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.

....and Life Goes On

TGIF!  I get paid today!  I get to work with my favorite coworker today....woo hoo!

An update:  I did work out on Wednesday, I did clean (not my basement), got our taxes done,  and I did eat too many cookies again and still.  I am a cookie junkie.

The weather has been warm this week, showing hints of green, but also the black, muddy ice/snow that is left.  Not to worry.  The weather is getting colder and 3"-7" are expected of new snowfall.  Oh yay....glad I go to Florida in a week and a half.

Hubby had some stocks from an accident he suffered when he was younger.  He made good investments and is going to sell some so we can get our heads above water again.  Nothing extravagant, just pay bills, buy groceries, etc.  Anyway, it gives a person hope.

That's my exciting life.  Don't know what I'm doing this weekend.  What are YOU doing?
