Mid Week Reflection

Where is this week going?  Man I have been going nonstop it seems.  I have been too tired to write in the last couple of days.  By the time I get home I do a few things and then sit and watch TV and then get into bed.

The School year has come to a close in town and the Scholarship presentation my brother and did last week was quick and easy.  It was nice to have my brother here for the short visit especially since he was kind enough to dispatch a dead mouse the fur babies brought into my bedroom before leaving for home.

Also the young man who brutally murdered his classmate Maren Sanchez was sentenced to life in Prison this week.  The family is also taking legal action against the Board of Ed for not interceding earlier as they had warned the administration early on that the young man was dangerous.

Work is status quo there have been some interesting news regarding our move to a new location.  It is more of a reality now then say last month.  IT will be two doors down from our current location.  Of course there has to be a huge retro fit and it will take a while.  I was betting we would be in there by Recess 2016 others are not so sure.

Negotiations continue and there has been some progress with that.  I out and out asked one of the stewards and they said they are hoping to get the most recent layoffs rescinded and they seem hopeful.  The other option is to get volunteers that are close to retirement to volunteer to go into the pool and opt out.  As always not sure if I explained it (or understood it) well or not.

This week our co-worker lost her niece and the services are in the next couple of days.  We are making a contribution to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Department in the young girl’s name.  By the time this gets posted I would have been to the wake but not the funeral.

The annual Arts and Ideas festival begins on Friday.  My hope during the next two weeks that I get to see some of it.  Tina* and I were talking about it earlier this week.  I have limited time during the day and some nights it just isn’t feasible.  I also still have to prepare for NC at the end of the month.

I was able to see my great niece and great nephew from SC this week a few times.  I had breakfast with them on Saturday when their Uncle and their father cooked for the immediate family and we had a blast.  My Nephew is a great cook I think.  Of course we also had a birthday cookout on Monday or Tuesday (can’t remember now) for Sis.

I love my new window, and new door and the new landscaper.  It had been a rocky start at first for the very latter but he seems to be making up for it.  I am not sure when he will finish the “big landscaping project” but I hope soon. 

I have contacted Lawyer Bob regarding the inside projects that we had planned and for the contractor to start but I haven’t heard anything yet.

I had some excitement at the Cardiologist last week but he was still concerned about the weight (no kidding!) and the BP.  I have had some aches and pains and just taking the meds for it.  I have the infusion in two weeks.  Not too many Dr Appointments this week but a few next week.

This weekend looks to be quiet again.  This may allow me to catch up on the pen pal letters that I have been procrastinating on lately.  I did finally print up and answered some questions for DM in Bakersfield.  Now I know I have a few more replies for others.

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…
