Had a lot of fun

Hey everyone I hope your Sunday was pleasant.  Mine was good.  I managed to get about 5 or six hours of sleep.  I got up at one point got the clothes out of the dryer and turned the heat up and went back to bed for another 45 minutes.

Mom was already reading her paper when I got up.  I was still very tired and we talked a little bit about the game plan for this afternoon. After that discussion I came upstairs and did some web browsing.    Then I got ready for bingo.

I noticed I couldn’t find a set of keys I usually use.  I have looked all over the place and still haven’t found it.  Kept looking after the game and can’t find it.

I got to the nursing home after 9:30.  They knew I was going to be late but I also stopped at the picket line.  When I got in Matt B was waiting and so was Angela.  We chatted and she gave me an orange and then as the time got closer I chatted with the others.  Helen from Christ the Redeemer came to distribute the communion.   We had about 10 or 12 people playing and a few of them were feisty.  My Tolerance level was being stretched as it were.

After bingo I went to church.  As usual I was late.  Part of the reason was I was chatting with the Nursing home receptionist Claudia.  She was showing me pictures of her new house.

When mass was over I called Roberta to get her advice on when to serve the coffee.  She said we could have it much later and that was good enough.  She did tell me that Carol and Gary had to back out because their daughter got sick.

When I got home Mom and started putting some things out, I had a bowl of cereal and She went shopping and came back long after we had started the games.

Everyone started arriving just about 2:30.  Before sitting at the table we sat in the living room and talked about GPS, coupons and restaurants.  The K’s didn’t come until 4.    Roberta gave them the wrong time.  We all got different things. For me I had gotten a salad, and I shared half of a calzone with Debbie.

Mom came home sometime around 3:30 or so and had lots of stuff.  She did most of the unloading.  It was kind of funny.  I wasn’t really sitting in a position in which I could keep getting up to help with anything. 
Anyway, after we ate we continued to play the game.  We played until about 8 and then we had dessert and talked a little more.  I was telling them about this woman at the nursing home who was from West Haven and nasty as could be.  Well it turns out she was Dan & Diane’s cousin.  They both agreed the woman I spoke of is very mean.  I was really embarrassed.

After everyone left I finished cleaning up as much as possible (Charley helped out a lot before he left) and then came upstairs to watch TV, and try and find the keys (no such luck).    I am hoping they may be in the car some where.

Telka sent me a picture of her and some one who was a guest at a martial arts competition and she says it was Kevin Sorbo.  It didn’t look like it to me but what do I know?  Its been years since I actually saw him and the last time I saw him on TV was on the “Doctors” show.  I think it may have been Martin Kove. 

My anxiety about Tuesday’s meeting has lessened for now but to be honest it actually comes and goes with the little effort.   That’s why I enjoyed not worrying about it during the games.  I did mention it to the gang.  It felt good to verbalize it.  It wasn’t the first time today I did it either.

Well I am going to go to bed.  I will see you all tomorrow.

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 …
