Oh man, buddies, what a week!

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!

You can see how relaxed I am on my scratcher-pillow.

But the week got worse. On Tuesday, Momma blind-sided me by pulling out the PTU and taking me to the v-e-t!!!
It was terrible, buddies. First of all, as those of you who had been reading my bloggie for a while know, I get car-sick. So as soon as we get to the horrible office, I got the barfs real bad. It was very embarrassing. Well, the assistant and the doctor lady both kept petting me and talking about how handsome I am and what a grate guy I am, so I'm thinking, "hey, maybe it won't be that bad this time. Maybe they just wanted to visit with me."
But no! After saying over and over how good-lookin' I am, they promptly took me back to their lair and poked me with needles and STOLE BLOODS FROM MY NECK!!!

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.

Easy Like Sunday Morning

Now that we have gotten settled back into our own 'partment and Momma is putting our stuff away, I reminded her that she needs to update my scrapbook with all of the awesome holly-day cards my buddies sent me!

Momma has books for her pictures:

But they are just regular Bean pictures, and I don't think they are very interesting.

So I have my own scrapbook!

I keep all of the grate cards and pictures that you send me in my scrapbook. Thanks, every-buddy!

Wordy Wednesday (I'm finally back)

Hey all my buddies!!! I'm back!

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:

And this weird medieval hospital in Nuremberg, 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:

We had to drive through snow to get home on Sunday, and Momma had to start teaching germy freshmen again yesterday. So even though she was Not Working for a month, she is already stressed. But she promised to try to get my bloggie posts up at least once a week now, and hopefully sometimes twice a week. I'm gonna be busy catching up with you all over the next few days!
That is, between much-needed naps:
