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)

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 …
