I was very thankful for rain this morning.  That meant I didn’t have to water the lawn.  It was still kind of gray this morning when I left for work but I am not sure what it will be like when I leave work this afternoon.  I did notice a hazardous weather alert in my email box so it is pretty obvious it won’t be good.   Well after my errands It will be a night in.
Things at work are currently status quo at the moment.   I am getting caught up with the work that was collecting on my desk while I was on vacation this week.   Elsewhere on the campus the guy who smashed a window he was offended by has resigned and no charges will be pursued.  In a statement/message released by the President today the window will be replaced with stained glass.  Others of this nature (racially oppressive) will probably move into a more appropriate setting (such as Art Galleries, museums).
I talked with my brother last night he is doing good.  He was enjoying his mid-week day off and getting ready for work for the rest of the week.  I am a little embarrassed I didn’t ask about my nephews and niece but I did ask about Ms. Kitty.  I will be checking in with him over the weekend I am sure.  I guess the reason I don’t always ask is I could contact them myself.  I just need to actually do it.
Liz is meeting up with me this afternoon at the CU to check something on the account.      Hopefully we can both understand it.  She shared some pictures of the kids in Florida this past week.  Both her and her husband have been doing their church, and community service, and doctor appointments.
I haven’t heard from “E” except maybe through FB.  Her kids on the other hand have been rather vocal on same site.  Niece “D” is struggling with some issues in her work life that her health has been affecting.  Not sure what is going to happen but maybe it’s time I call her instead of IM’ing on the computer.  Every so often Nephew J and his bride “N” post things about their furry friends or the latest bar activity.

My attempt at keeping up with the birthdays is not going so well this week.  I missed several Just in the last couple of days between family, friends, neighbors, coworkers.  I am going to have to sit down this week and do it sometime.

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…
