FILL IN AN INSPIRATIONAL QUOTE HERE (I'M FRESH OUT TODAY :)
Wow! last few days have been really busy, probably the same with you all. It's that time of year that everyone wants to get outside and plant something - anything - as long as it makes you feel like Spring is really here. I guess the THREE KINGS (last three days of really cold weather before it is truly safe to plant things) is almost done.
I talked to Sandy R. from Georgia a few days ago and as usual, we just pick up the conversation from where we left off the last time. It made my day.
The blog title today describes me. I can't decide if it is from old age, stupidness, lack of concentration, or what . . . but I can't see very clearly and I finally found out the reason why. I had mentioned that chemo was affecting my eyesight.
Well. Not really.
We are the type of people to have a dozen of those "cheaters", you know the Dollar Store magnifying glasses, laying around at every telephone, desk, or even in every room. It helps to have a pair handy when us oldsters need to read fine print on something. Most of the glasses come in gold metal rimmed frames. My prescription glasses happen to have gold metal rimmed frames. Somewhere in all the hub-bub, I mixed my prescription glasses in with the magnifying ones, and I evidently have been wearing a pair of cheaters! Now I can't find the good glasses.
No wonder I haven't been able to see things clearly!
So, Friday was spent getting my eyes checked and then ordering new glasses and even prescription sunglasses. We had a bunch more errands to run so that took up all of Friday. then Lon and I took some time off and went out of town for the night and then got back early last evening.
Amazingly enough, the details to settling Dad's affairs seem to be going smoothly. Everyone is sharing their thoughts and ideas, and amongst the six of us, we seem to have everything under control and moving forward. I think of Dad every day and imagine him with Mother and the rest of the clan, and finally being very happy. But it still seems surreal. Things can change so quickly. Sometimes it's hard to mentally digest what is going on. You know?
Have to mention another aspect of my husband and my lives. We are totally on the same page about the fact that we are complete opposites and can't agree on the same thing (except for the fact that we think about everything completely opposite - get it?) Well, I really enjoy watching The Pioneer Woman, Rhee Drummond on the Food Channel. I hate to cook, can't taste much of anything, and what I can, it tastes like crap, but it's fun to watch someone slap together all kinds of food and come up with a tasty meal. Anyhoo, Rhee has really deep dimples and she smiles all the time! He thinks her dimples must hurt her face so he can't stand to watch her.
Tuesday I go back to the plastic surgeon to find out when my appointment is for reconstructive surgery. I have so much packing and sorting at the farm for the farm auction we are having, that I am almost afraid to have the operation too soon, because I will be kinda incapacitated for a while, as far as using my arms. Remember, I have to have the dreaded DRAIN TUBES again. Hopefully, it will only be for a few days this time. Wait, didn't I say that the last time and I went the whole stinking four weeks!? It will feel different having perky, 21-year old ta tas on a 61-year old granny. I'm sure that is making a mental picture for all of you, and when you do run into me later, everyone's eyes will be on the chest. Whatever. I'm just glad there will be something left to stare at. I'll keep you in the loop as far as those plans go. (Dr. said this last piece of surgery will be a piece o' cake compared to what we have already gone through).
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
