Thankful Thursday 2/14/2013

I think it’s been weeks since I did a Thankful Thursday post.  Let’s see where to start:

  1. I am thankful the snow is melting.  I really enjoyed it while it came down and it was nice to have a couple of days off but truthfully I was getting cabin fever. 
  2. I am thankful for my family, friends, job, volunteering.

I had a great day at work.  It was busy and I managed to get a lot done.  Everything about it is just wonderful.

Mom is not feeling well again.  It’s her stomach this time.  I am not sure about the incessant itching she had earlier this week.  She said the previous meds for is completely out of her system and she has not taken the new stuff yet.   She got some grocery shopping done and some other stuff too. 

I haven’t talked with Jim in a while.  He did call after the storm was over and compared storm stories with Mom.  I guess he is doing alright.  He has reserved a room for us in March for Jamie’s’ Confirmation ceremony.  The kids are doing well as well. 

I haven’t talked with Ethel since the combo birthday/Anniversary dinner last week.  I think she is all dug out from the storm for now.  I hope she had someone come and dig her out.  I plan on seeing her some time this weekend.

My Niece D is currently in rehearsals for a play in NY or NJ.   I have to actually pay more attention to her Facebook postings so I will better understand.  She posted a really beautiful picture of her and her Guy. 

It’s been week’s since I heard anything from D’s Brother J.  When he posts to face book I just reply quickly with Hey I miss you or some much goopy stuff that would probably make anyone gag.

Their younger brother Rob is off on vacation.  We don’t really see each other lots except through-you guessed it Facebook.  I can’t begin to explain the reasons.

Mom talked with Sis today.  She and BIL are no longer snowbound.  They were able to find someone to clear the snow from all of their doors (they have about four).  I plan on seeing them sometime this weekend as well.

All of their kids are doing great.   No really big news there.  We are still waiting for the newest members of the family to make their appearance.  One is due any day now and the other later on the spring.

My health well let’s see except for COPD that’s making its presence know I am doing okay.  I was rather achy this week but as I am writing this they seem fine.  It usually acts up just as I am going to bed. 

Well I am going to sign off for now I will see you all tomorrow.

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…
