To update you on my mother-in-law, she is coming home today.
The hospital re-ran all of the tests and have come to the conclusion that she has Adenocarcinoma (same as our friend) which originated in the gallbladder.
Their plan of action is for her to begin chemo at an oncologists office just an hour from here so we are so thankful she is going to be home and her treatments will be fairly local.
I don't like to focus on progression and stages so we will move forward and pray for a full recovery.
My husbands aunt arrived last night and is waiting for the hospital to put a port in my MIL so she can come home.
The rain stopped for 2 days. It has been amazingly beautiful with bright blue skies, fluffy white clouds and warm temps.
I got my bird feeder filled and hummingbird feeder filled and put out yesterday.
Rumor has it, the rain will be back tomorrow so I am going to try to get some planting done either today or Monday.
The big one moved back home for a few days with my MIL's German Shepherd (Kona's brother, Neko) and has been quite delightful.
He quit his job at a clothing store (he was driving an hour and spending wayyy too much on gas) and came to work for us as a cook.
Now, if you know anything about my oldest, you know that he has never had an interest in the family business.
He likes theater and music and fashion so cooking and bussing tables for us didn't pan out in the past.
He ended up managing this clothing store and his boss was a complete and utter piece of shit.
She kept him late off the clock, called him at home to yell at him, never liked anything he did no matter what it was and used profanity in the store. I plan to write to the company to inform them of all of this but while my son was working for her, her refused to turn her in. He did document the behavior so I do have plenty to say.
To top it off, she is also very rude to customers.
Monday night, he asked if he could go to work with me Tuesday and re-learn cooking and we were impressed that he finished the shift. Then, he worked again yesterday without so much as a whine and today was there bright and early again.
I don't know if he is finally growing up, if the horrible job made him realize we are not that bad to work for or if this is fly by night adventure but he is planning on enrolling back into college this fall.
He has kept his room (mostly) clean, washed his own laundry, kept curfew, informed of where he is so I don't worry and offered to take the little one to school and help with all of the dogs if we need him to.
Here he is on Easter. He found an entire deer skeleton in the woods and dragged the head home (gross) to discover that it was a 10 pointer.
Since it is Fashion Friday, I will show you some of the cute things I bought online on sale at Gap.
And I never wear earrings because they make my ears itch. Someone told me to try the nickel-free kind so I bought some yesterday along with a cute and very discounted top ($5)
I also made it to the grocery store with my list and a menu plan for the week. Last night I made beef and bean burritos and they were so yummy!
