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 pickedRead full post »

Who Am I? An Open question.




Dear OS Friends,


Because of a comment I read today, I went and read Robin Sneed’s first ever post.



I’d really love to see her or anyone else with insight write more… Read full post »

Scaring the Animals

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 sheRead full post »

Happy Valentines, My Dearest Suzy


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.

Near, Far,
wherever you are,
I believe that the heart does go on.

Once more, you opened the/

Safe_Bet's Love Notes

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 »

You're Home Now, Sweetie.

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 »

Poetry for Valentines

  My Suzy wrote all of these for me.  She is and always will be my Valentine.


True Love

True love?
My boi in a dress

True love?
My girls holding hands
untainted, big smiles

True love?
My lover’s touch

I have this gritty, old bull dyke as a sponsor.  She is a nasty mean bitch but she tells me what I need to hear without pulling any punches (sometimes literally).  At 2 am this morning I was on the verge of losing it, but I called her and woke her upRead full post »

I don't get this stuff like Suzy did. I am not an internet mavin like she was. I could never figure out why the hell she spent so much time here, either.

I do now.  The warmth and concern that you, a bunch of people who don't really know us,… Read full post »

It will be a week tonight that I rocked my love to sleep for the last time.

The girls think their Poppi is close to losing it and I know they're scared. So am I because they are right. We are just scared little girls that still can't really believe that… Read full post »

I am Amy and I don't know most of you, but I need to tell you that our Suzy is gone. 

When we went to bed last Saturday night, she told me she wasn’t feeling too well.  I held her in my arms and rocked my baby to sleep.  Just beforeRead full post »

Welcome to my Eulogy, Part II

I know you three…  even with your bestest intentions you are going to get bored and your eyes will glaze over.  That’s okay for most of what I’m posting to you, but I HOPE there are a couple of nuggets that will be worth the effort.  So I’ve decided to breakRead full post »

Made of top-grade nonporous stainless steel, polished to a gleaming finish, this gorgeous device is great for doing your kegel exercises, as well as for pure, sensuous fucking. It has a gradual curve with rounded ends.

Welcome to my Eulogy

Welcome to my eulogy. 

Everybody dies sooner or later.  I’m guessing I will be one of the sooner ones.   

I’ve always detested most eulogies.  They never seemed to match what the person REALLY was like and how they TRULY thought.  I’m going to keeRead full post »

You're #1 In My Book!

First a brief poetic intermission:

If your first name rhymes with pig this is for you.

If you last name rhymes with "Failing" this is for you.

If you doesn't have a Grandma, but instead just has a Nana,

You got it...  this is for you!

A Poem for the Pope!



This Poet's Creed

Me and God had a little chat. It was cool,
but we’re both pissed at all the religions of this world

Religions where -
Dancing is a sin, but calling children abominations isn’t.

Yup.  I'm kind of slow, I guess.  It took me till now to process my thoughts regarding the latest betrayal by the Democratic party.
