Working Saturday

Good morning everyone.  I have been at work almost 45 minutes now.  Mama Joanie got here before I did.  I got up by seven as I had hoped too.  While I was getting ready Mom got up and had her coffee and did budget stuff.  She tells me that she left her earphones/hearing paraphernalia somewhere so she has to find it.  

As I mentioned in my last entry Mom is going to start making her pie crusts for pies for the Thanksgiving holiday.  I placed my orders with her as well.  She suggested I don’t worry about eating the pies.  She was making not so subtle remark about my weight.  She is right though.  

After work I am going to do the laundry I said I was going to do last night.  I want to make sure that I am dressed up a little for tomorrow’s Veteran’s Day services.  I am also going to try and get some cleaning done in the bedroom.  There is a sharp object on the floor that I can’t see and I have stepped on twice already.  I am going to see kitty at 4:30 probably so that it will still by daylight when I see her.

I have to make phone calls as well.  For all the upcoming events and such.  For example the Veteran’s Day service.  The PITS (Pie in the Sky) events start this week.  Monday is at Hopkins School in New Haven and on the 20th we will do more at Telka’s house.

It looks kind of gloomy outside and I was just checking the forecast for the weekend.  It looks like it will be cloudy for the weekend but in the 50’s.  As I am writing (and of course working) I can hear the reports and features of how the storms affect a person both financially and mentally.  Mama Joanie just told me that NJ residents won’t have their power until after Thanksgiving holiday.

I have a few sites on in the background so that I can check the webcams.  It looks like the Cambridge site is done for the morning.

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…

Busy Friday

I spent a couple of hours working on mail and sending out refunds for the afternoon mailing.  By the end of the morning I spent it working on scanning until the end of  the day.  I  don’t feel I got a lot done but I did have some problems with a couple of the batches.
I did make an appointment with Courtney the health coach for next week.  I was beginning to think I missed an appointment but when I checked with her I found that I hadn’t.  It will be on Wednesday at 4:30.
I wasn’t sure I could eat anything chewy yet so I had broccoli and cheese soup for lunch.  It was good and I did chew on the left side of the mouth with no problem but as usual I probably used both sides.  I had been drinking lots of water at least I tried.  I had some coffee.
It was also refrigerator cleaning day at work.  I had forgotten and manage to lose a new coffee creamer that I put in there from Thursday next time that happens I am bringing in a cooler  so I don’t waste three dollars.  It's already on the nex…

Jeans Day

This is becoming my favorite day of the week.  It's the day we can wear jeans to work.  It is a day to be comfortable but still be functionable and get work done.  Today it may have been a little too comfortable as I found my falling asleep a number of times at my desk.  Today was a little bit of mail and the rest of the day was scanning.  It went pretty well with a few glitches.  I have put in my time for my appointments for July.  I have taken all of Wednesday off and that will be explained in a moment.
I went to the food court outside the hospital for lunch and got some chinese food.  It was pretty good.  THere was a concert in the courtyard next door.  It was great listening to the music.  It has been a long time since I saw those there.
I have to admit I am still not feeling completely well.  I had my dental checkup yesterday and it looks like i am having a root canal done next wednesday..  It hadn’t been hurting for the last few days until they began to poke and prod it.  Hone…
