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.

Monday Muses and Moans

Today was just a bad day.  Hubby overslept.  One  nephew got grumpy with me.  
My nieces and nephews need prayers and I can't help but get heartbroken over their circumstances.  I love them as though they were my own children. ( Thank God my son and hubby aren't giving me any heartache.)

Had a headache most of the day (see above).  

Another friend's Facebook remark hurt my feelings.  I don't know if I am misunderstood or not, but I think I should give up Facebook but I never do.
  It just causes so much drama and hurt.

It hurts my feelings when no one comments on my blog.  Still, I keep plugging away.  (It's therapy)

Was it the gloom and the rain today?

So, ON THE BRIGHT SIDE:  My son helped me with dinner and clearing the table.  (He's learning...
My husband just stayed out of my way).

Tomorrow I am going to go see The One Hundred  Foot Journey starring Helen Mirren.  I am looking forward to that.

Note to Self:  Think twice about going to a baseball game on a school bus.  My sister and I went to see the Milwaukee Brewers yesterday with a church group.  A nice bag lunch was provided, but boy was my butt sore from that bouncy bus!  (The Brewers won!)

Sorry I don't always leave you messages. I just have not been a happy camper for awhile. Fight happened in this household the other week. My car is no longer and I will never be able to get one ever again.I just have not been with it. Could be because I have too many health issues going on and multiple Dr. appts. every week.

At least the Brewers won. Imagine how much more sore your butt would be if they had lost!

We all have ups and downs. We just have to put the bad in the background and concentrate on what makes us happy. Do something you enjoy. Don't expect lots of comments on your blog unless it is very specialized and you have 100's of followers....people read but most do not comment. Sometimes I am just too lazy or don't know what to say.

We've been in doctors offices and the Vet's office yesterday and today. I guess every day can't be fun.

That looks like a movie I would like. We're watching Raising Helen tonight and she is in that movie, too. It's one of my favs. Have you seen it? Hugs, Diane
