why do I do this?

I think I am going to stop sharing everything with people!I was telling a co-worker that (I tell a lot of things to) that I got my DIA.com order and she had never heard of it but when I told her how much it came to she said that was too much.I found myself justifying why I got it and she insisted it was too much.I told her I wasn’t discussing it with her.I am not sure what I was really expecting her to say probably.I was hoping she would be “supportive” if that applies here. I do admit I wasn’t expecting it to be that much money for five pieces but I should have considering the pair of pants I paid Liz for last week were $60.
I didn’t really sleep well last night. Between the coffee and the tea and a few online aggravations in some of the forums I am on I just couldn’t sleep.I nearly rolled over on Sky a couple of times too.I did stay up and write a letter to my pal Aatifa and while I was sitting there on the couch princess Tiger sat above my head.I don’t think she has done that for a …

The weekend has arrived

Another weekend has arrived and I can’t seem to get going.I had all these things planned for this weekend and all I want to do is sleep.
Yesterday was a huge success for me. I worked until 1 yesterday and then had my appointment with the Rheumatologist. Actually it was with the Nurse PR actioner. I was a little late but apparently so was Anita.Aside from the fluid in the ankles and the weight I am doing okay.Sadly Anita is retiring in December.She says they are looking for a replacement but they don’t know when.When I was leaving we promised to keep in touch.I have to get some lab work done. I might get it done today.
After that I headed to DMV and got the title to the car.I had to pay for it again this time it was $25.I had to sign an affidavit to say the loan was paid off.I was out of there in 45 minutes I think.I was home by 4.I called Davis W at the insurance company and I called Liz.I just want to get last minute advice from Davis before I mail it.
When I got home I had some chicken…

Revising

After I finished some of the healthlogic for Tuesday, I went and did the scanning.  Since the daily mail was not here I kept with the scanning until It was all done.  I admit I took longer than I should have because I was also updating my to do list so that I can be more specific in my tasks and when I do them to focus on those particular tasks. Not saying it will work.
After a stuttering start with the cell phone I managed to order a floral arrangement for my friend Rosa.  It's all purple and I seem to recall that she likes purple.  I don’t see her often (usually at fundraisers or rally’s or forums).  The florist said it will be delivered tomorrow.
I found my work ID this afternoon.  After spending two days looking and not finding it.  IT was in a side pocket of my bag that I carry.  Kicking myself for it.  At least I didn’t cancel the card yet.
Tonight is the retirement dinner for TMJ.  I am looking forward to this a great deal.  Will get to see many from Butler Building days (my f…

Thankful Thursday

1.        I am thankful for my family warts and all.  Everyone is good.  Liz and Nelson are doing an overnighter upstate CT for a lecture they are attending.  Jim is good fighting another cold I believe. 2.        I am thankful for my kitties.  I am thankful they didn’t leave any delightful gifts for me this morning.  They did wake me up at a decent time (normal 5:30).   3.        I am thankful for my job-Still playing catch up and getting a lot done.  Going to a retirement party tonight for a dear co worker of mine. 4.        I am thankful for the Medical profession that keeps me on the road to good health.  I see the Rheumatologist/LUpus NP tomorrow so we'll see how it's going.  Probably good.  Weight will probably be an issue. 5.        I am thankful for my neighbors.  Some have returned from a trip safely.  Others are in town visiting for a short trip. 6.        I am thankful for my home-Everything dried up nicely after my water works event yesterday.  Just have to straighten u…

This week is about catch up

The mail has been rather slow this week since Columbus Day.  At least that’s how I look at it.  So I have been able to catch up on what I call the re-address mail.  Mail that's not really important but it is on some level.   I still say some of this should be sent to addressee's home and not here.  I am hoping to get it all out of here by the week’s end.  Hopefully keep on top of it from now on.
The whole insurance/vehicle/dmv thing is still going on  I tried to call the other number I was told and went through an entire automated system.  All I want to do is to speak with a human being!  This is going to take some time.  I am hoping by some miracle that the actual copy of the title shows up in my mail.
I have been busy in the pen pal world.  I just recently wrote my California Pals to see if they are all safe.  I mailed one this morning two others will go out this afternoon.  Of course my computer decided to wig out on me.  I am still updating all files and revising documents a…

It's supposed to be fall right?

It is October 10th and and at 6:15 in the morning according to the thermostat on the fan in my window it was  70 degrees out.   But when I got in the car it said 62.  IT was still warm.   It actually won’t be like this for much longer when I looked at one of the weather sites it said the temperatures will go to normal for this time of year.  
Last night was semi productive.  I rearranged some of my clothes and closets.  I have a rather large bag with clothes that are either stained or ripped or too big to wear.  I put my summer clothes in the spare room (my old bedroom) and rearranged the closets in my bedroom.
Right after that I sat down and signed in for Dia.com and it was fairly easy.  I was expecting a whole bunch of questions and I didn’t get them until this morning.  That also didn’t take long.  I hope I chose okay.  But as Ann says if I don’t like it then send it back.  They will let me know when they send it and all.  I have to say there were some pictures of women who chose stu…

Columbus Day 2017

Today is the day we honor Christopher Columbus and all that he has done including the discovery of AMerica.  It seems there is new evidence or issues that are coming up.  Over the weekend a statue was vandalized in New Haven and the police are investigating it.  
I like today because traffic was light and I got here in good time.  I even got here before my supervisor and was able to put the magnetic clips I bought on his desk.  He chuckled when he saw them (the one he had prior broke) and I don’t have a poker face so he knew I got them.
It was  quiet in the office today as I mentioned over the weekend people took off today to have a long weekend.  It’s nice.  As I expected not a lot of mail coming in and what has come in were part of the redirecting mail that I am doing and small amount from weekend.  Spent most of the morning on readdressing and then I did  work on some  refund mailing. Which if I stuck through it would have taken me an hour but as I said the weekend mail came.  Both S…

A Gloomy Sunday

I woke up to a headache today.I think I was on the pillow that causes that I must be allergic to (sleeping directly on it without the pillow case). I took some Tylenol with coffee so I am hoping it will go away.Either that I will be making jaunt to the bathroom soon.
It looks like we will be getting the effects of Tropical Storm Nate for the next couple of days.It’s a good thing I wasn’t planning on going out and attempting the weeding today.It’s been obviously windy but not gale force.It was in the mid 70’s according to the thermostat on the fan in the window.I will be surprised if it gets any worse.At least I can test the car’s ability in the rain.I stand corrected it’s raining now.It smells nice.
I showed Liz the documents (via text) I got from the DMV yesterday and she said it does say Title but it’s not like the one she remembers.She recommended I show it to the adjuster and I told her I already did (at least I hope it went).I am relieved it came when it did I was thinking it would…
