Saturday Doings

I really hate computers sometimes.  Late this afternoon my laptop decided that windows needed an update.  Do you know that at 10 to midnight it is still going on?  I have had to use my PC in the old room and it had to go through several Norton updates of its own..  Its already slow and I still have lots of stuff to move around and update from when I was doing on the laptop.

Besides the computer issues today has been fairly quiet.  I did a little bit of laundry, made pizza for lunch and a couple of frozen dinners from lean cuisine for dinner.  I also have been grazing on stuff as well.  I watched TV did some surfing on the laptop until the big update occurred.

I called Mama J this morning and talked with her for quite some time.  I had received some news about her family from DeniseK at work.  I wanted to call her then but Denise felt it would be better to wait because she was upset still.  The news and further story was that J’s daughter and family had a house fire in the last ten days and it gutted the kitchen, the living room.  Now her family is spread all over and unfortunately Christina (J’s daughter) hasn’t been well either.  They will be displaced from their home for six months.  They are struggling with this and other challenges as well.  J has been so upset and feeling guilty that she can’t do anything to help.  As we finished the phone call we promised to call each other again soon and she even told me I could call her as late as 9 pm.

After finding out I missed a call from Mama R last night I called her mid morning.  She called me back late this afternoon.  They are fine.  They have settled back in from their trip to see their Daughter.  We got to talking politics when she told me her state had early voting.  There was a name that she didn’t vote on (for judges) and so she didn’t.  She told me she was going to a neighborhood open house for Halloween tonight.  She said the neighborhood has grown to 46 houses now.  Now if she would just go join one of the many woman’s clubs in the area I would be very happy.

Did you know today was National Cat Day?  I  had forgotten about it until I saw a post from my Friend John and his wife MaryAnn cooing over their cats.  If I had known it was National Cat Day I would have spoiled my two babes even more.  As it is they are both sleeping on the bed where I am heading now.

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 …
