May Day 2017

Today is the first day of May and it is also called May Day.  It is a day in which we remember over 200 hundred years ago when Labor Workers fought to have eight hour work days and all that they had to go through  to get these goals met.  Not unlike Local 33 who are continuing their Fasting to slow campaign to get negotiations started.  We have several events we are going to participate this coming week.  I am not sure I will be able to get to them all especially the lunchtime ones.

Today was an early day I got to work about 20 of 8 and worked on the mail for most of the day and readdress mail while waiting for the rest to come.  Near the end of the day mailed some refunds. 

I was disappointed to find out that supervisor B would not be attending the dinner Wednesday night.  I was asking where he was planning on parking and that’s when he told me it wouldn’t be able to go.  I was really hoping to introduce him to Jim that night.  Now I don’t know if SR or anyone else is going but if SR is I just hope Jim and she don’t get into some stupid debate.  I seem to remember a discussion they had at Mom’s wake and that was almost three years ago.

It was pretty overcast for most of the day until I got home from work.  It was definitely warmer so I opened the windows and most of them are still opened.  I turned the heat down again before opening the windows. 

I am really getting discouraged with this whole watering the lawn.  I have the type of sprinkler that is called an impulse sprinkler.  Well every time I get it going I have to keep adjusting it.  It either misses the area completely or it floods the spot, or I am watering the damn walls of the house.  Better yet the minute I adjust it I get soaked.

I just got word that James Jr will be attending American University for Political Science.  He posted it to FB tonight.  I am looking forward to hearing Jim’s thoughts on it.  I was looking at the website for the school so much to look over.

Well I better get to bed I am tired and not feeling great.  Knee has been bothering me for a day or two now.  I have also been feeling light headed.

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…
