I wrote I Think Susan Died at the beginning of December, and after a little bit of soul searching, I decided what to do with Susan.
I shoved her in a box in my closet and took December off from her beady little eyes. I felt terrific about it for a while, but now that Christmas is slowly approaching, the guilt has set in. My guilt level is relatively low because my youngest hasn’t said a word about her. NOT ONE WORD!
This makes me wonder, Did she ever appreciate Susan’s shenanigans? Or did she just go along with it to appease me?
Anyway, I think I’m feeling guilty because due to my age and the length of time I’ve been raising children, I am….. EXHAUSTED!
I want to be in my bed with a good book and live in silence. I’m getting a little cranky, and even babies get on my nerves. All that crying and crawling around is just too much for my mental state. And lucky for me, my teenagers, preteen, and husband feel the same way.
When we are home, we like to chillax!
And babies and Susan will interfere with our ability to chillax. I just hope that I didn’t prematurely get rid of Susan. I don’t want to think that I have single-handedly made my 11 year old grow up too fast. Which to be quite honest, that’s the only reason Susan is still around.
Let me know your thoughts or choose one below;
- Should I bring her out for this last week?
- Keep her in the closet because my daughter hasn’t mentioned her.
One of my fellow WordPresser suggested that I bring her out for Halloween and let her be a creepy little scary elf. I LOVED THAT IDEA!
You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored!
