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...

Lots of us are afflicted with this. Fortunately, I spent the morning at another doctor's office with The Daddler and it was about 60 degrees. I have the thermostat set at 70 here in the Good House. Screw the utility bill. In fact, I have a chicken pot pie in the oven for The D's lunch at this very moment. He needs some comfort food after having a delicate part of his anatomy microwaved this morning. I'm not kidding about that. It reminded me of the lady who put her poodle in the microwave to dry it after she gave it a bath. That was in the early days of the microwave oven. Poor D. I offered him tylenol and he didn't want it. He's tough.

I don't have to set foot out the door the rest of the day so hopefully I'll stay cool, calm and collected. Relatively speaking, anyway.

I had shitty day yesterday. I decided to get on the roof to clean the gutters late yesterday afternoon. All the big trees made the heat bearable. I've been doing major soul-searching. I think it's time for a shift in priorities. I think I'm going to become more scarce. And as I learned in Econ 101, that'll make me more valuable.
