Susie is rolling – here’s her third contribution in a row, seen at the link below:

Text from Elle’s website below, plus she has 750+ comments on her blog here:–bitter-blog.html

As the sign suggests….. we offer for sale, our wonderful, cozy, slightly-retro bungalow located just a stones throw from the heart of Portland, in Beaverton, Oregon.     We did everything right.  Married ten years.  Two kids: one perfect boy, one bouncy, perfect baby girl.  We had almost no debt outside of our cars and we bought a house…. but, as with many marriages, our story ends in divorce.

I’m not sure how this all happened… but, all I can is that as soon as your husband/wife starts using new texts languages like :/, or starts talking to you like a college kid…. check your phone bill – you’re probably going to be in for a surprise.  For me that surprise came in the form of a 22 year old college student who likes yoga… and, other people’s husbands.

Well,  I liked him too …. and I’m sure one day I’ll like him again. lol  – So, I guess I can’t blame her too much, right?  This whole thing happened so fast (started in March, 2012), and while it has been the darkest hours of my life so far, it has also been filled with wonderful friends, neighbors and family who have helped in so many ways.  It’s the death of my marriage and the family I had as I knew it… but, that’s all.  I know that sounds crazy, but at some point you have to put the brakes on and realize that worse things are happening to someone else right now as you’re reading this.  As my wise Grandmother always say’s, “Jews in Auschwitz would love to have your problems….”.  And she’s right (aren’t Grandma’s always right?).  This isn’t the worse that could happen to me.

Sure I’m angry, and every bit as sad as the sign suggests… but I’m also equally grateful for the life I do have and I know that the best the way to more forward for all of us is to focus on that.  Hence my quirky marketing For Sale By Owner plan. 🙂  So, our wonderful, cute, sweet family home is FOR SALE!  That’s where YOU come in…. please have a look around our website and feel free to contact me either via phone or our contact page.   I have TRIED to be as honest and forthcoming and factual as possible… but I’m not a realtor, nor do I have the same access to all the fun little stats they have…. but I amassed the info here from online resources and the previous sale of our home to us.


  1. Two great parents.


  2. “greatfamilyhome” suffers from TMI. Just another public airing of personal dirty laundry, like so many other popular celebrity gossip rags and reality tv shows. The inane continues to capture attention at our collective expense. Nothing to see here.


  3. I think we finally have a match for Suzanne.

    ps: Nice Touch. All Class (low):

    “As my wise Grandmother always say’s, “Jews in Auschwitz would love to have your problems….”

    Boy, that wise lucky long-suffering husband must feel like he escaped a death camp.


  4. I thought it was great, she seems like she doesn’t take herself too seriously, honestly. Great marketing. But, I don’t know if these things actually bring any buyers.

    Remember the Bothell Countdown house, where the seller ran a website doing a reverse auction on the house where he was dropping the price until it sold. Got a ton of press, but he chickened out and stopped the countown when it got too low for him, and he didn’t end up selling until much later. I love these gimmicks for entertainment purposes, but I don’t know if they really help move the house.


  5. My only question for this woman (and all other wives who are surprised by a husband’s “unexplained” behavior) is how frequently she expressed attraction and desire for him, and specifically how often and with what level of variety they had sex, compared to when they were dating/engaged/newlyweds.
