Goofy Daddy

17 Nov

This can’t end well my friends.  

Daddy says he has a light bulb moment and that he now has a bright idea.  Rolling my piggy eyes to the high heavens.  This can’t end well, seriously.  Supposedly he has come up with an idea or shall we say a time schedule on doing things here at the Hotel Thompson for the holidays.  Translation of this means – mom now has a schedule of when to do what and where.  Snorts with piggy laughter.  Now some of the things he has plans, I agree with 100%.  Like shopping for me – HA!

But instead of Black Friday shopping, get this.  Dad wants to stay at home and help mom with the packing and writing of Christmas cards.  What?  Did dad fall on his head?  He *always* likes to go shopping on Black Friday.  But this year he says everything is basically done and he wants to pack up what is to be mailed out to all over the world and mail it on Saturday with Christmas cards.  WOW.  I guess there are miracles after all – snorts with piggy laughter.

So friends – what are your traditions after Thanksgiving?  Do share and tell ❤

    This year Sam and I will be selling our therapy calendars to visitors and staff at the hospital. The proceeds fund our program for the year and we’re almost sold out! Sam will be the pet therapy ambassador; and because I have the thumbs, will drive and make change. As usual, Sam does all the work. Again. 🙂 How terrific your Dad is helping with the cards now that you’ve finished off your howliday shopping. Good for you guys! 😉

      This year the holiday seems different here at the Hotel Thompson. I think mom/dad are really getting into it which is kind of cool. I can’t wait until Thanksgiving/day after just to see what all they have planned. It should be a snort of a great time. And way to go to ya’ll!! What a fabulous cause sweet friends. XOXO – Bacon

    Mom’s cousin goes Black Friday shopping in the middle of the night. Mom meets her for breakfast when she’s finished (and when the sun is up).

    Love and licks,

    You’re all done? That’s not right! You have to start running around like a chicken with it’s head off, fighting for the sales! We don’t do much gifts here but there will be cards. I always put them off until the beginning of December.

      Snorts with piggy laughter. Mom/dad did a marathon in one day in October – they are now finished except for maybe a last minute gift here/there. The day of Thanksgiving and the day after, we will be having Operation Christmas here. It should be a blast. XOXO – Bacon

      Oh yeah. All that is left is the wrapping and going to the post office. Fun times are yet to come. XOXO – Bacon

    that’s a nice idea and I bet together this work is done in zilcjh… and then they both have time to look for some online deals :o) and they can call me if they need help… I’m jobless this year, because the mama has no licence to shop (no, the dad hasn’t furgotten that by now) :o)

      Snorts with puppy laughter. Well step 1 is organizing and wrapping boxes for the postal service and step 2 is writing the cards and then step 3 is the biggie – taking everything to the post office. That will be hilarious in itself and the look on dads face will be priceless for the amount it will cost to mail everything – ha! XOXO – Bacon

    SHE and Aunt Tere sit at the table after Thanksgiving dinner and spread out all the ads from the stores and make a list of where and when and what to shop for on Black Friday…a little wine and a lot of laughter generally are included!

        We still have more to get but just about finished. Too bad we aren’t rich. Shopping would be so much more fun.

        Tell me about it! Mom says if they were rich, they would hand deliver all of their presents. XOXO Bacon
