July 17,2018 I am back!

Tuesday, July 17, 2018

I had to take a short break from Sparks.

The end of June I went to the bi-ennial family reunion. The group just keeps getting smaller due to old age and people going to their forever home. The remainder of us had a great time. It was good to spend time with my Mom, two sisters and many nieces and nephews.

I quit my part time job when I got back from the reunion. Ringo's day care was costing me more than I was making. He seems happy with that decision. He was awesome at the reunion, enjoyed the kids and all the petting. He did well in the strange hotels also.

I had eye surgery the first week of July. The lens from the cataract surgery 3 years ago needed a laser cleaning. Did the follow up this past Friday and things are healing nicely.

Today I want to talk about my wonderful neighbor TJ. She has been a Godsend. She looks after Ringo, drops by to take him for walks, and we really enjoy each others company. When my sister drove up here with three grandkids, we took them to the zoo and TJ went with us. I believe I have found a sister from another mother!

Sunday I went to church with TJ. Just a little background, I am a traditional Lutheran, so when I walked in the church and heard the rock music and saw all the hugging I was like WHOA!! Then people started coming up to me, so women even older than I, and I started to relax. T

    It is so nice to see one of your blogs again, and one where we can feel the joy of good things in your life. It is a gift and a blessing when a new friend comes into our life when we're not expecting it, when we've accepted that we might never find that person you can call in an emergency at 2:00 a.m. or with whom you can share your feelings without judgment.

    And the church and its congregation sound so welcoming. Perhaps it will turn out to be another safe place for you.

    Glad things went well during your surgery. We haven't had a family reunion in years, we are all in so many different zip codes now.

    Oh, was so excited to see you in my email list. Loved hearing that everything fine. I never heard of having to clean the lenses from cataract surgery, how long ago did you have the cataract surgery, I had mine 2 1/2 years ago. Thought that was all you ever had to do.
    Isn't it wonderful that you now have a good friend, we all need friends.

    YAY, I'm glad you're back! It makes a difference having a close friend. The family reunions on hubby's side of the family are getting smaller for the same reason. My family never had reunions.
