I feel like I blinked and July is almost over...wow!  Its been a busy two weeks with my trip to Dallas, then last week I was on vacation in Destin, Florida.  It was a much needed break from work and life.  I pretty much checked out for the week - which was wonderful.  However, I'm dreading work tomorrow as I'll be a week behind - ahh!  Sometimes vacations make work even more stressful.

The night I got back from Dallas (7/15), there was a minor league baseball game which supported the CF Foundation.  So Will and I, along with some friends went out to the game.  It was a lot of fun...but I forgot to take pictures - oops!  The 15th was also our 5th anniversary - hard to believe its been that long.  Its great having a partner in life that always has your back and keeps you straight...don't know what I'd do without Will!  So, in honor of our anniversary - here's a few wedding pics:

Venting

Well, I made it to Dallas.  Needless to say, its hot...yes, even hotter than South Carolina.  Fortunately I don't leave the office all day so I miss the peak of the heat.

On the flight here, I had a revelation.  People are gross.  I guess I knew this already, but it escalated.  There was constant sneezing, coughing, sniffing and various other bodily noises throughout the flight.  A teenager was in the row in front of me with his parents and he was sniffing and coughing to the point where it just about gagged me!  Then, I noticed his nose was bleeding and he had bloody tissues everywhere - yuck!  I felt kind of bad for him and ashamed that I was shooting nasty looks into the back of his seat, but it was so gross.  Then, he told the flight attendant that he got blood on the seat belt - at least he asked for something to clean it, but its blood - be more careful!  God only knows whats on those planes that we come in contact with.  Wouldn't it be nice to be able to flight privatel…

Cayston Time

These past 4 weeks have snuck up on me - where does the time go?  I'll be starting my Cayston treatments on Saturday.  I ordered my meds on Tuesday (from the CF Pharmacy, which I highly recommend) and it arrived on Wednesday.  Very fast and efficient.  I'm rather paranoid so I always order several days before just to ensure there is plenty of time for everything to arrive.


The past 4 weeks, I would say my health has been just fine being off the treatments.  Although, I was coughing in my sleep two nights ago & I'm coughing a bit now. Generally, I don't feel like I cough that much...I guess I do more than the average person...but I don't really notice.  That would be a good challenge to see how much I actually cough on a daily basis.

The only downside of my treatments this time is that I'll be traveling...again :(.  I'm off to Dallas on Sunday for work & I'll get home Friday morning.  So, I get to pack up all my goodies and add them to my already…

A New Normal

Life has changed a lot in the past month - we have developed a new normal.  Its sleeping in; its spur of the moment trips or just going away for a night; its a clean house!  But its not going on walks; its not having dog beds and toys everywhere; its just not as full of happiness (don't get me wrong, Will & I are still happily married, just missing some extra happiness).
I miss my old normal of getting up to let Sophie out and feed her.  I miss begging Will to take Sophie out when its raining (didn't always get my wish though).  I miss making sure I get home to feed her dinner and take her for a walk.  I miss tripping on toys in the middle of the night as I wander to the bathroom. Life is just a lot quieter.
Well folks - this is going to change soon!  I'm happy to announce that we've been talking with a breeder about getting not one, but TWO puppies - English Bulldogs, of course.  The good news is: they were born yesterday!!!  We want to get a brother and sister to m…

On the water

Greetings! Hopefully everyone had a safe and fun 4th of July!  Mine was great - my older brother & his girlfriend are in town, so we spent the weekend visiting my mom's place.  We went out on the lake Sunday, then stayed by the pool on Monday.  I was either in a bathing suit or pajamas - fabulous!

Here are some shots of our fun times:
We played some Wiffle Ball Homerun Derby too - I actually won - woohoo!!  That has never happened before so I must boast a bit :) 

I haven't shared the pics from our deep sea fishing trip a few weekends back.  Didn't catch much, but it was great!  I was pretty nervous because I don't like the ocean and was terrified to not see the shore.  However, I survived and would do it again...maybe.
        I've decided I am a land girl.  Not so big on flying, and definitely don't want to be on the water for extended periods of time...good ole solid ground is what I like best!
