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.

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…
