Counting Down

I love counting down to big events!  And I have a few coming up!

Easter -just 4 more days!!!
Woohoo!  Then, I can eat sweets again.  I just can't wait!  I have decided that I will try to keep my sweets to a minimum from now on, but not give them up totally!  To assist my goal here, I am vowing not to buy myself any candy, but will definitely eat any people give me.  So, if you want to get me some candy - go for it!  I love Sour Patch Kids (as you all know), SweetTarts, Reese's Peanut Butter cups...heck, pretty much everything!  LOL

Great Strides - 2 weeks and 3 days!
I'm so happy that CF Stinks has hit $8,000 towards our $10,000 goal - yay!! I know we can do it!!  If you would like to help us reach our goal, you can donate here: http://fightcf.cff.org/goto/cfstinks



My Birthday - 7 weeks and 1 day
I can't believe I will be 31.  I was so shocked and stressed about 30, I feel like I blinked and its about done.  Here's hoping I get to have another fun celebration :)  I'm thinking Vegas sounds fun!!


A New Vest - not sure how long...
I've started the insurance approval process for my new vest! Yay!! This old beast I have will be going out the door.  Hopefully soon than later.  I spoke with a rep from SmartVest yesterday and we are moving forward!  Let's hope insurance will help out *fingers crossed*.  I often find myself in the position where they think I am "too healthy" and don't need certain things.  Well, I am where I am because I take care of myself!! So, fork over the SmartVest!!

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…
