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.

Ah, what to Write

Ah, what does one write about when she no longer works or hasn't taken any pictures?
Life has been uneventful.  I think that's a good thing?  My lumpectomy breast tissues was nothing more than what it was on the biopsy, and that was dysplasia.
Went with my bff to see her sister's "new" house.  Very nice spaces and has so much potential and a lot of yard!  The important thing is that sister is very happy with her boyfriend and son and I am so happy for her too.  Bff and I went thrift shopping.  Shopping changes when one doesn't have an income!  I did find a pretty blouse that looked very good on me and a pair of earrings.  There was a little drawer thingy, but I didn't buy it and now wish I had although I forgot what my plans for it were.
My sister and I took my mom to the cemeteries where her oldest children and parents are buried.
We had to go out to lunch first and enjoyed our split pea and ham soup.  Our lunches were so-so.
The gravy needed seasoning beyond what salt and pepper could do.  They do have the best home made bread though.
I have no plans for this weekend.  It has been rather gloomy and cool here by the lakeshore.
Again, my plans are dictated by lack of money.  I will go visit my mom.  I also want to buy some silk flowers for next year's visit to the cemeteries as they are on sale now.  I might stop and a few yard sales.



That is good news about your test!
Have a nice weekend! Maybe you will find some treasures at the garage sales!
