Dia Party Menu [Nov. 6th, 2009|10:19 am]
Because I need a little pick me up and I need a checklist I am finally posting the menu. As I mentioned it is going to be a little simpler this year but I think it will still be nice:

A selection of Mexican beverages - Mexican cane sugar coke, Dos Equis and Augua de Jamaica. Rori is contributing a special warming Cider drink to keep you toasty!

To get those taste buds fired up a few little snacks while I finish grilling
Botanas de Fruitas con sal Chili (Fruit with Chili Salt)
Roasted pepitas
Candied Chili Mango

And then we will move on to a traditional Mexican mixed grill ( I am hoping to serve the main dinner at 8:00 but as usual expect it to be lingering so don't worry about coming later!):

Nopales Asado (grilled cactus paddles - vegetarian)
Tasajo (Grilled salt cured beef)
Cencina de Cerdo Enchilada (Grilled pork in Guajiilo Adobo)
Argentinian style Chicken w/Chimichurri
Chiles Toreados (Jalepeno and Onlion Sautee- vegetarian)
Shredded Oaxacan Cheese - vegetarian
Tortillas to wrap it all up in

Accompanied by:
Pasta de Frijoles Negros (Refried black beans - vegetarian)
Peruvian Style Potato Salad w/fresh cheese (Ensalda de papas y Queso Blanco - vegetarian)

Dessert is going to be special and I am not handing out details but I have several partners in this endevour including Jaz and my mommy - BUT it is going to be FANTASTIC!!! So save room!

Finally, we could probably use an extra bag or two of ice, possibly firewood if you have anything laying around and as usual, feel free to throw a folding chair or two in the back of your car!

FINALLY - Yes, I have set up an alter this year, and as always would love participation - if there is anyone you would particularily like to remember - Currently Candace's dad and David's dad have spots of honor

THIS is momentous!!! [Sep. 24th, 2009|04:05 pm]
My contractor is coming next weekend to "do" my entry way. This is huge as it will mark the LAST big step to completing the downstairs AND a major leap forward in the upstairs!!!! He is going to do the plaster repair and texture and rip out a wall out upstairs and frame in the new door - all very exciting!!!!

I will of course lay the hardwood floor, paint and install a floor to ceiling bookcase - woot!!! I am thinking that I am going to paint it gray with one wall in vertical gray on gray stripes, black trim and my dark floors.

Yes people for this year's Day of the Dead Party (Nov 7th is the tentative date for anyone interested)you will be thrilled by the sites of my almost completed house.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! [Aug. 13th, 2009|01:32 pm]

In other news, RA symptoms are WAY on the decrease - hoping meds are working wonderfully and isn't jsut normal ebb and flow. Considering I have had symptoms consistently since the beginning of the year, I think it's possible that this wonderful, FABULOUSNESS is in fact an indication that my VERY LOW side effect protocol is, in fact, KICKING RA ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I feel FREAKING AWSOME and have for almost a week now!


SO yea, life is freaking fantastic - in OH so many ways!!!!!

My GranPa died one year ago today [May. 24th, 2009|10:16 pm]
In some ways it seems like just yesterday and in other ways everthing has changed so much, it feels like forever ago.

Maybe Hopeful? [May. 7th, 2009|08:41 am]
From what I have been reading I may well be a candidate for Minocyclene therapy - in early, moderate, sereopositive RA (mine is sereopositive, just haven't figured out how early) it shows HIGH instance of remission, low instance of side effects, VERY low instance of debilitating side effects and early studies show as good as prognosis at 2,3 and 4 year follow ups as certain other DMRADs.

Although it has been approved as a DMARD I understand that it has been getting very little support from maintream medicine.

I NEED IT LATER IN THE WEEK? [May. 5th, 2009|11:59 am]
Is it me? Or is this STOOPID?

So last Friday I explained to the new appriaser that if she didn't do Saturdays I needed an appointment later in the week becasue I had reporting to get out Monday and Tuesday at work

She said how about Monday at noon?

I explained that I couldn't just pop home on my lunch hour and really first thing in the morning or late in the afternoon is the best I can do. AND I NEED IT LATER IN THE WEEK

She said how about Tuesday?


She said OK how about Weds in the late afternoon and will call Tuesday to confirm.

I said OK

SO she called and said how about Weds at 1:30?

I said I sdidn't think that was late in the afternoon and she said well she has to go to Castle Rock that day and I am thinking, this is my problem how? I practically work in Castle Rock and she expects me to pop home on my lunch hour for an appraisal.

Is weds at 1:30 really considered late in the afternoon?

She also offered friday at 2:00. I don't know what day my boss will feel good about and I may be dog sitting and would prefer not to do it Friday. AND2:00 IS NOT LATE IN THE AFTERNOON!

Seriously is it me? Am I sending out bad appraisel mojo and how do I fix it before I screw myself again.

I kinda hate the world at the moment

So I now have to figure out how to take about a million afternoons off in the next 2 weeks, preferably without using up all my PTO - and we can't take half days off - 8 hours or nothing - cause I also have two Doctors appointments next week
