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...

Better Day

Wow. I've been so very focused. I actually slept a good eight hours last night. I've worked hard since 6 a.m. Accomplished everything on my list that was urgent and made progress on some others.

My housekeeper came today and my Enchanted Aerie no longer looks like a pig sty or a frat house. I fixed The Daddler a good lunch. I'm going to figure out his dinner and stick it in the fridge and head to my surrogate mom's house (who happens to be my Future Fantasy Mother-in-Law) and hang out. I might take some pictures from our Boston trip.

She said she has lots of leftovers, so I won't worry about dinner.

I added major value to my clients today (more than paid my fees for the month), so I feel good about my work.

The Daddler's been nicer. My house is clean. I have fresh sheets on my bed. Kiddo did errands for me without complaining. So it's all good.

Still lots to do. JoJo wants me to go to Salsa lessons tomorrow night. If I have another day like today, I can manage. Not that I give a shit about Salsa dancing. I'm just a good friend.

All for now...
