G20 is here and it has brought out the WORST in my awesome city! I am so disappointed in the people who I share the city with. There are protesters all over the downtown. Protesting peacefully is fine, but this is out of control. Police cruisers are being set on fire all over the city. The riot police are out in full force. Protesters have been breaking the store front windows of thousands of stores and then taking stuff out of the stores and throwing it on the street. A furniture store was totally robbed and now there are chairs and couches in the middle of the road on Yonge Street (our main street!). It is really disgusting. I only live a couple of blocks from where all this shit is happening and I am feeling trapped! All of the subways, buses, roads and stores in the area are in lock down. Protesters are even throwing golf balls at the police horses trying to trip them! That is so sad! Seriously, what is wrong with people!
I am a 31 year old teacher with an awesome husband and an amazing Chihuahua pup. We are a happy family right now but we are excited that I am FINALLY pregnant after a year and a half of trying and fertility treatments. I am still nervous (ok...paranoid) that something is going to go wrong. I find this blog a great place to find support and relate to people who are going through similar struggles!
