Welcome to Bits & Bobs!

Louise-Quote-72DPIIf you’re looking for Bits & Boobs, that’s a different site entirely. And I really can’t help you there.

If you’re looking for FDA-approved parenting tips, cleaning tips or organizational tips, this is also not the site for you.

But hey, if you’re looking for humor and randomness from someone whose life has been a great big spiral of suck lately, then come on in!

And by spiral of suck I mean becoming a widow.

And by even suckierness I mean being waitlisted for a widow’s support group. “Sure! Go ahead and grieve! But just when it’s a little more convenient for us.”

I’ve lodged a complaint with the creators of the ‘get out there and try new things’ advice (widowhood should not be on the list. Neither should crack cocaine, I suppose, but I can’t help everyone.)

Until I hear back, Bits & Bobs is my way of trying to make my heart chuckle. Climb my way out of the fog. Catch the next train back to sanity.

I hope it makes you laugh, too.

No pressure, or anything.


p.s. The beauty of having a life that needs to be un-sucked is that you don’t have to be a widow to play along. Anything counts. So let’s do this together. Let’s laugh through the tough. And maybe one day our lives will be a little less sucky.

    yea. being a widow sucks as does watching your husband slowly succumb to an illness while trying to raise children. I was ‘lucky’ as my kids were very young when it happened to me so they don’t have to deal with the memory of the nightmare.

    Even after 19 years, when i tell people my story, they say things like “I’m sorry”. I don’t know if that is what i want to hear as just to acknowledge that the entire experience was downright HARD and that it has shaped who I’ve become and in many ways, who my kids have become.

    I tried to make the best of it, and have since remarried. My kids are approaching grown and life is pretty darned good now.

    But i remember….

      Sorry for what you went through. I know it was hard! Glad to hear that things are going so well for you now. That’s comforting.
