No Will Power and Other Shenanigans

Now that Easter is over and I can eat sweets again, I have no will power :(  I ate TWO bags of Sour Patch Kids on Easter...who does that?  There hasn't been a day where I haven't had Sour Patch Kids or some form of candy since then.  Oh my!  I even bought myself some when I said I wouldn't.  I'm a failure :/  Oh well, guess there are worse things I could do!

On another note, CF STINKS HAS REACHED $10,000 FOR THE GREAT STRIDES WALK!!!!!  I'm so happy!!  I can't believe we have raised over $10,000 for 2 years in a row...wow!  I am looking forward to a great event on Saturday.  So, please be thinking of us!    And thank you so very much to my wonderful supporters!!

This past weekend, we visited some friends in Johnson City, TN.  They had a baby back in October and we still had not met him, so we were happy to meet sweet Nolan!  Isn't he a cute fella?!?! 
Having fun playing!

We went on a hike!
First time on the Appalachian Trail!
Whitney, Bryan, Nolan, Will & I

What else have I missed sharing?!?!

I did another 5K on April 19th.  It was Miles for Melanoma.  I was happy to do this in memory of my Munner which we lost in October due to Melanoma.  I finished in 34 minutes 22 seconds.  Not my best time, but I was OK with it.  I finished 4th out of 12 in my age bracket and 60th overall (200+ participants).  I'm not sure if that is good or not, but I'll take it :)  I won't lie, it felt pretty rough running - I hadn't been running to prepare myself, shame on me.

All done!

That's pretty much it!  Looking forward to a great walk this weekend!  I'll share pics soon!

Thanks for reading :)

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…
