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.

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…
