Welcome to our website

I have ignored my page for a long time. I will be slowly updating my page. 

I have a degenerative bone disease along with numerous other problems. I am now on disability. I never thought this would happen to me at 58. I had planned to work until I was 65. I guess the Lord had something else in mind for me. Here's a little of my history.  I have taught school for 10 years-2nd grade and Special Ed. Before that I worked as a Buyer /Planner and in purchasing.

  (2012) My Boston Terrier of 18 years died this morning. It's amazing the effect that a pet and the loss of one can have on your life. 

Thursday: Well, I went to WalMart to return a box of dogfood that hadn't been opened. That was sad. :( . 

 I have 4 grown children and eight grandchildren and a special needs cat named Greasy. 

I'm trying my best to win some Christmas gifts. One way or another I'll have Chistmas for my family-which included 4 grown children & spouses and 9 grand children. 

Well, I went to the doctor today. I have got to take some very expensive medicine. I'm really worring how long I'll be able to take it. This has really been a rough 2 years. and it's not getting any easier. Add 2 years later things have worsened. 

My medical issues continue to grow I had a T score of-3.6 on a bone density. I'm now on medication that is 158.00 a month. This is a BAD thing! I was told not to drive because of my hands. That'sgoing to be tough on me.

I'm having a terrible time with my hands. The nerve issues makes typing next to impossible.  

10-2  Well another trip to the doctor. She gave me 4 injections un my back and neck. She also trpblesd one med and doubled another. I am limited to driving in our little town. I have to use a cane now, but I'm still moving. One way or another, I will not be a person who sits in a chair and in the house 24-7, 

10-6 I  just enter a contest to win Holy sheets at Coffee for Mom. I hope I'm lucky. 

I love to read , sew, and crochet. I'm started a area for my reviews. I love to write them! It has to be the teacher in me. Sometimes I read 2 books a night.
