About Me

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.
