Thank you Andy. I am in such a good mood today. I just talked to my daughter and told her I was all through with the eyes. She mentioned that it has been more than a year that all this dang drama has been going on. Now I can give her all my attention.

I have two wheel chairs. One is a regular one that is very heavy and one is a travel one. I can lift that one myself with just one hand. She has had problems with her feet for eons. It all comes from the pointed shoes she wore all the time. You know the kind. The stilletoes. She now has developed bones where there shouldn't be any. And she is having a very difficult time walking. So her oncologist is going to put her in touch with a specialist. She wants to take one of my wheelchairs to get around outside her home. She is welcomed to it. I swore that once I got out of that chair, I would never sit in one again. And I haven't.

Stressing out already, I just woke up!

Have a Dr's appmt later today. Expecting one huge lecture about why I haven't chosen a new Cardiologist yet. Was supposed to do that in December.. Well I guess shining someone else on for a change was good sporting fun. Actually I'm really fed up with all the meds they have me on. There is such a thing as over dosing your patients.

It's make or break day.. Where is that exit sign again?

Winthrop provided the transportation to the eye clinic, I went in and the guy made the adjustment right there at the checkin window. DONE! YAY!!! Now I can get back to my sewing. I sure have missed being able to sit and do it for moments of quiet. Now I have to call my daughter and wish her a Happy Birthday. I can't believe I am the mother of a 57 y.o.
I wish your daughter a very special HAPPY BIRTHDAY too.

I just completed some major rooting around in my storage unit and came up with my weedeater, gas can, digging fork, shovel, rake, hoe, loppers, pruners, and garden seeder.

Spring is here.

Still no sign of pots, pans, or camera.

Finally got around to making a tres leches cake. I've been wanting to make on for about a year. I started out with a white cake recipe from the internet and am currently soaking that in the tres leches mixture. Later I'll make a whipped cream topping to complete the recipe.

I am disappointed in how the cake came out. It sank a bit in spots while cooling. I may have over mixed it. I'm sure it'll taste OK.
