Okay.

What am I supposed to do? I have had a Horrendous Week, and it's going into another weekend of more of the same, so, you all tell me...what do I do? Do I give up on MY OWN BLOG, TOO?! I thought THIS SITE was MY PLAYGROUND, and a place where some people may like to take a passing glance at my cat and kittens.
Especially since I really only reincarnated this blog to help give myself another way of watching my kittens grow. I am emotionally drained right now, and can't decide a thing.

So tell me, what should I do?

I'm sorry Rose. Maybe I should've kept my parenthesis comment to myself! I definately think you should stick it out! I so enjoy your witty entries w/your posts of your beautiful kitties! Things will settle. Take some deep relaxing breaths, have a cup of tea...things will get better!! How's that song go? Momma said there'd be days like this?!

oooh, a seary-us qwest-shun. hmmm...i says put the bitey on efurrybuddy who's stressin you
Cocoa

When something stresses you out, growl. Like this: GRRRRRRRRRRRR! Then have a snack and go watch the fev-vers.
Grr

Am I the only rational one out of the 3 of us? ::sigh:: You said it your self...it's YOUR PLAYGROUND, and you want to WATCH YOUR KITTENS GROW. You're not doing this to please efurryone or to promote world peace. You do what makes YOU happy, and those of us who enjoy it will come here and appreciate it. We vote STAY. And, if it helps, I guess you could growl a lot and bite stuff ::sigh:: My brother and sister are hopeless!

rose, make yourself happy. a blog is a labor of love to fulfill ones own self. i love to read about the little ones and her highness. they always bring a smile to my face. i can't have anymore kittens for awhile so i have to enjoy everyone elses babies. you have such a way with words and a great sense of humor. so i am going to be selfish and tell you to keep the blogs. but do what makes YOU happy.

Rose: I think you should just ignore/delete the comments that are perverted. Don't give this person or persons the pleasure of upsetting you. Just write them off as hopeless & perverted. They don't deserve the attention that they so obviously crave. You know who your true friends are and that we love Rose & the Royals. But if you feel the need to shut down the blog site for a while, I completely understand. Just keep in touch via email!

LOVE YOU!

Cecilia said...

I hope you will continue the blog. I come visit every day, even though I don't always comment. I'd like to see the kids grow up.

Rose dear, I hope you won't shut down the blog. From a selfish point of view, I enjoy your writing, the "kids" are adorable, and HM, The Queen seems to be enjoying them more and more.

On the other hand, if the stress is getting to you, then you HAVE to do what is best for YOU! What ever you decide, we love you and the Royals, so at least post elsewhere so we know you are well and happy.

...or you could just growl and put the bitey on what makes you cross;b!!

Daily extended (by Astrology.com)
There is a wave of critical energy in your life right now, and it could land just about anywhere. If you feel you are the one being criticized, rein in your defensiveness. If you can listen with an open mind and an open heart, you could hear some very helpful things. If you are in a position where you need to criticize or give constructive feedback to someone else, try to be as diplomatic as possible. Utilize your diplomacy skills. Sometimes a candy coating can be healthy. -

brandi said...

Oh, Rose, please don't give up your blog! We read it all the time, and we are entranced with your Royals and your wit and your excellent imaginative blog.

brandi and her mama, Carol.

brandi said...

PS. Did you know you can have blogger post to your email first, so that you have to approve all posts? Then if somebody makes idiot sick comments, you can delete them and not have them on your comments when they are published? If you know the source, don't even read them. Just reject them.

Hang in there.

Carol, brandi's mom

The Royals can't blog without you, and you can't blog without them. I suggest you spend some time with the cats and await feline inspiration. Browse pictures, read other blogs, or watch a movie with the cats. Take two (or three) cats and blog us in the morning. But don't give up!

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Yes, Rose, remember your advice in dealing with, well, any situation: first pick up the nearest cat...!

I appreciate the opportunity to see the tiny Royals grow and learn. Also like the witty writings and photos.

You've gotten some good advice. I really like Grr, Midnight and Cocoa's advice, that is too cute. And Bonnie had a good point, that the Royals can't blog with you...and face it, those kittens were born to blog.

Hope you decide to keep on blogging.

Derby said...

Take your time and think this out. It isn't necessary to post every day. Do it when you can. Take a break now and then.

Also, an option in addition to needing to approve all comments, the blog administrator can delete any comments they don't like. It's your blog you decide what is appropriate.

We have been seeing a few comments from outside the normal cat community that are not always nice. Ignore and go forward, delete and go forward. Don't get caught in a battle.

Rose said...

Dear Derby and Brandi,
What excellent advice! I've asked Our Beloved Tech Support Lady ML how to make these revisions, and I think I'll be taking your advice!

To all of you, my thanks for your kind words, as I will be taking them to heart also.

It has been pointed out to me by a friend of 8 years plus that I don't usually see the whole picture, just the dark shadings...
this is true. I promise on my end to keep things light 'n neutral...(sounds like a diet yogurt...)

Thanks for posting everyone.

caspersmom said...

Rose please don't stop posting cause I really like seeing Queen Emily and watching Brutus and Marigold grow. I don't know what else to say. I want to add to this but can't come up with a good way to put it. Please keep blogging. I'm glad ML will help you in any way, if that means you will stay. She's great.

Rose said...

Hi Monica,
We will continue to blog, as Queen Mum has many photos and stories to share...
everyone, thanks for your support.
I'm feeling better about things now, and I apologise if anyone felt put in the middle...maybe, there never really was a middle?

In any case, Pounce challenged HRH Princess Marigold to reveal 5 things about herself that I allowed to get sidetracked...shame on me! So, tomorrow - yeeesss, tomorrow, She will sit QM down to share with you all 5 quirky, odd, funny or cute things about herself...she's having such a hard time deciding on only 5...young ones!
Thanks again, everyone!

Hip, Hip, Hip, Hooray!!

Ma'am, thank you from all your loyal servants. Our lives would be truly desolate without your witty guidance and the wonderful pictures of HM, The Queen and The Young Royals.

We so look forward to seeing what HRH, The Princess Marigold has for us tomorrow!

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Don't forget -- Rose will be covering the "hoo-ha-ectomy" for Brutus on Thursday!!!!

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Rose, you are a GENIUS!
You did it!
Yea! Rose! Yea! Queen Mum!

PS: I did not help her one iota. Not one.
