Messages from staff members...


Hey guys! It’s Milinda and here’s what’s been going on during my quarantine... The kids, pup Ollie, and I went to Houston TX to stay with my husband, Marvin for a couple weeks. That has now been extended, which gives us a little more time with him. Fortunately, there is a pool here, so we’ve been able to utilize that to fight boredom and insanity. The kids also have video games, card games, family board games and their school work to pass the time. Everyone is healthy as far as we know and getting along most of the time. They miss school and friends and I miss work, coworkers, the students and of course the coffee shop. I hope you’re all doing well.

Pespective During These Simple (boring) Times

Take time to enjoy the boring stuff.
