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.

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…
