The Last Mid Week Reflection of 2016

Looking at the title of this entry it's awfully long but at 12:30 in the morning I couldn’t think of anything better.  I don’t know how long i will remain awake as I took the meds that should put me into a deep sleep to get rid of this sinus infection.  

I spent the last two days writing about the Christmas Holiday.  Some things I didn’t mention because they didn’t seem as important and I didn’t want to forget anything that meant more to me.

Some of the things i didn’t mention was the kitties.  I finally resolved the issue of kitties getting into the attic.  I put a straight back chair from the dining room set under the doorknob and he can’t open it.  I had to rearrange the furniture and it seems to be working just fine.  I was quite pleased with myself and hopefully he won’t be finding ways to get around it.  I was pleased they both listened to me when I would shoo them away ( from the door) or called them from the door.  They have been sleeping on the bed most of the last two days.

I had so much planned to do each day and really haven’t done much of it.  I did a lot of sleeping because I didn’t sleep well during the previous nights.  I don’t expect to be sleeping anytime soon either.  I did get the bathroom cleaned up a bit more and need to do it again later today.

I heard from My sister via text yesterday and she did end up getting a cold.  A part of me is feeling guilty because I made her hug me earlier in the week but quite honestly most of the Christmas eve dinner guests and hosts were all at some level of ailments.  We had planned on going to the movies yesterday but now probably will have to do it later on in the week.

I also heard from my brother who tells us that he had a health scare before Christmas.  He had gone to the ER with chest pains.  He said they did a full range of tests to discover that the heart was fine and figured he over exerted himself and caused the chest muscle to be pulled.  The next thing he tells us that they are concerned with the elevated BP gave him more BP meds and also diagnosed “a deteriorating Kidney function” due mostly likely to BP meds.  He will have a follow up next week sometime.  This is also a concern since it’s what Dad had before dying.  This is scaring me to no end.  I think he could have mentioned it when we spoke on Christmas Day but I think he didn’t want to spoil our day.  I am not sure it would do any good to let him know I have the issue as well (the BP issue).  I have a feeling it would only make him more worried about me than he already is.

I got a census bureau request so I have to take that sometime soon.  I can do it online apparently.  Not sure when the deadline is.  

Today I have two appointments the pulmonologist and my dentist.  I have them scheduled pretty close together as I don’t expect the first one to be too long its just the waiting part that will throw it off.  I can’t miss the dentist it's the final one of 2016 and i have already rescheduled it twice before this.

The weather has been very interesting.  We have had rain and fog in the mornings and sun in the afternoon.  It went up to 60 degrees yesterday it was beautiful.  We are supposed to get a touch of a Nor'easter tomorrow.  Which means nothing to me really.  Some snow showers and rain.  Temps are going to be in the 40’s.

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…
