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.

Exasperated, Tired and Bored

 I wrote for blog today.  I accidentally clicked on the window, and poof!  It's gone!  Dork Award!

Got ready for work, but something seemed amiss.  I checked my work email.  I don't work today!  Dork Award!

I joined a gym.  On my third visit I was on the stretching machine and cracked a rib.  Dork Award!  It hurts too much to clean of course.

Went to a 50th birthday party the other night and watched Packer football.  The Packers won!  We were going to go to the casino but I was the designated driver.  I don't like driving at night, so no casino.  I did buy a pair of sandals on Ebay.  They are normally over $100, but I got them for $26 with the shipping.

I really should clean.  The dust in the Boop Room (home to my computer) is calling me.  At least I could write my name in it.  The trouble with collectables is you have to dust them!  Ughhh!  Maybe I can tune it out?


These are old pics.  Don't have that desk, don't have that TV, monitor or printer, but do have LOTS of Boops!

love the background. Did you check your drafts (for your lost post), posts are automatically saved as you type. That happens to me sometimes too.
