Hello and welcome to my page! If you couldn't guess, my name is Cathy.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. :-))

August 2017 - We moved back to Colorado!! So happy to be back in my home state and to be near family again.

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.

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.

    Hi dear Friend,

    I had a few hours free today, not needed by Bradyn or his parents (well, they could use a break, but I'm exhausted, too, and need a few hours "off"). I have little time to Spark, but took Kay's blog advice (SimpleLife4Real) and am at least spinning the wheel and huddling with my 3 teams. I hope to make time to get back to reading more blogs, too. First, though, I'm working on the direction of our SoulCollage teams. I'm so glad to see you are doing well. Beautiful background pictures! Thanks for stopping by my blogs, and for your general support. Love, Sue

    Hi there,
    I found your spark page because you were friends w/someone on one of my spark teams. Your profile said you missed CO. and it caught my eye. Yes it is very expensive, unfortunately my family can't stay here forever either, unless we don't want to get ahead financially, lol. I live in Brighton, my mom is south of the metro area and I don't like the 45 minute drive. Especially with all the lovely CO. traffic and lovely drivers, NOT! They never heard of using their signal when they cut in front of you. Have a nice weekend!
