A Solitary Life*

Posted by Sue on November 20, 2007 in Deep Thoughts, Life, Self-exploration |

As a child I was left to my own devices much of the time. I remember being five years old and playing in the sandbox for hours. At one time I mimic'd my parents' planting flowers and planted 'flowers' (weeds) in my sandbox. I grew a nice crop that year. I spent a lot of […]

Monday Mumblings

Posted by Sue on November 19, 2007 in Random Thoughts |

* In case you missed it… I GOT SLEEP! WHOOOT! Amazing what a few extra hours and a long nap can do for an attitude. * I am actually taking two days off of work to prepare for Thanksgiving. I will clean and cook and clean some more (and hopefully tuck another nap or two […]

Sleep is Not Over-rated

…and that's all I'm sayin'.

Encouraging Realism

Posted by Sue on November 17, 2007 in Random Thoughts |

Do you ever think of something, write it down, then look at it later and wonder what the hell were you thinking? Okay, maybe it's just me. We've talked about the way I think. Just go with it, 'kay? I was having a conversation with Hubs the other day. He's a bit of a cynic […]

When Friday Used to Mean the Weekend Was Coming

Posted by Sue on November 16, 2007 in Random Thoughts |

It is Friday. In some most people's lives this means the weekend is just around the corner. Only a few short hours from now, two whole days of rest and relaxation – or at least some choice in personal activity – will occur. For lots of people Friday means payday. For some people Friday night […]

Special Delivery

Posted by Sue on November 15, 2007 in Celebrations, Random Thoughts |

Today's the day. I've put it off long enough. It isn't that I don't like to do it, I just don't feel I have the time to do it. No one does, not really. Not this time of the year. Yet? There is no other time of the year that it would work as well. […]

Kids – Not the Billygoat Kind pt II

Posted by Sue on November 14, 2007 in Life |

My husband got the pre-packaged family. When he got me, he got two kids – under the age of five. To his credit, he always treated them like his own. To the point where he's gotten very jealous when they had to go to their biological dad's on weekends… or, in more recent times, he […]

Kids – Not the Billygoat Kind

Posted by Sue on November 13, 2007 in Life |

Ellen had a post that I had to put my two cents worth into. (You've probably noticed how much you all influence my thoughts. Remember that. Be careful what you post. You never know who you'll influence!) She was explaining why she didn't have kids. I understand perfectly. As a matter of fact, every time […]

The Man Factor

Posted by Sue on November 12, 2007 in Random Thoughts, Rants |

Andie brought up a point on her blog that I'd like to address. (She's private, so you may not get "in" to her.) She was talking about her experience being hassled in a store by someone trying to get her to sign up for some stuff and she kept saying 'no', but the guy wouldn't listen […]

Good News Bad News

Posted by Sue on November 11, 2007 in Random Thoughts, Technology |

Ah, yes… again we have a quality Na-no-poo-poo blog post. (Why can't I remember the name of that thing? Oh yeah. We talked about that. Nevermind.) It is Sunday, typically your day of rest. Somebody's day of rest. Not mine. In the bad news department: Tech support never contacted me and my computer program is […]
