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  Of course the coupons and ads will be outdated by the time I get there LOL.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

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…
