Spoiled Rotten

I woke up earlier than usual this morning as Will and I drove to our office in Greenwood (rather than working from home).  Will was a bit lazier than me and stayed in bed for the extra snooze.  So, I got up, went into the bathroom and started getting ready. I was a considerate wife that shut the door when I turned on the lights so that I wouldn't disturb Will too much during his extra few minutes in bed.

A few minutes later, I hear Will get up and then he appears in the bathroom.  Funny thing is, he shut the door behind him.  I stood there for a second thinking "why did he shut the door?"  We don't typically shut doors unless we have company or one of us gets up and doesn't want to disturb the other.  Then, I figured, he didn't want to wake Sophie - THE DOG!  How funny?!?! 

So, our sweet little bulldog stayed sleeping until we were dressed and ready to go.  She gets to come with us on our days in Greenwood, which she loves!

To some people, a dog is just a dog.  But to me (us), Sophie is a part of the family.  I honestly don't know what we would do without her - life would be sooo boring.  She has the ability to crack me up no matter what my mood.  She knows just the right moments to burp or fart - sad to say, yes, these noises make me laugh.  I love that little thing more than I could have ever imagined!

If you haven't hugged your dog today - be sure to give them a squeeze and tell them that you love them - Valentine's Day is on Monday after all!

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…
