I watched Jay last night


Most of you who read this blog or know me know I am not a late night talk show viewer.  I usually find the monologues stupid, boring and belittling.  The only times I will actually endure this crap is if a celebrity I like is on.  Last night was just that night.  They had First Lady Michelle Obama as the first guest. 

She was funny, witty, and informative and I found the anecdotes about what life is like in the White House for the Obama’s to be very interesting.  They keep some form of normalcy in their lives despite the fish bowl existence.  She barely if at all touched on political issues.  She talked about the things she is involved with (the military, kids health). 

Of course I loved the interview with Mark Harmon.  Jay did interrupt him a few times but it wasn’t as bad as usual.  I watched it a few more times on line.

I did have a hard time getting back to sleep last night and when it was time for me to get up it was 6:30.  I could hear Mom getting up as well.  She had to be in Hartford early and so I was in and out of the bathroom in good time.  One minor snafu was when Mom starting bitching about the top.  She has to learn that if she insists on 1) being so damn critical and 2) nasty about things she will alienate people around her including her children.

 The drive in to work was okay despite the rain shower.  I was in the office a little after 8.  I wasn’t pleased at the fact I had to ride up in the elevator w/SR.  She may have a tad problem with me not at my desk at 8.

LG hasn’t come in yet.  She called earlier to say that her eyes were still “blurry” and she might be in later in the day.  She had the surgery Monday.  It is general consensus that she is milking the situation.  I have now dubbed her “the Milk lady”.

My Plans for this evening are to do laundry and get my room in some what good shape.  I have two reasons for that.  The first being if Jim does come up I suspect the kids will be with them.  Second I will be too busy Saturday to do any cleaning in time for the Mexican Train game at 5.

Okay the lockbox is finished and now on to the other stuff.  I will see you later….

Moved Slowly

This is a definite slow day.  This morning did our regular routine for a Saturday.  The kitties have been fed, and have been let down into the cellar,  I cleaned out the litter boxes, and went back to sleep with the TV watching me...get the picture?
Peapod arrive just after 9:30.  I didn’t need to see them as Sky was running up the stairs.  The driver pulled into the neighbor’s (Hockey guy’s) driveway.  I asked her not to do it she explained it wouldn’t be for long and she figured it was mine.  I just shrugged my shoulders and resigned myself to the fact she will do it.   Please for the love of all that’s right next time listen to me.  BEsides there was plenty of room in front of the house!  I got every thing that I ordered and put it all away.  Another list is already started for next week.
The weather sites got it wrong again.  One of them said we were supposed to get rain this morning.  It was supposed to start sometime after 8:30.  Need I have to tell you it never came?  The sun fin…

REally Busy

I am so sorry I haven’t finished the weekend entries.  I just was too tired and Monday was busy.  I know I have my Florida adventures to write up but again.  Not enough time or energy lately.  
I am looking forward to next weekend as I am meeting up with Siduri and we are going to spend the day in the city and visit Peabody museum and have lunch.  On sunday is baby Giada’s Christening and I am really looking forward to that.  I haven’t met Giada yet but from the pictures her parents and grandparents post she is beautiful.
WE had some late night rain last night and early morning rain today.  We may have more as the week progresses but that’s okay.  Meteorologist Geoff Fox began his second week at his summer Gig at Channel 8 this week.  His first week went well even with some first time hiccups with the technology.  He is having a blast along with his colleagues and fans.
I received a letter from my pen pal Debi in Tampa and I did manage to read the whole letter in one sitting.  She is kee…

Sunday Objectives

As i was finishing up feeding the cats this morning I walked into the living room and found what looked like a hairball on the window sill that landed on the floor.  Ick  I don’t know why they have so many hairballs.  There is two more around the house.  Cleaned one up in the office upstairs the other day.
I let them downstairs already.  I actually am not sure if both went or just Sky.  I turned around after finishing cleaning up hairball number 2  and tiger was just sitting there.
My other objectives today would include laundry and church and of course bingo.  I know you are surprised about the church but it's time I go back.
Nothing is wrong but this is proactive.  I feel that when I don’t go to church for a long time my whole center seems off balance and things go wrong.  I want to prevent that from happening.  Considering I am also on the Ladies guild Board now.  I best do it.
I talked with Mama Roberta Friday night for an hour.  She told me about her trip to Colorado and how she …
