Slumber Party

Yesterday was a looonnnngggg day. We had to get up early because we had to drop Rocky off at the vet for some minor surgery.

He needed to have a tooth removed and some bumps removed.  Pretty basic stuff.

Once home I cleaned the house, we ate lunch, I prepped pizza fixings, and then I had two client meetings.

Since it was also Thursday, I didn’t want to miss out on pizza!  I decided to bake them ahead of time.  This way when we were ready to eat, I could quickly reheat them as opposed to waiting on the pizza stone to heat up, and waiting on the pizza to fully bake.

This worked out really well because I was able to make two pizzas!  Usually when we make pizza I’m so hungry I don’t have time to wait around on two pizzas to bake.  Making the pizza right after lunch, this wasn’t an issue.  So I made His and Hers.


  • Whole Wheat Crust
  • Pizza Sauce
  • Shredded Mozzarella
  • Shredded Carrot
  • Red Onion
  • Ham Cubes (Locals, purchased at Blues Creek)


At 3pm, the vet’s office called to let us know that we would be able to pick Rocky up at 5pm.  My last client meeting was at 4:30 and once that was over we were on our way to get the Rock Monster.

Since he had a bump removed on the bottom of his paw, he has a bit of a limp.  He also can’t go up and down steps or do any jumping.

Scott and I pumped up the air mattress, fixed up Rocky’s bed and slept in the living room last night.  We got up a few times to let Rocky out during the night (IV fluids necessitate a lot of potty breaks!), Scott lifting him up and down the deck stairs.

Today he is resting and much more relaxed.  He’s passed out on the couch (I lifted him up!) and snuggled under a blanket.  We hope the bandage can come off tomorrow and that his wound can start to heal.  The next week or so will probably be much of the same.  Sleeping in the living room and helping make Rocky’s recovery a smooth one.
