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...

Taking a Break

I've done all the tax stuff I'm going to do today.  Between handling my newfound responsibilites as a landlord and working toward the looming tax deadline, I've been really, really busy.  So I'm ready to take a break, because I'm going to have to get back on it tomorrow.  I'm heading to some friends' house to cook out.  We have this arrangement.  I get the ground beef at the Folks' Folly meat market, and they do the rest.  These are the best burgers in the world.  We always make extra so we'll have leftovers for The D and Kiddo (when he's around).  I'm quite sure there's no pink slime in this stuff!

My friends live less than a mile away, so I'm going to hitch up the dog and walk over there.  Their dog is named Charlie (he inspired Lucy's name), and they are BDFs.  Best Dog Friends.  He's a big Weimeranner, but my little Lu-Lu thinks she's the Alpha Dog.  They bonded over their common lust for squirrels.

Gotta run.  Over and out...
