Made it safely

I made it safely to Allentown despite the fact that I didn’t leave until after 6 and forgetting my suit that I was going to wear tomorrow.    I some how misplaced my eyeglass case with the regular glasses in them and I could have sworn I had them when I left the house. I got to the bank with no problem and headed to the parkway but the GPS insisted I take 95 instead. When I finally got to the merritt it wanted me to take route 8 up to the Northern part of the state into NY.  Once I got to where I was fairly familiar I was fine.  Until the GPS wanted me to take Garden STate Parkway...through the GWB and the other tunnels.  So after a little anxiety sessions I turned back to 287 and started from scratch. Just before I got to the tappan zee bridge I got off at NYack and rt 303 and found the direction I needed to be eventually I was on the way to Jim’s.  I got there about 10 and started unpacking a few minutes later Jim came home.

We relaxed and chatted until I got a phonecall.  IT was Liz...we talked about leaving the suit at home and that I got lost (a little) but she was very impressed that i got here.  She was encouraging me to not beat myself up.  I told her I did a lot of deep breathing exercises.  

After that Jim did some cleaning of his car and the front door.  Afterwards we took a 1 1/2 mile trek in Trexler Park.  WE talked about work, retirement, and health I think we had a great time.  When we finished we came back to the house he made some phone calls and I jumped on here.  

Jim went to lunchtime meeting until about 2 and I watched TV got a chance to see a show I don’t get to see much in Connecticut.  The big Valley.  We used to get me TV but we don’t anymore.  Rambling...anyway I went to Wegman’s and got one of their salads.  I can’t believe how much it has changed since I was here last.  

Jim came home a while later and we went out to the book store at LeHigh Valley Mall.  It reminds of the one in North Carolina that Mama Roberta and Papa Mike brought me to survive the heatwave.

Once we finished the bookstore we headed to the the movie theater to get the times of the movies we decided we would go see.  This jackass as he is walking by us turns around and stands right in front of our window (we were sitting in the car) blocking our view.  He gets in our face can I help you and jim explained to him and the guy told Jim he almost hit the big asshole.  Well of course Jim felt terrible.  I told him know he didn’t the guy was being a sh*thead.  Anyway we got the times and headed home for 45 minutes.

We went to Applebee's in town for dinner Jim had some steak dinner and I had the Thai Shrimp salad with dressing and tea.  It gave us about about an hour before the movies.  We headed to the AMC theater over on Citronia.  

We chose Fantastic BEasts and where to find them.  We had reclining seats and were they ever comfortable.  We chose seats (very few theaters do that I think) second row and it was great.  Three d effects were great.  I recognized a few voices.  We got out of the movie just about 10 and now settling in for the night.

It looks like I have made a new friend.  “Kitten” my brother’s cat has allowed me to pet her, she has come when I called and sat with me and she cuddled on the bed for a bit and now took off to be with her Dad.

Tomorrow I will have some time to myself so I probably will relax while Jim does some of his daily stuff.  We will be going to his Ex’s house around 2 where we will have dinner with his family, and Claudia’s Sister’s family whom I haven’t seen in quite sometime actually.  I had a feeling they would be there.  

Afterwards Jim has an early evening meeting and then we may go to another movie (either Dr. Strangelove or Trolls).

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 …
