Fortune Cookies can be right!

Whatever I had yesterday is gone - hallelujah!!! It was horrible, so I'm guessing I must have felt sick from my dinner the night before.  That's a bummer because I was thinking of getting Pei Wei again before I leave :)  My throat isn't bothering me either - felt kind of weird this morning, but went away. 

Speaking of Pei Wei - I had saved a fortune cookie (which I ate tonight).  I'm one of those odd people that actually like them for the taste and not just to read the fortune.  Anyway, my fortune tonight read:
How true is that?

I'm guilty of being a bit dramatic and sometimes life seems horrible and bad things happen, but in the grand scheme of life, its really not a big deal.  I think back to when I was younger and we moved (several times actually), but one of my more traumatic moves was from Atlanta, GA to Charlotte, NC.  I thought my life was ending.  I had so many wonderful friends and truly loved life (and that was middle school).  But, it turns out it was OK.  I met a lot of new friends in Charlotte - one of which is still very near and dear to me.  Then, we moved AGAIN and I really knew my life was ending.  But, I survived!  Its what made me who I am and got me to where I am today.  Had we never moved to South Carolina, I would not have gone to college in South Carolina, nor would I have met Will or many other dear friends.

There is always something that will change and open your eyes to show you that life does go on and teaches you to truly value what is important.  Jobs, houses, cars all come and go.  But, its what you do and who you meet that shape you into a person.  Its the good times to remember - the sleepovers with your friends, the games of UNO with your Grandparents (some of which cheat - love you Pap!!) and the beach trips with your parents.

So, I'm taking this fortune to heart and will not stress on what seems so horrible, because its the good times I want to remember that keep me smiling :)

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.

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 I'm not tangled up :)And it comes with a rolling case (that looks like a re…


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…

Farewell 34

I can't believe my birthday is tomorrow!  My #35daysofdonating challenge has been so fun and rewarding - it feels like it went by so fast.  I loved receiving input from my friends and family about organizations that mean something to them.  I even learned about organizations I didn't know existed.  In the last 34 days (35 tomorrow) I hope I've made a difference somewhere.  I know I didn't get to donate to all the suggested places, and I'm sorry if I missed one you wanted!  I wish funds were endless and I could do this every day forever!!!

You can check out my list of recipients here.
