Veteran's Day 2012



To all the service men who have served our country over the years and in the future thank you for keeping us safe.   The City of Milford had a parade on Sunday and I do believe they had wreath laying ceremonies in the center of town (where most of our statues are).   I am not sure when they stopped the parade. 

Sunday  MYWC Club and Girls Volunteer Club had a ceremony at the West River Nursing home honoring those who were in the Service We had a program for all the participants, and we had patriotic songs and a moment of silence.  We started around quarter of 2 and finished by 2:30.   We also visited the Veteran’s who chose not to come to the service. ( I guess they felt the Patriots game was alittle more important.

I managed to get to sleep around 1 am Sunday morning.  I woke up before 7 and spent time checking out the forums and emails that came in over night.   There was some really interesting stuff.  For example a blog that lists offers for Veteran at different restaurants.

It was nearly 3 when I got home from the day’s activities.  I was exhausted and my coughing fits were becoming more frequent and extremely annoying.  I think I am allergic to Robitussin’s.  It never seems to work for me.  Around 10 they subsided and I was able to sleep.   

Around 4:30 I managed to go see kitty as I didn’t in the morning.   Her Mom and Dad came home today some time.  I made one final visit this morning cleaned out poop box and fed her again and got the dishes out of the sink.  I spoke with Roberta late this afternoon.  Their flight was delayed and rerouted to New Jersey due to weather.  She was getting supplies for the PITS session at Hopkins tomorrow.

The M ail volume was light today as I expected and it will be tomorrow as well.  Once I was done with the daily stuff and managed to do some of the re-address mail I offered to do scanning.  I spent the last two hours scanning and doing a little web browsing.    I don’t think I will be able to do either of those things tomorrow.    We will see when I get to work.

I got my INR done and it went up instead of down.  I can’t believe it.  So the instructions are to take nothing until Saturday and at that its 12.5 and something else and go back on Wednesday (before Thanksgiving).

All my intentions of doing laundry hit the proverbial brick wall.  I was tired and we had dinner around 5:30.  I have had a few coughing fits but not as much as last night.  I am hoping they will eventually stop.

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 …
