The Train Experiment on Friday

This morning was the commuting by train experiment and I have come to the conclusion it isn’t a viable solution for me.  The parking is $6 a day (free after 5 pm and weekends) and the train at 7:39 is the first one.   It gets me into town at 7:49 and then the shuttle gets me to the office by 8:10.

Now if I drive to Quigley Stadium just in West Haven it's free all of it but I would have to walk from Cedar Street to the office.  There are days I know I won’t be able to walk the length of it.  Like tonight.  My legs and hands are hurting.

The amount of walking I did probably didn't help. I am looking into venues but this isn't it. As it some shuttles won't take if you are not hospital employee.

It started to rain as I left the station.  It came down hard when I reached cracker barrel.  I was glad to be going inside but stressed out at the same time.  i wasn’t feeling great by then.  I was achy and stiff and I realized I left my idea with one of my credit cards at the office.  I still had means to pay but it was frustrating.  By then I knew I was tired and wanted to go home but I had my dinner first.

I was there an hour but it was relaxing watching the rain come down and empathizing with those stuck in the heavy traffic going north.  I had a roast beef sandwich with au jus and fries and their pumpkin dessert with Ginger snap.  It's not on the website so I can’t remember exactly what it was called but let's say I wouldn’t mind having it again.

When I got home the kitties were waiting for me.  They were not cuddly until they were ready.  THey played for a good long time.  While they played I called LIz.  I called when I got off the train but she was sleeping.

We spent a good twenty minutes talking.  She really needed someone to talk to because she and Nelson have been hit with another health scare for Nelson.  It seems he may have Parkinson's Disease.  This may have been the culprit to his fall last May.  They are going through a lot of emotions, worries, and fears (the same as worries I am sure), he hasn’t told many people yet.  I hope I was a good listener and I hope that I can be there for them.  I won’t hover and stuff that i usually do but let him tell me if he wants and offer to be there for them.  I am scared for them. 

I am so tired that I think I am going to bed.  I know its early but today was long and semi stressful.

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…
