Mid Week Reflection

Having a short work doesn’t mean much considering it seems so long.  I still have a lot to do this week.  They include doctor’s appointments, the scholarship presentation, and more shopping next weekend, and of course several birthdays.

The new window is going to be put in tomorrow morning.  BIL will be here to supervise the job.  He says he trust the guy implicitly.  So I have no worries about that. 

I am wondering when the Guy we had inspect the house a while back hasn’t called maybe I should be calling him?  I guess I can wait until Liz gets home from NJ.

Sis went to NJ this morning via train.  She was already there by Lunchtime (noonish) and was settling in before going to the wake.  She needed to rest and then dress for it.  We spoke via text just about then.  It was just about then we heard from Jim.  He wasn’t sure he would make it to the wake after all because he had to work late.  This doesn’t bode well for his visit here.  I had this nagging feeling he wouldn’t be coming after all.

The Memorial Day holiday came and went quickly.  It rained during the night and by daybreak was just clouds and humid.  Sis and decided to meet at the mall to do some shopping (for me) and we would meet at Macy’s.  I got there on time and a literally a few minutes later Sis arrived.  We spend nearly 2 hours shopping and managed to get some nice stuff for over $200.  Saved about $30.  We decided to get something to drink.  Liz thought we would get something close by but we were on the wrong level and I took her to the food court.  Along the way we stopped at some shops.  One would be closing in a month and the others were very nice.  We finally made it to Johnny Rockets.  We each had French fries and a drink.  Do you know it came to $14???? Now I know why I don’t go to the mall much.

Tonight I am watching the Star Trek Double Feature on FX tonight and then going to bed.  I really  need write letters and get to those mailed.

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…
