Thankful Thursday

It’s that time again. 
1.       I am thankful for my family warts and all.
2.      I am thankful for my kitties
3.      I am thankful for my job
4.      I am thankful for the Medical profession that keeps me on the road to good health
5.      I am thankful for my neighbors
6.      I am thankful for my home
7.      I am thankful for my friends
8.      I am thankful for the organizations I belong to.
9.      I am thankful I got the taxes done
10.   I am thankful for the weather.

I talked with Liz yesterday w discussed the results of my tax preparation.  She had asked if I got frustrated and just went on ahead instead of going back to HR Block.   I thought about this after we got off the phone and I found myself getting annoyed because she seems hell bent on pointing out when I get frustrated or angry at things.  It is the same kind of “game” Mom played.  They don’t want to see me react and dismiss whatever I am getting annoyed at as being ‘No big deal’.  They are my emotions and I have a right to them.  (This would be the “warts” part.)

My brother sent a text w/picture of a state of the art cat brush that will make the cats hair shiny and the cats like it (unlike the ones I have the kids bite them) but it costs $50.  I love my cats but that’s a little too pricey. 

Jim will be coming up (or make effort) to be here for the Scholarship Presentation in late May.  I gave him the heads up last week when Chairman Rich mentioned it at the meeting last week.  It will be great to see him.  I can probably look forward to a few “this is what I want YOU to do” conversations while he is here.

Work is going okay.  Work load varies from day to day.  Somedays it feels like a lot and some days I am thinking there isn’t a lot to do.  We have had some returning co-workers and some who have suffered a loss of a parent.  The labor Contract Negotiations continue.  The first item is Job Security.  One department is being threatened with outsourcing their jobs.

I am planning on taking some time off at the end of June beginning of July.  I always worry it can be a bad time.   Its FY end as well as Month end for AR and it will be (supposedly) the time we will be moving to our new and undisclosed location.

This weekend will be a weekend with friends.  On Saturday I will be meeting Siduri in New Haven and we will be going to exploring the city we work in and have lunch too.  Siduri is also a fellow University employee and it will be fun to getting to know her. 

Sunday is my friends Debbie and Stan’s Wedding and it will be enjoyable.  I will be meeting their other friends that we don’t get to see at all.  I suspect or at least I hope I will get to see our Mexican Train Game friends at this time. 

The Woman’s club has been keeping me a little busy we had our fashion show last week and except for a couple of things it went exceedingly well.  The issues I have are with the girls who don’t follow through on their commitments.   I am probably the only one who has this issue.  The Creative Writing contest deadline is fast approaching and it will culminate with a reception at City Hall in Mid-May.  We have elections coming up and a number of other activities before finishing up for the year.  We don’t usually have meetings during the summer but we do have other activities such as carwashes, picnics, and parties.

We will be saying good bye to our Charter Member and Treasurer Roberta this year as she and her husband will be moving to North Carolina next month.  Members of the woman’s club will be getting together for one final dinner next week. 

Well that’s it for now..

Wow it got cold fast

It dropped at least 10 degrees in a day or so.Yesterday I was being blown down the street while walking and today I have bundled up more.I heard we may get snow flurries tonight.Just as we are expecting the snow flurries the CPTV is rebroadcasting the documentary Blizzard of 78.
I had a good session with Debra.Talked about the events of the last couple of weeks and she is confident that I will be smart about the “Meetups”.She also recommended to not discuss it with Sis.We will meet next week regular time.
I did talk to Liz via text after I had received an invitation to my Niece’s baby sprinkle.(That’s what they are calling it cute huh?)Tentative plans are to go together.It will be later on this month.A week after Cheryl’s party.I am thinking it’s time for another outfit.I need to make time to get a gift for both parties.
I can say with relief that my traffic ticket I got last week was paid in full.They got it within the last couple of days.Bills are paid.
Work was fine we had a staff meet…

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 …
