Yeah, that was more than a month...

Sorry, buddies. That was three and a half months. Here's why:

Momma hasn't been good at writing up my posts. She got her dissertation done, defended it against her Special Attack Committee of Professors, and got her Ph.D a month ago. She was very stressed and sometimes unhappy, so I didn't have the heart to bug her about my bloggie.

And actually, I haven't seen her for a month now. Coco and I have been at Granny and Poppa's in Michigan, with my cousins Sophie, Sassy, and Cheetah, because Momma went to a conference in Spain and is going to move away from our 'partment next month so she thought we should just stay comfy at Gran & Gramps so we don't have to help pack stuff up and put it on a truck. Momma is pretty sure she is going to come here and stay with us at Granny and Poppa's because she doesn't have a job. She is very, very upset about this, which I don't really get, because living at Granny and Poppa's house is grate:


See how comfy I am? They have a nice sunporch and you can snooze out here all day and watch lots of birdies! The food's okay, too. I've assured Momma I'm getting enough to eat.

So while Momma isn't too good these days, I'm doing just fine, buddies! Sorry if I'm not back again for a while this summer, but it is hard to telecommute when Momma's computer is all the way back in Ithaca and I'm here in MI. Have a grate summer, every-buddy!

Concats to your Momma on her Phd!!! We will keep our paws crossed that she finds a jobbie real soon.

Have a great summer at Gran and Gramps!

Concats to your Mom - tell her to hang in there. Jimmy Joe, we are almost neighbors!
The Mitten State is a great place to live and I bet your grandparents are taking wonderful care of you!

Jimmy Joe, welcome back (even if it is just for the day). Congratulations to your mom. We know you miss her, but she will be back with you soon. We hope that she is able to find a job soon. We've heard that can sometimes be hard because of the lack of money in education right now. We will be purring that everything goes as it should.

First of all, concats to your Momma on getting the PhD. Getting a job is hard. My SS is out of one too. She is just doing the odd tutoring and lab work. Ironically, having the doctorate is making it harder to get some jobs as it means they have to pay more, :sigh:.

Good luck on the move. Enjoy your stay with the grandparents. You love gorgeous, as always.

Tiger Lily said...

Congratulations to your Momma ~ a Ph.D is a huge amount of work! We hope a good job comes along very soon. We want your Momma to be happier and to feel good after all the effort she put into her doctorate.

In the meantime enjoy your time with your Granny and Poppa.
