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…

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…
