My nephew Kris posted on his facebook page/timeline that he has been taking hormones for 6 months now.  My first thought was okay.  This also brought back the message he left on text that there is much to discuss when we see each other next week.  I did ask someone at work whom I trust why they would be taking hormones (and LS explained)  it could be an imbalance.  You see Kris was born Kristina (actually I don’t remember her Russian name but when she came to us it was Kristina) and about ten years ago she came out as gay.  It was about a year or so ago where he announced he was transgendering to male.  He has gotten many messages of support.

The kitties are overall doing well.  I picked Tiger up yesterday and she jumped away from me and scratched me.  I put neosporin on it so it won’t be so bad but she avoided me for a while.  I am concerned she is getting too heavy and expect the Vet to say something in January.

I had my infusion today in Hamden and had two others with me.  In between chatting with them and falling asleep it finally went okay.  Despite my efforts at hydrating (and it was cold) it took them a few tries to get the needle and line in.  I finished by 3 and by 3:30-4 I was on my way home.  My next appointment is in Dec.

This weekend is a big weekend that I have been looking forward to in both excitement and trepidation.  First is the Ladies guild Dinner and Auction that is on Saturday.  Those who wanted tickets from me got them already from the rectory and others.  I have to go on Saturday to turn in the money and the rest of the tickets.  This is supposed to be the biggest fundraiser for the ladies guild.   Sunday is the pies and dog treats activity for the GFWC Woman’s Club and girls club.  This one is always fun and we are doing something new (the dog biscuits).

The weather has been incredibly nice with some much needed rain.  It is supposed to get up into the 60 for the next couple of days and then drop in temperature.  I am expecting rain the day I leave for Allentown.

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…
