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.

County Fair Time!

Doing laundry, going through stuff, bringing it up for my upcoming rummage sale.  Oh there is so much more that could go!  I just don't have the energy to sort it all out.  Maybe next year?
 
My sister and I met Mom at the County Fair.  The aides take the residents out for the fair.  We
went through the 4-H building, the Exhibition building (everyone hawking their wares to political views), then we stopped for a fresh hot ham sandwich.  My sister opted for smelt (a very small fried fish).  Oh good, they weren't going back yet!  Time to see the bunnies, chicks and ducks.  The roosters were trying to out do each other with their crows!  We enjoyed teeny weeny donuts, an ice cream cone from the dairy stand and free popcorn!  I was stuffed.  We took Mom past the food
stands, the rides and watched the kids on the "sick" machines and giant slide.  She had another good day.  Sister and I decided that as long as Mom feels good enough, we will take her on an outing once a week.
 
This weekend between laundry I will again work on my rummage sale.  Set up my tables and start bringing things out (up?).  Already put my ad in the paper, but forgot to list the time (when the door is open?)
 
Will set aside Sunday for an outing with my husband.  It is supposed to be very hot and humid.  To go to the Art Fair or up to Door County and a drive along the lake?
