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...

Wreck of the Day


Mine is a wreck, indeed.  For some reason, though, I'm not bothered by it.  Very few things I do are life or death.  Some of The D's stuff is, and I've learned to priortize.

I had a call today.  From some of my DeSoto county relatives.  They need my help.  It's a good thing I'm a forgiving sort.  This is the aunt who said she'd rip me to shreds when she saw me.   I don't hold grudges.  Here's one of my favorite quotes:

  One of the keys to happiness is a bad memory.
  - Rita Mae Brown

I decided I'd try to help.  Only because I like idea of getting affirmation.  And helping.  And racking up points against EV.  Does that sound calculating?  It is.

And I have some spare time.  Since the cast-off computer at my pain-in-the-ass client is so messed up, I can't finish year-end stuff.  Which is ok by me.  I have to concentrate on renting a couple 'o houses.  Soon.

Gonna go.  Chicken & dumplings need to be divvied up and frozen.  I'm a regular Julia Stewart.  Martha Child?  Betty Bisquick is more apt.  Don't knock Bisquick though.  That's the best way to make pineapple upside down cake.  Hmmm.  I think I have the ingredients for that.  The Daddler will be so happy. 

Over and out...
