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.

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…
