If We Were Having Coffee… 5/21/17

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?

Thanks to Emily at Nerd in the Brain for hosting the Weekend Coffee Share (created by Part-time Monster)! Stop in and have a cup with our other participants at the linkup here.

  1. Your bill sounds like the Mariners. Since starting picture are the DL list, it has a nightmare like 10 opposition g team Mark Dr none. Yet, they very close to 500 again

  2. As a Rockies fan I feel like I should give you some space before commenting, but I’m not! At least the Cards won one of the series…. My daughter has a week of school left, and then the endless coordination between camps, friends and grandparents begins… Working parents and summers is so hard. I wish she could have the carefree hours at the pool while fighting with her sibling like I did. Now, I’m off to be jealous of this “real friend” of yours!

    1. Ugh, don’t even get me started on the Cards. We have so much talent but we’re still struggling. Kudos to the Rockies. They played a good series. Summer is hard as a working parent. I need to sit down and plan some vacation days. Hey, if we lived locally I’m sure the two of is would meet up for coffee ☺
