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.

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 …
