Sorry I disappeared

As I expected this past week has been busy. My days have started early and kept on being busy with work, and a few appointments and a rally to support local 33.  Almost every night I have come home exhausted.

Work was great.  I had some mail to catch up on and of course doing the full mail job (and not have Gargoyle help or take over).  Don’t think we will be getting LB’s assistance in doing the mail whenever I am out.  She hated it.  She made sure everyone knew it.  I was also given additional task.   It’s scanning again.  I haven’t done it in a while.  I was told at the beginning of the week and by mid-week I was being trained and worked on it.   SR reminded me to let them know if it gets to be too much (between the refunds, mail, and scanning) I told her it hasn’t affected me yet and that I would.  Although I have already had a few things given to my friend to do.

There was a “Town Hall Meeting” for Yale Medicine last week.  It basically covered the big “move”, budget, and other stuff that’s coming down the pike.  I watched it from my computer at my desk.  The Move won’t be happening until sometime in June and the location still a mystery.  The budget I didn’t quite understand it but then again as someone says I don’t have to.  The one thing is as whole we are growing which means more people and more “everything”.

With Bob the supervisors help we figured out how much time I need to take before I lose it.  So as of right now I am taking this Wednesday afternoon off for my dinner that night.  I have put in for a long weekend next weekend.

I also attended the rally in support of Local 33 earlier this week.  Negotiations have not gone well and some of the members are holding a fast (not a hunger strike) to bring awareness to the conditions the Grad Students have had to deal with in their times here.  I know they need to face some challenges but not the kind of stuff that I heard that night.  To generalize they are privileged is wrong just like any other generalization in today’s society.  It was a rainy day that day too.  I did get to catch up “quickly” with Siduri.  I just got a couple more updates from the ‘fasting’.   

I had a few Doctor’s appointments this past week and some had been cancelled.  I was supposed to see Courtney the health coach unfortunately she went home sick so I was sitting in the waiting room for nearly 30 minutes.  It was the same night as the rally.

On Wednesday I saw the Pulmonary doctor and he was quite pleased to tell me that everything looked good.  The CT-Scan I took back in December and it was normal.  He knows I don’t use the CPAP regularly. I don’t know what that will mean in the future.  I will see him in October.

Thursday I met with Debra.  It was a session that focused on my vacation, work, and family stuff.  I believe we get to see each next week.  We won’t be meeting the next Thursday as I have a dinner that night.

I didn’t go out Thursday night for any other meetings.  I went to bed instead.  I will have a lot to catch up on next month.

On Friday I had dinner with Dave we had couple of hours of catching up on each other’s lives. 

The woman’s club Fashion show went off with only a few hitches (the rooms the models were going to use had changed and the elevator was fairly slow.  It went off okay.

Now I am going off to bed so that I can start the upcoming week fully rested…

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 …
