Arrr!!

Did I ever tell you about the time when I twirled around in the bathroom of the camper and my iPhone went flying out into the toilet? Right after we had been stranded for 2 hours in the moonlight in the middle of a lake and hubby had to paddle a huge pontoon boat 1½ miles back to shore? Right after I had a vitreous hemorrhage in my right eye? Yeah that was last weekend.

As my 3 year old grandson says, “I didn’t see that coming from”.

So what had happened was, we went on a camping-get-away-from-the-stress weekend. All went well for the first two days, lots of fun boating, hanging out with friends, relaxing. Then it began with the eye. This vitreous material detached, which is a natural occurrence evidently, only usually it happens peacefully and you don’t know it. Mine was an angry detachment, and roughed up my retina. Hopefully there is no retina tear, the retina specialist is still watching it. New iPhone arrived this week, thankfully it was covered by insurance. And the boat needs a filter replaced in the engine. I got great pictures of the moonlight ride, and of the hubby rowing us back in on that beautiful night, but those photos are on my iPhone that is totally fried, because of course I tried to turn it on while it was still wet and I was panicking. Don’t do that.

That was actually two weekends ago, it’s just taken me this long to recover and post. This past weekend was full of activities, including a block party hosted by our church with tons of fun, and a 20th year celebration for our little church on Sunday. Of course I don’t have pics because I didn’t have my new iPhone yet.

I did run over a curb on my one-eyed journey to work this morning. It was in the parking lot and I’m blaming it on lack of coffee, not the fact that I can’t see out of my right eye.

So my life is full, and I am grateful. We have a beautiful grandson, hubby is loving his new business that grew out of his being laid off from NASA after 36 years (and I am really going to do a post on that, really), and I am enjoying my little antique booth venture. I have tons of projects to finish to get it where I want it to be, but I’ll get there.

It’s all about the journey.
