Saying Goodbye

Posted by Sue on April 20, 2009 in Celebrations, Life |

Closure. Isn't that what they call it when you finally can lay to rest all those feelings you've had since someone dies? I guess that's what we have now. Closure. Yesterday we had a memorial service for my dad. It was low-key. Mainly family and a few close friends of my folks. We just had […]

Yesterday was Easter. Easter, at least in most families, is a holiday. Holiday means holiday food. Every year since I can remember, my mom-in-law has had Easter dinner. Until last year. Last year we never heard from her and the kids all had plans (except one) so we just had last-minute dinner at our house. […]


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, […]


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 […]


Big Brother

Something happened recently to some friends of ours that got me a bit riled up. Of course, I'm going to share it… I want to see if I'm just over-reacting or if you agree with me that the people in this situation went way out of bounds in their "job". We have some friends who […]


Where Has the Time Gone?

Posted by Sue on February 9, 2009 in Celebrations, Life, Random Thoughts |

I swear, it was just Thanksgiving!! This winter has gone fast… and slow. You know what I mean. I feel some days like I'm going a hundred miles an hour, but failing to get anywhere. Mom is doing okay. She's more stable than she was, now that she's off the pain meds, and has put […]


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 […]


Christmas Eve

Posted by Sue on December 24, 2008 in Celebrations, Climate Controls, Life, Uncategorized |

Here's hoping you all have a good Christmas! Sounds like we aren't the only ones who have seen a whole bunch of lousy weather. It is winter, I know, but did it have to be this bad this winter? Guess we don't have much say in it. Dad still has not regained conciousness. They put […]


Turkey Day

Posted by Sue on November 29, 2008 in Celebrations, Life |

Thanksgiving turned out to be very nice. Despite the cat crying at the door at 3 a.m. (we think she's getting so old she's getting cat dementia – she wants in, then she wants back out again, so we're trying to keep her out.) I usually try and put her in the office at night […]

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 […]
