When I started this post I was watching POTC at World’s end for the billionth time waiting for the thunderstorm to arrive.    I was glad because I didn’t want to water the lawn that night.  The weather has been beautiful up until then.  It would rain Friday morning and again Friday night and is beautiful Saturday which is good because of Woodmont Day but back to rain on Sunday.  I was really hoping it would be cooler and I haven’t been disappointed.

I did something rather silly on Thursday after I balanced my checkbook I sent a text message to Liz letting her know but what I didn’t realize it also included Jim in the text…the conversation from several days ago.  So he asked me about it.  I didn’t really answer the question but I felt like I proved Liz right again.

Liz and I almost got into an argument earlier this week as we rehashing old family history.  It annoyed me but I didn’t say anything to her but the cats sure heard me when I got off the phone.  I would really like it if she got over old history and wasn’t so bitter about it.  Unfortunately it is very important to her.

My brother was going to come up Friday to be here for the 5K that is kicking off the Woodmont Day festivities shortly but he worked late and when he called he was tired.  I said he needs to listen to his body.  So he is leaving shortly to be here midmorning.  I was a little relieved because I wanted to make sure the house was in straightened.  So I have been doing the laundry again and shortly will be doing the litter boxes.  Any way we still may go to the Woodmont Day but also try the Savin Rock Festival and or the Sandcastle event at Walnut beach.  IF parking isn’t a problem.

Work is going okay.  I have been given a new task this week.  Data entry of Insurance refunds.  It is very interesting and organization is very important.  The new rebranding campaign continues this week.  The second e-training needs to be done by August 10.

I missed the monthly DTC meeting this week.  It dawned on me after I got off the phone with Liz that night.  We are preparing for the campaigns and have had some events coming up.  I understand there was a gathering somewhere to (I think it was a bar) to watch the final DNC convention but I was not interested.  WE do have to get ready for our biggest fundraiser in August and that’s the annual Oyster Festival in town. 

Friday I talked with Dr. T and she has a lot to do in the next year to prepare for the move to FL.  It will include dissolving the woman’s club/girls club.  She wants to tell the girls herself.  It will be quite interesting.

The kitties have been pretty good.  I suspect one is somewhere in this mechanism of this sofa recliner while the other one is under the bed in a newly made hammock.    I have to get more food for them this week along with kitty litter.  I spent a lot of time with Tiger today.

Now I am going to take a nap.

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…
