Enough is Enough

Remember when I mentioned the tornado hitting Parkersburg? Well, turns out one of the i-net's favorite bloggers is from there. Miss Britt. http://miss-britt.com (my linker isn't working). They have determined it was an EF-5, the biggest one they make. It basically took the town and turned it into toothpicks…  To add insult to injury, I'm […]

The party actually ended up being nice. Freezing, but nice. I ended up in the house with the MIL, SIL (from out of state), and visiting friends… and both my boys and their spouses came. We had a nice visit, good food, and minimal contact with either the host or hostess. Even the minimal contact […]


Getting Up on the Wrong Side… Again

Posted by Sue on May 23, 2008 in Rants |

I swore I was going to write a happy post. A joyful homage to the planting being done, Eldest daughter starting to recover some memories, and the new racoon we have coming to visit. I'm sorry, Sizzle… but this is one of those long posts. I just can't do it. There are days that are […]

I wrote an extensive paper once for a school project all about the masks we all wear. This came back to me today as I was in my office and overheard one of the drivers chatting with the other guys. He was all smiles and jokes and Mr. Positive. Not five minutes later I overheard […]

Not to be confused with nookie or any form of hookers. (Watch the spam spike now!) I'm playing hooky this afternoon and you can't stop me. The weather is beautiful (finally!). I'm taking eldesst daughter to lunch, then to get some flowers for her window boxes, and helping her plant them. Yes, I worked in […]


Two Steps Forward, One Back

Posted by Sue on May 15, 2008 in Climate Controls, Life, Wasting Time |

Hubs got back to planting yesterday afternoon. YAY! The forecast is for a week of dry, sunny weather. YAY! If it really stays true, he may actually get done planting. YAY! Eldest daughter finished her treatments yesterday. YAY! She's started back on a medication regime and will gradually build up to the dosages she will […]


On My Soapbox (Again)

Posted by Sue on May 13, 2008 in Life, Random Thoughts, Rants |

Just a quick inventory of what has happened in the past two days in our (farming) world: There is another chance of rain today, tonight and tomorrow. With luck, it appears it may just miss us or we'll get a slight amount. We need none. We need some warmth, sunshine, and dryness. The forecast is […]


More Random Thoughts *Updated*

Mother's Day turned out to be wonderful. Thank you, thank you, thank you to my wonderful kids… one in particular busted her butt to make it a good day. All my kids came over about 10 a.m. (allowing me sleeping-in time) and proceeded to make a terrific breakfast of waffles, omlettes, juice, bacon, toast, fresh […]


This is Getting Old

Three inches of rain. Planting comes to a screaching halt. Hubs is grumpy. More rain predicted. Need I say more?


Goodbye, You’ll Be Missed

Posted by Sue on May 6, 2008 in Deep Thoughts, Life |

Friday I got a phone call at work on my cell phone. The caller said, "Hi. This is Mike." That was all it took and my heart fell. A quick background on family dynamics. I am an only child. My biological mom died when I was three and my dad remarried when I was five. […]
