How was your weekend? So, we are going on day 15 of my dad in the hospital.  He has had trouble recuperating from surgery and complications from first chemo treatment. Friday one of my sisters arrived and Saturday the other arrived. We spent the weekend together – mainly at the hospital.  My sisters were great.  We even had lots of laughs in the midst of everything.  I’m so grateful to my parents for having two more kids after me!  If you are struggling with your kids fighting right now, it won’t always be that way, hopefully.  Please continue to keep my dad in your prayers.  Thank you.  

This sister looked cute in her step hem Stitch Fix jeans, last season Target mustard sweater and crocheted scarf. She is an art teacher and has a cute and funky style. She is not doing Stitch Fix anymore but splurged on these $80 jeans and has worn them a bunch.  She thinks the price point is too high for her to do it regularly, but I know many people who think they actually save money by doing it.  It’s that theory of having fewer things but things you truly love and that fit you well.  Hmmmm, I’m still doing research on that!  

I bought this spiced cider a couple of weeks ago and just tried it this weekend with my spiked cider.  Yum!  Trader Joe’s has tons of products that will make Thanksgiving simpler if you can get there today or tomorrow.  Wednesday will be crazy I think!

These Target plates from last year make me so happy.  I bought 8 of them and just love them.  Four are like this and four just have leaves.  

A friend gave me this Swig wine cup for my birthday and I really like it.  I think I will order a monogram from Etsy, because if it stands still, we stick a monogram on it in the south.  

I finally was able to focus on a book after not being able to for almost two weeks.  She is the author of How to Walk Away so I took a chance on this and it’s cute so far.  

One of the things we were laughing about it this slogan on all of the white boards in my dad’s hospital.  It says “here we provide you with VERY GOOD care”.  Why not excellent care?  My husband said they don’t want to set the bar too high!  But, in all seriousness, the people have been wonderful from the doctors and nurses to the nutrition and cleaning people.  


I hope you have a great Monday!

Thanks for reading!


P.S. Somehow everything I typed and all of my editing was lost from my Friday post – oops!

  1. Prayers for your dad! Try to remember that the chemo is strong stuff and it kills good cells along with the bad so when he is sick with side effects just think it’s working like it’s supposed to – I found that to be helpful both when I worked at MD Anderson and when my brother had chemo. It practically killed him but it killed that awful cancer too. So glad you have your sisters, this is when you are so thankful to have that support.
    I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and your dad comes home. Actually, have a “Very Good” holiday!!!


  2. Prayers for your dad. That is an interesting slogan, and I am glad that he is getting good care. Those plates are so cute!
