I had the Red Hat picnic on Tuesday night. It was uneventful for me. I had made the centerpieces and a few of us decorated the gym (it rained...our first rain out in 6 years). The food was good. We played some games. It was okay.
Wednesday through today I work. Nothing new there!
Tomorrow is my great niece's third birthday. I will be sure to take pictures. I feel very close to her mom (my niece) as she feels a connection to our family because of her mom. Her mom (my sister) died when she was 32. My niece was 7 then. Anyway, that's as clear as mud. I will be sure to take pictures!
I am considering discontinuing the blog. I am not a writer. I don't even have anything interesting to say. Maybe I just need a break. I am not looking for compliments or anything. I just don't know what and how to write. Maybe I will write about my son, or growing up. Who knows?
- 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.
