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. :-))

My husband and I make video games for a living from our home. We work well together and love that we get along so ...
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.

Merry Christmas Cathy,

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
What shall I wish you for Christmas?
This season of joy and delight
The sound of carolers
On a starlit night?

What can I wish you for Christmas?
What is the thing you desire?
Is it health, wealth, or happiness
Or the warmth of a Christmas fire?
What can I wish you for Christmas?

To give you all the joy I am able?
A merry time with a good true friends
Around the fare of a Christmas table?
So much I would wish you for Christmas
Yet only my greeting I send
For all that I have to offer
Is the sincere heart of a friend...

With every good wish..
For the Christmas season
MERRY CHRISTMAS, MY FRIEND
