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.

emoticon just dropping by to wish you a WONDERFUL Wednesday. Thank you for the new walking shoes with the amazing message! I love your background picture!

I also want to share with you a quote by Steve Young:

“The principle is competing against yourself. It's about self-improvement, about being better than you were the day before”

So, remember, all you have to do today is something that is better than the day before! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Kyleigh is doing great, thanks for asking. She's growing but still looks like a doll as she's so small, I'm thinking she's going to be petite like her mom was. I hope you are doing well, sure miss chatting with you. I'm staying busy right now with work, church & family so it' s a rat race some days.

~~~Live & Laugh~~~
Laugh your heart out,
Dance in the rain.
Cherish the moment
Ignore the pain.
Live, laugh, love,
Forgive & forget
Life's too short to be
Living with regrets.

Thought I'd stop by with a smile emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
And brighten up your Wednesday for awhile. emoticon emoticon emoticon
~~~HAPPY WEDNESDAY~~~
