Feeling Accomplished

Despite having the disappointing results from the bake sale yesterday I feel I have accomplished a good deal of work.  The mail was done early.  Still working on the refund checks to be mailed out.  I even cleaned out old emails and old memos (Guardian Angel even encouraged me to to do it).  So I can start fresh very soon.  

I am trying to figure out how to be better organized regarding emails, and alerts  regarding office policies and work procedures that apply to me and all the rest keep a log of it for reference.  I am not sure what else I should keep but I guess that will come in time.

After work I went to my insurance agent to pay for my car insurance.  I think they were waiting for me and that is just really great.  Not only are they my agents  but they are neighbors too.  Actually T grew up on this street before I got here.  He moved to another part of the city after college but came back often for visits with his late parents,  We said goodbye and I took off for LIz’s.

After calling her for the 4th Time (they had been sleeping) I finally got a hold of her and wanted to stop by and chat with her.  She had to go out with her friend Andrea by 5:30 so while she was on the phone I was foraging (her words not mine) and we chatted.  I told her I saw her friend the Taxi driver.  We talked about the cheesecake.  She feels i should put a little more effort into the cake or maybe make something else.  We also talked about Christmas

Tentative plans for Christmas are to have a small and quiet dinner on Christmas Day.  I think she said Adam is having Christmas eve and said they would bring stuff over for the next day.  I thought that meant I would have to order from Dominos.  We then talked about gifts.  All the older kids (Rivera/Morgan) levels not to get anything.  Not really sure what she wants me to do with the younger ones.  I will have to approach her later for that.  I left shortly after her Friend Andrea came.

When I got home I just got on here since then been bopping between doing things here and there.  The kitchen is getting straightened up and the dishwasher is starting to get filled up.  The kitties eventually came down and now are separated.  I am feeling like I should stay up and get things done.  Catch up on letters, get the laundry done.  Get the e-cards done and then probably go to bed late.  I have already had a cup of coffee.

MY original plans for dinner was to have spaghetti but decided to have soup instead.  I still have to update the Calorie counter for the last few days.  I may have to schedule stuff for the week.  

I called Roberta today and we caught up for a short time.  She was going to the movies today and she said the house here maybe sold soon.  ONly time will tell.

I heard from Dave tonight.  He went to see Wicked tonight and went to the same restaurant we did..  He had a better service at the same restaurant.  He said his waiter was nice.  That’s nice

For the last couple of nights I have been getting phone calls from places like Hackensack NJ, but no messages.  I really wish it would stop but I don’t think it will happen anytime soon.  If I don’t recognize the number then I don’t pick up.

I was sad to discover that the Soap world lost another one of its own yesterday.  Joseph Mascolo known to many Days of Our Lives fans and viewers as Stefano Dimira died yesterday at the age of 87 to Alzheimer's related illness.  The last time he was on the show was earlier this year for the death of his character.  Now I wasn’t always a regular viewer of the show.  Over the years I would flip back and forth between its competitors.  Eventually I lost interest in all soaps. So I wasn’t keeping up (or so I thought).  Every now and then I would catch up with their episodes through various outlets most popular was Soapnet.

I also had an opportunity to listen the Fresh Air Program on NPR (from the North Country of NY) and they did a feature on the Late Grant Tinker who died last month.  They had two interviews one with Mr. Tinker and then with Mary Tyler Moore.  What I was surprised at was how much they sounded in sync  with each other about the times they worked together and how they met.

Uh Oh.  I had these grand plans to stay up and work on more of the e-cards and do letters and plan for the weekend.  Now I just want to hit the sack.  I think the kitties would like that very much.  

With my new “goal to be better organized and active I may try and get up in the morning and do things before I get to the sing-a-long.

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…
