Introducing…

Thomas Colson:

My sister, Mary, and her husband Nick are the proud parents of this brand new cutie, born March 25th at 7:50 PM, Colson weighed 7 pounds, 11 ounces and is 21 inches long.

Isn’t he a cutie pie?

Run…

I’m flying about packing, as I leave in a couple hours for Virginia Beach. I’m still sick, going anyway, as it’s not often I get out for a whole weekend. I’ll just be nursing cough syrup more than vodka.

In really wonderful news, my sister, Mary is being induced tomorrow. Today is her due date and the little one is measuring quite big (they’re estimating 9 pounds) so, it’s time for the baby to come out and meet us. Which means, driving halfway across the state, and then back again, to met the baby but, I’m so excited.

Tomorrow also marks 6 years of this journal, and I won’t be here to go back over the past 6 years but, you know what? I’ll be back Monday with baby pictures and stories of silliness and do a past 6 years thing then.

For now, I’m going to crash for a couple hours, then head to the Beach, where it’s just as cold as it is here but, they’ll be an oceanfront view.

Have a great weekend,
Suzy

PS. Any questions you want answered? Just ask in the comments or email me at suzysmith AT gmail dot com and I’ll post on them next week. I promise I’ll tell about the move and everything else, then.

Ick…

I didn’t mean to disappear again, in fact, I’ve had good intentions but, the illness that has descended upon me keeps calling me to my bed, everytime that I open Blogger up.

Right now, I want nothing more than to just crawl back under my blanket and sleep for another 8 hours or so. After, I’ve downed a half a bottle of cough syrup and three hundred Tylenol that is.

In 3 days, this site turns 6. I still haven’t gotten a graphics program downloaded, as dialup is the suck and I’ll be gone for the weekend, so the yearly redesign will be late this year. I’m thinking lighter colors and a pared down design, maybe step the design out of the mid90s. Although, I still don’t know how to do style sheets, we’ll see though.

________________________________________________________

Well, the cough syrup is kicking in and I’m barely able to sit up, so I’m out of here, more later, when I can sit up for longer.

I was “window” shopping online, today, meandering through stores that I would never go into in real life, as if I did, the doors would be locked, alarms would sound and I’d be escorted out of them, in handcuffs, as I am nowhere near posh enough to be in them. As I was wandering I found this
in the rouge color of course.

Oh and it’s on sale for only 263 dollars. Yeah, I’ll get right on that. If I were to spend 263 dollars on a purse, it would have to house me and feed me and clothe me.

I’m not going to lie, if it fell from the sky, I would use it and pet it and call it George but, even if I had that kind of disposal income, I couldn’t buy it. I’m using the same purse that I got for Christmas 2 years ago.

I haven’t even bought one in close to 3 or 4 years and I have a serious purse obsession/lust. I have a boxful of purses in storage. A big box, one that held a crate of paper towels in its previous life. And it is full to the brim of purses yet, I’d be willing to bet that I haven’t spent 300 dollars on all of them.

Yes, I’m cheap, very cheap. I watch for them on sale or clearance. They don’t have to be trendy, as really, I like oddball purses. My favorite purses are always the ones that noone else on the planet would carry. Like the giant black crochet one with fringe and beads hanging off the bottom. From top to bottom it has to be 3 foot long. I adore it.

Yet, I keep going back to that picture and drooling a bit. It really is beautiful, isn’t it? Even if I’d feel guilty for owning it, I can’t help looking at it again and again.

Well, fuck me running. I just went to the front page of my site and noticed something, the posts I’ve been making?

Aren’t there.

4 posts that should be between March 1 and now are gone. They aren’t published, they aren’t saved, and I know I wrote them.

I even begged for someone to help me redesign for the 6th anniversary of this journal (as I have no graphical editing program right now.) The 25th marks 6 years, I’ve been in a writing mood and nothing is there.

I’ll be damned.

Since those posts are gone, well, a couple things I wrote about (and need to rewrite when I’m awake):

My sister, Mary, is due any time now with a little boy. I sit here, waiting for the phone to ring and nothing. Come on, little guy, your aunt (and I’m sure your Mom) are ready to see you.

Wait, Mom? My sister is going to be a Mom. Holy shit. I mean, I know she’s going to be a Mom, the whole belly full of baby shows that but, that really clinches it, writing it out, just makes it more real.

Dart Tournament – Bartended again the first weekend of March. I’m still recovering. We had less people than normal but, still a good crowd, I have pictures, sitting here, but again, no graphical editing program and no one wants a gigantic ass picture like that.

The Move -Settling in continues, my bedroom is getting closer to how I want it. I have most of my pictures of the kids up. As for the babies? I miss them so much my heart just aches. They all need to be here with me and just stay forever.

Other than that, again, begging, if anyone out there would like to help me redesign this site, I would be entirely grateful and even send a mix CD or cookies or just you, know love.

More later (this better post)
