Update on Renovation 

06 Apr

Just an update my friends on the renovation hell project here at the Hotel Thompson.  Today marks 11 more days until completion.  I say GET IT DONE ALREADY – snorts.  No really, mom/dad worked on decluttering and purging *all* weekend long.  I have to say, those two put some elbow grease into the destruction remodeling. What do they say, “It always looks the worse before it gets better.”  I sincerely hope so.

This weekend they worked on the closet of the known. You know that closet my friends. The one that you don’t dare open in fear of everything falling out on top of you.  It was three hours of “oh look what I found” – snorts.  Among the things that were found were:

2 boxes of clothes that mom brought to the house when she moved in 16 years ago! 😳

2 deep sea fishing rods and reels – Moby Dick you are safe. 

Moms high top Mickey Mouse sneakers from high school. 

Dads stereo equipment. 

Moms pearls that went missing a couple of years back. Don’t ask how they got into the closet. God only knows. 

Mom/dad worked hard on that closet and the rest of the cleaning this weekend. I’m glad to report that after many trips to Goodwill to drop off donations and many bags of trash later, the house is coming together. There was a couple of added things to be done during this renovation and I’ll keep you posted. As it stands right now, the time table still looks good.

      Snorts! Mom worked so hard Saturday she couldn’t move Sunday morning. She had to take a rest. Her and dad cleaned off the entertainment center last night. Tonight is the china cabinet. They are on a row! XOXO – Bacon

    we understand – getting ready to move also has us cleaning, downsizing and generally turning our lives upside down 🙂

      YES! That’s the way mom explained it. She wants to declutter and purge like she is moving tomorrow. No need to keep hoarding (her words – snorts). So far, she is doing good at letting go of some things. I’m sending you hogs and snout kisses. I know *completely* what you are going through as well. XOXO – Bacon

    I hear ya brother…. it’s a mystery how some things land in the closet…
    We found embarrassing Hello Kitty shoes…maybe our mom’s could go out together while wearing Mickey Mouse sneakers and the kitty shoes? and deep sea fishing rods and reels? Think you won the “look what I found-competition” hahahahaha

      Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter. AND mom found her pearls in the closet. Don’t ask how they got in the closet but at last she found them. She thought she had lost them while wearing them. Too funny! XOXO – Bacon

    This is SO exciting Bacon! We can hardly wait for the “befores” and “afters” !! I’m sure you’re REALLY looking forward to the afters………and peace and quiet!

      oh most definitely cousin! Mom says she is almost ashamed to show the before pictures. She has been so sick the past couple of years that she hasn’t been able to do much around the house. These days she takes advantage of her ‘good’ days. This happens to be one of those spells. That’s why it’s a rush to get everything done. XOXO – Bacon

    Mickey Mouse sneakers sound fun and delicious. Too bad they have been imprisoned all this time….

    Love and licks,

      Deal! I’ll be there in what 9 days in a box? Snorts and rolls with laughter. That probably wouldn’t even be worse than this renovation here. The noises. The banging. The taking out of trash and Goodwill trip donations. By this weekend, mom/dad will be painting around everyone working. So much fun. I’ve been hiding out in my bedroom with the other anipals watching my television and blogging. XOXO – Bacon
      P.S. Can you believe that some people are afraid of us pigs? The contractor has some workers that actually are scared of me. Unbelievable. I’m as sweet as a jar of honey… mmm honey.

    Well done all at Hotel Thompson for all the uncluttering!!! It isn’t easy but it makes you feel good when it is finished! 😀

      You know mom says that she feels better having her life more organized. And she has been pretty good about letting things go. It’s just taking advantage of her good days and get things done. Personally, I think she is as ready for it to be done as us anipals for sure. XOXO – Bacon


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
