Mid Week Reflection

With two days left until Christmas I am already burned out.  I did mass shopping over the weekend and last night.  The gifts included mostly gift cards for most of the adults and coloring books and stickers for the children.  I haven’t even finished all the cards yet either.  The logic I have about this is I can still send the cards until the New Year.  I have really enjoyed the ones I have gotten from friends and family this year. 
As of this writing I am having Christmas morning brunch at my sister’s where her son will be cooking for us that morning.  Later on in the afternoon we will have Christmas dinner at my niece’s house in North Haven.  Among the festivities will be a Yankee swap.
Work will finish for me at 4 pm tomorrow afternoon.  It will resume on January 4 2016 at 8 am.  This will be the first time in the years I have worked at the University that I don’t have to go in at all.  In the past we would have the choice of going in.  This year only certain teams are going in.
I am pleased to say I have been doing additional duties at work when the mail is done.  It is basically recording when refund checks are being mailed out to patients.  I have been doing since Monday.  Today doing mailings for insurance refunds also were done.  We discovered that the prior-authorizations that I was getting and redirecting were taking up a lot of my time.  Now I can learn new things.
I saw my hematologist yesterday and he said things looked good today I get a call asking me to call him tomorrow. He wants me to take more tests soon.  I am wondering if he sees a blood clot forming again.  Well I will have to call him in the morning.  I am not sure what to think.
My Pulmonary Dr. scheduled me for a CT-Scan a week from today in New Haven in the morning.  I have to tell you it’s going to be weird to come into the city and not work.  Although no weirder than when I was on sick leave earlier in the year.
My kitties must have been sensing something was up because they were very cuddly last night while I was sleeping on the couch. Tonight before coming to start my pet sitting job I managed to get Tiger to stay in my arms for five minutes.  I managed to put out more kibble and water for them.
I also got some laundry going again.  Will move it around when I go there tomorrow and get ready for work.
So how is Preston you ask?  Anti-Social.  He is up in the bedroom he usually sleeps in.  He came down to sit in his favorite chair in the parent’s room. I have been told he doesn’t sleep in or on the bed anymore.  Although I suspect that when it’s time for me to go to bed he will be right next to me.  I am trying to get him to go out and do his job but he isn’t cooperating.  I have an hour more to try before I go to bed.
I brought my laptop unsure if I would be able to connect to the internet and luckily I have.  I would prefer to not have to use their equipment unless printing.  I actually don’t know if I will be able to print but I will find out later.

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…
