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....

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…
