The Weekend

I am really looking forward to this weekend again.  It should be fairly quiet for the most part.  I will get my shopping ordered tonight for the weekend and spend the weekend catching up on pen pal letters and laundry.  I do need to do some more clothes shopping but I can do it closer to the time of the trip.
I may have to get a new pair of white pants in the shopping trip.  The pair I got from Macy’s on Memorial Day are currently being soaked/washed for stains I got yesterday.  I was very unaware (until much later) that a pen that was in my book bag was creating havoc on my back side (of my pants).  So it is currently being washed a second time with oxi-clean and tide.  I had it soaking in oxi-clean overnight inside the washing machine and most if not all is out.  At least from what I saw of it. 
I won’t be able to see Sis or BIL as they have a full weekend between the grands, a couple of activities they were invited to in Westport and Norwalk.  They also have some parties to attend and I am pretty sure I won’t see them until at least Tuesday.
I will probably call Jim some point during the weekend.  I don’t think I did last week although that was probably because I just said goodbye to him on the previous Thursday. I had a few text messages from him on Liz’s birthday. 
Tonight will be Boboli Pizza for dinner and then start on the letters.  I think I will have spaghetti on Saturday for dinner and then chicken or what not on Sunday. 
Work was fine…had some slow moments and then picked up by lunchtime and then slowed down by break time. I made sure I found things to do if there wasn’t anything available.
Heard from Dr. T regarding our dues.  There was an issue and they never got the check and looking into it but not before they mentioned that Dr. T hadn’t been to a state meeting.  If that’s one of the reasons why they are not accepting or didn’t cash or do whatever than they should say so.  Then they should step down from the position because not everyone can go to the meetings (but I would)

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…
