For the second day in a row there was an accident on the highway. I ended up being late for work. I had gotten off in West Haven but before the location of the accident and took the back roads (or secondary roads). I didn’t actually start working until almost 8:30.

The upside to all this was the fact that the volume of the mail both in Lockbox and the Post office and the lobby mail was very light and I was able to finish it all before 3 pm today. I did work on low priority stuff too. TonyF stopped by and apologized for the books he ordered coming all at once.

AT Lunch time DK and I went for a walk to the lunch vendors over at the hospital. It was such a beautiful day neither of us wanted to go back. But we were strong and returned. Besides both of us had lots to do before we left for the day.

Some news we did receive today about LG. She spoke to HR yesterday and it was agreed that she would be given a Medical leave. Some feel that LG should have taken it a long time ago. Now GC has an interview with a casual from the IP in the morning to replace LG. This person has been in the pool for three years. We haven’t had much luck with people from the pool. There is one exception to this observation and that would be JN. She has been a god send.

I spoke with Mom today. She had her MRI this morning it went okay except for the ticket she got for parking in a handicap spot. She forgot her tag a home but she is going to appeal it. I say good luck with that one. We had lasagna when she got home from her meeting tonight.

Last night we all received an email from Jim but it wasn’t from him but the people who stole his computer. They have hacked into it and have sent virus infected emails. WE have agreed to just delete them. I hope one day it stops. I don’t know why they keep doing this (I suspect it’s the genius roommate).

Tonight was the Woman’s club general meeting. We had a representative from Lia Sophia jewelry show. If we order so much we will be get a discount and a percentage for our club. Her name was KristenS. By the end of the meeting I was thinking of getting some thing or two from Mom for Easter and Mother’s day. I spoke to Mom about it when I got home and she thought the prices were a little high but I wanted to do something for her other than flowers and plants.

I also had an opportunity to catch up with Telka’s kids. I hadn’t seen them in awhile and wanted just to chat and it was fun. We laughed about things and talked about all that was going on in our lives.

We got an issue cleared up with a girl who wanted us to write a letter of recommendation for her and volunteered with me three years ago for a year. We are not doing it. It was a definite no brainer. But I did tell the group we will have to be signing in the volunteer book at the nursing home from now on.

Finally Mom told me yesterday that Woody has woken up from his winter nap. She saw him in the back yard this week. I haven’t seen him but I did see my first rabbit of the year tonight.

Finally I need to ask you all to say some prayers for a dear friend of mine who is having a rough time this week. I just wanted to let her know she is being thought of tonight and every night and day.

Okay I am going to say good night now.

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…
