Piggy Ramblings

17 Jun

  Let’s ramble a bit shall we my friends?  First up let’s talk about birthdays. Mom is a little blue today – in a good way though.  Her baby Houdini turns the big ONE.  Of course mom tells all of us anipals that we are ALL her babies which we know.  And now Chip (Bashful’s son and my grandson) is almost potty trained.  All of the babies are growing up so fast here at the Hotel Thompson.

Also mom has been doing this DIEt thing.  Lord help us all here.  Mom says she is doing things differently this time with her DIEt and she is recording everything that passes her lips in a journal on her iPhone (there’s an app for that – snorts).  She tells daddy every night that you just don’t understand how many calories you are consuming until you start logging them.  It has definitely been an eye opener for mom.  We all tread lightly around her on this DIEt.  Of course, with mom cutting back that means we here area also cutting back.  See how that flows down hill?  This interprets to less Animal Crackers for me and less chips for daddy throughout the day.  But then mommy has to go to the worky place during the week – insert evil snorts.  What she doesn’t know happens here when she is gone is a great thing.

Another happening thing here at the Hotel Thompson is the demise of mom’s laptop several months ago.  Bless her heart – it was a slow death of the Toshiba.  Toshiba was a great one and served years of hard work.  Mom used my laptop for a while but it wasn’t the same.  She complained something about piggy drool.  What?  It is *my* computer – rolls piggy eyes.  She has been using her iPhone and iPad for Facebook and blogging but she complained about the keyboard and something about when she gets on a roll she can’t type as fast as she wants due to the lack of a ‘real’ keyboard.  WOW – she is such a princess, isn’t she?  Snorts

Well yesterday, a package arrived not for me but for mom.  Amazing that they didn’t turn the package away because mom never gets packages.  She opened it up last night.  Of course, all of us anipals were right there in her lap and on the box to help out and see what it was.  Hey, it’s what we do.  She opened up a box and then another box inside of that box.  It almost seemed like Christmas and the anticipation was killing us all.  Then she struck gold – she got herself a new laptop.  I think I heard angels singing but maybe that was just the television.  She oohh and aaww over it while setting it up.  You would have thought she was in heaven and she might have been.  She was deliriously happy.  And you know what – that made us all happy.  Even daddy when she gave him the receipt for the bill – snorts.

Enough ramblings from this oinker.  What’s going on in your part of the world?  Anything funny?  Anything you want to talk about and share?

Oh and one more thing – I sounded like Columbo on that didn’t I?  Snorts – Love that detective.  Mom told daddy last night that she wished he came with a remote control with a mute button.  I’m not sure what that meant.  Do you?  Daddy just laughed and kept on singing and talking.

    Ooooh…that evil DIEt is no fun! I like to snack all day long – but only on healthy stuff, although sometimes I sneak salty chips to my doghouse when dad isn’t watching.
    Otherwise, I’m rolling around in the yard – it’s sunny and the grass is warm, dry, and crunchy!

      Oh yes! One thing that dad has been doing – don’t tell mom – is sharing his nacho chips with us during the day – snorts! They are so piggy delicious. Of course they are low salt and all of us anipals beg for more and MORE. XOXO – Bacon

        Low-salt is very good! I won’t tell about the nacho chips, either…hope you have some tasty avocadoes to eat with them! They are soooooo good…

      Thanks – mom is loving her new cherish. And trust me, you don’t want your mom to know this guy named DIEt. He’s horrible to our moms for sure. XOXO – Bacon

    It must have been Saint Isidore of Seville’s angels singing to praise the new laptop!! LOL. I was laughing with my Doctor yesterday how there is an app now for all prayers! I have a market tomorow plus crochet teaching for University students. Funny how high tech and timeless stuff like handcrafts, art, writing and music and even prayers are all coexisting. Aunties ramblings in response to piggy ramblings. Also tell Mom to walk when her medical problems allow her. Walking is the KEY and every step counts. ❤ ❤ ❤

      Thanks Auntie Sharon!! It is funny how everything is intertwining these days. Mom is trying to walk more when the pain is less. Pain is really bad with her these days so she is trying to manage it. I wish I could take it ALL away from her. XOXO – Bacon

    that’s a brilliant idea to manage a die-t that way… my mom isn’t good with apps or with math, so she eats nothing when the die-t-war breaks out :o) Congrats to the new laptop… maybe Toshiba meets Acer at the pink pony ranch? …it’s the stylish guy with the branding… beacuse of a sizzled PSU :o)

      Snorts – I’m rolling with laughter at the pink pony ranch brother. That is too funny for sure! Mom is loving her new toy which makes us all happy… especially me since now I don’t have to share my laptop with her – snorts. And her iPhone pings when its time to record food. Man that ticks her sometimes but on a good note – it seems to be working. XOXO – Bacon

        how great that it works… sometimes you just need a ping, right? I hear ya for shared laptops… we had battles here for the new thingy of my dad, because the first thing what my momma did, was to add a nasty spyware bug… now she is banned… and there is a no-protest zone around his desk… we only need crime scene tape to protect the new beast from my mommas paws :o)

        Ears up – crime scene tape… snorts – I think mom can help you with that brother. Rolls with piggy laughter. Oh yes. I put my hoof down with mom/dad. My laptop is *my* laptop. No touchy the piggy laptop anymore. XOXO – Bacon
        P.S. We shall see how long that lasts huh?

    Bacon, my daughter recently lost 20+ pounds with that phone app and her husband 30+ so pass along congrats to her for using it-it definitely works! Better to give her a piggy pat on the head and some credit. You should know that happy moms make life so much more enjoyable for the entire family. 🙂 Here’s to a happy Friday.

      You are so right my friend! She has been doing an awesome job. She is recording everything in her app and even told daddy and us last night how good she feels lately. She weighs in tomorrow so hopefully the scale Gods will be listening 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

    MOL Your house is a riot! Glad your mom got her new laptop…I know mom was kinda prickly without the computer when it turned to toast. I don’t know what they mean by that. It didn’t turn to tast…it was still there but was silent. Oh well! Keep your mom on the DIEt . It can be tough…this dieting but she can do it. She will strike upon something she can snack on.

      Snorts! Mom is sticking to her DIEt and has one week down. Last week – are you ready for this – when mom weighed in she dropped FOUR pounds. Can you believe that? It really helps to record everything she is eating. It really does show all of the calories you intake. And mom’s new laptop – WOW! She loves it. XOXO – Bacon
