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.

Rain, Laundry, and Drama Queens

It was a gloomy rainy day.  I thought I would just hunker down and be lazy, spending time on my computer and taking naps.  Yes, plural!  NAPS!   It was that kind of day, that kind of mood.  At least I did some laundry.

I ordered myself some nail lacquer to strengthen my nails which were absolutely destroyed by the gel nails that I had for a few months.  It was not cheap, but costs less than new nails.  Right now they are splitting and breaking below the edge of my finger tips.

Saturday I bought some skinny jeans.  They have an elastic waist!  They will look good with allot of my longer tops.  Hey, I have a bootie!  Deal with it.

My bff was the victim of a drama queen yesterday.  She was actually in tears.  Drama queen accused her of bad mouthing her parents.  She just stated a fact.  It was no big deal.  But my bff was afraid it would be used as another excuse to keep her away from her grandchildren.  DQ doesn't like my bff, she doesn't like BFF's family.  Apparently her dysfunctional family is better than her hubby's dysfunctional family.  Anyway, I was there to support my bff, and tell her not to worry about it. and to consider the source of her pain.  DQ isn't happy unless she has something to bitch about.

Watched the country music awards last night and fell asleep before the end!

I like DQ, not personally, only the initials. You're right - I have never had that much drama in my life before....thinking back, DQ has often been on her phone "he/she said/did that!?" Thanks for the support.
