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 Much Better Week

This has been a much better week, nothing exciting, but better.  I am not sure what was different about it, but it was.
 
Last Thursday I volunteered at the Senior Center.  I have the first Thursday morning of every month.  I wasn't completely with it as I was really tired that morning, but at least I know they won't fire me!
 
Thursday evening I had a fish dinner compliments of my bff who always seems to be winning radio prizes!  It was very good and the price was right!  Friday night my husband, son, sister and I  went out for a fish fry to The Redwood Inn. (I really like fish!)  It is a very popular place and full of much Packer memorabilia.   Their perch is delicious and one gets a ton of food (next day's lunch).   Again, I forgot to take a picture as I had to dig right in!
 
Saturday I had so much ambition!  I was doing my usual laundry, when I started to clean the basement.  You can now see my craft table!  I also baked a cherry pie.  It boiled all over the oven, and no, I don't have a self cleaning stove!  My hubby cleaned the awful mess for me.
 
Yesterday was just a day of rest for me.  I nice little visit with my bff, and caught up on some sleep!
 
This week will be very busy, so I better remember to take pictures!

Sounds like you had a great weekend, Deb. I have not been to the Redwood Inn in years. They always have GREAT fish dinners.

Have a good week! xo Diana

You are lucky that you are closer to Linda than me or we would fight over that fish dinner. LOL.

Glad that you had a good week! Wow! Cleaning and baking all in one day! Remember back when we did that every day just because we had to?
