Thankful Thursday

1.         I am thankful for my family warts and all.
2.         I am thankful for my kitties
3.         I am thankful for my job
4.         I am thankful for the Medical profession that keeps me on the road to good health
5.         I am thankful for my neighbors
6.         I am thankful for my home
7.         I am thankful for my friends
8.         I am thankful for the organizations I belong to.
9          I am thankful for the weather.
10.      I am thankful for the men and women who choose to protect and serve their country and their citizens even at the worst possible times.  

Even though I focusing on my work and my life today my thoughts are with My sister and BIL as they make arrangements to go to Florida for funeral.  BIL’s Sister died two nights ago.  The services should be in the next day or two.  As I mentioned earlier Sis says they should be back by Tuesday.

I am also thinking of my Cousin R and his family (step daughter, brothers, nephews) as Cousin R is in final stages of Lung cancer and is what for the inevitable outcome.  I am sorry I didn’t get to see him more often after my mother passed but he hasn’t reached out and neither have I.  

I am super happy with the ratification of our newest contract.  It will begin in a couple of days and will last for 5 years.  As I said earlier we got everything we basically asked for.  Now our jobs are to make sure it is honored. Our raises will be 2.25% for the first two years and then 2.50% the rest.   I don’t think we should have any problems on that level. I might be a little naive about that.

Everything seems good on the health level.  I just need to continue to lose the weight.  Do the things I was asked by the Medical profession and (that includes getting on the CPAP machine).

The kitties are fine..enuf said.

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 …
