Well I think the Indian summer is over.  It was much chillier this morning than it has been all week and it got cloudy mid-day.  It is was in the high 60’s in Milford and New Haven during the day.  I am just waiting for some showers to come through as predicted and we are supposed to get the same thing tomorrow.  Not so sure about the weekend.

There was a mix up with the infusion this week so I had an afternoon off but a full and active day today.  I had my appointment and infusion all in one.  Then I had to get blood work done and that took longer than I had planned. They had to get approval and info from Anita the APRN.  I toyed with the idea of going back to work but as the time got later I decided to go home.  My next infusion is on the 17th in Hamden or Milford. I see Anita again in April but I see the Doc in January.

I have a Democratic meeting tonight at Headquarters.  It’s our 4th District and I suspect we will be helping a few campaigns afterwards.  I hope it isn’t a late night.  I have so much work to do tomorrow.  I probably will be bringing home some lawn signs.  Better late than never.

We got the gift list all resolved for the Woman’s club delivery (at least I am hoping that’s the case) I am sure we will have further discussion at next month’s meeting.  Our annual Cancer awareness bracelet sale at both stores did very well.  The proceeds will go to the local Relay for Live chapter and will be our guest next month. 

The Ladies Guild is great.  We did very well at the bake sale and now preparing for the Auction.  Guess who volunteered to take care of the tickets?  Just waiting for the phone calls to start rolling in (they have to call for tickets and have to send money).  I have to attend the Board meeting in November. 

When the mix up happened yesterday I got really nervous and I explained to Supervisor what happened and he understood and allowed me to do today’s adventure.   I also asked him if the something occurred it can be adjusted if I came back.

The Union action that took place went well.  Still not sure what the purpose was for it but it was successful.  I am not sure when the next update meeting will be.  I am pretty sure there will be stuff soon.

All my family is doing well.  I will be spending time with Liz and family this weekend for a birthday party.  I probably won’t see them too much until the holidays.

On a daily basis Jim sends me IM’s from things he shares with me from FB.  We also try to text each other (or three-way between myself, him and Liz) every morning or as of lately anytime we can.  As I mentioned earlier I will be going to his house for the Thanksgiving holiday and having dinner with the kids and his ex.  It will be great to see them as I don’t keep I touch with them much.

My Sister I Law E (Bob’s widow) is probably in the Philippines by now. Her kids are all living their lives here in the states.  I don’t know when she will be back to visit (probably next fall)

Ended up

Because I wasn’t feeling well last Thursday night  and the lack of sleep from it I barely did anything Friday.  I did some laundry, cleaned out one of the litter boxes, emptied the dishwasher only to fill it up again. I made myself an early lunch of steak and potato and had yogurt.  I was not anxious to eat too much as my shoulder still hurt. I think the aches and pains are from the amount of cheese I had in the last couple of days.   I fell asleep for the afternoon watching the X Men double feature.   I did fold some of the clothes and sheets and put more laundry in.  You are probably wondering where all these clothes are coming from.  Some of them have been there a few days and needed refreshing. When I didn’t fold the clothes I watched TV.  I actually sat through Hawaii 5-0 haven’t done that in months.  It's a good show.  It has done a few cross overs with the NCIS franchise (mostly the LA show) now there is some discussion prompted by articles that that H50 will do crossovers …

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…
