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...

A Blissful Friday Afternoon

My windows are open.  After a miserably hot summer, the cool fall weather is that much sweeter.  I'm content.  I can't think of a better feeling.  Well, maybe one, but it's much more transient.

I've decided to keep mum about that, though.  I was scolded for blabbing.  So I'll act accordingly.  I'm generally an open book, but I also take very seriously the trust placed in me.  As an auditor, I had privy to the most confidential information.  Namely, payroll.

When I prepared tax returns, I tried not to judge when clients made lots and lots of money and gave nothing to charity.  When they complained about owing taxes, I bit my tongue.  I wanted to tell them that if they had enough withheld or paid estimates, they'd be ok.  I also wanted to say, "If you make a lot, you pay a lot."  That would've been a CLM, though.  Career Limiting Move. 

Gonna quit blogging now.  I'll get back to work.  So much to do.

But I'll probably just enjoy the bliss and get an early start tomorrow...
