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...

Sentry Duty

I'm standing guard tonight. The Daddler had some chest pain today. He didn't mention it to me until I was about to sashay out to lunch with my girl, Jo. After extensive interrogation and deliberation and consultation with the cardio group, I decided to stick around here. They think the pain is just related to the pacemaker (which is how The D described it), so I resisted my original impulse to hightail it to the emergency room. I resisted my desire for Mexican food, too. In case you haven't noticed, I'm a selfless, caring vessel pouring out the milk of human kindness.

Kiddo's out of town, so I'm forsaking my Enchanted Aerie so I can sleep in his room across the hall from The Daddler. So I can hear him if he needs me during the night.

Wow, all of a sudden, I'm so tired. Hope I'll be able to sleep...
