This week is going by

I haven’t had much of chance to write at all this week even though I tried a couple of times unsuccessfully.  It has been one thing or another like not enough time, the cats, social activities, and exhaustion.

The mail meeting I mentioned last week went well and I have made changes to the distribution.  There have been some changes but none that will be bad.  I have eluded that if I continue to keep up with things I may be able to help out with other things (such as scanning as originally intended).  Of course the minute I said that I get an influx of EOB’s that seemed to have grown.  I am not really worried.  I was able to contribute to a team gift for my Supervisor the other day.  I am not sure what we are getting but it should be very nice.  There was another collection for a co-worker who has been out again and is struggling.  Friday is our annual Holiday Luncheon and I am looking forward to it.

I had dinner with Dave Monday night at Michael Anthony’s here in Milford.  It was our first time and very nice.  We talked about our families, my health, work, friends, cars (he has a new mini coop) and of course his annual Open House for New Year’s Day.  He just sent out a “Save the Date” text to me yesterday.  There were a few times I got annoyed with him only because we were going over stuff we discussed before (like the MS/Lupus) but once he said “I can’t remember” it wasn’t worth it.

I have had some issues with the breathing this week that usually makes me tired by the end of the day (another reason why holiday stuff hasn’t gotten done) I am making notes for Dr. M for January’s appointment but that has a couple of people concerned as my face got red a couple of times this week.  Sometimes I get the gasps of air and it sometimes hurts.

I had a wonderful visit with Roberta and her Daughter Miriam on Tuesday.  We spent nearly two hours discussing our lives, volunteering, health, all kinds of things it was just so much fun.  We will be volunteering on Saturday when the woman’s club/girls club will be delivering gifts to the Birmingham Healthcare residents.

I haven’t done a lot of shopping for the holidays this week but I am hoping part of the weekend I can do it.  I have contacted a couple of family members to get ideas and addresses (specifically Kris’s).  I have gotten a number of beautiful cards from family and friends this week.  I actually tried to get some labels printed up and it took me so long because there were some addresses I need to find and I tried to update all my address books.    I will probably get more done this weekend and beginning of next week.

Sadly one of my pen pals lost her battle with cancer earlier this week.  Donna T W died early Tuesday morning surrounded by her family.  There are memorials on many of the pen pal groups.  I am feeling slightly guilty because I haven’t written her since the summer. Her funeral is tomorrow in her town in KY.

I received some wonderful family news tonight.  First Jim is going to be doing an event in NY at Artists without Walls on December 22, 2015 in NY.  He told me about it a while back and I am just so excited for him.  I share it on my timeline.  I don’t know if I can go as it is part of the week I am housesitting.

During the conversation Liz announced her son Chris just got engaged to his girlfriend Jennifer.  Her friend Kari works with me so I don't know if she knows or not but I will keep it quiet until she says something.

It’s been raining all day and now I am going to bury myself under the warm blankets along with the kitties and go to bed.

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…
