Giving Thanks

I noticed on Facebook that people are posting what they are thankful for each day, so I figured I would just incorporate it into my blog :)  I'm a few days behind now, so just a bit of back tracking to do:

Day 1:  I'm thankful that Stella is getting better.  Her vet appt was Nov. 1st and she's making progress, just needs another week on the meds.  I did get peed on by her this day, but I'm still thankful to have her :)

Day 2:  I am thankful for my Daddy - his birthday is Nov. 2nd.  Although I don't see him as much as I want, its great to know he's always there!  I'm looking forward to our Daddy/Daughter trip next weekend!! Woohoo!!

Day 3:  I am thankful for my lungs.  Although they aren't the best at times, I'm still glad to have them!  I've missed a few Zumba classes the past two weeks due to other plans and a few lazy evenings, but I went back and loved it...so did my lungs!

Day 4:  I'm so very thankful that the puppies decided to sleep until 7:30am today which makes my Friday even better.  They have been getting up between 6 and 6:30 am this week, which is highly unusual for them.  So the extra sleep has made my day!  I don't function very well on less than 8 hours of sleep a night, so I've been a bit drained from the early rising.  I'm hoping this means they are getting back to the old schedule of 7-7:30 am wake ups.

I hope everyone has a great weekend - Happy Friday!!

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…
