It’s been a busy week here at the YMCA. Many of the seasonal staff have already left, including all of the other hot shots. Since part of the hot shots’ job is to help any department that’s short staffed, this has kept me quite busy. The Y is still hoppin’, but the staff are all droppin’.
This will be a pretty quick little Week in Review. My sweetheart is visiting me at the Y, and it’s been a joy to spend a lot of face-to-face time with him in the real world. We’ve definitely been busy exploring around Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park: hence the late posting time.Here’s what I did:
The highlight of the week was definitely my birthday party, but that’s already been thoroughly reviewed.
The day after that, I helped my new roommate move into our new apartment and went out to dinner with her and her family later that evening.
I worked Wednesday through Sunday. Since so many of the staff have departed already, I was at times the only person at the Rustic Cafe, the only person in the General Store, and one of relatively few approved drivers in housekeeping. Plus the front desk needed me to help with the long lines of check-ins. Job security, friends.
I had a rather frustrating episode with a pair of sunglasses, which I’ve recounted as well. For those interested, the gloop has since re-appeared: it was on my pants the whole time.I watched some of the Olympics, including men’s and women’s swimming, gymnastics, and women’s track and field.
I re-introduced some wheat to my diet. (More details to come.)I went to a folk music concert. It was a local Colorado band called Strangebyrds, and I really enjoyed their music.I called my mom.
