Thanks for checking in, buddies. We're just taking a break from blogging so Momma can finish her doctoral dissertation. She has to give it to her committee in less than three weeks. She hasn't heard back yet from the university where she interviewed three weeks ago, so she doesn't think she will get that job, either. So Momma is very worried about not only finishing her degree but also getting a job.
So, as you can imagine, Coco and I are very busy keeping Momma from getting too down. I'm sure you understand how time-consuming that is, buddies. Coco and I will give you an update later this month.
Your buddy, Jimmy Joe

This is the description of the LOVE-YA! Award: "These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award."
I'm gonna pass this on to my grate buddies:
1) Wally, Ernie and Zoey over at Island Cats
2) Sunny, Olive Oyl and Rascal of Mommy's Little Fat Boy
3) Princess Isis the Doggie
4) and Luna over at CatSynth
In other news, guess what I saw went I went out with Coco this morning?
Coco and I found lots of fascinating smells in the long-hidden grass, so we had to spend quite a while doing a thorough investigation.

So it started out with me and Coco doin' our usual duties, showing Momma how to relax and be happy. I showed her how to enjoy a sunbeam on Monday:
See, I had the wonderful realization that you can use your scratcher as a pillow, too!
Look at this evidence. I think maybe they are vampires. It was a terrible experience, but I think I got through it pretty bravely.
Coco didn't have a grate time either this week. We got lots of snow on Wednesday so she couldn't take a walk, and instead Momma made her play Beauty Parlor, which Coco hates. She asked me please not to put a picture of her all wet and sad on my bloggie, and I'm a good brother so I said okay.
We are going to spend our weekend recovering from our stressful weeks with lots of naps and treats. I advise you all to do the same, buddies.

Momma has books for her pictures:
But they are just regular Bean pictures, and I don't think they are very interesting.

Whew. We are all finally back in our own 'partment, me and Momma and Coco, after a month at Granny and Poppa's house in Holland, Michigan. Momma kept leaving us there, though. First she went to San Francisco, where she had a business conference and Very Important Interviews. Then she went to Germany, where she traveled with Auntie Julie* and had a Very Important Meeting with her advisor.
(*Auntie Julie isn't really an auntie. We just call her auntie because she's like one).
Coco and I were equally busy. First of all, there was holly-day decorating to snoopervise:
Then there was all of the snoopervising in Granny and Poppa's house while Momma was off seeing things like this castle in Heidelberg, Germany:
Personally, I think it was a stupid thing for Momma to do, abandoning us to go to Germany, even if she did need to have this meeting. For one thing, that meant that Coco and I didn't have anyone to snuggle with at night, because my bratty girl-cat cousins sleep with Granny and Poppa. Plus, it was very cold, and only Very Stupid Beans take vacations in cold Germany in January. Beans like Momma:
