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.

It was a Challenge

Yesterday my bff and I went to a garden fair. Naturally, it had all things to do with gardening on sale. Now, I didn't have alot of money, but it was something to do and a beautiful WARM day! Woo hoo!

My bff bought a metal sculpture of a parasol that holds plants. Difficult to describe. She also bought a plant as she is the gardener and I'm just a onlooker.

There were Miche bag shells on sale for my Miche bag. A Miche bag is a bag that has interchangeable coverings/shells to change the look without changing the contents of the whole bag. These are something I felt I had to have and bought on Ebay some time ago. I haven't used my Miche bag yet because it is so large! Well, since clearing out my shoes and purses, I decided to pass up the sale and use the Miche bags that I have. That was a challenge. "Will I use it, do I have to have it, can I afford it?"

My bff and I did have to buy some sea salt hand scrub which made our hands sooooooo soft and young looking. Remember, I have old hands!

I just recently learned of the Miche Bag and wrote a post on it for the local newspaper. After you have used it for awhile, let us know what you really think of it. I am curious to see if women would really give up buying other purses!

If you use the Miche bag and love it you'll be able to find more covers for it.
