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...

Watch this. Please. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VvcohzJvviQ
But really, just listen to it. The video is strange.
Today, I had the best peach I've had in a very long time. My three favorite foods are: peaches, olives and tomatoes. Olives are consistent. Peaches and tomatoes, however, aren't. They're so seasonal and unique. Good peaches and tomatoes are rare. Rarer, lately. And so very transitory. Excruciatingly so. Which makes them that much better.
I had another of my favorite foods today. Rare filet mignon. It was so good. I ordered it rare, but I think extra rare would've been better. One of these days I'm going to order steak tartare. What is it with me and the bloody meat? I think I'm anemic. Is that why I bruise so easily?
Ok, all this talk of food makes me hungry. I happen to have peaches, olives and tomatoes in this house. But I'd rather go try on my new treasures. And finish my book. And change purses.
