Well you stinker, sneaking in when I am not done.  I did have to completely redo the Chat page above.  Grr  And I had to remake the border.  I changed the skin background.  I liked it but even though it was not clouds, it looked like it was and wanted something different.  Made several other backgrounds and picked this one.  I hope you still like the skin. 
I do remember you using a yellow rose them, lol.  My theme was roses too!  Not because of weddings but because it is National Rose Month.  The fairy in the header is wearing a rose dress.  It is also Fairy Month, thus the fairy on the chat page.
Today I did get all my paperwork together for Medicaid program that pays my Medicare premium.  On the phone I thought she said it was due June 30, but as I was reading today, it is due June 13.  My damn hearing got it wrong. So got it all together, printed off my bank statement and have it all set to mail.  It will go in the mailbox in the morning and our mailman will pick it up.  I love that.  
I did not go for my INR today.  Suz has to have the brake pads replaced and could not get it done till tonight.  So rescheduled for tomorrow at 4pm.  Please pray that my number comes down in range.  Monday's surgery is just around the corner.
So how was the bracelet party?  Did you have fun visiting or did you get hooked into buying something?  LOL  I really did not see anything much I liked in the video.  I could see some possibilities, but really did not care much for anything they were showing.  You know they always say "Just come, you do not have to buy anything".  But then you feel guilty and search for something cheap to buy only there is nothing cheap, lol.  Suckered everytime.  But I'll be damned that I always find something I like.
Sat outside for a while this evening with my mama.  I decided to probe her about her youth, lol.  Asking her about her first crush, date, boyfriend.  Turns out those were mostly my dad.  She grew up in a time when everyone did everything in groups not individual dates.  Mostly she did things with her Church group.  Mom danced on skates when she was in high school and was good at it.  I have always sucked at skating...both kinds.  My dad skated too.  So no juicy gossip from mom.  She was a goody two shoes.  So was I for the most part.  I had a few moments.
Going to go play with Kiki and then off to read my email.
I cannot make us tags of the group header or the page header.  Somehow I did not keep the originals when I made them.  And I intended to use them with other titles and names.  So again, I screwed up.  That is what I get when I am rushing.  I have to quit letting the end of the month sneak up on me.
TGIF!
XOXOXO

How is your world turning today?   I had a very nice yesterday ~ leisurely morning and the Lawn service "apparently" really fixed our Sprinkler System.  At least they actually dug up the control box and replaced something, then ran several tests.  Then Bill came over and ran the full watering cycle since it hadn't been run for several days, and checked to see that it actually turned off when it was done.   Of course we've been down this road before, so I won't feel totally confident until we have gone through several cycles.

I had a lovely time at the 'bracelet party' yesterday afternoon.  Karen, the hostess, had learned to do this several months ago in Arizona, and had bought lots of supplies on sale, which she shared with the ladies who were making bracelets.  One other woman and I didn't make one, but sat and visited with the rest of the group as they worked.  It was fun to watch them, and I think would have been fun to actually make one, but they really aren't my taste, and I've been overcome by "stamping", so I can't take on any more. HA!   

Several of the 'girls' are heavily into stamping ~ and all sorts of other crafts.  They all said to give a yell if I needed help or perhaps needed a special stamp that they might have.  I told them that I hadn't done a lot but I was really good at watching the Videos and shopping.  

I was going to stay for just an hour or so since I wasn't making anything, and ended up staying almost three!  Mike was getting ready to call.  lol

Shortly after I got home, Kathy (my Stamping Up rep) stopped by the house with a replacement for an adhesive dispenser I had managed to break (I did it, and didn't expect her to do anything about it, but she said she would, and she did).  Then she also gave me a packet of cards to make as a Thank You for all the shopping I have been doing.  I was shocked, and then when I opened the packet, absolutely delighted!   There was one "made" card to use for an example, and three ready to assemble cards with all the cutting and stamping done so all I have to do is put them together and select a sentiment to use.  They are just beautiful!  What a nice thing for her to do for me!    All in all, a lovely day.

I got the trash and recycle cans to the curb by 7AM yesterday, not knowing whether or not they would come to pick them up because of the holiday. More than half of the other neighbors did the same, but they didn't come, so they are still out there this morning.   The lawn mowing crew is also coming today, and so is Shauna!  She called the day before yesterday and asked if we minded if she came an hour late today.  Her daughter is completing the 10th grade and they are having a ceremony this morning where her daughter will be given several awards!  I can't imagine why she'd rather be there than cleaning my house, but I said it was fine ~ lol.  She is such a good mom.  Her kids are all going to excel in whatever they do.   Reminds me of my long lost youth.  The Mexican kids I went to school with were all stand outs, the best students, best at whatever they did because of their parents, whom I admired so much.

SmilingDaisyChain.gif picture by DorothyCatlady

Your new new skin is equally lovely!  I admit I can't remember what the changes are, but the first one was lovely,and this one is too.   Of course, as always your new Thread is great.  Thank you!

I'm glad you figured it out in time that you need your paperwork in by June 13.  I'm sure everything will be fine.    I took my blood test yesterday and it was a lovely 2.2.   I hope and will pray that yours is beautifully 'in range' so you don't have to worry about postponing the surgery.  

What a good idea to talk to your mom about her past.  You might want to record some of her stories and thoughts.  How I wish I had done that before I lost pretty much everyone in my family.   I don't know if I've ever told you, but I really don't like being the Grown Up!  

I'm so glad Aimoo got things quickly restored for us ~~~ and I so hope things stay that way!

Have a Happy Day!

Good Morning.

Looks like another lovely day here.  Yesterday, Shauna buzzed through the cleaning in less than 3 hours.  That's a first, but everything looks great.  The Lawn folks weren't supposed to come until today, but they came yesterday, the trash and recycle folks picked up, so everything is 'done'.  Nice.    I have a hair cut at 11:30 today and then we will go out for lunch.

So far it seems like our sprinkler system may be working ~~ but my confidence isn't as high as it was.  I think because they actually did what they should have done in the first place, and dug up the controls and replaced the valve, we MAY have a shot at it actually being fixed.   I hope!  It did water this morning, and I don't THINK it's still watering somewhere when it should not be . . .   

I must say, we really do have some lovely neighbors.  It's almost like a small ~ very small ~ town.  Good news because folks really do seem to care about one another, bad news because I can't fart without the whole neighborhood knowing about it.   LOL  So many of them are active in the HOA and they know all the gossip and obviously share it.  Since Mike and I are hermits, we know very little about anyone.  I did learn things about two neighbors who are suffering from what seems to be the start of dementia, and it made me feel awful.    On the other hand, when there has been a death, everyone brings food and attends the funeral, much like when I was growing up in Minnesota, the Land of the Hot Dish.    I feel bad about not having people over, but there are several reasons why I don't.    And so it goes.

Mike cleared out another cabinet (that he had taken over without permission ~ it's MY Library, after all!) and he added a shelf and moved another so now I have two cabinets in the Library for Stampin' Stuff.  Lots of room to expand, you would think, wouldn't you?   Well, no.  Last night I ordered the "Big Shot", a cutting and embossing device, and some plates to go with it so I can die cut and emboss.   Insane!  I don't know who I think I'm going to be making all these cards for.  Hermits have few friends.  LOL   Still, I'm having fun, and it keeps me off the streets.   All this equipment, and I still have only made a very few things.  Will I make more?   I dunno.  I'm not very creative.  I'm so Left Brained that I list!  LOL

Everyone at the party was talking about buying stamps and embossing folders and things on sale at Michaels or Joanns, and all the good deals they got.  All I could think was of the walking and standing.  LOL  

I wasn't able to get into the other group after I posted in the morning, but I could still get in here ~~ until after we talked via messenger.  Then I could get into the group, but couldn't open the messages in General.     For right now, this minute, I can so I'll just say again that I'll be praying for your very successful surgery on Monday, and that you don't drive yourself nutz (like I would) between now and then!   

Sending love, hugs and healing prayers

We just had a Tornado Warning, but it was for the South West Corner of Fond du Lac County and we are North Central.  I
do not know if there was an actual touchdown, but radar was showing rotation in the storm so the alert went out.
Wow, you really are getting into the stamping. Sounds like you have a great Stamp consultant.  One that goes out of her way to make her customers happy.  So nice.  Plus it gets her and keeps her with customers.  She gets her cut in everything you buy.  We had a Home Interior Consultant that was great that way.  I may have come around to the whole party thing.  I only went to one and I really liked it.  But most of my supplies were bought at places like Hobby Lobby, JoAnn's etc, even Ebay.
It was not so much the papers and die cuts, etc. when I was doing it.  We mostly stamped, embossed with powders and heat, colored in with pencils, markers etc.  Then embellish with ribbons, brads and little gems, etc.  Though the last party I went to we did the little shaker box thing which was really cute.  I think I have that card somewhere, lol.  I would love to get my hands on your supplies and play, lol.  It just kills me that it is not possible to make that happen.  I would do like to meet you in person and hug you and thank you for all that you are to me.  So it will just have to be a virtual hug.  


I am happy you had such a good time at the party.  I am glad you went to become more and more a part of the neighborhood.  This way you get caught up with how everyone is and let them know how you all are.  The connection is important in a neighborhood like yours and I do not think you are as much of a hermit as you think you are, lol.  
I do hope the sprinkler system is fixed right this time and stays that way.  Keeping my fingers crossed that it is and that is continues to turn on and off on schedule.
 Louann called me at supper to tell me she had looked at her schedule and realized that she had double booked herself because she wrote the time of her color class wrong.  So could I find someone to pick me up from the surgery.  Otherwise she would be late to the class.  Anyway, I texted my sister Joanne, as she can usually schedule her lunch hour as needed and she will do it.  Said if she had known sooner she could have taken off and taken me and stayed with me.  But I did not know so oh well.  Now I will be alone there and that is not at all what I wanted.  I really wanted someone with me.  Oh well, I can do this.  
I did not make these tags.  A person in one of my groups did and she allows extra names to be requested so I added your name when I requested.  I hope you like it.  
XOXOXO

Good Morning

Another pretty day, heading for 84.    It's been literally decades since I've gone to a beauty parlor on a Saturday.  It will be decades more before I go again, I hope.  B-U-S-Y!  lol   I got a very short haircut, the shape seems good, and it will probably look good in a few weeks.  Problem is that Laine is coming in a few Days.  Ah, well.  If she didn't know that I'm not one of life's great beauties before now, it's time she learn.  Ha.  

We did go to lunch at the Bonefish.  It was good, but not great. When they first opened, all the meals were great.  They had a different manager who was wonderful.  I don't even know who the manager IS now.  Still, we had a nice meal and a nice time.

Lifetime has a new Movie channel for $4 a month.  It's all the Lifetime movies that we normally see 'for free', but they are on demand.  We've been having a hard time finding something to watch, and they offer a free week trial, so we signed up for that and watched a couple of movies.  We enjoyed them, one I had seen before and one I had not.  I definitely don't think it's worth $4 a month so unless Mike strongly disagrees, we'll drop off after the 'trial, I think.

I set my stamping stuff up in the Morning Room again, and just sat and stared at it.  I'm so Left Brained I list, and if I have any creative juices at all, they were not present yesterday.  What a shame it will be if I have all this nice "stuff" and can't do a thing with it.  :-(

I told Mike that now I need a Craft Room.  Of course there isn't any way to have one unless I convert the Library or the Morning Room, neither of which I would do even if Mike would let me.  ha.  Now, after being so unbelievably uninspired yesterday, maybe I just need to give all of my new goodies to the Vets and skulk away.  :-(   Of course you know me well enough to know that I won't give up QUITE that easily, though I may have indeed taken a wrong turn at the pass.  sigh.

I can't even tell you how much I would love to share all this stuff with you ~~ and I know if we were stamping together you would inspire me and I might actually create something.

Several of the new Dahlias I planted seem to have died.  First we got that hail the next day and then our sprinkler system was off and so many days there was some reason why I couldn't water, and then very little sun.  Mike said that we went through the same thing last year and they came back.  I hope he is right.  I put four or five plants into each planter and they do expand.  If I could walk like a human being on that uneven ground and rock, I'd just order some more plants and add them, but I hate to make Mike haul the planters up to the porch for me to just replace a few in each pot.  Maybe I'll ask Shauna to do it for me.  I hate to mis-use her, though she always tells us that she will do anything we need.  Have I mentioned how much I HATE to ask anyone for favors EVER?  Of course we'd pay for her time, but this would be beyond her job description.  It shouldn't take very long to do, it's just "more than".  Oh, listen to me argue with myself ~ LOL    

I do think the sprinkler system is actually fixed (she says, biting her nails). So far, so good, at least!

Ooooh, I HATE that you won't have anyone with you for your surgery!  How can this happen?!    How ARE you getting there ~ and back???   I HATE this!!  I wish Mike and I could take you and stay with you, but of course that's silly.   I will be with you in my heart, but that doesn't help you.  This is awful!!   

I got so flumoxed I forgot to thank you for my pretty tag ~ almost as pretty as one you would have made.   I had to edit myself back in to say Thanks ~~~ so Thanks !!

Louann is still going to take me and she will see that I get in ok and set up with them.  Joanne will pick me up and she will come and sit with me when I get out of surgery.  I told her not to rush.  But I will be glad if she is there when I am done.  Have to sit around a while so the meds wear off some.  I would rather go home and let them wear off there.  By lunch tomorrow this will all be over with.  Thanks for the prayers.
I forgot to tell you that Chris is in jail. I missed all the excitement as I was sleeping.  Fri. night, actually Sat. morning around 6am mom awoke to a a huge fight going on in their apt.  Then mom saw the police come so she opened the front door.  The police talked to mom and then told her to go back inside and close the door, but mom opened it again when the police went into the apt.  Chris was totally out of control.  She actually hurt Scott this time.  Mom said he had a huge knot on his forehead.  The police want him to go to the hospital but he refused.  He asked them not to take Chris and they said "are you kidding?  look at your head".  So they took her and I guess bail is $500 and he just does not have it.  Mom said you cannot.  You have other places your money needs to go.  Maybe she is just going to have to put the time in.  Or let her family bail her out.  Though that is not likely to happen since one of her sons is already in jail himself.  He went up today to take her her meds...which they will not allow and to visit, but he was not on the visitors list.  I guess she had not filled that out, so no visit.
Mom said there goes our cleaning and she owes us one for the one that mom did.  I hope she dries out and they order her into therapy or something.  Her meds and alcohol just do not work well together.  
Gotta go.  Lot's to do before I try to get some sleep.
Chat with you tomorrow I hope.  Not sure how vision will be.
XOXOXO

Good Morning.

Another sunny day in the low 80s.  I slept well (halulia!) and have really nothing planned for today.  I may play with cards again, and then pack everything up to be ready for Laine's visit on Wednesday - Saturday.   Yesterday I played a bit and I feel a bit more optimistic that I can at least do something ~ maybe.  ha. I see all these gorgeous things online and envision myself making things like that.  Then I sit down ready to "create" and . . . . remember how not creative I am.  Much of it right now is a learning curve for me.  I know what I want to do, but when I start to do it, well, I'm just not there yet.  Maybe never.  Anyway, while I didn't create works of art, I did a few things and I felt better about it all.   

Lord, don't I have the most exciting life of anyone you know?  LOL

No ~ YOU have the most exciting life!   Sorry you missed all the 'fun' with Chris and sorrier that you may never get the house cleaning you're owed.  Do NOT pay in advance, you heah?   (Ok.  I know YOU hear, and I can't yell at your mom, can I?  LOL)

You are in my prayers, I'm sure you know!!

Love my beautiful tag ~~~ Thank you!

Just checking in to see if there is any word.  You probably need to rest your eye, so don't worry about posting.  I'm thinking the best!

Good Morning!

Ok, it's getting hot, here, heading for 88.  Yesterday afternoon the Heavens opened and we had an uber-rain ~~ for about 15 minutes.  Almost funny how hard it rains, and for such a short time.  

I think we are ready for Laine's visit tomorrow through Saturday.  We haven't really made any plans but we do have a few ideas about going out for dinner.  I know she won't be spending all of her time with us which is good cuz we're pretty boring.  We'll just play it by ear.

It was so good to hear from you on Messenger last night and to know you are ok.   I hope the procedure wasn't too bad and you are going to have GOOD vision!  Give yourself time to heal before you feel the need to spend time posting and strain your eye.  I'll wait.

Hello.  Happy Hump Day!

Another day heading for the mid to high 80s.  I can't complain.  Mike and I misread texts from Laine and thought she was arriving at DIA at 7:30 this morning but thank goodness we "talked" last night and realized it is 7:30 TONIGHT!   She is being picked up by someone else ~ driving is getting too hard for Mike and I haven't driven in ages.  Though I still can if I have to, it would only be 'local' (a.k.a. fairly close by).  We might have thought they would be going our for breakfast or something, but by 10AM, we'd have been really worried.  I'm certainly glad we cleared that up last night!    Soooo, not much planned for today now, and that's nice, too.   Mike has a haircut this afternoon, and he will  pick up some things she wants for breakfast.  I may not go with him, but just sit home and worry. LOL

I'm getting enthused about the stamping again.  I won't expect "me" to create the beautiful things I see others in the videos or on Pintrest do just yet.  I really haven't spent a lot of time actually working on the cards.  

Speaking of ~~~ When I started I joined a monthly "kit" I told you about called Paper Pumpkin.  It costs $19 a month including shipping but you can cancel any months you want in advance. They send everything to make a project in one small box.  The first one was to make a small wreath ~ cute but nothing I was interested in doing.  Not to worry.  Those clever crafters online came up with all sorts of alternative uses for the supplies in the kit and posted them.  This month, Paper Pumpkin gave all the supplies to make (I can't remember how many ~ 8 or 10?) cards for Father's Day or other occasions.  I made one for my nephew's upcoming birthday, and I've changed out the background color from corrugated orange to turquoise and I'm working on an anniversary card for Mike.  I see lots of other things I'll be able to do with this kit. 

ANYWAY, for tomorrow (Thursday) ONLY, Stampin Up is offering the monthly Paper Pumpkin kit for only $5, and that includes shipping.  If it contains what they are showing on the video, it will be a lot of cute cards.  Usually, you don't know what it will be ~ that's part of the fun ~ but it includes everything you need to make whatever it is.   I'm going to share the link so if you are interested can try it.  You can cancel anytime.   I'll be paying $19!  :-(

I know you understand that we have company, and I don't feel comfortable being on line while she is visiting.  I did send you a FB message about the $5 Paper Pumpkin Kit, but I know you are having trouble seeing.  I hope it clears soon.  How miserable!  I thought you might get a kick out of the kit since it has everything to create the project, whatever it is, but the timing was bad.  

We are having a nice time, but Mike and I aren't used to having someone here all the time, and we're getting tired ~~ LOL.   We woke up too early on Wednesday (around 5AM) and then she didn't actually get to our house until close to 10:30 PM.   I had to stay dressed and with make up on!  Then the next morning, I was awakened by a call on my cell phone from the Arvada Police Department, telling me about an 85 year old Hispanic woman who had been missing for 24 hours, and describing her and where she was last seen.  Ok.  Then I got a text message from them about the same woman.  Got up to go to the bathroom, and the land line phone rang, with the same message.  By this time, something like 10 minutes before 5 AM, we were both wide awake, and our day began.   Are you getting the picture?  LOL.

Last night we took Laine to the Hideaway, spent WAY too much money and the waiter offered to take a picture of the three of us.  Yay.  Then he kept taking pictures, and I wondered why.  Did we look that bad in most of them, or what?   Come to find out, one of the waitresses was Photo Bombing us every time he'd take a picture!   Really kind of funny, but at the same time, a couple of the pics might have been good without her. You know how rarely I can get a picture that includes me where everyone looks pretty good.  Now I'm laughing, but none of us were all that amused at first.  There were 9 pictures and she was in most of them! 






And so it goes.  I'll try to slip in when I can.  Love you much.

Dorothy

I AM TRYING THIS AGAIN.  I REMADE THE BORDER AND HAVE THE TAGS IN AND AM PRAYING I DO NOT HAVE THE ISSUES I HAD LAST TIME.  I HAVE THE SITE BLOWN UP  175%.  IT IS THE SMALLEST I CAN GO AND STILL SEE IT.  IF YOU WOULD NOT MIND USING  LARGE TYPE FOR A WHILE.  14 ALL CAPS AND THEN I CAN MANAGE. HOPEFULLY!
I THINK THE PHOTOS ARE GREAT AND THE BOMBER IS FUNNY.  THAT LAST PIC OF YOU IS GREAT BUT NOT SO MUCH FOR MIKE.  I HOPE NOW THAT IT IS OVER YOU ENJOYED YOUR VISIT WITH LAINE AND ARE NOT TOO EXHAUSTED.  
YOU NEED TO GET BOLDER WITH YOUR STAMPING/CARD MAKING.  YOU CAN DO THE THINGS THEY ARE DOING IN THOSE VIDEOS.  JUST WATCH IT AND THEN DO IT WITH THE VIDEO IS ON AND STOP IT WHENEVER YOU NEED TO.  YOU CAN DO THIS.  MY COUSIN SENT ME A CARD TODAY THAT SHE MADE.  NOT SO HOT!  BUT COULD BE PRETTY.
THE SURGERY DAY SUCKED AND I WAS SO GLAD WHEN IT WAS OVER AND I WENT HOME.  i WAS SUPPOSED TO BE THERE AT 9AM AND SURGERY WAS AT 9:45. HE STARTS SURGERY AT 7:30 AND HE WAS ALREADY BEHIND.  I WAS STILL SITTING IN THE WAITING ROOM AT 9:30 QNE THEY FINALLY CAME FOR ME.
HAD TO TAKE SHIRT OFF AND PUT ON A GOWN THAT WAS MADE FOR A MOUSE.  SHE DID OPEN UP SNAPS ON THE TOPS OF THE SLEEVES THAT STOPPED ME FROM CHOKING TO DEATH.  THIS WAS BECAUSE I HAD TO HAVE HEART MONITOR ON AND LEADS IN 2 PLACES.  THE GURNEY WAS SO NARROW THAT  I HAD NO WHERE TO PUT MY ARMS.  EYE DROPS OVER AND OVER AGAIN AND I AM SO UNCOMFORTABLE.  SHE FINALLY PUT MY HEAD UP AND MY LEGS AND I WAS COMFORTABLE.  HE WAS RUNNING ABOUT 20 MIN BEHIND THEY SAID.  I HAVE NO CLUE WHAT TIME THEY TOOK ME TO WHERE I WAS HAVING THE SURGERY.  IMMEDIATELY THEY PUT ME  FLAT, TAPED MY HEAD SO I COULD NOT MOVE IT, PUT THE RAILS UP AND MY ARMS WERE WEDGED IN BETWEEN ME AND THE BARS.  THEY TRIED PUTTING TOWELS IN BETWEEN ME AND THE BARS BUT IT DID NOT HELP.  I WAS MISERABLE.  MY BACK WAS KILLING ME. MY ARMS WERE HURTING AND I HAD A HEADACHE.  I LAYED THERE FOREVER AND SUFFERED.  I ASKED HOW LATE HE WAS RUNNING NOW, THEY SAID 15-20 MIN.  SO MUCH FOR ME ONLY HAVING TO BE ON MY BACK FOR 15 MIN.  SO THEN THEY FINALLY RAISED MY HEAD SOME AND PUT 2 PILLOWS UNDER MY LEGS. BUT IT WAS TOO LATE AND IT MADE NO DIFFERENCE.  ONE THE DOCTOR CAME IT WENT QUICK AND THEN THEY TOOK ME BACK TO THE ROOM I CAME FROM.  THEY HELPED ME UP AND GOT OFF AND SAT IN A RECLINER.  THEY BROUGHT ME WATER AND A GRANOLA BAR.  MY CHOICE.  JOANNE CAME IN AS SHE HAD BEEN MOVING THE CAR TO THE NEAREST EXIT.  THEY ASKED ME HOW I FELT AND I SAID FINE SO THE LET ME GO.  IT WAS NOON!!!  I THOUGHT I WOULD BE OUT BY 10:3O AT THE LATEST.  I WAS NOT ALONE EVER.  JOANNE ARRIVED AS LOUANN WAS LEAVING.   SO I CANNOT SEE WITH MY GLASSES ON OR OFF, THOUGH IT IS BETTER OFF FOR DISTANCE, THOUGH NOT GREAT.  READING IS THE PITS.  EVEN BLOWN UP IT IS DIFFICULT AS I AM GETTING A SIDE HALO NOW WHICH MAKES ALL THE WORDS RUN TOGETHER.  IT SUCKS!  OK, THAT IS IT FOR ME TONIGHT.  MY VISION IS TOTALLY BLURRING.
XOXOXO

You're back!   It's so good to see you ~ and maybe good that you can't see me! Overnight a blood vessel in my eye broke, and I look lopsided, or perhaps like a character in a horror movie who is "changing".  One eye appears very black and the other 'normal'.  Kinda funny looking.  Weird thing is that it actually hurts a little bit, and did during the night.  Usually you only know that has happened when someone else comments on it.  Anyway, today I look "interesting".  

I can't believe how awful this surgery has been for you!  It should never have been this bad. I hate this!  It would be bad enough if you could rely on your other eye until this one is healed, but you can't even do that.     I'm glad you are seeing (or at least visiting) your Dr tomorrow.  I've never heard of anyone having this much trouble.  Give him hell!   

LOL Looks like another beautiful day in the neighborhood.   It was hot yesterday, and then in the afternoon it rained really hard, but only for about half an hour.  We'll see what today brings.

Like everyone, we have watched more coverage on Orlando.  Heartbreaking and infuriating.   

I love the beautiful tag and border.  Thank you!
