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.

Moved Slowly

This is a definite slow day.  This morning did our regular routine for a Saturday.  The kitties have been fed, and have been let down into the cellar,  I cleaned out the litter boxes, and went back to sleep with the TV watching me...get the picture?
Peapod arrive just after 9:30.  I didn’t need to see them as Sky was running up the stairs.  The driver pulled into the neighbor’s (Hockey guy’s) driveway.  I asked her not to do it she explained it wouldn’t be for long and she figured it was mine.  I just shrugged my shoulders and resigned myself to the fact she will do it.   Please for the love of all that’s right next time listen to me.  BEsides there was plenty of room in front of the house!  I got every thing that I ordered and put it all away.  Another list is already started for next week.
The weather sites got it wrong again.  One of them said we were supposed to get rain this morning.  It was supposed to start sometime after 8:30.  Need I have to tell you it never came?  The sun fin…

REally Busy

I am so sorry I haven’t finished the weekend entries.  I just was too tired and Monday was busy.  I know I have my Florida adventures to write up but again.  Not enough time or energy lately.  
I am looking forward to next weekend as I am meeting up with Siduri and we are going to spend the day in the city and visit Peabody museum and have lunch.  On sunday is baby Giada’s Christening and I am really looking forward to that.  I haven’t met Giada yet but from the pictures her parents and grandparents post she is beautiful.
WE had some late night rain last night and early morning rain today.  We may have more as the week progresses but that’s okay.  Meteorologist Geoff Fox began his second week at his summer Gig at Channel 8 this week.  His first week went well even with some first time hiccups with the technology.  He is having a blast along with his colleagues and fans.
I received a letter from my pen pal Debi in Tampa and I did manage to read the whole letter in one sitting.  She is kee…

Sunday Objectives

As i was finishing up feeding the cats this morning I walked into the living room and found what looked like a hairball on the window sill that landed on the floor.  Ick  I don’t know why they have so many hairballs.  There is two more around the house.  Cleaned one up in the office upstairs the other day.
I let them downstairs already.  I actually am not sure if both went or just Sky.  I turned around after finishing cleaning up hairball number 2  and tiger was just sitting there.
My other objectives today would include laundry and church and of course bingo.  I know you are surprised about the church but it's time I go back.
Nothing is wrong but this is proactive.  I feel that when I don’t go to church for a long time my whole center seems off balance and things go wrong.  I want to prevent that from happening.  Considering I am also on the Ladies guild Board now.  I best do it.
I talked with Mama Roberta Friday night for an hour.  She told me about her trip to Colorado and how she …
