When I can't sleep, which is getting to be more and more common, I read the stories that Suzy had scattered all over the web. I came across this one tonight and it really kicked me in the guts.
When she wrote it I never dreamed that she would… Read full post »
People's homophobia some times is just so freak'in stupid that you HAVE to laugh. Here's a perfect example:
The "Just Cookies" Bakery, in Indianapolis, Indiana, has refused to make multicolored cupcakes to celebrate "National Coming Out Day".

I'm keeping this post so that I can save all of your comments because they are all so kind and it is comforting to go back over them. I am deleting that "spew" I wrote because, quite honestly,… Read full post »
Do you believe in angels? I do. My Suzy is one, I’m sure.
In spite of her “colorful” language, fiery temper and her rather “snarky” way with words, she may well have always been one.
That’s the only way I can explain how she still looks ou… Read full post »
I made a comment on Dorinda Fox’s blog today and it put me in one of those moods where I just sat and thought about how lucky I was to have had such a wonderful woman in my life.
The comment was in regards to another comment where they mentioned… Read full post »
Daddy, Happy Father’s Day, I guess. I wish I could remember you better, but I was pretty young when you and Mommy died and then there was all that other shit between then and now that kind of blocks it out.
I do remember bits and pieces of you two, like you… Read full post »

I am VERY proud to announce that my Suzy's writing was selected as the winning essay for Our Big Gayborhood's "5th Annual Blogging for LGBT Families".

The best mother in the world wasn’t really mine, but she would never admit that.
She was always there for “Her” girls. She was one of those touchy-feely kind of mothers that showed her love, not just with words, but with her touch.
You know what I… Read full post »
Not that most people around here gives a shit any longer, but you've been gone for a little over two months now. I still can't get you out of my head even a little bit. Somehow I think you planned that didn't you, you little schemer, you. Well/… Read full post »
God I miss her today.
I actually thought that I was doing better. Then this song came on the radio and I just started blubbering. Fuck I miss her.
Until we meet again
And time makes it harder
I wish I could remember
But I keep your memory
You visit me in my sleep

Dear Me at 17,
Yeah, I know… but it will get better. You will meet that girl you always fantasized about. She’ll be exactly like you dreamed. She’ll be funny, smart, sexy and she will love you more than anybody ever did. She will be/… Read full post »
My sister-in-law left about an hour ago. She's as close to family as we have. The girls love it when their "Antee" visits and I think it does them good to be cuddled and fawned over by "family". I try to do the "cuddle/fawn thing", but it must be something… Read full post »
Today, I think I finally realized that Suzy is never going to be with me again.
This morning, I used some of the anger I've been feeling to make myself finally start to clean out her closet. I started with her shoes and didn't make it any farther. I picked… Read full post »

I killed six hay bales today.
This afternoon I realized that I had a tremendous anger in me. I have always been a very self contained person and I found myself getting impatient at the girls and at myself over stupid little shit. That was the anger in me leaking… Read full post »
After my self-absorbed sob-fest yesterday, I promised myself not to cry in front of the kids anymore. I’ll still cry myself to sleep most nights, but from now on, all the kids will see is the strong, confident woman that they both need. They need their Poppi back the way she… Read full post »
Happy Valentine's day, baby.
Every night in my dreams
I see you, I feel you
That is how I know you go on.
Far across the distance
and spaces between us
You have come to show you go on.
wherever you are,
I believe that the heart does go on.
Once more, you opened the/… Read full post »
She got me again, yesterday afternoon.
After Suzy started to have mobility and balance issues, we had made the room off of the kitchen into our bedroom. That way Suzy wouldn't have to deal with the stairs. Yesterday, I decided to move back upstairs to the master bedr… Read full post »
I went and talked to a psychologist this morning. He told me that I would eventually get over her death and then I'd be able to move on. He didn't get it so I won't be going back. I needed to know how to survive without getting over her death. I… Read full post »
