I don’t know, or care truthfully, why I didn’t write yesterday, however, today is another day and here I am writing, so it’s almost like it doesn’t matter that I missed a day or something. I know, weird right?
I am pretty sure that I have to go to the store today, I am not looking forward to it, but quarantine or no quarantine, I hate going to the supermarket on the weekend, even more, so today would be the day to go. I need a lot of this and a little of that so it isn’t exactly a wasted trip or anything. I have medication to pick up as well, which is essentially the reason I am going out at all, but I figured I might as well kill two birds with one stone, right?
I am still surrounded by doubt regarding what I should do with the Ducks and school. I know they haven’t released an official plan from the district, but I haven’t had these kids in there this long and not made a few friends in some places. From what I understand they want to go distance only, but fiscally that would be impossible. If you know nothing about the RCSD budget right now, just remember $50 million went “missing” which, as far as I am aware, has not yet been accounted for. Correct me if I am wrong, I want to be wrong here.
Laws for not sending my children to school aside for a moment, we will get back to those, I am very cognizant as to the social development that takes place in school and how vital it is for children to be around their peers. I am all ready to accept that fact, but I can’t help but thinking all of our kids are simply a smear on a petri dish and we will just see what happens at the end of the day.
Now, law. Some states are going to allow medical opt-out’s. I am fairly confident ol’ Excelsior won’t be one of them, but I can hope it is at least an option I can look at while I make my decision over the lives of my children over the funding that school districts get from them being there. Getting arrested over sending my children to school where there is a non-zero percent chance they will catch a disease that may not kill them, but me and a bunch of people I love dearly. Wonder which one I will pick when push comes to shove.
As for the rest of this morning, I am going to listen to Tenacious D and contemplate the infinite.
Peace and Light and shit.
