I think my nephew Adam thinks I am a pita.  After I called Liz yesterday asking her if it would be okay to invited Mama Roberta to the lunch Birthday party for my BIL I sent emails asking him if it would be okay.  Well Liz called back and rescinded her approval and asked me to tell him it was too much of imposition and decide if I want to go.  I said it that way and he said it was lunch.  I told him it would be okay so I still may be going to the lunch.
My nephew Chris is going in for hernia Surgery sometime next week.  It will be a one-day surgery and after that it will be limited for a few days (and possibly five days out of work).  I say possibly because I can’t remember what was exactly said because it was a couple of days ago I was part of the conversation.
I haven’t had a chance to talk to the rest of my nieces or nephews but I get updates from Facebook.  I guess like everyone else does with their families.
The kitties are doing pretty well.  Sky has slept with me almost every night and at times would play with my feet.  Tiger continues to be loved on her own terms.  I suspect they have found their way up on top of the wardrobe in the guest room as I have noticed things knocked over.  Happily it hasn’t been the iron I have up there.  I did have to bribe them a few times to come up from the cellar a few times this week so I am expecting some unpleasant piles of goo soon.
This week I found out that our collections depart will be outsourced and the Lead Admin who was my boss for a while a few years ago will “no longer be needed”.  I am saddened by this.  She has been here for a good 15 years.  Everyone there I have known a good 15 years as well.
I am so looking forward to Roberta’s visit next week.  She will be here for ten days and from what she said she hasn’t made concrete plans.  In the next few days I plan on making sure the house is in good shape and not embarrassing to me or uncomfortable to her.  The first night she arrives we are having dinner with friends in Trumbull.  After that not sure what we will be doing. 
The DTC is working on campaigns but so far I haven’t been called on.  I would like to know when we are getting our Headquarters.  I guess right now we meet up with the candidates or just show up to places.  I am not sure that’s such hot idea.  There won’t be a 4th District meeting this month because it will be too close to Oyster Fest.

The woman’s club future is very short (within the year) with the new development not sure what we will be doing and when.
The weather has been absolutely beautiful.  I know we had some rain earlier in the week but it feels like forever since it rained.  It was 65 degrees in the house this morning.  I don’t know what it is now as I haven’t gone out all day but expect it to be nice this evening.  I have noticed it staying dark when I get up in the morning and I have noticed it getting darker earlier each night.

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…
