Can Feel the Dampness

I could feel the dampness in the air on the way to the Nursing home this morning.  I really do have to get a new coat the one I do have is getting really old.  The lining is ripping apart.  Mom and I were talking about coats I have been pushing from Burlington and Kohls and she wants me to go to Talbot’s outlet store.  I see a trip there or Mom’s gift for Christmas.  It remained cloudy for the rest of the day until about 4 when the fog rolled in quickly. 

I got to the Nursing home after 9:30.  I think PJ was getting anxious but I wasn’t. I made my routine stops before getting there.   As the morning progressed I went and retrieved the residents and we had a big crowd.  Matthew helped PJ with paperwork.  I don’t think that’s what he had in mind when he signed up.  A couple of the people (read: Ms Dorothy) was making comments when Cookie decided he didn’t want to play.  I walked up to her and asked her not to be mean she pushed at me and said you don’t have to tell me I already said it to myself.    All of this just after we received communion.  I even said she was tough and relieved when she left. 

Bernie helped clean up with me and I checked in with PJ a couple of times before I left.  We discussed who could stay in the Recreation room alone and who had to be brought to the dining room and or back to their room.  When I left I stopped to see the picket line.  After that I got in my car and called Liz. 

A short time later I arrived and for the next hour I was there talking and listening to her and her friend Pat talk.  We talked about everything.  It was a lot of fun. I was heading home by 1:30.

When I got home Mom was on the computer upstairs and soup was cooking on the stove.  I spent the next couple of hours splitting my time between laundry, watching the NCIS marathon, and getting on the computer.

At one point I even got to spend time with some of my four legged godchildren.  I even talked to SeanD whom has been keeping busy with his two jobs.  One he absolutely loves.  We talked about not seeing any Hawks.  I don’t think he really gives a flying leap about them.  The funny thing is not too long after I had the conversation I saw one sitting on a branch on one of the trees on the edge of the swamp/marsh/wetlands.  He was in that tree for nearly a half hour.

For some reason Mom and I got to snapping at each other over really stupid stuff and it really annoyed me.  She didn’t like that I said I went to Springfield MA as part of road trip to return stuff to the Crate and Barrel  This would have been a good time to tell her when she talks like that to me it doesn’t make me feel good.  It also would never work.

Anyway all that passed.  We had dinner (left over stew with potatoes baked and sweet), She was still working on the Turkey soup until about 8.  Now she is watching TV. 

I did have a headache but taking some pain reliever helped.  I also took my plaquenil and the Warfarin earlier this even.  I have noticed a considerable change in the legs and knees.  I still have a little trouble getting up from the check at this desk.  Hoping that won’t be for long.  I have notice lots of interesting stuff from my lupus list. 

Sadly I just received an email from my journaling list informing us that one of our members lost her husband this evening.  I am saddened by this news.  People are responding with supportive emails.

I heard from Jim this evening.  The kids have sent their wish list to us and we got the info we needed.  I have given the emails to Mom so she can do the shopping. 

In the meantime I am going to finish the marathon and then go to sleep.

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…
