I can’t believe its Thursday again.  I almost didn’t do this for this week.   I am grateful I spent time with Liz and the kids this week past two weeks.  I can’t believe that J and ‘A’ are leaving for home tomorrow.  The two weeks went by so quickly.  I don’t know when we will get to see them again.  My hope will be at Christmas time.

I have heard from my cousin who has been recommending Hamrick’s for clothes shopping.  She sent me the addresses for us to go to.  Of course the coupons and ads will be outdated by the time I get there LOL.

I was chatting with my Cousin Carol who has a whole Myriad of health issues going on this month.  She seems to be upbeat and is grateful to have her husband of 20 years by her side.  He just returned to work so I don’t know how much he will be able to be at her side now. 

Work is going okay.  Busy and just waiting for updates regarding negotiations.  A couple of people were laid off in Dermopathology and I mentioned last week there were a few within my own area.  I am not sure what else is going on across the campus but I still have to get the update that came last week.  They are touting this as a beginning because there were supposed to be more layoffs than there were. 

I know I have said that I was pretty sure that the move to the new location would be by the next Christmas Recess.  It’s not.  More like the following year.  The new work spaces are going to be much smaller than they are now and that doesn’t seem to be making people happy about that.

I haven’t done much recently for the DTC.  Our next meeting will be next Thursday and it will be here.  I am going to try very hard to keep the house in decent shape until then.  There was a campaign kickoff for one of our State Senators tonight but I just couldn’t go.  That was the second event I missed in two weeks.  I will try to go to the other things (local that is) but the conventions are out.

The issue regarding our dues continues.  There isn’t much more than what I mentioned last week.  I am going to talk more with Mama Roberta when I see it later this month.  I am sorry there is so much pettiness on the state level of what should be a great organization.  I know it’s been there for years but what they are currently doing is just unethical.

The house is looking good.  The lawn guy was here reseeding the old patio out back and in the next few days T will be mulching the flower beds and reseeding the section of the front yard that looks sparse.  I am just waiting on the Lawyer Bob to reply to my text regarding the guy doing all the “handyman stuff that needs to be done. 

The weather has been awesome.  A little humid here and there but I missed it when I was outside.  It is cool some nights but not as cold as last week.  We are supposed to be getting some passing showers overnight but that’s it.  In the 70s for the next few days and some clouds but no rain.

The kitties are out of the doghouse and seemed to have behaved today.  I spent some time with Tiger today she wasn’t overtly loveable but she eventually got there.  Now they are downstairs hanging out.

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 …
