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.

Strange Dreams and Other Stuff

Last night I had a "full length" dream.  It had a beginning, a middle and a conclusion!  Strange little details:  I was shopping for awesome shoes, got drunk (I don't drink), started smoking for the weekend....  Anyway, I digress.  We were away for the weekend and I was not with Jim.  We were taking a separation.  I was at this weekend type of party and could choose between an old boyfriend (why him?) who made it clear that it might not work out, another guy who was interested, and then Rob Lowe who I got to make out with!....I think he just wanted to get into my pants....LOL.  The long and short of it is that I wanted my Jim.  He might be boring, but I love him.  I didn't want to make out with Rob Lowe or anyone else.  I just wanted Jim.  Weird, huh?

Been having writer's block, so whenever you see jokes, that's what's going on.

I shouldn't eat.  I can't lose weight.  I don't like the healthy foods.  I don't like to exercise!  Maybe I will start walking again or have hubby get my bike down?  I am debating if I should get rid of all size medium clothing.  Will I ever be smaller again?  I have no more storage space.  I should just have clothing in my closet that I actually wear and that fits.

I am still tired all the time.  Probably cause I am overweight, don't exercise and don't like fruits and vegetables (they don't like me...roughage).

Looks like the sun is trying to shine again today!

I've been having awful anxiety dreams about my daughter going on the trans atlantic crossing but the dreams aren't about her they are about me going to join her & hubby in Antigua & he is with someone new !!!

Tiny changes can help, I've lost weight by making cuts here & there but not too drastic !
