On my way home I took a planned detour over to the Askews place to have a mini girls night. We had dinner, hung out and talked, made brownies and of course watched Billy. We acted out the whole movie. Sadly three of the four of us (moe, charlie, morgan and c) fell asleep. Boy, are we not in college anymore. Oh well it was a great time.

My youth pastor and his wife moved back to SD from Arizona last May but I hadn't had the opportunity to visit with them until this weekend. They are expecting their first little one in just a few months, it is so exciting. So on Sunday morning I headed over to their house to drop off a few things for them and had the chance to talk for a bit. It was a little strange since I am a different person than I was in H.S. and I really want them to know the real me. The big difference is I smile and laugh a lot more. I have fun, and am comfortable with who I am.
Since Paul and I have been married almost 5 years and since they were unable to make it to the wedding I really want Paul to meet them since they have had such a positive impact on my life.

The (save) ferris wheel at night.
This is what you'd get if the Scarecrow and Tin Man had a child.
I'm really not sure.

For the next three days I'll be at a training at our main campus in L.A.. It deals with how to work with problem kids and situations. It expires every 3 years, so this will be my third time taking it. It used to be somewhat interesting when half the time was spent learning restraints and take-downs. Now that part has been reduced to about an hour with the rest of the time being lectures and role-playing exercises. I hate having to get up and perform skits in front of everyone, but at least I can scare all the new hires with my horror stories.
I should really go to bed. It's 12:30am and I have to be out the door by 6:30am at the latest. I really wish I was tired right now.

On Friday I picked James up at 9am. Helped Moe get everything into the van and then she headed to drop of the other two chillins while I headed down to SD. We went to the mall to grab a bite to eat and walked around a little bit. Then we went over to my moms. I set all of his stuff up so he could take his afternoon nap. We played, went in the pool, and ran some quick errands.
Saturday was more of the same. My mom bought James a cute pool floaty and James had a blast splashing and swimming. My mom and I did some chores, cleaned out old papers and labeled "the library".
I talked to Erin and she said that she was available for lunch Sunday. James and I met up at her place. The kids played for a little while and Erin and I talked. Erin went to Subway and picked us up some sandwiches. Everyone ate and then we hung out a little more before it was time to take James back to my moms for his afternoon nap.
My mom and I had an early dinner and then it was time to head back to Moe's. When I got there I got James ready for bed and put him down. Then Sarah and I watched a few cartoons with Abby before we got her ready for bed. After Abby went down Sarah and I just hung out talked and watched some TV
So the O's bring in pitching Mahatma Leo Mazzone to help the staff. The results? Baltimore ranks 28th in the majors with a 5.59 starters' ERA and 25th in bullpen ERA, and they're on pace to give up almost 900 runs this season. You can't hemorrhage runs like that and be a team of consequence.
Midseason Grade: F
Boston Red Sox
It's by no means a secure one, but Boston's lead in the East is the largest of any divisional pace car in the AL. They're scoring runs in bunches (thanks mostly to MVP-caliber seasons from David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez and the on-base chops of Kevin Youkilis), and the front of the bullpen (i.e., Jonathan Papelbon and Mike Timlin) has been exceptional. The back end of the rotation remains a concern, but expect that to be addressed at the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline.
Midseason Grade: A-

Bradley decided to have a BBQ to celebrate his birthday this year. We got to the 'rents house a bit early to see if anything extra needed to be set up or any last supper market runs needed to be made.
Everyone had a great time hanging outside on the couches, cooking up all kinds a meat. Natasha (sorry if spelled wrong) whom Bradley met while in D.C. a number of years ago came. She is very sweet. We talked a bit and I really liked her and we both LOVE corn. After BBQing we went inside and the majority played a poker tournament, while some conversed and watched Punked and a show called NEXT.
After poker about a dozen of us headed back outside since the house was so HOT! Even with three fans on in the living room and one in the hallway. Everyone had a good time.
Happy Birthday (once again) Bradley!
