A Happy Birthday and Update

Hello Everyone!

I have not been blogging much because it is more fun to just make videos.  My daughter, Tammy, has made a great blog post about my 68th birthday.

If you will click on the link below, you can read all about it and see lots of pictures.  The #8 on my cake fell over just as Tammy snapped the picture.

Tammy's camera takes such clear pictures.  If it didn't take HOURS to go get a new phone, I would go get one like hers.  Last time I went to the phone place the girl told me she would have to upload my phone to the cloud ALL NIGHT.  How crazy.  Isn't your stuff already on the cloud?

I had my second eye done yesterday, 8-7-18, and I could see clearly by this morning.  My vision was 20/20 in my right eye and 20/25 in my left eye.  My left eye was done two weeks ago.  My vision is absolutely AMAZING!  I am awe-struck at the whole procedure and outcome.  It is shocking how horrible my vision was even with contacts in both eyes.  Right now, I have only distance lenses from the surgeries, and I can see what I am typing to you perfectly.  I went to my regular eye doctor today, and I think he is as surprised as I am.

If you watch my Youtube channel, you know we are selling our business, and I have been  house hunting in Edmond for a larger house.  Why?  Because I want to be close to my daughter and grand kids and great grand kids when I am older, and I sure don't want to be looking for a house then.

House hunting has come to a halt because nothing is right, and we don't want to build.  Been there, done that!  Not fun.

I am thinking now of redecorating the house we already own here.  I have never done anything to it because we were only supposed to live here two years.  We have been here TEN years!

Really, I want to wait until the sale of our business is finalized.  We should be signing papers August 23rd and receiving payment, but ....

We will see what actually happens.  So much is involved.

I have lots of sewing projects, and I will make some more videos as soon as time and my eyes permit.  I have to put eye drops in for another two weeks, and my right eye has a fresh wound.

I can't bend over or lift stuff.  That limits one.
For now, I am going to watch Youtube videos of sewing, quilting, cooking or whatever happens to pop up that looks interesting.  Old Johnny Carson videos are fun, and I like Dolly Parton.  I LOVE Andre' Rieu, but I've watched his videos so many times, I know them by heart.  Margaret gave me another one of his DVD's for my birthday.  He is the nicest man and so majorly gifted.

If you don't know him, click the link below.  He has many Youtube videos, but this is one of my favorites.  I LOVE to waltz -- or try to -- and love this kind of music.  As you will see, so do thousands of others.  Margaret is going to a live concert in September in Chicago!  She invited me, but I can't leave our business and Jerry to go with her.  She gave me a DVD of  the Maastricht concert last Christmas, and I was immediately hooked!  I've played it a dozen times.

I better stop before I put you all to sleep.  Check out my Youtube videos if you don't see me here.

Hugs, Joy
