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...

That's UrbanDictionary's word of the day. Acronym. All Fucked Up. Wow. Fitting.

Do I have a sign stuck on my back that says, "Kick me"?

I spent all morning putting out fires. Work-related. Then a good four hours at the cardiologist's office this afternoon. On top of that, The D's been awful. And I won't even get started on another sitch.

Tomorrow promises to be another day of crazy, busy client work followed by an agonizing afternoon at a specialist's office. For a test. Luckily, no prep involved in this. The D loves going to the doctor. I'm sure he'll remember and start asking me about our departure time every 30 minutes or so.

I've seen a decline in his cognitive ability since the thing Saturday. Maybe it's just a function of my depleted patience. Or not. It's subtle. I hope it's not a harbinger of things to come.

I'm tired. That's all for tonight...
