Mom/dad have lots of errands to get done today/tomorrow. Mom even had to take off work to get everything done. You do realize what that means, right? It means no snuggles during the day time for us anipals. That’s kind of crap I say.
Some of your from Facebook know that mom/dad have a secret they are keeping for the end of the year. They are not telling. I can’t believe that it’s still a secret cause mom/dad they have tendency not to keep their mouths shut. Unlike a certain oinker – I can keep a secret. Looks innocent. But today, they are working on stuff for that secret. All I know is there is LOTS of paperwork that mom has been going through, signing and filling out. She has been a busy girl. She has sent things out, gotten replies, signed sheets and sent them back.
It goes on and on like that and has been for a couple of months. Then mom/dad huddle in front of the laptop oohhing and aawing over things and mumbling to themselves. And now today, they have appointments with the accountant, the lawyer and they have to go to the post office to send more stuff off. What is up with that? What can this giant secret be?
And then tomorrow… Lord help us all friends. Tomorrow we have another delivery coming to the Hotel Thompson. Not surprise deliveries – a washer and dryer. Last weekend, the washing machine decided to give it up and quit. It was tired. I can’t really blame the washing machine. He was 18 years old and had a great service life. The washer was 30 years plus old so mom/dad got both replaced. And yes… we just got a new refrigerator last month. Shaking my head. Mom is about to lose her mommy mind with the appliances here at the Hotel Thompson. Let’s all pray that the delivery goes smoothly. If not, you will hear my southern mommy going ballistic. ❤
My friends – I’ve thought of something so cool. Today, let’s share some helpful tips. Perhaps there is something that you do to make life easier for you that could make life easier for everyone.
For instance, mom has three magnets on the refrigerator. One is a dog, one is a cat and one is an alligator. Yes you read that right. An alligator – rolls piggy eyes. Mommy couldn’t find a piggy magnet. Too funny that the alligator represents me – snorts. Anyway, they are always kept in the same spot on the fridge. When mom feeds the cats, she takes down the cat one. When she feeds the dog, she takes down the dog one. And then when she feeds moi, she takes down the alligator one. That way, just in case she is running late or sleeping in and daddy has to feed us, he knows which one of us have been fed or not fed. So no more double feeding – darns it.
Another thing mom does at work is that she keeps a shot glass on her desk. Snorts and rolls with piggy laughter – not for drinking you funny person. She keeps her staple remover in it. She goes through a LOT of papers and a lot of times has to remove the staples. She removes the staples and then puts them in the shot glass to hold them while she goes through the entire stack of papers. Then all she has to do and toss the contents from the shot glass when she is finished. Something easy that helps her out a bit.
Do ever wonder how daddy is able to do household chores without ‘seeing’? For anyone that has vision problems, these are very helpful tips. Mom taped a toothpick to the washing machine. When daddy does the washing, he feels for the toothpick so he knows how far to turn the dial. Mom also taped a key disc (you know the ones that are colored and are empty in the middle that you put on your keys for coding) to the oven on the “on” button. If daddy wants to cook something in the oven, he feels for the disc and is able to turn the oven on. Mom also put a key disc on the on button of the microwave.
