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.
