Post New Year's Day Stress

I am totally exhausted and a little aggravated.  I left here just after 12:30 to  head to Dave’s house for the party.  I made arrangements also to meet with Nancy.  Before leaving here my stress level was elevated.

Why do you ask?  One word rhymes with Bomb.  It seemed every time I opened my mouth She would challenge every thing that came out of my mouth.   She didn‘t like the way my face looked   it looked raw.   Then she wondered why I was  taking so long to drop things off to the Chris’s.  First of all this stuff could have been delivered to everyone bright and early this morning.    Second I had a few minutes to chat and I took it.

Tonight when she got home and we were talking bout the success of the dip I brought to the party we started talking about my impromptu visit with Nancy and she asked how did they pay me.  When I told her she gasped and said that was a lot.  I got defensive and told her that it felet like it was a criticism.  She said I wasn’t a professional that I did this out of friendship.  I pointed this amount was what I charged last year and that for $15 for ten days was reasonable.

She is constantly questioning in a rude way I feel anything  I say or do and she claims were are just having a conversation about it.  It is very much a criticism and quite frankly I resent it.  I can’t remember the other incident today but it just is far too much. 

It sounded like she was going to get critical for my being late for Dave’s party.  Again not her call.  I explained what I had to do and he basically said I didn’t really have to be there exactly at 1.  Many  others didn’t come for nearly half an hour.  But if Dave did it to me or we would arrive later then the actual scheduled time then it would be okay.

I some times feel as though I am getting gas lighted by my family.  Oh you can’t do  such and such but it is okay for us to do it. 

My visit with Nancy was great.  We talked about the  adventure’s in puppy sitting their traveling and the holiday.  Preston  cuddled into my shoulder as I held him.  Packy according to Olivia  and Nancy gets very jealous of the attention Preston gets.  I guess you could say we were comparing notes on the dogs.  She also gave me a beautiful honey and vanilla soap and dish and some candy.  It was great.  They are really cool people and I am glad they are in my life. 

Dave’s party was great.  There was a lot of food and everyone loved the dip I brought.  A couple of people asked for copies of the recipe.  Of course he kept shoving food into peoples faces..  For the most part it was fun.

I stayed there until 5:30 and drove home.  I guess my driving annoyed others.  One blew his horn at me and then drove around me in 25 mile an hour zone on the right side.  I don’t think you are supposed to do that.    The rest of the ride home was uneventful.

When I got home Mom hadn’t come home from the event she said she had been invited to by M&T.  So I spent the time watching TV and discovered we have a new TV channel on our cable system .  It’s Cozi TV according to Wikipedia  it has been around a while and went mainstream this year.   I can’t remember the name of the channel it replaced but the upswing is I get to see Some early shows I haven’t seen in years.

Well it now after midnight so I am going to hit the sack…

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…
