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.

This week

I tried to use "snow" as a background to my blog page, but that was just too depressing and cold!  Got enough of that here in Wisconsin.

I had to change to Google Chrome to change my template.  Arghhh!

I joined Weight watchers Online.  I lost 1.8 pounds last week.  I thought it was more, but it must have been a glitch in my scale.  I have to cut down on the cookies!

My mother decided that Christmas is over and wants her stuff removed from her room, so that's on the agenda today.  My stuff is still all up, but I suspect it will come down this week.

I bought my tickets for Florida!  I am so excited.  I don't care if we don't do anything special.  I just want to relax!  My sister is joining me and we are going the first week in April.  I don't know how she is going to sleep, but that is her problem.  We will be sharing a double sofa bed.  I can sleep anywhere, but she can't.
She will  have to sleep by the pool!

My Christmas mess!

I have been using Chrome for quite some time.
If it's a contest my Christmas mess is worse than yours.
You'll have a great time in Florida.

Good luck cleaning up the Christmas mess-although it doesn't look too messy to me! And I am glad you are set for Florida- xo Diana
