HAPPY HOMEMAKER & MENU PLAN MONDAY

September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness month.
First and foremost for me this week is a subject very close to my heart AND my life. 
 Be sure and see my AWARENESS post here.

We have a bit of a delay in our move so I’m all packed and am waiting patiently, NOT!  We are trying to stay busy, but that’s not easy with everything packed.  Seems like a vicious circle to me.

WEATHER OUTSIDE
A bit cooler today with the promise of rain that we desperately need before the week is out.

TO DO FOR THE WEEK

  • A couple physical therapy appointments for hubby
  • Laundry 
  • Cleaning
  • Paperwork

CURRENTLY READING

TELEVISION / DVR
Next week will be the BIG reveal week for the new shows, so this week we’re still trying to clean out the DVR from all the stacked up summer shows.

HOME PROJECTS
After the move and we get settled one of my first projects will be making a garden area something like this:

KITCHEN WISHES
I LOVE enamelware and would love both sizes of these new pans from Pioneer Woman’s new line at Walmart:

SUCCESSFUL RECIPES  FROM LAST WEEK

ON MY MIND
We had an encounter with yet another VERY RUDE VA employee this past week.  I have to wonder if they are instructed to make things more difficult than necessary in order to get people to just go away!  It took us over a month of our time and effort to get a prescription situation corrected, a situation that never should have transpired to begin with. Then in the mail came a new bottle of the same damn drug!  We went back to get it corrected AGAIN! and the male nurse was 100% useless and antagonistic.  Funny thing is hubby specifically told him I was there as his advocate and because I had all the dates and information and the man refused!!!! to deal with me even with hubby standing right there telling him differently. Ironically he called me adversarial, which he did NOT see from me. Really? He thought I was being adversarial because I was giving him factual information to correct an error (AGAIN)?  He should know that adversarial would include a formal complaint against him for his attitude and disrespect of a veteran and we would win because I keep a calendar of dates and interactions regarding ALL VA interactions for exactly this reason.  I am not one to allow someone o jut say, oh well, that’s just how it is.  We proceeded to the pharmacy and were able to correct part of the problem at least with a VERY nice gentleman who actually listened and understood the chain of events.

THINGS THAT MAKE ME HAPPY

  • BEING HEALTHY
  • SUCCESSFUL RECIPE EXPERIMENTS
  • HEARING HAPPY STORIES IN THE NEWS

Love the awareness you shed on ovarian cancer.

That garden looks so cool! Such great raised beds in a neat set up. I've been looking at Pioneer Woman's line & she has some really great things (& they're cute too!).

What a pain in the rear with these VA folks!! Hopefully it will get better.
Blessings on your week Tamy! Xo

Thanks, I love to cook and glad my meals sound appealing 🙂 I love that garden too. I'm just getting too old to crawl on the ground and this will be sure to keep the dogs (and other critters) out too!

I love that garden idea, I'm assuming it keeps the plants off the ground and won't get eaten by rabbits etc. Looks so neat.

I don't really much care for the Pioneer Woman but I love enamelware and those are gorgeous.
