I just finished a Dan Brown novel. The guy who wrote The DaVinci Code. This is the third one of his I've read. They're all the same. Kinda like Grisham. Great beginnings - they pull you right in. Then the action/intrigue/suspense builds until it's way over the top. Work with me, guys - there's just so much disbelief I can suspend. Then, of course, the endings fizzle.
The protagonist is always some honest, intelligent, decent looking guy who saves the day by rescuing his sagely mentor, attractive love-interest, and national security. You get the idea.
So, here I am, at 1 a.m. on a Saturday morning, blogging. Thinking about foraging for food. The only chocolate in this house is a bag of chocolate chips. I should eat a peach. But I just brushed and flossed. So I'll just refill my cool BPA-free water bottle. Head back to bed and hope the Bulimic Cat doesn't use her head as a battering ram on my door when I finally fall asleep.
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...
