The glass is always full of something. I’m addicted to stories and expect happy endings. I get to play with words as an editor, translator, blogger and short story writer. By day I work in the publishing department of a government-funded health information organization.

I’ve lived in Ottawa, Canada, all my life and love the city for its nature, its mix of English and French and its small-town feel. I’ve been a Cub Scout leader for over a decade. I share my home with Husband, Thing Two (my daughter), Thing One (my son) when leftovers lure him home, and Mom-in-Law. We rebuilt half our house several years ago and still have debts and debris to show for it.

I love getting dirt under my fingernails and in my hair and re-memorizing the names of plants every spring. I’ve been crocheting a blanket for Thing Two for more than half her life, and she claims she won’t move out until it’s done.

I strive to be honest and kind.

    Hi Susan. Great post. Grumblings the Dragon must have a clone, because he seems to be at my house a lot! I really appreciate your thoughtful approach to slaying him. If I may share – what sometimes works for me is to remind myself that I – and only I – have complete control over how I feel. While I can’t control what others do, I can certainly choose my reactions and actions. (Wine can help with that…) Looking forward to your next post! 🙂

      Thanks Kerrie. That’s a good point, well worth remembering.
