Getting behind again


I have two open entries that I haven’t finished.  I have been trying to get the house ready for the meeting this Friday.  Some things I have managed to get done like the garbage getting to the curb (I couldn’t do it last week because it was securely in the snowbank), managed to do some vacuuming,   There are other things I have put off until Thursday night. (It’s the bathroom-I figured if I do it then the cats are less likely to make a huge mess come Friday) .  I did manage to move the folded clothes upstairs but the rest of the stuff will shove into the one hiding place (yes the washing machine).  The cleaning stuff can go in the stairway to the cellar.  I did make sure I was doing crossword puzzles though.

This past weekend was my Niece’s surprise birthday party and it was huge success.  The only thing was I noticed there were pictures of everyone else who was there but none of me.  I really thought I was over this but I am not as much as I would like.  My youngest grandnephew (great nephew?) did get a picture of me but that was with my sister’s camera. 

Work has been busy.  Lots of refund checks and a couple of procedural changes in the mail dispensation.   We learned a coworker is currently on medical leave and so we are having fundraising to help her out.   There are raffles for theme baskets.  I want to participate but my finances are a little strained right now.  I have known this woman since began in in the department back in the day.

Tonight was the Dinner at the Beth-El Shelter.  It was a huge success.  A variety of international meals and of course lots of dessert.  Again as we have had in the last couple of years a full house.

Tomorrow is my session with Debra.  I am hoping we get to see each other.   We had to have a phone session last week.  It just is the same feel to it.  Then I have last minute things to do or get.

Friday is the District meeting.  As far as I know we have seven people coming and one gust.  They were told to let either Phil or myself know.  This is just a pain in the ass.  I am not planning much in the line of food.  Sharon usually brings something and I have gotten a cake.  I may have to get some chips and dips. 

Mother Nature has been playing tricks on us this week.  Giving us warm weather and sun at the beginning of the week and today winter conditions.  Apparently I missed a snow squall.  I hope it’s a little warmer this weekend.

The baby shower is this Sunday but I am hoping to have Saturday be letter writing day.  I was given a little push by Missy in California last weekend.

Well the kittens are waiting for me to get to bed…so have a good night.

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 …
