   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..

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…
