9             I am thankful for the weather.
10.         I am thankful for the men and women who choose to protect and serve their country and their citizens even at the worst possible times. 

I am thankful that my siblings will not be pushing for me to get a condo or move anywhere but where I am right now.  I am glad that my niece Cheryl could see that before the search continued.    Her husband Mike will be coming to take a look at things that could be changed in the house.  I chatted with my Niece Heather earlier this week for her birthday Most of the younger generations of the family went back to school.

The kitties are really good. One of them or both of them got into the attic sometime yesterday.  I probably didn’t put the chest I have been using as door lock back securely and one of them went Herculean on it.  I was quite surprised that Tiger didn’t leave the room when I decided to sit in the guest room while my computer was charging and I was watching TV.  Sky looked a little confused to see me on the bed too.  They seem to be healthy even though they have been trying to get to the flowers from Jim.

Work went significantly better than Tuesday this week.  We had our CFO visit our side of the office on Wednesday.  We are preparing for a couple of life celebrations.  One is a “wedding shower” for a co-worker this afternoon and over the next two weeks two full on retirement parties for one lady.

The GFWC international Organization lost a dear friend this week in the form of Actor Hugh O’Brian.  His Young Leadership Foundation called The HOBY was a program that we lent support over the years.  He died on Tuesday at the age of 91. 

On the local level we have a beach cleanup project this coming Sunday for a few hours in the morning.  I don’t remember what time I have to be there.  We have our first General meeting next week and I am looking forward to it.  We are already scheduling our holiday activities and our Cancer Awareness bracelet sales.

The DTC is in full campaign mode now.  We have our campaign Headquarters being set up now and we have quite a number of things to do before election day.  Of course that will include district meetings as well.  The next one is on the 22nd and at my house.

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…
