The House began to stir at quarter of 6 this morning.The cats and I did our regular early morning routine.After a while Sky started caterwauling so I let him downstairs.I did not want him to wake R and M as they had to be out of here around 8.
Dr. T called this morning to see if they were available so I explained that they would be home by 6 tonight so she decided that she would come at that time and would call first.I had sent a text to her around 1 before falling asleep with that message something tells me it didn’t work,
I spent the rest of the morning getting better scores on the crossword puzzle site.It worked for a bit and then I slept until Sky woke me up because he was meowing so much.
I heard from Liz this morning they are both still very tired (can understand that) .She hoped that the kids would stay away so they could rest.There is nothing wrong with that but I think that also should mean all of their friends as well.I told her that’s why I am not running over there or callin…

Last day of VAcation

Yesterday was the last day of my vacation until maybe next month or June.It was raining since Thursday night and it is still going on today.It was cold and dreary yesterday and it was the same for today.
After tackling the kitchen I decided to go run some errands that included paying for the post office box, picking up the creative writing contest stuff, and messed up on my prescription.
When I got home made some calls and it was straightened out.They were reminding me I have to have an eye test while taking the plaquenil.I told them I was in two months.I guess its new protocol.
In the afternoon I did some errands for Liz who had brought Nel home.I picked up the prescriptions and some lunch/dinner for them.I also picked up a stuffed chick where bunny ears.I later found out he loved it and it’s by their bed.
When I got home I was waiting for Roberta to come home.She had lunch with a friend and Michael worked with his friend eddy.They had dinner in Branford.
Roberta and I just watched TV it …

Not feeling well again

Around 3 this morning I started getting cramps and next thing I was crapping and it has subsided for the most part but I been sleeping for most of the morning.I couldn’t believe I slept until 6:30 this time. Despite the cats best efforts.Sky slept above me and Tiger not sure.But they were running around and meowing by 6:30.
I got up fed them and then went back to bed for a while.I really haven’t done much today.Consulted with my Lawn guy who has had people re seeding the front and side yard and starting on the yard, folded sheets, sent the dishwasher through and cleaned up some kitty related spots.
Someone missed the box today and I am not sure who but ever since I moved it to the back hall in plain view of the world they have either missed the litter box or threw stuff out.
I started getting dinner ready around 5 then I got a message from Mama indicating they weren’t going to be in town until 7 and they hit traffic.So I put it back in the refrigerator until 5:30 and started cooking the …

I finally heard from nephew John in Florida via IM.He is preparing for his reassignment to Alaska.He and his wife and fur babes are leaving June 10 driving there.They will be going up through Canada.I really look forward to reading their adventures.We really didn’t talk long h…

This Past week

When I wasn’t with my friends I spent it quietly sleeping or watching TV and running some errands.I spent some time with family on Saturday and then went out with my friends to some spend time with a larger group of friends.
On Sunday was the Easter Celebration that I spoke of yesterday.It was very active and as I look back at it-it wasn’t as bad as I originally thought or wrote about.It was very special and all the more when we spotted a rabbit by my car.I would like to think it may have been Mom.
I spent most of Monday doing taxes.A huge headache there.In the afternoon I had appointments and errands and then went to dinner with R and her friends.It was a late evening.We talked and talked about stuff and some of it was rehashed stuff.
Tuesday was a fairly quiet day.Found there was a break in around the neighborhood.I did some laundry while waiting for word on My BIL from his surgery. I got the word late that he was in a room in ICU step down in lots of pain but good.
My internet kept cra…

I swear

I swear every time I go to do my taxes.I have issues whether it is internet connections, firewalls, or I have problems with my passwords.I started to get it set up around 8 and ended up using and I still have to fix it.Didn’t put info in that is needed.Will have to do it soon.
So Easter at my friend’s house.I have mixed feelings about it.It was a little hectic and awkward for me.The food phenomenal.The behavior of some really rude.I was asked to set the table yet this one woman who has only been here (in the country) five years doesn’t move.I didn’t want to wait for her to finish cutting something that could have been done in the kitchen.A few people spoke in Greek and when they know how to speak English whether it is limited or not.Everyone left me at the table with the old Greek lady who barely spoke English.I really didn’t appreciate it.The hostess interrupts her daughter while the daughter is speaking and doesn’t say excuse me.I let Roberta know when we were leavin…

Easter 2017

Good Morning and Happy Easter to all who celebrate this day.Admittedly I haven’t gotten ready for church or services.As my sister pointed out I participated in a Seder but not my own religious tenets.To be honest I haven’t been to church since I think Christmas.I think it would be awkward.
Dinner at the Carol and Gary’s last night was lovely.Active with three dogs but lovely.The food was delicious and stories great.We had a curry chicken and something called cimmis?We had an eggplant dish and fresh fruit for dessert. There was a brief rain shower but it dried up by the time we left for home.We got home by 9 and I was in bed a short time later.The kitties were sitting on two of their regular chairs.
This morning they were hovering over me by 6 am.I got up fed them and went back to sleep on the couch and have the TV watch me.I got up had breakfast and have been surfing on the computer for an hour now.
I posted a Happy Easter message on Facebook and had some replies.I had also finished pos…

i waited

I had been waiting since 10 to hear from AH my Easter Dinner host about dropping off the main dish to store in my refrigerator overnight.I was expecting her to call before coming. Well she called me around 4:30 to let me know that she didn’t need to come over she had managed to clean her own refrigerator.I had things that I wanted to do.
Liz ended up coming here for coffee and we got caught up with family news for the next hour.She brought me a choc bunny and flowers, and some sweets for breakfast and or desserts.She had mocked horror when I told her how the kitties were able to go in to a closet.She told me what was going on with her SIL in Waterbury and how this and the ride up to Waterbury was a bit much for Nelson.
I have been doing a few things here and there.Like folding clothes, doing the dishes, and very shortly cleaning up the bathroom-again.Earlier had the TV on and did some net browsing.
Oh and around 10 am this morning April the Giraffe finally had her baby.I can’t believe I …
