Days 14 - 16

Day 14:  I'm thankful for my special little buddy, Preston.  I've claimed him as my Godson and nephew :)  I love that little fellow like crazy and he can put a smile on my face like no other.  He's just about 3 1/2, and let me tell you that this age is a blast!  I've always been partial to the baby stage, but he's making the toddler stage so fun!  Granted, I don't live with him and get to avoid the occasional 3 year old melt-downs, but he's always been a very pleasant and personable little guy.  It seems like over night, but he just talks and talks...and I have no idea where he gets some of his stuff.  Will and I went to dinner this week with Matt, Brandy and Preston and we were talking about being boys and girls.  The conversation went something like this:

Me:  Preston, are you a boy or a girl?
Preston:  Boy!  (and of course he says it in the cutest way...he manages to turn a one-syllable word into two syllables - lol)
Me: What is Daddy?
Preston:  Boy!
Me:  What is Uncle Will?
Preston: Boy!
Me:  What is Mommy?
Preston:  Girl!
Me:  What is Digga? (thats what he calls me)
Preston: Girl!
Me: What is Stella?
Preston:  slight pause.... A Dog!!

I was speechless...he's just too smart for me!!

Day 15:  I'm thankful for sisterhood.  Tonight my sorority (it's actually a women's fraternity, but sorority is less confusing for most people) celebrated Thanksgiving with our Alumnae chapter and the local collegiate chapter.  I'm fortunate to be a part of such an amazing organization that has helped to mold me into the person I am today.  After our feast, a group of alumnae went to see Breaking Dawn Part 2!  Yes, we were the 20-somethings at the theater with the tweens...and we are just fine with that.  Great show - can't wait to see it again :)  Its nice to have some girls that you can always rely on and these lovely ladies are just that!! \^^^/

Day 16:  I'm thankful for date night with my wonderful husband.  Yes, we eat together most nights, just the two of us, but he consciously makes an effort to have an official date night every other week or so.  We'll get dressed up, like when we were dating, and go out for dinner...and if we're up to it a movie.  Tonight's date night consisted of trying a new place (new to us, anyway).  We splurged on an app, salads, main dish and dessert!!  After we were stuffed to the gills, we headed home and are now catching up on some TV shows we recorded through the week.  After 6 years of marriage, its nice to feel appreciated and keep the spark going :)

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…
