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.

A few Thoughts

I sing, I hum, I can't help it.  Sometimes it is because I am happy, sometimes it is to sooth me.  I sing quietly to myself, but I guess it annoys some people.  I do it unconsciously, but I guess it if is because I am happy, I don't want to quit.  If it is because I am nervous, I don't want to quit.  Could there be worse habits?  I don't want to annoy people, but I can't help it; it's like a tick.

Did you have a good Mother's Day?  I did.  I enjoyed spending time with my family and having my Mother with us another year!  I didn't get any cards, but did get a present from my son.  My husband is painting the living room this week.  He said that is my present and it works for me.


Birthday Flowers
 Another work week.  It is getting better, but there are still changes all the time!  Oh well, I'll adapt!

I am sure it is not a seriously annoying habit.

I sing all the time too especially when I'm happy. When I've been tired or depressed I realise that I start singing again so must be better !
It can annoy the kids at times
( if I'm singing out in public ! ) but they like a happy mum so put up with it.
Carry on singing - I'm sure you are not annoying & if you are - well there are far worse habits to have !
