Pink & Blue

It finally feels like winter today.  Its cloudy and a chilly 32 degrees here, which is shocking considering the 70+ degree weather  we've had the few weeks prior.  I'm cozy in my flannel pants and sweatshirt sitting on the couch looking at the fire blazing in the fireplace.  The pups are snoozing on their bed and I'm watching reruns of Sex and the City...ah the life :)  The only thing I'm missing is my cup of hot chocolate.

I've been hoping for colder weather and now that its here, I can't wait for summer.  Not because of the warm weather, but because of the exciting events that will be taking place.  I'll be turning 30, which isn't exactly exciting because I don't feel like I'm that old.  But, as advised, I'm trying to be happy and celebrate because it means people with CF are living longer healthier lives.  Another exciting event is that my little brother is graduating high school.  I'm proud of him and look forward to his new chapter of life in college.

But, most of all, I'm excited because I'll be welcoming not one, but two new babies into my life.  My brother and sister-in-law are expecting and so is my best friend, Brandy (and her husband Matt too)!!  They are due a day apart - wow!!  I'm going to be busy shopping for lots of baby goodies!  Michael and Amanda have found out what they are having, but I can't disclose it cause my dad wants to be surprised...thats a hard secret to keep, but I'm going to try!  Brandy and Matt will know on Friday, so I'll either be buying 2 of everything or both pink & blue...yay!

I'm trying to avoid baby fever with everyone else having babies.  So far, so good.  A little retail therapy and I should stay good :)

Hope everyone has a great week!

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…
