First TGIF of 2013

I am glad it is Friday.  i have been busy today.   I managed to work on some of the readdress and the lock box (and that was weird too).  The bank that handles our lock box must have had new people working on it because they had opened and stapled the documents and the envelopes together.  It was time consuming to unstaple everything.We had spoken to them about it when we first contracted with them and it has been fine until today.  JB said she would speak to them about it.

I met with Debra and we spoke about the holidays and how I respond to things when I feel being judged and criticized and find a way of dealing with it.  it was interesting.

When I got back to the office I finished opening the post office mail.  I think the way I did it today took too much time to do it.  It also didn’t help to be online either.  I basically would open a small batch at time sort them and then date them and open the rest.  I should have just gone through looking for checks and then open and stamp the rest.  I managed to get the mail opened and delivered by 4.  All that’s needed to do is the postage.  I can do that first thing Monday.,.

The drive home seemed a little long to me and that was because there was an accident on the highway between Exits 44 and 43. There seemed to be a lot of damage but no one hurt.  I could see a State trooper getting off the highway on the Northbound and I figure he was coming to the scene of the crime.  Just as I was looking at it I turned to see a deer along the tree line of to the right.  It was beautiful.

I saw another beautiful sight as well.  If any of you are familiar with exit 41 on 95 in Orange you will know there is a big Hill as you are getting off.  It is a safe bet you will find everything from Canada Goose to Woodchucks to deer grazing around there.  Well today I saw a hawk standing on the ground apparently grazing.  I usually see them in my back yard either flying around or perched high above the ground on tree limbs.  I am not used to seeing them on the ground like that.

When I got home the sun was setting a little lower in the west.  When I got inside Mom was in her pajamas getting dinner ready.  I helped a little (just set the table a little) and then did some other things because we wouldn’t be eating until much later.

This allowed me some time to get online and surf the web for a little.  I checked some emails and found out that a friend of mine who is on the DTC/4th District with me is featured in a local magazine.  He is cute (even if he is married)

WE had pork chops and scalloped potatoes and peas for dinner.  Mom used a recipe that she normally doesn’t use and I don’t think she liked it but I did.  I will have to ask for the recipe and take a look at it later.

I was thinking I could do laundry but I am not up to it.  I am not tired yet but most friday’s I like to relax after working all day.

I just joined this blog.  Walks is fellow member of my Journal Writing list on the Yahoo Groups.  I am looking forward to reading her blog...:)

Well I am going to go turn on my Friday night Radio programs and chill out for the night.  I hope you have a great one.

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…
