Watermelon Days Coming to an End

Posted by Sue on August 26, 2008 in Climate Controls, Random Thoughts |

I realize the leaves haven't started turning yet, but around here it is starting to feel like fall. Hubs refuses to let me turn off the a.c. claiming when it is this cold out it isn't running anyway, but in my mind I know it is on and that makes it even chillier in the […]


Back In The Saddle

Posted by Sue on August 25, 2008 in Life, Random Thoughts |

Today is a normal day. Normal is good. Normal is something we take advantage of. Normal is something we ignore because it is… normal. I had a normal weekend. I did some errands on Saturday and even went to my sons' race. It felt good to get out, although a bit tiring. I made up […]


Saying No

Posted by Sue on August 23, 2008 in Life, Rants, Self-exploration |

For over a month I've been torturing myself with a new medicine regime perscribed by my doctor for my diabetes. Yesterday I said "no more". On Monday I doubled up on the injectible medication, going from 5 mg twice a day to 10 mg twice a day. The fun also doubled. I went from nausea […]


What It Is All About

Posted by Sue on August 18, 2008 in Celebrations |

Friday.My house is clean. My garden is weeded (almost entirely). The strawberry shortcakes sit cooling. The strawberries have been cleaned and sliced. The critters are safely ensconced in the bedroom so as not to bother the allergic members of the family. Fast forward a few hours and the kids, their spouses, and the mother-in-law are […]


Suzy Homemaker

Posted by Sue on August 13, 2008 in Random Thoughts, Self-exploration |

I am not, nor have I ever been, a 'suzy homemaker'.  I think it began when my mother tried to beat it into me by making sure I was up at the butt-crack of dawn every saturday for as far back as I can remember to clean. My areas were… everywhere. I have yet to […]


Tired of Bummed Being My Middle Name

Posted by Sue on August 11, 2008 in Random Thoughts |

Don't know about you, but all this grumping around is getting quite tiresome. So, as a result, we are going to take a moment to look at the bright side: The weather has been pretty good. We've been DAMN lucky with wind and hail storms having JUST missed us – I mean a mile from […]


You Can’t Take it With You

Posted by Sue on August 5, 2008 in Deep Thoughts, Life |

Once again life has kicked me in the stomach. This morning we found out a son of one of our landlords, a 46 year old man, had a heart attack and died while vacationing with his family. Forty-six. My gosh that seems so young to me. One more reminder to live life to the fullest […]

There haven't been any blog posts lately because there hasn't been much to blog about. This post is no exception. I am still having bouts of sickness, thanks to the miracles of modern medicine. First they started me on the new injectable medication that, combined with my two oral meds, began almost immediately giving me […]
