The kitties continue to be cuddly at bed time.Tuesday into Wednesday they stayed on the bed until quarter of 4.Each taking each side of my legs.They continue to get me moving in the mornings for work.
I saw my health coach yesterday.I was a bit disappointed that 1) I didn’t lose weight 2) I didn’t lose a lot of weight. I am basically maintaining.She wants me to focus on the debate of making choices.
Tonight I see Debra, we haven’t actually met in the Office because either of us have had something come up.H…

We finally got some sun

After several days of rain, snow, and clouds we finally got some sun this week.  It will not be for long though.   IT is supposed to get messy Friday into Saturday (again).  We still need it parts of the state are still in drought mode. 
Last weekend was the baby sprinkle and it went well despite the usual underlying tension between family members.   There were a lot of beautiful gifts and clothes.  Even Big Brother Luca got some stuff as well.  The expected arrival of baby Girl S is on the 17th and apparently it will be C-section.  
The international dinner at Beth-El Shelter was a huge success.  As always a variety of different foods and desserts and of course a full house.  I believe some of the girls got a real Eye opening experience for their first time.  Our monthly meeting will be on April 3 instead of in two weeks (Its April vacation).  Later on in the month is the fashion show, we have some other activities going as well.
I do have some concerns as our season is coming to a cl…

Lots of coffee

Today was a day for coffee lots of coffee unfortunately it was mostly decaf except for one late in the day.It was a cold, rainy day.It is going to be like this until later tonight.The weatherman promises sunshine for the next two days. Then back to the rain by the end of the week and into the beginning of the weekend.I have heard this is helping the drought a little at a time.Again still have a ways to go.I am sorry to hear that in the southern states were really hit by softball sized hail and lots of rain.I wonder if that will happen to us come the spring or summer.
I continue to be busy at work.This morning I spent two hours pulling EOB requests.There were a couple I couldn’t find so I handed it to Supervisor and he had to print them out because they were EFT.AC found one that I couldn’t (although I did see it but was unsure it was) find. I should go with my instincts next time.The rest of the time was refund checks and the mail.I have to finish the mail tomorrow.
I did bring my conce…

Today is the kind of Day

Today is one of those blah rainy and cold days you would like to roll over and fall back to sleep.I almost did that this morning.I turned the alarm off patted Sky on the head (he was my furry snooze button). Went back to sleep until 6.Did our morning routine; then get ready for work. I managed to steal a few minutes on the computer.
I got to work exactly at 8 and jumped into the work.I did the EOB pulling/search and then got coffee and worked on the refunds all morning. We also had a fire in the building this time it was from one of the labs.If and when the time comes I want our new office to be in a building Lab free.I can’t begin to tell you how many times I have gotten in the elevator and one of the lab rats is carrying something or pushing a cart with whatever on it.They are supposed to use the freight or service elevator.This discussion I had with one of my co-workers and we both agree and believe they should not use the passenger elevators.I also expressed my concerns with Superv…

The Weekend Flew by again

I am sitting in my living room watching the 60 minute piece on fake news and how it is perpetrated and how much it is believed and used.One of the guys who is a radio guy is an idiot.It is just a piece to remind us all to be care full of the things we read on the various sites.This is an issue in a few of the message boards for NCIs I frequent.We are constantly reminded to not post from certain sites (and yet some still did it until recently) and to check with reliable sources such as the network itself or the reps of the stars or even ET or such sites.Anyway I am waiting for NCIS: LA. To start.
I am also realizing the weekend is virtually over.I woke up at a fairly decent hour fed the cats, and watched TV and waited for the grocery delivery to come.The weather was fluctuating between gray skies, rain and an occasional visit from the sun.
I spent part of the morning watching one of my favorite movies.It was Free Willy.The first time I went to see it was when it first came out in theater…

I really need to curl up

My lazy side and get stuff done.It is after 7 and the most I have done is watch TV and had several cups of decaf coffee. I made lunch and dinner.Okay maybe I have done some laundry I need to if I am going to go out into the world.
Yesterday’s entry is still in the ether world and probably won’t get to me again until Sunday or even Monday when I am back at work.. It continues to be a backed up week.
Work was basically fine.Worked on the EOB searches and then refund letters and the mail.There has been a fundraiser for a long time co-worker who just went on medical leave.We are having a raffle of varied theme baskets.I left in semi rush that I forgot my cell phone.I might go back this afternoon to get it.
I was a little anxious that I wouldn’t be ready for the 4th district meeting but it turned out okay.I decided what wasn’t done wasn’t going to get done.The house was fine.The bathroom was fine, I was able to put somethings away.The cake was fine.
Members started showing up at quarter after …

I discovered this week that one of my other neighbors put her house up for sal…
