It's Surreal

The events that happened today at the elementary school in Newtown has gone international.  It is currently on every channel in CT and probably across the country.  It is on almost every site I frequent and there is anger, confusion, calls for and against gun control.  There are memorials on twitter, facebook and probably every other social network.  All trying to make sense.  I just couldn’t watch it anymore.  I would imagine any NY station close to the area has it and probably most of the other new england and cable stations.  I just couldn’t watch it anymore.

I have been channel surfing for part of the night.  The Lord of the Rings Trilogy is now on.  Part one.  I suspect the rest will be during the weekend.  There are a few other things on this weekend but I am hoping to catch them now and then.

I was unable to finish the mail today.  I have no clue as to why well probably I do the festive mood the amount of time I was on the net (this was before I found out).  I also went to see Debra and we talked about the week’s events.  I don’t think either of us knew what happened.    I am hoping to go to work extremely early on Monday and get the work done.  

I had my INR done and it was low.  Dr. S has stopped coumadin and start xarelto aka Rivaroxaban.  It is going to be expensive.  I have already gotten a message saying its going to delayed because of the insurance company.  There are precautions with it but the up side?  Do not have to keep getting monitored.  

When I left there I headed back to the house and made a side stop to the post office.  I mailed the 26 cards and bought two rolls of stamps (100) wasn’t expecting them to be that freaking expensive  but oh well.  I was also going to mail Jo-Ann all these friendship books but it was getting.

It was after five and Mom was upstairs.  SHe had herself a busy day as well.  The early morning meeting at the Graduate club in New Haven.  A bunch of things in the afternoon.  We had stew for dinner.  BEfore dinner I showered and got into my pajamas.  

Now Mom is in bed.  I had a “near midnight snack” and watched TV.  Now I am turning on the radio program “Profiles in Folk” and go to bed.

Ended up

Because I wasn’t feeling well last Thursday night  and the lack of sleep from it I barely did anything Friday.  I did some laundry, cleaned out one of the litter boxes, emptied the dishwasher only to fill it up again. I made myself an early lunch of steak and potato and had yogurt.  I was not anxious to eat too much as my shoulder still hurt. I think the aches and pains are from the amount of cheese I had in the last couple of days.   I fell asleep for the afternoon watching the X Men double feature.   I did fold some of the clothes and sheets and put more laundry in.  You are probably wondering where all these clothes are coming from.  Some of them have been there a few days and needed refreshing. When I didn’t fold the clothes I watched TV.  I actually sat through Hawaii 5-0 haven’t done that in months.  It's a good show.  It has done a few cross overs with the NCIS franchise (mostly the LA show) now there is some discussion prompted by articles that that H50 will do crossovers …

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…
