Yesterday was a hard day. Seems there have been a few of those lately. Yesterday another beloved pet had to be put to sleep. Cody came into our lives a little over 12 years ago. He was three at the time. It was my youngest daughter's 16th birthday and she'd been asking for a dog […]

Those of you who have been around for awhile know what that means. It is shorthand for “Only Child Syndrome”. I'm not sure it is anything that actually exists in any medical journal, but it certainly exists in me. My husband is the one who first pegged it and gave it the name and it […]


Chasing the Darkness

Posted by Sue on June 23, 2009 in Deep Thoughts, Family, Life |

Unless you are new here, you know my eldest daughter has been struggling for quite some time with agoraphobia, depression, and anxiety. About a year ago she had several ECT treatments and it seemed to take care of the issues – for awhile. Unfortunately, our sweet girl didn't get a lasting peace that she needed […]


One Foot In Front of the Other

Posted by Sue on May 15, 2009 in Deep Thoughts, Random Thoughts, Self-exploration |

That pretty much explains how I'm doing. Just taking it day to day. I'm good. Happy, even. Just can't seem to get real excited about much of anything… at least, not enough to blog it. I feel I'm letting down my blog. I think of several posts a day, but they never seem to make […]

I just heard the sad news that g-buns lost her baby boy. Please take a minute to say a prayer for her and her family. There has been way too much loss in the blogosphere this year.


From Bad to Worse or The No Good Very Bad Day

Posted by Sue on January 8, 2009 in Deep Thoughts, Life |

Monday started out with a little bit of hope. My mom, myself, and my dad's youngest sister and her husband were meeting with a rehab facility to see what they could do for dad. We'd been told they had a couple of "coma" beds where they worked to wake people up. After meeting with them, […]


On Being an Only Child

Posted by Sue on January 3, 2009 in Celebrations, Deep Thoughts, Life, Self-exploration |

The day I dreaded for years has come. The only child syndrome has expressed itself in new and so un-exciting ways. Happy New Year. Since I wrote last my mother has gotten to come home from the hospital (New Year's Day). They put a tube into her lung to let it re-inflate and it has now […]


…and the Other Shoe Drops

Posted by Sue on December 26, 2008 in Deep Thoughts, Life |

I was awakened this morning by a phone call from my mother. "I've fallen." With those words, my day changed drastically. I now have two parents in the hospital. My mom has cracked a rib and punctured her lung, collapsing part of it. No change in Dad. One on ninth floor, one on first… I'm […]

Hi to all five of you who are still coming around…   I just wanted to mention a thing or two then you can get on to what you were doing. Another friend has died. He was 54 years old and had been battling a cancerous tumor for awhile. I guess they thought he was […]


Campaign Promises

Posted by Sue on November 5, 2008 in Deep Thoughts |

Did your candidate win? Congratulations. Now comes the "fresh start"… the "new administration"… the "change". Or does it? I don't care who you voted for or how good a campaign they put on I will guarentee you one thing. Promises will be broken. I don't think candidates do it on purpose. I think they really […]
