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  I out and out asked one of the stewards and they said they are hoping to get the most recent layoffs rescinded and they seem hopeful.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.

World Record

I think I broke the World record for shopping.I managed to spend 45 minutes and not break the budget for grocery shopping.I was home before 8 am.I started doing some cooking the chicken breasts should be done in another ten minutes.I have more to make.I am going to make sauce now.
I don’t think I have ever been in a store so early in the morning.There wasn’t a lot of people there at 7:15 in the morning on a Sunday.I may do that again some time.I did get a few things not on the list but still needed.Of course there was one thing I didn’t get.
Well now the chicken strips are done I tried a couple and wrapped the rest for snacks later.I have sauce going and later on I might do the roast again the right way this time.I finally decided to bring up a tray table from downstairs to put the laptop on it made it much easier on the counters.I was certain I would have to say up late but by 5:30 I was making pizza with some of the sauce and cooling the rest in a container with plastic bag.
The rain b…

Another Explosion

There was an explosion at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York this morning.  An alert popped up in my email and began the details.  They are uncertain of the origin of the explosion but evacuated a few of the subway lines.  IT's about 20 minutes East of where DIane and Rogier live (if I know my directions).    I sometimes wonder if she could feel it or see it from where she was.  I guess it’s like here.  YOu can’t always hear noises on the other side of town.
ON the upside Today is Diane and Rogier's Third Wedding anniversary!  Did I send them anything? Nope.  Do I ever? Nope.  Unless you count  FB messages!
Work is fine.  Spent the morning scanning and the rest of the day doing mail.  The couriers redeemed themselves in my eyes.  They got here by 12.  Had the normal volume of mail.  I finished by 3.  The last hour consisted of readdress mail.
Today must have been bring in food day because there is chili in one aisle and lasagna in another and I turned down both!  Only be…

Snowy Monday

I had hoped to have  missed the snow they were predicting overnight and into today.  Unfortunately it started flurrying when I hit the city. Great. I didn’t bring my boots today.  There are snow showers predicted for Milford this morning and apparently for the city. Lovely we are getting another Nor’easter come Wednesday.  

There is one thing that I forgot to mention.  A strip mall had some damage during the storm friday and I just found out that it was the strip mall by my house.  I didn’t even make the connection until a coworker said something to me this morning.  I hadn’t recognized the names or the background pictures. I thought it was in another part of town.

Work went well.  The healthlogic came early so I jumped on that as soon as I could.  It was pretty quiet for Monday. Could have been the weather or could have been weekend activities.  I had fried proscuitto, baby arugula, melted provolone, baby arugula & tomato with roasted garlic aioli on toasted sourdough for lun…
