Didn't go to the Military Whisk

Mike and Roberta picked me up a little after 5:30.  We talked about where we were going to eat (it was my choice) we had at least two hours to eat before going to Meriden.  I picked Outback in Orange.  Unfortunately Roberta’s sense of direction was a little off and we did some back tracking up through Pez Candy factory and came up that way.

  Unfortunately we had a 45 minute wait.  So we went to 477 West in the Allingtown section of West Haven.  Our wait was a little shorter.  We started off with potato skins, and we each had something different.  Well Roberta had potato encrusted salmon and Mike and I had half a rack of ribs.  I had fries and Ice Tea and water.  It was getting later than we expected and we had to take Mike home yet.

Both Mike and Roberta caught colds on their return trip from Arizona this past week. They both made an attempt to do this Military Whisk but couldn’t.  We called DebbieM to let her know we are running late and we would be there as soon as we dropped Mike back home.  It was nearly 8 when she called back and we would have been there shortly.  She called back and said that it would probably be better if we didn’t come because they were going to start. 

At that point we were in the Long Wharf section of New Haven and turned around and headed home.  We stopped at the pharmacy to buy some Alka-Seltzer plus cold med for Mike and then Roberta dropped me off. 

Mom was surprised to see me but she was even more surprised at the beautiful Native American Crucifix that I got as a gift from Mike and Roberta.  It has coral, Turquoise, Jet Black (?).  It was hand made by a Zuni Indian (that’s what is written on the box).  I looked it up and here is their history.

Since I have been home I have been watching TV, browsing the web, and getting ready for bed.  I think its time I get to bed anyway.  I am tired and not feeling so well.

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…
