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.

My Terrible Addiction

I am addicted to slots.  Not, that I have to take my paycheck and run to the nearest casino, but it is hard for me to NOT go to a casino when it's near, and even harder NOT to spend all the money that I have with me.  (I do not bring my whole wallet, thank God).  I even borrow money from hubby to try and chase after that which I have lost.  Sunday I won  a bunch, and yesterday we went on a casino bus trip.  I lost it all.  It's a losing proposition for me and I should have more brains than that, but brains has nothing to do with it.  It's like my addiction to cookies.  I know I gain weight from eating so many cookies, that is my brain working, but my want is for more cookies.

The casino bus trip:  Not only is it a stupid idea for the above reason, I am too young to go with these folks.  Then, someone put reserved on all the seats so hubby and I sat in the back by the bathroom which was out of commission (thank God!).  It could have been worse.  The cackling of the old women, the play by play of all the cheapest places to eat, ....are we headed in that direction?

Lunch was good.

Hubby isn't painting now.  Somehow, he talked himself out of the job.  Nice, huh?  My living room is so big.  It is a daunting proposition.   He is getting ready for his trip to golf with the guys in Arizona.  No time for painting.  Well, it might have to be another time cause my living room is so early 90's!  If it had hair, it would have big hair.
