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.

What's Not that New and a Gaggle of Geese

What's new?  I didn't do anything exciting last weekend.  I went to our work picnic.  For the most part I was bored as I haven't acquired any good friendships yet.  I did have an interesting talk about scrap booking retreats with one gal.  Oh the food was good, we played mini golf and the kids had a blast.  But, I was alone.

We've been having morning visitors this week, a gaggle of geese!
No, I don't have a cemetery in my back yard, but a field does separate us.  They are quiet neighbors (the residents of the cemetery that is)
and I loved having the field when my son was young!

Wish I could say work is going better.  Just when I think it is, I make stupid mistakes and am reprimanded again.  I don't know how much or how long they will put up with me.  All I know is that I am very frustrated with myself.  That would explain the throbbing headache I had when I got home yesterday.

I went through a period of thinking "Just one more time.....if you tell me what a bad job I am doing one more time, I'll quit." thankfully it got better, but after 15 years I still make stupid mistakes.
