Long and Busy

Good evening everyone I hope you are doing well.  I am very tired and still not feeling completely well. The shoulder is getting better but I still have some pain in the lower back (and when I am in the cold air and walking fast) and or when I yawn.  Although I did find I was able to lie down this afternoon with little or no problem.  I am not sure what that is about.

I went to work this morning for a few hours and got a lot done.  I was hoping to get there fairly early but after last night’s crappy sleep fest.  It wasn’t prudent.  Getting to the garage was somewhat of a chore.  I was hoping to park near the building but that wasn’t the case.  Public works was also doing some major snow removal at the intersections and caused some what of a delay.

After work I went to the nursing home for the Valentine’s Delivery.  The club every year makes home make cards to deliver to the residents of the nursing home (120 residents).  We then pick a day (usually before Valentines Day) and deliver them.  We were supposed to do it last week but because of the weather we couldn’t.  I found them upstairs waiting for Dr. Telka.  She had just spent time with a woman who turned 100 earlier this week.  We decided to serenade to her the Birthday song.  She was wonderful if not altogether with it.  We had to finish the rest of the wings and the first floor.  We were finished just after 2.  We stood around in the recreation room while there was another activity going on.  We talked about the storm and vacations.

After I said goodbye to DR.Telka (and the last of the girls was picked up) I came home.  Mom was no where to be found (she had been shopping) so I grabbed a make shift lunch (bread) and watched TV for a while.

Mom came home around 3:30.  I decided to take a relaxing bath and get into my pajamas.  Mom went to church.  After the bath I went back to bed and watched TV until Mom came home.

We had decided to have soup and sandwiches for Dinner.  She had home made chicken soup and made a grilled cheese and tomato sandwich on some Trader Joe’s exotic bread.  Do I really have to say it w as delicious?

While we had dinner we watched our regular PBS shows.  After dinner I headed back up stairs to watch NCIS.  It is still on now.  I think there are three more hours of this marathon.

We are supposed to get more snow this weekend.  (Whoopee!)  When I was leaving this morning there were flurries but stopped mid day.  The sun came out for a while too.  Late this afternoon the clouds rolled back in.  I wouldn’t be surprised if I looked out to the street lamp and see it snowing.

Tomorrow will be probably another full day of volunteering, family time, and church.  I also have to get ready for the week ahead.  I have to pay some bills this weekend too.


I hope your shoulder and back get better. This snow probably isn't helping :)

Thanks I hope so too. I really don't want to take time for the doctor. I personally think its COPD and I was diagnosed with that a long time ago but it went away (I thought).

Did you get a lot of snow? We got another couple of inches during the night..

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…
