Hey! Are you ready for another Party??

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!

Let’s Party #25!

Hey! Are you ready for another Party??

Are you all ready for the 4th? I’m not. I won’t be doing much as Mark is gone, the kids are on the West coast, and well, I’ve got stuff that I should be doing around here, like decluttering, packing and finding our next home!

Mark had his 8th treatment last week and started on the 7 day regime of pills on Thursday.  He started a couple of days later than he should have due to the lack of communication and follow through of the PA but hey, it all worked out. He’s up in NW Indiana right now and said it is HOT … coming from someone who has lived in South Florida for the past 35 years or so, that says a lot!

Last week we had some great shares, yet again! I want to thank all of your for stopping in and sharing!

I never share Big Kitty Kitty so here he is! Massive Kitty with massive paws and claws to go along …

Mark goes for his 8th treatment today … and it’s messed up. We got clearance for him to do the infusion and then he gets to take 6 pills a day for 7 days straight. That way he wouldn’t have to do the pump for an additional 48 hours. That allows him a little more freedom and the ability to travel. Perfect! Makes things seem much more doable, right?

Hey! Are you ready for another Party??

Mark had his 7th treatment last Tuesday … he did surprisingly well but said they took one drug out as he only had the one bag instead of two … his side effects were not as bad as they were after the 6th one AND they didn’t come on as fast.  Sadly, everything has a funky taste he said. That stinks. I’m hoping it gets better but so far not happening.

Kitten is making sure that we don’t leave home without her. Her and Kitty Kitty have a vet visit today and we pulled the carriers out over the weekend to get them used to being out as Kitty Kitty is pretty smart and knows what they mean … he’s a b!tch to get in the crate since he does not let anyone pick him up but me, and even that is limited.  We have a pill to give him to ‘relax’ him but he still puts up a fight to put him in the crate. Mark had to wear his welder gloves the last time.  I’m not sure how he’s going to do this all by himself but he said he’s up to the task!

OH! Did you know you can save $10 off your first Walmart Pick Up order? Yes, This IS an affiliated and I will be receive a little compensation IF you use it BUT I am all about saving you some money too! I’m swinging by on my way to see my Dad tomorrow and plan on saving myself about 45 minutes to an hour of that time by doing this! Even better? I can see how much my bill is as I add stuff … sweet!

I am so thankful that you all keep coming back every week to share your wonderful creations, ideas and thoughts! We had some great shares again!

Hey! Are you ready for another party! I am!

Mark had his SIXTH and last treatment 2 weeks ago. He is skipping this week as we have his follow up at MD Anderson on Thursday and Friday this week … thoughts and prayers are greatly appreciated!  Depending on the results of his scans will determine if he continues the brutal every other week for 3 days each time treatment or if something else needs to be done. I will add that the metal taste has not gone away, he’s still sensitive to cold foods/drinks, his fingertips are numb and tingly as are the bottoms of his feet. The doctor was to have turned down the drugs that cause neuropathy but Mark thinks maybe he turned it up since the last treatment really kicked his butt.

I missed the last 2 weeks … came down with a wicked cold (and yes, Mark did catch it as well 🙁 but recovered faster than me!) and work was just plain crazy busy. I’m glad May is over but not so happy we are in the sixth month of the year!

I’m hoping you all had an awesome time this past weekend with Cinco de Mayo, the Kentucky Derby, my birthday AND if you live local, the Air and Sea Show!

Mark had treatment #5 Tuesday. Currently sleeping still this morning as that stuff makes him all jacked up on Tuesday … was fidgeting still at 2am so I have no idea what time he fell asleep finally! We head to Houston that first week of June so excited/nervous/scared … prayers are accepted!

Last week we had some AWESOME shares yet again! You guys all rock! Thank you for stopping by each week to give inspiration and ideas to all of us!

Mark is up in Indiana this week so that there has been my dinner …. just kidding, not really, I’ve not even opened them yet! I have, however, consumed TWO cans of Pringles during dinner hour … need to get a little more focused at that time!

We had some GREAT shares last week, AGAIN! Thank you all for stopping by and sharing your wonderful ideas and projects!

Let’s Party #17!

Hey! Are you ready for another Party??

I had a quick trip to NW Indiana last Thursday and Friday to help Mark out with a couple of units … he wasn’t feeling all that great earlier in the week so I decided to just go help him out! I’m glad I did, but I must say, the weather was … different. COLD at night and beautiful looking during the day except that wind! 😉 I’ve become a thin blooded Floridian!

Mark had his 4th treatment today (Tuesday) and he’s all worked up. Those steriods really do their job! This week, he will take a pill on Friday to offset his worst feeling day. I guess it’s because he goes off the pump on Thursday afternoon and his body really starts to feel the effects of the chemo on Friday … he’s feeling the neuropathy and his skin is starting to break down around the port. Luckily he only has TWO more treatments and then we head to Houston for another scan to see how things are progressing and improving, hopefully!

Vineta over at the The Handyman’s Daughter caught my attention again with her post on how Build Recessed Bathroom Shelves … if she keeps this up, I might just go ahead and re-do my awful dusty rose bath!

Kit at The Kittchen shared her Lemon Parmesan Fettuccine … this caught my eye as the nutritionist had told Mark to try lemon seasoned foods when he is dealing with the metallic taste in his mouth (which has stayed with him now for the past 2 weeks) …

I’m am ready to get this party on the road again!

Let’s Party #16!

Hey! Are you ready for another Party??

Mark had his third treatment last Tuesday … it was a rough recovery … still has that metallic taste in his mouth, can’t eat anything cold, hands are VERY sensitive to cold and his toes are starting as well (I believe this is the neuropathy side effect). He flew to Indiana on Friday morning and has just had a rough time there. So much so that I booked a flight for Thursday morning to spend a few days with him and then fly back together on Saturday afternoon …

I’m laughing at Big Kitty from a while ago … he gets a little needy and jelly too so he’ll just park himself on the laptop when I walk away! This is an OLD picture as that phone! 2010 folks! So long ago! As I type this post he is sitting on my lap wondering when I’m going to relocate to the couch!

We had some great shares again this last week!!

Venita at the Handy Mans Daughter shared her bathroom renovation … I’m really drawn to this post because we have this awful rose colored bathroom (that we know – we’ve been told! – is hindering our sale!) … I’m going to have to follow along on her project and check out her other stuff too!

Katie at Paradise Praises shared How To Create Happiness … this could not come at a better time in my life than now! Yes, a lot of it is geared towards those with kids (she does have 5!) but still … as an adult, I still want to experience happiness so I’m all for it!

AND then we had Jennifer over at Busy Being Jennifer sharing all those awesome Cinco de Mayo cocktails! Did you know that my birthday IS on Cinco de Mayo? Arriba!  She shares FIFTY cocktails! Sweet momma, I don’t think I can do all 50! Go check it out, I’m sure there’s one or two that will be calling your name!

I’m am ready to get this party on the road again!
