Catching up on Friday

I'm back, every-buddy! Sorry to be absent for so long. Momma's hacking was really gross and it kept me from getting a good night's sleep, and then Wednesday was the horrible event again: I got the pink pill shoved down my throat and hallucinated in the prison box in the car all day. Oh man, what a headache yesterday morning.
But I'm feelin' good today and I'm glad to be back! Chancy and Sunny gave me an award! The You Make My Day Award is presented to bloggers whose blog brings you happiness and inspiration and makes you feel happy about Blogland.
Thanks, buddies! This made my day, and I am glad that we are back in our own 'partment and everything is back to normal (except for Momma's nose, which is still gross).
Yesterday Momma put everything back in order and put away the Christmas decorations and took down the cards we had gotten. I loved looking at all of my holiday cards:

I got one from Kellie the Orange Cat

and the Meezers






and the Furry Kids








and then Momma picked up a ginormous stack of mail yesterday and I was so excited to get even more cards from all of my buddies!!! Adan, Gretchen, and Eric and Flynn sent beautiful Christmas cards, too! I asked Momma why we didn't send out cards and she look embarrassed and said,

"Well, I have a lot of writing and records to get done right before the holidays and I don't really have the money for lots of postage," and I said,

"And because you're lazy?"

and she sighed and said,
"Yes, that's true, too."

So I said, "that's okay, Momma" to make her feel better, and I hope you all understand, too. But thank you all for the beautiful cards you sent! Momma said she's gonna get me a scrapbook to keep my cards and pictures from my buddies.

Congratulations on the award, and on all of the cards! The scrapbook is a great idea. I should get mommy to get me one, too.

It's good to have you back, Jimmy Joe! I hope your mommy quits hacking soon. Mine has been hacking off and on again for the past week, and it does get annoying.

Concats on your award Jimmy Joe...we loved sending you a chrissmousey card and we hopes to do that again next year. We had fun and we think everyone did! Wasn't it great getting something addressed to you? Hope your Momma feels better furry soon.

We're glad you got your Chris Mouse card. Putting them all in a scrap book is a good idea.

Hi! We missed you! Our mom is far too pathetic to send out cards but we got a beauty from Rocky at Artsy Catsy.

Oh Jimmy Joe isn't it grand to be back home again! Making a scrapebook with your cards is what I will do too. I got lots also and that makes me happy....maybe I will make some Valentine's to send back....when is the glue stick mommy?
Love Miss Peach

Congratulations on the award! The scrapbook is a good idea even though I don't have nearly as many cards and presents as you do.

My SS gives me the same excuses, especially now that her scholarship has come to an end (just before Christmas). She has got a part time research assistant job at the uni but that means more time away from me. The pay is super lousy, I might add.

Hey Jimmy Joe! Congrats on your award :) You also got some great cards! We only sent out a few cards .Postage is pricey here and Mom was also lazy and left things until the last minute. I'll try to get her "fixed" by next christmas! Hahahahahaha!!!!
A scrapbook! Thanks for the idea!

That's great that you're back home :-) Those are beautiful Christmas cards you got!

I hope your Momma is all better soon. I'm sure she's not enjoying her gross nose just as much as you are ;-)

Congratulations on your award. The scrapbook sounds like a good idea. We think The Mom should get us one, too. For what it's worth, The Mom just loves to send out cards all the time and Christmas cards are just her thing (she's weird), so you don't need to feel bad about not sending us one.
