Freezing Friday

I woke up very early this morning at Mom’s suggestion and got to the clothes in the washer.  I sent them through and within the hour they were washed.   i put them in the dryer and spent time watching tV, getting online, and basically waking up.

I was all set to leave on time until I had to go searching for my keys and the ID badges.  I wasn’t able to find the ID Badges until I got to work and of course I found the keys.  I didn’t get to the office until after 8.

It was so cold this morning.  I was uncomfortable.   It was a little windy too but then there is a huge wind tunnel down George Street anyway.  As I mentioned it was after 8 when I arrived and ran smack dab into the EX Dir Dess-Santoro.  All sorts of things were going through my head.  I was half expecting Susan, Judy, or someone to come running down and saying “you're late”.  

When I got to the office greeted people and then got to work.  Aside from an occasional conversation its pretty quiet here..  The mail was waiting for me to start.  I worked on that and readdress mail and then around 11 the post office mail came.

I left for Debra’s around quarter of 12 and then we had our session.  We discussed the week’s events and things that were agitating me (lots of different things).  When it was time to leave it was nearly quarter of one.  I walked back and it was still cold.

When I got back I dove into the mail that was left on my desk.  I also found emails from Judy asking for a couple of things.  One of them was the monthly mail long up today.  I also was asked to help with scanning when I am done with the mail.  I also wanted to clarify to be sure that she knows I do work on the re-address mail every day.  She understood that..  Later on in the day she wanted me to include times each of the mail-opening activity takes.  This is really upsetting me because I had asked her if people were complaining or if there were problems..  She told me know and that if there were then she would tell me.  I did let Lee-Ann know about it..  I would have told her more but I didn’t know the other part until later..  

I was so frustrated that when I left the office it wasn’t until after 4.  I was forgetting things behind (like my thumb drive and gloves).  I managed to get the gloves but the thumb drive will have to wait until Tuesday..  Most of the stuff on there i have on the hard drive as well.  I also printed out the two most important documents anyway.  I talked with a couple of coworkers about the situation and the whole being treated like a baby by the family.

Why am I talking about being treated like a baby by the family?  Um they keep giving advice about work.  For example (don’t make personal phone calls, internet use, etc.  Apparently I am not the only one it happens to.  This was one of the things I was also talking to Debra about at our session.
When I spoke to Mom about it earlier she dismissed me and told me I should just listen and that it puts me in a bad light when I don’t.  How do you think that made me feel?
So I have resigned to let it go in one ear and out the other.  It will be hard but to save my sanity and emotions its something that has to be done.
I talked with Liz tonight and she is still exhausted and her energy level was waning .  She was going through stuff and then heading back to bed I guess.  She was supposed to be going to her daughter-in-law’s shower tomorrow but she isn’t up to it.  She was disappointed on several fronts.  She has been left out of the entire planning of the event and  she was disappointed that her family wasn’t invited (I would imagine she meant us).  She doesn’t understand what is going on and I don’t ether but it will reveal itself some day..
This weekend will be one of low-key. I don’t have to be anywhere tomorrow.  So I will just do laundry and relax and leave work behind.  Sunday I will probably volunteering and then come back and relax more..  Monday will get ready for the short week and watch TV and perhaps part of the Presidential Inauguration.

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…
