Journey with Friends

28 Nov

Welcome my friends to our weekly issue of Journey with Friends.  This is a time that we come together for support, for encouragement, for fellowship – all with one single goal in mind – to live better.  Welcome to our journey to share our goals and our accomplishments and our disappointments and frustrations.

Together we can do this!

Hello friends – how was your holiday?  Did you get enough turkey?  It was probably one of the best holidays we have had in a while here at the Hotel Thompson.  We ate, slept, sat around watching a LOT of football – screamed at the games and cheered for the players, slept some more and chilled.  I was off of work for FIVE entire days and did not think about it one single time.  It was as close to heaven as I could get for sure.  I finally did hear back from my doctor Friday for the additional blood tests.  Everyone was right.  I’m in a major flare up so some of my medicines have been tweaked.  I’m feeling so much better today so YAY for that!  Over the holidays, we also worked on Christmas Cards.  We had a little line going trying to get everything taken care of during this break.  Some of you may have gotten emails/texts from us inquiring about your address.  Please check your emails and those that responded back – thanks!  We will be putting everything in the mail in the next couple of weeks.  We *attempted* to work on some packages to be mailed.  But -cough cough- some anipals (Bacon, Houdini and Hemi) thought everything was for them.  It’s hard to explain that not every toy bought into this house is theirs.  Funny how life works that way, right?  So if you receive a package from us, overlook the added hair.  Just think of that as more love – LOL.

And while you are addressing your Christmas cards this year, we would like to ask for you to do one thing.  Please remember our soldiers.  If you can, please send a card or two to the recovering soldiers.  I’m sure that it would brighten their day.  Thanks my friends – have a great week.  Only FOUR more weeks until Christmas!

    We had a nice quiet 4 days, good food, and an outing. Great times. I managed to not gain weight while having a little of everything. Just restraint.

      That is totally awesome! I showed some restraint as well. Unbelievable but I did – hooray!

    Glad you’re feeling better. Anything brought into this house is fair game too even if it’s not a cat toy. Sweaters need to be broken in (with cat hair). Coats too. Packages need to be sniffed and perhaps have an occasional tooth puncture. Just making sure nothing dangerous is inside.

      Of course! I like the way your anipals think. I thought mine were going to fall over and pass out when they saw some of the gifts we had for other anipals. I think they might have even heard angels singing. LOL

    We had a nice Thanksgiving with too much food. Lots of leftovers. Been a pretty good week.

    Yes, it will take courage to face the scale this week! So much to do, exercise has taken a back seat. Heck–it’s been thrown clear out of the car. Trying to eat sensibly, but Panera’s Holiday Bread is only available for a short time.

      This is so true! I’m making baby steps this week and trying not to beat myself up to badly for sure.


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
