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....

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…
