Just a short note to say thank you so much for all of the comments. They are well and truly appreciated.
Good gravy I'm tired. I knew I would be but I didn't realize how bad being this tired would make me feel. My sister in law isn't a problem at all, neither is her dog. He is a huge part wolf dog that is reaching senior-hood so having two large dogs ... one older and one still pretty much a puppy has been an exercise in teaching them both some patience. I guess it is just all of the disruption and how nothing that I had meant to get done while hubby was out of town is actually getting done.
My sister in law is actually doing a lot better than expected. She'll be able to return to dialysis on Thursday and will probably go to her home on Saturday barring any nasty surprises. There wasn't any cancer though the ovaries were so polycystic that she had to have larger than expected incisions. She now has been given a clean bill of health if you don't count her failing remaining kidney. Unfortunately she is now required to start over with the whole transplant process. She has a match willing to donate, just no doctor will touch her until she is able to complete the three month process from beginning to end without any disruptions. She was almost finished when the full-body MRI showed several issues that had to be taken care of. As you can imagine it has been a real roller-coaster since she got on the transplant list.
She's resting at the moment and I needed to unwind so I did a little updating ...

A couple of them have more than one addition which is good but there are some that I wanted to update that my head just hasn't been clear enough to address. I will try and get more writing finished for this weekend but I'm going to have to take her for a doctor's appointment so it may not happen until after she goes back home. Which is just in time for hubby to get back into town so I'm hoping by this coming Sunday or Monday to have my daily schedule back in order which should help with getting the updates back on schedule as well.
Thanks for your understanding and patience.
Below is something that has saved my life the last couple of weeks. My kids love homemade pizza ... or pizza bread ... or pizza muffins, etc. Well you get the picture. But that commercially canned pizza sauce is expensive. So I've been canning my own for several years. Yeah, it is a little trouble up front but on the back end there is just nothing like the flavor and convenience of having your own homemade pizza sauce on hand. And for those of you that don't or can't start from fresh tomatoes here's a tip ... use commercially canned tomato sauce. I buy a couple of #10 cans of tomato sauce when I can find them on sale or at least for a better price than starting from scratch and then make pizza sauce, spaghetti sauce, etc. and process it that way.
