Independence Day 2017

Good Morning and Happy 4th of July to all who celebrate!  To our Military members I send continuous thanks for all that you continue to have done to  protect us.

Today will be a quiet day for me I think.  It will be spent working on laundry, and probably pen pal letters and notes to family and friends.

Last night would have been quiet if not for the 4th of July Eve celebrations going on.  It wasn’t an issue but it made me think of a discussion on one of the “Milford” FB boards that a woman was droning about the illegal fireworks being shot off in her neighborhood. She had been told to “get over it” multiple times.

I had a nice dinner.  It wasn’t the seafood dinner I was planning but instead an outback dinner.  I got one of their steak specials 9 in steak delicious with two sides.  Broccoli (had to make it semi healthy), baked potato and a bloomin onion.  It took me a while to finish the bloomin onion and realized why i don’t get that very often anymore.  It was as expected a tad greasy.  I was afraid it would cause me grief but so far nothing.

I talked with Liz via the phone last night.  She had just been spending the last couple of days with the grand kids and they went home a short while earlier.  She was returning my call from a day and half ago about the woman we knew from years ago.  She seemed uneasy that I was friended with the woman who told me about the mutual friend.  

I chatted with her via IM this morning about my phone.  She suggested I turn it completely off.  She also was telling me how she was spending today.  They decided not to go to Cheryls for their July 4 picnic.  

I heard from Jim this morning.  He was responding to my “phone wigging out on me”.  He suggested it was time for a new phone..technically this was a new phone.  I don’t want to spend more money.  He tells me he is going to the gym and perhaps to a picnic.

My lawn guy came to do the lawn and dropped off last month’s bill.  It wasn’t too bad but I paid it immediately.   I was thinking I need to set up a file for him.  I don’t usually keep the bills.

The rest of the day not much....

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…

Busy Friday

I spent a couple of hours working on mail and sending out refunds for the afternoon mailing.  By the end of the morning I spent it working on scanning until the end of  the day.  I  don’t feel I got a lot done but I did have some problems with a couple of the batches.
I did make an appointment with Courtney the health coach for next week.  I was beginning to think I missed an appointment but when I checked with her I found that I hadn’t.  It will be on Wednesday at 4:30.
I wasn’t sure I could eat anything chewy yet so I had broccoli and cheese soup for lunch.  It was good and I did chew on the left side of the mouth with no problem but as usual I probably used both sides.  I had been drinking lots of water at least I tried.  I had some coffee.
It was also refrigerator cleaning day at work.  I had forgotten and manage to lose a new coffee creamer that I put in there from Thursday next time that happens I am bringing in a cooler  so I don’t waste three dollars.  It's already on the nex…

Jeans Day

This is becoming my favorite day of the week.  It's the day we can wear jeans to work.  It is a day to be comfortable but still be functionable and get work done.  Today it may have been a little too comfortable as I found my falling asleep a number of times at my desk.  Today was a little bit of mail and the rest of the day was scanning.  It went pretty well with a few glitches.  I have put in my time for my appointments for July.  I have taken all of Wednesday off and that will be explained in a moment.
I went to the food court outside the hospital for lunch and got some chinese food.  It was pretty good.  THere was a concert in the courtyard next door.  It was great listening to the music.  It has been a long time since I saw those there.
I have to admit I am still not feeling completely well.  I had my dental checkup yesterday and it looks like i am having a root canal done next wednesday..  It hadn’t been hurting for the last few days until they began to poke and prod it.  Hone…
