A Break

I just wanted to post a quick note to say that I’ll be taking a hiatus from the blogs. Last week, we found out our cat, Elfie, had cancer. Only a few days later, on Sunday morning, she passed away. It’s Thanksgiving here in Canada, but unfortunately at our house we aren’t feeling very festive. Elfie was part of our family for sixteen and a half years, and we'd had her since she was a kitten. My husband and I adopted her and her sister from our local SPCA the first year we were married, so we’re finding this very difficult. I’ve needed a break for quite a while now, and this seems like the appropriate time. I’m not sure how long I’ll be away, but I wish you all luck in your writing endeavors in the meantime.

  2. Poor Elfie. I miss her already. :(
    Take all the time you need away. Hiatuses are necessary from time to time, in my opinion. Thinking about you guys...

  5. So sorry about your sweet kitty, Erin. We lost our dog (who we'd had for the duration of our marriage) back in April, and it was so hard. I totally understand your need for a break... I'll be thinking of you and your family. <3

  13. I'm sorry to hear that. Losing a pet is hard. :( They really are a big part of the family and have so much affection to give. It sounds like she had a long, loving life.

  16. I'm so sorry to hear about Elfie, Erin. My husband and I went through this exact same thing at the beginning of this year with our own kitty (we found out two days before Christmas she had cancer and she passed just 4 days into 2013) -- she was the very first kitty we'd adopted just after we started dating 14 years ago. For us, since we don't have kids of our own, our 4-legged friends have become our kids -- so I can only say that I completely understand what you're going through and I hope it gets better.

    Try to enjoy this time off; I'm looking forward to when you return.
