One step and one day at a time

Hello and welcome to my page! If you couldn't guess my name is Cathy. My husband and I are from the Colorado Springs area of Colorado. We sold our home in Colorado and bought 13 acres of forested land on the edge of the Mark Twain National Forest here in southern Missouri. We don't have any children other than our cockatiels that we call our feathered puppies. :-))

Hello and welcome to my page! If you couldn't guess my name is Cathy. My husband and I are from the Colorado Springs area of Colorado. We sold our home in Colorado and bought 13 acres of forested land on the edge of the Mark Twain National Forest here in southern Missouri. We don't have any children other than our cockatiels that we call our feathered puppies. :-))

My husband and I make video games for a living from our home. We work well together and love that we get along so well that we can stand to be with each other 24/7. lol

Life has dealt me plenty of punches starting with my first surgery at the age of 5. At 9 I had a brain tumor removed that damaged my right optic nerve and destroyed my pituitary gland. As a result I'm legally blind in my right eye and have to take medicines for the rest of my life to make my body function normally. I've had multiple surgeries and broken bones over the years since then but I will not let anything stop me from becoming a better me physically and mentally.

I'm eating according the Fast Metabolism Diet. It's been a life saver for me. I finally found an eating plan that is helping me to shed unwanted pounds of fat from my body. Thanks to my virtual Spark Mom, FLORIDASUN, for blogging about how much success she had eating according to the Fast Metabolism Diet! If she had never blogged about her success I would have never tried it.

Never look for a good face; emoticon
it will turn old one day. emoticon
Never look for a good skin,
it will wrinkle one day. emoticon
Never look for a hot body,
it will change one day. emoticon
Never look for nice hair,
it will turn white one day. emoticon
Instead, look for a loyal heart
that will love every day. emoticon

Cathy, I think we all had a good time. We are already talking about a return visit after New Year's. Next time we will spend the night instead of making it a one day trip.
