Crazy Busy Day

This day has been crazy busy.  It all started by me getting up around 6 and getting the kitties fed and relaxing before getting ready for the ultrasound.  I was really hungry and in need of coffee and decided that when it was over I would treat myself to DD Pumpkin spice coffee and breakfast.

I managed to leave the house by 7:45 and get to the hospital with no problems I did bring water with me for the trip home as it was very hot and it was not even 8:30.  I got to the hospital and to the clinic (for lack of a better term) signed some papers and chatted with a woman who was getting another test.  The time flew by and it was my turn for the ultrasound.  There was a student observer and the tech was efficient, pleasant, and lovely.  She did the ultrasound and then took the pictures to the doctor to look and came back said I was done.  By then it was 9.  It seemed a lot later.

AS I had said I stopped by the DD and got my breakfast and headed home.  It was nearly 9:30 then and Livia was well into her job of cleaning the house.  I had already explained to her that the guys were coming around 10 and we decided that the kitchen floor could be done in two weeks.  While she cleaned I ate out back and then went upstairs.  I asked her about using those things to hold sheets on bed (they sort of look like the garters for stockings) we did those.  At one point.  The kittens by this time were either in the closet or under the bed.  I watched TV and got on the computer. 

The Rug guys came around 10:30 and we chatted about what was to be done and a little about their history (my way of getting to know them) I asked Livia to be sure the door was shut in the bedroom and they got started.  It took about an hour for them to do the work.  There were some spots that were not coming out but overall they did an awesome job. I paid them and gave them $20 tip.  I just have to move things back for the most part.  Not a lot just some area rugs and chairs and stuff like that.

Livia was finished after they left and we discussed the next time she would be here.

I had gotten a call from Dr. T inviting me to go take a look at a nursing home in Ansonia that we may be doing the Veteran’s Day service at instead of the other place. We made arrangements to meet at her house and drive there (I offered) by the end of the Day I got an email letting me know that Roberta would join us.

After everything was quieting down I was checking Facebook and found Roberta had key situation (Papa M) inadvertently taken them with him to work and she had to be somewhere.  Well I found out she walked to her appointment just over a mile down the road in the heat.  I left her a message and told her to call me I would pick her up.   Instead I called the salon and told her I was on my way.  I brought water with me and teasingly threatened her if she did this again.  So we had lunch at Wendy’s and then went to Papa’s office and got the keys.  I dropped her off at the house and then went to the post office.

After the post office (no didn’t get anything) I headed home.  The kitties had not come downstairs yet but I went upstairs.  I tried to stay upstairs to give the rugs a chance to dry but I needed a few things like looking for the thumb drive I have had downstairs all week.  It’s gone. I have looked everywhere.  I fell asleep and so did they. 

Eventually we all went down and they walked on the rugs and I did too but barefoot.  I made dinner and had it up here.  I had a bowl of cereal ate it down there.  I did close the doors and locked them.

Since I couldn’t find the other thumb drive I used the one in Mom’s office.  Unfortunately, my old computer is slow and it was updating and doing a whole of stuff that aggravated me so I was able to retrieve an older version of an intro letter for pen paling.  I may have to do something with that computer I just don’t know what.

I talked with Jim today.  I wanted to let him know about the rug job but I woke him up so I didn’t stay long.  Tonight I did hear from my nephew James.  He is great.  He sounds excited about school this year and he told me his classes.

>English III

 >College Algebra


 >Honors Economics

 >A.P. U.S. History

 >Spanish 4

He admits it will be challenging but he has always been very smart so I think he will do well.  I haven’t heard from his sisters yet but that’s okay.

I had spoken to Liz a few times today.  The last time was to BS and she was having dinner.  I told her about the thumb drive debacle. She laughed because she didn’t know what I would find on Mom’s.

I heard from Mama Joanie today.  She sounded tired and weary.  She said she has good days and bad days.  She told me that Oxford, Monroe were among a few schools that didn’t close due to the heat.  Most if not all schools did this today but as the rug guys and I discussed how different things were compared to when we went to school?  For example we never had early dismissal when it was hot especially in June.  We may have had early dismissals for winter and snow but we had snow days too.

Well its getting late and I have another long day tomorrow.

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 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…
