Cheryl's Party


The Surprise party was a huge success (although she admitted as the hours passed she kind of knew something was being planned). Only a handful of people dressed up (mostly sibs, and kids, and of course my sister and Bil).  The party was to start at 2 but Sis thought it was at 1.  A fact I mentioned when I arrived at her house today.  There was plenty of food.  Appetizers included cheese and crackers, stuffed breads, veggie platter with dipping sauce, bruschetta, and pizza.  The buffet had everything as well, pasta, eggplant rollattini, chicken piccata, roasted potatoes, and steamed vegetables and salad and the bread.   I showed some restraint and didn’t have EVERYTHING and still it was good but I didn’t have dinner when I came home. 

There was some dancing to the 80’s music as well.  I did get up there but grew tired and breathless, and sweaty in a very short time.  Evidently I need to still work on my energy level and physique.  It might explain my being tired by 5.  The party broke up around 5 and we were back in town by 6 and I was home a short time later.

I haven’t done much since I got home.  I folded some clothes, cleaned out the sink, watched TV (there doesn’t seem to be much on except for sports and few movies I have seen already).  I will be sending the dishwasher through as soon as I finish my tea.

The kitties were waiting for me by the door when I arrived.  I let them go downstairs a few times and I think Tiger headed upstairs already.  Sky is back and forth and meows like crazy.  I have already gave them kibble before I left so I am not giving them any more until tomorrow.

While I was getting some cash at Walgreen’s I had the opportunity to call Mama Roberta today.  I wanted to tell her that the family who moved into their old house took down a tree that was in the yard.  I told her about JCP closing (which I had a feeling she knew from reading it on Patch) and just as she was telling me about the decapitation that happened in her development we got disconnected.  I was furious that the phone was acting wonky and I couldn’t get the phone back.  By then it was time to get to Liz’s.  While they were getting ready I called her back.  We agreed to call later tonight but now I am too tired.  I did send her an email that I found the alert regarding the decapitation.  I am going to read it again tomorrow.

This week will be active.  The beginning of the week I will be working on the checks, mail, and adding the newest task to my kitty.  I have a local 34 committee meeting on Tuesday.  Nothing else that I can think of for the office. 

Wednesday night I have to be at the Beth El Shelter for the dinner we are serving to the people there.  I have already put a few of the refreshments in a box for me to carry and still have to put the rest in another box.  I am so glad I kept some of the boxes from my deliveries this week.

I have a couple of meetings later on in the week.  In between all that I am going to have to find time to straighten the house.  My Dining room table is cluttered and the bathroom needs to be cleaned.  I can see the vacuuming needs to be done in the living room.  I have to make sure I get the cake out in time to defrost.  I need plates for it.  I have enough plastic cups (I am sure my chairman will have water or soda).

Before I say good night.  I just want to say thank you to all of you who have come to visit and liked my blogs.  I hope you enjoyed what you have read and I hope you come back soon.

Ended up

Because I wasn’t feeling well last Thursday night  and the lack of sleep from it I barely did anything Friday.  I did some laundry, cleaned out one of the litter boxes, emptied the dishwasher only to fill it up again. I made myself an early lunch of steak and potato and had yogurt.  I was not anxious to eat too much as my shoulder still hurt. I think the aches and pains are from the amount of cheese I had in the last couple of days.   I fell asleep for the afternoon watching the X Men double feature.   I did fold some of the clothes and sheets and put more laundry in.  You are probably wondering where all these clothes are coming from.  Some of them have been there a few days and needed refreshing. When I didn’t fold the clothes I watched TV.  I actually sat through Hawaii 5-0 haven’t done that in months.  It's a good show.  It has done a few cross overs with the NCIS franchise (mostly the LA show) now there is some discussion prompted by articles that that H50 will do crossovers …

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…

Busy Friday

I spent a couple of hours working on mail and sending out refunds for the afternoon mailing.  By the end of the morning I spent it working on scanning until the end of  the day.  I  don’t feel I got a lot done but I did have some problems with a couple of the batches.
I did make an appointment with Courtney the health coach for next week.  I was beginning to think I missed an appointment but when I checked with her I found that I hadn’t.  It will be on Wednesday at 4:30.
I wasn’t sure I could eat anything chewy yet so I had broccoli and cheese soup for lunch.  It was good and I did chew on the left side of the mouth with no problem but as usual I probably used both sides.  I had been drinking lots of water at least I tried.  I had some coffee.
It was also refrigerator cleaning day at work.  I had forgotten and manage to lose a new coffee creamer that I put in there from Thursday next time that happens I am bringing in a cooler  so I don’t waste three dollars.  It's already on the nex…
