Yesterday was a bit of a mad rush. I spent the morning trying to find a daycare for Marin for next fall / winter in Vermont, only to find our outlook is BLEAK, as I had no idea this was something you were up to. were supposed to think long before your child actually did. go to daycare. My DMs were on fire with other compassionate mothers and sharing their own experiences of finding child care. It is a seriously flawed and flawed system that puts mothers, parents and caregivers in failure. And perhaps the most frustrating thing is that we know there are solutions to these problems, but our country is failing to implement them. I have a lot more thoughts on this, and I would be interested in yours as well, once I can put them together in a cohesive way I will write something with more on the subject.
In other news, we put our names on a vaccine cancellation list and got a call yesterday afternoon there were two spots open. We were able to get the picture of J&J and what a huge sigh of relief. I had a few minor side effects overnight, chills and low fever, but woke up, took Tylenol, and fell asleep again. I feel very grateful this morning and a little moved to be able to see friends and family that I haven’t seen in over a year. It is certainly a reason for joy.

Craig and I saw the documentary WeWork: or the making and breaking of a $ 47 billion unicorn on Hulu Last weekend. I’ve read a few articles about its downfall, but I’ve never followed the company so closely. In many ways, the documentary left me with more questions than when I started, but it’s worth watching.
