11.         I am thankful I got a new phone for what I consider a reasonable price.

I have to actually start this with I feel like crap this morning even though I have been feeling okay.  Despite a few aches and twinges of pains.  I had too much steak with fat on it and caused me to have problems during the night.  I won’t be anxious to eat anything today.    I am picking up my meds tomorrow on the way home from the cardiologist.  He has the FMLA forms signed and I need to do whatever it is to get them to the HR office.
Missy Tiger has been needy in the last couple of days especially in the morning.  I guess I take my chances and hug her and keep petting her then.  Sky was nowhere to be seen after breakfast me thinks he headed to under the bed to sleep.  He was running around crazily this morning.  He did that a few times in the last couple of days.  He has his vet visit on Saturday.  He also attempted to go outside last night it made me nervous.
Yesterday I got an invitation to BIL’s birthday dinner at Gusto’s here in town.  I haven’t been to that place in quite some time but it is great place as I recall.  Its busy at Holiday time.  It is on the 14th which means I will have to cancel bingo that day.
It was Nephew John and his wife Nicole’ 2nd Wedding Anniversary.  I was able to send an e-card and they replied really quickly and of course they got a lot of well wishes on FB.  I can’t believe it’s been two years already.  I hope they come for a visit soon as I think they are planning on moving back to Seattle when his latest enlistment is finished.
My Cousin Lee called last night.  I know he was having a really hard time dealing with the loss of his little brother.  He is leaving Friday for SC to scatter his brother’s ashes at Pauly’s favorite beach.  His sister will be flying in and meeting him down there.

I know I have mentioned changes coming for this Department well yesterday I discovered that YMG will cease to exist on August 30th and “rebranding itself as “Yale Medicine”.  I think its named after a monthly magazine here.  It will entail training, luncheons to celebrate the renaming and a few things.  I think this the third or 4th rename of the department as a whole since I started working here.
President Salvoy announced today there is a New of Forestry and Environmental Studies.  She is Ingrid Burke and will be coming from the Haub School of Forestry in Wyoming.  She will be here until 2021.  She will be joined by her husband who also worked at University of Wyoming.
Handyman Bill will be coming either today or tomorrow to fix the sprayer on the sink and to look at the vent in the downstairs bathroom.  Sis offered to come and stay but we didn’t get that far.
On the way home the other day I stopped at the light and thanked a policeman who was working traffic down the street from a construction project.  He was very appreciative of the sentiment.

Enjoy your Thursday everyone.

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…
