Opened the windows again

It is after 11 am in already and its 60 degrees out already.  Its still a bit cool or chilly but I am under the blankets.  I will keep them opened for a few more hours or until the rain moves in as I heard we are supposed to get it by tomorrow morning.

Yesterday was pretty busy and of course fun with some bitter sweetness to it.  I managed to get to the banks and do the business at hand at a decent time and then I relaxed for a bit before going to Mama’s and Dad’s for the Mexican Train.

Everyone started arriving after I did and we did have a late start because one couple lost track of time.  We ordered our lunch from Alpha’s over on Naugatuck Avenue through the delivery service in town.  As usual the restaurant had gotten something wrong and put a damper on the food enjoyment.  It was fairly expensive (my lucy burger came to $14).  It wasn’t that good two flat hamburgers pressed together with stuff in the middle. The price included Onion rings, and fries.  I got the fries for Papa and the onion rings for me.  They were not crunchy. Then again my tooth was hurting so that may have been a good thing.  I did get to take home the pizza they made wrong for  Stan and Debbie.

The reason it was a bitter sweet evening is this will in all likelihood be the last Mexican train for us.  Between the holidays, Debbie and Stan’s wedding and eventual move to Florida, and Mama and Papa’s eventual move to North Carolina in may and every one else’s schedule it will be hard.  I know that Mama had said perhaps we may have one before leaving but I will be pleasantly surprised if that happened.

I couldn’t help crying as I said goodbye to Roberta and of course I cried on the way home and while I was watching TV last night.  I think the cats were wondering what was wrong.  It stopped after a while.

There was a scary afternoon yesterday.  Many people across the state (I am guessing) got their very first amber alert via text and email.  I had gotten one and posted about it on Facebook I had gotten a few replies from neighbor Kim and some classmates and schoolteachers I knew.  I later found out from Siduri that she also got one.  From the discussions I had we didn’t sign up for it but its a good thing.  Thankfully the boy was returned to his mother after the kids father  took him from the kids home in Trumbull.

Even though I had a lot of caffeine (between soda and coffee) I still went to bed early trying to get prepared for the time change.  I don’t think I went to sleep until well after midnight.  I did stay in bed until 6 thanks to Sky clock.  After I fed the cats I went back to bed on the couch for a couple of hours and in about 15 minutes will be getting ready for bingo.

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…
