Quick updates

Work is going okay.  We received announcement that in July new CFO will be starting.  It has been said by many he will be a hands on type of employer.  He will be coming from UT Medical Center in Dallas.  Morning activities kind of slow until lunchtime when the work comes in.  Have been helping out with sending out refund checks.  

The Arts and Ideas festival continues for another four days and as usual I haven’t gotten there.  As usual by the time I get home I don’t usually want to come back into the city.  Traffic has been bearish.  On the weekends I haven’t felt like going back in because I want to relax and now will have to start preparing for my NC trip.

I haven’t done much with the woman’s club but called Dr. T today but she wasn’t home.  We haven’t had any more interaction with the state org regarding the dues situation but I will find out soon if we are or what the next step is.  I will probably also find out what other activities we have going for the club for the summer.  I got an email regarding the local Library.  They had gotten new books and the reason it is of interest is it is name after a former member and friend Ellen.

The DTC in general is gearing up for the Democratic Convention this summer.  The candidates for local offices (state and federal) are probably going to have meet and greets this summer.  I know I missed my friend Gayle’s but I just couldn’t do it.  The 4th District is coming to my house this Thursday.  Happily Sharon will bring a snack.  I don’t know what else to bring.  My hope is SOMEONE else will think to bring something.  We got about 12 responses from people and about 6 are coming five are not.  I have no idea if anyone else answered or are just going to show up.  Which is usually the case.  We probably will have a post awards dinner report and then talk about the convention, and campaigns and then the Oyster Fest and that’s our next big fundraiser.

The kitties seem fine.  I was a little hurt that Tiger has been elusive (more than usual) in the last couple of days.  She either pulls back from me or gets down when I come near to pet her.  OF course when she wants to be fed she doesn’t mind me.  She let me pet her this morning so this is confusing.   Although when it comes time for her annual shots and what not she really will be pissed at me.   As I said to Chris P yesterday my confidence as a pet parent goes right into the dumper.

This afternoon the handyman was coming over to do work that we agreed but I just got a message saying he will come tomorrow his job got him tied up.   I can straighten up a little more than I did.  Left things on the dining room table. 

Everyone in the family (my branch of the family) is fine.  Yesterday was Rob’s Birthday and I sent him the e-card.  He sent me a message.  I heard from Liz today she was doing heavy cleaning and Cousin Donna went to help.  Jim was working. 

Cousin Bill sent an article for all of Mom’s Family branch that included Uncles Ray and Lee from many years ago.  I wasn’t able to read it all but I will later.

The weather has been great.  The thunder and lightning shower that came through this morning was brief and dried up by the time I left for work.  The temperatures are in the 80’s now.  It may make walking interesting.

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…
