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...

I took a major risk and increased my position in a small cap, green company. I made this decision this morning, in anticipation of a positive after-market earning release. Huge miss. Earnings, revenue, outlook - they all suck. It's down 7% after market. Oh, well.

I bought another stock - I think it's a great takeover target. And I sold another I think could be negatively affected by positive housing starts and building permit statistics released this morning. It pays a great dividend so even though I won't make a big gain on the sale, it'll be a nice return. Plus, it'll free up some cash for my next reckless bet.

Damn. I hope I can spend more time on this. In fact, I wish this was all I had to do. I love it.

But for now, I need to get The D's chicken pot pie out of the oven. Make a salad. Then head to the Good House to get it in decent shape for my out of town company this weekend.

Comcast is coming in the morning, so I might try to move my computers and printers so I can work there.

Golly, my head is spinning.
