I embarrassed myself today

I was at the nursing home around 9:30.  I had seen my picket line gang and went in.  I ran into Natalie and a few others and headed into the room.  We were setting up and all this.  THe moment that was really embarrassing was when I couldn’t find “Fred”.  I had put him in the elevator and I turned around to get something and for twenty minutes I went on search for him and the elevators were taking too long.  A nurse told me to calm down.   We resolved it after I cried and we found him back in his room.  I told Natalie about it and at first she was a little concerned for me and then reminded me that as long as he was in his room it was fine.  I hope I haven’t dug myself into a hole or risked being told I can’t volunteer there.  When I left she seemed okay with everything.

I went to the 11:30 mass at St Mary’s church.  I was late as usual.  The parking lot was full and it would seem there were many people for a little girl who was killed recently.  The neighbors and friends of this little girl had requested a mass in her memory.  There were a couple of stories going around.  Either she was killed in Bridgeport or kidnapped.  I am afraid I didn’t hear of the original reports and I can’t find anything about it.

After church I went over to Liz and Nel’s house.  Liz was at the Stratford Historical Museum with Audrey they had been there since 10:30.  Chris and Jason were home with Nel.  Jason was playing with the neighboring kids.  Nel got a call from Liz to come pick up Audrey she was done being there.  While Nel did that I spent time talking with Chris.

We talked about Family both close and extended, holidays, and sports.  I even spent some time watching the Cincinnati Bengal vs Dallas Cowboys game.  It was about that time I decided to come back home.  I managed to get some ideas from Chris on what he wanted.  

On the way home I stopped at the bookstore for Rich’s gift and I was going to stop at Lowe’s but I was getting hungry and wanted to go home.  I talked with Mom and then had lunch.  Shortly after that we both started working on our Christmas card writing.  Actually I am still working on the list and the labels.  So far its three pages long.  I have to revise it for next year but it seemed like the thing to do.

We had a late dinner of Baked Chicken and vegetables.  It was delicious and it will be my dinner tomorrow as well because MOm is having dinner with the Knitwits or Literary club.  I can’t remember who now.

Ethel came over tonight.  She had attended a memorial service for those who have passed over the years that Cody White had serviced.  There was music, and prayers and each person was given an ornament.  WE also talked about CHristmas Eve.  Rogier will be home for it but lady Di will be in Nebraska working.  We did get some good news Doc John will be home for the holiday.  WE don’t know about MedicRob.  We are hoping his brother will encourage him to show up.


I had an opportunity to talk with some old friends online.  One of them was Ryan who was the young man who helped me with Bingo in the last few years of his HS Career.  The other was an old neighbor I grew up with.  She is currently living in OH near her family.   They all moved out there many years ago.  I managed to get their addresses and will be sending them notes etc.

Well it is late and I need to get to bed.  Have a great night.

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 …
