Eric's Day Flashback and an Announcement.

After a lot of thought I have decided to take a blogging break. I enjoy taking lots of photos and making them into mini stories, but lately I have been able to take very few photos of Flynn. The last thing I want for our blog is to become boring with almost the same thing in every post.

Eric's Day posts will still appear as I schedule about 5 or 6 weeks at a time. I am hoping I will be able to get lots of new photos to use while we are gone. I did think about doing the Sunday Selfies as well, but that defeats the object as I really do feel I need a break at the moment.

I don't know how long we will be gone, maybe a month or so but we will be back. I will probably look in and comment now and again.

Flynn continues to do the same as usual, some good days and some bad. He has just had a longer run than usual of bad days but is thankfully picking up again. Any change and I will be sure to let everyone know.
As I said, we will be back so please don't forget us.

The Flashback this week is from May 2010 and is called:

Dad's Trailer.



Eric: Mancats like to check out the farm trailer, especially when they hear noises coming from it.


Flynn: Hmphh! Now you've found me hiding in it, I'm not stopping here.

Eric: Wait for meeee!

We, too, understand. Sometimes we need a break. We will look forward to your return.

Mickey's Musings said...

We enjoyed Eric's post :)
We will miss you but we understand.
You have been blogging a long time.
I often feel the same. I am away from home so long each day, it is hard to get interesting pictures and even harder to tell different stories.

Here's hoping a break will be what you need.
Enjoy your time with dear Flynn :)
Purrs Georgia and Julie,

Enjoy your break. Sending purrs to Flynn and you. Loves you.

Simba said...

We have been posting infrequently for the same reason - can't really come up with something original to say about a cat on the couch! Have a good break and we will be glad to see you again soon.

The Florida Furkids said...

We understand about needing a break. We love seeing Flynn and will miss you and we hope you come back soon. In the meantime, we'll enjoy Eric's flashbacks.
Love,

We look forward to seeing you -and Flynn of course - as and when you can post and feel able: we totally understand and to be honest, quality time spent with your boy is far better than worrying him to get photos. We will miss you and of course will not forget you. Flynn, go out and get mousing, handsome buddy.

Nellie Kowalik said...

Dear Flynn and Mommy,
Wes LOVES your posts, but Mommy and mes knows. We does not post as much as wes used too and with my (Nellie's) health, we are not too sure how much longer we shall keep it up.
Kisses
Nellie

Summer said...

Sometimes you just need to step back for a while - we'll miss you, but we understand! I'm continuing for Flynn to have WAY more good days than bad.

It's always good to see these flashbacks but understand your need to take a break. I know only too well how stressful the good days/bad days cycle can be and send you and Flynn lots of hugs.

We will miss you and send lots and lots of good wishes to Flynn. Concentrate on those good days, Flynn!

Purrs,

Hannah and Lucy said...

At times everyone needs a break and to do other things. We are thinking about you and Flynn and although we will miss you we understand why. Take care.

Kari said...

Flynn could never, ever become boring! He's the love of our lives! He's given us sunshine during our dark times and he never fails to give us a warm feeling when we see his dear face. Don't stay away too long.
We'll miss him terribly. We love him like he was our own.

angelswhisper2011 said...

Allthough we never get bored to see Flynn's lovely pictures, we do understand that you need a break sometimes, especially when everything is so insecure. As the most of us, we know how it feels :( but out of sight doesn't mean out of mind/heart. We are thinking of you and Flynn every day and we dearly will miss you, but we also hope that you will find a little peace during your absence. Healing Pawkisses for Flynn and strenghts for you :) <3 <3 <3

Marg said...

We sure will miss you too. It is never boring hearing about Flynn and the Eric flashbacks are terrific. We will keep on sending lots of purrs too Flynn. You all have a great break. Will be thinking about you.

The Menagerie Mom said...

Flynn, though we love seeing you, you and your mom deserve a break. Everyone needs some rest and relaxation sometimes. We'll certainly miss you, but enjoy your break, and we'll look forward to seeing your adorable face when you come back! Purrs!

katsrus said...

Have a nice break. Will miss your blog. Hugs to Flynn.

Fuzzy Tales said...

We certainly understand the need for a break...our biped seems to have taken a permanent one from our blog.

Lots of hugs and purrs to you, Flynn, and to your mum and dad.

Mark's Mews (Ayla, Iza, and Marley) said...

To evry thing, there is a season. A time to heal, a time to build up. A time to rest.

Take your time to heal and rest and all that...

Love, peace, and comfort to you.

Laila and Minchie said...

We totally understand! We are going through the same thing as there just aren't many new pictures. You take as long as you need. We love the Eric Flashback Fridays and are happy you will still do those. Take care and just know we will never forget about you all.

MeezerMews&FrecklesWoofs said...

Nice Eric Flashbacks:)

We so know how the catretary gets all stressed out about getting posts done too...and truying to come up with the pictures to use, too...

We want to combine our pages with dog-guy's to make the burden a bit less on meowmy...that way we would only be posting once a week instead of two on the same day. (Sunday selfies.)

We try to post other things that we like to share as the need arises, but those are not subject specific, so they are easier.

Taking a break is actually a good thing, then you can relax and enjoy what you do, and eventually return here all refreshed...when you feel ready and not before:)
...and we will all be here patiently waiting...MOL!

Sending lots of purrs and hugs!

MeezerMews&FrecklesWoofs said...

And adding lots more purrs and POTP fur Flynn!

The Cat Guy said...

I hope the bloggie-break is restful and meanwhile, enjoy every moment with Flynn. - purrs

Dragonheart, Merlin, and Devi said...

What a great memory of Eric. We understand needing a break. We will continue to purr hard for Flynn.

Savannah's Paw Tracks said...

Lovely memory of Eric. And I took a break for a month last Summer when we were moving. I also hear you about not being able to get good new photos. My current rental home is dark with few rooms having good natural light. And my girls are indoor only. My photos are few and far between. Have a restful hiatus. warm hugs, Mom L

Melissa, Mudpie and Angel Truffles (Mochas, Mysteries and Meows) said...

Don't be a stranger for too long but we'll be here when you get back!!!

doggiecaperz said...

Everybody needs to take a break - and we will be here should you decide to return!!! In the meantime, we'll keep Flynn in our prayers!!

William said...

We would never forget you! I hope Flynn has many more good days than bad. ❤ to you all.

John Bellen said...

I understand completely - though pictures of Flynn were never boring. I'll be watching for your return.

LP said...

We understand. It's good to take a bit of time off once in a while.We hope Flynn has more good days than bad. Enjoy your time away. We won't forget you! :)

onespoiledcat said...

Never EVER would we be bored hearing an update on our friend Flynn...but also we understand totally - blogging is a lot of work AND my Mom feels the same way about using photos over and over - but I'm not at my "photogenic best" being thin and sleeping all the time either! Just visit when you can - and we will look forward to keeping updated on Flynn - he and I are traveling a similar road............and we must know what it leads...........

Love you all
Sammy and Mom Pam

The Swiss Cats said...

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

I understand since I am going through a big transition right now my photography has fallen way way way back in the scope of things. I still feel it's important to try and do the blog mainly for myself. It is something I've nurtured, but I totally get it. Commenting has been hit or miss for me because of my lack of enthusiasm ... and I hate that. But it is what it is and I try to keep up appearances. MOL Will sure miss seeing Flynn and Jackie believe me it would not be repetitious to see him over and over again doing whatever he enjoys doing. You recharge those batteries and look forward to seeing you when you return.

Marty the Manx said...

We love you all but understand whole heartedly. Mom has had so much personal/family stuff go on, we have had almost no pictures lately and no blogging time. Give Flynn a huge cuddle from all of us and know we all luv you guys!
Marty and the Gang

Caren Gittleman said...

We will sooo miss you but are just an email away...we will be here when you return. It never gets old seeing ANY photos of Flynn, so don't think any different. That being said, I often wish I could take a loooong break, but can't due to obligations. Re-thinking things and at the end of 2016 that much wanted (needed) break might just take place! Will be here whenever you are! Love to all! xoxo catchatwithcarenandcody

Cathy Keisha said...

Like Caren said, I’m gonna miss you sooooo much you don’t know. I wish you would have done the selfie so when I stopped here I could have admired it. I hope you’ll come visit me every now and again. TW keeps talking about a break too but I won’t let her do it.

To say we will miss you is an understatement. But, of course, we understand. We'll be here to visit when you return. Sending lots of prayers and purrs to Flynn. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Debra Taylor said...

I totally understand about needing a break. I don't post as often as a person who is really involved would do - but a person needs to have a life away from the computer. I hope you find some extra joy as you are on your break!
