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.

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…
