This Week has been long

I didn’t want to be one of the billion blog entries that start with “TGIF” but this week has been long despite the short work week.   I am fighting the infection, splitting my time between two homes, and several animals.  

The snow didn’t last very long this morning it was pretty much gone by 9 and the sun came out for most of the day.  The temperatures were in the 30’s I think.  We are supposed to get more snow tomorrow.

Work today was pretty good and it was Jeans day. We have been given the opportunity to wear jeans on Fridays as long as we adhere to the new dress code the rest of the week.  There have been some amendments to the dress code such as leggings.   The mail volume is well on its way to back to normal.  I have a new batch of Refunds that have to go out monday at least they are more a week behind.

Actually work was good until I found out one of our co-worker's husband is very ill and isn’t expected to live through the weekend.  He had a stroke earlier in the week and is on life support unfortunately he is not breathing on his own,  They have decided to terminate his life.  I ask that you hold A and her family in your thoughts and prayers tonight.

I was actually able to get home before it got too dark and was able to walk preston before his dinner.  When I got back to the house i fed them both and ate the rest of the sandwich i had gotten earlier in the week.   Relaxed and watched TV.  

Sometime after 6 I came back to my babes who were both waiting in the livingroom.  I was afraid one of them would be in the attic again. In the last hour I keep checking the door and he hasn’t gone near it.  They both of been very vocal but I gave them fresh kibble and I will give them water when I leave.   I actually will have to get more kibble this weekend.  Its also time to clean the litter boxes again.  Something I don’t look forward to. Ugh...TIger was eating a ribbon...I tried to get it away from her but she ran.

Optimum has moved some of their channels around.  For example  Heroes and ICons is now on 140 because the former channel is now all religious channel.  I guess it's the JImmy Swaggart Channel.  It started during the New Year's Weekend.    I won’t get to see Hercules or the other Star Trek’s.  Unless I watch BBC America.

 Cozi TV changed its lineup as well.  No Six Million Dollar Man or the Bionic woman. I don’t know if they moved that to another additional station because the cable system doesn’t have those.

I am excited to add additional days and channels for NCIS.  Yesterday Oxygen added NCIS to its lineup and will air the episodes Thursdays from 6 am to 2 am Friday mornings.  At some point during the day they will repeat the episodes until 2 am.  I am not sure if this makes up for the lack of episodes on USA or that I don’t get Cloo Channel which is the other cable station NCIS is on.  When ever I am over at Nancy’s I never catch it.

Finally, a dear friend of mine sent me a IM regarding FACEBook charging fees for usage of their site.  Its one of the oldest fake news.  I asked her if she was sure.  A friend of her sent it to her.  This woman is a former Alderman in my town.  You would think she would investigate before sending it on.  Nope.  So as as result I posted a message on Facebook.  I have already been challenged on it and they need to get a grip. I had to even do a little research myself.

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 …
