It seemed to take a long time for the vet to come. Lilly was getting a little tired and anxious...."Is there anyone out there?" She was keeping watch!
Lilly Belle & I at the Vet
The vet was able to put about 5 staples in Lilly's side but could not stitched up the rest due to the age of the cut!!!! We felt about an inch tall!!! She has an open wound now that has to heal on its own. We give her an antibiotic in the am and the pm. She is getting a lot of love! Bryan took some time out to play a game of cards with her!!
On Saturday morning, we also squeezed in attending Katie's last basketball game and visiting with my cousin in Kuwait over the web cam. Whitney invited us over to her house and we got to see and talk with him! Technology is great!!! In this picture you can just barely see Eric on Whitney's computer screen. Then we headed to Pauls Valley to pick up our beef from the meat processor. This was an experience Bryan and I will never forget. We are certified "Backwoods Hicks" now and I think we are proud of it!! Why? We asked for a tour!!! We were both so fascinated to see inside a meat processing place!!!
I have to tell you I did take a picture of the room where they "hang the meat to age" and I wanted so badly to post it on here but I didn't want to gross you out and I want you to still think I'm somewhat sophisticated!
I took this picture and Bryan told me I should call it "The Path of Death."
This is the shoot the bulls and cows walk down to get into the room where they are killed! The man even pulled up this huge knife thing to show us what they use to "bleed" them. I thought to myself..."This man could kill us, put us in the freezer, and no one would know!!!"
There were quite some funny aspects to our experience. The processor was located right next to a cemetery on Bethlehem Road!!! And I thought it odd our beef (at least we hope it is beef) came in boxes marked "shelled pecans."
Bryan and I talked like hicks all the way back to OKC!! We nearly ordered our drinks from Sonic talking with a huge accent, only because that's how the processors were talking!! Hilarious!! This whole experience gave us enough energy to make it through the rest of the day.
On Saturday night, we had a class V-day party at Brooklyn and Jorge's house. Each couple was asked to bring their wedding pictures. It was so fun to see every one's and look at the styles. Several of us had changed! Can you tell which one was ours? :)
We picked two of the most quiet ladies in our class! It was so much fun and we saw a whole different side of them. I'm a little worried they may try to pay Brooklyn and I back since we made up the questions and insisted they play along.
The Whitmores and The Smiths
They were all such good sports. Hilarious!! Do you remember the Newlywed game? Robert Smith did a great job acting like the contestants did.
It was a family Valentines Day party! Even the kidos had a great time!
There was a lot of love in the place!
I hope every one had a great weekend! And, I hope I do not loose some of you due to my new love of a meat processor place!! :)
