So Long Sweets

I must be a glutton for punishment, because I am not only giving up Sour Patch Kids (again) for Lent, but I'm extending it to ALL SWEETS!!  Ahh - already regretting this decision :(  So, farewell to candy, cake, cookies, ice cream, and all the wonderful things I love.  Darn my sweet tooth.

I'm hoping these 40 days of no sweets will help me in my goal to eat smarter and be healthier.  So, I pigged out on sweets on Monday while we were traveling back home from West Palm Beach, FL.  *Side note - Will and I went down to the Honda Classic with some friends and had a blast getting pampered at the spa, relaxing by the pool and of course, watching some golf.  It was nice to see a South Carolina guy win :) *  Then, of course I had to celebrate Fat Tuesday and eat more of my delicious Sour Patch Kids!

Me and the hubs :)
Found these delicious things at the West Palm Beach airport...and of course, I couldn't resist.
So, now I'm on day 3 and doing good.  The good news is I can help ease some of my sweet tooth cravings with fruit!  I've been buying a lot of fruit lately so I can snack on something healthier when I get the munchies.  And I've even been experimenting with smoothies and green drinks.  Surprisingly, I like them...can't get stuck looking at the color, cause it looks like something that came from a dirty diaper.

In other news, tomorrow starts Cayston again.  I swear my 4 weeks off go by way faster then my 4 weeks on.  I'll need to get readjusted to the 3 extra treatments in a day.  I think I can, I think I can!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!  We have some spring cleaning on our agenda.  Taking volunteers to help me declutter!  I'm a bit of a pack rat and Will doesn't save anything.  So its always an interesting time when we combine forces to clean house!

Will and I went on a run this evening and then rewarded ourselves with pizza and beer afterwards!  So much for the  healthy eating...haha!

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…
