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.

It Pays to be a B**ch!

My hubby says I make a good b**ch!  On Sunday my plane was late in leaving from Florida, so I missed my connecting flight.  Had to stay in the airport in Atlanta for over 5 hours.  The truth is, if those of us with connecting flights would have been able to depart the aircraft first, we would have made it!  I had a meltdown....I cried, I sobbed, I couldn't stop.  (next time I wear waterproof mascara).  Anyway, that's for another post.

Today I called the airline and told them my complaints and what I felt the airline could have done to prevent our missing our connection.  (I was traveling alone, but wasn't the only one going back to Wisconsin).  The compensated me for my inconvenience by giving me a free flight to be used within a year.  Guess I'll have to go to Florida again!

It's not being a b*tch, it is standing up for yourself!

At least you have a ticket!
Did you get the waterproof mascara?
