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…

Yay Friday

I am so glad today is Friday.I woke up early again but stayed in bed for a bit.I didn’t lay down again after feeding the cats today.I did a little straightening up here and there.
I got a message from Livia last night letting me know I dated the check wrong and wanted a fresh one.I left another one with today’s date on it.I am just not sure when she is coming over.I didn’t want the house to look messed up after all the work she did.
The ride in was a bit anxiety filled.Several times I thought I was going to plow into the back of several cars.I wasn’t speeding but the cars in front of me didn’t seem to move.I was glad to get to the garage and then to the office.
In the morning I did some refunds and then spent time working on the readdress mail.It was about that time my guardian angel suggested I needed to do them (No kidding) and then as the afternoon progressed.She asked me to write up all that needs to be done because SR was upset that both of us were taking the beginning of next month…

i waited

I had been waiting since 10 to hear from AH my Easter Dinner host about dropping off the main dish to store in my refrigerator overnight.I was expecting her to call before coming. Well she called me around 4:30 to let me know that she didn’t need to come over she had managed to clean her own refrigerator.I had things that I wanted to do.
Liz ended up coming here for coffee and we got caught up with family news for the next hour.She brought me a choc bunny and flowers, and some sweets for breakfast and or desserts.She had mocked horror when I told her how the kitties were able to go in to a closet.She told me what was going on with her SIL in Waterbury and how this and the ride up to Waterbury was a bit much for Nelson.
I have been doing a few things here and there.Like folding clothes, doing the dishes, and very shortly cleaning up the bathroom-again.Earlier had the TV on and did some net browsing.
Oh and around 10 am this morning April the Giraffe finally had her baby.I can’t believe I …

I swear

I swear every time I go to do my taxes.I have issues whether it is internet connections, firewalls, or I have problems with my passwords.I started to get it set up around 8 and ended up using and I still have to fix it.Didn’t put info in that is needed.Will have to do it soon.
So Easter at my friend’s house.I have mixed feelings about it.It was a little hectic and awkward for me.The food phenomenal.The behavior of some really rude.I was asked to set the table yet this one woman who has only been here (in the country) five years doesn’t move.I didn’t want to wait for her to finish cutting something that could have been done in the kitchen.A few people spoke in Greek and when they know how to speak English whether it is limited or not.Everyone left me at the table with the old Greek lady who barely spoke English.I really didn’t appreciate it.The hostess interrupts her daughter while the daughter is speaking and doesn’t say excuse me.I let Roberta know when we were leavin…
