Saturday Doings

Today is going to be a lazy day for me.  I have stuff to do such as cleaning the bathroom and the laundry again.  I have to rewrap the chickens and the steaks I bought last night.  But my neck and shoulder hurts right now.  It’s the same problem I have had a few times a year.  I turn my head and neck and it feels like a massive pinch.  It hurts if I move it quickly or just a slightly.  I want to say it’s the way I slept on it but it could be anything.  I took the meds for it so hopefully they will kick.

I had a great time with Liz and Nelson last night.  We had steak and salad.  We chatted about family stuff catching up with those we haven’t heard from except through Facebook like our sister-in-law.  I asked her about the furnace stuff, and told her about the pet sitting gig.

Today is the Closer to Free Ride sponsored by the Smilow Cancer Center at Yale.   It is a fundraiser that started a few years back to raise funds for Cancer research at the Smilow Center.  IF you go to YouTube and search for Flash mob for Closer to Free and see the most awesome video done in the Union station in New Haven.  Anyway the cyclists can pick four different routes through the New Haven area.  It is much like the Folks on Spokes organization as well.  Oh yes it is a takeoff from the song Closer to Free from the group BoDeans Group in 1993.  It makes me cry every time I see it.  There are also other BTS videos on how it was done.  I have a couple of friends in the ride.   I hope the weather holds out for them.

It was so humid last night I put the fans back on and almost put the AC on and slept in the guest room.  It’s a little better now but it could be worse later.   It is about mid 70’s right now and could go up to mid-80 and cloudy.  I really would like it to rain but that’s between me, you and the wall.

BBC-America is still airing the Original Star Trek marathon today.  It may be the only thing I am watching.  I also know there will be much on the 9-11 anniversary.  I don’t know if I could really relive that.

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 …
