Wow this is quite a shock.

I was watching TV this morning when at the bottom of the screen the news that Pope Benedict XVI is resigning his papacy scrawled across.  He announced yesterday and then I read more here.  Mom was shocked when she heard this.  She has never known any other Pope to do this.  When she asked I said probably due to the Sex Abuse scandal.  Then I admitted I didn’t really know.  According to the article above now I do.

The first questions that pop into my head are What will happen next?  Well the process of finding a successor (for a lack of a better term).  The last time they did this  was eight years ago when his immanent was chosen and he became the leader of the Catholic Church.  How will the world react to this news?  What will this mean for the Catholic church will the rules that the Pope had made be rescinded?  Can they be rescinded?  According to this article much speculation has already started.

The reasons for his resignation slated to take affect at the end of this month were is his health and his age.  He has felt that if either were to be negatively affecting his position he would resign.  The article sites some of the issues that have been a part of his tenure.  All in all it will be interesting to see what happens and how it will affect the world in general.

Mom got up a short time and then went back to bed and is there now resting.  She wasn’t feeling well and I wouldn’t be surprised to have leftovers from last night.

When I finally got up it was sometime after 8.  Mom had already gone back to bed and I just hung out and got her papers from Saturday (it would have been very nice if you had Today’s Papers there but…). 

It has been raining all morning.  It is also foggy and sort of reminds me of Ireland, or the Industrial age.  Well if you have ever seen the pictures in history books you might know what I mean.

I made scrambled eggs and toast for lunch.  It went down fairly well with a minimal amount of pain.  It was simple and good.  I was hoping to have onions in it but we didn’t have any.

I am going to watch NCIS for a while until I get bored.

Ended up

Because I wasn’t feeling well last Thursday night  and the lack of sleep from it I barely did anything Friday.  I did some laundry, cleaned out one of the litter boxes, emptied the dishwasher only to fill it up again. I made myself an early lunch of steak and potato and had yogurt.  I was not anxious to eat too much as my shoulder still hurt. I think the aches and pains are from the amount of cheese I had in the last couple of days.   I fell asleep for the afternoon watching the X Men double feature.   I did fold some of the clothes and sheets and put more laundry in.  You are probably wondering where all these clothes are coming from.  Some of them have been there a few days and needed refreshing. When I didn’t fold the clothes I watched TV.  I actually sat through Hawaii 5-0 haven’t done that in months.  It's a good show.  It has done a few cross overs with the NCIS franchise (mostly the LA show) now there is some discussion prompted by articles that that H50 will do crossovers …

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…

Busy Friday

I spent a couple of hours working on mail and sending out refunds for the afternoon mailing.  By the end of the morning I spent it working on scanning until the end of  the day.  I  don’t feel I got a lot done but I did have some problems with a couple of the batches.
I did make an appointment with Courtney the health coach for next week.  I was beginning to think I missed an appointment but when I checked with her I found that I hadn’t.  It will be on Wednesday at 4:30.
I wasn’t sure I could eat anything chewy yet so I had broccoli and cheese soup for lunch.  It was good and I did chew on the left side of the mouth with no problem but as usual I probably used both sides.  I had been drinking lots of water at least I tried.  I had some coffee.
It was also refrigerator cleaning day at work.  I had forgotten and manage to lose a new coffee creamer that I put in there from Thursday next time that happens I am bringing in a cooler  so I don’t waste three dollars.  It's already on the nex…
