Journey with Friends

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 sweet friends.  I won’t start this week about asking how your week was last week.  Last week was one of the weeks that we just want to skip right over.  So much loss in one week – heck let alone so much loss in 2016.  This is definitely been a year of grief.  Which brings us to eating – let’s just skip right over that this week – LOL

This past weekend was another working weekend.  Sunday we did rest which was awesome but the day seemed to go by so fast.  And then you sneeze and there you go – Monday all over again.  Funny how that happens so quickly.  This week though holds hope.  I must finish packing up presents and get them mailed out on Friday… that is if the anipals here at the Hotel Thompson will give me a break.  We *tried*  to work on packages last week.  Certain anipals here think they have to take all of the items for a test drive on their own before giving them to any of their friends.  Funny how that works, right?  So, if you get any presents from the Hotel Thompson, just disregard the stray hair here/there or heaven forbid a small tooth mark on anything – LOL.

So what are your plans this week my friends?  I am trying to be nice to myself, trying to take care of myself and trying to watch the things I eat.  It is the holidays and I’m watching but not watching – does that make sense?  Now come January 1st, it will be full force.  I promise that. ❤

Don Juan’s Powers are Strong


Lord have mercy.  Is it after Christmas yet my friends?  Please tell me it’s soon – really soon – not soon enough for my liking.  You see I can admit it.  Don Juan’s powers are strong here.  That evil little elf on the shelf needs to go back to where he came.  I’m going to need therapy after all of his antics this year.

You see, this morning I went into the front room like I do every day.  I was minding my own business, snorting and wobbling to the kitchen.  I passed through the living room and saw Houdini.  He barked.  I snorted.  You know to say hey to each other.  That’s when I stopped in my piggy tracks.

Houdini was dressed up like an elf.  WTP (What the pig!).  I asked the little guy what happened.  He said he thought he heard chattering last night in bed and this was how he woke up.  Oh dear piggy heavens.  You mean Don Juan sneaked into his bedroom and put this ridiculous outfit on him while he was sleeping?!  Shivers – I may not be able to sleep myself alone now until after the elf goes back into hibernation for the season.

I admit it.  This scares me.  Houdini didn’t know what happened.  Somehow he slept through it all?  How is that?  How can you sleep through being dressed?

I went straight to the phone and called Nana.  I mean hey – Don Juan wants to play hard ball so I’m calling in for back up.  You don’t mess with the Nana.  This is when I squealed, ran to my room and hid under my toddler bed.  Nana said when she woke up this morning, her pooch Tinkerbell was also dressed like an elf!!  Don Juan’s powers are strong.  Shakes piggy head in fear.
