I got to ask.  Is it too much to ask for some consideration?  There were a couple of cases of this God Forsaken flu at the nursing home this week.  So far two have it.  Both are on the first floor.  One came in with it from the hospital and the other resident caught it or something..  Would it have been that hard to call during the week and say Hey Kate we have a couple of cases of the Flu.  No I get the sign at the front door saying if you are sick or have the flu don’t visit. 

Due to having Lupus my immune system is bad and has been for a while.  Case in point last year when the GI-bug was hot and heavy in the nursing home.  Who got it?  Me Who passed it on two a couple of my co-workers?  Me.   Do I want to pass anything on to Mom?  Not really.  I wanted to go see Liz today and thought better of it.  I have since found out she is making her first trip out of the house since she has been home.

Since there was a Flu watch going on the number of residents allowed to congregate were supposed to be ten to twelve it was its normal fourteen.  They wanted 2 people to a table.  As you can see it didn’t happen.  Happily we started on time and ended on time.  This allowed me to get to church on Time.

After church I came home.  Mom was in her office and I had lunch the left over Chinese dish I had last night.  Later this afternoon we are going to our Friends Mike and Tessa’s for dinner.  They are going to a concert first and I will meet them at their house.

I have been checking emails, writing this entry and watching TV.  I finally found some blogs that were from Kansas that I enjoyed reading.  They were from Kansas.  They really didn’t discuss “farming” even though they like those things but for some reason it clicked with me.

I have also been trying very hard not to think about work this week.  I still find myself thinking about the Mini-changes that are coming down the pike.  If you recall Judy wants me to record the time it takes me to do things like opening the mail, doing the re-address mail,  the postage tallies.  She wanted to add the times to the current tally daily tally sheets and I don’t think it will work that way.  I am hoping she will be receptive to having a different form with the times on it.

It looks like  the woman’s club will have a Board meeting the first weekend of February.  Time to be announced and all.  It will usually be about the activities that are being planned and what our plans will be for the spring and summer.  I suspect that officer elections will be coming up very soon.

For the last several days we have noticed an influx of crows in the neighborhood.  They have been gathering in the trees out back and flying around and making a great deal of noise.  Mom is wondering if they are ravens.  All I know is they look like they are on steroids.  When Neighbor Don and I were talking about it yesterday he showed me they are dropping mussels from the river to open and feed on them.

Well Mom left for the concert and she ahs asked me to pick up my room.  She needs to keep her mouth shut actually.  She also may want to check my birth certificate.


I hope you don't catch that pesky flu bug!!

Thanks me too. I am not a fun patient and I would rather not miss work because of it.

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 …

I swear

I swear every time I go to do my taxes.I have issues whether it is internet connections, firewalls, or I have problems with my passwords.I started to get it set up around 8 and ended up using and I still have to fix it.Didn’t put info in that is needed.Will have to do it soon.
So Easter at my friend’s house.I have mixed feelings about it.It was a little hectic and awkward for me.The food phenomenal.The behavior of some really rude.I was asked to set the table yet this one woman who has only been here (in the country) five years doesn’t move.I didn’t want to wait for her to finish cutting something that could have been done in the kitchen.A few people spoke in Greek and when they know how to speak English whether it is limited or not.Everyone left me at the table with the old Greek lady who barely spoke English.I really didn’t appreciate it.The hostess interrupts her daughter while the daughter is speaking and doesn’t say excuse me.I let Roberta know when we were leavin…
