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've lost my marbles....and other items.

I am good at "losing" or misplacing things.....all  in the name of keeping it in a safe place.  Once I lost my favorite and most expensive necklace.  It showed up after a year and a half in my suitcase.  Lately I have lost some money set aside for a Halloween party that our Red Hat group is attending.  Where is it?
I've looked high and low.  I even lost the list of who paid that was with it.  The other day I lost my keys.
I left them in hubby's car, in a "safe" place.  Where are my marbles?  Do you know?  Have you lost your marbles yet?

It must be genetic as my mother lost her hearing aid for years and found it last night in the linen closet!

Mirror, mirror on the wall,
I've become my mother
after all!
