Ranting

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.

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…
