In the spirit of Valentine's Day

*Disclaimer - this may be a bit sappy for some of you out there...sorry! *

Love...it's an interesting thing.  There are several types of love.  Love can change.  Love can end.  You can "love" and you can be "in love".

Yesterday marked 10 years that Will and I had our first date.  Hard to believe he's been around 1/3 of my life...really, hard to believe he's put up with me for that long!  I was thinking about the first time we said those infamous 3 words - "I love you".  I truly thought I was in love and I could picture him in my life.  I enjoyed spending time with him and cherished our relationship.  Now, I look at how our love has changed and grown.  Perhaps it was just "puppy love" I initially felt.  When we got engaged - I just couldn't imagine being able to love someone anymore.  And now after six and a half years of marriage, I know I love him even more.  Its a love that I can't imagine not having.  I wouldn't know what to do without him in my life...as cliche as it may sound, but he's my rock.  He keeps me grounded and gives me that reality check when I need one.

Love lets you see past any imperfections.  Love allows you to accept someone for who they are.  And boy am I thankful to have found someone that can see past my imperfections.  I've found someone that doesn't look at me as someone with Cystic Fibrosis, instead he sees me for me.

He can see past my bad manors; he puts up with my bad habits; he laughs at my moments of cluelessness; he accepts me and my sailor mouth (I'd say he contributed in developing it); and he challenges me to be a better person.

I'm fortunate to love and be loved.  There's nothing better than having someone you can share your innermost thoughts with and yet be able to goof off and have fun!

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…
