Well, guess what! Mom's home! Yes, she came home a few days early because #1 she missed me so much, and #2 there was a death in the step-family and Mom knew grammy & step-grampy would be busy for the next few days. Auntie L. took great care of me during Mom's absence and I had a lovely time with her as always. I was very chatty with her! I was pretty chatty with Mom too when she came home. She's been giving me lots of love and attention, and now I'm all tired out, so I'm going to take a catnap before bed.
