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.

When Real Life enters your Dreams, it's a Nightmare!

What a warped dream night!  There is some family drama going  on.  It is always the same members of the family, but still feels like it affects me.  My poor departed sister would be so sad, and I am sure she is shaking her head in heaven at the stupidity behind it all.  Anyway, I had a nightmare about it and was quite upset, crying, etc. (in my dream).  Too bad the drama hasn't been resolved.  Wish everyone could just get along.  I HATE it when people I love are at odds.

I had another dream with Star Trek characters in it, but that didn't seem to make any sense at all.

We (ie. hubby) has painted my livng room.  We got new carpet laid too.  Both look rather different than the small samples we looked at.  Oh well, it will grow on me... kind of like a new haircut.  Before this,  I had white walls, rust colored carpeting, wallpaper on one wall, and a border.  Think 80's floral and colors.  It is now a bluish green wall (think the sea) and "wet sand" colored carpeting.  My sofa and tables look great in there; but nothing makes your old chairs look quite so old as new walls and carpet!

The carpet dealer was a chain and a comedy of errors...but I'm not laughing!  They were supposed to put the installation on my financing charge.  They didn't install the strips between the living room and dining room.  I called to complain, and the installation check was voided and put on my charge.  They said they would install the strips....when??????  I will have to call AGAIN!  I would have loved to have gone with the local carpet business, but I wanted the financing as that was the only way I would get new carpet.  I would never be able to save that amount of money without having to make the payments!  (I know, no self discipline).

Once I get everything back in the living room and pictures on the walls, I will share the photos.

family & friends' dramas are so draining & it seems the worry doesn't let up even while asleep.

I am so cross with the cooker repair man - he scratched my new flooring but says he didn't. My word against his so I've let it go.

I'm not sure what I was dreaming the other night but I woke myself up b/c I was screaming (think I was being stabbed), only I was not really screaming.I had to roll over on my side and try to think of something else b/c I was really scared.
