img_8846Hey friends ❤  How was your week?  We survived another week and I’m proud of that.  We got everything wrapped and mailed out for Christmas – yay!  And this past Saturday we had one last time shopping adventure on a different side of town.  We spent the entire day store hopping, having a blast and laughing.  Isn’t that what the holidays are about?  It was a blast.  Of course, one of the funny things that happened (there’s always more than one with us, right), was that we were shopping on the ‘country’ side of our town.  I guess you could say it was redneck land – LOL.  Well, I’m in a store and I asked the lady at a jewelry counter if they sold nose rings.  OMP!  The look on her face was priceless.  I personally was laughing my butt off at her shock that I had one.  Priceless my friends – priceless.

So this week friends, I leave you with some important information from nephdog Sherlock Bones – If you are going to jingle jangle make sure your jangle jingles.

How was your week?

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. ❤

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!

Hey sweet friends!  How did you do this past week?  I was able to walk more thanks to having a gazillion errands to do during the week.  By the time the week was over, I had done 6.63 miles.  Not bad and I’ll take it.  My hip is still bothering me but not as much so that’s a lot better.  I’m still having to try to get back into the swing of things of making better food choices.  That’s the most difficult thing at this moment.  Well, that and this awful heat.  Tell me it will be over soon please.  I am so not the kind that will complain about the cold.  I can take the cold.  The heat no.

So my friends.  How did you do this past week?

Hello friends.  How did you do last week?  Me?  It looks like I’m still playing catch up from playing catch up.  I did better with my eating and I walked.  Now the downside is I had a giant flare up with my hip last week.  That put me down and I couldn’t do as much as I wanted.  But in the end, I did finish with 4.73 miles for the week.  A little low but at least I moved, right?

So how was your week my friends?
