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.

Just Another Weekend in Paradise!

I woke up Saturday morning at 3:30 a.m.   Yes, you got it right!  I had sinus and a headache, so I stayed up and watched all the T.V. shows that I had missed last week on the P.C.  Well, of course, my sleep schedule is thown way off.  I did laundry with napping in between.

Last night we went out to eat.  Our son picked up the tab and tip!  Woo hoo.  My sister joined us.  I told her their sirloin was sooooooooo good.  Well, last night, not so much.  First her steak came over done.  They gave her a new one.  Next, both of our steaks had cords running through them so bad that there was alot of waste.  Anyway, they took $$ off our bills!  Woo hoo.  Still, will be a while before I have the steak again.

Today I HAVE to get at my basement craft area. Ever since we painted, it has been in disarray. I would love to be able to sit and relax in that space again. When it is done, I will post the before and after pics....but here is a hint.
