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 Little Sad

I had a horrible work evaluation.  How does one react when they don't trust their fellow coworkers anymore.  I sulked a bit....well, more than a bit.  But now I am over it and am focusing on what
I need to improve upon.  I am putting it all in the Lord's hands.  I can try my best, but if it is not enough, then let the cards fall where they may.

My heart goes out to those in the Connecticut massacre.  This has become an evil world we live in.

My bff is feeling stressed about having Christmas at her house.  I wish I could help my bff, but with my work schedule, visiting Mom, and the other things I need to do, I wouldn't know where to begin.  I know my friend.  Somehow it all falls into place and everything will be lovely.

My sister feels all alone (she is). My sister and I are baking cookies today, after I go visit Mom.

I need to wrap presents yet, clean the house, although we aren't having anyone over, I like a clean house for the holidays.

How are YOU doing?

Sounds like a bit of stress in your life. I am sorry about the work evaluation. I hate when things like that happen. Any chance you can look for a different job?
Have fun baking with your sister- I wish my ovens were working- xo Diana

do you have time off between Christmas and New Year? You need to de-stress, as you do sound stressed.
