I received a phone call this morning that shook my world quite a bit. My younger sister was pregnant with her second child. She lost the baby on Saturday and didn't find out until Tuesday. I dressed quickly and went to get house and spent the morning with her. We talked about everything. Her new job, my job, her husband, how her daughter was...

Thank you @niffler and @psyria_delight . You ladies are incredible.  Today she had the fetus removed and is recovering at home as best she can. Emotional and heart broken with every right. But I will keep checking in and taking gifts to help her, her 3 year old, and the husband.

I was driving home during a break in the rain when I spot this guy limping along the street. I had to stop and get a hold of him. He was wearing a purple harness and his limp said that he had already been clipped by a car tonight. He was such a sweet boy. I called emergency and while waiting for then, a car...

Aw man!! He’s lucky you found him.

Good for you for taking the time to care. There's not enough of that in this world anymore, unfortunately.

But it's no time to relax. I have to much to do and not enough time before work to do it. Clean the apartment, dishes, laundry, menu descriptions, pursue volunteering again... I have hated that my former kitchen snatched me away from volunteering at Riley as that has been such a goal for me for such a long time. I will be at work...

Hope you get proper time to celebrate you! Happy trip around the sun!

I walked out of my job this morning. The environment became to toxic for me and my frustration finally took over.

The GM appoached me this morning in a confrontation that I thought would have been civil. Instead it ended in talking down to me, talking snarky, and in general belittling me for procedures set by our chef that are out of my control rather...

Only 45 hours a week?  Lol.  Get some sleep bro.  And well done.  There is only so much crap one has to take

I don't know what to do. I am a chef. Being a chef has been a passion of mine for so long. A kitchen was my first job. I was a salad and dessert chef at 17 for an Italian restaurant. When I left the industry for a few years to work for Amazon, Maplehurst, and Subaru I had dreams of the kitchen. So...

@user8992 I have great recipes for the food truck idea and am looking deeper into the cost. If I get one, it's a road trip to friends from SG for food and community

Truer words...

The tragedy in Humboldt is still fresh, but young players are leaving sticks out for their brothers who have passed so that they may always have a spare wherever they are and can play. In deepest sympathy and utmost respect for for our cousins up north. #humboltbroncos #humboldtstrong

Empathy is the most important human feature

My heart breaks this morning. I am sitting here at work just wanting to curl into a corner and cry. Yesterday a van drove into a square killing people enjoying some sun and foid in Germany then the driver took their own life. Acts like this are becoming far to common place all over and murder splashes across the front page of the paper on...

This is really sad. I had no idea these events took place. I tell people in my life constantly to be appreciative that you have life, whether or not it may not be the way you want...it is still a blessing to be alive. I constantly am faced with challenging things in my life, but I am always grateful to be alive. Thank you for sharing this post.

The danger ranger finally gave out on Monday leaving me to scramble Tuesday morning into finding a quick vehicle with no money down nor trade in since the truck is static. I qualified with much against me for this little Chevy Aveo. Decent little car. But a big change from driving my truck the last 12 years.

Congratulations on the acquisition!

The venue was amazing. There were seventy people nominated for this award with only 8 winning. From the starting profile, I knew I had no chance lol. We have some incredible people that exemplify Hoosier Hospitality and to be nominated with them was an incredible honor. I shook hands and received a hug from The mayor! The event was a 4 hour event/ dinner/ celebration
