What did I do today?

This morning after I posted my previous blog entry I managed to get the clothes folded but not brought upstairs.  That I can put off for now.  I probably will have more to do on that front.

I managed to call the Mayor’s office to find out where to send the proposal Lawn-guy provided for me last week.  The nice lady transferred me to the sewer commission and I had to leave a message.  Shortly after that she called me back and told me to send it to her and she would forward it to the consult.  I am going to mail it shortly after my shower. 

I then did some pen pal work.  I found a new e-pal from Alice and Rebecca’s Pen pal Groups on Facebook.  That’s when I had computer problems.  The thumb drive I had the revised intro letter wouldn’t work.  I tried it on both computers.  I lost my documents that I had been using.   So I had to update the one I had and sent it via email to the new pal and will save it (eventually to the pen pal file on Google Drive for the times I need to email it.  I also organized the pen pal folder on it.  I renamed it to Pen pal folder and moved all the individual pen pal files into it.

When I messed up on the thumb drive I thought I would do a virus scan check on both computers.  The one on the PC upstairs is still going.  The one on the laptop finished a couple of hours ago and there are no problems.  The thumb drive (I really hate this one) is currently sitting on the floor where I threw it.  Apparently I have been not “ejecting” it from the computers right.  Now I don’t have any thumb drives and have to wonder how do you reformat one when you get it?  Now I have to start all over on the birthday list and password list I was working on.

I also paid some bills.  So I am caught up for now.  I have a few due next week.  It should be fine.

I got a call from my financial advisor that helped me set up the mutual funds I have an appointment on Friday morning.  This couldn’t have come at a better time.  Its something that Liz has been wanting me to check on.

I also did some cooking.  I was looking to find roasted potato recipes and I found some but I needed shallots, and garlic.  I have neither one.  However, I prepared the pork loin to be cooked.   The roasted potatoes will be have to be for another day.

I have a large cookie sheet and put oil in it and then opened the package and realized there were two in it and oiled them up and seasoned with Rosemary, Thyme, and a lot of Mrs. Dash.  The directions said to cook it at 425 degrees for 20-30 minutes per pound (I am thinking an hour and 20 minutes).  I have some frozen vegetables I can cook up.  I am already getting a list for the Grocery store ready.

I talked with my family today.  I sent a text to Jim to let him know how I did with the mayor’s office.  He was pleased by that and offered to get a transmittal letter.   I didn’t think there was a need for it.  I called Liz and told her about the FMLA being approved, the proposal submission (neither of these I told her about earlier in the week).   I also told her about the financial advisor appointment.

Now I am going to run to the post office.

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…
