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.

The Rennaissance Faire

Off to the Renaissance Faire in Bristol Wisconsin!  Saturday was a hot and muggy day but we drank a lot of water and soldiered on.
Before we got through the gates we got a "welcome" from the "privy cleaner"

MooNie could walk the tightrope, juggle, and was funny as could be!
Isn't this a fun jungle gym?


The acrobats were enthralling!
 We chatted with the Falconer!
The mud show was fun!
We ended the day with a good joust!

I bet the entertainers really enjoy what they do, especially the guys who partake in the mud fights. LOL

I love this, when I lived in Minnesota I would go every year to the renaissance festival in Shokopee (Spelling). So glad you had a great day!

This fair looks like fun, I like anything with horses :). This is my first visit here and I like your "about me" philosophy you share.
