Let’s Party #44

Hey hey, who’s ready for a Party?

The move is underway! We started on Thursday with the movers bringing all the boxes from the BIG storage unit. We left the bedroom set, office desk and chair and my awesome favorite console table. Those will be donated to Faith Farm if I can ever get them to schedule a pickup.

We still have the smaller unit which Jamie moved most of his stuff out last weekend to his new place.

I feel like I climbed a thousand flights of stairs and picked up a million pounds of stuff. But things are getting put away slowly. We still have to finalize our inspections which is a little bothersome in that my stuff keeps getting moved out again to the main living room floor. We don’t have a refrigerator (original one was damaged and now there’s a whole new issue) but we have a cooler with ice and can I just tell you how I’m looking forward to a home cooked meal! Not soon enough!

We had TWO links last week … one of which was mine. I missed my timing and look what happens! But the good news is my Chicken Piccata was shared to numerous sites and has been a favorite so thank you!

Let’s Party #43!

Hey! Are you ready for another Party?? I am!

Mark had his first treatment of Taxol … not sure yet how he really felt afterwards as it was a crazy busy week with the condo project … he was tired and up early every morning and gone til at least 7pm 3 of the 5 nights …

This week brings a LOT of new excitement: appliances and bedroom furniture items are being delivered … movers are bringing our warehouse boxes in to the condo … I hope to be sleeping in our new place come this weekend! Fingers crossed! So far, we’ve had a few snags: refrigerator damaged so that will be delivered on Friday, microwave sticks out way further than normal so that corner cabinet door needs re-worked to be able to open all the way and so on …

We had some AWESOME shares last week and I’m so glad you all are coming back each week to check in and share!

My rules are super simple: make it yours, keep it simple and link directly to the post you are sharing. A link back to the Party and visiting other party-goers is strongly encouraged!

Hi! Are you ready to Party?!

I’ve missed the last few parties. it’s just been a little crazy busy … but never too busy to take a quick picture of the office puppy!

Mark will go in this morning to start a new regime of chemo for the esophageal cancer. He hasn’t had anything for a month and can certainly tell … feels like the Tumor is growing with the additional discomfort he’s been feeling. Being that this type of cancer grows super fast, we are both anxious for him to get going again.

This treatment is Taxol which I’ve read good things about. They put him on a heavy dose of blood pressure medicine as one of the main side effects is an increase in blood pressure. Being that Mark has borderline high blood pressure, it is a concern. Not sure if I liked the oncologist remark that a heart attack is better than the cancer. Felt that was a little inappropriate but I suppose he was merely stating a fact.

In other news … we are SO close to being done with the condo! Furniture ordered and on back order for 2 of the 3 rooms we bought so far…luckily the master bedroom stuff is in stock! I’m getting excited as I’m over the temporary housing thing!

Ok … there you have it in a nutshell … Let’s Party!

Are you ready to party?

We had our 4th trip to Houston last week.

A very stressful visit. Good news: the cancer has not spread! The bad news: all the tumors have grown. That just means the current treatment (those pills) are not super effective so now we will try option #3 … that new chemo med is called Irinotecan which only has a 28% success rate. Let’s see if Mark can beat the odds.

We had another great party last week and I thank you for stopping by to share again this week!

Hey! Are you ready for another Party??

Halloween Horror Nights did NOT disappoint. And neither did the Magic Kingdom or Epcot! So much fun and nice that we know people who are able to get us guest passes for FREE! FREE! Yes, FREE! 😉

In other news, we head to MD Anderson again Thursday and Friday … this time there is a whole slew of test: blood work, CT Scan, PET Scan and then Friday is the Endoscope and doctor appointment. We are nervous and Hubby is having major anxiety from this and other family drama/issues. I am thinking positive, happy thoughts as there are no other options, in my opinion. Everything will work out just fine. Might not be perfect, might not be the way we’d prefer, but it will all be fine.

Moving onward even more … I’m so glad to see you again this week and can’t wait to see what you are sharing! There’s been some awesome stuff and I’m pinning and sharing on Facebook as much as I can! Are you following me on Facebook yet? Not a big social media person but working on it!

Let’s get on with the party, shall we??

Hey! Are you ready for another Party??

I’m so excited! We have passed all 3 inspections and now things can start happening! That’s my new kitchen and yes it will be small but I can’t wait! Mark has his appliance list together to start shopping for the best deal and if I know him he will score! *Sidenote: does anyone have any suggestions on how to store my crockpots and instant pot and electric skillet? I’m not wanting to take up any valuable space in the limited kitchen cabinet space!

Oven Taco Loaded.jpg

I’ve got an Oven Taco recipe coming to you this week … technically I should have it posted today because it is Taco Tuesday but I’ve been way too busy…

We stopped at the Condo 3 days in a row this weekend. And ended each visit at the pool. Met a few regulars and had a few drinks. I think we will be just fine when it’s time to move in. November 15th is the date. Not a day later. Hopefully a few days sooner. We’ll see …

We had some great shares last week and I’m trying to stop and see each one of you, to pin your party ideas AND to share on facebook … I’m working on it and want to thank every single one of you for coming by and sharing!

Hey! Are you ready for another Party??

Randi, Matt and Baby Nolan came to visit this weekend … I decided to splurge a ‘little’ and booked them at the DoubleTree GalleryOne Hotel down the street. I’m glad I did! They enjoyed the room with an awesome view, mini kitchenette and plenty of room for the people coming and going to visit! I spent Saturday by the pool and played tourist. Just what I needed!

The condo project is NOT moving as fast as I’d like … we have the cork flooring down but now must wait for the inspection to lay the actual flooring down. Plumbing should be inspected this week so hopefully the showers can get done. And so much more … hurry up already!

Mark is back on his pills this week … the one week off really wasn’t all that special … boo.

Hey! Are you ready for another Party??

We head to MD Anderson on Thursday for our 2nd follow up and scan. We are not overly optimistic … there are some lingering issues from the chemo and I think Mark is feeling some of the things that first made him go to the doctor before his diagnosis. We try not to think about it too much as anxiety doesn’t do anything good for you! PLUS we don’t know what the next step is if the Folfox stuff is finished.

We are settling in to the house, somewhat. I’m trying not to go too much in as we are only here temporarily. BUT geesh, I could not wait for Comcast to get here and fix the cable and internet! Took forever. They finally had a technician out on Sunday afternoon (yes, Sunday!) and the issue was STILL not resolved so they came back again on MONDAY morning and fixed 3 of the 4 boxes. Of course, the master bedroom has NO cable still and the WIFI is on the other side of the house so Hubby is going to look for an amplifier or whatever those things are called.

Thank you for sticking with me through this move … it’s not been easy and has been more stressful that I admitted out loud! BUT I’m trying to get settled in hopefully once we have the cable and internet running to full capacity, things will fall in place 😉

Italian Roasted Potatoes.jpg

I made these awesome taters on Saturday night … OLD recipe in this house but it’s been YEARS since I’ve made them … will be sharing later this week so make sure you check back!

I had a few technical difficulties last week so thank you letting me know that you were not able to link up. Still don’t know what the issue was. It was a crazy busy week and I just didn’t have time to sit down and figure it out. Here’s hoping that once this house stuff is all over and done with I can get back to my fun job – BLOGGING!

I’m fairly easy going and will not tire you with rules, BUT please, make sure you share family friendly links and tips and while you are at it, go visit some of the other folks who are sharing here!
