A Day Early

Mama Roberta arrived a day early safely but a frazzled because of the traffic jams she was caught in multiple times.  She arrived here between 10 and 11.  We sat and relaxed and talked for nearly an hour. While I waited for her I did a few things such as downstairs bathroom cleaning, some laundry, watched TV.
Tonight we are having dinner with friends of Mama’s in Trumbull.  These are women she has worked with for 20 years and they get together monthly for dinner (well used to before they moved to NC).  So she invited me to go along.  I am not sure where we are going but it should be fun.  I may have to get more money.
Tomorrow we are getting together with Dr. T for a short while before she leaves for FL on Thursday.  Man do we have a lot to catch up on.  I guess she is packing the house and taking stuff down there.  Actually it isn’t a guess, she actually told me that is what she is doing.
Work is going well.  I worked on a big pile of refunds/data entry.  The mail was good too.  Still have to work on the “e-training” the next chapter and the deadline is tomorrow.  There are two collections going on the one for KG and JN.  The one for JN is for retirement party on the 19th.  JN told me yesterday that her last day will be my birthday.  I feel the next couple of months are going to be filled with a number of retirements.  Actually I know it.
There is a union meeting on Wednesday.  I found out about it the other day while I was chatting with TM.  Unfortunately, it is at lunch time and I am leaving early that day for some appointments.  I hope they have made continuing progress and from the last email we got it sounds like we did.
In the last few days received an email asking for Volunteers for the DTC “booth” set up and working it for the Oyster festival.  I do have to help out but I am not really looking forward to it. 
Well its time for me to go.  Have a great day.

Wow it got cold fast

It dropped at least 10 degrees in a day or so.Yesterday I was being blown down the street while walking and today I have bundled up more.I heard we may get snow flurries tonight.Just as we are expecting the snow flurries the CPTV is rebroadcasting the documentary Blizzard of 78.
I had a good session with Debra.Talked about the events of the last couple of weeks and she is confident that I will be smart about the “Meetups”.She also recommended to not discuss it with Sis.We will meet next week regular time.
I did talk to Liz via text after I had received an invitation to my Niece’s baby sprinkle.(That’s what they are calling it cute huh?)Tentative plans are to go together.It will be later on this month.A week after Cheryl’s party.I am thinking it’s time for another outfit.I need to make time to get a gift for both parties.
I can say with relief that my traffic ticket I got last week was paid in full.They got it within the last couple of days.Bills are paid.
Work was fine we had a staff meet…

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 …
