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.

Pack it all In; Pack it all Up!

Ah, last day of vacation.  Sniff, sniff..  I will miss my cousin and of course, the beautiful weather, but it's time.  I miss my family, my friends, my home.

Yesterday I did laundry, as my cousin had to work and will be leaving on a trip for conference the same time I leave to go home.  Time is of the essence.  She has to pack, color her hair, etc.  I have to pack, go to the pool one last time, etc.

We went to Joe's Crab Shack last night which is kind of our tradition.  What a wonderful time, and wonderful food! Then we went to Walmart for some essentials, which included another pair of sandals for me, cause they were comfortable and cute.

I am almost finished with my button necklace.  It will be nice to post all my pics.  Meanwhile, enjoy the day!
