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.

Sunday Fun!

Yesterday I went with my bff to my favorite store, Archiver's.  We learned how to make rosettes.  Then, I had to buy the scoring board so I can make them at home!  I can't wait to get my stuff together to make them.  We also signed up for a class on how to make paper flowers on cards in April.

Later, we went to Olive Garden.  I have been craving Olive Garden for months!  Pear Gorgonzola and Shrimp!  Yum!  My friend ordered the parmesan encrusted tilapia....also yummy!  Then we had to have (although we were stuffed) the Tiramisu Dolcini  (a little tiramisu).  What a lovely day!
