Shades

I haven't had much to say lately, so I've been rather quiet on the blog front.  My apologies if you have been sitting around waiting for me to post (as I'm sure many of you are - jk).  I've been busy doing the normal housewife jobs of laundry, cleaning the house and cooking (well, sometimes).  I've been trying to think what I want to do with myself in my down time.  So, while I was contemplating this pivotal point in my life, I've been reading...

Have you heard of Fifty Shades of Grey?  Well, I've read all three books in the Trilogy this past week! I know they are rather controversial due to the rather risqué story, but I loved them.  I could not put my Kindle down and I think I got on Will's nerves as he asked me several times to put down my porn and listen to him...oops!  I'm happy and sad about finishing the story - heck, I want to know more about the characters and what happens.  (Yes, I am fully aware this is a fictional story).

But, that got me thinking.  I love books that you can't put down, that draw you in and make you feel like you know the characters.  I want to do that!  I know it sounds easier that it really is - but I think it would be pretty awesome to write a book.  I have no clue what I would want to write about - which obviously is a problem - but I think it would be fun to give it a try someday.  Hey, you never know what might happen!

So, in the meantime I'll just enjoy life as is.  I joined the gym this week and have a consultation with a personal trainer tomorrow.  Gonna get this butt in shape!!

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…
