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  Well Liz called back and rescinded her approval and asked me to tell him it was too much of imposition and decide if I want to go.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.

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 …
