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.

What a Girl Needs, What a Girl Wants!

Been an uneventful week of work and laundry.  Was so happy to get up in the wee hours Sunday to go to the airport.  So thankful that they didn't have the scanner set up and I didn't  have the pat down.  It always is so embarrassing to me.  Love to people watch in the airport.  The flight was fine.  It wasn't full so, I got a refill of Coke and cookies!  Woo hoo!

Got to Florida and it was HOT!  First thing...jacket, shoes and socks come off!  Did a bit of shopping...mostly craft supplies...like I need more, but I get caught up in the fever.  Went to a couple of other shops, but mostly just looked.  Had lunch outdoors at the Fish Company.  Enjoyed a cup of clam chowder and a crab cake sandwich.  I think I could eat seafood every day! 

Relaxed at my cousins, just visiting and catching up.  Watched The Oscars and crafted....(it's a surprise).

Today the plan is to lay by the pool and get tan.  Saw a cute sign by the airport in Wisconsin,  "You never hear of windchill lotion!"  With that in mind, I will enjoy my book, the sun, and a lounge chair!

Let me see........I had an arguement with J b/c he wouldn't even take a taste of the yogurt that didn't have the right color cover. Then I folded a ton of laundry......got all my things done for church (except the money bags), watched TV....a lazy winter day. No, I am not jealous of the pool, No, I am not....no, I am not...am I convinced yet????? LOL
