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.
