I'm Back!

Fortunately (and also unfortunately in some ways), Mom isn't going to be able to finish her dissertayshun by December. It's not her fault... other things happened. She is both frustrated and relieved. But now she can take the writing process a little slower and has agreed to start helping me blog again! I can't make this post too long, but I just wanted to let everyone know I'll be around more. I'm trying to decide if I should allow Harlie to post every once in awhile now that she is calming down a little bit (not much, but a little).

I'll leave you with some pictures. We are VERY happy that it is finally cooling off around here and we can be more snuggly!

Those are some very snuggly pictures, indeed. We're glad you are getting along so nicely.

Sorry about your Mom's dissertation, but sometimes things happen for a reason. We bet it will be even better if it is done at a more leisurely pace and she's not all stressed out about it.

Hi Mattingly!!! Glad you're back. You and Harley look furry snuggly. Sorry that your mommy can't finish her dis-ser-tay-shun, that's rough. But when she gets it done, we is shur it will be furry furry good.

Good for us that you are posting again. Bummer for the mom that she won't finish her dishes, ummm, dis-er-stations.

Oh, mama has been sending good thoughts to your mama about her disertation! She will continue to do so. Remember, my mama used to work in a doctoral program before she got laid off, and she sort of understands what your mama is doing... So we are both gonna send good thoughts for both of you, anyway.

Mama says, you can do it!

Hiya Mattingly,

Skeezix sent us your way. I have to share my blog with my mean sister so it can be done, buddy.

~Jake

I am not mean! Jake is mean to me! And it's NOT his blog. Anyway, Mattingly, I'm pleased to get to know you, and let your sister have a chance to blog some too.
