Crappy Day

My hubby is sick :( Thankfully, not the flu or bronchitis - just a stomach bug.  Don't know if its something he ate or if he has a 24 hour thing.  I may have had the same thing, but I think my stomach is a bit tougher than his - haha.  I woke up around 3 with a stomach ache and visited the bathroom & felt better - sorry TMI!  Then, he gets up around 4 and has it coming out of both ends - eww.  He is the loudest thrower-upper I've ever heard.  I bet the neighbors heard him.  I felt fine the rest of the day, but my patient is still in bed trying to eat a few crackers now.

So, our day has been relatively uneventful, until I took Sophie for a short stroll through the neighborhood.  Since we're on the topic of bowel movements, I guess I shall continue.  My lovely dog decided she needed to take a dump in the middle of the road - joy!  She came to a quick stop and squatted & I screamed "NO!"  But, it was too late - I yanked her to the other side of the street where there is a vacant lot (thankfully we have several still in the neighborhood that Sophie likes to leave presents in).  Then, a car came & ran over part of what was in the road and I just stood there while Sophie finished her business in the proper spot.  Her present was right in front of someone's driveway and I had to pick up the non-run over part, so I went hunting for a leaf because I didn't bring a bag.   Hopefully, the neighbors didn't see see me picking it up - I'm sure it was a funny sight!
So, anyway - that's all that's new here! Loads of Crap!

SmartVest Review & CF Appointment

Well, here is the long awaited official review of my new SmartVest SQL.  I don't have any current or updated vests to compare this too, so my feed back is based upon what I like/dislike versus the old and out-dated vest.

Pros:
Weight - it is MUCH lighter than my ancient Hilrom Vest.  By all means, it isn't light but definitely a great improvement from my older model.  I can at least carry it myself!Comfort of vest - the fabric is much softer and less scratchy when wearing it.Technology - it has a digital screen, so I can set the time and know for sure how long I'm using it (the old one had a knob to turn).  Also, I can set different programs based on how long I want to use it, etc.  It's quieter!!  Will still doesn't enjoy watching TV with me while I vest, but I don't have to turn the TV to its max volume!  And, the dogs aren't scared of this one as much!There is only 1 hose...so I'm not tangled up :)And it comes with a rolling case (that looks like a re…

Hello?

I'm back!!!

Unfortunately, I've been MIA due to some family medical stuff.  We had quite a scare with my stepdad.  Thankfully, he is out of the hospital and recovering!  He will be staying with Will and I for a while so we can help nurse him back to health.


I never thought about losing a parent before.  As I grew up, I lost my grandparents and understood that I would have to worry about losing others as they too got older.  But, I never imagined being 30 and having to think about a parent leaving my life.  What a scary thought.  It definitely got me thinking.

Life is precious.  I can't sweat the small stuff.  I shouldn't worry about stupid things that really don't matter.  You never know how much time you have left in this world, so enjoy every moment that you can.  Have fun!  Let those that you love know that you love them.

I am not done with my parents.  I still need them ALL.  I don't think that will ever change though.

Pupdate

My little bully babies are growing up.  Sarge & Stella turned 6 at the beginning of July and T-Bone turned 8 at the end of July.

We celebrated Sarge & Stella's birthday at home with some special treats from the local pet store.  T-Bone got to be at his favorite place on his birthday (our cabin in WV).  Unfortunately I was a bad dog mom and forgot his birthday hat and treat, but he got extra loving and sang to multiple times.

T-Bone had his bi-annual check up just before his birthday and had a good report.  We are changing his eyedrops due to the formula change in what he was using - it was making his eyes red and itchy. And then, in his ear (not the one that just had surgery) we noticed a tick like thing in one of the folds. He got very irritated with us when we messed with it, so thankfully his appointment was the next day, so I figured I'd let them piss him off.  Turns out, its not a tick.  The vet said it looked just like the mass that he saw in his other ear cana…
