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.

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…
