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.

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 …
