I knew it

I knew I was going to get sick for recess.  I have  been coughing and sneezing a lot lately and now I feel blah (aka crappy and anything else that matches).  I promised Liz via text I was going to call the dr. at some point and schedule an appointment.  I took some Claritin this morning and had honey and lemon with Earl Grey Tea last night and took some more Robitussin now.  I am not doing much of anything else.

I also knew when I heard something being pushed that I would find both SKy and tiger in the attic-again.  That’s where they were when I left Monday  morning and where they were when i got home from the Dr. later that night.  I tried to bribe them but they just stayed in their spot by the deteriorating insulation.  They came down when I came from Dinner at Liz’s house tonight and both are sitting on the bed with me. Sky resigned himself to the foot of the bed after he discovered there was more than a bench in front of the door.  Tiger is sitting at my side and looks to get a scratch now and then.  I am going to see if my Nephew Mike will put some sliding lock on it.

Yesterday was a pretty good day.  I managed to go through some old papers and get rid of them and I did some chores that have been bothering me.  The rest can be done tomorrow when Livia comes to clean the house.  She contacted me yesterday and said she wanted tomorrow off.  What was I going to say? So she will be here sometime tomorrow morning.

I got to see Neighbor Sylvia for the first time since her pup pup died.  She is having a hard time for the holidays but  she also wrenched her back out recently.  She is also continuing to make pack for the day she sells the house.  

Bingo went well for the most part.  We had 18 residents and two started fighting when one of them plopped themselves in a spot for someone else.  A war of words erupted and I had to speak to at least one of them one they called the other an asshole.  I told Bob about it when we finished. There were two girls that came from the high school both Seniors and they did pretty well.  They helped with the patient transport with Bob and then I chatted with them before the left.  I let them know I wasn’t going to be doing bingo on Christmas Day or New Years Day.

AFter bingo I headed to the mall to do some christmas shopping.  I didn’t have much time as i was having dinner with Liz and her family to Celebrate Rs birthday.  I headed to TArget and spent about 45 minutes shopping for very little but spending nearly $260 dollars on Gift cards and some children's stuff.  Made note to myself to try Toys are us sometime this week.

I don’t remember what time exactly I got home but on the way home I had a phone conversation with my friend Nancy about taking care of Preston and Vlad and I told her I could be at the house by Noon the day her husband is leaving and she liked that one as well.  

It is sad I don’t remember what I did before getting ready for bed.  I know that the second movie in the Narnia Trio was playing and I watched part of it as the kitties cuddled on the bed.

On Monday WE presented our supervisor with his Christmas gift .  He thanked everyone and told us that we did very good work this year clearing a huge Credit Balance project.  He left early for the day and I also left a few minutes after.

The Cardiologist isn’t going to sign my fmla papers so I have to send them to the Lupus doctor.    I will have to drop them off on Friday some time.  IF that’s the case I can do more shopping if needed.  Anyway Cardiologist wants me to get some form of exercise.  Swimming, cardio elliptical.  He doesn’t want to have to put me on high blood pressure meds and that will be the case if I don’t lose the weight. I will see him in June.

Monday night my cousin Bill came into town and stopped at Liz’s for the halfway point and so we had dinner together.  Bill’s brother came over for a visit as well so we had a couple of hours of family joking, talking and education.  You may be wondering why Bill didn’t go to his Brother’s and I don’t have an answer for that one either.

I still have much to do for Christmas and that’s what I will be doing tonight I think.

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 …
