My Nephews came over to move my old furniture to the front of the house for the bulk pick up next week.  It was one of my nephew’s first visit since my Mother passed and he felt bad about it.    It was great to see them.  Their Mother called me the next day to see if they came and did it. 

This coming week is going to be tough.  My friends Mike and Roberta will be leaving next Thursday for NC.  I get to see Roberta one more time on Monday for our club’s Creative Writing Presentation and possibly again Thursday.

Dr. T’s husband has offered to get the dent he made in my Car out from last Monday but his schedule is rather busy this week.  I have to check my own schedule as well.

Work has been busy for me and having a short day for the dentist last week made it even busier.   I helped with getting some audit together and it came out okay.  Labor/Contract negotiations continue haven’t heard much update there.  The state bill that we called our reps on didn’t get passed and that was bout the taxes for the University.  There is another EPM coming up soon and we have been asked to have our suggestions and ideas ready for the budget.

As you know I have been taking an extra day or two off around the holidays.  Since I am going to be off the first week of July I decided to not do that that for Memorial Day week.  I don’t have any major plans for that holiday yet anyway.

This past week I have been not feeling all that great either.  I am not sure why I am having some trouble with breathing again.  I can’t begin to count how many time I have had to stop and catch my breath.  It just seems more than usual.  I suspect its because I put on more weight.  I haven’t been using the CPAP machine regularly either.  I do have some Dr. Appointments coming up…heart in June.

As I mentioned the Club had a party for Roberta on Monday and we had a great time.  Lots of food and great conversations well after the meeting/dinner had ended.  We have the writing contest reception on Monday and we will be wrapping up our year activities and beginning our summer activities very soon.

The DTC is getting ready for the conventions in the next few weeks for the upcoming campaigns and elections.  The 4th District is next Friday but I won’t be there.  I have a Knight’s of Columbus ladies night dinner. In a couple of weeks is our Annual Awards Night.  Happily it doesn’t conflict with anything else so I am going to be there from the beginning.   Our summer activities will be the conventions, the Oyster fest and hopefully beginning campaigns. 

The weather this week has been great. Warm temperatures, sunshine completely different than the previous week where I was actually considering building that ark.  Not sure what the rest of the week will bring.

The house seems to be in good shape.  Still waiting on contractor guy to call and start the projects he will be working on.  The new window will be here and installed in a few weeks.  The new storm door will be installed on Thursday morning.  I am taking that day off to be here.  I am waiting for the lawn guy to come and begin this month’s landscaping (the basic stuff) he hasn’t let me know how much the other stuff will be.
The kitties have been pretty good.  One or the other will be waiting for me at one or any of the windows of late waiting for me to come home.  At night I have noticed that Tiger stays downstairs again.  Sky comes up and does his routine of staying on the bed until 4.  They do like to sit on the head cushions of the new furniture and

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…
