I'm back....

I've been so busy since I returned from the Ginny Doll get together in Ohio. The weather was wonderful, the sky so blue, and we had so much fun. It was a nice break for me. There's so much stress in my life worrying about Dad and trying to keep up with things around the house. Some days I have no energy at all and the days are wasted. Escaping into Ginny's fantasy world was a welcomed change.

This year the theme was a park in the 1950's in Medford, MA. We set our dolls up in various themes. I put pictures up in my picturetrail album. It's if you want to take a look. Here's a picture of the drive in. We all got to watch a 3-D movie!

It's done nothing but rain all summer. Once in a while we have a little sunshine, but at least with cloudy skies it keeps the heat down. In all the years we've lived in the Houston area I cannot remember a summer where we didn't have to water by now. Normally we start watering in April or May, but this year the sprinkler has pretty much gone unused.

I bought a new contact lens case at Target and used it for the first time. Yesterday morning when I opened the case I discovered that the lid had taken off a piece of my one lens. It's ruined! I had been to the eye doctor on July 3rd and they ordered new lenses, but they're not in yet!!! I've got very bad vision and actually see better with contacts. I don't even like to drive with glasses, so now I'm up the creek without an to speak. I do have one old pair that I kept for an emergency, but they're very uncomfortable and can only be worn for a short time. I'm going to be sticking close to home until the new ones come in.

I guess this post will go without a title. For some reason Blogger won't let me post a title today. I've reloaded the page a few times to see if that would help, but I'm in a hurry and can't fool with it any longer.

I leave first thing tomorrow morning for my annual doll get together in Ohio. My flight is at 6:35 AM...GROAN! I am not a morning person. I'm really looking forward to this trip. We'll play dolls the entire time. This year our theme is Medford Park in the 1950's and we will set our dolls up in scenes that depict the theme. In the past we've done Medford Mall at Christmas, Ginny Ambassadors, Medford Lodge, etc. If you'd like to take a look I have pictures posted at

I'd better get back to packing. Betty
