Back to Reality

I have been back to work two days now and have been very busy.  Guardian Angel did a pretty good job while I was away.  Just that now I got everything that she wasn’t able to get done.  She won’t be here the rest of the week so SuperBob wants me to focus on the mail.  That includes the readdress mail that is collecting under my desk.  As it is Wednesday is a half day for me.  The rest of the week will fly by.
We did get some news this week that RIS (also known as the Reimbursement department) is being restructure.  Two were laid off, the other ten will either come back into the bargaining unit (which gives them protection) or stay as they are.  Some will be moved into the current teams on AR.  They were doing double work that some of the follow up teams were doing.  It goes into effect July 10.  This doesn’t affect my job that I know of.
On Friday we will be having a Wedding shower for a co worker Lisa as she is getting married next month.  I gave my contribution and this should be fun.  I am not sure what the “gift will be but I am pretty sure the cake will be from the dining hall (and they make awesome cakes)
The weather is absolutely beautiful.  Yesterday started out beautiful and then turned into a thunder and lightening storm well until 8 or 9.  It startled the kitties a few times which surprised me.  It was a bit overcast this morning but mid morning it was gone and then sun came out and stayed out.  It's been warm for me.  I am not sure if it is because of the bug I have.
I went to the cardiologist yesterday for a follow up and for all intensive purposes the heart is fine but he would like it if 1) I would lose the weight and 2) because I have swelling in the legs (ankles mostly) to elevate them during the day and or wear the compression stockings (shaking head vehemently).  I saw the aggravation that Debbie had all week and that’s not something I want to go through.  I see him in December.  Let’s see if I can at least lose the weight.
AFter work I dropped my money off for the ticket for the Ladies Guild installation that is being held on Thursday this week at the Yacht Club in town.  Suzanne reminded me about the dinner and asked if I had gotten the ticket.  Ah no...I have busy.  So she said she would get Janet to leave a ticket for me.  I know how these dinners work. So I went to Janet's house and dropped the money off.
Other than that I have been taking it slow.  Did some laundry.   I even paid some bills last night which works pretty well as a couple of them cime due soon.  Been trying to get to bed early because I am still fighting a sore throat and a few sneezes and coughing.  I got some cough drops this afternoon.
I will be writing my adventures in Florida by the end of the  weekend.  Sadly it includes an update on cousin RAH. We are still on a death watch for him.  We have been told no more visitors will be able to come.  He is confused and in a little bit of pain
Just had a 30 minute phone session with Debra.  We talked about work, my vacation, family news, and health.  She thinks things are good with me right now.  Knock on wood I would have to say they are.  We will have a phone session as i have a scheduling conflict next thursday.  Then we won’t see each other until August.  We will be keeping in contact with emails and a couple of phone sessions.  
Finally to anyone who may have family members, friends, and or colleagues on the USS Fitzgerald you have my deepest sympathy and prayers at this very sad time.  I have been told that one of the sailors is from upstate Connecticut.

Wow it got cold fast

It dropped at least 10 degrees in a day or so.Yesterday I was being blown down the street while walking and today I have bundled up more.I heard we may get snow flurries tonight.Just as we are expecting the snow flurries the CPTV is rebroadcasting the documentary Blizzard of 78.
I had a good session with Debra.Talked about the events of the last couple of weeks and she is confident that I will be smart about the “Meetups”.She also recommended to not discuss it with Sis.We will meet next week regular time.
I did talk to Liz via text after I had received an invitation to my Niece’s baby sprinkle.(That’s what they are calling it cute huh?)Tentative plans are to go together.It will be later on this month.A week after Cheryl’s party.I am thinking it’s time for another outfit.I need to make time to get a gift for both parties.
I can say with relief that my traffic ticket I got last week was paid in full.They got it within the last couple of days.Bills are paid.
Work was fine we had a staff meet…

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 …
