Another Day, Another Blog

Old: So my dad passed away five years ago. This week (January 12). All this time and I’ve never shed a tear for him. I have his ashes in an urn on my bedroom dresser now. Next to another urn with the ashes of their dog. Mom wanted me to keep them when she moved […]


April… March?

Posted by Sue on April 6, 2011 in Health, Life, Wasting Time |

Uh, yeah… about that. I seem to have gotten distracted in my willingness to blog more. What can I say? Facebook ate my homework? Seems if I have a few extra minutes on the computer I’m lounging about on there, catching up on most of you (those of you who are on there). Then there […]


Post Surgery

Posted by Sue on February 2, 2011 in Health, Random Thoughts |

After recovery I woke in a room, but not the recovery room. I probably slept through all of that. Still in pain, they had me hooked up to a pump of fentynl (sp?) – unfortunately, that is one of the drugs that doesn’t work on me. I have it a try for a few hours, […]

It’s been nearly two weeks since I had my 3-1/2 hour surgery to fuse two more discs in my neck. Right after surgery, I was in considerable pain and was sure of the outcome – if it truly was successful. Looking back, it started on a rather sour note and I was a bit fearful […]

Tomorrow is my surgery. I’m looking forward to it as I hope it is going to take care of the pain I’ve been having for quite some time. I guess my first real hurdle was getting the letter from the insurance company and having them go through all this almost-legal-speak to tell me, finally, near […]


Where Has This Year Gone?

Posted by Sue on December 28, 2010 in Family, Health, Life, Self-exploration |

I am stunned when I look at my blog and realize I have barely written here at all … and not since September?!?!?! That’s unheard of! I used to write daily! I can’t say it is because I’m over on Facebook, updating every day, because I’m not. I don’t know if it is because I […]


Counting Down…

Posted by Sue on September 27, 2010 in Health, Life, Self-exploration |

Pain clinic appointment is on Wednesday afternoon. I’m counting down. First it was days, now it is hours. About ten years ago I had an experience with the Pain Clinic. I’d been having some pain again and was sent there. After taking an MRI the doctor told me they could see no obvious sources of […]


Friday Sorta

Posted by Sue on September 17, 2010 in Health |

Yes, I’m back. Shocked, aren’t you? I told you I’d try to do better! Well, the title is referring to the fact that it is Friday but in my world at this time of the year it doesn’t really mean anything. I’ll be back at work bright and early again tomorrow morning. Still waiting to […]



Posted by Sue on September 13, 2010 in Family, Health, Life, Self-exploration |

I was gently prodded by a blog-friend to update this space. I got to looking and couldn’t believe I’ve not been around here all summer. That’s crazy. I missed so many little (and big) things I should have blogged about, the least of which was my blogiversary in August! I’ll try to give it to […]


The World Keeps Turning

Posted by Sue on May 18, 2010 in Celebrations, Climate Controls, Family, Health, Life |

Despite my lack of blogging, yes, the world does go on. Surprise! Okay, not so much. Let’s see… where do we stand today? My eldest daughter was to move out to her own apartment next Saturday, but possibly now has to wait until later next week as she’s having landlord issues (things not being ready […]
