What a Croc!

So, I am probably one of the last people on earth to own a pair of Crocs.  The truth is, I despise them.  I think they are the ugliest shoes I have ever seen in my life and think anyone that wears them is a dork! 


My dad wore the flip flop Crocs at the beach this summer & I just laughed at him.  But, he swore they were comfortable...infact, everyone that I've spoken to that owns Crocs swears they are the most comfortable shoe.  That did not persuade me!

With the pups, Will and I are constantly going in and out and need a shoe that we can slip on and off easily.  Flip flops - perfect!  Well, only for the summer.  Now that its getting a bit colder and if it has rained, flip flops plain old suck to wear outside.  So, Will and I have been racking our brains and searching far and wide for a shoe that we can slip on and off quickly and keep our feet dry/warm in these colder months.  Sadly to say, the only thing we could find were Crocs - ahhhhhhh!!

So, we bit the bullet and purchased a $39.95 pair each.  What the heck is up with that outrageous price?!?!  They had kid ones that were $29.95 - no way in hell would I pay that for a kid that outgrows shoes so fast.  I'm not a cheapskate, but I prefer to at least like the items I spend money on.  Anyway, we both bought the ones that are lined with faux fur.  I was honestly embarrased to buy these at the register...it was like checking out with tampons or condoms! haha

They have worked rather well though.  We took them on our camping trip this past weekend as well, so we can slip them on and off when coming in and out of the camper.  Sad to say, I wore the blasted things all weekend! They were the only shoes I wore!! OMG!  I even went out in public to the store in them...what has the world come to?!?  But, they are the most comfortable things ever...it doesn't even feel like I have shoes on...its fabulous.  See, we got busted and had a picture taken of us wearing them :(


So, I must eat a little crow.  I still think they are the ugliest shoes ever, but I'll wear them anyway...granted you probably won't see me wearing them in public where we live...I just do that when I know I won't run into anyone I know :)

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…
