Not slowing down

It is 8:30 and the storm is going strong outside.  The snow and ice is hitting the windows very hard.  So hard it sounds like the glass is breaking.  It hasn’t really let up all night.

The various reports I have heard and read is that Milford it self should get anywhere from 15 to 25 inches of snow by the time this is through tomorrow afternoon by 5. 

Governor Malloy issued a travel ban by 4 pm this afternoon.  Many of the reporters who had to be out in this weather noticed that almost everyone listened to the ban and stayed inside. 

I spent the afternoon watching TV, surfing the net and reading and answering emails.  One of them was from my brother J.  He wanted us to know that he reserved a room for us at the hotel Wyngate(?) in Allentown for the weekend of my nephew’s confirmation.  This particular hotel is literally right off the highway there and definitely down the street from Dorney Park.

Mom got up around 6 after the phone rang.  The call was from my Cousin Lee in NJ.  We were seeing comparing notes on the storm.  We also caught up on family news. 

Mom stayed up for a couple of hours and just went back to bed.  She wasn’t feeling any better really.  She is going to keep the heat up tonight just in case we do lose power it will turn off anyway.  I really don’t want to lose power.  I would get bored quickly if I couldn’t watch TV or get online.

I have actually turned off the lights and probably will go to sleep as I am tired

Ended up

Because I wasn’t feeling well last Thursday night  and the lack of sleep from it I barely did anything Friday.  I did some laundry, cleaned out one of the litter boxes, emptied the dishwasher only to fill it up again. I made myself an early lunch of steak and potato and had yogurt.  I was not anxious to eat too much as my shoulder still hurt. I think the aches and pains are from the amount of cheese I had in the last couple of days.   I fell asleep for the afternoon watching the X Men double feature.   I did fold some of the clothes and sheets and put more laundry in.  You are probably wondering where all these clothes are coming from.  Some of them have been there a few days and needed refreshing. When I didn’t fold the clothes I watched TV.  I actually sat through Hawaii 5-0 haven’t done that in months.  It's a good show.  It has done a few cross overs with the NCIS franchise (mostly the LA show) now there is some discussion prompted by articles that that H50 will do crossovers …

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…

Busy Friday

I spent a couple of hours working on mail and sending out refunds for the afternoon mailing.  By the end of the morning I spent it working on scanning until the end of  the day.  I  don’t feel I got a lot done but I did have some problems with a couple of the batches.
I did make an appointment with Courtney the health coach for next week.  I was beginning to think I missed an appointment but when I checked with her I found that I hadn’t.  It will be on Wednesday at 4:30.
I wasn’t sure I could eat anything chewy yet so I had broccoli and cheese soup for lunch.  It was good and I did chew on the left side of the mouth with no problem but as usual I probably used both sides.  I had been drinking lots of water at least I tried.  I had some coffee.
It was also refrigerator cleaning day at work.  I had forgotten and manage to lose a new coffee creamer that I put in there from Thursday next time that happens I am bringing in a cooler  so I don’t waste three dollars.  It's already on the nex…
