Eye Surgery and Today’s Happenings

My friend Bob came through his eye surgery really great! He has a large metal patch over his right eye and there’s a blue patch under that one. The top one is like a protector of sorts. He can see now !! He came up to my apartment after my friend Chris drove him home from the hospital this afternoon. There was a small problem, but they fixed it and that’s why it took longer than expected.

I fixed the contrast on his computer for him, as he had it extremely high. After asking if there was anything he needed me to do, I came back home and he has eaten and  is “resting .”

My day began as I woke up and sat on the edge of my bed, picking up my cell phone and calling Bob before he was to leave for his ride to the hospital. Let me tell you, last night I was saying “heavy-duty” prayers for him !

After showering and eating breakfast, Scoot and I drove done to the post office and sent off a couple of paid bills. Ahhhh, that felt good to have them paid! 🙂

Then we took the curves and intersections at a pretty good speed, but carefully, and went to the pharmacy, CVS and picked up two prescriptions and then checked out and drove across the street to Publix grocery store for a few food items I was out of.

I have yet to call Mom and see how she is today , after going to the casino up at Soaring Eagle in Michigan. My sister Janet,  took her there for Mother’s Day gift. Mom loves all the noises up there, so she says, haha. 😉

Now I’m relaxing after a worrisome morning and have even did a recording in SingSnap today that’s by the Ronettes, a singing group from back in the 60’s.  It was fun, and I chose a theme in red and golds for the background.

Now it’s time for supper already ! My goodness, where does the time go !? Today has been sunny and hot and is chamber of commerce weather here now. We will enjoy this while we can, because soon, we will be super hot until near the end of October!

That’s all for now. 🙂

Monday Monday

I sincerely hope all the Mom’s and Dad-Mom’s had a nice Mother’s Day Sunday. I sure did ! This is the first year in a very long time that I was actually happy. I am “happy” to have given birth to 5 beautiful children and now they are all grown and have families of their own, which makes me a Gramma and Great-Gramma!

I talked with my Mom and also my sister up in Michigan this morning…well in fact, I talked twice with Mom. 🙂 She is 87 now. Wow.

My friend Bob sent her a pretty Mother’s day card , as his Mom is passed away. I’m concerned for him tonight as he will be going into surgery at 9:00a.m. Monday for his eyes.

My friend Chris is driving him to the Va. hospital and picking him up a few hours later. I will help him when he gets home. He will have 11 days off from his part-time job so he can heal and re-couperate from the delicate eye surgery.

Emotions and True Friends

I so wish I would have handled a situation earlier this year.

 I was also hurt but the person who I hurt, although I was going through the loss of my real Dad,  plus a dear friend who also passed away, plus physical health issues, I said (typed) words, words that hurt this person ( a very dear, very special friend )

 I did’nt realize or take the time to realize that they were going through the same thing . Looking back, it was silly really and was none of my business, but I “thought” it was.
I’m born in July and am very emotional, and most true friends last forever in my life.

I’m one that forgives and forgets but some say they can forgive, but cannot forget.

So a friendship that has been years , has been fractured, broken by both of us. It’s not just a one-sided thing. I was hurt also. I was struggling, also. But they were hurting too, so they could not see beyond their own hurt.

I’m very sorry right from my heart and if this person does not wish me to be in their life, that’s their right.

I just have to learn from *my own* mistakes and go on living the life God gave me.

Amtrak Station Tampa To Miami

This is me, Sunny, going to Miami Beach! Click on the photo to enlarge

This is me a year ago, waiting patiently and so happy and excited to be going on my vacation to Miami Beach! I’m sitting in the Tampa Amtrak Station, and my friend Bob took this picture. Amtrak is so fun and is currently the only way I can travel. I’m planning a trip ( long journey) to my home state of Michigan on Amtrak  for next year around September. I’ll have to book a little bedroom though. It’s a 4 day trip!

Miami Beach Florida

Here is another photo I took while on vacation in Miami Beach last year.

My most fave place to sink my toes into the sand

I used to actually live right across the street from here, as this is the 38th street entrance from the boardwalk, to the beach. Collins Avenue is a 1/2 block back west from here. The apartment building  was being gutted and renovated in 2009, and I was sad to see the place go, as it was in good shape and very Art Deco-ish! But developers wanted to make it newer and get more “money.”

Miami Beach Photo I Took From The Boardwalk

This is a picture  I took while on vacation in Miami Beach Florida last year. Miami Beach was my home for a good long while. Today I woke up thinking of friends , so many friends that are now gone to be at Peace, or have moved and we all have lost contact. One of them is Paul but he’s very ill now. It’s so sad…he did’nt even know me when I was there to visit him.  Paul is “one of the bunch” of us who all hung out together. He is in his late 70’s  ~

Anyway,  I just love the three palm trees I captured in this picture with the sun rays ~
