Batton Down the hatches

All day long people were talking about the impending storm that is coming.  We have heard almost different forecasts.  Most of them agreed it was to all end by Saturday some time.  Anyway people at work were making plans to miss work tomorrow because of the storm.  I am also among those.  I plan on going in tomorrow but if it gets really bad then I am leaving early.  I probably will not be going in to work on Saturday either.

Most of the schools around the state have already cancelled school for tomorrow.  Most businesses and stores have also closed as well.  I was able to cancel the Valentines Delivery for Saturday and the only time that is available is Sunday afternoon.  I have sent the info to T but haven’t heard from her yet.

When I got home tonight I could hear Neighbor Don gathering wood for his wood burning stove for the next several days. He has it all stacked and stored in places that he has access to and won’t run out.  Literally.    He is already planning on not going to work tomorrow so he will be home all weekend.  He has Kerosene heaters if they are needed and the snow blower is ready to be used when it all stops Saturday or Sunday.

The following is my answer to one of my groups “prompts” and here it is:

Since the weather reports have been saying that we are expecting a big storm this weekend t hey have changed dramatically.  I will be working this morning and if the snow hasn’t arrived by later on this afternoon then I will be staying until six to work on the scanning project.  Then mostly like relax for the night.

Before the reports of the storm came I was planning on working on Saturday morning ( part of me was being extremely cynical saying it won’t be much because well that’s usually what has happened in the last snow storms.) and then do the Valentines Delivery but that has now been changed to Sunday afternoon.  So now I probably will stay home work on Taxes and do laundry.

Sunday will a full day of Volunteering and church (again it all depends on how much we get in the snow and if my neighbors have started digging us out or not).  I probably will relax and get ready for the week ahead at work.

 Mom came home earlier than she planned from Bridges meeting.  She had already had dinner and I was just finishing mine up.  We went to the garage to drop off her car and let me tell you I was so aggravated by the time I got home.

First  She parks right in the middle of the parking lot .  Where no one can actually move around her.  There were cars at the gas pumps and I see the tow truck trying to move a car on the line.  I had to pull around a car by the garage door and Mom was already frazzled because she had to drive in the dark.  She didn’t like me yelling at her.  I trying to explain I needed to get maneuver around the cars.  I came really close to telling her to walk.  She sulked until we got home.

I told her about the problem I am having with my side and when I gave one explanation she was rude about it.  Then she saw I had my boots on and she made a comment about me wearing them all day.  I had said to her that I take them  off.  She didn’t hear me.  So I tried a third time.  That time she heard and understood.  I really shouldn’t have to explain myself.

For some reason when everyone hears a snow storm is coming their common sense goes right out the freaking window.


Time for you to batten down the hatches :)

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…
