Do you ever come off of weekend feeling more tired than you did going into the weekend? That’s the way it seemed here this weekend at the Hotel Thompson. Mom/dad were on the constant go – but before I snort about that, let’s talk about my Bashful. He came home last week! Mom came home late from work one night and found a box sitting on her doorstep. She looked at the return address and knew it was Bashful coming back from his visit with Denny and Reilly. She came in telling me that Bashful was home!
We both dug into the box to find our little guy. And not only was Bashful in the box but so was his friend Sweet Pea. They have stayed up late at night and talked so much to the other pet rocks here for nights now. There is no slowing down the rock clan. I think they are silently putting together a party that they are going to talk to mom/dad about later. Can you imagine that party!? I’m kind of looking forward to it… but don’t tell anyone – that’s our secret for now okay.
But also in the box from Denny and Reilly were a couple of gifts that I have just piggy swooned over my friends. One of them was a box of Barnum’s Animal’s crackers – limited edition. Oh my piggy heavens. First of all – I absolutely LOVE animal crackers. They are up there on my top favorite three snackables and these are so cool! I kept telling mommy, “Give it to me – give it to the piggy”. She told me to be nice though and look at the other gift that was in the box. It was wrapped up in paper and mommy had to unwrap it. What was it? What could it be?
Squeals to the high heavens – it’s a mini-me named Elvis! Look at this cute little pig and he’s black – LIKE ME. I couldn’t believe it. He is so adorable! And mommy said his name was on his neck – Elvis. OMP! He is a perfect addition here at the Hotel Thompson. I told mommy to put him on our book shelves in the front yard. He gets to sit right next to our ninja cow – don’t ask – snorts. Isn’t he beautiful?!
Thank you so very much Denny and Reilly for hosting my Bashful, showing him the bestest of times and my gifts – I love them!
So that brings us to this weekend. Busy, busy and more busy. I think it was a race to see how much could mom/dad do in two days. Really I do believe that. They got up Saturday and went to the worky place. Mom really wants to finish up her year end totals for 2015 and she is getting there. Then she can start work on taxes – shaking piggy head. I don’t think I will see mom until this Summer – snorts with piggy laughter. After mom got done working almost a full day, they ate dinner out and went by the pharmacy. By the time they got home, we anipals got some snuggles and hugs and then it was time for bed. Where did Saturday go huh?
And then Sunday was just as rushed. Mom/dad talked to Easy’s parents in France first thing. You should have hear mommy laughing so hard with Easy’s mom. They were having a blast of a good time. Now, I want you to know during this time I was a perfect pig. I slept close to mom snuggled down next to her legs behaving myself. I can not say the same for my little brother Houdini. Houdini does not like to share and this day was no exception. Houdini kept attacking mom’s fingers and hands trying to get her attention. The only time he behaved was when daddy held him. Then Houdini would hear mom and Easy’s mom voice and want to go at mom again. It was hilarious!
After the phone call, mom went to give plasma at the clinic (#14 donation if I say – she committed to 20). Afterwards, mom/dad went for lunch. Once they were nicely full, they went grocery shopping. Snorts – what a perfect time huh? You are so full that you just want to get what you need and leave. But I’m glad to report that mom had almost $30.00 in coupons. Yay huh?
So you see, by the time they did all of this, where did the weekend go? I demand a repeat without any errands or work. What do you think? How was your weekend my friends?
