Commencement Weekend

Commencement week has finally arrived and will begin Sunday on the Old Campus with Yale College Class Day.  I always wondered what the difference was between the two activities and now that I know it is basically what high schools have.  All the awards and presentations over the years and to celebrate underclassman.  Well maybe not the exact same way high schools do.  Ambassador Sara Power will be the speaker at Class Day.  In the small blurb in the email we got yesterday she is a Yale Graduate and is a member of President Obama’s cabinet.
After the Commencement Alumni Weekend begins a couple of days after that.  I suspect we will see an increased volume of traffic and people that week not so much during the commencement since it will be closer to the city.  OF course if one tends to go out at lunch time they may get to see some activity but collectively we don’t get much around here.
Yesterday was pretty good.  Mama R came around 8 and stayed until about 9.  She brought stuff she wasn’t bringing down to NC.  It was a bit chilly and cloudy at first and it stayed that way until she left.  The babies didn’t come down or out from under the couch until she left.  Well when she comes back up in August they will get used to her.
Liz came sometime after 9 and we worked on the financial stuff.  We also got more stuff out and she took care of the alarms.  We talked about tonight’s ladies night event and her continuing plans to bring Jason and Audrey up here for vacation.
My new door was installed between 10 and 11 and it looks gorgeous.  The guy was efficient and polite and did the job quickly.
The lawn guy came yesterday and the yard looks much better and we discussed the projects he wants to do and the costs.  I am going to check them out with Liz and see what if any of them will do.  The reseeding is definite. 
I got my hair done yesterday and it looks nice.  I got home by 7:30 and I was so ready to go to bed. 
Tonight is the Ladies Night event and I am looking forward to it.  It should be done by 9 and then I am heading to bed.
Tomorrow my peapod order should be here by 7 and then the rest of the day should be fairly quiet. 
I am going to see when Sir James will be arriving for the awards presentation.  It is not until Thursday but at least the house is in good shape or should be when I arrive.

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…
