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.

Good Intentions

I am a master of good intentions.  Trying to lose weight, but I am addicted to cookies.  I binge on cookies.  Argghhhh!  Went to the gym on Monday  (that's good).  Didn't go yesterday. I was going to clean.  Notice the verbage:  "going to."  My sister called and we sat on the phone for over an hour.  What new things do we have to talk about every day?

Today my husband has off.  I won't get to the gym, but am hoping that both of us can get some cleaning done.  My sister is coming over in the afternoon to help me with taxes.  Then, she is staying for dinner.

Will I get the tax returns done?  Will the house get cleaned?  Will I get anything done in the basement?
Will I eat a half of a bag of cookies?  Such an exciting life! 

to be continued.....

one just has to make up her mind to do it...at least that is what I keep telling myself. Good luck with the cleaning!
