Menu Plan Monday

It's a little late but this is my plan for the week. I am not going to put it by days since sometimes I change my mind or the way my life has been change has to be done. For anyone who wanted to know my mom finally get's to go home after being in the hosptial for 2 weeks. Yay! She is on a feeding tube but only has to do that at night. She will be starting chemo soon as long as she keeps her nutrition and health up. Please pray that this tumor shrinks so she may have surgery. Thanks! And onwards to what I am hoping to feed my family this week!

Lasagna and garlic bread. ( I tried my hand at making 'homemade' lasagna tonight.It seemed everyone enjoyed it. I wanted something different with leftover meat sauce for spaghetti)

Terakaki Chicken and Rice

Biscuits and Gravy (What I usually do is cook the sausage and than add flour to the grease and once that is cooked add milk. It's one of our favorites. Probably not the most healthiest but it's yummy!)

Chicken Sandwiches (They are actually Boca but I thought I'd try this 'meatless' product in chicken to see how it goes with the family.)

Pancakes and Eggs

Next Monday is my daughter's birthday and she'll be 13. Amazing! So on Saturday she wants to go to the mall. She also got a free Red Robin's burger for her birthday so we most likely will go there when we are at the mall.

So what are you feeding your family? If you need more ideas stop over at

Hoo Are You?


1. Where do you usually have your thermostat set at in the winter?
It is set from 65-70. We like it warm here!

2. What room do you tend to put off cleaning until last?
Probably the bathroom!

3. Do you like to clean with music on or off?
It doesn't really matter. I find I clean when I am doing something else like cooking etc. If I am in a particular room and I see it needs to be picked up or cleaned I do it automatically.

4. When do you take time to blog?
I try to blog in the evenings as that is my down time. I was MIA for a bit because 2011 just has not been kind. But I'm starting to feel like I can lift my head up some.

5. How much time do you spend looking at other blogs a week?
It varies. Reading blogs has defintly become my reading material!

Five Question Friday

1. Have you worn the same outfit more than one day in a row?
Yep! Cause I may have only worn the outfit long enough to step out to get something/run an errand and than I am back in my PJ's.

2. If you had to choose any LARGE city to live in, which would it be?
Where I am right now! SF baby. I'm a Californian thru and thru. Even though I have moved away I always come back. This is my home.

3. Fly or drive with the kids on vacation?
Both. Though driving is cheaper.

4. What is your idea of "spring cleaning"?
Hahaha. I can't remember the last time I did spring cleaning.

5. What is the best book you have ever read?
The Bible 

Fill in the Blank Friday

It's been a while since I have posted since real life has been unkind since basically the beginning of the year. But I felt like posting something. So what better way than a meme? Enjoy!

1.   I am feeling anxious tonight. The rain isn't helping.  I am feeling the need to sleep or watch mindless tv.
2.  The bravest thing I've ever done was keep my soon to be 13 year old. People close to me wanted to abort or give her up for adoption. 
3.  I feel prettiest when my husband compliments me. Though I have a hard time accepting it. He has made me a better person as a result of his love.  
4.  Something that keeps me awake at night is the health of my Mom. I know we are not ever guaranteed when we will die. But I don't want to lose her to soon. I'm not ready to let her go. I'll have to accept it when the time comes, though.
5.  My favorite meal in the entire world is burritos. I could probably eat them everyday. I have found out that I don't like chicken burritos though. They just don't taste right to me.
6.  The way to my heart is to love me and my family. 
7.  I would like to take away the experience my mother is going thru right now. It's not fair. I don't understand the lesson behind it and why it's happening.

This is How My Monday Went

Better explained thru my face book status throughout the day.

Leaving soon to go see my Mom. Her procedure is suppose to be at noon. Thank you for the prayers. It is appericated and not forgotten!

It was suggested that I stay back instead of seeing mom since I just got over my cold. I just got told mom is going now 4 procedure. It's not as invasive as her surgery was & she may get 2 go home today. I pray this is something she can tolerate & it helps.

So the procedure didn't work and now she'll have to get a drain. When is my mother going to have relief? This really sucks.

That drain is suppose 2 help with the bili issue. Her tumor was pressing when they tried the 1st & they. Were afraid 2 continue cause of risk of bleeding. So hopefully she will get to go home wed/thur. Shell b on antibiotics cause of the risk of infection. I pray she doesn't get a infection. That's how my dad died.

At this rate I'm going to have to buy stock in Mcdonalds as their ice cream has fast become my comfort food. It reminds me of my Mom and when my younger sister and I were little. She'd take us there and order the cones for us and we'd sit in the parking lot enjoying our treat. Since I couldn't go down there today I took my daughter and got a cone. I see lots of ice cream cone eating in my near future.

How'd your Monday go?

10th Anniversary

is next Monday. Yes that's right. We got married on Valentine's Day. In hopes of giving me a little bit of joy this past weekend my husband got me this. He had always told me he would get me a better piece of jewelry than what we started with.

I can't believe I have this. It is a anniversary ring. The three stones represent past present and future. It seems so fitting. I love it! I haven't taken it off at all since it was placed on my finger last night. It always brings a smile on my face when I look at it.

Mom Update

I am just going to post my facebook status to here when I remember etc. As right now it is eaiser for me to do that than to write a post of what is going on in my life. Thank you for the prayers.

Mom isn't eating. Maybe half a Popsicle at that. Suppose to have a procedure tomorrow that might give her some relief. I've been laying low today so hopefully my cold is gone so I can see her. Can't find the joy in this just anxiety. Please pray. That's all I know how to do on this end. Ty.
