I really had a great time with Liz last Sunday while we went out to dinner and the theater with her friends and of course daughter and daughter in law.  It made for a long night but I enjoyed it.  

I had an opportunity to hear from cousins i hadn’t really talked with in awhile.  I had sent out the e-cards for the Christmas.  I wasn’t sure they would appreciate the type of cards.  My hope is to one day visit them all.

The kitties have been very cuddly at night and they have snuggled most nights.  As I am writing this they have been running up and down as though they are chasing something.  I am afraid to look sometimes.  I do need to pick up more canned food and litter this week as they are both running out.  

The house is in great shape again.  I am going to try really hard to keep it up.  I know I say that but it feels like i am accomplishing something if I keep it neater or cleaner.  Even with the kitties.

I have to say I am glad there hasn’t been any really bad snow storms but I am looking forward to them this year.  Most of what we had in my purview has been disappointments.  

Work seems to be getting back to some normality after the holiday volume wise.  As i mentioned yesterday got a large batch of refund checks that need to get out.  I hope to get them done before the weekend gets here friday.  
Negotiations continue things are moving but not exactly where we would like them (at least in the med school) the sticking points is still the healthcare, and one other item.

On more than one occasion I have heard the move referenced.  I have a feeling Admin wants a lot of things cleaned up AR wise by the time we have to move in one year.  That may not make any sense to some but I get that feeling.

Things are quiet on the DTC front for now.  There is a holiday party at Stonebridge next Tuesday the same night I have the Ladies Guild so I won’t be going to that one.  I am pretty sure the next big events will be preparing for the State elections (Governor) and I am hoping we pick a good candidate.  Then as the new year progresses we will prepare for our Awards Banquet and the Scholarship.

I just received the Woman’s Club newsletter from Dr. T yesterday.  It has all the activities that we will be doing up to and including the beginning of  June 2017.  We have our Sing-A-Long this weekend and then our holiday party on Monday.  I will be bringing the cheesecake.  Next week will be the gift Delivery.

This coming Tuesday is the final Ladies guild meeting for 2016,  It is a holiday party and it will be Pot luck.  I don’t know if we are doing gifts or not as it wasn’t told to me.  We will not be having meeting in January or February as they take it off for cold weather.  Our first meeting of 2017 will be in March.

Wow it got cold fast

It dropped at least 10 degrees in a day or so.Yesterday I was being blown down the street while walking and today I have bundled up more.I heard we may get snow flurries tonight.Just as we are expecting the snow flurries the CPTV is rebroadcasting the documentary Blizzard of 78.
I had a good session with Debra.Talked about the events of the last couple of weeks and she is confident that I will be smart about the “Meetups”.She also recommended to not discuss it with Sis.We will meet next week regular time.
I did talk to Liz via text after I had received an invitation to my Niece’s baby sprinkle.(That’s what they are calling it cute huh?)Tentative plans are to go together.It will be later on this month.A week after Cheryl’s party.I am thinking it’s time for another outfit.I need to make time to get a gift for both parties.
I can say with relief that my traffic ticket I got last week was paid in full.They got it within the last couple of days.Bills are paid.
Work was fine we had a staff meet…

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 …
