Weekend Coffee Share

I haven’t been around much lately. Either I’m working or tutoring or tutoring or working, but either way I don’t seem to have much time for me; which is really starting to suck. I was recently told that I work too much, which I’m starting to believe is true.

I started playing PokemonGo this week and I definitely see why it’s addicting. But for me it’s also a wee bit frustrating and by a wee bit, I mean a lot. There never seem to be any Pokemon around.

Let’s Lend a Helping Hand

These past few days have been a bit rough.

A coworker who I can’t say I know intimately got the phone call no parent should ever get on Wednesday afternoon. She has had two children a boy, 19 and a girl , 12. Her son was in a car accident and she needed to get to the hospital right away. After getting there she learned that her son passed away.

When we, her work family,¬†found out about on Thursday it was perhaps the most solemn and sad day I had experienced in a long time. Although I don’t have children the news hit me like a ton of bricks. My heart sank. Several people cried.

Her son, Tanner, in just two short weeks was about to head to Marine Boot Camp. Apparently, Tanner always wanted to be a Marine (Ooh Rah) since he was child. His mom said that he thought they were they best and that he wanted to be a part of that.

I tell you this because she needs a bit of help. A GoFundMe account has been established to help pay for funeral expenses. A quote was given of $12,000 and at this time she’s not quite half there. If you are able and willing to donate any amount to help her it would be greatly appreciated. Every little bit helps.

Thank you in advance.
