ggrrrrr

I should have printed out my password lists as I am with the pups and I can’t remember some of the access stuff I need for certain sites.  I do have my memory stick but I can’t seem to get it into their tower connection.  I remember the Face book one and a few others but that’s it.  I remembered one of my Gmail accounts but that has all my NCIS stuff on it.
I had a headache this morning so I stayed in bed as long as I could and the kitties cooperated.  I even was lying on the couch after they got fed.  Tiger even sat on me for a while.  I think they were a little miffed because they knew I was leaving (they were playing with the overnight bag).  I got ready around 8:30 to be here by 9.  Unfortunately I got here at 9:30.  I was chatting with Neighbor Sylvia (I told her about something that happened to me yesterday and I will talk about it in a minute) and she was kvetching about same subject matter.

So what happened yesterday?  The guy who was flipping the house over the last several mon…

stick a fork

How does that saying go?  Stick a fork in I am done?  Well that’s how I feel about today.  Thursday is done and it's one more day till the weekend.  Work was good had J help with the readdress mail it was down spiked and then getting to a normal range again.    Tomorrow should be the same  focus.
After work I headed to Subway and DQ for dinner and dessert.  While there I ran into Chairman Phil.  We discussed some DTC business and local stuff.  Including the death of one of Milford’s finest.  The Officer committed suicide earlier this week.  Soon after the discussion I came home.
When I got home I put the dessert(ice cream sandwiches) in the freezer and I had my sandwich.  The kitties started to come down and ambled around and eventually came to me.  Nice.  THey did their own stuff while I ate dinner and watched TV.
I called Liz while starting my laundry.  I invited her to go see Flashback tomorrow night.  She told me they saw them once and they were awful.  They are supposed to be th…

Thankful Thursday June 25, 2015

I am thankful for my family warts and all. I am thankful for the medical profession who strived to help me on the road to recovery.  I continue to get stronger and better every day. I am thankful for my job and coworkers for their support and love. (yes I said love too) they are my extended family. I am thankful for the home I have. I am thankful for the friends who are in my life. I am thankful for the two kitties that have brought so much to my life. I am thankful my bil continues to recover and get better from his fall last  month.. I am thankful the weather is changing for the better again.  We did need the rain though. I am thankful for the organizations I am involved with as it keeps me busy.

I was so tired last night after the long day I had I really didn’t stay long on the computer.  So I had to do this this morning.  
work was crazy busy.  Just when I thought I would catch up on the mail I had a deluge.  Happily JN offered to help an…

I was a little Premature

I think I was a bit premature in cancelling my appointment with DG yesterday.  As predicted the storm started just about 4 and it was thundering and lightening but by the time I got through to West Haven it was literally clearing up.  It didn’t help traffic at all though I ended up getting home by 5.  An hour later it started to thunder and eventually rain again.  According to the weather teams the storm moved through the state quickly but not before causing damage in many areas including Torrington (northwest) and North Haven.  The sky had some funky colors before it cleared up too.
Dinner was a couple of smart ones and bread w/italian dressing.  It was good the first smart one wasn’t very filling so that’s why i did the other stuff.  I cleaned up the kitchen and played with the kitties and then went upstairs after a while.

I did talk with Liz and they were fine and so was everyone else who was in the storm’s path.  we will catch up again on Thursday or Friday.
The rest of the night the…

We are supposed to

I am debating whether or not to call D and cancel our appointment for this afternoon as we are supposed to get torrential rains and a threat of a tornado.  However, I think that tornado is supposed to be for the northern part of the state but it is supposed to start around 3 this afternoon.. .  I knew it was coming before I left the house so I closed some windows and left some open so the cats don’t get overheated

I was so proud of myself as I had brought a smart one to eat at lunch.  well when I went to get it I discovered the box was empty. but left in the freezer.  I don’t remember it being empty when I put it in there this morning but I was also so tired a mack truck could have driven over me and I wouldn’t have noticed..  I am really not that upset by it and it is not the first time it's happened in the office.

Other than the stolen lunch work has been good.  I mentioned to my Team Lead/super my concerns regarding my guardian angel.  Apparently he gets it from her too.  It look…

Father's Day and Summer 2015

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you had a great weekend.  Despite the crazy weather we had (that was predicted) I did have a great weekend.  

Saturday afternoon we had our car wash unfortunately it was called off after 2 due to unforeseen weather coming.  We really didn’t have that many cars come for the car wash but I don’t know how much we made all together (tickets were sold prior to event as well).  I stopped at mcdonald’s on the way home.  One of the Steak burgers and shake.   ONce I got home i watched TV and took a nap with the kitties.  The rest of the night did some laundry and watched TV.

Sunday I woke up early to the sound of rain and thunder.  The thunder eventually ended but the rain continued until mid morning.  I eventually got up and fed the cats and then watched TV for a while with Tiger on my lap.  We stayed like that for awhile then she got up and I got up around 8:30 and started getting ready for bingo.

I arrived at the Nursing home around 9:30.  I chatted with the rece…

What's going on?

Along with everyone else this week saw the pictures coming across the TV Screen that showed the events that occurred in South CArolina where Dylan Roofus shot nine people in a church after Bible study.  It brought back memories of Sandy Hook Shooting at least for me.  There have been stories of the background of Dylan Roofus.  The backgrounds of a couple of the victims.  There is a report that the Father of DR gave him a gun.   i actually have to read the articles that have culminated over the last two days.  My prayers and thoughts to the victims and their families and friends and the entire town having to deal with this.

One of our middle schools had to be shut down two weeks ago because of Bomb Threat.  Well a 19 year old Maryland Man was taken into custody yesterday for making those threats.  He is in a Maryland Jail now.  Why would this person do this?  I believe I heard or read that he took the screen name of an acquaintance and made the threat.

Work went well but was glad the wee…

I Thought

I thought for sure I would be extremely tired by lunch time today.  I wasn’t though.  Why you ask?  Well I woke up several times during the night.  I pretty much stayed awake from 2 am until it was time for me to get up for the day.  Why you ask?
Well I had a headache for most of yesterday as I mentioned in my Thankful Thursday post and after eating and watching some TV I guess I fell asleep until I discovered no kitties on the bed.  I went in search of them.  I found Sky in his usual spot.  It took me a few minutes to find Ms Tiger.  She was in a semi new spot behind the loveseat.  I had called out to her before finding her there.  She eventually came out and so I spent time with both of them.  At one point I found myself following TL and decided against it.  I just went up stairs and did the thankful thursday post and watched tv for a while.  I did notice they do still curl up with each other and sleep.
They didn’t come up until nearly 5.  They each sat in their own windows or out in …

I can’t believe this week is almost over again.  It went by fairly quickly. That could be a good thing and a bad thing.   Monday Night I had dinner with my Friend Dave at Olive Garden and we had a good time.  It was our standard “let’s catch with …

Rain

It is very ironic when we wish or hope for something like rain and when it comes it comes as too much.  The rain started sometime around 3.  I could hear it come down so I got up and closed the windows.  It wasn’t really coming in but the window sills were damp sticky.  I am thinking if I left the sun room windows open I would be mopping up a lot of water on the ledges.  In the end it will be good for the lawns, gardens and fields and orchards and perhaps the rivers and lakes.  
This rain storm caused some problems on the road this morning.  A truck ended up going in the wrong direction and over the embankment.  It caused a back up both north and south bound and even though I left at 7:20 I was still five minutes late.
Work was good.  The mail seemed really high in volume maybe that’s because I got to it before my Guardian Angel.  It was done but gave me more re-address mail to work on.  Wheee.  We received an email from administration (the Dean and Assistant Dean of Med School) trying …

The Mountain

None of the movies or regular shows were holding my attention last night..  Not the hobbit movie, the Jurassic Park 3 movie, or the final Harry Potter Movie.  For the regular shows the L&O marathon are showing eps I have seen recently.  

I did some laundry but after awhile I decided to finish it today.  I am all set for the week.  

The kitties spent a lot of time out back watching the world from the back door and their perches along the windows.  They were pretty quiet in the afternoon despite the fact I found “yak” in the corner of the room.  Not sure when it happened but wasn’t much of an issue anymore.  When it was time for me to go to bed they stayed downstairs.   I decided some time after 1 this morning that I would sleep down there.  Sky on his usual spot and me on the sofa and Tiger on my legs for the next few hours.  It was daylight when I woke up and the kittens were playing.  We went through our normal routine.  When I told Liz about it she couldn’t believe it.   When I to…

Early Morning Wake Up call

You would think it being Saturday Morning that I would get a chance to sleep in right?  No.  After being woken up by Sky with his normal meowing  at 5:15 in the morning.I heard a loud crash.  It was Tigerlily.  After she gotten up on the mantel.  The few items left on the mantel were on the floor including two framed pictures.  There was broken glass almost everywhere.  The box of sheep that Mom gotten also all over the floor but miraculously not broken that I could see. I had to reset the Yale anniversary clock I got years ago.  I cleaned up the glass and put the pictures on the coffee table.

Once I got the glass picked up and straighten up the mantel scarf I decided to clean out the litter boxes and then get their breakfast.  It was just about then that one of them literally got underfoot and tripped me.  I had dropped the water bowl onto a plate that was in the sink.  It broke.  I scolded them for all that had happened.  It was not starting out to be a good morning.

Once all that was…

I have been so tired this week

I was tired every night that I fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow. I wanted to watch TV a few times this week and couldn’t.  I am hoping to continue the trend of a full sleep tonight and I may even go as soon as finishing this entry.

Tuesday I didn’t meet with DEbra.  I just wasn't feeling good and I needed to come home.  We were supposed to have a phone session Wednesday but never connected.  I thought about calling her but I have been fairly busy at work.  I am not sure if we'll be meeting the rest of June or not.  She is supposed to be vacationing a few times this summer.

Wednesday was a crazy ass day.  I had everything done early and basically had to find things to do until I left at 2:30.  I left work early thinking I had an appointment w/Dr. Sonia.  I got there on time only to discover that it was cancelled when I was there last time.  I should have noted that in my notes from last time.

That night was the Woman’s Club Rita’s Italian fundraiser.  The girls did th…

Work is doing good.  For the first time I am so caught up there is nothing on my desk except the things that are supposed to be there.  However I know that will change eventually.  There is a union march this afternoon after work for Jobs securit…

My Weekend

My weekend seemed to fly by again.  After getting the lab work done and going shopping  I took some time to relax with the kittens sleeping at my feet.  NCIS was on the TV.   I was hoping to hook up with Roberta to ride to the Senior home but it never came to fruition.    She missed out on some fun!

As usual I was the first to arrive from the group. Then everyone began to arrive and we started decorating the area where the dance was going to be.  The administrator was already setting up the refreshments (and there were a lot).  While we were waiting on the entertainment to arrive I took the opportunity to visit with Neighbor Kim’s grandfather AL,  It was a relatively quick visit but he looked good and remembered me (and that’s good for 90 plus years).    The girls and I were dancing to a lot of various songs and (yes we included the residents).  I really surprised many with the amount of dancing I did.  I even danced with my friend “Alan J”.  He is also in his 90’s and was a prominent …

Motivation

I am finding it hard to get motivated this morning.  I have been up since 5:30 thanks to Sky.  I had to clean up vomit of sorts under the bed from one of them.  I have no idea which one but I suspect it was from the kibble.  I still have the blue wilderness left and though before opening the other bag of the  “new stuff” that I could finish that.  I may have to rethink that rationale.

This morning I have to get bloodwork done and I am not looking forward to it.  The Lab opened at 7:30 but I suspect again that it will be busy.  After that I need to go grocery shopping.  

I also have to get a gift for my sister.  I spoke to my BIL and he says they are still having the “surprise party” tomorrow afternoon.  He thinks Liz knows about it already but he isn’t sure.  

Later on this afternoon is the Spring Dance at Carriage House Senior home and it should be fun.  Its only for a couple of hours but I can’t wait.  I hope it is a huge success because we can do it again next year as well.

I better ge…
