A Long Day in a short Week 1/19/2017

I was really hoping today would  be like the last few days in which it flies by.  I had a lot to do today.  Today was my short work day because I had my infusion and Union meeting.

I almost didn’t get my infusion because I wasn’t hydrated enough and she tried like five times to find the vein and it wasn’t cooperating.  We even had a heating blanket.  AFter the fifth time it worked.  My next two infusions are February 15 and March 15th.  Barring any bad weather systems, Insurance hiccups or health.  

Tonight was the ratification of our new contract.  We went over the language of the contract and then around 7 we voted on it and had questions and answer session.  There was someone who was getting feisty and some people too offense to it.  It was voted and passed by the time we left.

I also received news that my cousin RAH has stage 4 Lung Cancer.  ITs inoperable incurable and he is at peace with it.  He doesn’t want visits or calls but cards and emails are fine.  He may have chemo as pain management.

It was some time after 7 when I got home.  I called Mom’s Friend Maureen before going into the house.  Maureen was a classmate of RAH so I wanted her to know.  We ended the conversation with a promise to send her his address and  email.

I have grabbed something to eat, played with the kitties and did some other stuff but not up to doing the cheesecake so I am heading to bed.

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 …
