Yesterday’s Vlog and Today’s Thoughts

by , under personal, Pirate

Oops – I forgot to post the Vlog here yesterday:

So tell me, what was YOUR all time favorite costume… and how badly do you want me to get TheBoy on the Vlog?

This morning, as I pulled up to the elementary school, the street ahead was filled with utility trucks. Water main. And as soon as I dropped off the kids, I knew. I knew I was going to get a phone call telling me to pick up my kids.

Which I just did. They’re smart, ending the day just before lunchtime would have started…

I know, not many thoughts today. I’m a little sidetracked by the news of a shooting at LAX (gunman shot someone, presumably before the security checkpoint), and it’s hard not to feel terrible for everyone who was there at the time of the shooting, the poor people who just landed at LAX and are dealing with this mess, and everyone being evacuated. What a mess.

And I wish I was a better person, but I admit that I’m worried about how much more of a nightmare this is going to make traveling later this month- we’re going to be flying out to see my parents for Thanksgiving.

It’s just frustrating, to know that what’s likely one sick individual will probably result in a knee-jerk reaction that won’t make things safer, just more convoluted.
