Playing catch up

Looks like I went missing again.  Sorry.  So here's a little run down of what's been going on since my last post.

1) I turned 34!! Woohoo!  I love birthdays!!  We kept it pretty simple - did dinner out with our friends and just enjoyed our time together.

Love my Preston & Lilly!
2) We went to North Dakota!  We visited Will's side of the family which we haven't seen in a VERY long time.  I can't believe it was almost 9 years since I was up there.  How horrible is that?  We had a FABULOUS time celebrating his cousins wedding and just catching up with family.

3) TMI - I got my IUD replaced.  🙈

4) My brother, sister-in-law, nephew and niece visited and of course I cherished every minute.  We didn't get a whole lot of time together, but it was fabulous.  We were able to celebrate their birthdays while they were here.  I've never missed a birthday with them and don't plan on it!

Super heroes!!


5) We went to our cabin in WV for 2 weeks!!!  I totally checked out of life, but man was it awesome. My dad, stepmom & sisters came for a visit while we were there (their first time seeing the place)!

They love camp!
They actually posed themselves!

6) Sarge and Stella celebrated their 6th birthday!!  I don't know how my little butterballs have gotten so old.


7) I went to the cardiologist to see what the deal with my heart fluttering/palpitations (here is where I first talked about them).  My appointment went well.  Unfortunately the palpitations have continued here and there - still don't know why.  So, I will go in 2 weeks for an echocardiogram and will then have a heart monitor for 48 hours.  Hopefully, my heart will misbehave during one of these tests so they can see what its doing.  So, stay tuned on those updates.

That's about it on my end!  Hope everyone is enjoying their summer!

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…
