BLOG HIATUS-Message from Momcat/Linda

I'm going to take a blog hiatus until further notice. I'm currently working two jobs whose hours and commute time use up 16 hours a day. I work 12 days straight and then have two off, then go another 12 days straight. I'm very grateful in these hard times to have a source of income and benefits.

As you can imagine, on my work days all I want to do is sleep when I get home. And on those two days off I'm catching up on errands and housework.  Quilting and other hobbies are temporarily put aside.

My crazy schedule should ease up some towards the end of January and I hope to get back into a balanced life at that time.

Meanwhile, I'll visit your blogs as time allows.

Piwacket, Trouble, Butch, Sundance, Maggie and I truly appreciate all your visits, comments and encouragement. Quilty blogger friends are amazing!!

I (well, Piwacket) started this blog on the advice of friends when my husband moved out. They told me it would give me a voice and a purpose when I felt a bit lost. I'll always be thankful to them because they were right. Seeing the world through Pi's eyes, taking photos, thinking of how to share stories with readers and receiving blessings from many of you on here and in private e-mails helped me transition through one of the toughest periods of my life.

Thank you, thank you.

Enjoy Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and all other days that are important to you. I'll see you again in 2011.

Love and hugs,
Linda/Momcat

Take care of yourself, Linda, and your furry babies. I'll miss your blog and am glad to hear this is only a temporary thing. I'm really glad for you, that blogging has helped you through a dark and difficult time. Writing does that doesn't it. . .I think it's amazing. (xo)
