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…

Yay Friday

I am so glad today is Friday.I woke up early again but stayed in bed for a bit.I didn’t lay down again after feeding the cats today.I did a little straightening up here and there.
I got a message from Livia last night letting me know I dated the check wrong and wanted a fresh one.I left another one with today’s date on it.I am just not sure when she is coming over.I didn’t want the house to look messed up after all the work she did.
The ride in was a bit anxiety filled.Several times I thought I was going to plow into the back of several cars.I wasn’t speeding but the cars in front of me didn’t seem to move.I was glad to get to the garage and then to the office.
In the morning I did some refunds and then spent time working on the readdress mail.It was about that time my guardian angel suggested I needed to do them (No kidding) and then as the afternoon progressed.She asked me to write up all that needs to be done because SR was upset that both of us were taking the beginning of next month…

i waited

I had been waiting since 10 to hear from AH my Easter Dinner host about dropping off the main dish to store in my refrigerator overnight.I was expecting her to call before coming. Well she called me around 4:30 to let me know that she didn’t need to come over she had managed to clean her own refrigerator.I had things that I wanted to do.
Liz ended up coming here for coffee and we got caught up with family news for the next hour.She brought me a choc bunny and flowers, and some sweets for breakfast and or desserts.She had mocked horror when I told her how the kitties were able to go in to a closet.She told me what was going on with her SIL in Waterbury and how this and the ride up to Waterbury was a bit much for Nelson.
I have been doing a few things here and there.Like folding clothes, doing the dishes, and very shortly cleaning up the bathroom-again.Earlier had the TV on and did some net browsing.
Oh and around 10 am this morning April the Giraffe finally had her baby.I can’t believe I …

I swear

I swear every time I go to do my taxes.I have issues whether it is internet connections, firewalls, or I have problems with my passwords.I started to get it set up around 8 and ended up using and I still have to fix it.Didn’t put info in that is needed.Will have to do it soon.
So Easter at my friend’s house.I have mixed feelings about it.It was a little hectic and awkward for me.The food phenomenal.The behavior of some really rude.I was asked to set the table yet this one woman who has only been here (in the country) five years doesn’t move.I didn’t want to wait for her to finish cutting something that could have been done in the kitchen.A few people spoke in Greek and when they know how to speak English whether it is limited or not.Everyone left me at the table with the old Greek lady who barely spoke English.I really didn’t appreciate it.The hostess interrupts her daughter while the daughter is speaking and doesn’t say excuse me.I let Roberta know when we were leavin…
