Journey with Friends – Week 18

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!


Sunday, April 30, 2017 – So much for taking it easy on Sundays as my day of rest – LOL.  Me and the hub unit decided to take my mom to lunch and then shopping afterwards. Me and my mom walked so much shopping for awesome deals.  You know how you are looking for one thing and then it snowballs into another thing and then another thing.  Rolls eyes – that’s how it went today.  But I think I got a few things for the Hotel Thompson that I have been looking for.  And when we finally settled back at the Hotel Thompson, my mom told me that the Hotel Thompson finally felt “homey” after the renovation from a couple of years ago. It just takes a while to get everything just right, you know.  Miles Moved: 2.61

Monday, May 1, 2017 –  It’s so good to be back to work some weeks just so you can exercise more and move more.  I took a really good walk during my lunch break AND when I got home later this afternoon I took another walk on the treadmill.  I just felt like I had a lot of excess energy to get out of my system.  It felt great moving.  Miles Moved: 3.02

Tuesday, May 2, 2017 – Today marks 4 weeks since the car accident.  The doctor told me it would take 6-8 weeks to recovery.  I feel like I’m almost getting there.  I’m still having the occasional swelling in my sternum which prevents me from bending over.  But other than that, my body seems to be adjusting and getting better.   Miles Moved: 3.40

Wednesday, May 3, 2017 –  I was hurting a bit yesterday but today it’s like I have my second wind.  I’ve been sleeping like the pits the past couple of nights.  But today while walking, I kicked it up a notch and made some good timing.  It feels so good to move.  I just hate that this weather is getting so hot.  That I can’t take – LOL.  AND, I need to get my eating back to the way it was.  I’ve let that go a little for the past couple of weeks but now it’s time to eat clean.  I haven’t done that bad this week but I know there is always room for improvement.  Miles Moved: 3.25

Thursday, May 4, 2017 –    Mother Nature hates me.  LOL – Really she does.  I love walking the path I made for myself around my building complex at work.  But today, Mother Nature said, “Nope.  Not going to happen.”  It has been raining likes cats and dogs.  And usually I would grab my umbrella and get at it – if there is no thunder or lightening.  Well there was none today so I did just that.  Too bad the wind didn’t want to play.  It blew my umbrella inside out!  So, I went to plan B which is making the inside of my office my personal treadmill.  It’s not like the good walk outside but it does in a pinch – and in air conditioning! Miles Moved: 2.50

Friday, May 5, 2017 –   Mother Nature Part 2:  the rain continues.  Sometimes it’s so hard that I’m thinking of building a boat.  But it’s okay.  I continued making treads in the carpet and warehouse here at the office.  I even had a co-worker walk with me for a short time.  I got this!  Miles Moved: 2.51

Saturday, May 6, 2017 –  It’s like it never rained here at all in these parts.  Got up this morning and everything was beautiful, the birds were singing and Mr. Rooster next door was doing his cackling.  But at last, I got up and out and me and the hub walked the stadium down the street from us.  Then we did bunches of errands moving around, lifting groceries, etc.  It really felt great after being holed up the past two days.  Miles Moved: 2.00


Thoughts for the week:  So in texting with my sister over the weekend, she had a perfect month for April.  What exactly does that mean?  It means that she completed all three circles daily on her i-Watch.  That’s a feat in itself.  No down days. She also logged 100 miles in April.  You know this means war, right?  LOL – what’s a little challenge between sisters.  She threw the gauntlet and I caught it firmly.  That’s the way we have always been together.  It’s awesome.  She keeps me in line and May I will rock!  Here is my first week in May – a perfect week!  I so got this Tina – you better watch out for my dust!


This week walked: 19.29

TOTAL 2017 Miles:  198.67

Bashful Home and Weekend Adventures

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?

Hey my friends – today I’m giving you the answers from mom and dad’s new game that I posted about yesterday.  Remember, I showed you a picture to guess but did not give you any clues like how many letters or words the answer was.  My deviled Ham side came out to play – snorts.

My Mommy – PLOL (Piggy Laughing Out Loud)

My human mommy – she kills me!  This is too funny.  This is a TRUE story that really happened to my mommy at the worky place.  She came home and told me and daddy about it last night.  When I tell you that we were all rolling around laughing – OMP (oh my pig!)  It was too rich and too funny.  Only *my* mommy could do something so hilarious.

You see every day when mommy goes to the worky place 80% of her work is typing, typing and more typing.  She types over 100 words per minute.  (I can type 25 hooves per minute – you can tell where I get it from – snorts).  The other 20% of her job is calculating monthly STATs, price/weight conversions and financial matters.

Yesterday she was typing an evaluation and the sentence was suppose to read as follows:

The perpetrator observed the clock.

She finished typing up the paper and turned it in to the designated person.  That’s when they caught it and started snorting at work.  Mommy forgot the L in CLOCK.

Snorts.  Trust me, the men mommy work with will NOT let her forget this.  Just goes to show you – no ones perfect by any means.
