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...:)

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…
