Rough day today. The day started off good. Got into the office and only got a little turned around taking the new route. Overall it went well. We’ve been catching up a bit after a very busy two weeks and I am really looking forward to the weekend.
By around eleven this morning the office was feeling a little odd and just before noon I learned that one of our coworkers, who sits very near me and I see many times a day, one of the relatively few that I actually know and have even spoken to outside of work, and one of only a couple that Dominica actually has met and even met his wife and has spent time with them – was killed in an automobile accident last night leaving behind his wife and two kids, one of which is between Liesl and Luciana’s ages. So the day was a very somber one.
I was able to come home slightly early today. I left around five and was home shortly after six. At least I had time to spend with the family this evening. We are fine, it was not someone that I was very close to and I have not been working there that long, but it still hits home.
