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.

Shopping, cookies and life.

Yesterday I was power shopping....still looking for that Easter outfit.  I tried on a dress and looked awful.  One top is too small, the next size up too large!  Argh!  Maybe I should take  everything I bought back and start from square one.  Maybe I will just wear what I already own.  Good idea!

Cookie addiction:  I had two cookies this morning.  I want more and yet, I must resist.  I eat them by twos so they could easily become eight and ate.

Today I am to help with our Lenten dinner.  We are making chicken soup and the person in charge is making it totally different than I do.  I'll just do it her way.  I don't have to like it.  I am a good soldier and can follow orders.

Tonight is our Red Hat dinner.  I am the Queen, so I best get going and write up the agenda.

Have a beautiful day!  The sun is shining here!
