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 […]


Picking Up My Jaw Off the Floor

Posted by Sue on April 5, 2010 in Celebrations, Deep Thoughts, Health, Life, Self-exploration |

I didn’t (and still don’t) intend on this blog becoming a health and diet journal, but honestly people… I have to tell you this stuff or I’ll explode. Bear with me. The last post? The update? Well, those jeans were a size 12. I analyzed the way they fit and wondered, “can I get into […]


A Little Further On *UPDATED*

Posted by Sue on April 1, 2010 in Climate Controls, Family, Health, Life, Self-exploration |

Here we are, a little further on. Actually has been only half a month. Better, huh? Oh, shaddup all you daily posters… So, now as my Facebook buddies have noted, I am at a plateau. Ugh. I hate those. The walks have gotten to 5 miles a day (I actually went 6 today, but don’t […]


What a Difference a Month Makes

Posted by Sue on March 15, 2010 in Health, Life, Self-exploration |

A month. A whole month. I suck at blogging these days. So much for the “every day” thing. However, I must say I’ve done a few things right since I’ve not been blogging… Around mid-January I decided I’d let my diabetes have free run long enough and I was going to try and reign it […]


Finding My Footing Pt2

Posted by Sue on January 29, 2010 in Deep Thoughts, Family, Life |

I was stunned. Sitting in the backseat, trying to absorb what I’d just been told. My younger daughter had been downstairs and not aware of anything going on upstairs until she heard the screaming through the heat vents… coming upstairs she realized there were pills all over the counter as well as my sharpest knife. […]


Finding My Footing

Posted by Sue on January 23, 2010 in Deep Thoughts, Family, Life |

What a week it has been. Last Saturday I spent the day with my mother and my eldest daughter. It was a relatively good day… as good as a day spent trying to make out what is being said in a noisy, crowded Olive Garden with a mother who isn’t wearing her hearing aids and […]


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

Posted by Sue on January 12, 2010 in Deep Thoughts, Family, Life, Memories, Self-exploration |

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 […]


New Year’s 2010

Posted by Sue on January 1, 2010 in Celebrations, Deep Thoughts, Family, Life, Self-exploration |

I remember being a kid watching “2001 A Space Odyssey” and thinking how far away that was in the future. Now we’ve gone far beyond and are entering a new decade. I look back and the past year and so many things have happened that changed the course of my life. My father dying, my […]



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 […]
