Okay, this has GOT to stop! Seriously, someone remind this person that some bunnies do NOT like being smothered with icky kisses!
So all of us animals, that would include me and Binks, Ella and Scooter (the two bunnies that live in the "other room") and Boo the Hamster have been "vacationing" for the last three weeks. We went to see our friend Stephanie while Mom and Dad were showing the condo in an attempt to sell it. Well, they sold it and last night we all got to come home. But Mom, sheesh, has been all over me! Cuddling me, kissing me, giving me cheek rubs and talking all goo-goo ga-ga and just totally overdoing it! UGH! She keeps picking me up and burying her face in my fur. When I get away, I give her a nice thump but she just finds it amusing.
We had fun at Steph's house. She has her own bunnies so it was nice to chat with them. Every Sunday Mom and Dad would come over and totally maul us. Kisses and hugs and whatnot. We tried to tell them we were just fine here at Steph's house but both of them were just very sad. I could tell that they really missed us.
Okay, I guess it won't hurt anyone to admit it. I missed them, too. Yes, Mom is a little over-affectionate right now, but deep down, I missed her. I missed her smell, her voice, her pets, our banana time together - I guess I just never realized it until now. Vacationing is fun, but the best part is returning home, to the place you know, the smells you know, the routine you know, and to the people who love you most.
Dorothy was right - there's no place like home.
