A part of me lives in Indiana

I have a love-hate relationship with flying.  I am terrified of a plane crash.  But, I love how fast I can get to all the places I want to go.  Two weekends ago, I had the joy of visiting my precious niece and nephew (my brother and sister-in-law too!).  I flew up on Thursday morning before the sun even came up.  It was a great weekend!! I got lots of quality play time and snuggle time in.  We did some spring cleaning and organizing too!  I love organizing - although you might not think that when you look at my house ;)  It's more fun with other peoples stuff - I have not sentimental attachments so I'm all for purging! My 'stuff' on the other hand - I like to hoard!

Here are some pics from our weekend together.
Good Morning from the Atlanta Airport


Yes, we play with bubbles even when there is snow on the ground!
I thought about sneaking her home in my suitcase ;)
Her cute trick - clapping when we say "Yay, Allie!!"
The chaos of trying to get 2 little ones to look for a picture
This kid has me wrapped around his little finger! I know never what he's going to say next! But I can be assured it will be hilarious!
We headed to the airport Sunday afternoon.  We got there early so we could sit in the food court area, snack and let Adam watch the planes.  He loves them!

I hate saying goodbye.  I did better this time and didn't cry.  Well, not til I was on the plane taking off.    Then, I was the crazy person crying on a plane...lol.  But, I was so thankful for a beautiful and smooth flight.  I took that time to reflect on how lucky I am.  I'm beyond blessed to be an Aunt.  I'm blessed to have an amazing family.  Looking out at the clouds,  all the craziness of life disappeared.  I don't know how you can look at those sights and not find peace.

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…

CF Updates

Greetings friends!

I had the pleasure of going to my quarterly CF appointment on Tuesday.  It was originally scheduled for 11/15 but being that my sinus funk is still lingering around, I wanted to move it up a bit.  (the original funk started here)

I finished my round of Cipro on 10/29.  And still had a head full of congestion, sore throat and ears. Bummer.  I thought I was starting to feel better for a split second, but it didn't last.  Thankfully, my lungs were still feeling good :)  We were at our cabin in WV that weekend and I skipped my vest and HTS, but thankfully didn't suffer.

So, I headed in to the doc on Tuesday.  My PFTs are holding stable so that makes me happy!  More on that in a minute.  During my exam, she could see there was still fluid in my ears along with my red throat.  Plus my face was super puffy and my eyes felt as if they were going to pop out of my head.

So, the plan of attack is this:

1) Take Levaquin 750mg for 14 days
2) Get back on my Claritin dail…

CFF Blog Post

I was honored when the CF Foundation approached me to write a blog about our decision to not have children.  As a reader, you know how much we love our dogs and feel fully blessed by having them.  So, why not share it with the whole CF community?!!

Check out the blog post here.


I was shocked to see how many responses appeared on the FB.  We had likes, loves, wows and sad faces...thankfully not mad faces.

I enjoyed reading the comments...of course most everyone was very supportive and shared their decisions on having or not having kids.  But in typical social media fashion, people take things to the extreme or can't keep rude thoughts to themselves.  So, I wanted to take a minute to give some feedback.


1) I'm 99% sure we would have came to this decision even if I didn't have CF.  Every couple makes a decision whether or not to expand their family.

2) We aren't irresponsible in our delay of having Will tested for the genes...its called birth control people.  And EVERYONE…
