Over the weekend, our entire house was in recovery mode.
Lily got home from the vet Friday afternoon, and her surgery went just fine! The spay went smoothly with no complications, and she didn’t even end up coming home with a conehead, like Andy and I were expecting.
The vet told us that our biggest struggle would likely be keeping Lily “quiet”, ie: no play, no running, no sprinting around the house and diving under the couch cushions like a lunatic. That man didn’t know how right he was.
Lily is a very active dog, as Vizslas usually are. So when she got home and was all:
She also has been on a rice and chicken diet, vets orders, and she has been acting like even more of a princess than usual now that it takes me longer to make her meals than it takes me to make most of mine.
She’s really milking this one.
I woke up this morning feeling pretty icky, and I think I’m coming down with something. That, combined with the fact that the weather is looking like this right now called for something special.
It’s not looking like it’ll be improving any time soon…
Do you think I’m going anywhere in this?
I used my favorite recipe, which also happens to be the recipe found on the back of the Hershey’s cocoa box. Real original, I know, but it’s delicious.
Hershey’s Favorite Hot Cocoa
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup Hershey’s Cocoa
dash of salt
1/3 cup hot water
4 cups milk
3/4 tsp vanilla
“Mix cocoa, sugar, water and salt in saucepan. Stir constantly until mixture boils over medium heat; cook and stir 2 minutes. Stir in milk and heat, do not boil. Remove heat; add vanilla. Stir and serve.”
Sooo yummy! Not the healthiest drink on the planet, but it’s a special treat 🙂
Along with the movies and chocolate, I will also spend the day waiting for the bachelor tonight and making sure Lily doesn’t do any more of this:
This is how Andy and I spent our Fitmixer Boot Camp workout on Friday, trying to avoid dealing with Lily’s newfound Rihanna obsession. Ridiculous, but so so funny.
Tell me: What are your plans for the day? Do you have a dancing dog?
