Way behind

For some reason i feel like I am way behind in my journaling.  I still haven’t finished Wednesday’s midweek reflection nor have I done my Thankful Thursday posts.  Unfortunately by the time I have gotten home this week I am heading to bed early because I have had a fairly long week (or so it would seem).  I had a couple of meetings this week (all last night).  

Of course something happened this week that disappointed me immensely.  Tuesday afternoon after a few text messages my brother was abrupt and asked us not to include him in personal conversations.  This was my way of keeping my two siblings in touch if they were not doing it themselves.  It had some modicum of success until my brother opened his stupid mouth.

I am a bit behind in my pen pal writing but I usually leave that for weekends or vacations.  Even that may be stretching because Saturday I have my hair appointment and later on I am meeting up with my club to do an environmental project and have pizza.  

I do know one thing... having the pork roast may have been a mistake.  My knee and shoulders have been hurting lately.  I usually  can tell I have had too much salt and even with a small pork roast and the other things I had this week that had little or no salt it’s still affecting me.  I have been taking the medicine but it really hurts at night.  Talked about it with Sis.

I also told her about the house insurance bill that is coming and that sprung into looking over the checkbook.  I told her that Insurance Agent Tom was looking into it.  So guess what I am doing tonight?  Filling in the Checkbook Register.

Work is going well.  I got my FMLA extension notification via email yesterday which is a relief.  It is extended until July 7 2017.  That means that I should start to prepare for it again in June (before I take off for vacation).

We have an area union Caucus next Tuesday from 12-2.  We get booklets that go in depth (at least I think it does) regarding the contract.  IT will also be a question and answer session and my hope is that no one objects to the tweaks that I learned about last week.

Two of TV’s icons have passed away this week.  Mary Tyler Moore died a couple of days ago to complications of Diabetes?  This afternoon found out Mike Connors of Mannix fame passed away at the age of 91 of Leukemia
For those of us who have Optimum Cable we still don’t have any CBS stations or cable stations as they have yet come to a reasonable agreement over fees and what not.  As a result for week two I had to watch NCIS on the computer.  This week’s episode was very well received  in many venues.  

Got good news last night.  The DTC raised $1250 for the scholarship in Mom’s name.  So at Graduation time 4 students will be getting a good scholarship.  I don’t remember what we gave last year.

The kitties are good.  I think Tiger fell out of the spring mattress last night (something must have given out) she is fine.

Wow it got cold fast

It dropped at least 10 degrees in a day or so.Yesterday I was being blown down the street while walking and today I have bundled up more.I heard we may get snow flurries tonight.Just as we are expecting the snow flurries the CPTV is rebroadcasting the documentary Blizzard of 78.
I had a good session with Debra.Talked about the events of the last couple of weeks and she is confident that I will be smart about the “Meetups”.She also recommended to not discuss it with Sis.We will meet next week regular time.
I did talk to Liz via text after I had received an invitation to my Niece’s baby sprinkle.(That’s what they are calling it cute huh?)Tentative plans are to go together.It will be later on this month.A week after Cheryl’s party.I am thinking it’s time for another outfit.I need to make time to get a gift for both parties.
I can say with relief that my traffic ticket I got last week was paid in full.They got it within the last couple of days.Bills are paid.
Work was fine we had a staff meet…

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 …
