We no longer have River in our home. I went in to the shelter to adopt her and, thanks to a massive miscommunication, she was kept by the rescue. Apparently, while I was sitting at home wondering why her photo was not appearing at their website, they were showing her photo to people looking for a pretty, long-haired kitten. We were told we would not be given priority in adopting River, in spite of the fact that she had spent half of her life with us. No amount of begging produced results and over a week has gone by so I think we can safely say she's found a new home. That was the crisis I was dealing with.
We're still grieving her absence. Since I went in expecting to adopt and came home with an empty carrier, I didn't even really get to say "goodbye" and it was very much like a death. We're moving on, but I haven't felt much like writing reviews or anything else. I've read a few children's books and bits and pieces of other books but I'm not even motivated enough to review those, at this point. Change is the only thing helping me get through my days, so I've decided to make this post the end of the blog.
Many thanks to those who have been reading my blog for many years and to the new folks I've just recently gotten to know. I especially appreciate those of you who have taken the time to comment. I miss the days when there was a great deal more interaction and have appreciated every single comment that anyone has taken the time to make.
I can be found at Goodreads as N. Horner (please send a message explaining how you know me, if you want to be Goodreads friends) and on Twitter I am @Bookfoolery. If you've known me for a while and we haven't managed to become Facebook friends, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know how to find you. I have a very common name so it's difficult to look me up on Facebook without knowing my home email, which I don't publish online. I will always end up talking about books somewhere, so feel free to follow along where I go, if you'd like. :)
Love to all,
