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

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 …
