and they’re still separating families at the borders and locking them up, kids included, in cages. Tonight, in cities across the country, is a nation-wide rally/protest/vigil that I urge you to take part in if you can. Again and again and again, we have had reason to be taking the streets. I’ve protested so many times in the past 2-1/2 years, I’ve lost count. Tonight, I think Drew is going to go in my place while I stay home with the kids (he hasn’t been to a big protest yet; I’m usually the designated marcher in the family when these things are too late or too crowded to bring the kids and one of us has to stay home with them). Anyway, here’s info about it, and here’s info specific to the NYC rally.
