I am a day early this week because I have stuff to do.  Sis went shopping with me on Monday and we did pretty well.  She called me later to see if I got home and wanted to apologize if she was sounding or acting like Mom too much.  I said it was okay because I take what I need and leave the rest.  Something we seem to be getting from each other.  Meaning things we have said to each other.

She did end up going to my aunt’s wake and funeral to represent at least half of us.  She should be coming back sometime today and then getting ready for her Grandchildren from South Carolina.

My Bro was supposed to go to the wake but he sent a message indicating he may have to work later than expected and he made not be able to make it.  So that means one of two things.  He is going to the funeral this morning (Wednesday) and not coming up to Connecticut for the Scholarship Presentation or he missed the funeral too and will come up.  Third option is he isn’t doing either and has to work.

I heard from Mama Roberta Tuesday.  She is still unpacking the house and doing all the things you have to do when you move to a new home or new state.  She said the rain they got from TS Bonnie was heavy and seemed one-sided.  AS in it would rain on one side of the street.  We talked about things going on up here and a promise to check in on the house before I come home tonight.

Neighbor Sean has promised to look out for me with the new Lawn guy.  He feels I shouldn’t have to put in any more plants and shrubs and that he knows I am not much of a garden person.  He did remind me about the watering constantly for the new seedlings.

For weeks now I have been at odds with a woman at work who has been really distant, rude and obnoxious.  I found out why yesterday she is dealing with a family member dying and it seems it is more imminent than it was.   So I am less willing to smack her up the side of her head then I was.

The weather this week has been awesome.  Well except-no even Memorial Day it was nice with the rain that didn’t last long.  We are supposed to get some more in the days ahead but I firmly believe we still need it.

I have two Dr. Appointments this week.  The eye doctor today and the Cardiologist Thursday.  I don’t think I lost as much weight as the cardiologist asked me too but I hope it will enough.  I still need him to fill out the FMLA forms for the next round.

The new window is being installed today and I am really excited.  I can’t wait to have it open and use it.  It certainly would help in the breezes and airing out the house.

Wow it got cold fast

It dropped at least 10 degrees in a day or so.Yesterday I was being blown down the street while walking and today I have bundled up more.I heard we may get snow flurries tonight.Just as we are expecting the snow flurries the CPTV is rebroadcasting the documentary Blizzard of 78.
I had a good session with Debra.Talked about the events of the last couple of weeks and she is confident that I will be smart about the “Meetups”.She also recommended to not discuss it with Sis.We will meet next week regular time.
I did talk to Liz via text after I had received an invitation to my Niece’s baby sprinkle.(That’s what they are calling it cute huh?)Tentative plans are to go together.It will be later on this month.A week after Cheryl’s party.I am thinking it’s time for another outfit.I need to make time to get a gift for both parties.
I can say with relief that my traffic ticket I got last week was paid in full.They got it within the last couple of days.Bills are paid.
Work was fine we had a staff meet…

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 …
