   Today is the first day of my long weekend and I had a fairly busy morning.  I got up early fed the cats and then got ready for running errands including getting the tire fixed, and doing budgetary stuff with Liz.

I left here around 8 and ran to the Credit union to 1)get some info on the account for the check ordering and 2) make sure I wasn't going crazy about the deposits (the direct deposit started this week) and to take money out for the week.

The next stop was to the Tire place and some how I managed to get there on time.  Route 1 in this area of the state can be challenging to say the least.  I got in gave them info and Armand looked at the tire and had me drive around back and drop the car off.  By then Liz had arrived. She offered breakfast at Micky D's and we headed back to her house.  It was about two and half hours later when the car was ready (I called after we finished the budgetary stuff).  We wnet and picked it up and it only cost $4 and change (that was for the balancing).  As appossed to the original $14 they had quoted and the $20 that Firestone said it would cost.

When I got to my sister's we ate first and chatted and then got started.  We started on the bills and set up next month's bills to be paid so far.  Then we worked on the credit card and transferred the balance still left on the Chase (we found out why they don't accept one account to another.).  We are waiting for acceptence.  We also ordered the checks with the additional info they needed.  Now I am all set until the next round of bills come in.  We were done by noon and got the car.

Since I have been home folding clothes, and freaking out the cats because I am not usually home during a thursday.  I realize they don't know what day it is but they wre damn cuddly today.  i also have some laundry going too.

My ankle is giving me a problem but I have taken some tylenol and it is beginning to feel better.  It feels like I either sprained it or broke it. I know its what ever I had this morning that set it off (or its the weather change).  Taking the meds semi religiously.  I may have to get more plaquenil.

I have to get a grocery list started and perhaps do it before the weekend starts.  I am pretty sure it will be nuts in the next two days in time for easter.  At least its a small list.

I got an email from Dr. T.  She wants to take Mama R out for dinner before she leaves in May.  I have to find dates that are good.  Between the conventions and regular stuff I am not sure when is a good time.  It is definitely becoming more of a reality.  I haven't heard from Mama R in the last few days either.

The weather has been changing today it was sunny and beautiful by the time I left Liz's it had gotten colder and cloudier.  By the end of the day the sun was fighting to come out and it did for just a little while.

The rest of today is going to be relaxing...Tomorrow I tackle the taxes..

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…
