Easter Songs from back in My Day

Just wanted to pop in and wish everyone a very Happy Easter! I know I often repeat myself but I can't let this day go by without hearing my favorite Easter songs. This is hoping your day is good.~Dinah~

Another Saturday Night

It sure has been quiet around here today(well except for having to run and do a cath change for someone but that's a whole other story). The storms came and went yesterday and left behind a sunny but cool day today so I'm just kind of soaking it up,being lazy and recharging for the week ahead. Here's a couple of pix I took this
morning......see,I'm not the only one kicking back today.

But ya know,all this laying around got me to thinking back on Saturday Night's when I was younger. Back then it was unthinkable to imagine myself sitting home alone. Saturday Night was just meant to be like this.

But when you get older things change and you have to learn to accept it. Heck I've had my share of those night's. I'm not complaining,I've always got Sam Cooke to fall back on.~Dinah~

To Whom it May Concern

I need to start this out with a heartfelt apology(for not posting sooner)to those who have sent kind words and concern for me. It really lifts my spirits to know someone is thinking of me,Thank ya'll from the bottom of my heart.....Now,on to the boring stuff(I'll try to make a long story short). The medicine the Doctor gave me for my stomach and esphogus has really helped,He said they were one solid sore that seems to be from stress,so hopefully that problem will soon be solved. My main worry is the blockage in my right carotid artery. I had surgery on my left one several years ago,they waited until it was 97% blocked and mini-strokes hitting at least once a week. My right one is now at 60%(insurance will not pay for surgery until the blockage reaches at least 70%). So of course they want to treat it,for the time being with meds. The problem is if I take the plavix I end up with blood blisters all over me and the cholesterol medicine puts me in severe muscle pain. It's a no win situation. My fear of having a major stroke doesn't help,my parents both had strokes. My Mother only lived 5 days after having one but my Father lived 10 years as helpless as a baby. I took care of him at home for those 10 years and know the hell he went though. I'm trying to live each day and staying busy to not think about what the future holds for me,some days are harder than others. So,I'm planning a new project. I think it's time to paint the house again.......just as soon as I can decide on colors.♥~Dinah~♥
