Company Girl Coffee

Come on in for "coffee!" I don't drink coffee - just never developed a taste for it - but I need some caffeine! An ice cold coca-cola will do.

Last weekend, my husband and I drove to New Braunfels for the Wurstfest, so I was gone most of the weekend, and it has sure made this week feel long for me. The tasks that usually get done on the weekend (cleaning, laundry, etc.) had to be done during the week in addition to a full work week, grading, cooking, and all the usual things with famly and a full-time job.

Not only was the week long, we had a horrible tragedy at work/school. One of our sixth grade students and two of her little brothers died in a fire early Thursday morning. We've had crisis response teams on campus to help both staff and students process this loss. The residents of five apartments are now homeless, and one family is dealing with the loss of 3 of their 4 children, one of whom passed today at the hospital. It's just unfathomable. I can't imagine. I didn't have the student in class, but one of my good friends did (and of course several other co-workers). I really worry about the second-graders who knew the little brother, too. I guess writing this is just one way I can work through my own feelings about this terrible event.

On a happier note, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1 comes out this Thursday, and I am going to the midnight showing. I have no idea how I will manage at work Friday, but I'm so excited about it! I hope everyone has a safe, fun weekend.

I never got into drinking coffee either. Maybe I should take it up. Maybe the caffeine would do me good. lol

I don't drink coffee either. It is diet Coke or hot chocolate for me! What a sad story. Praying for that family!
