Welcome! Another weekend, another coffee date. This week we can meet up at my favorite coffee shop/comic book store… Villainous Grounds. I am about to meet a friend (hi Violet!) there in real-life… so the more virtual friends, the better!
It has been a pretty uneventful week here. Work continues to be busy as I train the new counselor. It is going well, though. It is just a lot for her to learn. She is going to start seeing patients herself next week (with me observing). I fully expect for her to be on her own the week after that. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!
We had some rain the past few days but today looks to be shaping up to be beautiful. We have girl scouts this afternoon and we’re meeting in the park so we will get to enjoy some of this sunshine and warmth.
The St. Louis Cardinals, after attaining first place in their division, have gotten themselves into a four game losing streak. Our bullpen (which I know refer to as the “blowpen”) sucks. Our starting pitchers are maintaining six to seven great innings and then the relievers come in and ruin it. Last night, our starting pitcher pitched NINE innings allowing only two hits and zero runs. Guess what? We lost in the 13th inning because of our sucky relief pitchers. Also didn’t help that our manager left that last reliever in way too long after he started to struggle. Well, some offense would have been helpful last night, too. Ugh.
My kids are officially on summer break! Let the all-day bickering begin…
So… catch me up. What would you tell me if we were having coffee?
