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'm a Genius

I figured out a way to save major tax dollars for my most important client. I did a little research, then called his CPA to run the idea by him. It's a long shot, but if it pays off, I'll make major points. I already added huge value with another creative idea. But I've been slacking off. This could make a difference.

See, I'm no accountant. Used to be. And that's not a bad thing. My crazy, creative brain seems to take the years of compliance work and convert it into crazy good ideas to find money in the form of tax savings, better interest rates, insurance premiums, etc. Clients love that. Don't get me wrong. I only work with completely honest people. I don't take stupid risks (except when it comes to men). I cover my bases and hedge my bets.

All of a sudden, I'm at a loss for words. I'm distracted by the thunder. Grateful for the rain. And relief from the heat.

I feel quiet. Peaceful. In a state of inertia. And for me, that's a good place to be.
