Blizzard Stella Arrived...

I got home just before 5.  Don was stocking up on wood for the fireplace in his house.  His wife getting dinner from a local Chinese Restaurant.  We talked about Stella.  We were to arrange the cars in away were he wouldn’t have to navigate between the cars so we parked them further back in the driveway but not too far in case we had to get out.  Don’s plan is to be able to go back and forth so it will be even between them all.  He also told me (which I figured that out while I was at work) he wouldn’t be clearing the snow until late Wednesday or even may be Thursday.  I may have to take a bus that morning.

While I was still outside I talked with Neighbor Chris P and explained the whole “I saw your dog outside while you weren’t home” story.  We also talked about whether or not we will be going in to work on Wednesday.  Everyone on the RR has to from what I am gathering.

Once I got back to the house I moved the car to the spot Don wanted and then I combined garbage cans (one had ice and garbage in it and couldn’t be moved) I took the ice melt and other things inside so they would not be covered (in snow) or blown away by the wind. 

The kitties came down to greet me and watched me go back outside to secure stuff they probably thought I was crazy.  Once I finally got in I gave then kibble and watched TV.  I made some calls, sent text messages and then eventually made dinner.  I also let them down in the cellar but they kept coming back up and then every time I closed it he cried.  After a while they both went upstairs.

I made cooked the burgers I made and froze last week.  They were good but still needed a little more cooking.  Next time I will do it more.  I put a couple of slices of Muenster and 1 extra slice I ate by itself. I had some hot coffee and drank water and then cleaned the kitchen up.

I got to watch a movie that Leonardo DiCaprio made a couple of years after Titanic.  It was the Man in the Iron Mask.  I loved it when I first saw it many years ago and to this day I loved it.  One of the cast mates eventually played a demon from the King Arthur era on Charmed’ 5th season.  Which I thought was pretty good. 

I did throw in the sheets from the bed Livia left me (she did an awesome job again).  That’s why I really didn’t want to leave a trail behind me last night.  I decided to fold them this morning after I fed the cats and had coffee.

I went to bed early because I was tired and I was getting the sniffles.  I had been worried I was getting something when I found myself sneezing a lot yesterday.

So when did Stella arrive?  It must have arrived here around 2.  I noticed it was snowing around 3 and at first it didn’t seem to be a lot but by 10:30 it seemed to be raining or sleeting.  The plow came through early this morning.  It looks like it never came.  I am somewhat disappointed in this storm.  I have been following the reports and everything but I was expecting constant snow.  Wind blowing in Gale force winds and it did for about 5 minutes.

This morning I have been able to go back to sleeping and watching TV and not what I had hoped to do but there is still the rest of the day today and tomorrow.  Of course maybe not.  If we don’t get any more snow and the roads open I may have to take the bus because neighbor Don won’t be plowing until Thursday.

Late this afternoon the Governor lifted the travel ban.  Yep I am going to work tomorrow.  I will be taking the bus. DAMN.

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…
