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.

Would Rather Talk in Person!

I am not a good writer.  I am more of a talker.  I got into trouble on Facebook again (stupid me).
I commented on a friend's post, but she took it the wrong way and got defensive. I got hurt feelings
from her response.  We talked things out and I think we finally came to a resolution as we were talking about her kids when we were done chatting.

I am not going to comment (much) on Facebook anymore.... better to just post inspirational messages, jokes and photos.

So much can be  misinterpreted online. Unfortunately, it is the way of the world!  Chatting, email, texting....

The movie yesterday was so good!  I really enjoyed it.  PLUS, Tuesday is seniors day and you get in for $5 and it was free popcorn Tuesday!

Hubby is home today and then goes out of town for a few days.  I will have to make a good meal.   I hate it when it is just my son and I at home.  I never know what to make for dinner!

Ethnic Fest is this Saturday.  It is supposed to rain.  I hope the meteorologist is wrong!

Facebook can be an addiction that we need to avoid. It's a bad habit, it sucks us away from the real world, it is abused. Face to face is better, agreed.

Glad you enjoyed the movie. Hope you have a nice Saturday.

I have to agree with you on all points! Writing to me doesn't always get the correct message across does it? Sorry about this.
