Wednesday Mid Week Reflection

So it is that time again for Mid-Week reflection.  What has happened this week that impacted my life.  Well for me along with many in the Northeast was the biggest snow storm of 2013.  It like Thor’s Hammer to many cities and towns causing enormous consternation.  As of right now Clean up continues.  Some streets and roads have yet to be completely cleared of the snow.  It has irritated many because it makes for dangerous driving.

Roadways, businesses, and schools were all shut down  for several days for safety and protection until the storm passed. Many schools will be opened by Thursday.  I return to work today.  It was suggested that we make arrangements with our administrations to use our time and continue to remain home.  No.  Not going to happen.  I am already expecting mail to backed up from Friday.  Besides I can’t stay here another day.  I would be bored.

Milford had their share of accidents and storm related deaths.  Sadly someone had died of a heart attack while shoveling.  Two young boys were in a accident in the north section of the town.  They remain in stable condition.

Most of the activities for my woman’s club had to be rescheduled for next week.  That’s okay because well we are supposed to get more snow again at the end of the week.

My sister and her husband  were virtually trapped in their house by the snow.  They have at least 4 entrances and each of them were completely covered by the snow.

My SIL I don’t believe had any troubles other than the impassible roads.  Her children were safe.  One was in the City and the oldest son is in Washington state and I think he has to worry bout is rain.  Her youngest  probably had lots of snow and still digging out.  But he is Ambulance driver so probably spent a lot of time in New Haven.

I have been writing every day this week some times several times a day.  If you would like you can read them here. 

The aches and pains I spoke of earlier in the week are not as prevalent as they had been but they are still there.  I slathered on some Ben Gay last night to see if it would work.  It wasn’t helpful.
For Several Days now Mom has been having severe itching and has been unable to sleep.  She saw the doctor yesterday and is supposed to see a dermatologist today.  We are stumped at this point because she is still taking meds she has been for a while.  So we don’t think it’s the meds.  We thought it was the laundry detergent and the dryer sheets.  It hasn’t happened to me.  It is making her miserable.  She was given something yesterday to take away the itch and make her sleepy.  She slept for three hours yesterday and again afterwards until this morning.

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…
