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.

"As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others."

Wine does not make you fat, it makes you lean...

~~~~~~~~ emoticon ~~~~~~~~I WILL~~~~~~~~ emoticon ~~~~~~~~

I will do more than belong.
I will participate.
I will do more than care.
I will help.
I will do more than believe.
I will practice.
I will do more than be fair.
I will be kind.
I will do more than forgive.
I will forget.
I will do more than dream.
I will work.
I will do more than teach.
I will inspire.
I will do more than learn.
I will enrich.
I will do more than give.
I will serve.
I will do more than live.
I will grow.
I will do more than suffer.
I will triumph.
