Tuesday Coffee With Tonya and Weekly Gift Card Giveaway

Good morning! It's Tuesday and what does that mean? Another Tuesday coffee morning chat with me! Hahaha! Here's what's on my eyes! Over the past three months my eyes have lost their ever lovin' mind. Okay...if we were to be far, it's been about a year, but they've gone all wonky over the last three months. I swear they're rebelling against me. Naughty eyes!

About a year ago, I had to go to wearing one contact in only one eye because I'm at that beautiful stage in life where I need readers because I'm near sighted, which means I can't see far away. With one contact in one eye and one eye without one, I was able to do the whole mono-vision thingy. Then....I started to get these nasty little ocular migraines. I can pretty much say those are due to stress and big stress, like when someone close to me dies, or even when my sweet Charlie has to go to the cardiologist for his big six month test and I worry there's something more wrong with him. Then I feel these things coming on. Once I had one on stage when I was public speaking. Though they only last about ten minutes, they still freak me out.


To make a long story longer (as we say in the south), I had one a couple of weeks in a row and that crazy color photo is what I see for ten minutes....I swear....talkin' about freakin' out! Anyways, I've been to the eye doctor and my family doctor. Can you believe it when I tell you that both of them told me that I was getting to that age. That age????

​Well....that didn't sit too well with me. You're getting to that age where things. . .well. . .(at this point my face had contorted), change. My eye doctor: Sometimes our eyes stop responding well to contacts, so let's just wear your glasses when you drive and while watching TV or things far away.
My family doctor: You need to meditate. Less stress. Relax. Take some CoQ10, magnesium, and be sure that you're taking that blood pressure medicine.

Let's just say that y'all might see the death of an eye doctor and a medical doctor in future books. That age....pft....they can youknowwhat!!!!

Beaches, Bungalows, & Burglaries Chapter One


“A campground?” I gulped back a good hissy fit, because no one could ever underestimate the power of a good hissy fit, something I’ve tried really hard not to do in years. “As in tiny little metal houses and port-a-potties?” ​ “Well, I think they have a toilet in them” said Stanley Shelton, my lawyer. He eased back in his big fancy, wingback leather chair with his elbows resting on the wooden arms and his fingers drumming against each other. The grey pinstriped suit was of the finest materials and the nice crystal cufflinks were the touch it needed that screamed successful lawyer. “I think the toilet is small, but you’re small.” He rubbed his hand over his bald head and then proceeded to draw his hand over his mustache and beard. ​ I tried as hard as I could to keep it together, but my composure was under attack. ​ “What about my house in the Hamptons? I’ll just go there.” I let out a sigh of relief. It was a perfect plan. “I’m desperately going to miss the New York City apartment, …
