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.

Moved Slowly

This is a definite slow day.  This morning did our regular routine for a Saturday.  The kitties have been fed, and have been let down into the cellar,  I cleaned out the litter boxes, and went back to sleep with the TV watching me...get the picture?
Peapod arrive just after 9:30.  I didn’t need to see them as Sky was running up the stairs.  The driver pulled into the neighbor’s (Hockey guy’s) driveway.  I asked her not to do it she explained it wouldn’t be for long and she figured it was mine.  I just shrugged my shoulders and resigned myself to the fact she will do it.   Please for the love of all that’s right next time listen to me.  BEsides there was plenty of room in front of the house!  I got every thing that I ordered and put it all away.  Another list is already started for next week.
The weather sites got it wrong again.  One of them said we were supposed to get rain this morning.  It was supposed to start sometime after 8:30.  Need I have to tell you it never came?  The sun fin…

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…

Sunday Objectives

As i was finishing up feeding the cats this morning I walked into the living room and found what looked like a hairball on the window sill that landed on the floor.  Ick  I don’t know why they have so many hairballs.  There is two more around the house.  Cleaned one up in the office upstairs the other day.
I let them downstairs already.  I actually am not sure if both went or just Sky.  I turned around after finishing cleaning up hairball number 2  and tiger was just sitting there.
My other objectives today would include laundry and church and of course bingo.  I know you are surprised about the church but it's time I go back.
Nothing is wrong but this is proactive.  I feel that when I don’t go to church for a long time my whole center seems off balance and things go wrong.  I want to prevent that from happening.  Considering I am also on the Ladies guild Board now.  I best do it.
I talked with Mama Roberta Friday night for an hour.  She told me about her trip to Colorado and how she …
