Veteran's Day 2016

To all those who reading, following this blog and are currently or formerly in the Military I send my thanks to you for dedication of service and to our protection of freedoms.

Many are taking today off.  Some schools have a holiday while others do not.  I am not sure what the rationale is behind that but here at the University we don’t have all the US holidays off.  That’s why we have the ten day recess in December.  So I have been told.  All the parades and services were earlier this week.  

I tried to take  another route to work this morning.  If I continue to take the same route I need to leave at least 15 minutes earlier than I did this morning.  I am tired of being frustrated with 95 (like everyone else is).  Luckily the traffic was lighter than usual but it could have been because of the holiday.

Today was quiet and I had done some mail and personal refunds all in the morning The afternoon consisted of readdress mail, and straightening up .  

Tonight I had spaghetti with wheat pasta very nice.  It didn’t fill me but I had enough that I don’t want anymore tonight.  I was going to make the meatloaf but I need to review the ingredients.  I actually have to get a few more things so i will do it tomorrow.

I have finally been getting a few calls about the auction.  A couple of people wanted to donate stuff and so I just made arrangements to meet someone tomorrow to pick it up and I will have to take to Janet's house but she told me on the phone tonight that after this we can’t accept anymore.  It is very early meet so I will be getting ready for bed soon.  I did actually get a couple of people to want tickets.

Well i am going to have say good night as i am getting tired.  Be well everyone.

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…
