Happy Sunday TKW Family! So tell me how your past week has been?  Take a vacation perhaps or maybe just chill out at home?  Talk with me, dish about your life. Let’s get to know one another. Last week for us was hard and sad. Sadly my sister in law (my brother in law’s wife) passed away after battling cancer for a little over 3 years. Death is hard for as it is for most but I guess for me, having experienced it at such a young age with my parents and having tragic events happen in my life, I don’t handle it well. But then I suppose no one really does.

It broke my heart to see my niece, her daughter, who is only 15 just stand there eyes so swollen from crying looking just so lost. I know that feeling all too well as I was her when I, too, first experienced the loss of a loved one. Though I was 18, I was still a child really. My poor, sweet brother in law…one of the gentlest souls you’ll ever meet standing there putting on a brave face though you could see his pain.

Death, in a way, kind of opens your eyes to many things. It kind of makes you aware of your life, the people in your life and realize what’s truly important. And also, it forces you to have those conversations that you really don’t want to ever have…how to handle your time when you pass, wills, finances; almost a preparation of what to do when someone passes.

Never go a day without letting someone you love know that they are loved

Happy Sunday TKW Family! How’s this summer been treating you?  What’s the best thing you’ve done this summer thus far?  For me and this shoulder surgery my summer has been spent pretty much in a sling and in a recliner, however, I can’t complain too much as it really brought Mr. Fantabulous and me closer (if that’s even possible).

So I’m adult enough to admit it… I’m stubborn and extremely independent. Like my first day coming home from surgery, I was already starting with the “I can do it myself” spiel. To have someone wait on me and take care of me is tough as I simply don’t ask for things or even feel uncomfortable asking for help. It’s just not how I was raised. I was raised to be the one taking care of things, helping others, etc.

But this surgery, this surgery, it really humbled me and taught me it’s OK to ask for help (and ask for it multiple times). Mr. Fantabulous, God love him, has shown extreme patience with me. I’m a bad patient in the sense that I simply never liked being taken care of or more so ask for help. From putting my clothes on to washing my hair, from getting up every 3 hours to give me a pain pill to changing my ice packs every couple of hours Mr. Fantabulous never stopped and always, always did it with a smile.

How’s your summer been?

Happy Sunday TKW Family! Gosh, can you believe it’s already the middle of summer?  How are you spending your summer?  Vacation(s)? Family reunions? Or just working and chilling out in the evenings? For me (us) we’re staying home. Traveling while injured is not fun and it’s not fair to Mr. Fantabulous that I limit our fun because of this stupid surgery. We decided that come Octoberish I should be okay enough to take a vacation.

I’m kinda bummed as our anniversary is next month and he’s asking what I want to do/how I want to celebrate. I’ve always told him on our 10th anniversary (we’ve been together though 21 years) that I wanted to tour Italy for 2-3 weeks but that won’t be possible right now; not with the way I’m feeling. So we’ll wait until early 2018 to go.

Now for him when I asked him what he’d like he gives me the normal “I don’t need anything as long as I have you” (yeah he’s a keeper) buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut…. he’s been looking at lots (AND LOTS) of new guitar equipment. So I have a feeling that’s his not-so-subtle hint. #boysandtheirtoys lol

Favorite thing you’ve done so far this summer… GO~

Happy Sumday TKW Family! How are things in your world? Mine are rather boring I’m afraid as I’m still pretty much isolated to the recliner. I’m pretty bored as there’s nothing on tv and I pretty much surfed the entire Internet.  One can only watch so many cute animal videos on YouTube and look at food pics. The latter actually depresses me as I want nothing more than to be out in the kitchen cooking and baking but one-handed makes it rather difficult for me. Yes I tried and after I got scolded from Mr. Fantabulous I gave up.

While I’m not a big tv watcher I have no choice but to surf the 1000+ channels we get. So why is it I get almost a 200+ sports channels, 100+ science, 200+nature/history, 14 variations of Fox/Cnn, and only 2, yes two, food-related shows??? C’mon Comcast get with the times! And if it’s not them, then someone start another foodie-centric channel! Oh don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Food Network and The Cooking Channel but I want to see actual cooking shows, not 47 competitions. Enough with the “Real Chef vs Joe Schmo”, “Kids Cooking blah blah blah” or “wars”. I want to learn, see how these multi-million dollar paid chefs make things, Teach me something instead of how to use a rake while scrambling eggs.

Everything is a competition anymore. Enough already. Hey about a show where these multi-million dollar chefs visit real people’s homes (like mine) and you cook with them. Let them cook for you while you tutor or give insight. Empower your audience with knowledge; useful knowledge.

Do you have a favorite cooking show where they actually cook?

Happy Sunday TKW Family!  I’m 2 weeks post-op. If you’re reading this portion now it means I’m still not able to sit at the computer and type (one handed) these posts. I’m still recupperating from surgery. What I’ve done is write up a few posts before going out on surgery in case I still not recovered enough to post. Please forgive me but I didn’t want you guys to go with out a weekly menu.

Have an amazing week and hopefully by next Sunday I’ll be well enough to set at the computer and write up a real post instead of a pre-scheduled one.

Love you!
