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.

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…
