I saw snow!

I'm sitting here catching up on the Ellen episodes I missed while I was out of town last week :)  Love Ellen!!!  And Channing Tatum just came on - yay, can't wait for Magic Mike XXL!! LOL - am I too old for that?  

ANYWAY!  I was off to Indiana last week to visit my fabulous family.  It was a blast, but I'm exhausted.  I don't know how you parents do it.  Definitely not made for kids here - I need sleep and 'me time'.  LOL.  But, I'd never pass up a minute with my precious nephew.  We had a great week hanging out, playing with toys, reading books, and looking for 'reindeer' (thats what he calls deer that are in the yard).  I also got to go to my sister-in-law's ultrasound (yep, I'm gonna be an aunt AGAIN!).  What a cool experience!!  I got to see 10 tiny toes and 10 tiny fingers, plus I heard the beautiful heartbeat.  Words can't explain what a miracle pregnancy is.

Here are some pics from my trip:
Playing with his train
Loved seeing snow!
Looking at the 'reindeer'
Couldn't love him more!
So, I got home last night to find my sweet bully babies ready to play.  And who wouldn't want to play fetch at 9 pm in the back yard?!  Love my pups!!
Everyone wants my attention
Sadly, I was a bad patient on my trip.  I didn't take my vest (I did fly, so that's my excuse).  I did take my HTS, but never did it :( WTF?  What's wrong with me?  I hate it when I'm lazy about my care.  I ate my weight in Sour Patch Kids, plus lots of other junk food, and drank lots of pop.  Oh my!  

I've noticed not doing my vest that I have extra gunk in my lungs.  My cough has increased and it sounds like there is crap rattling around in there.  AHHH!  So, I'm about to bust out the vest now and get it out!!

  1. Cute nephew! If it helps, the hubby and I went through airport security with a G5 flimm fighter and nuk sanitizer last year and they let it through once we specified it was medical equipment. Not gunna say it was easy or quick, but you could probably get your vest through next time if you think it'd be worth the trouble.

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…
