My First Day Back

Yesterday was incredibly busy and sad.  First a few people in my aisle let me know that one or both of the people that were supposed to be doing my job did nothing.  So the previous post with the pictures is what I was left with.  One person I talked with said “they” just reorganized and kept straightening my desk.  I just kept thinking not my job to worry about who was going to do my work. Although I am glad they did because I would find out later that Mama Joanie is retiring from the Dept.  As a matter of fact all three scanners were given their layoff notices last week.  According to JanetN it came out of Left “F” Field. They were expecting to find out later this month.  Janet will be paid for every year she has worked at the University and then retire.  She is still shocked but is acquiescent because now she can stay home and take care of her mother.  I called Mama Joanie and arranged to get together this weekend with her.  A has been affected by this and AC hasn’t but she is worried as well as I am. 

I heard from Liz yesterday she had some banking questions that I couldn’t answer such as why are they charging $5 for overdraft when I had money in the account and was I supposed to have money in the account to cover the so called “loan overdraft for the Debit card.  So on Thursday we are going to the Credit Union to find out these answers and about the service to help people balance their check books. 

The first of two packages from Roberta came yesterday.  It was the earmuffs, pair of pants, and the Irish Blessing Plate I gave to Neighbor Kim.  I had sent a message to Roberta to let her know it came and she later sent one back saying the other one will be here today.  I also had told her about Bingo and who had came to help.  We were pleased.

Well I have to get going….I have more to write but that will be in the next edition.

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…
