Mid-Week Reflection

It has been a pretty busy week so far and will continue to be so for the rest of it. 
The end of last week brought a DTC annual event and a weekend full of activity.

Saturday I spent the day with a fellow University employee in New Haven and explored places I don’t normally get to see and places I don’t usually see.  The conversations were enlightening and I enjoyed myself.  I was tired by the time I got home.  The weather held nicely as well.
Sunday was my friend’s wedding and it was lovely.  It was my first time in a Synagogue.  I can’t say it was my first Jewish wedding as my friend Roberta’s Daughter got married and it was mixed wedding.  Again the weather was lovely.

Work is okay.  Been busy but things are starting to heat up with the labor negotiations.  We got word from the Administration the Med School has budget cuts throughout the school and they can affect many things.  The union is countering our campaign as part of the negotiations.  There is an area lunch meeting tomorrow.  I don’t know if I should be overly concerned or not.  It could be just a tactic in the contract negotiations. 

I have to take some time off from work tomorrow for a wake.  The wake itself starts at 4 and it’s for a dear friend’s father.  I wanted to go early so I can be ready for my friend Roberta’s dinner.  I also put in for my vacation for early July.

Tonight is the General Meeting for the Woman’s Club and Girls Club.  We will be discussing lots of things such as the budget, elections, and past activities.  I talked with Dr. T yesterday about issues that concerned me about the members of the girls club.   The girls do not always follow through on commitments they make and it is a real problem with me.

Thursday we are having a farewell dinner for Mama Roberta at Plan B restaurant in town.  It will be bittersweet because we don’t always get together outside of the club without the girls.  We have had a few adult only parties.  Sadly it may be the last.  As I said to Papa Mike I believe the club will fold due to lack of membership.

I am also going to start preparations for the 4th District meeting next week.  I have already asked some people to bring things because we are expecting a large number of members this time.  Earlier this month we had a outreach project and it worked and we sent on and received responses to come to the meeting.  We have a few things coming up over the next few weeks involving the election.  We have conventions to sign up for (I am a delegate runner up).

However this weekend I am hoping to just concentrate on overdue letters to friends. I am also going to do some volunteering.

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…

Jeans Day

This is becoming my favorite day of the week.  It's the day we can wear jeans to work.  It is a day to be comfortable but still be functionable and get work done.  Today it may have been a little too comfortable as I found my falling asleep a number of times at my desk.  Today was a little bit of mail and the rest of the day was scanning.  It went pretty well with a few glitches.  I have put in my time for my appointments for July.  I have taken all of Wednesday off and that will be explained in a moment.
I went to the food court outside the hospital for lunch and got some chinese food.  It was pretty good.  THere was a concert in the courtyard next door.  It was great listening to the music.  It has been a long time since I saw those there.
I have to admit I am still not feeling completely well.  I had my dental checkup yesterday and it looks like i am having a root canal done next wednesday..  It hadn’t been hurting for the last few days until they began to poke and prod it.  Hone…
