Stuff and Such

Here's what I'm thinking this week:

** It's been sucky week. On Monday, my 36 year old brother-in-law collapsed while jogging and has been on life support since. The prognosis doesn't look good and my sister-in-law and her four young boys (along with the rest of us) are just waiting now to see if a miracle happens before she has to make that dreadful decision. Why does it take such drastic events to make us realize how precious life is?

** In better news,  the weather this week has been the perfect fall! I'm loving it!

** I finished one of the books I bought last week at the big library event: Swoon at Your Own Risk by Sydney Salter. Very fun. Reminds me a lot of Meg Cabot's books.

** I'm thinking I really need the Prince of Persia soundtrack. Yeah, that's what music I'm thinking of today.

** Oh boy and for my Josh Groban update... watch this video of him interviewing himself about groupies. He's a hoot and so much enjoys making fun of himself. I love it. I think there's more like this coming and I can't wait. Oh, and there's a new music video too.

** I watched The Vampire Diaries last night and saw Damon reveal more of his true self than ever before. It was  a hold-your-breath moment! The things he covers up with all that bad boy stuff... wow.

** I really wish there was a good movie in the theaters currently. My birthday is next week and that's all I want to do really is go see a fantastic exciting awesome movie. Harry Potter comes out a week too late to fulfill this wish. Oh, well.

** I've been a crappy commenter lately. Sorry for that everyone!

** I'm also getting behind in reviews. For me, this usually isn't a problem I deal with, but lately, yes.

**  I'm afraid that it's time to start thinking Christmas shopping. Double, triple ugh.

** Our neighbor gave us a huge bag of apples from her tree. I'm thinking I need to make apple crisp or some such thing.

** All you NaNoWriMo-ing people make me want to write a book... if only I knew how.

What's on your thoughts today?


  1. I'm so sorry about your brother-in-law and am praying for your family.

  2. Oh my. You are having a week. I'll be thinking of you and your family. I hope next week is better.

  3. Oh my goodness, Suey. I'm so sorry to hear about your brother-in-law. Prayers are going up on his behalf.

  4. So sorry Suey about your brother-in-law. That is horrible. I feel for your sister-in-law.

    I hear you about the Christmas shopping, commenting, and reviews. No worries though because I am most certain you will work it out with the blog stuff being the lowest on that list.

    Take care Suey during this stressful time for your family. You and yours will be in my prayers.

  5. **my thoughts have swerved upon hearing about your family! will be praying about it...

    **apple crisp sounds good and comforting...

    **I'm NaNoWriMo-ing, and the How-to is a bit shaky at best...

    will be thinking about you and yours, hoping for the best.


  6. Oh my goodness, I am praying for you and your family - and for a miracle!! They do happen, although they may not always be the miracle we were hoping for. May you find peace and serenity through all the tumult.

    I'll be thinking of you. It's amazing how you continue on.

    Thanks for hanging in there - there are those of us who love your posts, thoughts, and life!!

  7. I'm so sorry about your b-i-l, please let us know. Those poor kids.

  8. Thanks everyone for all your thoughts and prayers. We said goodbye to our Uncle Rick yesterday afternoon. They took him off life support and then he donated nearly all his organs to help make many other people's lives happy and healthy. He was an amazingly fun person and words can't express how bad we'll all miss him.

  9. I am sorry about the news Suey. I will keep your sister-in-law and the children in my prayers. what a rough time, and horrible time of the year.

    A gift of organ donation in one, for some, can make a loss better because he is helping others to live. I hope the donation offers some comfort to his wife, and you guys of course.

  10. I am so sorry for your family's loss. My thoughts are with you.

  11. Wow! That is a LOT of stuff! First of all, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. That is such a sad tale and I will be keeping your family in my thoughts. Secondly, don't worry about the commenting and reviews! Afterall, I'm just now getting around to commenting!! You are not alone there and I think you've got a few other (more important) things on your mind.
