I Love Thursdays!  It reminds me that I need to take stock of my life.  It’s been pretty good week this week if not busy.

My sister made arrangements for an exterminator to come today and get rid of the ugly critters (no not my babies) and I am hoping I won’t have to deal with them for the rest of the season.  I saw one last night by the back door and that’s it.   She is also arranging for friends to pick up Mama Roberta’s furniture now it may be Friday.  Fingers crossed for success.

My brother J will be coming up for the weekend for a visit.  He has friends he wants to catch up with that live in town and he wants to get together with us for lunch on Saturday.  He also is coming up for the Senior Awards programs later in May and June so that we can present the DTC Scholarship in my Mother’s name.  He did whine about the length of time each one is.  I may have had to promise him we could leave after our presentation but it all depends on where we are in the program.

My SIL E came by last week for a brief visit.  She had been in the Philippines until recently and was catching up with family and had a seminar later this month to attend.  She dropped a huge bombshell on me though.  She is planning on retiring to her home land.  She is planning on growing Cocoa and building a resort.  She is not happy with her life here (she says she is bored with life here).  My only objection is if you had all this money to build a resort how come she didn’t use it to pay for the bills she accrued over the years with my brother or even enough to have helped out with Mom’s funeral?  My other fear is we will never see her again.  As it is we haven’t been keeping in touch much since Bob or Mom died.

I am awaiting to get Roberta’s furniture and she just alerted me about the airfare to NC in July.  I will get it tomorrow.  If still available.  We had a great time last week when we went to dinner with our fellow club members.  They are getting ready for a two week vacation out west before they move.  It’s going to be tough now.

I am so relieved that I was able to get my neighbors to watch the kitties while I am down in North Carolina.  They will be able to come in the morning and feed the kitties and take care of the litterbox.  They can also look after the house if something comes up.

Work is going on like clockwork.  The contract negotiations are continuing throughout the campus.  We had an FYI meeting with the Admin in the Med School keeping us posted on the recent and current budget cuts made at the state level and how they affect us.  Lots of questions but not a lot of answers.  We have a rally the first week of May. 

I went to the pulmonary specialist and he says I am doing well.  He will see me again in August.  I see the Lupus Doctor this morning.  I am not sure what to expect for that one.  She does have my parking tag application (I hope).  I see Debra this afternoon.  I didn’t get to see her last week.

Tonight I have the DTC 4th District meeting at home.  I am going to have to stop and get a few things and some of my other members will be bringing something as well.  We will be talking about the award dinner we have plus the conventions coming up this summer.

The weather has been beautiful for the last several days.  Sometimes it has been chilly and others not so much.  It has been forecast to have showers.  Not until the weekend I believe.

As I mentioned earlier I am having the exterminator come and spray the house.  Now I can start concentrating on things I need for the house such as a few new windows, and a new storm door.  I am thinking of a security system as well.

In the mean time I am going to get ready for bed have lots to get ready for…
