Catching up on the CrAzInEsS !!


We moved! Well, technically our move isn't complete.  We moved out of our old house, but aren't in a new house yet.  All our stuff is in storage until we have a new place to move into.  So, where are we?  We are up at our cabin in West Virginia.  Not Virginia...West Virginia.  It drives me bonkers when people call it Virginia.  It's like calling South Carolina, North Carolina.  Different states people!  Sorry, I digressed.  This week, I'm up visiting in Indiana while Will and the pups are enjoying cabin life.

Things have been a whirlwind.  We started packing, then we had packers finish the rest and move our things to storage.  The good thing is that our cabin is just like being home.  I don't have all of my "stuff" but I have what I need - a kitchen, a bed, washer/dryer, tv, and internet (although its crappy).

Last week, I cooked 4 dinners in a row.  That's a record for me...haha!  Being 15-20 mins from town makes running out for a quick dinner not as easy.  So last week, I did good and planned our meals ahead.  I had to do a big shopping cause I only was going to town once.  At home in SC, I run to the grocery store most days just to grab a few things and whatever I may cook for dinner that day.  I know, not super efficient.

Stella managed to hurt her leg while we have been in WV.  So, she and I went to the vet on Friday.  Looks like a torn ACL (not sure if its full or partial).  She's on strict rest and has to be carried up and down the stairs  (much easier if we were in SC, as we only had about 5 to get off the back deck.  At the cabin, we have lots.  Poor Will!).  Hopefully she won't need surgery.  We will see how she does in a few weeks with some joint/ligament supplements and Rimadyl.

What else?  My vest reached its 200 hour mark! Wow!! I was shocked.  It gave me a notice that I needed a new filter.  I called the SmartVest number it said to and they had one in the mail.  Unfortunately I left for Indiana before it arrived, so I'll have to replace it when I get back this coming weekend.  

Speaking of the vest.  I changed up my settings a bit because I was feeling extra congestion in my lungs (I think due to all the dust while packing/moving).  So I'm now doing 20 Hz at 65% for 30 minutes.  I like it.  It's definitely shaking more stuff loose.  Two downsides to it: 1 - it's hot!  The more vigorous vibration must make the air warmer in the vest, so I sweat a bit while vesting.  2) it hurts my boobs.  So, got to make sure I'm wearing a good supportive bra.  Guys are lucky, they don't have to worry about their boobs getting beat up!

And you may be wondering when we will move to a new house.  And the answer is: I don't know!  Eek!!  We have a house back in SC that we are planning to buy when it's done getting a makeover, but we don't know when that will be yet.  Probably in November.  I'll be shouting it from the rooftops when I know when I have a new place to live!!  In the meantime, we are going to enjoy the fall in WV.  Couldn't ask for a better time of year to be "stuck" at our cabin!

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…
