Another Saturday

I was up early again thanks to Sky but I hopped back in until 6 and then did our rituals.  I put the sprinkler on for an hour.  I watched the Sunday morning edition of the L& O marathon.  I put some laundry in (trying to make sure there is nothing around) and chatted with neighbor Sean for a bit.  Did some other things including chatting with a cousin-in-law.

I called Jim just before getting ready for Bingo and it seems he was driving some people around the town.  I told him I would call him later on as I didn’t want to bore the passengers.  I was relieved to know he was good.  I tried a couple more times and the second time he didn’t pick and the final one he was driving again.  We talked about the status of the Dog Mauling and my trip.

Did anyone see the video on CNN about the tallest building where you can slide from the 70th floor to the 69th Floor?  My Cousin Joan posted it to FB this weekend and my reply was No way no how would you get me on that thing!  I don’t care how safe it is.  One reason I still have bad case of heights.  Its not as bad as it was but every time I think of that it make my whole body shake.

The drive to bingo was slightly annoying.  Mind you it was after 1:30 and southbound traffic on I-95 was taking forever! I don’t know how far back it went but it was really silly.  I could understand if it was late in the afternoon and it was weekend traffic going home but at 1:30 in the afternoon?  Luckily I made it in good time and started on time. 

Bingo went well.  We had 15 residents playing and almost everyone won.  After bingo fresh fruit was served.  I didn’t get to see Natalie again as she was doing a Mission of mercy.  She was giving a terminal resident one last Sunday afternoon drive at the request of her family.  I think it’s very sweet and sad.

After bingo I headed to Wal*mart and spent about an hour there and about $150 dollars on stuff. Three blouses (two are tees), 1 set of Scrubs (for bed), lingerie, socks, two pairs of denim jeans.  It took about an hour and then I headed to IHOP for dinner. 

It was fairly quiet there and not more than five minutes there I ran into a co-worker and her family.  I nearly tripped and stepped on her husband Jeff’s foot.  Nice way to meet for the first time.  I heard so many wonderful things from Mish about him.  After we chatted about the “dog mauling” I went to my table and began to look the menu over.  I chose The Pineapple Upside down pancakes. It was a large stack as I didn’t want the combo plate.  I did get a side order of hash browns and Tea.  I am not sure what time it was when I got ready to leave but I noticed I left at the same time as Mish and her family.

When I got home Tiger was looking out the window and then took off for parts unknown.  I tried to spend time with her but she ambled off somewhere.  Sky was still upstairs and so I watched TV.  I have a feeling I gave tiger too many treats.  There was pile of goo on the study floor.   Later on Sky decided he wanted to play with my feet by clawing them and biting them.  I had to giggle because it in some ways it hurt and others it tickled.

While I was upstairs I tried the clothes on that I bought and then put them in a pile to put in the suitcase later.  I will print out all the Southwest emails I have gotten over the last few weeks the most recent one today reminding me to check in when I am supposed to and now I am thinking I may have to call the livery service and have them pick me up earlier than 4:30.   My biggest fear is I will miss the check in time via online.

Did I mention it was beautiful today?  Sunny and pleasant and at times breezy.  It was in the 80’s with the fluffiest clouds.  It’s just about mid 70’s now.  I put the ceiling fan on and it’s lovely.  It’s going to be nice tomorrow but raining and thundering midweek but nice for my flight out (fist pump).

Well, I am going to hit the sack.  Livia is coming tomorrow to clean the house so I have to get up and prepare for that.

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…
