About Me

My photo
I have spent a great deal of my life battling illness. I suffered from Crohn's Disease and eventually had abdominal surgery, thwarting the Crohn's and budding cancer cells. Since my surgery in 1995 I have been relatively free from Crohns', although I had several subsequent surgeries related to my ileostomy..When my disease was in remission, I don't think my husband realized how bad it could get, but he has stood by me. I also have suffered from various autoimmune disorders and am diagnosed with Stage IV Kidney Disease. Fortunately, I am maintaining and do not need dialysis at this point. We adopted our son and later found out he had cerebral palsy, so he became my career. Dan has had two surgeries and tons of therapy and is able to walk because of it. He is a college graduate and is employed as an Information Specialist. We are very proud of his accomplishements. I am now part of the retired generation and still getting used to the idea. I do enjoy crafting, traveling and being with family and friends. I am active in my church and feel that the hardships we endure are there to build our faith. I like to live life in the "now" as we never know how much time is left.

Morning with Coffee

My sister isn't home so having my coffee without our morning phone conversation.  Actually, I woke up really, REALLY, early!  Couldn't get back to sleep, so my bed is made, I've had several cookies and finally made some scrambled eggs.

I need to lose weight....but it is SO hard!  I love to eat...everything and double portions.  Okay, I'm about 25 pounds overweight.  Enough that I need new clothes.   Enough that when I tried pants on yesterday I couldn't zip the zipper!  What was really horrifying is when hubby groped me in the dark and mistook my flabby belly for another body part!  YIKES!  God help me.

Well, enough of that!  Am I going to lose weight?  Change my wayward ways?  I doubt it, but if so, cheer me on.  We can cheer each other on!

Have to run my son to the superstore this morning and pick up snacks (his) among other things.  Tonight we are going to my first ever football game.  I've only watched on TV.  It is supposed to be hot and humid but will try and stay hydrated.

Watched QVC last night....I am a sucker for "one time only's" and "easy pay."  Yes, I did make a purchase of hydrating mineral veil.
