A bit of motivation

Do you ever get tired of your clothes?  I imagine most girls go through this at some point.  I just stand in my closet (which is full of stuff) and just don't have anything to wear.  I find I wear the same old stuff every day and I'm getting annoyed with it.  Most days I'm in my PJs til lunch time (the luxury of working from home).  When I finally get dressed, its usually just some bummy shorts and a tee (if I have no where to go other than the grocery store or tanning bed).  Even when I do have somewhere to go, my attire barely improves...I put on khakis/jean shorts and a rather plain cotton shirt.  I look put together but its nothing fabulous.  I'm sick of it! 

So, I am vowing not to buy anymore of the same crap I have.  I want to add some skirts, sundresses, cute shorts and nicer tops to my attire for this summer!  I demand a change!  However, this means I have to go spend some money.  I'll suck it up and do it because I need to.  Some gals just always look so cute and put together - I want to be one of them :)  I want to add some style to my life.  So my fashionista friends - help a girl out!

My sudden annoyance with the status quo has provided some motivation to work on the house too.  We moved in December and I still haven't finished some rooms.  My living room is missing a picture (or 2) to go above the couch as well as an accent chair.  Then, my kitchen has a big blank wall that I need to fill with something...but not sure what.  I'll at least feel a bit more satisfied when I get these main rooms done.  Then, I can worry about the master bedroom and guestroom, plus some blank walls in the hallway.  I have motivation - now I just need to figure out what the heck I want and buy it!

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…

CF Updates

Greetings friends!

I had the pleasure of going to my quarterly CF appointment on Tuesday.  It was originally scheduled for 11/15 but being that my sinus funk is still lingering around, I wanted to move it up a bit.  (the original funk started here)

I finished my round of Cipro on 10/29.  And still had a head full of congestion, sore throat and ears. Bummer.  I thought I was starting to feel better for a split second, but it didn't last.  Thankfully, my lungs were still feeling good :)  We were at our cabin in WV that weekend and I skipped my vest and HTS, but thankfully didn't suffer.

So, I headed in to the doc on Tuesday.  My PFTs are holding stable so that makes me happy!  More on that in a minute.  During my exam, she could see there was still fluid in my ears along with my red throat.  Plus my face was super puffy and my eyes felt as if they were going to pop out of my head.

So, the plan of attack is this:

1) Take Levaquin 750mg for 14 days
2) Get back on my Claritin dail…

CFF Blog Post

I was honored when the CF Foundation approached me to write a blog about our decision to not have children.  As a reader, you know how much we love our dogs and feel fully blessed by having them.  So, why not share it with the whole CF community?!!

Check out the blog post here.


I was shocked to see how many responses appeared on the FB.  We had likes, loves, wows and sad faces...thankfully not mad faces.

I enjoyed reading the comments...of course most everyone was very supportive and shared their decisions on having or not having kids.  But in typical social media fashion, people take things to the extreme or can't keep rude thoughts to themselves.  So, I wanted to take a minute to give some feedback.


1) I'm 99% sure we would have came to this decision even if I didn't have CF.  Every couple makes a decision whether or not to expand their family.

2) We aren't irresponsible in our delay of having Will tested for the genes...its called birth control people.  And EVERYONE…
