I am Sue. I am almost 50. My life is a bit complex and definitely busy. I have an eight-year-old daughter who had a heart transplant as a baby and now has a leaky valve and a pacemaker. But, she goes to public school and is doing well over all. I have a full-time job teaching college and coaching an intercollegiate speech and debate team, but I also teach part-time at another college campus. I am the leader for my DD’s Girl Scout troop. I am an active parent at my DD’s school. I have two dogs, a cat and two guinea pigs. My husband has a long-distance job and a part-time retail position and travels once or twice a month for work. Most of my days, my life feels like this:
A blur of faces and places and lists, with missed opportunities and things forgotten almost every day. So, I’ve decided to try to simplify my life. I want to be able to do the things I want to do (and I do want to do everything I am doing), but also have a clean home and a kept calendar and time to breathe. So, this blog is about that effort. But, I am a tough case. I need simplifying to be simple. I need organizing to be simple. I need things to get done, not be perfect. So, this is going to be simplifying simplified for the Sues out there.
