Glad today is done

Today was the Valentines Delivery at the Birmingham Nursing Facility.  Roberta and I got there just about 10:30 and we found Dr. T and Yung starting to set up and wait for the othres to arrive. Only one girl did but the others never did.  This is beyond annoying.  Apparently who ever was supposed to drop them off woke up late.  Did it occur to these delightful young and really irresponsible girls to wake them up?  Dr. T said if she had known she would have gone and picked them up!!!.  Dr. T was so pleased that 9 girls out of say 20 showed up to the one we did at WRHC here in town.  Big Freaking deal.  I am so flipping tired of these girls promising they are going to do something and then they don't.  I have asked them to come help me at bingo every Sunday.   They never show up!!! They make these promises and say call me. NO!  IF you are that interested check the club directory or even past newsletters and freaking look it up.

This afternoon's Bingo session was very frustrating.  The Natives were mroe that just a little restless.  i had implented rules such as the first eprson to call the bingo would get the number.  i Have been doing this for two weeks now.  I said it wehn we started the bingo session and I said it more than once.  One woman who continually calls bingo after I have cleared my board and also calls numbers I didn't call objected to htis...she was really rude to me.  Bob told me not to worry because he felt I was right in implenting this rule (very often we run out of money if several people get bingo in one game).  Then while I was talking with the receptionist two residents yelled "help".  They didn't need really they wanted to get back to their room.  Bob the Rec Therapist was already taking someone else.  We told them both they couldn't do it unless they really needed help.  I was so frustrated I threatened to take another break from this crap.

The two bright spots of the day were having lunch with Mama Roberta nd Papa Michael at Pop's Diner before having to go to bingo.  We each had somethign different.  I had AVacado Eggs benedict with hashbrown patties and coffee.  I don't remember what they had.  Of course that isn't important but what we discussed was much more fun.  THe future, our friends, and how they are doing with getting the house ready for the sellers market.

The second bright spot was spending about an hour with Liz.  She was hoping to wax her floor but didn't have enough of the wax to do it.  Anyway we talked about a lot of things (history mostly) and how we deal with things in general.  I was there for nearly an hour or so.  While there we notice the sky getting grey or darker...I was pretty glad to be getting home.  It isn't doing anything now-yet.

Since i have been home I have some laundry going, had dinner straighten the kitchen and now channel surfing.  Anything to avoid putting the superbowl on.  Sorry sports fans.  I have decided to sleep down here so I wouldn't forget the laundry.  I probably don't have a really good reason for this but it works for me.

I heard from Jim this afternoon.  I had called him and sent messages to him during the weekend and at first i hadn't heard from him and I was uneasy.  When he did sent me message he was in Denver.  He left last night so he could visit Kris and spent a couple of days and do some skiing.

Well I have to check the dryer so I will say good night....

Moved Slowly

This is a definite slow day.  This morning did our regular routine for a Saturday.  The kitties have been fed, and have been let down into the cellar,  I cleaned out the litter boxes, and went back to sleep with the TV watching me...get the picture?
Peapod arrive just after 9:30.  I didn’t need to see them as Sky was running up the stairs.  The driver pulled into the neighbor’s (Hockey guy’s) driveway.  I asked her not to do it she explained it wouldn’t be for long and she figured it was mine.  I just shrugged my shoulders and resigned myself to the fact she will do it.   Please for the love of all that’s right next time listen to me.  BEsides there was plenty of room in front of the house!  I got every thing that I ordered and put it all away.  Another list is already started for next week.
The weather sites got it wrong again.  One of them said we were supposed to get rain this morning.  It was supposed to start sometime after 8:30.  Need I have to tell you it never came?  The sun fin…

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…

Sunday Objectives

As i was finishing up feeding the cats this morning I walked into the living room and found what looked like a hairball on the window sill that landed on the floor.  Ick  I don’t know why they have so many hairballs.  There is two more around the house.  Cleaned one up in the office upstairs the other day.
I let them downstairs already.  I actually am not sure if both went or just Sky.  I turned around after finishing cleaning up hairball number 2  and tiger was just sitting there.
My other objectives today would include laundry and church and of course bingo.  I know you are surprised about the church but it's time I go back.
Nothing is wrong but this is proactive.  I feel that when I don’t go to church for a long time my whole center seems off balance and things go wrong.  I want to prevent that from happening.  Considering I am also on the Ladies guild Board now.  I best do it.
I talked with Mama Roberta Friday night for an hour.  She told me about her trip to Colorado and how she …
