I had a nice group discussion upon my return from Allentown this week with most if not all of the nieces and nephews.  Actually it was most if not all of the cousins chatting it up.  Obviously they keep in touch via other ways.

I spoke to my cousin Andy earlier this week.  It was great to talk with him.  He has has Sciatica for the last few weeks and i don’t think he has been at work at all.  His wife keeps busy with church organizations.  They were going out to a potluck dinner that night without him.  I tried to update him on things going on in Milford and he was keeping me posted about his brother’s and sister’s moving into a home together.

The rally seemed to be a huge success last night.  Some mixed reviews on it and I let my fellow committee members know.   There is a negotiation meeting asked for by MGT for this weekend and I am told it is rare for that to happen so maybe the end is closer than we imagine.

Still playing catch up with the work.  I don’t feel stressed out about it.  I hope to have it back to normal by the beginning of next week.  I have a feeling the next three weeks are going to be hectic.  Our recess is from December 23 to January 2.

I may have mentioned we got some rain in the last two days but still not enough to get us out of the drought yet.  It was sunny and fairly warm today.  It will be much colder by the weekend.

The kitties are fine.  They have been very cuddly at night and just as I am leaving the house for the day.  There hasn’t been any gastro issues with either of them.  I do keep wondering why I bother to clean up around the litterbox as they seem to throw the litter out of it.

I see Debra this evening and then its home to finish laundry and head to bed.

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…
