Thankful Thursday

1.         I am thankful for my family warts and all-Everyone is doing pretty good.  Heard from the Alaskan branch this week.  Big Brother is coming up in early Aug ( really?) for a friend’s Funeral service.  Sis and I are going to a trivia contest in August here in town.  Should be fun.  She is planning and hoping to go to SC to visit Grands.  
2.         I am thankful for my kitties-Kitties have been very cuddly again.  
3.         I am thankful for my job-Things are going okay.  Everyone is settling into their new locations on the floor (or is it office).  We had a very nice training session on Interpersonal relationships in the office last week.  
4.         I am thankful for the Medical profession that keeps me on the road to good health.  I see my Health Coach next week.  I see the Rheumy in about two weeks after a scheduling snafu (mine not theirs).  Others are in September.
5.         I am thankful for my neighbors-It looks like my worst fears are coming to fruition with the new young neighbors in “Maria’s” place.  They left garbage out in the bins and too full where it was being blown all over.  They also haven’t been cleaning up after their dog (front yard is mine field of crap).  Another neighbor contacted the landlord.  Although not sure that’s going to go well.  I am a firm believer you can’t tell your neighbors what they can or can’t do in their home or yard really.
6.         I am thankful for my home-Happy to report my bathtub is no longer clogged but will not let it go there again (putting kitty litter down the drain or even using draino).  The Furnace has its annual cleaning and ready for the upcoming heating season.  
7.         I am thankful for my friends-I heard from Dr. T this week after sending her a newsy email.  She is still unpacking and getting ready for her new job that starts in a matter of days.  Heard from Mama Roberta as well.  She has returned to FL for a visit with friends and family. Not sure when she returns to NC.   
I am looking forward to my next adventure with Siduri in the fall.  We are making tentative plans for Mystic Village in Mystic CT.
8.         I am thankful for the organizations I belong to.  The issue I had with the minutes will be resolved by the next meeting.  I did speak with Chairman Phil the night of the convention and he said he will speak on it.  We have quite a lot of work coming up.
I just received the schedule of activities for the Ladies Guild this week.  We have our first Board meeting at the end of August.  I was surprised we are starting so early when our next meeting is mid September.  I did notice some changes and in early november is our auction and then our holiday party is in mid December.
9          I am thankful for the weather.  The weather hasn’t been so humid for the last few days.  It did go from one extreme to the other quickly which I wasn’t thrilled with.  Been wearing sweatshirts around the house this week.

10.      I am thankful for the men and women who choose to protect and serve their country and their citizens even at the worst possible times.  Enough said!

Ended up

Because I wasn’t feeling well last Thursday night  and the lack of sleep from it I barely did anything Friday.  I did some laundry, cleaned out one of the litter boxes, emptied the dishwasher only to fill it up again. I made myself an early lunch of steak and potato and had yogurt.  I was not anxious to eat too much as my shoulder still hurt. I think the aches and pains are from the amount of cheese I had in the last couple of days.   I fell asleep for the afternoon watching the X Men double feature.   I did fold some of the clothes and sheets and put more laundry in.  You are probably wondering where all these clothes are coming from.  Some of them have been there a few days and needed refreshing. When I didn’t fold the clothes I watched TV.  I actually sat through Hawaii 5-0 haven’t done that in months.  It's a good show.  It has done a few cross overs with the NCIS franchise (mostly the LA show) now there is some discussion prompted by articles that that H50 will do crossovers …

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…
