I don't mind the form, I know they're necessary, but I wish if she'd already waited 111 days that she would've put it off to January. The holidays are stressful enough without the ghost of a query I'd already CNR-ed.

I sent a message asking if I could withdraw and send her revised materials before the rejection, but unfortunately it doesn’t look like that worked out.
