Still Here

It has been a while since I wrote in my journal here, but it has been because of being busy. I have seven days left until my eye surgery, and I have been busy for a long time. I have not forgotten my journal here at all. Just getting prepared and ready for my eye surgery. Busy as always. Can’t explain it really. It has been hectic around here lately somewhat as well. I have dealt with another ear infection over a week ago and was nursing that until my eye surgery so everything is going crazy around here. Never thought I would catch a cold and an ear infection so close to my eye surgery, but now I am well again.

While I was away I do have to admit that I missed coming here on a regular basis. I have a feeling that my world is going to be busy – real busy until after the first week of June. As soon as June arrives, things will calm down or I have hopes they will. It has been very hectic around here that’s all.

The Pop

There is this one person I don’t really care for much because of his boisterous, loud, and attitude about this guy. Today he proved to me to be creep and a jerk because I went to open a bottle of pop (my pop) and I noticed that it was going to explode if I did not keep an eye on it and closed up the lid quickly. Good thing I was watching it because I think he shook up my pop just to be funny and I personally don’t like that kind of prank or joke. He chuckled at the idea that my pop was about to explode, giving away his dirty deed, and I gave him a look of disgust and distrust. I was kind of upset at his little prank. I wanted to, the bad side of me which no one sees, to clobber him to the ground, but I only thought that. I have never picked a fight anyone in my life or even had to stand up for myself in a fight thrown by someone else. I am not that time of person. I only think and don’t some things.

Well I am now home and cooling off and away from this creep, jerk – whatever you want to call him. LOL

I guess in a way I was having a slight off day too. I let a guys little dirty deed get to me.

Sometimes People Clash

TOday was one of those days. My friend Kathy, who used to be my roommate four years ago, and I just clashed today big time. She acted like a person with an attitude – it wasn’t like her at all to me. I kind of feel sorry for her today. We went bowling and today she really wanted to win the two games we played, but we lost…it just wasn’t in me to win or lose. I was there to play the game for fun. This week wssn’t for fun with her. She wanted to win. Just todoay was not one of her good days. we clashed big time today!!!

Now we are back home in our respectable places – her trailer home and my apartment. Distance is what is keeping us apart right now. It was just her “Not so good” day maybe. I don’t hold it against her, but she was irritating me slightly today. Now we are both home and cooling off. Thank goodness for distance.

April 9, 2001 – Monday

I have been very busy lately. I have been unable to write in my journal lately because of time, and being out a lot lately. It is Spring now and I am trying to enjoy the weather as much as I can. This past weekend, now one day after, I was definitely busy doing things. I saw my parents on Saturday for a couple of hours, and then as soon as I got home, I was gone again even though it was two hours after arriving home. Because Spring is here and the weather is warming up enough for thunderstorms, we have a nice thunderstorm last Thursday afternoon and early evening, and Saturday we had high winds causing damage to property. Our building, where I live today, had shingles from the roof get blown off, and the garage door was damaged by the wind creating a big hole, and the door to the inside of the garage was blown open, and the cardboard recycle container rolled from its spot until it got caught in the grass – almost damaging the cars by it! The wind was awful. Yesterday I spent the day resting and relaxing and not caring about anything in the world for a while – although I did care for my friends and family. Today begins a new day for me. Did some cleaning. I know tomorrow will be busy for me as well. This whole month of April will be busy for me – even May will be busy for me, I think…

I feel I have neglected my journaling here lately…but I know it is because I have been busy and I have a life beyond my writing and surfing the net, reading, and television. Have I been neglecting my journaling? According to the dates of April I haven’t written, yes, but no to the fact that I’ve been busy.

Eye Surgery Coming Up

As far as I know, eye surgery is scheduled for April 30th…27 days away from today. I am looking forward to it so I can see well again. I have been unable to see well for thirteen years since my cataracts have formed on my eyes. Right now I am keeping my eyes dilated ever few days so I can see around the cataracts. It will be GREAT not having to put medication on my eyes once again. Please pray for me – you Christians out there. I could use the prayers right now. Thanks!! I am not afraid anymore as I once was about the surgery but that has been relieved – the fear – today after speaking to a nurse who works in the anastegiology department. Whew! I am now just getting really excited and anxious for the upcoming surgery…that’s all. Excited!! YES!

Physical/Check up

I went to the doctor today for a check up – physical that will lean towards my eye surgery at the end of the month here. I feel I have not been keeping up with my journaling but that is not new around here. This month is going to be a relatively busy month for me. I have a lot going on right now…I do!!! I don’t think things will calm down for a while right now but I will not be surprised if things cool down by Thursday late afternoon.

A New Month!

I can not believe that March has left us so quickly! I can not believe it. April is already here? Wow! Let’s start the April month out right…writing in my journal here. Starting Monday, I will go back to writing the Chapters of my life during my illness (kidney transplant) but I do have a couple of things I need to do Monday so I will not be able to write in my journal unless I find time in the morning before late afternoon. This weekend, yet March 29th according to my clock and time being after 10:30 p.m…Wisconsin (state) time. I am still getting used to the idea of Dear Diary being about three hours ahead of my time…which I am used to. I am getting used to it though…believe me. I can not believe that April is among us now…I can’t! Unbelieveable but so very true. Today was just another Saturday for me. Except going to church on Saturdays, my weekends are pretty much the same and normal. I am always looking forward to the week ending and Friday comes and every weekend I look forward to. It’s one of those things. Do you understand? When Saturday night closes in, I look forward to Sunday being quiet and peaceful as I do live in an apartment complex of elderly folk. I am, at age 30, grateful for the quietness and peacefullness of the neighbors at nighttime hours after 10 p.m. and I do respect my neighbors as much as possible even though it is kind of hard sometimes believe it or not. It is hard to repsect the neighbors who don’t wish to have young people in the building but because we have a right to live independently like them, we have the right to live here as long as we qualify with SSI and a handicap or disability. I live on a fixed income each month called SSI because I have a physical handicap called CP (cerebral palsy) and a pre-existing condition kidney transplant of thirteen years. I qualify living at Teamster Manor because I have SSI and a disability.
