Our Mom is Jetting Off

It's that time of the year when our mom heads to Florida to visit gram and gramp.   She's been preparing for days and tomorrow is the big day for her~

 My supplements are all counted out and in their special little container so dad has an easier time of it.  And yesterday morning she made me an entire pound of pasta - all for ME!  And today she'll make another one!  Am I the luckiest girl, or what?!
 It's done perfectly, mom - just the way I like it!
 The ground beef has been browned and the veges are all set and the pasta will be frozen along with the other edibles.  All dad has to do is remember to thaw it out!


She's only leaving us for 6 days but 6 days will seem like an eternity!
Dad has all sorts of fun stuff planned for us!  We'll go to Lenny  and Joe's for fish and chips and the Glenwood for burgers and fries and we'll even have an egg salad  picnic at the Crump barn.
Hopefully the time will go by really fast and mom will be home before we realize she's gone. 

Did you all hear that Bert is having a hat challenge? 
You won't want to miss that!  Check out the details on his blog.


So until next time.............

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

I like the furry hat. Kind of reminds me of Lacie's bottom.

Forget those noms in the freezer. Pizza and donuts for six days! Yahoo!

Hope your mum has a wonderful time away...she'll need a break after all those preparations to go away...BOL!!

We know your dad will take good care of you. And if he forgets to thaw the food, sounds like you have a great back-up plan.

Love that fur hat. Looks like you have a couple of squirrels on your head.

It is always tough when one or both or all of our humans leave but clearly she makes sure you are well taken care of.

mayziegal said...

Whew! I'm glad she gots all your foodables in order before she left. That's the MOST Impawtant thing, for sure. I hope she has a real good time and that your dad spoils you rotten while she's gone to make up for her being gone. Be sure to gives him the sad eyes once in awhile. That helps.

Oh Maggie and Mitch, you are just as precious as you can be. I love you in the hats. I think you have a wonderful mom to take such good care of you ahead of time for when she is gone.

Sam said...

Hi Maggie and Mitch, your mom is welcome up here too, anytime. She can bring your dad and you guys. We'll call Miss Sunshade and her evil mum. You guys can get groomed by E. then we can all go for walkies. Sound like a plan?

The time will pass quickly and then you've got your mother again. Dad takes care of itself. My dad has also done well, so I have missed mama just a little bit.
Lots of love
