I Love Thursdays!  It reminds me that I need to take stock of my life.  It’s been pretty good week this week if not busy.

My sister made arrangements for an exterminator to come today and get rid of the ugly critters (no not my babies) and I am hoping I won’t have to deal with them for the rest of the season.  I saw one last night by the back door and that’s it.   She is also arranging for friends to pick up Mama Roberta’s furniture now it may be Friday.  Fingers crossed for success.

My brother J will be coming up for the weekend for a visit.  He has friends he wants to catch up with that live in town and he wants to get together with us for lunch on Saturday.  He also is coming up for the Senior Awards programs later in May and June so that we can present the DTC Scholarship in my Mother’s name.  He did whine about the length of time each one is.  I may have had to promise him we could leave after our presentation but it all depends on where we are in the program.

My SIL E came by last week for a brief visit.  She had been in the Philippines until recently and was catching up with family and had a seminar later this month to attend.  She dropped a huge bombshell on me though.  She is planning on retiring to her home land.  She is planning on growing Cocoa and building a resort.  She is not happy with her life here (she says she is bored with life here).  My only objection is if you had all this money to build a resort how come she didn’t use it to pay for the bills she accrued over the years with my brother or even enough to have helped out with Mom’s funeral?  My other fear is we will never see her again.  As it is we haven’t been keeping in touch much since Bob or Mom died.

I am awaiting to get Roberta’s furniture and she just alerted me about the airfare to NC in July.  I will get it tomorrow.  If still available.  We had a great time last week when we went to dinner with our fellow club members.  They are getting ready for a two week vacation out west before they move.  It’s going to be tough now.

I am so relieved that I was able to get my neighbors to watch the kitties while I am down in North Carolina.  They will be able to come in the morning and feed the kitties and take care of the litterbox.  They can also look after the house if something comes up.

Work is going on like clockwork.  The contract negotiations are continuing throughout the campus.  We had an FYI meeting with the Admin in the Med School keeping us posted on the recent and current budget cuts made at the state level and how they affect us.  Lots of questions but not a lot of answers.  We have a rally the first week of May. 

I went to the pulmonary specialist and he says I am doing well.  He will see me again in August.  I see the Lupus Doctor this morning.  I am not sure what to expect for that one.  She does have my parking tag application (I hope).  I see Debra this afternoon.  I didn’t get to see her last week.

Tonight I have the DTC 4th District meeting at home.  I am going to have to stop and get a few things and some of my other members will be bringing something as well.  We will be talking about the award dinner we have plus the conventions coming up this summer.

The weather has been beautiful for the last several days.  Sometimes it has been chilly and others not so much.  It has been forecast to have showers.  Not until the weekend I believe.

As I mentioned earlier I am having the exterminator come and spray the house.  Now I can start concentrating on things I need for the house such as a few new windows, and a new storm door.  I am thinking of a security system as well.

In the mean time I am going to get ready for bed have lots to get ready for…

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…
