    Another busy day has passed.  I left here shortly after 7 and managed to get to work just about quarter of.  I started early on some of the work.  I did the readdress mail for two hours, opening the mail when it came in and continuing to add to the readdress mail, I sorted EOBs and delivered some of them.  I am glad it is pay day as there are bills coming due.

    Even though traffic was not bad today I am going to try and start taking the train in to work.  It would mean I have to leave no later than 7:15 and go to West Haven train station.  It’s a ten minute ride and it would include having to connect to one of the shuttles that the university has there.  IT may also mean taking the hospital shuttle or even the bus that way.  In the past few days the traffic hasn’t been the greatest even if I left early enough.  With the winter coming up I would like to be able to find viable alternative methods instead of actually driving in it.

    I realize that I have to drive from home to the station and if the weather is bad it could lead to delayed schedules, roads not ready to be travelled etc.  I could save myself the 150 dollars for the monthly parking.  Although I just found out that parking at the station is six bucks daily and free at night and weekends.

    After work I headed up to Debra’s office for our session.  Man it felt like years since we actually saw each other and it has only been two weeks.  I made a list of things I wanted to cover with her (instead of jumping around as I usually do).  We talked about work, Health, Facebook, and the family.

    She found the whole Facebook incident amusing yet she felt bad for me for the moments of embarrassment and the hurtful “friend” who reported me.  She did like the fact I can laugh about it now.

    After the session I headed back to the car but not before stopping at Kelly’s for dinner.  I had been there a few times for various functions.  I was hungry today so I decided to come here.  I started off with their popcorn shrimp, then I had their Quinnipiac Steak with seasonal steamed vegetables and twice baked potato.   To wash it all down herbal tea.  It was fairly expensive so I may not do that again anytime soon.  I probably could have chosen a lighter menu but I will do differently next time.

    After dinner I really did go back to the car.  It was after 6 so I had about 30 minutes or less to get home before sundown.  I barely made it.  When I got in the kitties were on the stairs wondering where the heck I had gone. 

    They have been running around playing with their toys and now sound like they are settling down again for the night.  Well not quite.  I can tell they have been playing in the spare room as the blanket is bunched up.

    I emailed my Cousin Mandy in Upstate NY today wondering how close her supermarkets are.  She had been recovering from a serious broken leg and depended on friends to pick stuff up for her.  I suggested or asked if her stores provide the home delivery.  The only ones she has close by is IGA and something called PG.  (I am wondering if that’s Price Choppers).  Anyway neither of them deliver.  I think they should now that a number of them do.  However, she is starting to get back into the car so she doesn’t have rely on anyone now. 

    I have some clothes in the washing machine and as soon as I put them in the dryer I am going to bed.  I have to be up early.

Moved Slowly

This is a definite slow day.  This morning did our regular routine for a Saturday.  The kitties have been fed, and have been let down into the cellar,  I cleaned out the litter boxes, and went back to sleep with the TV watching me...get the picture?
Peapod arrive just after 9:30.  I didn’t need to see them as Sky was running up the stairs.  The driver pulled into the neighbor’s (Hockey guy’s) driveway.  I asked her not to do it she explained it wouldn’t be for long and she figured it was mine.  I just shrugged my shoulders and resigned myself to the fact she will do it.   Please for the love of all that’s right next time listen to me.  BEsides there was plenty of room in front of the house!  I got every thing that I ordered and put it all away.  Another list is already started for next week.
The weather sites got it wrong again.  One of them said we were supposed to get rain this morning.  It was supposed to start sometime after 8:30.  Need I have to tell you it never came?  The sun fin…

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…

Sunday Objectives

As i was finishing up feeding the cats this morning I walked into the living room and found what looked like a hairball on the window sill that landed on the floor.  Ick  I don’t know why they have so many hairballs.  There is two more around the house.  Cleaned one up in the office upstairs the other day.
I let them downstairs already.  I actually am not sure if both went or just Sky.  I turned around after finishing cleaning up hairball number 2  and tiger was just sitting there.
My other objectives today would include laundry and church and of course bingo.  I know you are surprised about the church but it's time I go back.
Nothing is wrong but this is proactive.  I feel that when I don’t go to church for a long time my whole center seems off balance and things go wrong.  I want to prevent that from happening.  Considering I am also on the Ladies guild Board now.  I best do it.
I talked with Mama Roberta Friday night for an hour.  She told me about her trip to Colorado and how she …
