Loving relationship with my husband for 32 years.  Mom to 2 amazing children 23 and 16.  Worked as a claims fraud investigator for 25 years and quit last year..yahoooo!  Started a cake decorating home based business a few months ago and loving it.  Also have a great shih tzu dog Winston and just brought home a new puppy yesterday.  

All in all, I have a great life filled with love, boating, camping, travelling and cozy family time at home.  Lots of friends and get along great with my family and in-laws.

Not so great would be that I’ve been battling with health issues for the past 7 years. It took 3 yrs to ‘discover’ endometriosis for which I had 4 surgeries to get rid of but this brought on all kinds of anxiety issues, IBS and transformed me from a ‘go getter’ type to ‘I’m afraid to leave my house too far or too long‘. I suffer from excruciating stomach cramps that last anywhere between a few minutes to a few hours...almost daily. Don’t believe it’s IBS but after years of searching for help and dozens of doctors, I’ve concluded that this is the body I must live with.    

And last week, my son who is doing great moved out. I knew it was coming because he’d been building his house for the last few months and was pretty sure that I was ok with it but boy oh boy, when saw him carting his stuff out...I broke down.  We have always been a very close family and it feels like we are now ‘broken apart‘.  On the other hand, I am very proud of him.  He is doing great in his career and financially.  His girlfriend that we all love moved in with him.  His new place is amazing and about 3 minutes away. Yet, I still feel sad to not get the ‘good night mom’ or the ‘what’s for dinner’ at the end of the day.  I cried when I left the grocery store Saturday because I would never be buying his favorites anymore.  

Still I’m overall a happy, cheerful person.  I work daily on myself and am grateful for my life.  I try to give back when and however I can and try to make each contact I have with others a nice moment.

That’s about what life’s about in my corner.  Thank you for reading me.  Linda xx
