Time sneaks up on you like a windshield on a bug. *

It has now been one year. One year since Dad passed away, quietly, while the hospice women cleaned and cared for him. We were at home, at Mom’s, and getting ready to go to see him. Mom was still in bed when I got the call. I was able to tell her, hug her, hold […]

Almost

Posted by Sue on December 4, 2009 in Family, Life, Memories, Self-exploration |

That’s how long it’s been. Almost. Almost a year. Almost a year since my dad fell, hitting his head on the garage floor and sending himself into the long goodnight. The date sticks in my brain as i look at the calender, already full of birthday and christmas and new years and year -end tastks […]

Those Days

Posted by Sue on November 20, 2009 in Asshats, Critters, Family, Life, Memories, Rants, Self-exploration |

Do you ever have one of Those Days. You know. The kind where you wake up and think it is going to be a good day, only to arrive at work to find out that while you were sleeping the world turned and things happened you have no control over, but that somehow you are […]

Dear Writer

Posted by Sue on November 12, 2009 in Deep Thoughts, Life, Memories, Self-exploration |

There are some bloggers out there who are amazing writers. Truly amazing. They can say things that get to me. Deep inside of me. Whether it is reaching down and touching a memory or giving me a giggle, they can get to me. I know it is silly, but when one of those bloggers comments […]

Cody

Posted by Sue on August 8, 2009 in Critters, Deep Thoughts, Memories |

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 […]

Sweet Benny

Posted by Sue on July 27, 2009 in Critters, Life, Memories |

  On February 2008 I wrote the following post after the Westminster  Dog Show. Last weekend we had to put our sweet Benny to sleep. On Friday he didn't seem excited about his food – definately NOT his style – and on Saturday morning it was still there in his bowl and he was lethargic. I took him […]

Father’s Day

Posted by Sue on June 21, 2009 in Celebrations, Life, Memories |

Today is my first Father's Day… without a father. I've been trying to figure out how I feel about that. My dad and I had a rocky relationship. In the beginning I remember my dad being the biggest thing in my life – literally. He was 6'5” tall and one of my first memories is […]

St. Pat’s

Posted by Sue on March 17, 2009 in Celebrations, Memories |

This St. Pat's day is bittersweet.This was my Dad's holiday. My Dad was very proud of his true Irish heritage. Our family is one of the ones that really was from Ireland, not just claimed to be Irish on St. Pat's. To Dad, it was a bigger day than Christmas. When he was still in […]
