I telework two days a week. I was talking with my coworker on our weekly call and mentioned I picked up a new fidget spinner for the home office. She asked me why I didn’t get one for the office. So, I sent her the link.

What A Difference Five Days Make

Last week, the tracks had our area having a Hurricane Labor Day. Dorian kept moving east and slowing down that now we’re not even sure if we’re going to have much impact from the storm at all. Still concerned for friends and family on the east coast of Florida. The Bahamas and probably the Carolinas look like they’re going to get pasted.

I saw a friend on FB ask “Do I want to be a victim or an asshole?” Essentially, she was asking when praying for divine intervention, did she want to pray for the hurricane to hit other people so she and her family would be spared? I’m more on the if you’re going to pray, pray for those who can least bear the burden.
