Welcome 2015

Happy New Year!  The conclusion of 2014 was a whirlwind.  We did some traveling to visit family and then got home after the new year which leads into a LONG list of things to start getting done. Yuck!

First and foremost, a pupdate!  All is going well!  They behaved like good little bullies for their sitters while we were gone -whew, I was nervous!!  They are really making some progress on getting along and even playing together.  It makes me smile from ear to ear :)  Stella developed a cyst on her foot which was treated with an antibiotic now and is looking much better.  Hopefully it will be OK and she won't need to have it surgically removed.  Then, T-Bone had a follow up appointment on his eyes and ears. Still doing the drops in his eyes, but his new meds are working great for him.  His ear infection has cleared up so we just have to keep a close watch on them to keep them good and clean.  Sarge is just Sarge - loving life and feeling great!

For my health - I'm definitely 100% over the creeping crud that struck me before Christmas.  I'm back on my workout schedule at the gym 5 days a week and feeling great!! Will unfortunately came home from his first work trip of 2015 feeling a bit under the weather, but I was a good wife and took care of him.  I even cooked dinner all weekend - some beef stew and then spaghetti and meatballs - yummy!

Thankfully, we don't have any trips planned for January, so I have lots of time to get some work done around the house.  I'm in one of those moods where I want to throw everything away...which is highly unlike me, I tend to be more on the pack rat side.  So far, I've cleaned out my closet and have a few garbage bags of stuff to donate!  Now, to go through old files...yuck!

I haven't uploaded my pics from the holidays yet, so here's one of my babies :)

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.

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 I'm not tangled up :)And it comes with a rolling case (that looks like a re…


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…

Farewell 34

I can't believe my birthday is tomorrow!  My #35daysofdonating challenge has been so fun and rewarding - it feels like it went by so fast.  I loved receiving input from my friends and family about organizations that mean something to them.  I even learned about organizations I didn't know existed.  In the last 34 days (35 tomorrow) I hope I've made a difference somewhere.  I know I didn't get to donate to all the suggested places, and I'm sorry if I missed one you wanted!  I wish funds were endless and I could do this every day forever!!!

You can check out my list of recipients here.

To recap my 34th year on this are some pictures of my favorite moments.
