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...

Feliz Cinco de Mayo

It's like July 4th, I think. South of the border. Not sure. All I know is that JoJo is coming to get me and we're going to some mexican place. She said she's inviting a "friend." He's short. She doesn't like short men. She loves her heels. I tend to like short men. As long as they're not shorter than me or have a Napolean Complex.

I have a sneaking suspicion that she's in matchmaking mode. I love meeting new people, but I'm a one-at-a-time girl. The ADD thing. Plus, dude is dreamy. We had a meeting of the minds last night. All I'll say is that he's fearless. And that's huge. 'Cause I'm really, really scary. And proud of it.

Ok, I think I hear JoJo. Gotta run.


  1. Did you tell about short guy at May 5th celebration ? Maybe I missed it. How on the earth do you find the time to blog as much as you do---I am amazed...totally...you're incredible.

  2. Nothing to tell. We said hi, and it was crowded, so we moved on to somewhere quieter.
