WOW! It's only Tuesday! Time tends to move slowly when you are looking forward to something. That is how it works for me anyway.
We are off in another world, okay another state, but still. McD had a business meeting this week, and if I actually had a job I would not have been able to join him. So, I am kind of glad I am not working right now.
I am ready for Thursday! Why? Well, it might sound silly to some people, but I miss my girls! I miss Abby a little bit more than Mia right now, and that might sound horrible but that is how it is people. I do have a good reason though. Little Abby had her ears cropped yesterday morning. I was all out of sorts yesterday because I wasn't there for her. It drove me nuts! So I decided to call the vet clinic and check on her. That is normal, right? When the very nice lady answered the phone I told her who was calling, and then I told her that I was the worried mother calling to check on Abby. I heard her smile. Really, you CAN hear people smile over the phone, and she smiled. She said that it wasn't a problem and she went to check on Abby for me. She came back and told me that Abby was just waking up, but that I could call back that afternoon. How sweet was that?
We went to lunch at the Cherry Cricket and loved it! I don't mean loved it. I mean LOVED it! This is the very first place we have been that actually cooked the hamburgers as ordered. Back where we are from if you order a Medium hamburger it is still Well Done. Here, oh my word, if you order a Well Done hamburger you get a Well Done hamburger. If you order a Medium hamburger it is MEDIUM! It was THE best hamburger I have ever had. Oh my, I might need to go back today. If you are ever in the Denver area you must, MUST go there.
After lunch we ran into some people we kind of sort of know real well, so we had to stop and visit. I was chomping at the bit to go call and check on Abby again. Oh, but I must be nice and friendly first. I had to tell myself that several times, especially when it turned to shop talk and I was just holding down a chair. All of these people are very nice, and they tried to include me in the conversation as much as possible and I tried to look interested. Ever had to do that? Try to look interested? Normally, I would have been interested. Yesterday, they were talking as a group mind you, it wasn't a one-on-one conversation or I would have paid better attention. But as they were talking I was saying a prayer for Abby.
Poor Abby! It is her first time to be boarded at the vet, and she gets her ears done, and I'm not there to spoil her. I mean take care of her, hold her and make her pancakes with syrup favorite meal. Yes, I felt guilty!
We finally escaped broke away from the group to go on a walk. We did go on a walk, but we called to check on Abby right away. And I think I fell for McD all over again when he said, "Would you call and check on Abby?" He missed her, and wished he could be there for her too. He didn't say that in so many words, but he tried to make me feel guilty for leaving her so I knew he felt the guilt pangs too. He really is a sensitive guy. The bald head, muscles, and tough guy look could lead you to believe he isn't, but believe you me…He Is.
When I called the second time the doctor got on the phone and tried to make me feel better. He said that she was doing great! He knew that this was her first time to be boarded, and he let me know that she was a natural. She wags her little nub every time someone comes to see her, or just walks by and speaks. He said that she went through the surgery great, and that she kind of resembles the Flying Nun right now. I asked him if she is on anything for pain. Yea, giggle if you want, but that was one of my biggest concerns is that she was in pain and I wasn't there. Dr. W was great. He didn't giggle or anything, he just told me that she is doing great and isn't acting like she is in any pain at all. He said she won't hurt unless she shakes her head, and they want that to hurt a little because they don't want her to shake her head for a while. So they are not giving her anything for pain. Just in case you were concerned as well.
We will pick them up on Thursday. We are looking forward to it, Abby is probably looking forward to it, Mordecai is really ready, and Mia is probably enjoying the alone time. :) That's okay, I completely understand!
