Getting back to Routine


I have been home for two and half days now and it hasn’t taken long to get back to daily routine.  The kitties were really funny when I got home.  As I drove up Sky was in the window looking out and then took off.  They both came down the stairs meowing at me.  So I spent some time with them and they did kind of sniff me and approach me.  After a while Tiger went her way and Sky pretty much followed me around.

I unpacked and hung up my stuff and did some laundry.  Also worked on stuff I left around.  I some cleaning of the boxes, and the hair ball that I am suspecting Tiger left me.  I spent most of it taking it easy.

I had a semi quick visit from Liz.  She was happy to see me and stuff and sort of apologized for being annoying before I left.  She wanted to offer some suggestions about doing the finances.  She suggested maybe if we can’t do it or I continue to have problems doing it may be\getting the lawyer to help.  We also set some boundaries about me calling on a daily basis.  She doesn’t like talking on the phone much so she asked if I had things to discuss write them down and then do it at our phone conversations when she calls.  So I agreed.   After that she checked some of the repairs that Bill Soda did and said she paid the bill.  She left after that and I went back to watching some TV and ordering a pizza for dinner. 

I had a phone session with Debra around 7.  We talked about the trip and my new boundaries with Liz.  She asked me how I felt about it and if I could find other avenues to be personable with.  I told her I was a little hurt but understood and could find other things to do in between. 

Around 9 I went to bed and Sky was a cuddle bug as you can see by my Facebook post that night. 

Saturday didn’t go as I had hoped.  I thought for sure Sky would be cooperative for his Vet appointment but he wasn’t.  I knew I should have put him in the crate as early as nine but felt it would be cruel so I waited until an hour before his appointment.  Now I have new scratches on my chest to prove how wrong I was.  He stayed inside the spring mattress almost entirely the whole time.  I tried to even rip the film that’s left on the spring mattress that allowed him to stay there.  I am hoping they won’t go up there as much anymore.  I have my doubts.  Anyway, I decided to give up and call and reschedule the appointment for him for the 23rd.  Once that was done I was relieved.  They didn’t seem to mind.  A while later he came out from under the bed and seemed fine.  He still hung out with me and above my head anytime I sat on the couch.  Tiger went into her nap mode and I didn’t see her until about 6 that night.

I talked with Jim for a half hour and we talked about cats, the woman’s club future, and other things of that nature.  It was great talking with him and he asked that when I got my hair done later on that day to get a couple of pictures of my new doo.  I did that but haven’t heard from him.

I got my hair done and it looks great.  My next appointment is in August.  She suggested that I get my hair permed again in September in time for the Holidays.  So that’s what I will be doing when the time comes.

I spent the evening watching TV and surfing the net and doing some laundry. 

Today getting into my normal Sunday routine.  Watching TV, sleeping as much as I can and now very shortly getting ready for Bingo with my visit to Liz’s later this afternoon.



It looks like I will have to do the watering this afternoon.

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…
