couldn't write last night

I was trying to get a lot  done at work and we found out that a very dear colleague passed away unexpectedly while visiting family for the holiday.    The wake as you can read is this afternoon but I am not sure if I am going yet or not.  I would have to go home and freshen up first and check on the pups.  

I had been worried about the car insurance payment and when I got the reminder call from Tom W  I explained I had mailed it earlier in the week.  Then I admitted it was done the day before.  He reassured me that it should be okay.  He also said that I could always drop it off if it ever gets too close to the deadline and they would process it.

When I left here yesterday it was around 3 or so.  I stopped at home base and had dinner with MOm before going to the pups.  I checked emails and sent emails out that needed to be sent from my Outlook.

 I was thrilled to see a card from Aunt Rose Mary and Uncle Pete.  They even had their new address in Austin.  Mom said she received a call from them the day before and they were fine.  That was confirmed in the card they sent.  They talked about spending time with the kids frequently especially their grandchildren.

I took the pups out for their walk and then we got ready for bed.  I had aches last night.

Today I got the daily stuff done.  All that’s left is the pile of re-address mail and the stuff that comes in Monday.  I worked until 3 and then came right to the pups.  I haven’t seen any gifts for me since last night but I haven’t checked upstairs.  

I gave a hefty donation to the lotto pool and that keeps me in it until January 16.  I will need to get money tomorrow or Monday or I am screwed come NYE.  

I probably should get to the laundry as I don’t plan on going out later.  There is another storm coming through tomorrow early and I want to be off the roads tomorrow.

Wow it got cold fast

It dropped at least 10 degrees in a day or so.Yesterday I was being blown down the street while walking and today I have bundled up more.I heard we may get snow flurries tonight.Just as we are expecting the snow flurries the CPTV is rebroadcasting the documentary Blizzard of 78.
I had a good session with Debra.Talked about the events of the last couple of weeks and she is confident that I will be smart about the “Meetups”.She also recommended to not discuss it with Sis.We will meet next week regular time.
I did talk to Liz via text after I had received an invitation to my Niece’s baby sprinkle.(That’s what they are calling it cute huh?)Tentative plans are to go together.It will be later on this month.A week after Cheryl’s party.I am thinking it’s time for another outfit.I need to make time to get a gift for both parties.
I can say with relief that my traffic ticket I got last week was paid in full.They got it within the last couple of days.Bills are paid.
Work was fine we had a staff meet…

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 …
