That went fast!
Actually the season is through April 17th. My originally scheduled commitment ends Friday the 13th.
I might have to consider adding hours in, but I would be content to stop now!
Hannah's baby, Samuel, got through his heart surgery successfully at the children's hospital in Delaware. I saw him/them once with Tom and he has been back twice since and saw Amy and met Seth's parents.
We are going to Myrtle Beach in May and right around then our CMA tickets should arrive.
Maybe spring will get here too, but that remains doubtful. What a winter!
I'm on duty at Contact (2nd time in as many days). Today I have off from HRB and am trying to get my hours in for Contact.
So tax season is going slowly but I guess it will be picking up soon. So far I have done 3 EZ returns for pittance. We have to work at High St. sometimes now. I made so little my first Jan. pay, they didn't take out any federal withholding (so I put in an amount to be held out.)
Tom and I went to the movies (The Commuter) instead of dancing last night (Tom's idea). We saw two on Tuesday (Greatest Show on Earth and The Shape of Water). The manager recommended we get MoviePass so we both signed up (10 a month each, unlimited movies....sounds like a cost saver at the rate we've been paying 7-9 dollars each like 4 times a month, right? We'll see....
So our Las Vegas vacation positives outweighed the fact that we were sick the whole time we were there. Seeing Sue and Jenn and Patrick was great. Seeing Stephanie was great. We saw Jumanji which was really good. We were away from the bad, freezing NJ weather.
We got home tired only to hear that my car had been noticeably entered and disarrayed.
The call was from an Eastampton policeman Thursday evening (we heard it upon our return Friday evening). He is not available to talk to about it until Monday night. (!) and no one else knows about the incident apparantly.
What it sounds like is the car must have been unlocked (?!!) and someone went in the car and went through my glove compartment and threw items out of the arm storage area onto the drivers seat.
I have no idea if anything was taken, but there were still loose coins left around.
Checking the trunk, I was able to find my gps in the gym bag and nothing there looked touched except the scrabble board was upside down...and might have been that way already...who knows.
The Contact bingo was cancelled so that didn't figure in to the decision. I touched base with my Rec Committee pre Lighting of the Tree ceremony, bringing them cookies and throwing hot chocolate powder into the big urn. Then I grabbed Marion and headed to Bruce's Moorestown Community Band's Winter Concert.
Good choice. It was fabulous!
Wow....December 2017 is Friday
Tom is out playing golf today and I had lunch with Gee Gee which is always a good time.
Tom's health is ragged, as usual, but he doesn't let it stop him. Ever.
I, on the other hand, developed a mysterious, ugly, and annoying swollen and red left eyelid immediately following an eye doctor appointment involving the dreaded field of vision test. Hmm....
I have an eye appointment with Dr. Cohen on Friday. Will he be able to explain the curious timing of my eye ailment in conjunction (no pun intended) to the visit to his office last week? Will the antibiotic I've been taking have it cleared up soon?
We shall see.
So it's a good thing my pre season time at HR Block is over now, because I have a lot of holiday things coming up starting with Friday and the DKG Tea in Riverton.
Too bad three events are all scheduled for Fri. Dec. 8th .
BCEA holiday social, a concert, DEAR lunch, Seniors Xmas party, flying to AR for Mary Grace's wedding, back the day after Christmas, no plans for New Years Eve, flying to Las Vegas Jan. 5-12 (and enjoying the company of Jenn, Sue, and Patrick for the first few days of our vacation) and then back in time for Tax Season 2017 to be underway and the new year...2018.
I don't get enough sleep, I need to clear my house of extraneous materials, Tom and I both need to eat a more healthy diet and exercise more. Yes, you are hearing some New Year's resolutions.
It will be happening August 21, and we are going to be in S. Carolina (a really good place to be for viewing it) at the time. Whoo hoo!
And, coincidentally, while at Prospectors last night, I managed to acquire the special eclipse viewing glasses, so we are all set! :-)
The spring NJREA luncheon/meeting was today.
