A Good Sunday
Had a rough night when I went to bed last night. I had started to watch another Hallmark movie around 9:00 pm but fell asleep, so missed most of it. Gave up on it and went to bed around 10:00. Something just “hit” me and I started sobbing. I even started hugging Ben's pillow, which I have never done before. This went on for about 15 minutes until I finally got up and took a half pill of my sedative and that seemed to calm me down. I fell asleep around 11:45. Yesterday evening I got an email from my friend DeDee. She wanted to know if I'd like to meet her at the mall for lunch Sunday and then come back to my house with her laptop because she wants me to show her how to do some things on it. DeDee is also a widow and understands how lonely it gets and it was so nice of her to ask me to spend some time with her today. She knows that weekends are bad for me. Went and bought Ben's Lotto ticket and came home and washed my sheets and towels. I met DeDee at the mall around 11:00 and we had lunch at Dink's New York Diner then we walked over to Sears Optical where I picked up my new eyeglasses. DeDee came back to my house for me to give her some “lessons” on how Facebook works and a few other things on her computer. I was also trying to show her how her new camera works and how to import the photos from her SD memory card to the laptop, but her SD card reader on the laptop would not read the card. When we'd put it into the computer, it said the card was empty. When I put the card into my laptop, the photos were there. I told her she might need a new card reader if those can be replaced. It sure nice to have someone to spend my Sunday with. Made it bearable for a change. Thanks DeDee.
