Rather quiet past few days, for the most part. I had two games I ran line on Wed. night at St. Louis U. High. Both semifinals in the Missouri Soccer Association's amateur cups -- Men's Amateur and Men's Over-30. They went pretty well. I was just glad the stormy weather held off until well after the games were over.
Yesterday, my parents and I had a nice dinner at Tucker's Place in south St. Louis County. It's a steakhouse, and we were celebrating my parents' birthdays -- Dad's 85th was yesterday, Mom's 69th is Monday. Tucker's is a good place to go for a nice steak dinner -- I had the New York Strip, which was very nicely prepared.
This past Tuesday, I went to a meeting of the STL Writers Connect MeetUp in Brentwood. About 6 of us were there -- this was my first time at this MeetUp -- and our leader gave us some tips on turning our ideas into books. I would like to try this in the coming weeks. Later on Tuesday, I went to a Yellow Tie networking happy hour hosted by Spoke Marketing in midtown St. Louis. There was a large crowd there, but I got to talk with a few people (including a few fellow job seekers) and it was a generally nice affair.
Tomorrow has me (1) officiating two games in the morning, weather permitting; (2) helping conduct a scale modeling Make & Take at the HobbyTown USA shop in Arnold, Missouri; and (3) attending a trivia night in Richmond Heights, Mo. with some folks from the WAWWA group. On Sunday, I'm going to a singles MeetUp brunch in west St. Louis in the morning, then referee tow men's games in downtown St. Louis that afternoon.
