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.

Rogers Street Days

Friday night I went with my bff and her grandson to Rogers Street Days.  The old fishing village is on Rogers Street in Two Rivers, Wisconsin.  The museum was closed but there was music and food.  We went there for the fried smelt.  Left early in the evening so it wasn't that busy. 

The top of this light house is very old, and has the history of the
Coastguard  on the Great Lakes, especially in Two Rivers.

I've been to two rivers, I lived in Minnesota and often trekked in to Wisconsin...Oh what I wouldn't give for some cheese curds!

I just love Two Rivers! It is such a quaint and lovely little town. It is sad to see that big old factory closed down though- xo Diana
