Getting my feet back under me

Looking forward
Before I go any further, I have to take a minute to thank Pup Love for her Facebook post last night about her struggles with writer's block. I felt better just knowing I'm not the only blogger out there who has been having issues getting my act together this month and that we can talk about it, and it's O.K. Thanks, Pup.

May turned out to be really challenging for me. I won't go into details here, as a lot of it has to do with personal, rather than pet, issues and I tend to live believing everyone has plenty of their own troubles to carry around without having to hear mine. I want readers to enjoy the moments they spend on my site and if I can't find my way to writing something interesting, inspiring or humorous I shy away from the keyboard until I can.

Though there will still be some rough patches in the coming days, I think I'm beginning to get my feet back under me. It's been wonderful to read so many of my favorite bloggers like Snoopy, Gus, Cleo, Riley, Nugget, Caren and Cody, Dakota and Hawk during my recent unproductive period. Know that your stories, photos, videos and Facebook comments frequently bring smiles to my face and remind me that cool, funny things happen all the time and that they'll happen tomorrow, too.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

You just have to keep on truckin'!

Yes, that's the ticket. Apparently I was unprepared for the quantity of events, let alone the quality, but there's little to be done except move forward.

Please hang in there! We're purring and praying that things are okay.

Hi Vicky, I sure hope everything is okay. We all know what it's like to go through rough patches and if you ever need/want to share/vent on the blog. We're all here for you!

I hope you're enjoying your weekend - give Darby a tummy rub for me!

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

you just gave me a HUGE smile! I am honored, touched...deeply touched that you mentioned us and that we are one of the blogs that make you smile. To me, hearing something as wonderful as that makes it ALL worthwhile.

Please know that you are NOT alone. OMG I can't begin to tell you the times I have nothing to say, or writer's block....or who knows what else.

Things have been crazy here too...and sometimes it all just gets in the way doesn't it?

My email address is on my blog (on the Cat Chat blog under "Contact"), please know that you can ALWAYS email me if you need an ear! Thanks for touching me so (((((hugs))))) If there is anything I can do, I'm all over it!

Hi Vicky,

So sorry to hear of your struggles, but really happy to hear I've been able to make you smile, that makes me smile (ok, more like it makes me wag), but you get my drift!

To me that's what it's all about - while I wait for the day I can maybe be a therapy Dog I'm loving bringing smiles to people through my blog! Thanks so much for the shout out, very kind :)

Hey Darby, a message for you, go and do something really silly and goofy to make your Mum laugh, then give her a big hug from me - thanks pal :)

Vicky, both I and my Mum are here anytime you need an ear or just a smile,

Wishing you a lovely day,

Your pal Snoopy :)

Thanks, everyone. It helped a little just to get it out there a bit. I truly appreciate your kindness.
