New Years Eve Day

Well I have been here for nearly 45 minutes.  It’s quiet except for the occasional whirring of machines.  Susan and PattiM are here and I have signed in with Patti.  Today is also month end.  It is the same every year.  Our Month end and Recess occurs at the same time.  I seem to remember that we usually make the monthly goals at this time of year.

I have been up since 5:30.  The pups were very patient with me when I changed the sheets on the bed (me think they had made their deposits in the other room).  I got the garbage out including the broken glass from the picture.  They stayed on their bed(s) longer than I was expecting as I was trying to get cleared up.

I started off the day with re-address mail but didn’t get far.  I remember the mail from downstairs that was delivered over the weekend and got that at the same time as lockbox arrived.  I really worked my ass off.  Courier Jim arrived incredibly early (thankfully) with the us mail.  Courier Mack didn’t get there until 11:30 and I was really starting to get anxious.  I really wanted to leave by 1 and at this rate didn’t look good for me.

The Lobby mail that arrived today arrived just as I was getting ready to leave.  I asked Susan if I could do it Wednesday as I really need to leave.  WHen I talked with Patti she could tell I was having a moment of Anxiety.

Part of the reason is I over heard Joel from Finance saying something about getting behind.  My mind raced.  I was sure that she was referring to a conversation I had with her last week.  I was thinking they were also talking about the pile of junk mail-okay mountain of junk mail on the floor by my chair.    Patti said or reassured me I was fine.  I would like to believe that.  I even told her I worry about my job.  I have known Patti my entire time at OPS/YMG and she has always been fair and wonderful to me.  It is quite possible I was becoming over tired and worried about getting everything I needed to do today done by the time I went out tonight.

When I left the garage I went to the store in West Haven and picked up the ingredients (again) for the dip Mom was going to make.  Would you believe at my age I couldn’t remember what constitutes as 1 lb of cheese?  I knew I was in trouble then.  A really nice lady helped me.  I got the crackers Mom wanted (actually she said get what I wanted).

After what seemed like forever to check out I drove to the bank and got money out for dinner.  I came home dropped everything off and then went to the pups.  I walked them, fed them, burped them (and played) with them.  Found out they also left me packages in the far corner of the office.  During all this Nancy and Olivia sent messages they had arrived in Hartford and would be home.  

I was home by 4:30.  MOm was too.  She thought there was a 4:30 service there wasn’t.  She tried again at 6.  While she was out I got showered and dressed and watched TV.  A short time later M&R arrived and we were off for the evening.

Moved Slowly

This is a definite slow day.  This morning did our regular routine for a Saturday.  The kitties have been fed, and have been let down into the cellar,  I cleaned out the litter boxes, and went back to sleep with the TV watching me...get the picture?
Peapod arrive just after 9:30.  I didn’t need to see them as Sky was running up the stairs.  The driver pulled into the neighbor’s (Hockey guy’s) driveway.  I asked her not to do it she explained it wouldn’t be for long and she figured it was mine.  I just shrugged my shoulders and resigned myself to the fact she will do it.   Please for the love of all that’s right next time listen to me.  BEsides there was plenty of room in front of the house!  I got every thing that I ordered and put it all away.  Another list is already started for next week.
The weather sites got it wrong again.  One of them said we were supposed to get rain this morning.  It was supposed to start sometime after 8:30.  Need I have to tell you it never came?  The sun fin…

REally Busy

I am so sorry I haven’t finished the weekend entries.  I just was too tired and Monday was busy.  I know I have my Florida adventures to write up but again.  Not enough time or energy lately.  
I am looking forward to next weekend as I am meeting up with Siduri and we are going to spend the day in the city and visit Peabody museum and have lunch.  On sunday is baby Giada’s Christening and I am really looking forward to that.  I haven’t met Giada yet but from the pictures her parents and grandparents post she is beautiful.
WE had some late night rain last night and early morning rain today.  We may have more as the week progresses but that’s okay.  Meteorologist Geoff Fox began his second week at his summer Gig at Channel 8 this week.  His first week went well even with some first time hiccups with the technology.  He is having a blast along with his colleagues and fans.
I received a letter from my pen pal Debi in Tampa and I did manage to read the whole letter in one sitting.  She is kee…

Sunday Objectives

As i was finishing up feeding the cats this morning I walked into the living room and found what looked like a hairball on the window sill that landed on the floor.  Ick  I don’t know why they have so many hairballs.  There is two more around the house.  Cleaned one up in the office upstairs the other day.
I let them downstairs already.  I actually am not sure if both went or just Sky.  I turned around after finishing cleaning up hairball number 2  and tiger was just sitting there.
My other objectives today would include laundry and church and of course bingo.  I know you are surprised about the church but it's time I go back.
Nothing is wrong but this is proactive.  I feel that when I don’t go to church for a long time my whole center seems off balance and things go wrong.  I want to prevent that from happening.  Considering I am also on the Ladies guild Board now.  I best do it.
I talked with Mama Roberta Friday night for an hour.  She told me about her trip to Colorado and how she …
