Mid Week Reflection

The end of last week brought visits to old friends and volunteering.  On Saturday I spent time my friend Nancy and her family as we discussed upcoming pet sitting gigs.  I was with them until maybe 11 and then I went to my sisters to spend some Sister time with her.  By the time I got home i wanted to do nothing in order to prepare for the longest Sunday I think i have had in awhile.

Sunday was spent at church all morning.  I went to the first mass and then after that from 7:45 until quarter of 1 we had coffee and after all the masses and sold tickets to our Auction and Christmas party raffle.  We had sold at least $300 worth of tickets.  That afternoon was the Veteran’s Day Salute at the Nursing Home in Derby CT.  It was great and an hour long and we were done by 4 and I was home by 5.

Of course we just came off of a shocking Election.  I worked for most of it.  I voted early in the morning and it didn’t take long but it was packed.  After work I did some poll standing with the candidates including State Rep G Slossberg and Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro.  It was good to spend time with them.  I hadn’t a real opportunity to speak to Congresswoman DeLauro since Mom’s death.  Eventually it was time for me to go to the Headquarters and I stayed til the end.  I tried several times to leave early but it helped when I started to feel sick.  I had food that didn’t agree with me (what else is new?).  

I heard from my Cousin who was running for DA in Texas and unfortunately she lost her bid for election.  

On a non-political event I received my long term service “certificate” I posted it to my facebook page and had lot of responses that I still have to respond back.  I was also given a link to choose my new gift.

Today I wasn’t really feeling great still I worked until 10:30 and then headed home. When I got home i showered and got comfortable and rested (and watched TV) fell asleep after doing some laundry.  I did manage to have a sandwich and soup.  The kitties have been sleeping with me for the afternoon.  However something tells me they will be getting up soon and go crazy.  

I decided to stay home tonight from everything including a dentist appointment and the woman’s club meeting.  I am just so tired  my ankle is not giving me any problems like it has all day (and anytime I walk) it really hurts and I have no idea what it is (some form of tendonitis i think).

Tiger is currently at the end of the bed and looks like she is doing a karate move.  Whup she moved out of my line of sight.  Now she up and left.  Sky followed and is off somewhere.  Tiger followed me downstairs when I needed to check some stuff.

The rest of the week should be quiet.  My hope is to relax and do some cooking.  I got some ingredients to make the chicken and the meatloaf.  I also would like to get some letters written.

Sunday after I have some things to do and then next week its pretty busy and getting closer to the holiday.

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 …
