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.

Bring Back Boring!

Okay, so I complain about life being boring....well, not so much, but not in a good way.

I went to the dentist with a sensitive tooth. Well, the tooth is decayed down deep by the root, so I need to have it extracted, then go out of town for a root canal, then get a crown on top of that. Hopefully, it will all cost less than $2500. Our dental insurance is not that good. Whose is? Time to take out money out of our home equity. Pretty soon we won't have any equity.

I have to take my car in next week to check to see where the A/C is leaking. Hope that doesn't cost too much.

So, bring back boring!

Today I go to the kidney transplant specialist for a "check up." They just look at my lab results and give me a big bill....lol. At least it will be a time alone for hubby and me.

I got my polka dot dress! It was a deal since I got free shipping, it was off 40% and I still had $9 in gift certificates. I have been in love with navy blue polka dots since I was two and had a navy taffeta dress with polka dots (got to find that picture). Later, I remember my mom had a taffeta skirt with polka dots. Navy, of course. Once I had bought a vintage navy polka dot dress but I "outgrew" it. I got this dress to the tune of about $14 and plan on wearing it to an August wedding.
Poor girl got her head chopped off and wish I had the svelte figure, but no matter, I will feel fabulous in it....can't wait to try it on!
