Saturday Doings

It is a beautiful sunny  day and it will be like that just for today as there is a storm coming in by tomorrow afternoon into Monday morning.  The snow amounts all depend on where you live (as usual) but if it is a really messy either Sunday or Monday I won’t be going anywhere.
I need to do some errands before noon and in the afternoon get ready for the St Patrick’s Dinner at church tonight.  I am going with my sister and brother in law.  It should be fun and I am going to wear  a nice dress.  I was going to wear one particular dress and it looks it won’t be appropriate for now.  The dress I am probably going to be wearing is the same one I wore in October for the christening of my great niece Madison.

I finished the minutes from last night’s 4th District and there were a lot of people there.  People I didn’t expect and those who I was expecting didn’t come.  We have a project to do and many may not appreciate this but we are trying to get those who are newly registered Democrats to come and join the DTC.  It is to get people elected to office.   There are already some volunteers and hopefully we will get many responses.  Letters were sent out to the potential members earlier and these will be follow up calls.  We also got convention dates for state, and local campaigns and I heard where the Democratic National convention is being held and when.    I don’t think I could go as we would have to pay for it (in some states the State Democratic party pays for the delegates).

Work is going well.  The whole mess with the mail thing has been resolved.  All the excessive junk mail we don’t handle (or shouldn’t) went back and will be done by the right person.  If I am understanding that part is out of our hands and we will deal with only the billing part.
We did get an update on a student who had meningitis last autumn and it looks like she has had a relapse of some sort. she has been hospitalized in another state and on the way to recovery.

Yale Men’s Basketball Team made it to the NCAA and apparently is doing well.  It has been decades since they actually made it to the tournament.  They are also joined by UConn.  Now if you know the history of Yale sports you know they are not that great so this is a good thing.
the contract negotiations have been a little quiet but that’s to be expected I guess.  Although I thought I heard some people talking about it and I feel everyone should know what’s going on if anything.  At least some updates.  I guess they don’t feel its that important yet.

There seems to be some community Outreach going on as well as some of my co-workers have spoken at meetings about the fights they had to wage to protect their jobs.  One woman wrote a letter to the Editor to share her experience on thejob this past week and many thought it was good.

The latest step to the straightening up my budget came this week in the new credit card I will be doing the transfer to.  I am waiting to work on it with Liz.  We talked about what the next steps are to paying off the large bills.

I got a call from the check ordering place and they need more information (they don’t like my credit union routing numbers apparently).  That’s why I have to go to the credit union today to get the information again along with getting the paycheck deposited
I heard from Mama R earlier this week.  She wanted to know what the weather was like and so they have cut their trip a little shorter and will be coming home sometime tonight.  They were planning on coming home Sunday.

I finally got the intro to T Barnes in Virginia printed out.  I just ended up turning the computer off and restarting it the whole thing and it printed the one page I was waiting on.
and finally:

This was the view I had from my session with Debra on Thursday.

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…
