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.

I just want to beat on the drum all day!

"I don't wanna work, I just wanna beat on the drum all day!"  Yesterday at work was VERY stressful.  It continues to get worse.  More work thrown at us and less people to do it.  If I could afford it, I would quit.  I had panic attacks, chest pain, nausea, stomach aches, couldn't sleep worth a darn last night.  Ughhh!

I cleaned off the top of my pool table last weekend and sorted out my crafting supplies, so when my husband finally moves furniture down in the basement, and puts up my storage unit, I can get at organizing!

Speaking of....did you just ever get a mood where you don't care if you craft or not?  Maybe things will get better if I ever get my crafting space back!

I hope you get you craft space back very soon, it's sounds like you're going through a hard time right now and I know how de-stressing crafting can be! I feel your pain about being the only woman in the house, I'm supposed to be moving in with my boyf soon but I keep reconsidering just because I have to nag him and be the grown up so much. I keep telling him he's older and I didn't sign up to date a man child lol. I think you should stay on a strike, I see this with my dad as well. They're too used to their moms and wives doing everything for them that they don't even make an effort!

Wish I had some good advice about work.........but I don't. I think you don't feel crafty b/c of all the stress.....but it wouild get your mind off of it. When your basement gets 'back in order' (does that ever happen? not in my experience) hopefully you will WANT to craft.
