Of epilepsy, beef and "Girl" vacations?!

Yesterday we went and pick up the 1/2 a beef that we ordered from my uncle. 457 pounds of beef later we have 3 full freezers and at least 60 pounds of ground beef from last years steer that didn't fit. I see A LOT of Hamburger helper in our future we have that much ground beef. Did you know that there is actually a cut of beef called the Arm Roast? I didn't until yesterday.

Yesterday our dog was diagnosed with epilepsy. As of Wednesday morning she had had two seizures in the past three days. Now she's part of a study on a new seizure drug that has been proven effective in Europe and some company is trying to get it FDA approved in the US. Dang dog had a seizure Sunday night right after James Harrison intercepted the ball and ran it back for 100 yards...My mom thought the dog was going to kick the bucket and my dad just thought that she was interupting the game.

I realize that there is still 5 days left to vote on my poll of weather or not I should go on a "Girl" vacation but so far it looks like it's a resounding Hell Yeah! You've got 5 days to get your vote in ladies and gents.


  1. Haha! Your poor doggy.. but yes.. I would have thought she was interrupting the game... j/k!!

  2. That's great you have such a supply of meat. It's nice to not need to worry about.

    I'm sorry about your dog. I hope that the medication works. :)

  3. Awww poor puppy. I hope the drug study helps her. That sure is a lot of beef..damn! I hate hamburger can make a lof of meatballs instead...mmmm

  4. Poor little doggie. I hate it when doggies are sick. I'd rather humans were!

  5. I had a dog that started having seizures, it was because I'd put out too much pesticide in the back yard(ooops). I have something for you on my blog.

  6. I'm so sorry about your dog. That's scary. Hope the medicine works.

  7. Hope the meds work for your dog...nothing worse that seeing our pets go through things like that.
    Our "Sirloin" won't be in the freezer until Aug..(will start graining him in May), luckily, we still have enough left to last us...
    unless we get tons of company!

  8. Oh. I'm sorry about your dog! I had a keishund (sp?) who had epilepsy. Storms and fireworks were the worst for her. I hope the medication helps!

    I placed my vote, and apparently it was the popular vote!


Talk to me goose....
