Welcome to my world!

My life's been crazy since my Daddy moved in with me immediately after my mother's death in October 2010. My one and only kiddo headed to college at Carolina at the end of August. So...I lived on my own, for the first time in my life, for a total of a blissful six weeks. Then, I started the parenting gig with my dad. He's a combination of a grouchy old man, a surly teenager and a temperamental toddler. Needless to say, I get very close to the brink of insanity sometimes. I get through life by finding the humor in difficult circumstances. And for some reason, I wind up in the weirdest situations. I couldn't make this stuff up. So I wind up having lots and lots crazy adventures which make great stories to share with my friends. Writing about my life is so therapeutic. My ramblings range from funny to sad to angry (full of cuss words) to sweet. While my focus is dealing with the trials and tribulations of being a parent to my Daddy, I have lots of random, totally unrelated posts. Whatever's on my mind. I love to make people laugh, and I'm happy to think my readers will get my strange sense of humor. And maybe, people who are in my situation will be encouraged. That's all I can hope for...

Oh My...

Daddy just threw up. It was yesterday's meatloaf. He's barely eaten since.

He ran to the bathroom and hung his head over the sink. I couldn't talk him into the toilet. So now I have a sink clogged with barely digested meatloaf. Not that I care. I'm just so glad that crap is out of his poor stomach.

I gave him a cold cloth and took him back to his recliner. I fixed a sugar-free ginger ale and some Tums. I think he's better.

Golly, it's that same feeling I had when my baby was a toddler. Even though it's probably not serious, it breaks my heart to see him so sick.

Taking care of The Daddler brings on deja vu. It reminds me of how much I love my kiddo. And now that he's managing just fine on his own, living it up and having the time of his life at UNC, it's comforting to know my Daddy needs me.

I'll keep my ears open tonight, but I think tomorrow will be better. Maybe we'll even get some sunshine...
