Mother’s Day (bonus post)

Posted by Sue on May 14, 2007 in Deep Thoughts, Life |

I just read what my youngest daughter wrote for Mother's Day. It moved me to tears. It is one thing to throw all these horrors at your children during your lifetime and try to then explain to them how you ended up being the person that you are now. They lived through a lot of it […]


Monday Musings

Posted by Sue on May 14, 2007 in Life |

It was interesting to see the comments on my last post. Thanks to Deb for setting me straight – I'm not anti-social after all, I'm avoidant. I'll have to remember that. This is how my weekend went: Friday after work I took food to Hubs in the field, then youngest daughter and I went to […]

Okay, I know…bad play on words. Hubs HATES that movie. Me? I kinda like it… as you'll see. Cindi tagged me. I'm supposed to reveal seven random facts or habits about me. 1.) As I implied in the beginning… I like weird movies. I won't say scarey, as I'm not into the whole "BOO!" jumping […]

The funeral for the young man who died was hard. Very hard. My daughters went with me, as they, too, had known him. We went early as I thought there might be a lot of people. There were. I found my elder daughter's observation interesting. She said she had never noticed so many similarities between […]


Tuesday Tidbits

Posted by Sue on May 8, 2007 in Random Thoughts |

I'm feeling a bit dis-jointed today, so you get scraps. The funeral is this afternoon for my son's friend. I'm going with my daughters, who also knew him and went to school with him. It is going to be a rough afternoon. For those of you playing along, youngest daughter is going to be MORE […]


All Grownup

Posted by Sue on May 7, 2007 in Life |

I'm not sure I like being a grownup. There, I've said it. Sometimes I'm not prepared for the way it can hurt. I want to say right up front, this is not a guilt trip for anyone in my family, so please if you're reading this, don't take it that way. When I was growing […]


Racing Through Time

Posted by Sue on May 4, 2007 in Celebrations |

I didn't get this posted yesterday as I wanted to, so a day late I will announce it was my youngest son's 24th birthday. He is the car racer in the family. With Brad's help, we've gotten a new site set up for his racing over here, but it's still a bit under construction so please […]


Unexpected Heartbreak

Posted by Sue on May 2, 2007 in Life |

This was not the post I was going to write today. This is not a post anyone wants to write. Ever. A good friend of my eldest son passed away yesterday. He had a heart attack. I don't know his exact age, but he was a classmate of my son, so has to be 30 […]

I just read Helen's post and got goosebumps. You have to go find out why…  everyone keep good thoughts for her. She deserves it.
