Yesterday. Phew, it’s over.
Miss Lily went in for surgery yesterday morning. They ended up not operating on her knee as the x-ray had shown improvement, but they did complete her vulvoplasty. I never knew they did plastic surgery on dogs…but, alas, they do. I have the drugged up puppy and lofty vet bill to prove it! Hopefully this will help decrease or eliminate her infections. Do ladies always have the short end of the stick or what?! 😉
I know Lily has a lot of fans out there, so if you think of it, please do send wishes for a speedy recovery her way. Poor pooch!! She spent most of the evening whimpering and it just about broke my heart.
THEN we found out we had a stray kitten living in our garage — it was hiding in the undersides of our cars. I wonder how many days the kitty has gone to work and back with Mr. Prevention or I!? We coaxed the kitty out with milk and I hope it found its mommy. The kitty was not friendly or socialized, so it was likely a barn cat that wandered too far away.
THEN I watered my booming garden! Check out its growth in the past week or so!
THEN I made dinner. I had grocery shopped on my lunch break because I knew my last patient of the day would likely run over. At 10am I was craving taco salad, and so that’s what we had!
deer meat seasoned with taco seasoning
1 home grown cherry tomato
Biz’s homemade salsa
2% cheddar cheese
THEN I decided I needed to squeeze in a workout while watching American Idol.
Note to self: Running on a full stomach is NOT a good idea.
I made it a whopping 2 3/4 miles before deciding that was enough of that. Bleck!
THEN we watched The Biggest Loser. I had predicted O’Neal to win the at-home prize and Ashley to win it all. I was wrong on both predictions, but it was still a great finale! Darrel looked AWESOME, as did Sherry and Michael…and all the others! It’s amazing what these contestants accomplish in just a few short months.
While in theory I completely oppose the rate at which the contestants lose weight, the alternative is not preferred. The health problems these people face are life-threatening…most of them are a ticking time bomb. Drastic times call for drastic measures and I think the Biggest Loser does do good in helping contestants regain health in a very speedy fashion. It’s easy for those who don’t weight 484 pounds to sit back and disagree with the methods of the Biggest Loser. While I have my qualms as well (lots of them, trust me!), the seemingly insurmountable task set before these individuals is quickly minimized with rapid success at the scale. It’s frustrating to not see results, and a weight loss jump start is what keeps many of these contestants losing weight at home; they find some success at the ranch and began acquiring the tools they need to succeed in their life-long weight loss journey.
Biggest Loser Fans: Who did you want to win the at-home prize? Who did you want to win the grand prize?
American Idol Fans: Team Lee or Team Crystal?
Half way to Friday,
