Family News

A lot has happened in the last 24 hours. Last night I am sure you had heard or read about the terrible Tornado in Dexter MI. Well I have a cousin who lives there with his wife and we were concerned that they may have been affected by the weather. Happily I spoke with them this evening for a short time and they live 2 miles outside the town and are fine.

Tonight I found out that my Dad’s remaining sister RM and her husband will be moving from their home in Chantilly VA (the home I have ever known them to have) to Texas where their youngest daughter and her family live. I am floored. I had emailed her bright and early this morning when I heard the news about Dexter and wanted to tell them (calling them at 6:30 in the morning not the best thing to do).

I found out my cousin CAE (on Mom’s side) has moved from Texas to Florida with her family. I actually read her Facebook posts and Mom confirmed it this evening. She has the address from DH (CAE’s sister). I hadn’t realized that her children moved there either.

It looks like I will have to update my address book and contact page for my emails. I am finding it more important to stay connected to my cousins as the family dynamics are changing (getting older seems to do that).

My work day went pretty well. As you know I have been trying really hard to get up early so that I can at least get some things done and be able to feed the cat and get to work on time. This morning I was able to do that as well as get the car to the garage to be serviced and I managed to catch the earliest bus and get into work by 7:30.

I got the priority stuff done except for the lobby mail it wasn’t ready by the time I left so I am doing it tomorrow when I get into the office. I worked on the low priority stuff too. We also got more of those stupid Medical Society newsletters that comes out once a month.

On a very sad note a noted Physician and a man I worked for a short time before I started at Yale full time passed away this week. He was Dr. Howard M. Spiro. He was a Gastroenterologist and wonderful. PKJ came to tell me this news today. He was patient and kind and that’s what I will remember him the most.

I also found out that the husband of a former supervisor and co-worker passed away this month. He was 88 years old. I hadn’t seen CarmD since maybe her retirement ten years ago. I sent an email to TMJ this evening to see if she knew about it.

Well it is after 10 and I have another full day. I am planning on going to work after I feed kitty and then get some more things done tomorrow. I really need to get stuff done.

Yay Friday

I am so glad today is Friday.I woke up early again but stayed in bed for a bit.I didn’t lay down again after feeding the cats today.I did a little straightening up here and there.
I got a message from Livia last night letting me know I dated the check wrong and wanted a fresh one.I left another one with today’s date on it.I am just not sure when she is coming over.I didn’t want the house to look messed up after all the work she did.
The ride in was a bit anxiety filled.Several times I thought I was going to plow into the back of several cars.I wasn’t speeding but the cars in front of me didn’t seem to move.I was glad to get to the garage and then to the office.
In the morning I did some refunds and then spent time working on the readdress mail.It was about that time my guardian angel suggested I needed to do them (No kidding) and then as the afternoon progressed.She asked me to write up all that needs to be done because SR was upset that both of us were taking the beginning of next month…

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 …

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…
