Happy Spring

D2G0nraW0AE8jr8Spring officially started Monday afternoon which makes me happy. The weather has been ok these past few days, definitely longing for the weather to continue to warm up. Looking forward to patio season. But I'll take this for now. 

Other than that not too much new really. Last week was St. Patrick's Day on Friday. We didn't do anything really but had a corned beef sandwich over the weekend. :) On Saturday we had lunch at Rizzuto's and later watched some stuff on TV. And Sunday we went to see the new "Shazam" movie at the theater in Southbury followed by pizza at Newsylum Brewery and a few more drinks at Rosy's before catching up on more TV at home.

This week has been relatively uneventful so far as well. Yesterday we had a work happy hour after work hosted by one of our vendors which was nice. Free drinks and food is never a bad thing. :)

No real plans for the rest of the week or the weekend at the moment. Will just see how it goes.

Oh, we bought tickets to see "Bad Cinderella" on Broadway in June - definitely looking forward to that. Our tickets are side rear mezzanine but at least they weren't horrendously priced as most Broadway tickets seem to be these days.

So yeah, that's about all I have for right now.

Daylight Savings, The Oscars, Niagara on the Lake, ..

FB_IMG_1673619433851Halfway through March, I really don't know where the time is going lately. Today was a snow day here and while it literally snowed on and off all day and sometimes quite big flakes it never really stuck. We probably got about half an inch to an inch and mostly it was covering the grass and some other areas but never the roads. I am not complaining but the way everybody was acting you would think we had a blizzard. I am guessing because we haven't had much of a winter this year with barely any snow everybody is craving a "snow day" or something. Businesses ended up closing and all, it was really bizarre. Areas north of us did get quite a lot of snow. I saw on the news that some areas of the Berkshires got as much as 3 feet of snow. Yikes. Knock on wood we really have been lucky here in my corner of CT this winter while a lot of areas all over the US have been blanketed in snow. And of course poor southern CA and all the rain. It's been nuts.

Well anyway, other than that not too much going on. Switched to Daylight Savings time this past weekend and I am never a huge fan of losing an hour of sleep so still dealing with that. I do like that it's light out later but I feel like it doesn't really help much in March. I would prefer to have light in the morning when I get up. But I guess you can't make everybody happy.

This past Sunday were the Oscars and as usual we watched them and I thought they were pretty good. Lots of moving emotional acceptance speeches and some nice moments overall.

Other than that not too much else new really. Been going to physical therapy for my shoulder but need to do better with doing my exercises at home.

Oh in other fun news we booked a 2 night getaway over Easter weekend (Fr to Sun) to Niagara on the Lake. I am really excited about that. We actually had a trip to there booked for Easter of 2020 but that obviously fell through with the pandemic and the  border to Canada being closed. But we are finally rebooked and going April 7 to 9 this year. Yay. :)

Mohegan Casino Night, Shoulder Troubles, Austria Trip and more

FB_IMG_1677448690253And somehow 2 weeks have passed since my last post, no idea how that happened. Time is just flying by. 

Nothing too much has happened I suppose. Keeping busy at work.

Last weekend we had our Mohegan Sun casino night at work on Saturday so that was fun. I went out there with a friend (a 2hr+ ride) and we had a delicious dinner and open bar with a bunch of my colleagues. After dinner there was a scavenger hunt which involved a bunch of us running around the casino for an hour doing ridiculous things like looking for somebody wearing a cowboy hat or a person with a handlebar mustache. After all that was done we just hung out and eventually went back to the hotel. Came back the next morning and went to lunch with Mike at Hurricane Grill in Newburgh.

The most eventful thing for this week probably is that I finally decided to go to the doctor and get my shoulder checked out. My left shoulder had been bothering me since some time this past summer. I finally made an appointment at an orthopedist and was diagnosed with adhesive capsulitis aka "Frozen Shoulder. Apparently this is something very common in women in their 40ies. Welcome to getting old I guess. I have physical therapy scheduled twice a week and a follow up appointment with the doctor in 6 weeks.

In more fun news I booked my next Austria trip for mid April. Leaving April 19 and returning May 8. I will be working for a good amount of the time while I am there but do have a few days off as well. Looking forward to going back and visiting with my mom and catching up with friends.

That's about all for now. Going to catch up on some recorded TV tonight and tomorrow is already Monday again.
