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.

Just a short rest....

Well, looks like I'm back already!  Did you miss me....LOL! (that's what I always say).

I have been thinking and worrying. 

Things that wake me up at night:


1.  The presidential election.  No matter which party gets in, this country is in a God awful mess and that is the one thing that has become clear during this campaign.  How anyone will fix it remains vague.

2.  What will I pack for my New Orleans trip?  Will I feel sleepy and bus sick.  Does it pay for me to go to Harrah's casino, or should I save my money.  (I think I should go with the latter).  I have a bit of a gambling problem, and would be afraid that I would dip into my food money if left there for four hours!

3.  When am I going to start my ornaments?  I signed up for an ornament exchange and now I have to make 12 of them!  Yikes!  I have all the supplies, so don't want to back out.

4.  I need more time.  Time to spend with Mom, time to clean, time to visit friends, etc.  Could someone please stop the clock?

On a Good Note:

I found 3 pretty tees for my trip yesterday.  Layering will be the way to go.  Will post pics later.

you can't trust any politician as at the end of the day they are working on their own agenda not the general publics!!!
