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.

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…

Busy Friday

I spent a couple of hours working on mail and sending out refunds for the afternoon mailing.  By the end of the morning I spent it working on scanning until the end of  the day.  I  don’t feel I got a lot done but I did have some problems with a couple of the batches.
I did make an appointment with Courtney the health coach for next week.  I was beginning to think I missed an appointment but when I checked with her I found that I hadn’t.  It will be on Wednesday at 4:30.
I wasn’t sure I could eat anything chewy yet so I had broccoli and cheese soup for lunch.  It was good and I did chew on the left side of the mouth with no problem but as usual I probably used both sides.  I had been drinking lots of water at least I tried.  I had some coffee.
It was also refrigerator cleaning day at work.  I had forgotten and manage to lose a new coffee creamer that I put in there from Thursday next time that happens I am bringing in a cooler  so I don’t waste three dollars.  It's already on the nex…

Jeans Day

This is becoming my favorite day of the week.  It's the day we can wear jeans to work.  It is a day to be comfortable but still be functionable and get work done.  Today it may have been a little too comfortable as I found my falling asleep a number of times at my desk.  Today was a little bit of mail and the rest of the day was scanning.  It went pretty well with a few glitches.  I have put in my time for my appointments for July.  I have taken all of Wednesday off and that will be explained in a moment.
I went to the food court outside the hospital for lunch and got some chinese food.  It was pretty good.  THere was a concert in the courtyard next door.  It was great listening to the music.  It has been a long time since I saw those there.
I have to admit I am still not feeling completely well.  I had my dental checkup yesterday and it looks like i am having a root canal done next wednesday..  It hadn’t been hurting for the last few days until they began to poke and prod it.  Hone…
