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.

A Quiet Weekend and Blessed Monday

I had a quiet weekend.  I sorted my papers for scrapbooks and am looking forward to next week end's scrap booking retreat!  We did our taxes and that was the high light! (NOT!  Much tension ensued). Later I made burritos for supper.  My stupid tortillas kept ripping but they were yummy.
I missed church again.  I have been feeling really awful in the morning with sinus headache and pain.
I am not going to Jazzercise this morning.  Instead, I am going to curl my hair, dress nice and meet my friends for lunch and a movie!  The Senior Center is showing  The Butler.  May as well eat lunch there:  meatloaf!  (I will have to go visit Mom tomorrow.)
Recently I made an easy peasy recipe:  Crock pot Chicken
Put the boneless chicken breasts in crock pot.  Sprinkle with Paprika and Lemon Pepper and Salt.
(I didn't have paprika or lemon pepper but it turned out fine)  Mix one can of Cream of Mushroom Soup and 1 cup of Sour Cream.  Pour over chicken breasts.  Add fresh mushrooms or canned.
Cook on low 8 hours.  Serve with noodles or rice.
I am amazed at the response to my last post about my cousin!  What did I do right?

Have a blessed Monday!

As to your last post- I think people like to hear about things that connect us and the vintage picture was wonderful. xo Diana
