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...

I'm on my way.  It's an inferno out there and I'm headed out in about two minutes to take The D to the VA Hospital for not one, but two appointments for him to qualify for some veteran's benefits.  I cannot imagine how bad it'll be on the hot pavement in the medical center surrounded by all the concrete buildings radiating heat.  But even worse is the thought of being in beaurocratic purgatory all afternoon.  He's excited, though.  He loves going to doctor's appointments.  Plus, this'll probably be reminiscent of his years in the Air Force.

Too bad my damn Kindle isn't here yet.  It's supposed to come today.  I hope they'll leave it at the door if we're not here.  I think I'll put a note on the door and ask them to put it on the carport.  It'll blend in with all the other boxes, so I won't have to worry about it getting stolen.  I wish someone would steal some of that shit out there so I wouldn't have to go through it.  Oh, well.  Off to hell...
