I saw David Yesterday

I left the house later then I should but I did get to stop at the DD near the nursing home.  I chatted with the picket line and then went inside.  Shelly was there and so was Matt we chatted.  Some of the residents were getting a little rowdy and I put my foot down.  I just said if they couldn’t behave they would leave.  As the morning progressed we had six or seven games but no coin for the games.

After the games I went to church.  I  was only a few minutes late but they were just finishing prayers between the two readings.  After church I was about to call Liz (I had the gifts that Claudia sent) but I got a call from Dave.  He wanted me to accompany him to Vinny’s Garden Center and run some errands with him and then we would go to the movies later.  We agreed to meet back at the house by 1:15.

After the call I called Liz and made arrangements to come over for a short time.  Chris, Audrey, Jason were tehre when I got there.  They were having Thanksgiving #2 that afternoon.  I spent time with them and then came home.  

When I got home told Mom what my afternoon plans were going to be.  A short time later we got a visit from Mike and Tessa and then Dave arrived.   Mom was having a really hard time hearing everything.  Dave thought he was speaking loud enough (he was speaking too fast as usual).  I tried to explain to her but both she and Tessa were dismissive.  That just aggravated me all the more and we took off.

For the next several hours we shared our litany of family stories and things that aggravated us.  We made stops at Yankee Candle Factory in Orange, then Bob’ Store, then we decided on Supper.  We went to Puerto Villarta Restaurant  Dave had a shrimp dish and I had frjitas beef and chicken.  We had something was large Guacamole served in mini shells...We had flan for dessert.  After that we headed to the mall.

The first place we hit was Macy’s.  Dave needed to get gifts for his niece and nephew.  He bought some stuff for himself (something I gave up on convincing him not to do).  I called Mom from there. That was a mistake.  She couldn’t hear me.  The rest of the store could.

Second place we went was Hallmark store.  I got a couple of cards.  The get well card that i was supposed to pick weeks ago for JWalker, a cute Birthday card for SRoddy (I handed it to her this  morning).  After that we headed to the theater.  I waited for him while he went to Target and to the car with our stuff.

We saw Lincoln.  It was great.  IT was a lot of fun trying to identify all the actors who I have seen over teh years in various shows, movies.  I also didn’t mind the incessant number of advertisements, behind the scenes segments, and the upcoming previews.  We were finished by 9:30 and home a short time later.  

I chatted with Mom who was already in her pajamas watching TV.  She had gone out to lunch with Mike and Tessa to a Mexican Restaurant in West Haven and had hamburgers.  I told her about the movie and how things were going for his family.  I went and finished watching the last part of the NCIS marathon.  Actually I didn’t watch the last full hour of it because I was tired and I wanted to go to bed.

Right now I am finishing up Friday’s mail.  I will be starting on today’s and finishing it tomorrow.  I am planning on leaving a little before 4 for my INR check up.  Then I am picking up my plaquenil.

I called Mom because she had an early morning appointment it was for her iron infusion.  I am not sure what else (Possibly the dryer repairman)

We have a DTC meeting this week but the rest of it should be quiet. I hope

In the mean time I need to get going....

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 …
