Hello everyone well what a Day First of all the reason I am on is that we are staying at the Hotel where my Daughter works as her Heating broke this morning, they are suppose to come out in the Morning to fix it, if not we will be staying here and of course I thing it is great as they have INTERNET yeahhhhh Well I have had a long Day and believe me I can feel it I got up at 5.30am as I was not sleeping well again, showered, dressed, then took Gissi out Came back loaded up the Car as soon as Gissi's Bed bed went in the Car he knew and he ran for it as he does not like the car, so then I was trying to persuade Gissi to come out from under the Bed which took me 15 minutes, picked him up and put him in the car, as I opened the Door to get in the Car Gissi did his normal Trick and shot out of the car, so again I am trying to get him in the car, everytime I said get in the Car, he stood there looked at me and barked, after 10 minutes I got impatient with him and told him in a mad Voice to get in the Car, he came towards me with his head down which of course made me feel awful We set of, normally the trip takes 3 hours, it took over 4 hours, when we arrived I had a coffee we then set of for town after dropping Gissi with my Son, Gissi was so happy to see my Son lol but not happy when Mum left without him, he was very tired to which was not surprising as all the way here again he kept sneezing on me, he was up and down all the way We then had 2 hours in town I was getting slower and slower my Lungs where hurting and my Breathing bad, we then went back to my Sons for an hour After that we went to my Daughters House to get our overnight Stuff and came to the Hotel, she is downstairs with her Work Mates and I am here comfortable in Bed with the Laptop on the INTERNET So Folks I have arrived safe, Gissi is shattered and asleep in his bed and I am here with my Friends I will also be here on Saturday as Mel is going out for the Day with her Friend and Mike is working so I can be here all Day yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhh This is great lol

Hey gabs! Well glad to hear that you made it all the way to your daughter's house pretty much without incident, well of course except for little Gissi not wanting to get into the car and all! But, glad that you arrived safely anyway! And how wonderful that you are staying at the hotel so that you can still visit with us, for now at least! I do hope your daughter's heat is fixed soon! You didn't say what you were doing for Christmas dinner! Is someone cooking or are you all going out for dinner?

Hiya sweetheart! Glad you got there safely, er eventually, Gissi what is he like eh! He even gets up to mischief when I am not around! Did you pack his bra for him LOL! Does that mean you will be spending Christmas at the hotel? All sounds rather grand, does that mean you will be waited on? Glad you managed to get online! I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and get some lovely pressies, look after yourself sweetie and I've put in a good word to Santa for both of you xxx No doubt Gissi will get spoilt rotten when he's up there and I shall look forward in hearing all about it from both of you ;0) xxxxx

Hi Gabs, What an eventful day you and Gissi had! Sounds as if you are smiling and taking it all in stride anyway. It actually sounds kind of fun and a day you will look back on and remember. Having internet sure does help pass the time anyway. Hopefully your daughter's heat will be fixed soon and you'll all have a great holiday!

Hello, Gabs. Glad you arrived safely, though I suspect Gissi may make you feel very guilty for a while! It's great that you have some to yourself to relax a bit ahead of Christmas. Hope the lungs are well rested now. I have Lupus, which affects my lungs, and when I get a flare up it's so painful. How can anything that's basically a sponge hurt so much, I wonder? There's one thing about feeling tired and unwell though - you don't feel guilty about being on the computer when perhaps you should be doing something else. Enjoy it while you can, and have a great time with your family.

Hi there Sandra I am glad to be lying in this bed now believe me I have Emphasimia and COPD and I know I have overdone today, in the Morning we have to do the Food Shopping and then I hope or the rest of the Day nothing as I do need a break or I know I will end up sick again and in much Pain, but I took a Pain Killer tonight so it is easing, I did enjoy my time in town with my Daughter though, so it was worth it lol You take care of yourself there

Wow!! Coco and I certainly envy you big time. coco loves the car. or anything that goes with her in it. i often say she should have been a truckers dog. all you have to do is say lets go bye-bye and shes there. she even leaped into my sons truck seat when he first got it and its so high i have to grab the lift handle over the door to pull into it sounds like a great fun rest you are having.

It does sound like you had quite a day! Wow! I don't blame gissi for not liking car rides. Our family dogs are definitely much different from one another. One enjoys car rides, and the other doesn't. Though I can hardly blame the other one as the last time he went for a car ride I believe was when he needed to go to the vet for a followup after he got bit! He's very skiddish now after that, but the other one is as hyper as ever!
