Currently for September


Well here we sit in BC.  We should be starting back to school tomorrow, but we are out on strike, waiting for a settlement to our contract negotiations.

I'm not about to get into all the gory details, but we went out on strike with 2 weeks left in the school year last June, and nothing has been settled because the government really wants to destroy the teachers' union.

So both my own children, and my students are not starting school tomorrow.

I'm married to a teacher, and I live in the most expensive city in Canada.  Thankfully my parents are able to help my husband and I financially so we won't lose our home.

But anyway, I'd rather discuss more pleasant things like my new favourite TV show - Outlander - I loved those books and I'm really enjoying the show.  

Hawaii would be a great place to vacation right now.

but I've been to Hawaii a few times, so placed I'd love to visit include Belize - which is supposed to have some amazing diving, Thailand - which has amazing beaches, and India which has amazing culture - one day for sure.

Thanks for stopping by today!


  1. Hang in there! I went on strike last year so I know a little bit about what you are going through- although our strike only lasted 5 days. The parents in our community were incredibly supportive of the teachers. I hope that you and your husband stay strong and I'm thankful that your parents are able to help you financially. I hope that things get settled very soon.

    Best wishes- I will be thinking about you!


  2. Outlander has been on my reading wishlist. I can't wait to start it! I'll wait to watch the series until after I read the books :).

    I'm sorry to hear about the strike and I hope it gets resolved soon.

  4. Thanks for your comment on my blog! I love yours too! Geez! I'm sorry about the strike and uncertainty! Good thoughts are being sent your way! I hope you get to Belize. It's an amazing place. Google ATM CAVE IN BELIZE. It wasn't fun to get into but it's amazing!

  5. Wow! I keep hearing bits and pieces about the strike. That's awful. I hope everything gets worked out soon.
