We're making a list and checking it twice

Yes, we're making a list and checking it twice BUTT it's not to see whose naughty or nice!

Grandpa Bob received the thumbs up from the Surgeon the other day so the list is for all the stuff Mommy needs to do so we can leave for sunny Florida.

She called a family meeting and said all hands and paws on deck. Shape up or ship out. Everybody needs to get their butts in gear and help out around here. There's a lot to be done now. You know what we all did after that meeting? We all went back to sitting down and doing nothing!

Oh now don't worry furends, Mommy is VERY organized and has a list on her computer that she prints out and just goes down the checklist. Stop the mail, start the mail, stop the phone, start the phone, stop the paper, start the paper, etc. Yes, it's a lot of work to leave your house for 6 months at a time butt Mommy is now a professional at it. It all get's done butt not without some HBO words tossed into the mix. Grandpa Bob and Daddy are what YOU would call "procrastinators." (Mommy calls them something else.) They will wait until Wednesday morning before they even start doing their list. It drives Mommy CRAZY! No wonder why she colors her hair.

Our house is in good hands while we're gone. Our Uncle Bobbo the PoPo keeps a tight eye on things here.

He carries a BIG gun, so don't nobody mess with him!

God willing and the creek don't rise, we will be starting our long drive on Thursday. I am NOT looking forward to going in the crate for 2 days.

Oh Muffin, wipe that smirk off your face! I'm miserable in here can't you help me escape?

Mommy said being in the crate is for our own safety. That doesn't mean I have to like it!

In the end, I know it's worth the trip because this is what we have to look forward to.....

Golf cart rides ROCK!

On another happy note, our crashed up van is all fixed now and looks fantastic!

Ok furends, gotta run now. Mommy is going to check her list and I'm going to help her. She let's no moss grow under her feet!

  1. Lady says escaping the cold would be worth any of the hassle of the moving for 6 months. Happy packing and safe travels. Lee and Phod

  2. This is a bitter sweet post for us. We wish we could have gotten together while you were up north this year, but it has been a bit crazy for you all. We hope you get all your lists checked off and have a safe drive down to Florida.

    BTW Walter posted his comment late last night when he was watching late night TV so maybe that is why he was so funny and a bit crude. BOL!


  3. Maybe you can swing by STL to visit us either on the way down or the way back to NY! Snoopy so wants to meet his Muffin! (BTW- he did very well with his trainer yesterday!)

  4. OMD We just LOVE the Picture of your PoPo Uncle and Grandpa Bob. Fine lookin Fellas we say.

    WE don't envy you the Pack and Move thingy... butt OH to be OUTTA the COLD fur the Winter... THAT makes it all worthwhile.

  5. So glad Grandpa Bob got the go ahead. I think the best thing you can do to help your mom is stay out from under her feet. That's what I would do.

  6. Great news that Grandpa Bob has the go ahead and you can go. Nice one, Good luck packing and have a safe trip.
    Have a super Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

  7. Wow, your trip sounds so exciting! It's so cool that you have family PoPo to keep things under control too. That's really important. Wishing you happy packing and a very safe travel adventure!

  14. That is great news, Lily Belle. We will keep our paws crossed that you all have a smooth and safe drive down. Tell Mom and Dad to drive carefully. Can't wait to see all the pretty things when you get there.

  15. Glad to hear you can move on back! Hooray!

  16. Yay! for Grandpa Bob! I wanna go south with you for the winter. Actually, I think all us doxies should go south for the winter!

  17. Make sure your peeps remember to pack up all your toys and treats to take back to Florida. I think your mom should add that to the list just to make sure she dont furget.

  18. Lily Belle & Muffin:

    Thursday to Florida! That's fantastic. You will survive the crate; I know it. Plus, it is so much safer in there.

    My mom says she needs a checklist like your mom's checklist. She has her lists all sorts of places. I told her a checklist is a very good idea.

    Safe travels, my furfriends, and so glad Grandpa is doing well.


  19. Mam said she'd spend two days in a crate to escape nasty ol' winter. Some day...hoprfully soon....when our Dad betires....we will join you in sunny Florida!

    (((hugs)) your friends

  20. OOH! If I knew that you were gonna be coming down to our neck of the woods, I'd beg mommy to take me to visit. ;) Hope you have a safe trip!

    Woofs & huggies, <3

  21. Nice to meet you. Whoa! You go south for the winter like the birds! Say hi to them for me. When we moved, TW did all the stopping and starting of things.

  22. WOW -- you are about to escape the cold!! The crate does not sound like much fun butt from the pictures you showed of where you are going it seems like it will be worth it. Safe travels!!

  23. You're gonna miss the snows? Don't you wanna build a snowman? Ok, mom says she doesn't but we thought for sure she was the only one! Thanks for coming by my bloggy. I see we have a lot of the same furiends! Travel safely!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy and Stanley

  24. I came to say thank you so much for the visit with loving comments when we lost our sweet boy. So appreciated and helped us so much. Hugs Carol x

  25. I hope that you have a safe trip... I'm so glad that Grandpa Bob is healthy to go! You have so much to look forward to!!!!

  26. Oh, the humans and their lists. I suppose when planning such a grand adventure, it is important not to forget anything. Have a safe trip.


  27. Yikes! A crate for two days? Well, I am sure your Mommy will be extra nice to you after :)

  28. Have a safe road trip home! Maybe mom can get you booster chairs or harnesses instead of crates? Love Dolly


Lily Belle & Muffin would love to hear from you!
