Early this week I got to spend the Memorial Holiday with My sister and her family.  We had a cookout and some fun.  Caught up with each other and hectic schedules.  I learned some things about some of my nieces and nephews that saddens me because I am very protective of my family.

I also learned that my Nephew J (brother J’s son) didn’t graduate with his classmates at Blair last week but will be graduating next week with one of the local HS in Allentown.  Ironically it was the same HS that both Kris and Emily graduated from a few years back.

My SIL E is in states and has yet to come see me.  I have chatted with her on FB and i understand she has seen my sister.   If you haven’t gathered me not pleased.  I do know my Nephew John and his wife are very close to getting to Fairbanks for his newest assignment.

Work is continuing to be busy. Between the mail and other tasks.  I just had my performance review meeting and it went awesome (today).  The Union activities are slowing down for a little while.  We will be focusing on our local political allies re-election campaign for the upcoming political season.  We also will have some other activities i can’t think of at the moment.  There is an employee appreciation event next week.  I can’t remember if I responded or not.  I may not be able to go because I have so much to do.

I am really looking forward to my trip to FL next week where I will be meeting up with Mama Roberta and we will visit some friends down there.  SHe will be going in on Saturday while I will be flying in Sunday night.

I am meeting up with Dr. T this weekend to do some club business.  I believe we have a meeting next monday (a date change because the girls have exams and last minute things to do for school).  The reality of the club closing is becoming a reality as Dr. T’s house went on the market this week.

Friday is the Awards dinner for the DTC.  It seems there isn’t  a lot of interest in attending this year’s celebration.  Not sure if it the current atmosphere in the political fields with our Federal, state and local legislators.  WE also have a few things that are coming up-again to prepare for the upcoming election.  SHould be very interesting.

I won't be attending the LG Board Meeting next week because it conflicts with the Scholarship presentation  the same night.  My sister gave me a heads up last weekend about being careful as the LG can be less than Christian like.  I reassured her it won’t be bad. I hope.

The weather has been very odd for the last week of May.  It rained for most of it and the temperatures were chilly.  Last night’s Thunder and lightening storm was loud and long for many and it woke me up last night.  Today started off cool and foggy.  By the time I got home sun was shining and it was warm.  

That’s about it for now...:)

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 …
