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.

Good Intentions

Did you ever have one of those days filled with good intentions, but followed your heart instead?
Yesterday I was supposed to clean.  Now, I don't know how clean my house has to be for I have family, children and birthday cake here this Sunday to celebrate my Mom's birthday today.  Make sense?  Okay, I should clean the bathroom!

Plan B:  Bff calls and asks if I'd like to go out for breakfast.  Well, twist my arm, sure I do!  We enjoyed a leisurely breakfast, went to a couple of thrift stores and a rummage sale!  I got some body jewels (to use in crafting), some Halloween bags, and a little stationary set for a gift.  Also got my hippie hichie beads for my Halloween outfit.


After that I played on the computer a bit, took a nap, and then went to Kohl's before picking up my son from work.  Got a cute Dana Buchman top and a pair of teal shoes that were only $13 and some change.  HAD to have them!


 
Today is the day I have to clean.  Sweep, clean the bathroom.  Son can vacuum and dust the living room.  We'll get'er done!
