I heard from my sister and she hopes to bring Nelson home today.  If that’s the case I need to probably keep away and let him resettle in and rest.  I will try and see them maybe during the weekend.  The rest of their family is doing well.

I finally heard from nephew John in Florida via IM.  He is preparing for his reassignment to Alaska.  He and his wife and fur babes are leaving June 10 driving there.  They will be going up through Canada.  I really look forward to reading their adventures.    We really didn’t talk long he was working in his yard.  I will have to send him another message soon.

John’s Sister Diane re-launched her Photography site.  I believe she does head shots for people who need them done for their work.  Yesterday was her Husband’s Birthday.

Rob is working-still not sure if he is still with his girl or not.  Actually I think I am sure he isn’t because there are no pictures of them together and he is always posting he is single.  I definitely don’t want to approach him on it and yet I think I should unfriend his ex because I feel disloyal to him.

My sister in law E is doing well in the Philippines.  It looks like she is still working on her resort and Cocoa farm and is now a motivational speaker.

Brother Jim is doing well by keeping busy.  His kids are doing well.  I think his son Jr is preparing for graduation this year.  God I can’t believe it.  When he came to us he was barely 2 and now he is off to college.  He is also incredibly smart.

The kitties have been really good sports with our friends.  They finally came around near the end of their visit and will probably be receptive when they come back tomorrow night.  One of them must have had a hair ball because I am still working on the spot they yakked on.  They are going to be crazy when I go back to work next week.

I have had a lot of fun with Mama and Papa and have missed them when they are up at their time share.  I did get to see them a few times just this week.  Mama and I had dinner with our club members at Wood and Tap last night and it was fun. 

I am having dinner with my friend D next Friday at a local restaurant.  It is our annual catch up dinner that we have when we haven’t seen or talked with each other in a while.   We still text each other from time to time.  Of course I follow him on Facebook.

I have been really enjoying my vacation these last two weeks but I am really looking forward to going back next week.  I don’t know what I will find when I get there.  I know I will be incredibly busy.

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…
