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 Coulda Been a Contender!

Maybe this sounds vain, but I was going to enter a modeling contest for "real" women.  Hey, I'm real!
I thought I looked pretty good before church Sunday, so had Jim take my pic in my new Christopher Banks  jacket.  I hate that I'm so busty and actually think I looked better in person.  Jim is no photographer!  Blame the camera! Blame the photographer!  Anyway, the contest was closed before I got a chance to submit my photo and story.

This week I worked a few days in Peds which is fun.  Will have a nice paycheck when you add that to my regular hours.  Unfortunately I spent it already.  I have a bit of a gambling problem, which applies to Ebay as well.  I bid on a Miche bag with two shells and won them!  Yikes!  I didn't think I would win and now I have to pay.


The shells go on with magnets.  Can a girl have too many purses?  I got two new ones for Christmas.  I was instructed to model one at work this week and will take pics then.  Well, I have to deposit some money so I can pay for my purchase.  Let's just call this last one my Christmas present to me.  Or was that the massage package?  Aunt Vi gave me $1000 and it's going like crazy!  Maybe I'm just crazy.

my hubby does well buying & selling boat bits on ebay - strange shaped packages arrive all the time. He even bought a loo !

You look nice in that pic. I hate being busty too - people are so rude. men / women think they have the right to comment if you a bit bigger in the bust area. One friend exclaimed " God you're really BUXOM " ( well thanks for that) I don't go around saying " Gosh you have a totally flat chest !" I think I'm curvey
