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.

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…


I am very tired right now.  I ended up sleeping on the couch last night when I saw a creepy crawly centipede (long legged type) on the ceiling and my boy trying to attack it.  I don’t know if he ever got it but I did look when I came up to get dress.  I didn’t see it.
I am feeling pleased with myself this morning (toot toot).  I finally made the tomato sauce I have been wanting to make for the past two weeks from All  It wasn’t all that hard to do. I started preparing it around 5 and turn it on as I was leaving.  It should be ready by the time I get home.  I posted about it on FB…My cousin’s Wife Becky liked it.
Work has been good so far busy as usual.  I checked in with LAS and she told me the services for FC are on Thursday I found the obituary but it is completed yet.  I will be taking the morning off and I may come back by lunch time.  It will be in Cheshire.
I found out that starting this week until we are caught up I will be scanning every Thursday and Friday all day.…
