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.

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…
