The snow came as predicted

Well it seems the weather people are getting it right this time.  They predicted the snow would start at 7 and I just started noticing flakes about 10 after the hour.  It is supposed to snow all morning until about 1 and then be a wintery mix of rain and snow aka sleet.  I don’t know why they wouldn’t call it that.

There was some question about going to the lunch in Fairfield because of the weather..  This was the alternate plan since the party was cancelled.  Liz called late yesterday afternoon after her nap.  Apparently Niece’s family backed out completely from any of the activities because they would have to come down from New Britain.  They have the Winter Storm Warning for that area.

After a round of text messages of uncertainty it was decided that we would try it.  It was snowing pretty hard and getting deeper. I met up with them at their house and we left a little after 11 and got there sometime after 11:30.  We watched a movie and then eventually ate.  It was fun despite some conversations I had with Sis that I wasn’t happy with.  I told her I signed up with Meetup site and I am attending the first meetup.  She was asking all these really (admittedly) good questions but also warning me that it could be dangerous.  When I interrupted she asked me to let her finish.  You aren’t my MOTHER!  I told her that Mama R and Sister M have done meet ups.  She seemed pissed at me for the rest of the day.  She even criticized me for being hyper.  Then don’t invite me to come to your family functions if you are going to tell me how to eat or speak.    BIL tried to give her signals.  I thanked him later.  We did have a hard time getting out of their street but eventually came back to Milford and by then it was just raining and sleeting.

I was hoping that we didn’t have to go to the Ansonia Nursing Home this afternoon when it was worse.  Before I started getting ready I called Dr. T and spoke with her about it and she gathered I wasn’t going to come after I told her that we were heading to the party.  She just said watch for the emails.  But she said she would go herself if no one else did.  As it is I didn’t get home until maybe three.

I read a blog entry from Maine.  This particular blogger talked about the last storm that they had (probably the one on Thursday) and I loved reading about it.  I also enjoyed the hiker’s guide to Bangor Maine.  They will be on my bucket list especially the restaurants.

I got a 4th District Meeting reminder for Friday.  I am glad it’s on Friday because I am going to that Meet-up in Devon on Thursday.  We probably will talk more about the activism goals we have as well as getting candidates to come forward for the upcoming local elections.

Since I have been home watched TV played with the kitties who are waiting for me now, and had dinner and did some more laundry.  I also did some web browsing.

What did I see you ask?  Well I wanted to see the reviews of Meetup and the first site I came across was Site Jabber and I really hope I won’t be sorry.  You can see for yourselves and tell me if I should not even attend these things I have signed up for.

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…
