It was a LONG weekend – I mean really LONG

10 Aug

Oh my friends.  Have you ever had one of those weekends where you did so very much that you finally just prayed for Monday to get here STAT because of being tired?  Can you relate?  Mom and dad had one of those weekends.  Mom was already feeling slightly under the weather with her flare up.  But Sunday night, she could barely walk.  But I’m getting ahead of myself.  So this is what those two humans of mine did.

Saturday – They got up for breakfast early and tried a new restaurant.  Yes mom took pictures that I will post soon.  They looked good too.  After breakfast, they had to go to Kaiser to pick up some prescriptions.  Then mom finally got her nails done – which was long needed.  Then they went to Petsmart.  Trust me, all of us anipals here at the Hotel Thompson wanted to go to Petsmart.  But mom/dad said we couldn’t go because they were running all errands this morning before coming home to crash… which mom did 🙂  So after Petsmart and doing what dad said was ‘buying them out’ – rolls piggy eyes, they went to Wally World – Walmart for those that know the place.  Daddy then got a haircut and afterwards, he and mom looked around for some things they needed.  So, you see mom/dad did a LOT of walking all over the place.  Which normally wouldn’t be bad but with mom’s current flare up situation, it wasn’t good.  They left the house this morning around 8AM and didn’t get back home until way after 2PM.  Then they had to unload the Jeep and put everything up.  That’s a lot of work.  With mommy not feeling too well lately, daddy wanted to go someone special for their date night tonight.  So they left the house again at 4PM to go to a restaurant that is about 35 miles away.. not just any restaurant though.  They have crab legs 🙂  Yum…. not that they brought me any back tonight – snorts.

Sunday – They got up for round 2 of shopping and getting errands done.  They got up and went to a local place for breakfast – Cracker Barrel.  Afterwards they had to go to a home improvement store named Lowes.  Mom had some stuff she needed to return and they had pick up light bulbs and air filters for the Hotel Thompson.  Of course, one things leads to another and the next thing they know they have a buggy full of stuff.  But some of the things they found my friends – Oh my piggy heavens.  I’ll share with you on another post on that – my parents are too hilarious!  After dropping off these items at the Hotel Thompson, mom and dad wanted to go to another Wally World location to see if they had something they wanted that the other store didn’t… so off they went again.  Not only did they find some things they were looking for but of course they found some more stuff.  Did I mention that mommy *hates* shopping?  She does.  She can’t stand it.  So she waits and makes lists and then tries to get everything at once.  Silly mom huh?

Afterwards, it was time to do the monthly shopping so off they went to Kroger.  Once there, they had to pick up some other medicines they had filled at their pharmacy.  Then the major shopping for the Hotel Thompson.  And did I mention that mom is a HUGE coupon shopper?  She tells us anipals that she has to be so she can’t keep us accustomed to the way we are living.  I don’t get it – do you?  Mommy keeps up with her grocery list on her iPhone – there is actually an ap for that – snorts.  So when we are out of something, she adds it to the list for the next trip.  She also keeps up with her coupons on her iPhone.  Mom says the one thing about shopping with coupons is organization and that it takes time.  So they were at the grocery store for over two hours!  Daddy told mommy at one time that just because they have room in the Jeep now doesn’t mean she had to fill him to the rim in this one trip – snorts – silly daddy.  But then daddy also said that thank goodness they had Casper the new Jeep because everything they got would NOT have fit into Albert the Smart car.  See all of the stuff in the back of Casper.  You want to take a gander of the cost?  Now mom/dad grocery shop majorly every 2-3 months.  They will go every other week just to get milk and bread.  The total cost of this shopping spree came out to be $178.00 – she then handed the cashier all of her coupons and told him to ‘make it rain savings’.  Snorts – that’s my mommy.  After mom’s coupons and such, it came down to a final price of $127.00 – mom said even the cashier was shocked and amazed at that.  All of this for two somewhat adults, one pooch, two purr things and of course me who daddy says eats like a small child – snorts.

Then they came home to unload everything.  Now mom has a great conclusion to this.  She says, you shop all over the store and put things in your buggy.  Then you have to unload everything at the register to be rung up.  Then you have to load everything in your car to take home.  Then you get home and have to take everything into the house and THEN put everything up.  What a crap play huh?  But daddy knew that mommy wasn’t feeling to good so he parked her in the kitchen and he brought everything into the house for her… aaww – that was sweet.  Mom put everything up and crashed on the couch afterwards.

There she was medicated trying to get some rest while waiting for my Auntie Tina and cousins Savannah and Maverick to make it home.  See they are visiting for a couple of days and was due to arrive at Nanas Sunday night.  Mom finally got the call and her and dad then went to pick them all up for dinner.  They went to a great pizza place and talked, laughed and got caught up.  Afterwards, Auntie Tina and my cousins came to the Hotel Thompson to visit all of us anipals.  That was great fun!  We are all older now and loved the extra attention.  And a certain piggy may or may not have done some cute things for that extra attention – just sayin’ .  When they were done visiting, mom took them and Houdini up to Nana’s for a short visit.  She was only there for a little over 30 minutes and then came home.  After doing the medicines, for the week, she crashed pretty hard.  Who cards that it was only 7PM, right?

So you see, we are all kind of excited that this past weekend is done.  Completed.  Over.  Finished.  All but one little itsy bitsy thing.  What you ask?  Snorts – I’m glad you asked.  Tonight mom/dad are taking Houdini to a new groomer.  This should be fun.  Their appointment is at 6PM, right after mom’s work.  Houdini doesn’t know yet.  I’ll keep you posted on the results my friends.  And one little question, is it the weekend yet?  Snorts

    I need about 5 naps after reading this post. Mom’s RA doctor tells her to remember there’s a difference between exercise and exertion. I think your mom forgot to remember that.

    Love and licks,

      Yes I think you are right. There’s only so many days in the weekend to get everything done sometimes. We keep telling mommy not to make a list – go get that item then. That way everything doesn’t build up to a two day marathon. XOXO – Bacon

    Oh my FLEAS! The human knows how your Mommy feels – she does the same thing when she shops – but also she has severe osteoarthritis – and walking around the grocery store (especially Walmart) – leaves her in severe pain for the next few days – it’s great that your daddy helps your Mommy out. The human says bringing everything in and putting it all away is another hour or two of standing painfully on her feet -then she has to decide on dinner – Oh my kats!

    • PigLove

      08/10/2015 at 2:52 pm

      YES! The floors in the stores are horrendous! Try saying that fast – snorts. Mom’s feet were hurting as well as her right hip that gives her major, MAJOR trouble. Daddy really tries to help her out in so many ways – especially here around the house with things.

      Mom saw the doctor this morning. She is back on steroids for a while. She also got a steroid shot. Maybe that will teach her not to be a superwoman on the weekend. XOXO – Bacon

        The human had had those shots too – they’re Pawful!

        Yes. Poor mom. They make her sleepy and hungry. NOT a good combination in any form from her – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

        Oh my kats – not a good combination fur any human! When we kats get sleepy and hungry, we just eat a bug or two- (or a dozen), and go to sleep – but those idiot humans are too Purroud fur such a simple solution – Flippin morons! *tail FLAP!*

    my dogness – that was a busy weekend – we are thinking your Mom is probably glad it is Monday so she can rest up 🙂

      If she felt better, I think that would be absolutely wonderful. She did have a doctors appointment this morning before the worky place. Hopefully with the treatment there, she will be a bit better by the time she gets home in time to take Houdini to the new groomer. XOXO – Bacon

    Coupon Mom! I love saving with coupons, but wow, she’s a pro. No wonder you get marshmallows. Speedy recovery to her. I’m still coughing from last week’s adventure.

    • PigLove

      08/11/2015 at 10:07 am

      YES that cough is horrendous. I hope you feel better too. Mom has worked hard over the years to get where she is on coupons today. It’s a lot of work but saves us so much money – especially since dad says I eat like a small child – snorts. He’s such a silly man. XOXO – Bacon

    Well done on the savings! Tour Mom is an organized gal, just like myself! We get things done we do! 😀

      Yes you two do Auntie Sharon! Thankfully mom is feeling somewhat better this morning. I think some of the meds are settling in. She has to understand that errands are not marathons… right? XOXO – Bacon

    I hope your mom feels better soon and the evil flare-up disappears to nowhere…. you can shop on sunday too? oh that would be the pawradise for my momma… and the exitus for my dad’s wallet :o)

      Snorts with piggy laughter. Oh yes thankfully you can shop here on Sundays. If not, having only 1 day on the weekend would drive mom mad. There seems to always be so much to do on the weekends. XOXO – Bacon

    I can totally relate. I can’t decide what is harder, work or working on the hoe stuff. This past week or so, it’s been a toss-up. I think I’m stupid tired lately. 😉

      Snorts! I thought my mom was the only one that got stupid tired. I love that! XOXO – Bacon
