Another Week has begun


Another week has begun and another week I am still home.  I made the appropriate phone calls at 7:30 to my Team lead but it was to voice mail.  I took the chance and called my co-worker and friend Lee Ann to keep her abreast of the situation.  Come to find out she was taking today off. I also told her of the most recent additions to the health list.   Including the TB exposure.  I probably should not have done that but I have already told a few of my neighbors.  I did include the reassurance that the Doc said not to worry about it.  Anyway she said just do as the Doctor says.  Then I accidently called Janet.  Don’t ask.  WE talked for a short time but told her I wasn’t coming in yet.

I slept downstairs last night on the couch.  It was fun.  If a little uncomfortable.  I did it because at least one (Tiger) wouldn’t be coming upstairs and so that’s why.  They both slept on my legs for most of the night.  As dawn nearly approached they became “playful”.  They decided to start wrestling to the point of Tiger hissing at Sky.

I guess I could say I was testing the theory of having a bedroom down here in the future like Liz suggested.  It isn’t quite the same but it has merits.

Since we have been up the kitties have gotten fed and have been chasing and meowing at each other (almost like a Marco Polo that humans do).  They ran upstairs when the landscaper stopped by with a proposal and the bill.  The proposal was to get money from the city to do some work from when they installed the sewer hookup.  When I asked Jim about it he suggested I call the Mayors office or the sewer department.  I think he is writing up a script for me to have when I call them.





While was waiting for him I called my office line and to check messages and found out the leave coordinator had called me last week.  I never thought to check messages. One of the calls was from the leave coordinator to let me know that they received the paperwork and needed to ask a question but they answered it themselves based on the last leave request. Anyway they are going to use my sick time and then vacation time.  Bottom line they approved my leave.  I called Liz to let her know the status.  I think I need to call benefits before she calls back and asks if I did to plan for the future.  At least that’s one thing off the mind (FMLA).

I have to prepare for the 4th District meeting this Thursday.  I offered the house as a meeting place and now I think it’s time to get those slipcovers ordered.  If I do order them I hope they come in time for the meeting.  I also have to finish the minutes from last meeting and the other two.

Right now though I am really anxious to update a few other files and get letters written.  I have some errands to run later…

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…
