Ellie’s hamster, Hermie, died in his sleep sometime last night.
We talked a week or so ago about Hermie’s impending demise. We’ve read that the average age is somewhere between 1 1/2 to 2 years (some get to age 3 but not many). Hermie would have been 2 around the end of November, so I think he led a good life
Ellie doesn’t know yet. If I can get her out the door without her noticing, I’ll wait until after school to tell her. She’s going to be a wreck. Heck, I’m crying, and I’m supposed to be a grown-up.
Off to pull myself together before I wake her up.
