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.

Early Morning Musing

They are starting another new process at work.  It is stressfull.  The new year brings new insurance cards and that all has to be entered.  That is not that easy for me.  Too bad I don't buy a lottery ticket and win, I could retire!

I am planning on a trip to Florida to visit my cousin.  It gives me something to look forward to.  Her spare room is being used for storage, so I have to sleep on the couch, but I don't care.  I just want to get away!  The airfare is not so bad in April and we could celebrate our birthdays!

It is very cold....near zero with the wind chill.  Time to bundle up!

Hubby is taking Dan and me out this Saturday night.  I don't know where we will go....the mall to return some things.  Maybe a good restaurant!

I cannot upload a picture from blooger!  Anyone else have this problem?

Maybe you should start thinking about retirement! Work just seems very stressful for you.

I am sorry you are so stressed at work- no fun at all! What fun to look forward to a FL trip. I have heard from a half dozen bloggers that they can't upload anything- I think it is a blogger issue- xo Diana
