Mid Week Reflection

Another beautiful Day in the Nutmeg State.  It is supposed to stay this way for the next several days.  I may even try and get out and attempt some walking.

Yesterday was the employee appreciation event on the main/old campus and there was some question as to whether or not we can go for longer than our lunch time.  Some believed that we should be able to go on the University’s time and not use our time.  I went for an hour and half.  I got back by 1.  The food was pretty good but more importantly I got to see people I haven’t seen in a long while.  I was hoping to get to see Tina but didn’t.  The rest of the day passed without incident.  I wasn’t able to get everything done but what I didn’t finish yesterday I did today.

My session with Courtney was   pretty good.  According to her scale I only gained .4 lbs.  We talked about having proteins and which kind to have instead of just cheese since it seems to be a weakness for me.  She suggested that instead of having the 4 lamb chops to cut to two and freeze the others and have the vegetable and/ or salad.  Well I didn’t have the salad but I had everything else and have the other two ready to be reheated tonight.  I did add some butter to the vegetables.

After dinner I headed over to Liz’s to spend time with her and the kids.  They are leaving on Friday to head back to Fort Mills SC.  Last night was Jason’s turn to have grandma to himself while his sister spent time with my nephew and his girlfriend.  They spent the day at Indian Well State Park.  I was able to enjoy watching them have a water balloon fight with Liz as well.

On the way home I stopped at Shop-Rite and got some ice cream.  I want to prove to myself and the world I can have it but in moderation.  It’s not starting off well I must tell you. I will keep trying.

The kitties are in the dog house today.  Between yesterday and today they seemed to have peed (I witnessed that one) and pooped outside the box.  I can’t believe Tiger would do this …I saw her squatting as I went to pick up the mattress cover to soak it.  She was peeing on it.  One of them missed the box entirely this morning.   Clearly these things (the boxes) need a good cleaning.

I have to clean up the mess I left this morning myself.  I was trying to get the soaking cover and the container to the washing machine but I discovered it was dripping water all over the floor and I nearly dropped it at the opening of the machine onto the floor.  I covered up the stuff that was on the floor so the kitties wouldn’t get to it.  I will have to finish it when I get home tonight. 

I ordered some coffee for Work and some tea for home and it should be here sometime early next week.  It was about $50.  It should hold me until my trip in just under 2 weeks.

I made reservations for a private car to take me to Bradley airport on the day I leave for my trip.  They will be picking me up at 4:30.  There will be someone waiting for me upon my return trip a week later.    

Well I have some stuff to do so I will chat with you later…

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…
