Today I was reading a post by Brad and it occurred to me that what he was talking about sounded a lot like what I accuse my hubs of doing… I call it "dumming-down". My hubs is a smart guy. He can even speak well, when he wants to. Many times I get frustrated listening […]


Best Laid Plans

Posted by Sue on September 24, 2009 in Random Thoughts |

Just when I thought I was going to be a better, more regular blogger, fall has hit with a vengeance. Suddenly I'm working full time again and sleep is something I am craving. Whatever happened to my lovely summer naps? *sigh*


The Written Word

Posted by Sue on September 1, 2009 in Deep Thoughts, Random Thoughts, Self-exploration |

I don't know what prompts us to throw ourselves on the tracks and purge all over the blogosphere, but I've seen it so many times from so many of us. I've seen confessions and breakdowns and infidelity and loathing and love. I've seen blog posts from people that I'm not sure they themselves have a […]

I've been pretty scarce around here to the point where I was wondering if I was ever going to come back here myself. The past few posts have been so depressing and gloomy that I wouldn't expect many people to come along and check out what I wrote the next few times because of the […]


Jon and Kate Plus…?

Posted by Sue on June 22, 2009 in Random Thoughts, Rants, Wasting Time |

You'd have to be living under a rock right now not to have heard about the reality show “Jon and Kate Plus 8”. Even if you've never watched it, you have certainly caught news articles or magazine covers in the supermarket check-out line touting the end of their marriage and all the wailing going on […]


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 […]


Still Here

Posted by Sue on March 27, 2009 in Celebrations, Climate Controls, Random Thoughts |

Yeah, I'm still here. Lucky to get a post a week out, but hate to just give up the ghost and say "on hiatus"… or, even worse, "quitting the blog"…   sooooo I am posting just to let you know that neither of those are happening. Happy? Been getting back in the swing of working, […]


A Long Winter

Posted by Sue on March 11, 2009 in Climate Controls, Random Thoughts |

I was under the mis-conception that last winter was a long one. Last winter went on and on into the spring with rain and cold and gloomy gray clouds that sucked the life out of everything and everyone. It took a toll on my eldest daughter, sinking her depression to lows that none of us […]


This ‘n That

Posted by Sue on February 24, 2009 in Life, Random Thoughts |

Not much exiting to report. Mom has had no more phone calls. I'm hoping that was the end of it. I think she'll be more careful from now on. I got a new 'puter. I'm like a little kid. I love me a new 'puter (okay, like a lot…. don't love something that can't love […]


Learning Curve

Posted by Sue on February 20, 2009 in Asshats, Random Thoughts, Wackos |

Mom called me last night and said she was almost afraid to answer the phone. She said a man called her earlier in the evening, irate, and demanded to know who he was speaking to. She gave her sirname, then he said that a man from her number (home, landline) had been calling his cell phone over […]
