Virtual Coffee actually takes place on Tuesdays, but I decided I needed a virtual coffee date (and a real coffee date) today, so won’t you join me for cup? Warning, I need to vent and complain a little bit….please bear with me.
I would tell you that I’m struggling in my jujitsu training….and it’s not necessarily with the physical part of the training. I expect that to be challenging so I’m not worried about those days when that doesn’t seem to click.
But it’s the place interpersonal relationships that I’m having a hard time with. Specifically with the Mister. He’s been training there for 11 years. Trust me, I don’t expect my jujitsu to look anywhere near what his does, but oftentimes I wind up in a position where he’s teaching. And I think I’m too sensitive here, but I feel like he holds me to higher standard than what he would another student at my skill level.
And he feels like I don’t show him enough respect on the mat. I AM trying. But sometimes it’s so hard when I need to ask questions to understand.
And on different jujitsu note, I am SICK to death of hearing “you really should try going to the ladies’ class.” I’ve spoken to my sensei. He teaches morning adult classes and evening adult classes. I can’t help it if it’s mostly ladies that go to the mornings and mostly guys that go to evenings. My schedule doesn’t permit me to go to morning classes, but I’m sure starting to feel unwanted in the evening class because I’m frequently the only lady there.
I would tell you how excited I am for the Mister’s birthday dinner party tomorrow evening. It’s not that his birthday is a special milestone…he’s turning 37. It’s just going to be a lot of fun to get together with a group of our friends and share some laughs and good food.
I do feel like I should have a little pile of presents for him, and I don’t. His gift is a new grill, which we actually brought home over Memorial Day. He spoiled me so much when I turned
30 29 again last year that I wish that I could do a little more for him this year. I do have plans for a very yummy birthday cake.
I would share that I’m going to be a great-auntie this winter. We found out this week that our oldest niece and her husband are expecting. It was a bit of a surprise at first, but I’m really excited for them. The baby is due the week of Christmas, which is going to make this holiday season really special.

You would see how excited I am that it’s officially summer. I love summertime. I love the warm evenings, the afternoon thunderstorms, the sunshine, swimming and going to the beach. I wish I were still in school so I could have a summer vacation, but since I’m a “grown-up” now, I’m just going to try to enjoy summer as much as possible around the work schedule.
So thanks for the impromptu virtual coffee date this morning. I hope y’all have a fabulous Thursday!
