May in Review

Well, I haven't been very good at blogging lately.  I say its because I'm having lots of fun :)

First, as my previous post mentioned...I spent a week with my sisters while my parents were on a trip.

We had a great time as always!!  Callie and I went to a trampoline park.  WOW - even going to the gym 4 days a week doesn't prepare you for 30 minutes on a trampoline!!  We did flips (I did them in the foam pit as to not kill myself) and had a blast together!


Then, Callie and I did a 5K!!  It was her first one.  I was so proud of her for taking a chance and running with me.  She even beat me!!! LOL   In my defense, she is 18 years younger and her legs are twice as long as mine ;)


Then, we rewarded ourselves with doughnuts!


The night before I left, the 3 of us gals went out to the Cheesecake Factory!  YUMM! Love that place!

Love my sisters so very much.  Although I didn't get to hang with my parents, it is awesome having that special time with just the gals.

After my New Jersey trip, Will and I took Preston on a special day to celebrate his birthday.  We didn't get to go to the party as we had an out of town wedding, but I think he made out just fine :)  We had lunch, went to the mall, Toys 'R Us and Chuck E. Cheese!!  A fantastic time!! I'm not sure who was more tired - Preston or Will & I.

I also attended a baby shower for a friend from college.  Its always fun seeing my girls and catching up!!

We went to our little buddy, Preston's soccer game!

My SmartVest arrived!!!!!  More on that in another post.

Then, we headed to camp for Memorial Day week!
Sarge rode with me on the way up
Sweet boy loves to ride

While in WV, Julie and I ran in a 5K!  It was a superhero 5K, so we mixed it up a bit and went as Minions :)

All done!
I spent many hours on the deck reading!!  So very relaxing to be here.  Although, a lot of work was done while we were there...we did take time to sit back and enjoy the view.  

The pups love being at camp
We rode our bikes, sat by the river, ate like kings, and enjoyed our family time.

On the way home, we switched and Stella rode with me!

She snored the whole way home!
I was on Cayston at camp and brought my vest!!! I was a good CFer and didn't miss a treatment :)

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…
