Ready for Easter

I'm beyond ready for Easter!  I can bust out my new white pants which I've been dying to wear and can devour my stash of Sour Patch Kids.  I actually did it - I didn't have a single one.  I almost had some Sour Patch Jelly Beans, but figured that my be cheating, so I saved them for Sunday too!  Every time I open the pantry, I have 3 bags staring back at me - ahh, the torture.  But I kept them there on purpose to show myself I can do it!  So on Easter, I'm thinking one bag for breakfast, one for lunch and the other for dinner.

Darn the Easter candy aisles though.  I was strolling down one the other day and it was torturous!  Not only have I given up Sour Patch Kids, I'm trying to watch what I eat in general so I can get in better shape.  I just wanted to eat everything in sight, even the stuff I don't like.  I bought some goodies for my friends/family BUT NOT FOR ME OR WILL.  I came home and munched on some carrots to fight off my cravings - not so yummy when you wish they were candy.  Sunday will be here soon enough and I'll binge on all the goodies from the Easter bunny :)

Just concluded week 1 of no Cayston and I'm feeling great :)  Although, I keep feeling like I'm forgetting to do something...then I have to tell myself I'm not - its my off time!

Got the results from Sophie's cardiologist and he confirmed her vet's findings of an enlarged heart and prescribed some meds....Enalapril (7.5mg - twice a day) & Spironolactone (25mg - once per day).  Before long, she's going to be taking as many pills as me :(  She's still acting as her normal self, so I'm trying to be positive and keep our spirits up that all will be OK.

Just started reading a new book, "Something Borrowed" by Emily Griffin (I think - don't have it in front of me).  I saw the preview for the movie that's coming out & I like to read the books first, just so I can critique the movie and find all the differences.  Speaking of movies - can't wait to see "Water for Elephants".  I read the book a year or so ago not even knowing about the movie.  Looks like Will better be planning some date nights for us!

Hope everyone has a fun and safe Easter!!

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…
