Man I crashed

After Mike and Roberta got up around 9 they gathered all their belongings and we headed to IHOP for Breakfast.  We were surprised at how busy it was.  Despite or even because it was so busy we managed to get in a little after we got there.  We had placed our orders.  They got the rise and shine breakfast.  When we finished we came back home and they got the last of their stuff and we said goodbye.  It won’t be for long.  They will be back around 5 tomorrow afternoon as we are having dinner with friend’s tomorrow night.  Then on Sunday and then Monday. We meet up again on Wednesday for dinner and then later on in the week as they will be doing a few more things before leaving at the beginning of the following week for home.

I decided to take a shower and then get some laundry started.  It was a bout then I crashed.  I made some calls, surfed the net, and watched TV and then decided to sleep.  The kitties did the same thing in the closet. They eventually came out and I closed it off. 

I did catch up with Liz and we are going to together tomorrow after her meeting.  They went to see N’s Sister upstate.  Something happened and I will eventually find out soon. 

I did call Jim tonight to rsvp to the long term dinner and ask what he wanted and we both said beef.  He was heading out for the evening and so we didn’t get to talk long.

I do have to say I am still reeling at Governor Malloy’s announcement he would not be seeking a third term as governor of Connecticut.  According to the reports I watched earlier there was a mixed reaction to the news.  There is a long list of potential candidates including the Lt Governor Nancy Wyman, There is also Kevin Lembo he is state comptroller, and then George Jepson the state Attorney General.  They are all good people and seem to have worked hard.

I am relieved to know that all those whom I sent Easter cards to received them. Liz loved hers and so did Dave.  Even when I talked with Jim he didn’t acknowledge it.  I am not hurt by that.  Dave tells me via text that he will be joining his aunts and cousins over at the Grassy hill Country club for their annual buffet. 

I just got a message from Roberta letting me know our hostess for Sunday will be calling me to drop off her lamb for storage.  I suspect it will be in the pan as well.  I just hope my refrigerator can hold it.

I am going to go to bed.  I will have a number of things to do tomorrow.

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…
