Of two further positive COVID-19 cases in my kids’ school.
Fortunately (and I cannot believe I’m typing this) these individuals had been previously identified as close contacts of one of the preceding cases.
So no new infection right? Especially as they hadn’t been in school since they were notified.
Except that Massachussetts is running a fucking ludicrous “Test and Stay” programme which means if you remain symptom free after an exposure and agree to daily tests you get to stay in school.
So yet again my anxiety is spiking and I await the news on the test reports for my children – as they are tested every Monday..
No, they aren’t impressed by this. Especially #1 Son – he hates it. But they both understand why they have to do it.
But I have overcome one level of anxiety and have agreed to sign #1 Son up for Choir after school every Thursday from next week. This technicallycounts as an “out of school” extracurricular so we shall see how we go on this. I’m telling myself it’s only an extra 30 minutes – but it’s with the entire 4th and 5th grades. Or at least all those that want to sing – there’s no auditions. I can’t decide if this is a good thing or not.
But it’s still an additional level of exposure. I hope to God that they let the kids keep their masks on, else I will be yanking him out faster than you can say Jack Robinson.
That’s right ladies – we should just keep our legs crossed.
Which, you know, won’t backfire on us at all will it now? That won’t increase risk of rape – by strangers or by someone we know at all right?
I have an idea. If pregnancy is God’s will? So is erectile disfunction. So no abortion for people who need them? No Viagra for men who need it.
I’m done arguing about this.
There were marches today across the whole country. As I still have kiddos who are too young to get vaccinated, I couldn’t risk marching. But I’ve campaigned. I’ve supported. I’m keeping my information current.
The DOJ is actually suing Texas thankfully but this is the thin edge of the wedge. Other states agree. And the Supreme Court desperately wants to try and overturn Roe vs. Wade.
We cannot allow this to happen!
Because make no mistake. Banning abortion doesn’t stop abortion. It just prevents safe abortions.
Women. Will. Die.
And all those Republican men whose wives, mistresses and unwed teenagers (daughter’s or otherwise) will still be able to obtain them.
This is a disgusting piece of legislation designed to target and punish poor women and BIPOC women and other uterus possessors.
I’m angry and I firmly believe that we should all be.
