Yesterday was a long day

I knew yesterday  would be a long day.  Between work and shopping, I had  the DTC party  and I had  to make sure things are in order before I leave friday for the Deckers.

I finished Friday’s mail and then started on today’s. I also worked on the tallies too then  I started with the US mail as it came to me just as I was finishing Fridays and so did the lockbox.  At lunchtime I went to the bank to get money to pay for a birthday lunch Wednesday and to pay for the lotto pool.  That was a debacle if I ever saw once.

I walked in the cold and rain to the bank.  I discovered that I had left everything back at the office.  I had to go back and get it and then go back to the bank.  This time I took the car.  I didn’t get back until 1.  It sort of threw off my timing.  I finished the mail part but didn’t get to the lobby. I will do that first thing when I get there tomorrow.

I left by 4 and headed home.  Mom was making lamb chops for dinner.  We talked about what time the DTC event was and it turns out it was 7:30.  Mom went to her BRidges board meeting and a short time later I went to the party.

I stayed until 8:30 and then took off for the stores before they closed.  I was only able to get to Whole Foods for DIane and Rogiers gift and to Home Depot for Chris’s.  I have to get Jamies now and Mom’s.  I am actually annoyed with that  Mom took the one she was going to let me give to Jamie and used as a equalizer for the girls.  

It was after 9 when I got home and Mom was getting into her Pajamas.  We talked about the party and the fact there is a picture of her in yesterday's paper.  It isn’t a very complementary one and that really is annoying.  What was even more annoying was when I told her about the picture she kept saying “Oh I didn’t see it”.  The first contradiction.  

Mom had forgotten she had Uncle Ron’s new Address (I knew I had gotten from her).  So I sent it to her and to Liz.  I had gotten a message from Cousin Judy and she gave me her new address.  Mom questioned it.  I explained I just got the information from Judy on Facebook.  Second Contradiction.

The rest of the night I watched TV and then went 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 …
