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.

Moved Slowly

This is a definite slow day.  This morning did our regular routine for a Saturday.  The kitties have been fed, and have been let down into the cellar,  I cleaned out the litter boxes, and went back to sleep with the TV watching me...get the picture?
Peapod arrive just after 9:30.  I didn’t need to see them as Sky was running up the stairs.  The driver pulled into the neighbor’s (Hockey guy’s) driveway.  I asked her not to do it she explained it wouldn’t be for long and she figured it was mine.  I just shrugged my shoulders and resigned myself to the fact she will do it.   Please for the love of all that’s right next time listen to me.  BEsides there was plenty of room in front of the house!  I got every thing that I ordered and put it all away.  Another list is already started for next week.
The weather sites got it wrong again.  One of them said we were supposed to get rain this morning.  It was supposed to start sometime after 8:30.  Need I have to tell you it never came?  The sun fin…

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…

Sunday Objectives

As i was finishing up feeding the cats this morning I walked into the living room and found what looked like a hairball on the window sill that landed on the floor.  Ick  I don’t know why they have so many hairballs.  There is two more around the house.  Cleaned one up in the office upstairs the other day.
I let them downstairs already.  I actually am not sure if both went or just Sky.  I turned around after finishing cleaning up hairball number 2  and tiger was just sitting there.
My other objectives today would include laundry and church and of course bingo.  I know you are surprised about the church but it's time I go back.
Nothing is wrong but this is proactive.  I feel that when I don’t go to church for a long time my whole center seems off balance and things go wrong.  I want to prevent that from happening.  Considering I am also on the Ladies guild Board now.  I best do it.
I talked with Mama Roberta Friday night for an hour.  She told me about her trip to Colorado and how she …
