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.

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:
