Cinco De Mayo Day 2017

Happy Cinco De Mayo Day but is it really for us?  I was just watching a video on the History channel site and it explained it’s to remember the battle of Pueblo.  Where the French were beaten by the Mexican rebels there.  I only covered a little bit of info or trivia here but there is a lot more t know.

Today is my long weekend.  I put the time in at the beginning of the week when I discovered how much time I needed to take or lose.  So I quickly put in for last Wednesday and today.

This week has been very busy and very gratifying all the same time.  Work has been great and Wednesday night was my long term service dinner at Schwartzman hall attached to Woolsey Hall in New Haven.  Jim came up that afternoon to attend with me and we had a great time.  We took Uber to and from the event. 

There was so many people and we were given name tags and a yearbook with everyone who was honored.  Some people were listed with no pictures.  Some of them I have worked with personally and some I have met over the years.  The food was great and the President of the University was there but had vocal cord issues and had to have the provost take over now and then.  Jim really enjoyed my coworkers and the union reps who were there too. 

We were really impressed with Uber and the drivers.  I have to say the fares were a reasonable but $20 at a clip might not be something I need to shell out all the time.  Maybe once in a while.

The weather has been windy for the last few days today its raining and expected to be heavy at times.  That’s okay I am not going far today. I do hope tomorrow is better because I would like to go wash my car.

I actually have the rug cleaning crew coming around 12:30 and I still have stuff to move out of places and not a lot of time to do it.  I am hoping the kitties are both upstairs so that they won’t come down when they arrive or afterwards.

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…
