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.

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 …
