This has been a week.


This week has been rather hectic.  I was so tired that I couldn’t do it.  Hopefully the rest of this week and weekend will be better.

First of all I think I was scammed by someone at Peapod.  They were telling me that the delivery fee wasn’t paid for which I knew was.  They started asking questions that I felt uncomfortable with.  They were setting off alarm bells.  I contacted Stop and shop and went there and that particular store doesn’t participate in Peapod.  I called peapod.  I ended up calling Amex to alert them.  The guy was quite helpful and I will be getting a new card.  I still managed to get my food on Wednesday.

The second big thing was Tiger has some parasite in her so it’s been somewhat of a big deal getting them their meds. I was devastated when the vet told me this…its Giardiasis.   Usually found in dogs.   Thursday was a lot better than Wednesday.  .  Both of them have to take it.   I have to bring stool sample in two weeks to see if they are recovered.  The medicine was $42.  I have to be careful around the kitties stuff or I could get sick.  L  Sky gets his shots tomorrow.

This week was a week of Dr. Appointments.  I saw my Lupus Dr. Tuesday and had my Benlysta infusion Wednesday.  Both went well.  My next apt is in April and then I see Dr. S in July.  My infusion is next month. 

I called the cardiologist Friday to see if they have signed the FMLA papers but he hadn’t yet as of that final call.  I hope it does it by next week because I need to have it.

Work is going good.  Still trying to get everything from the recess of my desk.  Making progress there.  I probably won’t be able to help out with checks until the middle of next week.  There were a couple of Powerball pools going around.  I participated in the first one two days ago.  We won a small amount of money and they reinvested it to the next pool.  I can’t do the one for tomorrow night. 

I was talking to Elia the other day and she tells me that negotiations for the next contract have begun and they seem to be going okay so far.    Our next membership meeting is in April.  I am sure we will be getting updates fairly regular when they get into it.

We all got an invitation for an in house retirement party for JoAnne O this week as well.  I knew it was coming but didn’t realize just how soon.   It is at the end of the month.  I don’t think there will be a dinner.  There didn’t seem to be any discussion about it.  Another coworker returned from a medical leave and she looks great. 

The Child Study has a new chairperson.  Dr. A announced that Linda Mayes MD will be heading the department.

The weather has been chilly and cold.  Mostly in the 40’s but no rain or snow yet.   There is a winter storm warning slated for the weekend.  Northern Fairfield and Northern New Haven Counties. My hope is to get all the outside chores done before it hits.

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…
