Be Careful What You Wish For

Posted by Sue on October 10, 2008 in Asshats, Random Thoughts |

I've worked at my job for going on nine years. When I started, I was just to be part-time seasonal help and was to assist a guy who had a degree in this field. I'm not putting myself down, here, to be sure I can do my job. However, he occasionally would go off on […]


Camping Day 2 – Property of the Kingdom of God

Posted by Sue on September 24, 2008 in Asshats, Life, Random Thoughts |

Friday Up early, Hubs had made his coffee, watched his morning TV and eaten breakfast. I woke to the sound of the dump trucks hauling rock in for the handicapped pier they were building across the driveway from the RV. Showered, breakfast eaten, we decided to go ride the bike. I was wanting a leather […]


You’ve Been Warned (a rant)

Posted by Sue on September 10, 2008 in Asshats, Rants, Self-exploration |

I thought I'd give you all a warning so you could take cover. When you see a big mushroom cloud rising over the center of Iowa, you'll know that Hubs has informed his mom that we're going camping to a racetrack this weekend…without her. Yeah. OMG. The world is going to end with a bang. […]


And Yet Another Surprise

Posted by Sue on September 3, 2008 in Asshats, Random Thoughts, Wasting Time |

If you've been a long-time reader (at least since March) you may have remembered this dilemma. Well, when I came to work yesterday I was greeted by a dark office. This in itself is not unusual, as people are taking vacations this time of year. However, when I walked in and flipped on the light it seemed […]

Respect covers a lot of territory. Today I'm going to narrow it down to respect for private property. This week has been the RAGBRAI bicycle tour of Iowa. It is an annual bike ride from one side of the state to the other. It has thousands of participants and covers a lot of ground. During […]


God and Politics

Posted by Sue on July 15, 2008 in Asshats, Life, Rants |

Anybody who has come here for any length of time knows I don't do posts very often on religion or politics. Both of those are subjects I have some very definate opinions about and both of them can generate a lot of controversy in the blogosphere. I'm not one to generate controversy. However, a couple […]


Bitter on the Tongue

Posted by Sue on April 29, 2008 in Asshats, Life, Rants |

Dear Ex-Husband, Throughout the years I have tried hard to be understanding of your life, perhaps my guilt leading me to overcompensate for your shortcomings. When we divorced many many years ago, I did everything I could to be pleasant to you, your family, and eventually your new wife. Although I was seething with anger every […]


Whoops! You Did It Again! (a rant)

Posted by Sue on March 26, 2008 in Asshats, Celebrations, Rants |

Three-and-a-half years ago you "forgot" Begger's Night. Now, dear ex-son-in-law, you've stepped in it again. I realize for many people in the world Easter is a religious holiday. Although you aren't very religious – at least, not that I've noticed – you seem to have missed one very important aspect of Easter. Kids. Kids have […]

I saw this story last week on our local news and had a hard time wrapping my brain around it. For those of you who don't want to jump to the link, it is a story out of Muncie, Indiana, about a man who forced his 7-year old daughter to kill the family cat with […]


Level Orange-ish (Not a Family-Friendly Post)

Posted by Sue on March 7, 2008 in Asshats, Rants |

I'm guessing the rating for today's post is not going to be PG-13. Today finds me at bit peevish. Oh, nevermind. I'm not going to beat around the bush… I'm pissed. Big-time. Once again my faith in human nature has taken a hit and I'm frustrated, saddened, and really really pissed off.  I've been robbed. […]
