Hair done - check!


Nails done, toes done, check.  Suitcase packed and by the door, check.  Boarding pass, passport, cash, check.  Ready to rock and roll in the morning but today I shall see the duck!

You know it's hard to pack in one carry on and take gifts to friends on the ship but I did it.  Coming home I'll have lots of room but I'll admit it's tight going.

So last night Edward came over and we had a couple of drinks and some food and talked and kissed a bit, that's the last time I will see him until I get back from the cruise.  We talked a bit about where we are going and we decided we don't know but we are having fun and that's all that matters.  For now.  Baby steps.  Delicious baby steps.

Have a great Sunday y'all.  You know I will too, that's for sure!

Today is hair and pedicure day.  Remember you can't get on the ship unless you can pass the strict toe inspection, no pedicure, no cruise.  They have a whole section where they inspect you.  (You do know I'm kidding, right?)  But I am still having the pedicure for sure.

Also I have to begin packing. I have the suitcase out but need to decide what clothes to take. I travel light so things must do double duty.  Monday to Friday with one carry on suitcase. 

Sorry this is short, life is getting in my way lately... Plus I am slightly

It felt SOOOO good to get back in the gym!  I did 45 minutes, mostly cardio, and I have my assignment for while I am gone from Andre'.  Then it was home and a shower to go meet Edward for lunch.  Did I mention he is a world class kisser?  I did?  Well it bears mentioning again just in case any of you forgot.  That man takes my breath away.  He looks right into your eyes and pulls you to him and those lips, oh baby!

Then it was home again to cook the turkey to take to Ryan's for his party.  I made a key lime pie too.  Oh, and gravy.  I enjoyed meeting his friends and he is such a gracious host, always making everyone feel comfortable.

Today I see Dr. Wacks.  It will be the first time he has seen me since the surgery.  I'll let you know what he has to say.

Guess that's about it for me today.  Hope your Friday is totally tits.  Mine will be, I plan on going to the pool in the afternoon if it's not raining.

Dry eyes...


This is the combination TCD told me to ask Dr. Pinsky if I could use.  They were approved by him and two days on this combination has seen a marked improvement in my eyes.  I got both on Amazon.  Just thought you might like to know... Bee

Progress - facelift photos







I have been asked to show the progression of the face.  If you are queasy please skip this post.  You have been warned!  The early ones are hard to look at but very honestly there was very little pain other than day one and two.  Honest!

Day 41

Free!  To exercise, to get my hair done, to swim - all of it.  Dr. Pinsky said I healed really fast and can resume full activities now rather than wait for the eight week period so Saturday I am getting my hair done and today I am going to Andre'!  He was really pleased and so am I.  Yes, there is still some swelling but it is less every day and he said it will soon be gone, another six weeks or so.  Exciting?  Yes!

I have the suitcase out and on the dining room table and all the things are progressing nicely.

This afternoon I am having lunch with Edward and then I am going to Ryan's for dinner with him and some of his friends.  

So this is the last day of April.  We are one third done with 2015!  Yikes, it's zooming by isn't it?

Have a lovely Thursday y'all.  You know I will too, I'll be doing three activities, all things I love!  And I might be slightly...

Day 40

I met Edward for lunch yesterday and it was really (really) nice.  I know he's the bad boy but it's really exciting in a way.  Not in my comfort zone at all which is why I think I like him so much.  And can he kiss, mother in heaven that man can kiss.

Today I have Dr. Pinsky and then Mahjong afterward.  We almost didn't have a game because of illness and out of town but we got it together and found someone.  It will be a nice day, we are playing at the club.  Most people going north have gone now so it's much quieter in the card room.

The paint is being put on the hallway walls on my floor now.  It's not my choice of color as I have said but it is still such an improvement that I will not complain.  The workers have been very nice and friendly too.

I didn't win at poker last night but I didn't lose too much.  I was ahead in the beginning but lost some at the end.

That's all I know my dears.  Have a lovely Wednesday, I will too for sure! I have been slightly...

Good boy/Bad boy???



Yesterday I was thinking about these two guys and how very different they really are, in fact they are polar opposites in every way.

TCD: Extremely polite, impeccable manners, lives in Palm Beach, drives a BMW, owns his office, has a staff to work for him, sweet and kind to everyone, takes me nice places, never touches me other than a hug and a kiss on the cheek, extremely handsome, Syrian but American citizen.

Edward: Rents an apartment, drives one of those square cars, can't take me nice places until January because has cash problems because of the renovations of his rental properties, can make me swoon with a look, a world class kisser, checkered past sort of, would gladly ravish me in a heartbeat, very sexy, Australian but American citizen.

And yet I like them both.  I think what I will do is just keep going as I am until something happens and I either have to make a decision of some kind or one of them moves on.  TCD I think is just a great friend (without benefits!) that I enjoy being with, at least I think so.  Who knows really?  He never says but continues to be sweet, text me, call me, take me out.

I think I wanted to write all this down to get my own head straight.  I am truly having the time of my life right now but I know this can't continue.  Thanks for listening!

Our hallways are finally under restoration!  This is the rendering of what they will look like when completed.  Half the people love it and the other half hate it.  Me?  I just wanted them redone so badly I don't care really.  It's not what I would have chosen but I can live with it.  I think it's about a three month project and it was a nice assessment but I paid it gladly.

So yesterday was a nice day really.  I had lunch with the duck and then came home and did some chores and Ryan my BFF picked me up and we went to dinner and had a lovely evening.  He has been gone a few weeks house and dog sitting and is finally back home.  We are meeting at the pool at 10:00 this morning to swim and then I have an appointment to have my teeth cleaned at 1:00, that's why we are going early.

TCD told me to take flaxseed oil for my dry eyes so I got some yesterday when I went to the store.  I'll let you know if it works.  He said it would work better than the fish oil for the eyes and that he also took it.

Have a fabulous Monday and new week.  I promise I will too and maybe by the end of the week I will have made up my mind what to do about the two guys I like.  Stay tuned in case I am...

So this is what I wore for my dinner with TCD.  We went to the Breaker's Steakhouse.  It was very elegant and he was the perfect gentleman in every way.  I also got to meet his mom and we hit it off really good.  She is really a sweetheart.  I had a wonderful evening.

Back to reality today.  I shall be with the duck today and possibly the pool later.  We'll see.  And then Monday I have Dr. Pinsky again.

I was telling TCD how I had been waking up at 3:00 AM lately and he said I won't heal if I don't get enough sleep.  I never thought of that, I just thought I was tired.  He suggested if I wake up that I take a benadril (is that spelled right?), anyway I said I'd try it.

Have a wonderful Sunday y'all.  I will too, I get to see Old Chuckie Duck!!
