Eye recovering and sister is, too, from my intention to publish my memoirs

I guess my sister who even had a stint as a psychiatric nurse in the Arizona State Mental Hospital was taken by surprise by my intent to publish my memoir of my early years. God knows there was plenty of drama in those first 20 years. I intend to stop when I get married, as some siblings of my ex-husband are still alive and might be reactive. He is undoubtedly dead (disappeared 4 years ago)but his sister still lives in Boulder. She is up in her eighties but very alert. She does not have signs of the Alzheimers that plagued Dean and may have had quite a bit to do with his walk into the desert. If he didn't do that, then he may have been murdered for what money he carried, which was usually quite a bit more than most seniors carry.
My sister shows signs of calming down today which is a relief to me. I am going down to Doc's tomorrow and download a form like Microsoft word, so I can start. I was thinking about it all all evening and can't wait to get going on the writing. I have also done one version, but need to do a final rewrite.
I had to go to the drugstore today to get a prescription for my eye drops when I run out of the ones I have, so I did not want to start today.
My computer is still working very well. My son Dan knew just what to do. But I am still going to put the memoirs on Doc's computer because it has so much room on it. If I want to include photos it can handle and show them, too. I haven't decided about that yet.

I don't think any family would be crazy about memoirs being published. Glad your eye surgey went well.
