Racing Into Tuesday

Ladybird lived up to her name as we flew through town this morning. I was a bit of a slow riser today and in no way thought I’d make this bus as a result!

I’m glad I grabbed a jacket today. I didn’t yesterday but was OK because I had long sleeves. Today, I’m braving short sleeves – and the AC is already blasting on the bus. (It’s only 57 now, though we’re headed for the mid-80s.)

Yesterday was gorgeous. While I had wanted to walk around for Opening Day, I couldn’t. I just had too much going on to stop for that long. Maybe next year. Sigh.

St. Louis always goes all out for baseball. Opening Day is always awash with pageantry. From one of our conference rooms, you can look right down into the stadium, something that is fun to do, especially on a day when so much other than baseball is going on inside! I heard Pujols homered. I did not hear the resulting fireworks. (Something I always did in my old office.)

The game didn’t start until 3 so the crowds weren’t the menace to rush hour that they normally are for a day game. Traffic didn’t seem any worse than any other day really. And they won. Yippee!

I get to go to a game in a few weeks. Looking very forward to it. While our summer weather is supposed to wrap up later this week, here’s hoping for some more of these pretty days later in the month.

Albert Pujols is one of my favorite players--such a great athlete, and seems to be a really nice guy off the field, too.

What a great benefit to working in that office! Have fun at the game. We are planning on going to several Nats games again this year, but they probably won't have as good of a record as the Cardinals (or anyone else for that matter). We went from the Royals to the Nats, I know the bad mojo isn't following us...is it? haha :)

Jayne -- LOVE AP, too!

Vicki -- Yeah, still got a few weeks before game day but enjoying the vibe the season has brought downtown in the meantime. :)
