I heard from Jim the other day says he wasn’t feeling well.  I checked in with him the next day and he was feeling better.  He must not have been feeling well during the weekend after I talked with him.  He has been visiting a dying friend in the hospital for several weeks (when he didn’t come to visit me) and I think it has taken a toll.  I just hope he can make the trip up for the scholarship presentation at the end of the month.

My sister has been great.  She and Nelson ordered the new window for the window at the bottom of the stairs on the side of the house and it will be here in a few weeks.  We also discussed the upcoming visit from the Lawyer and contractor.  She acknowledged it will be a little invasive because no one wants to be judged or whatever.  He isn’t going to tell me how to live.  We will also go over the “books” she feels I am doing fine but just to keep it in order.  I just to write revise the ledger as I didn’t write a few things down in the last couple of days.

I am thankful that my Neighbor Don came over to let me know I left the headlights on again last night.  If he hadn’t I wouldn’t have gotten to work on time and I would have to shell out some $$ to get it started.  The rest of the neighbors are doing well.  I have a new neighbor though I haven’t seen him yet but some of you might know him if you follow the Montreal farm team or even the Maple Leafs.  He is from Milford too.

As you may or may not know we had HR meeting yesterday and it was basically about the budget cuts.  It really didn’t answer any or many questions and it made many even angrier and worried.  Some felt it was an intimidation tactic.  There is a Union Rally this afternoon and it is supposed to be a big one.  If the weather is cooperating it will be outside if not it will be inside. 

Sadly my co-worker Tina B lost her father last night.  There is a collection going around and I will have made a contribution by the time you read this.  For some reason my reaction was unexpected I got upset about it.



My house in my eyes looks great even though there are things that are in need of repairing or replacing.  On Saturday Mom’s estate lawyer is coming by with a “contractor” and just giving it a look over.  When I told Jim about it over the weekend his reaction was less than favorable.  But if there are things the estate can pay for then I am for it.  I will not allow him to dictate to me but I am willing to accept suggestions.

The woman’s club is going to be sort of busy in the next few weeks.  We are hoping to have a farewell picnic/party for our friend and fellow club mate who is moving to North Carolina in over two weeks.  We have the annual Creative Writing Contest reception next week and many other year end activities.

Right now I need to get ready for work….

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…
