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  Of course the coupons and ads will be outdated by the time I get there LOL.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.

World Record

I think I broke the World record for shopping.I managed to spend 45 minutes and not break the budget for grocery shopping.I was home before 8 am.I started doing some cooking the chicken breasts should be done in another ten minutes.I have more to make.I am going to make sauce now.
I don’t think I have ever been in a store so early in the morning.There wasn’t a lot of people there at 7:15 in the morning on a Sunday.I may do that again some time.I did get a few things not on the list but still needed.Of course there was one thing I didn’t get.
Well now the chicken strips are done I tried a couple and wrapped the rest for snacks later.I have sauce going and later on I might do the roast again the right way this time.I finally decided to bring up a tray table from downstairs to put the laptop on it made it much easier on the counters.I was certain I would have to say up late but by 5:30 I was making pizza with some of the sauce and cooling the rest in a container with plastic bag.
The rain b…

Another Explosion

There was an explosion at the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York this morning.  An alert popped up in my email and began the details.  They are uncertain of the origin of the explosion but evacuated a few of the subway lines.  IT's about 20 minutes East of where DIane and Rogier live (if I know my directions).    I sometimes wonder if she could feel it or see it from where she was.  I guess it’s like here.  YOu can’t always hear noises on the other side of town.
ON the upside Today is Diane and Rogier's Third Wedding anniversary!  Did I send them anything? Nope.  Do I ever? Nope.  Unless you count  FB messages!
Work is fine.  Spent the morning scanning and the rest of the day doing mail.  The couriers redeemed themselves in my eyes.  They got here by 12.  Had the normal volume of mail.  I finished by 3.  The last hour consisted of readdress mail.
Today must have been bring in food day because there is chili in one aisle and lasagna in another and I turned down both!  Only be…

Snowy Monday

I had hoped to have  missed the snow they were predicting overnight and into today.  Unfortunately it started flurrying when I hit the city. Great. I didn’t bring my boots today.  There are snow showers predicted for Milford this morning and apparently for the city. Lovely we are getting another Nor’easter come Wednesday.  

There is one thing that I forgot to mention.  A strip mall had some damage during the storm friday and I just found out that it was the strip mall by my house.  I didn’t even make the connection until a coworker said something to me this morning.  I hadn’t recognized the names or the background pictures. I thought it was in another part of town.

Work went well.  The healthlogic came early so I jumped on that as soon as I could.  It was pretty quiet for Monday. Could have been the weather or could have been weekend activities.  I had fried proscuitto, baby arugula, melted provolone, baby arugula & tomato with roasted garlic aioli on toasted sourdough for lun…
