Monday Musings 1/25/2016

Well it was still cold and icy.  i was running late this morning so I defrosted the windshield with the can of de-icer and it fogged up  the windshield.  I was a little annoyed.  Luckily it cleared by the time I got to the highway.  The roads were not bad at all once I could see them!  I think I may have read there is more snow at the end of the week not as big as this past weekend.
Work seemed to have that hectic feel to it.  I didn't have much mail so that allowed me to finish the refund checks from Friday and work on more that was given to me today.  I learned something fairly new with the epic note system.  I think it was something I should have known when I started too.  Sai Leve!

I got a call early in the afternoon letting me know my grocery delivery would be delayed due to weather.  I had called Roberta earlier in the day to ask her to wait for it for me around 4 so I called her back to let her know.  She called back before 8 to see if it got delivered okay.

The guy who came tonight was the epitome of professionalism.  He came a few minutes early at first he thought he gave one of the items I ordered to a previous customer.  I was already to write it down to make a complaint.  Luckily for him he found it but then was going to give me cereal that I didn't order.  IT was mislabeled but turned out okay.  I told him about the last couple of sessions.  I think some would feel that I shouldn't have said anything to him but to the Customer Service department.
I made a folder on the laptop so that I can keep track of the emails but I don't think I can save them to the laptop.  I don't know what I am doing wrong but like Liz's project with the post cards I will keep working on it.  I may have to just do it by copying it to word or something. 

I got a lot of good stuff in the mail today.  My official FMLA papers which I have put in the folder to be filed.  I got my new official Stop and Shop card and stuff.  I also got my paperwork from the new credit union I joined including the debit card.  Sigh that could be dangerous in of it self.  For starters trying to activate is a challenge.  I keep pressing the wrong numbers on the key pad for it.  I guess I can do it tomorrow right?

I was talking to my sister this morning and like I said earlier she was trying to make post cards on the computer and it was a challenging for her but she is working on it still.  Anyway we started talking about Baby Alexandra's party.  I thought it was next week and my sister says its still a long way off.  I was sure it was this coming weekend.  Long story short I was wrong.  When I found out I was wrong I called her back and told her about it.  She got a little silly over it. 

This is good news because I still have time to get a little gift for the baby.  It is my attempt at putting some thought into gifts. At least for the children.  I have to see if I have any other familiar birthdays.  Actually I do but that's for another day.

My brother has been sending some really funny cat lady and pet related videos and articles and some of them are quite funny.  I am not sure who is becoming more of a crazy cat owner him or me.

Livia really did an awesome job on the house today.  She even did the floors.  I don't know if she does everything the same way every two weeks but you could tell she did something different or in addition too.  As always I will try and keep it up. 

Well I actually have to get going the sheets Livia took off my bed need to be washed and I don't want to start leaving piles of clothes by the laundry area.  I don't want to have huge piles of laundry to wash come the weekend either.

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…
