Well since its Thursday it is day four of being back at work.  It has been a long week I think.  I am constantly working at getting the piles down and continuing to keep current and semi organized.  I made the call to the Employee service center to discuss the future and retirement.  She referred me to two other teams that would be able to help me out figuring out if I should do more with my TIAA Cref and my retirement funds and everything that includes.  There is one more day and more phone calls to make no doubt.

Today the furnace was given its yearly “physical”.  The guy was here before I left and got last minute instructions and reassured me he would not let the cats out.  I couldn’t help myself on the way to work.  I kept thinking they were going to get out and I wouldn’t find them.  Well they were fine when I got home.  Anyway, it’s cleaned and ready to start up soon.  I am not sure when I want to start the furnace up as it gets a little warmer during the day still.  I just realized it was this time last year I was starting to put the furnace on as it got colder. 

I met with Debra today it was the first time we have actually seen each other in a month.  It’s been phone sessions mostly because of the health and scheduling.  Even though we talked last week we focused more on the upcoming Benlysta infusions and how they are going to make me feel.  We talked about work, family, and of course the cats.  Our next session is going to be on October 1.  It looks like we will be meeting on Thursdays from now on too.

I haven’t heard from the Sleep study Center yet.  I don’t know if I should call them tomorrow or not.  I am really anxious to get this done and over with and soon.  I don’t think I have any appointments next week except for Debra.

I heard from my pal in Australia this morning.  Mary is having tough times right now as her father had been in the hospital.  At the same time it looks like she will become a grandma very soon.

 I still have several letters from Donna, Diane, and the others to write and that’s my intention this weekend.  Saturday is fairly quiet activity wise.  I can focus on these letters and manage to not feel so guilty.

Dinner was take out from Outback.  It was steak, steamed vegetables, mashed potatoes, and the bloomin Onion Ring.  I can feel its effects on me already.  It was delicious of course and easy to clean up from.

Well I need to go to bed as I am getting tired.  I hope you all had a great Thursday.

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…
