Will You Be My Valenpig?

Roses are red – Violets are blue – My heart has led – My love to you.

Will you be my valenpig?

Today is also an anniversary of sorts for my mom/dad.  Dad actually popped the question to mom years ago by asking her to marry him on Valentine’s Day.  So today has a special place in their hearts.  I think they are actually going out on a date night tonight to celebrate.

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!!  And I have to ask my friends.

Will you be my Valenpig? XOXO – Bacon

P.S.  Let me tell you a little diddy I read on some mythology lore.  According to Greek mythology, humans were born with four arms, four legs and a head with two faces.  Fearing their power, Zeus split and separated them into two parts.  He then condemned the two parts to spend the rest of their lives in search of their other halves.  Knowing this, it makes sense that humans are looking for their other half in love.  I like to think mom/dad found theirs.

Valentine’s Day Aftermath – a Note From My Daddy

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend with Valentine’s Day.  This afternoon I want to talk about great times with the big day of LOVE.  Think over the years – or if it was this past weekend – to your most memorable Valentine’s day.  What happened?  Today is the day to share and tell me about it.

I asked my mom and dad the same question.  They reminisced about all of the happy Valentine’s Days they have had.  There were many, MANY to pick from but mom and dad picked one that really meant a lot to them both.

They said years and years ago in a time way before they were married and they were still dating.  Daddy was working at the hospital on night shift 3pm-11pm.  Mommy was working for the school system 7am-3pm.  So during the week, they pretty much didn’t see each other physically although they did talk to each other a couple of times during the day.  And remember this was way before the cell phone era – snorts.  (I tell you my humans are older than dirt.)

So Valentine’s day fell on a Wednesday this one year and both were working.  They just knew they were not going to see each other at all.  But daddy – he is a romantic at heart that you wouldn’t believe.  He went by mom’s apartment before she went to work and put a GIANT Scooby Doo stuffed animal in the passenger seat of her car and left.  When mom came down to get in her car, (after she almost had a heart attack because she thought someone was sitting in her car) she oohhed and aawwed.  She got in the car and Scooby Doo was holding a giant heart box.  She opened the giant heart box and there was a card from daddy telling her sweet nothings, chocolate and a jewelry box.  She opened the jewelry box and it had one of the most beautiful jade necklaces that she had ever seen.  Of course she cried.  And then cried some more.  And then cried more and went to school wear she wore the beautiful jade necklace all day.

She had called daddy went she got to work and she made plans to see him at his job later that day for when he went to dinner.  So that night rolled around and mom met dad at the hospital.  Dad told mom he was taking her to a fast food restaurant called Arby’s.  Not a place they went to regularly but dad was insistent.  What she didn’t know was that dad had received information about something special Arby’s was doing that night.  That night just for Valentine’s Day, they had brought in a baby grand piano and hired a guy to play and give out roses to the patrons.  Mom cried again and said it was so romantic and thoughtful.

So there you go my friends, that’s ONE of mom and dad’s most memorable Valentine’s Day.  Now is the time for you to share one of yours – go.

UPDATE A NOTE FROM MY DADDY –

Hi everyone – Bacon’s dad here.  We would have loved to have said that this past weekend was the most memorable Valentine’s day for me and my bride.  And in a way, I guess it was.  Bacon’s mom has been fighting this awful cough since December.  The kind of cough that just makes you choke, can’t catch your breathe and she has even passed out from it once.  She went to the hospital in December and they gave her a bunch of medicines and sent her home.

Sunday IMG_1844morning when I got up, she told me she needed to go back to the emergency room. (And being a Sunday, we are very fortunate that the insurance we have has a built in ‘hospital emergency room’ right in the building.)  She was having difficulties in breathing.  We immediately went.  Once there, she got X-rays (we were totally afraid that she had gotten pneumonia) and they came back clear.  She had a breathing treatment and afterwards they put her on a fluid IV and gave her steroids directly in her IV.  They also drew a bunch of blood.  She started feeling a little bit better and didn’t cough for almost 20 minutes.  This was such fantastic news to us after she had been continuously coughing for what seemed like forever.  She got to come home after about 7 hours in the ER being looked at.  She started bruising up last night from the IV’s and where the blood pressure cuff kept coming on so often.  She looks black, blue, yellow and very sore.

Her blood work came back and lot of her numbers were low – iron, potassium, red blood count.  They gave her a bunch of medicines to get filled and start taking which she has.  She still had a really rough night last night sleeping.  Night time is the worse time for her to rest.  We are all taking care of her here at the Hotel Thompson.  I will be helping out Bacon in the next couple of days to get caught up on his blog visits.  So please don’t think we have forgotten about you – we definitely have not.

Oh Boy – It’s Moms Day Out

IMG_1486Oh my friends.  It’s February 14th.  Do you know what that means – besides Valentine’s Day?  It means that today – the sweetest day of the year – mom gets to go to the movies (dad’s treat) and she gets to pick what movie she wants to see.  And here at the Hotel Thompson – we ALL know exactly what that movie is going to be – Fifty Shades of Grey.  Has your human read this book?  Rolls piggy eyes – oh dear piggy heavens.  Help us.  Really help us.

Mom didn’t hope the Grey train until late.  She finally got a special on her phone where she could purchase all four books.  Let me tell you my friends.  That was a bad mistake.  I don’t care where mom went – to the dentist, waiting in line, at a restaurant, even sometimes at work – she would whip that fun out, start reading and fanning herself.

 She has been waiting and waiting for the movie to come out, checking the calendar until the D date.  Of course daddy has been watching her calendar and shaking his head because he knows he has to take her today.

In honor of sweet dad and mom, I thought I would share with you some other Fifty Shades I have found that I personally think would be funny.  What about you?

Spring Fling

We at the Hotel Thompson have been advised that Madi at http://downhomeinnc.blogspot.com/ is hosting a Spring Fling today, March 20, 2014.  It’s all about love in the air today on this first day of Spring.  I got with mom and dad and asked them to tell me the story again about them.  It’s one of my favorite bedtime stories that mom tells me at night when she tucks me into bed.

It all started back in 1988.  Mom went for an interview at a local company to work for all things an answering service – can you believe that?!  There she met this wonderful office manager who hired her on the spot.  Mom started work as a telephone operator and within a few short months, she moved up to the billing department.

Mom became close friends with the office manager.  Who knew that from the beginning of their meeting, the office manager had plans for my mom.  The office manager set her son up (my daddy) with mommy.  They went on their first date September 14, 1988 (which happened to be the day before the office manager’s birthday – cool huh?).

That first date started it all for my mommy and daddy.  And here’s the kicker.  They dated for 16 years before getting married.  Can you believe that?  At times, mom was ready to get married but dad wasn’t.  Then there were times that dad was ready to get married but mom wasn’t.  Then there were times that neither wanted to get married – snorts.

But finally on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2004, dad popped the question to mom.  Mom’s answer was priceless, “What’s the rush?!  Give me another 16 years and I’ll give you the answer.”  Yep, that’s my mommy.  She did accept though.

Then, things turned a really rough curve.  Dad was involved in a car accident in March 2004.  He ended up in ICU at the hospital for almost three months.  It was a most horrible time for mom and dad.  Thankfully, mom knew dads doctors and they allowed mommy to be with daddy a lot during these times.  Daddy almost died three times during these long three months.  But in the end, he turned and started to get better.

So during the last week of his time in ICU when he was feeling better, mom got with the family doctor that was involved in dad’s care.  The doctor and staff at the hospital watched as mommy did the most amazing thing.  She got on her knee in daddy’s room and proposed to daddy – aaww.  She said that she didn’t want to wait any longer, she wanted to marry my daddy as soon as she could.  He accepted.

He came out of the hospital the beginning of July 2004.  This is when he actually moved in with mommy.  His house had too many steps and he needed care.  Mommy took care of him, got him through rehabilitation and doctor’s appointments.  And in the middle of all of this, they put together their wedding.  And it was easy setting a date.  Over the years, daddy’s mom had passed away.  Remember her birthday was September 15, the day before mom and dad’s first date.  So it was set.  September 15, 2004.

Mom got a beautiful dress.  Dad got a handsome tux.  Invitations were sent out to sixty of their closest friends.  Daddy’s dad, an ordained minister, performed the wedding.  And when they were married, they had been dating 16 years.  This year, September 14, 2014 will marked their 10th wedding anniversary or what they like to say – 26 years together.
