Thankful Thursday Blog Hop: A Long Weekend Works for Me

thankful thursday blog hop brian 05232019

Hello gang, thanks for coming by to visit our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, I am always thankful to each of you for being here with us. We love to focus on the positive and that means that each and every Thursday we share the things for which we are most thankful. We really do enjoy reading about all of the things you are thankful for too. If youโ€™re new to our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop, thanks for hopping in, we get super excited when new blogger pals join us!

Today we’re all thankful for a long weekend. Oh Thursday? Darn right! I mentioned to you a few weeks ago that the Mom will be retiring on June 15th. Well, she decided she needed more practice of not going to work, so since next Monday is Memorial Day in the U.S. she decided to take a super long weekend. Hooray Mom, she won’t go back to work until next Tuesday. We love that kind of practice.

Ya know what else? The Mom has a 45 minute to one hour commute to work, each way, and we know that she sure won’t miss that drive every day. The Dad had the same commute and he sure doesn’t miss all that driving. I wouldn’t want to be in the car that long anyways and we will sure be happy when the Mom doesn’t have to do it.

So tell me, what are you thankful for today? Tell us in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

    Good for the Mom, taking a long holiday.

    Today i am thankful i found a flash drive i thought i had lost. It has some stuff on it that is very important to me, even if not to anyone else.

  2. meowmeowmans

    That sounds like great practice for you mom, Brian. Long weekends rock! Our dad commutes 1 1/2 hours each way (one hour of it is on the train) — he will be happy when he does not have to do that, someday. MOL.

  3. Little Binky and Granny

    Oh, that driving reminds Granny when she still worked…*mumbles* and was much younger than today..MOL…Every day in a traffic jam too on both sides…๐Ÿ™€ We’re Thankful that your mom can spent more time with you now…soon. Pawkisses for a Happy Long Weekend to all of you๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ˜ฝ๐Ÿ’ž

    One of the reasons my human doesn’t care about retiring is that her commute consists of her walking upstairs! She hates driving in rush hour traffic, so she decided not to!

  5. Mickeys Musings

    A nice long weekend sounds like great practice for her upcoming retirement.
    We think she will adapt to retirement very quickly ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Just think, two people to love you all,all the time!

    How nice your Mom is taking some extra time to enjoy this weekend! My parents are both retired and don’t miss commuting ONE BIT. I’m glad I didn’t have to sit here and wait for them to come home every day too. Have a wonderful time and be THANKFUL for all of the Mom-time and Dad-time you have.

    Hugs, Teddy

    How awesome is that! Our mom commutes two seconds to the home office where she runs her business. We are super thankful she works out of our home. Enjoy the long weekend.

  9. Diane D

    Hugs Cecilia

    WHPA, Brian, that is a LONG commute! You guys get to have mom and dad both this long long weekend! Mom said brother is coming for a visit (and home cooking!!!) this weekend…as it is his birthday so we will all hep him celebrate.

  13. Ellen Pilch

    I can’t imagine such a long commute all those years. When I first got married, I had an hour commute each way and I only lasted a few months to that job. Thanks for hosting. Have a great day! XO

  14. Sandee

    Retirement is wonderful and you’ll both be so happy to be together with your kitties and do what you want to do. It’s most wonderful.

    Thank you for hosting the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Thankful Thursday. My best to your peeps. โ™ฅ

    Brian, I didn’t even know it was a holiday weekend, ’cause things have been so busy around here! I think I’ll spend a lot of time napping with, playing with, and fussing over CATS! I am thankful for them each and every day.

    dood….we R thanx full R weatherz ; while bad; iz knot vizshuz like it iz in de southern statez
    :(… it bee wicked down ther

  17. Sweet Purrfections

    Mom Paula did the same thing before she retired. She had lots of leave days that she had to use or lose, so she basically had 3-day work weeks for about 2 months and still lost 20+ days when she retired.

    1. Canadian Cats

      I can’t see a propet place to comment so I’ll do it here. Who says I’m fussy?It’s best that your mom retires…an hour in a vehicle everyday will eventually drive her crazy. This is not acceptable. Somebody…furry, should ride to work with her and make sure she keeps her sanity. I’m not going to sit with her…..she’s your mom! Our mom has her own problems. Mol

    We are happy for your Mom that she gets a break from the long trip to work. You all have a fun and wonderful long weekend. Hugs and nose kisses

  19. World Of Animals, Inc.

    We are very happy for your mom. The holiday coming up is going to alot of relaxing for everyone and after the 15th of June, you will all have extra cuddle time with mom now too. Thanks for the share. Have a wonderful Thankful Thursday and enjoy your time off.

    Yay for practicing for retirement! I wish we had long weekends here….the Dadz has to work all weekend since he’s in retail, and the farm never gives us a day off (I don’t mind that really though, it’s better than a long drive to work!!).

  21. The Island Cats

    How pawsome that your mom will be retiring soon! Our mom retired a few years ago and she highly recommends it. She drove 45 mins to/from work each day and she doesnโ€™t miss that one bit.

  22. Jeanna

    That is way too far, especially in traffic. Congrats on retirement ma. I’m grateful today landed on a fan day instead of a fireplace day which seems has happened within 24 hours of each other this week. Here’s to nice weather and shorter drives (unless it’s a road trip). Kisses to the kitties.

  23. Angel Foley Monster, Pocket and River Song

    We were very thankful when our mom retired because that meant more time with us.

  24. Cathy Keisha

    Whoa! That’s a long ride to work. I guess we’re spoiled cos “the city” is so close. Even though Pop is thankful he gets to work at home 2-3 times a week so he doesn’t have to commute. If I had you at home, I’d never go to work. Sigh.

  25. Angie

    Congratulations in advance to the Mom on her upcoming retirement! You furbabies will be glad to have her around as much as Dad!

  26. Kitties Blue

    That is terrible to have that commute. We know your mom will be happy to have those days behind her. Our thankful is that Sawyer has been eating. That means he is getting his meds! That makes our humans very happy. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy and Sawyer
