I was wondering why

I was quite surprised at the volume of traffic by quarter of the hour this morning and then it hit me like a Mack truck.  It is Columbus day Weekend!! People must have taken today off for the weekend.  I thought that right up until the slowdown in Long Wharf.  Let’s hope its light at quitting time tonight.

In the past I have taken this particular weekend off from work so that I could go Leaf peeping with Dave up north.  We haven’t done it in years we have taken motor coach trips too but again with his job and changes in our lives we haven’t.  I am pretty sure he went with Jim K. 

I found out some interesting news yesterday one of our Reimbursement Admin’s last day was yesterday.  It was quite sudden but she is moving out to Colorado.  I have worked with Sally for quite some time now and I will miss her.

I had a great session with Debra.  Basically talked about family relations, the events of the last few days and the upcoming holidays.  We plan on meeting next week.  It is a pretty safe bet that in December the last meeting will be the week prior to recess and the holidays.

I heard from Jim several times yesterday he was full of puns more than I usually am.  Anyway near the end of the day he let me know that his EX invited us for Thanksgiving.  So that pretty much saves his butt from looking any further.  I will still bring the pie and the cheese cake. 

Today was mostly refund checks and mail.  I was glad to be busy and now I am tired and hope to sleep well tonight.  I have to remember to request the day before Thanksgiving off so I can make it to Jim’s that day.  The Supervisor is only allowed to approve 8 people and so far three have been approved.

My thoughts and prayers to all the Floridians, Georgians, South and North Carolinians as they wait for the Hurricane Matthew to leave.  Please don’t send it this way..

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 …
