Good morning! I did work yesterday after all. Just too busy. And I am on duty for psycho social help. Mondayevening my beeper went off. A young boy of 13 hanged himself. He was rushed to hospital and at the intensive care. I had to arrange psychological help for his family and for the school the boy is attending, the school his 10 year old sister is attending and the sportclub he is a member of. Yesterday morning I got a call he will not make it, so I had to step up the support. Very sad, my heart goes out to the boy and his family. What on earth makes a 13 year old want to take his life!

So no way I could be ill, so painkillers kept me up. And since it is busy with my normal job as well, I decided I could use the time as well.

Today I feel a bit better. Working from home.

Good morning all. Ingrid, that's terrible. A 13 year old shouldn't have problems big enough to do that. Also not easy on you. Prayers to the family.
Nice clear skies this morning on the beach.
Have a great day all and be well

Good morning everyone. It's a balmy -3(-22) right now. Unfortunately I have to go into work today. No working in my jammies like yesterday. Oh well.

Good morning! That's a sad day for all, Ingrid. That poor family.

Last evening my scanner radio alerted about a fire in New Jersey at Marcal paper plant and they are still there this morning. Near you Linda?

It's 10 degrees warmer here than yesterday. We're going to start a warming trend tomorrow.

I'm going to gather my tax stuff today.

Good morning everyone. Worked on my son's taxes yesterday. The tax changes Trump made helped him get a bigger refund for 2018. I will tackle Mike's and mine when we get back from our European vacation.

Good morning. 26 degrees here in NE Ga, which trust me, is pretty darn cold for down here. It rarely gets below freezing.

Busy day today. I have to make mom's bday cake this morning, prep stuff for a huge salad, prep stuff for a big cheese/cracker tray, and have lunch ready for Mike's parents when they arrive. Then, I'll attend closing with Mom on her lake house. Then rush back to finish getting ready for her 80th bday party - a surprise. We expect about 36 people at my brother/sister in laws.

Ingrid - so sad about the 13 year old.
