Let’s Party #42!

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!

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’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!

Hey! Are you ready for another Party??

I’m late this week … sorry!

kirkland fully cooked bacon costco.jpg

Here’s an off the wall picture of the Kirkland Brand Fully Cooked Bacon … they must have finally paid off Hormel to get their own! $11.99 (if my memory serves me right) and so worth it since I’m the only one that seems to eat the stuff nowdays!

Mark had his 2nd round of chemo Tuesday with his continuing pump through Thursday afternoon. So far, he’s tolerated it rather well, a little queasy, a little tired, a little bit of that jolting/electrical charge in his mouth, throat, lips and hands when cold things make contact. That’s due to the Folfox I guess. All the things they told him to expect. I’m hoping that he tolerates Friday better than the last time!

Ok, that’s it for the Mark update!

We had some awesome shares last week! But because I’m LATE, I won’t be linking any of them but please, be sure to check out some of the great stuff that’s being put out there!

Let’s Party #11

We missed last week and are really sorry … life interferes once in a while. Mark had his port put in that day and well, it was a LONG day for him at the hospital, and a long day for ME at the office. Throw in a last minute showing and breaking my pinky toe in my quick clean rush and all bets were off for the day.

kitten says say whwat

MD Anderson gave the same treatment plan the week before so Mark started on Tuesday. 5 hour chemo treatment followed by an at home fannie pack 48 hour infusion. He should be disconnected by Thursday late afternoon and hopefully ready to party by Friday evening. Fingers crossed as we have no idea how he will respond. Hopefully, internally, he will respond awesome as it appears to have spread even more in the past 4 weeks according to the CT Scan we had in Houston. They did tell us that he will probably feel “normal” by Sunday. I will say he was jacked up Tuesday evening ….

But you know what? WE ARE STILL READY TO PARTY!

Two weeks ago there were TONS of great shares! I want to say thank you to all of you that continue to stop by each week and share your creations and inspirations!

There were a LOT of links last week and I appreciate all the love and sharing! Sadly, because this week is kind of crazy, I’m not going to share what I feel are the most interesting … we finally received a call from MD Anderson Tuesday morning: Mark is not a candidate for surgery so they transferred his records to another department who called that afternoon and would like to see him on Tuesday for 3 to 5 days. So rush, rush, rush, hurry, hurry, hurry and get all the real life stuff done and out of the way!

But I still want to PARTY!

ready to eat wings

This week I’m sharing a pic of these awesome wings that I made in the Instant Pot on Super Bowl Sunday … it was just me and Jamie at the house as I really was not in the mood to be celebrating … can I just tell you how awesome these are? I’ll share how I did it on Thursday so come back and check it out!  Mark’s up in Indiana for the week and I’m excited to make them for him!

Again, we had some great shares last week! Becoming Alice shared her Vegan/Dairy Free Strawberry Muesli Parfait … I have everything except the sugar but can use coconut sugar if necessary because I know how to improvise!

And then we had Trick and Treat sharing this awesome Easy Sour Cream Cake … I want to try this with plain greek yogurt! Yumm!!

And lastly, we all want to save a little more money, right? Saving Sarah shared 32 Awesome Ways to Save Money in the Kitchen. Uhm, with 32 tips, I’m sure there’s one or even two that would benefit all of us!

I want to thank ALL OF YOU for sharing last week!

So this week … let’s see what YOU have to share!

19 crimes 2016 red wine 9.99 on sale.jpg

The wine of the week is 19 Crimes 2016 Red Wine … interesting and tasty. It’s been a favorite of mine for about a year and when it goes on sale for $9.99, you better believe I pick up TWO bottles!

I want to give a HUGE thank you to those of you who came by and shared last week! There were some pretty interesting shares … pamecrement wrote a pretty moving post about God’s Sufficiency  … it really hit home this week and I think there was a quiet hand that had her share that this week.  And then there was the COOL cups by Hoopla Palooza … so very neat and some great cups were used! Makes me want to run to Bed Bath & Beyond to pick up some! AND then, over at Craft Beering we are showed how to make a Porter and Onion Gravy! With this new “soft food” diet that Mark is on, this will be golden! You bet it’s pinned and ready to give a whirl real soon!

So this week … let’s see what YOU have to share!
