Always Something

Its been one of those weeks and its only Tuesday.  The weekend was mostly great - we got some much needed yard work done on the house, but didn't get to ride our bikes due to the rain on Saturday.  Then, Sunday afternoon, my friend and I threw a baby shower for another friend at my house.  It was the first time lots of my friends had been to the new house so that was exciting, however, it was lots of cleaning before and after - but well worth it.

But my little brother was in a car accident Sunday as well :(  He is just fine (THANK GOD) and so is his friend that was with him and the guy in the other car.  Unfortunately, both vehicles were totalled.  This is his second car accident in 6 months - I feel bad for my parents and the insurance premium they are about to get hit with - plus he's only 16.  This just proves teenagers are not the best drivers - accidents happen, but goodness!  This is why I do not ride with him - haha!  I swear this boy will be the death of me - he causes to much stress and worry!

Then, I started with the sniffles yesterday.  I think someone must have shared their germs with me this weekend, but I keep telling myself "I'm not getting sick!".  So far, I'm staying strong!!

And then, not to keep sounding like Eeyore, but my poor Sophie had to go to the vet - AGAIN.  She has a bad heart, which is not new news...she's had a murmur for most of her life - graded 3 to 4.  But, now that she's 6, the vet recommended some X-rays and an EKG to see how things are going....not so fabulous.  Her heart is enlarged and working overtime, so now she's going to be on some heart meds.  Her vet is sending the results to a doggy cardiologist for further review, so we are waiting those results and the plan of attack to keep my girl healthy.  Her behavior is fine (well, she has energy, not the most obedient bulldog, that's for sure), so he said not to be too worried at this point.  Keeping my fingers crossed that just a pill will do the trick! 

On a positive note, I've picked up on my fundraising for the Great Strides walk in May!  We are just about to hit $2,000 - aren't my family and friends AWESOME!! 

That's all for now - have a great rest of the week!  I'll keep you posted when I hear about my Sophie girl :)

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…
