Happy Homemaker Monday for October 29th, 2018

I am linking up with Sandra from Diary of a Stay at Home Mom for Happy Homemaker Monday

Before heading into HHM, I have to share some personal stuff.  If you've read my blog before, you my know that my younger sister has end-stage liver disease and we are working toward a liver transplant.  The past six months she has lost a lot of weight, but otherwise, she's been pretty stable.  On Friday, she had a dizzy spell and passed out, landing on her face and ribs.  I met the ambulance and my dad at the hospital.  At first they thought she had a split lip but had escaped any further injury.  We thought they might release her from the hospital.  All her xrays were negative, head, neck, and back CT scans came back negative.  Her ribs started to hurt more, so I told the nurse maybe she was ready for some pain meds.  (She had refused them previously)  When she told the ER dr, he recommended a CT of the chest.  She refused, saying they were sore, but she didn't think that anything was broken.  FUNNY thing is (not funny, totally a GOD thing) the guy from radiology came down and took her to CT for the scan by mistake.  A bit later, the ER dr came back to tell her she has a bunch of rib fractures.  They rushed Morphine into her and called in the trauma team.  We thought she might be coming home today -  but she's developed a fever and they are worried about pneumonia.  Plus she is having some cirrhosis complications too.  So all prayers are appreciated!  <3  

The weather in my neck of the woods.....  50s & rainy

Right now I am.... Watching a Christmas movie on Hallmark, blogging, and meal prepping. 

Thinking about.... How the weekend is always too short. 

On the blog last week..... Not much of anything.  Again. 

On my reading pile....  Finishing "The Outsider" by Stephen King

On my TV..... 
Hallmark Christmas movies (yes, already)
Ghost Adventures
All the Chicago shows
New Amsterdam
Grey's Anatomy
Youtube videos 
Days of Our Lives 

Movie of the week...... "Christmas at Holly Lodge" Super cute, sweet, Christmas movie.  Exactly what you'd expect of Hallmark.  Plus, it stars one of my favorites, Alison Sweeney.  

On the menu for this week....
Sunday - Spaghetti & meatballs 
Monday -  Chicken Shwarma sandwich, hummus, herbed rice 
Tuesday - Taco Tuesday 
Wednesday - Halloween - Homemade pizza 
Thursday - Whole grain pasta with chicken and veggies 
Friday - Dad's house: Roast, carrots, potatoes, salad, green beans 
Saturday - YOYO

That's going to be it for this week.  I do have a wonderful GOD story to tell - but I will save that for next week. 


  1. Many prayers for your sister and your family! I'm not quite ready to watch Christmas movies but soon. Hope you have a great week.

  2. I had one broken rib and it hurt like crazy.

  3. Getting here late this week. Keeping your sister in my prayers - hope she is doing much better REALLY soon! I'm watching a bunch of Hallmark Christmas movies too! I hope you had a GREAT week.
