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..

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…

Jeans Day

This is becoming my favorite day of the week.  It's the day we can wear jeans to work.  It is a day to be comfortable but still be functionable and get work done.  Today it may have been a little too comfortable as I found my falling asleep a number of times at my desk.  Today was a little bit of mail and the rest of the day was scanning.  It went pretty well with a few glitches.  I have put in my time for my appointments for July.  I have taken all of Wednesday off and that will be explained in a moment.
I went to the food court outside the hospital for lunch and got some chinese food.  It was pretty good.  THere was a concert in the courtyard next door.  It was great listening to the music.  It has been a long time since I saw those there.
I have to admit I am still not feeling completely well.  I had my dental checkup yesterday and it looks like i am having a root canal done next wednesday..  It hadn’t been hurting for the last few days until they began to poke and prod it.  Hone…
