Dear Friends:
Happy Monday!  This weekend was pretty good.  Saturday afternoon I had a surprise visit from a classmate from elementary school and High school.  We follow each other on Facebook and haven’t really seen each other since graduation from Live Oaks.  It was a really great time.  She lives in Wallingford CT but she was at this end of the state because her daughter is in the middle of wedding preparations.  We spent about an hour talking to each other until it was getting late for me.
I still had to go to the store for Mom before taking off for Debbie’s house in Wallingford.  I ran to the Adams store down the street to pick up some Molasses for Mom and just as I was checking out I had a dizzy spell.  By the time I got to the car it had passed.   Then I went to Costco and got some stuff and I had no problems but I did see a couple of people I knew with their families
Once I got home I got ready for my trip to Debbie’s.  I left before 6 and stopped at D&D to …

Dear Friends:

Good Saturday Morning to you!  It is a beautiful morning.  I was up early to move along the laundry I left in the machines.  I  ended up going to sleep right after I posted yesterday’s entry.

I have been to the dentist appointment already and haven’t done all that much.  Just folded clothes and tried with little success clearing out the dryer vent.  Other than that I am up here while Mom is cooking.  I have told her if she wants me to do anything to call me.

My Nephew Rich came over and fixed the kitchen windows that have been giving us trouble.  It turns out that he forgot to take off certain things that protect it during transportation and his brother thought they had to be there.  Anyway it was great to see him.

I talked with Debbie to confirm I was coming.  She was saying that the city just finished paving her street as well.  I still have to get her a birthday card and I will get it on the way to the cat feeding.

I probably could update files an…

Dear Friends:
    It has been a really far out day.  First off I got very little sleep and I overslept.  I left the house real late and managed to avoid getting into a traffic jam.  Unfortunately the route I decided to take was long and Anxiety rising.  Let’s just say I was rather late.  This has got to stop.  I have to leave at least half hour early or something.  There was a bad accident on the highway that caused the delay.
    Work went well despite my lateness.  I got right to work on the re-address mail and and that was most of the day as the volume of mail was very light.  The daily stuff was done fairly early.  I was getting really silly when at one point I had read a name and I thought it read Alka Seltzer.
Email invitations went out this week to have a meet and greet with the New Yale President next week.  The Dean of the Med school urged managers and supervisors to let their staff attend this event.  I won’t be able to attend the inauguration because it is du…

Dear Friends:

It is after 1 am in the morning and for some unexplained reason I can’t sleep.  I was in bed by midnight right after I posted my last entry and I had my eyes closed and was cuddled up in my brand new bed sheets.  Yet I couldn’t actually sleep.  Then all of a sudden I heard my phone ping.  It was a text message from Jim.

It was a lovely text to let me know he was thinking of me and wanted to say good night.  That really made my day.  It is weird when you are thinking of someone and that person seems to know and does something like calling or sending messages.  My intention was to send him a message as well.  I wanted to let him know I had heard from Kristina and   was tickled.  I just didn’t want to do it while he was sleeping.  He should be getting up in about three hours anyway for his after midnight snack and work session he does for himself.  I have to say my family has weird sleeping habits.

In order to get back to sleep I have been reading various…

Dear Friends:
It was a beautiful morning.  Despite the fact I got up late I still left the house before 7:30.  I didn’t see the cat this morning but will take care of that tonight.  I made it to work with no problems.  Traffic seemed to go smoothly.  I am not sure if that was because of the edict that came from the Governor last night due to the massive electrical problem on Metro-North.  As Janet and I said this morning glad we don’t have to use the train.  
Talked with Mom this morning.  She was very sharp with me about wanting to know what time I would be home.  The way she said it made it sound like she wanted to know what time I was getting out of the dentist. I was telling her already.   I told her I would be home by six at least.  Have I mentioned I can’t wait until this Meet and Greet is over with?
Hey guess what?  I got an invitation to Yale President Salvoy’s inauguration ceremony on Thursday October 10th!  I also got an email regarding other activities and st…

Dear Friends:

I must start off with an apology for not writing yesterday but I was far too frustrated and tired to even type.  I hope I can explain it well enough so that people understand and hopefully i can understand better.

I had called Mom early in the day to see how she was and she told me she was upset with me because my room was horrendous (I didn’t think it was) and she had to pay Olivia extra to clean it.  My arguemnt was just what the hell are we paying her to do exactly?  I explained to her that my desk isn’t going to get clean any time soon.  I didn’t have any clothes on the floor and the windows were cleaned.  All I wanted her to do is to freaking change the sheets and make my bed and vacuum the room.  Olivia has the audacity to question if I knew she was coming?  Who the hell cleans their house before a cleaning lady comes?  WTF is the point of that?

Guess what that bitch will no longer be doing my room.   I checked out this site to see just what the …

Dear Friends:
Its been a very busy Monday.  I woke up late and rushed to get ready and get to the cat by a decent hour.  I did make time to get online for some unexplained reason.  I just can’t do that many more times.  There was an issue that arose that I have to make sure if i see a certain document that it gets to the right person.  I Have been giving it to one of the insurance teams and I found out it goes to someone else.  The manager was a little put out but I don’t remember getting a whole lot of them and when I did I gave them to the point person on the insurance team.
I was able to get the mail opened by 4:15 but not completely delivered to the teams.  I will do that in the morning.  Along with the rest of the re-address mail and postage tallies.  Tomorrow should be fairly smooth sailing.
On the way to see the Hematologist I stopped and got some coffee.   I think I am going to be real sorry in a short while when I finally put my head down for the night even tho…

It has been a long and busy day.  It all started around 7.  I got up showered and dressed and got the dogs out for their morning walk and made sure things were ready for Nancy and Patrick’s return this evening.  They were supposed to come home by 7 but unexpectedly returned by 4.  I had received a couple of text messages from them while I was out with Mrs S this afternoon.
I made it to 8:30 mass at ST Mary’s where we welcomed back DEacon John HOffman who had been living in Florida this past year until the unexpected death of Mrs. Hoffman.  I gave Mr. Hoffman a hug after church.  I then came home and waited for Mrs. S.
MRs. S came after 1.  We then headed to Woodruff Road and that’s where she did the door knocking for the next two and half three hours.  She spoke to many who wanted to really talk with her over many issues.  It gave me an opportunity to see a part of milford that I don’t see often.  The homes around there are beautiful.
When I got back to the …

Dear Friends:
It is Saturday night  the pups had their mid afternoon walk after I had a ten minute snooze fest. We stopped to see the Grandparents downstairs and they were watching TV and reading.  I sat with Ruth for a bit and she was telling me about the book she was reading. It was one of Jane Austen's books earliest editions.  It was one I haven’t read. (then again I haven’t really read any of hers).  I let the dogs stay down if they felt like it They both came up after about 15 minutes.
Around 5:30 or so I took off for the cat and fed her.  I stopped at Stop and Shop and got a salad and some fruit cups.  I fed the dogs and I had my salad and then called Mom.  I chatted with her and then took the guys for a walk.  The wind was pretty strong.  We stopped at the grandparents and they shared the flying saucer with me :)  Packy is still downstairs and Preston is in the other room.
I got a Blair Academy google alert this afternoon and immediately thought of James.  …

Dear Friends:
Wow had a great sleep from 10:30 on last night.  I got up only a few times and Preston did sleep in the bed right next to me.  As daylight approached I could hear Packy (the other dog) walk around and was a little nervous he left packages.  Happily I didn’t see them when I got up to check emails.
This morning was a fairly busy morning.  I had to get the dogs up and walked before I left to feed Junior and head back to the house to get my phone and then head back to town to help sell the bracelets until 12:30.  The rest of the day was going to be quiet.  
I had gotten an email from Dr. T reminding me about the bracelet selling activity last night.  She wanted make sure she wasn’t the only one doing it.  I don’t blame her.  She has a lot to do.  She is a teacher in Waterbury and has all classes to prepare for, papers to grade, etc.  We don’t have anything more this month.  We do have stuff next month though.
I heard from Chairman Phil this morning.  He approve…

Dear Friends
    It is Friday night and its quiet time.  The pups are on their assigned pillows/chairs in the bedroom.  I have been updating my Google Documents Ledger and surfing the net.  I have been here since 5.  I spent a short time with Grandma and Papa.  The pups came to me and of course preston sat on my lap and began to lick my face.  AFter the visit I came up here and settled in.
AFter a while I fed them a treat and their dinner and then I walked them.  I took a look around and noticed a few things.  The two mice who had been upstairs are now in the computer room/office.  Its much easier than going up the stairs all the time.  I think it would be much easier to watch TV in the bedroom as I am not sure if the Preston is allowed on the sofa in the living room..  It would seem Nancy has been training him to sleep on the pillow on a chair in the bedroom instead of on their bed.
Work went really well today.  The mail volume was exceedingly light and that allowed me…
