Checking In

Sally Under a BlanketSo, apparently I’ve tumbled down into my hidey-hole and am finding the climb back out… laborious. Things were going OK. Ronel the Mythmaker nominated me for the Mystery Blogger Award, which was cool and I intended on accepting and even started the post for it. Then I found out my elder cat’s health is declining, resulting in numerous, (and still ongoing) vet visits, and it was like the air was sucked out of me.

Motivation, right now, is seriously eluding me. Even with writing, which is usually my happy place. To say that my heart hasn’t been in writing a blog post would be a serious understatement.

But I figured I’d better write something to let you know I’m still alive and kicking, even if the hidey-hole has seemingly swallowed me. And that I will return to blogging more regularly, you know, once I get more wind in my sails. Or when my batteries have recharged. Or… what other clichés could I use here?

In the meantime, here’s a video of baby goats in pajamas. Because one’s day is seriously improved upon witnessing baby goats in jammies.



  1. Hi Sara – glad all is well … and hope your wonderfully elderly cat will see her way through and you too – very emotional times.

    I’ve just written about Fainting Goats – kind of co-incidental you’ve posted the pajama ones!

    We’ll see you when you’re ready … cheers Hilary

      Thanks, Hilary, I hope so too. Though, it really is just a matter of time. I’ve seen a clip of fainting goats! It’s pretty cute/odd/funny. There must be a goat vibe going around. 😉

  2. Lori Wing

    So sorry about kitty. If only they didn’t steal our hearts so completely.

  3. Michelle Morrison

    It was nice to read another post from you. I’m sorry about your cat. You get attached to your pets and it’s hard when they aren’t doing well. Love the baby goat video. Take a break if you need to, we all need a break now and then.

      Thanks, Michelle, and you’re right in that when pets aren’t well, the world pretty much sucks hehe. She’s been sick before (my cat), but this is the first time it’s felt like there might not be anything we can do for her.

      The goats make my heart fuzzy. 🙂

  4. I certainly can relate. I hope things settle down.

  5. My blogging always go down after doing April’s A-Z. Enjoy your summer!

    • Sara C. Snider

      Yeah, it usually does for me too, though I was trying to resist that trend this year. Oh well. 😉 Thanks, and enjoy your summer as well!

  6. It’s rough when a pet’s health isn’t good. They’re family after all, so of course, it’ll affect you just the same as any human family member. Big hugs to you.

    • Sara C. Snider

      They are family, and yeah, it does feel just as hard as would with any family member. Thank you and hugs back to you. 🙂

  7. Hope your cat is hanging in there and the wind picks up for you soon! I appreciated your kind words on my cover reveal the other day.

  8. I’m sorry to hear about your cat. I hope it and you are doing better.

    • Sara C. Snider

      Thanks, Misha. Hard to tell with Kitty, but I’m finding my rhythm again. 🙂
