I AM SO EXCITED! A road trip! As of 8:30 this morning, I’m outta here! Before I get carried away, a quick reminder that today is This’n’That Thursday, a blog hop hosted by 2 Brown Dawgs and Ruckus the Eskie. Pop in and tell them Flea sent ya. This hop means I can talk about whatever I’d like today, a little of this and a little of that, so before the road trip, I’d like to talk about the Move Your Mutt-a-Thon that Slim Doggy is putting together for the first week of January.
I’m so happy to be asked to be a sponsor for this virtual canine health and fitness expo! Well, Jones is a sponsor. Slim Doggy is encouraging dog owners everywhere to get their dogs – and themselves – off the couches in January and get moving!
Wait. Does this means that I have to walk my dogs? And myself? It does?? Dang it! I knew there was a catch! Seriously, though, I love, love, love Slim Doggy. They are encouraging, informative, funny. They make me want to be a better person and a better dog mama. I love the nutrition information they put out there about dog foods and treats. And seeing the results they’ve had in their own home with Slim Doggy Jack has been inspirational. So yes, I’ll walk my dogs and myself in January as part of the Move Your Mutt-a-Thon. Expect to hear more as we get closer to the first!
Now, the road trip! I’m going to be meeting more Jones Natural Chews employees this weekend in a festive setting. Yes, I was invited to their annual Christmas party, and Hunny was invited, too. No, we’re not leaving our crew of kids and critters all alone, though the kids can take care of themselves. My mama is coming, bringing sweet Honey, and spending the weekend.
I wanted to be sure all the animals would still be alive when I get home. Especially Jimmy.
Our itinerary? The first night will be spent in St. Louis, near the Arch. After visiting a leather shop in Springfield, MO. The weekend will be in Rockford, IL. And Sunday night is pizza in Iowa WITH A DOG BLOGGER. Have any of you figured out yet who? The hint is Pugs. And Iowa. *squeeeeee*
Now here’s the fun part, and it will probably surprise some of you: Hunny and I will be married 22 years in January and this is our first time away overnight without children. I KNOW!!! It hasn’t been by choice, believe you me. We’ve tried. Something has always prevented our getting away together. Come Hell or high water, we’re leaving town and never coming back!
*ahem* Okay, we’ll be coming back. But I plan to have a nice weekend with Hunny.
Did I say this was This’n’That Thursday and that I could write whatever I pleased? I meant it.
So. Let me get on the road. Much to see and do before nightfall. And I’ll be posting from St. Louis tomorrow morning!
Until I write again …
