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...

Tossing and Turning

Dammit. I didn't sleep a wink. My knee hurts like a mo-fo. I couldn't get comfortable, even with every possible position and combination of pillows under and around my knee. At least it's just a dull ache and not the throbbing thing. And my range of motion doesn't seem impaired. It doesn't even hurt when I poke around on it. As far as whether it's swollen, that's hard to tell. Try looking really hard at your knees. They're pretty weird looking. All kinds of lumps and bulges you'd never notice under normal circumstances. I couldn't tell any difference between the right and left, though.

Instead of being embarrassed about falling off the stupid office chair yesterday, I'm pissed because they have such cheap shit for the administrative offices. I'm sure that stupid chair was some sort of cast-off office furniture from the same tightwad thrifty committee member who donated the lovely nine inch CRT monitor I use there.

So here I am, at 3:30, wide awake. Just as well. I need to get started with my day. I took some tylenol, so hopefully, this ache will be a little less distracting. I have such a low pain threshold. Seriously, I'm not just a cry-baby - I experience pain more intensely than the average person. It's a problem. I'll try another ice pack when I get my coffee. Which should be ready right about now. Later...
