So I was feeling good, just be-bopping along with my life and my writing, and then suddenly, the day after my previous post, our oldest kitty died. It happened in a way that was easy and gentle on all of us and…it still sucks. We got her a year after we were married, and she lived to be sixteen. She had a great life right up until the end, and even then she was OK. And…I really, really hate it that she’s not here anymore.
So that’s why I haven’t really had anything to say here for the last little while. I’ve been kind of quiet inside, adjusting to our new way of being around here. Plus, we spent the 4th of July weekend with our 18-month old niece, our 8-month old nephew, and our 3-year old nephew, and only now have I recovered enough to once again be able to form coherent sentences. Just so you know, all of you parents out there, I am in awe of your awesomeness, and how you do that all day, every day. You guys seriously rock.
Words have started coming back to me, so I imagine I’ll have some things to tell you about by and by. But for now, thanks so much for being here no matter what’s going on. You guys are the best.
