Mid Week Reflection

This time last week I was in Zebulon waking to very humid weather enjoying the last days of my incredible trip to NC. I will have many memories of that time and look forward to my next visit (in a much cooler season).

When I got home it was back into my regular routine with the hopes and ideas that somethings would change for me (time management, finance management, relationship management).  The weekend was focusing on kitties that made me feel needed. 

My first few days back at work have been very hectic and busy.  I am beginning to get back to normal as far as work volume.  I would like to say the moral here is a mixed bag.  People have been laid off, found new jobs, or have retired all together.  I don’t know if there is any more coming but here is hoping its over for now.

The once a week check in with Liz is working so far.  She stopped by twice over the weekend once to welcome me home and apologize for possibly spoiling my trip because I didn’t take care of finances properly before leaving.  She offered some suggestions and tomorrow we are going to the credit union to see why they charged me a fee for overdraft when clearly I had money and just what was the $40 and change charge for on the debit card.  One thought came to mind during the phone session yesterday.  Liz had promised to make sure she would be focused on our conversation and yet BIL kept interrupting.  I am sure she discussed this with him before she called and told him a couple of times she was on the phone with me.  I just think it was damn selfish of him to do this.  Apparently he has been in an unfriendly funk.

Talked with Jim earlier this week via phone and text.  He seems to be fine and the last time I actually heard from him was over the last few days via text.  I sent him one this morning but haven’t heard from him yet.  I think he may be entertaining the idea of going to my cousin’s farewell service next week.  I ended up calling him after all.

I am afraid my suspicions about the woman’s club are becoming more and more substantial.  I got an email from Dr. T announcing they have found a house in Florida.  The winters are getting to be too much for her husband and his health.  She will discuss it more in detail later.  She had eluded to the fact that she would be looking at jobs out of state within the next year.  I realize this may not happen soon or it could happen within the next year.  I don’t know but I think it behooves her to let us know what the future of the club is.  Yesterday I was looking at website for any volunteering opportunities.

I heard from Roberta this week.  She sent both packages of my stuff to me that I couldn’t pack in the suitcase and it also included a bottle of BBQ sauce that I promptly used for a mini pizza.  Note: it really doesn’t work well on homemade pizzas.

She finally has a NC driver’s license and she was relating to me what she had to go through just to get it.  It sounded really disconcerting and hopefully it won’t have to happen again.  She was quite surprised by the news about Dr. T and she was expecting one from her regarding the news.  I sent her two GFWC NC club websites to look at.  One is in Carey and the other is a quite a bit farther than Zebulon even though we have travelled that far ourselves.  She promised she would look into them when they are more settled in.

The DTC is at the moment quiet.   Candidates for local offices have already been making house visits (or door knocking) to get their names out there.  Of course all the delegates heading to Philadelphia in two weeks for the Democratic National Convention (I am not one of them).  It will be very interesting to hear and see the stories that come back.  For those of us back home I am sure there will be fundraisers and stuff soon.  I see my friend Nancy is hosting a Jazz concert for HC that’s in August.   Then later that week is the Oyster Festival (to me that’s a sign it’s the end of summer).  I still have to finish the minutes before the next district meeting which is a week from tomorrow.

So things are changing…

Ended up

Because I wasn’t feeling well last Thursday night  and the lack of sleep from it I barely did anything Friday.  I did some laundry, cleaned out one of the litter boxes, emptied the dishwasher only to fill it up again. I made myself an early lunch of steak and potato and had yogurt.  I was not anxious to eat too much as my shoulder still hurt. I think the aches and pains are from the amount of cheese I had in the last couple of days.   I fell asleep for the afternoon watching the X Men double feature.   I did fold some of the clothes and sheets and put more laundry in.  You are probably wondering where all these clothes are coming from.  Some of them have been there a few days and needed refreshing. When I didn’t fold the clothes I watched TV.  I actually sat through Hawaii 5-0 haven’t done that in months.  It's a good show.  It has done a few cross overs with the NCIS franchise (mostly the LA show) now there is some discussion prompted by articles that that H50 will do crossovers …

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…
