Perhaps I've been extra cranky lately, but it seems like things get more and more annoying to me.  I've been making a mental list of things that drive me bonkers and I figured I would share them with you all :)

1) People not cleaning the gym equipment.  A-nnoy-ing!  I mean, they put the disinfectant spray and paper towels all over the place, so use it people!!!  Wipe your nasty sweat off the treadmills and all the other equipment you use...why do I have to touch your dirty bodily fluid?!

2) Men wearing spandex.  Eek!  Ok - Michael Phelps can wear his spandex swimsuit, but I can't really think of anyone else that would make it appropriate...especially at the gym.  I've been seeing this guy lately, probably late 60s, early 70s and he is just as happy as can be prancing around in his spandex shorts at the gym.  Sooo gross.

3) People smoking while my car windows are down.  The weather has been extra great lately and I drive around with my windows down enjoying the weather.  But, when I pull up to a red light or next to someone thats smoke, it comes in my car!  So, I have to be inconvenienced and roll up my windows.  Sends me to the moon some days.

4) Inconsiderate smokers.  I know several smokers that are very considerate of others, especially me, which I am thankful.  But, man, there are some rude ass people out that there that are unconscious that they are stinking up my air.  I was in New York City for a night this past weekend and could not believe the smokers.  I thought NYC was supposed to be hip and setting trends?!?!  There were people everywhere with the cigarettes...walking down the road, standing in front of office buildings, everywhere I looked.  And of course, they could care less who was walking by or where they blew out their stinky air.

5) People not holding up to their commitments.  When you say you are going to do something or be somewhere - do it.  Enough said.

6) People not taking care of their animals.  Perhaps I follow too many rescue sites on Facebook, but its depressing seeing all these poor animals without homes.  I just read about a dog that someone found in a trash can...some a-hole threw her out.  Surprisingly, she is extremely emaciated, but alive!

Well, that's enough negativity for one night :)  Sweet dreams!

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.

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 I'm not tangled up :)And it comes with a rolling case (that looks like a re…


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…

Farewell 34

I can't believe my birthday is tomorrow!  My #35daysofdonating challenge has been so fun and rewarding - it feels like it went by so fast.  I loved receiving input from my friends and family about organizations that mean something to them.  I even learned about organizations I didn't know existed.  In the last 34 days (35 tomorrow) I hope I've made a difference somewhere.  I know I didn't get to donate to all the suggested places, and I'm sorry if I missed one you wanted!  I wish funds were endless and I could do this every day forever!!!

You can check out my list of recipients here.

To recap my 34th year on this are some pictures of my favorite moments.
