Took Longer than

I have been home Just over 28 hours now and I am glad to be home.  I left just after 10 from Jim’s and then headed to the Highway directly I was supposed to stop for gas before getting on the highway but didn’t until I got to Hellertown PA.  That was 14 miles east of Allentown heading home..  It didn’t take long and I was on my way to my next stop.  Phillipsburg for “brunch”.  I stopped at Perkins and had some pancakes.  I think it may have been sometime near noon when I was on the road again..  I didn’t have any real problems until I almost went the wrong direction I needed to go to Morristown.  I noticed I didn’t have any cars behind me and swung over to the Morristown.  The next issue was around Yonkers.  I somehow missed Hutchinson Pkwy and had to turn around..  At least I know where EMpire City CAsino is..  Then I made my way to the Merritt and headed home.  Unfortunately there were not one but two multiple car accidents within 100 feet from each going both ways.  I was cooling my jets for some time,  I posted a picture of the traffic jam and then called Liz.

Once we past the accident I was on my way to my sister’s.  She had just finished working in the yard.  We spent some time drinking coffee and talking about the holiday with the family.  Just basically talking about stuff.  Then after a few attempts and seeing things in the clouds I headed home.

I had heard from Jim via text wondering if I got home alright.  Once I did get home and get reacquainted with the cats.  I called him and told him of my “adventures”.  Not sure he was thrilled with it. But oh well.

The cats.  They were so damn funny.  Sky was sitting on one of the risers on the staircase and his head in between the poles.  He was trying to get out fast that he got stuck and started mewling.  For the next hour and half he stayed by me and he followed me.  He didn’t like it when I picked him up but he was too funny.  Tiger came down rubbed up against my legs and then went back upstairs until I came upstairs for the night.

I ordered Pizza for dinner and relaxed and vegged out.  I did manage to get my laptop going again and I am really hoping I didn't leave the bad cords with Jim..  Especially after checking to see if I had mixed them up.  

I went to bed and started not feeling well.  I had acid reflux and ended up getting sick to my stomach.  I even had a nose bleed and not sure what that was about.  I eventually went to sleep and the kitties did too.  

This morning was going back to a normal routine.  Sleeping in as much as I could, watching TV, and listening to sky continuous plea to either go downstairs or get my attention.  So I went to him  a few times and cuddled with him and then went back to watching TV or sleeping.  

As the afternoon approached I  got ready for bingo.  I noticed my neighbors returning from their holiday weekend and getting into the normal routine of theirs.  I went to the store, got some cards, went to the coffee shopping and got coffee and a doughnut..  THen it was off to bingo.

Bingo went well we had nearly 20 residents and Bob the recreation member was there.  He was getting residents and had started setting up.  We got caught up on stuff, and played for an hour.  One resident I have known for a while as Mr. H passed away since my last visit.  The hallways are all decorated with the Wreath raffle..  It looks lovely.

After Bingo I called my cousins who just became grandparents before Thanksgiving.  They were not home. So I headed home myself.  I never made it to the grocery store.  By then I was tired. I did stop at the Post office.  

The rest of the night I was watching TV, surfing the net, and grazing.  I got some laundry going and straightened the kitchen and now I think I should go to sleep.

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 …
