9             I am thankful for the weather.
10.         I am thankful for the men and women who choose to protect and serve their country and their citizens even at the worst possible times.  

Everyone seems to be doing good.  My nephew Rogier just ran the last marathon of the year in NYC and did very well.   I couldn’t do that kind of stuff.  Even if I trained for it.  I am really looking forward to going to Allentown to spend Thanksgiving with Jim and his kids.  Let’s just hope the weather is good.

My cleaning lady usually does an awesome job but there were some disappointments such as the downstairs bathroom.  I don’t really think she cleaned the floor that well as there was still a spot in the same place as a few days ago.  Oh well I guess I know what I will be doing Saturday.

Things at work are status quo.  Negotiations are continuing and the three major issues at this time are pension,  pay steps, and healthcare.  Yes I am aware the rest of the universe/business world doesn’t have these but we want to keep it for the future workers as well.  We have a membership meeting next week.  

I am really thankful this election season is over now it's time to move on (and pray).  The next election cycle will begin after the holidays I believe.  I also believe it will be the Governor’s race this time and other races that weren’t in the last one.   My hope is it isn’t as contentious as this last one.  Unfortunately I know that it won’t be true as there are many both in the legislature and constituents around the state are not too happy with our Governor.

I meet up with Courtney the Health Coach sometime next week still working on the logistics for that one.  I have my infusion next week if all goes accordingly.  I don’t think I have any other appointments this month (until I reschedule my dentist from yesterday).  I wasn’t feeling all that well yesterday.  My Ankle was bothering in the afternoon so I decided to cancel my session with Debra.

I heard from Dr.T yesterday and she told me there were 30 people at the meeting yesterday.   I don’t normally pass up a meeting unless I really have a conflicting appointment.   Someone from the American Cancer Society was there to accept the proceeds of our Cancer bracelet sales.   Our next big activities are the dog treats and the pies.  I just have to remember cancel bingo again for that week.  
The kitties are pretty good. Sky came to meet me at the door when I arrived tonight (been doing that alot lately) and I found Tiger just relaxing up here since I got home.  Now she is probably downstairs for a while.  She will be back later I am sure.  They have been sleeping with me most nights this week.  They seem to be eating their food every morning and getting their exercise before getting their snoozing on. Earlier this week I got a reminder from HOmeAgain that I need to  renew Tigerlily's Membership to their locating service.  It expires in January.  I have time yet to still do it.  SKy’s was done about a month ago.  I nearly squished SKy while trying to put things away last night on the table.  Ooops.

Tonight will be fairly quiet.  Watching the shows oh H&I until 10 (including the series finale of Hercules:The legendary Journeys).

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 …

I swear

I swear every time I go to do my taxes.I have issues whether it is internet connections, firewalls, or I have problems with my passwords.I started to get it set up around 8 and ended up using and I still have to fix it.Didn’t put info in that is needed.Will have to do it soon.
So Easter at my friend’s house.I have mixed feelings about it.It was a little hectic and awkward for me.The food phenomenal.The behavior of some really rude.I was asked to set the table yet this one woman who has only been here (in the country) five years doesn’t move.I didn’t want to wait for her to finish cutting something that could have been done in the kitchen.A few people spoke in Greek and when they know how to speak English whether it is limited or not.Everyone left me at the table with the old Greek lady who barely spoke English.I really didn’t appreciate it.The hostess interrupts her daughter while the daughter is speaking and doesn’t say excuse me.I let Roberta know when we were leavin…
