Sad. Mopey. Down. Synonyms for depressed. Interestingly enough, there's only one synonym for synonym. And no synonym for antonym. Weird, huh?
Typical for me on a Sunday. I dreamed about Mother last night. Unfortunately, the Emotional Vampire also made an appearance. I keep thinking I'm over that, and then she resurfaces. Like scum on a pond. Pus on a sore. Methane over a landfill.
Enough. You get the idea.
When I woke up, in a start, I turned on the crazy talk radio. I think there was something about numerology. Not sure. I'm sure there were ETs, too. Aliens. UFOs. I have to figure out another way to rock myself to sleep. Because late this morning, I looked out the window of my enchanted aerie, and saw a little white orb floating up into the ether. At first I thought it was a dandelion seed. Then a feather - think Forrest Gump. A bubble. I concluded that it was a visitor from another planet.
I'm tired. My kitchen is a mess. The laundry is stinking. And tomorrow is garbage day. If I can get everything to the curb tonight, I can sleep late tomorrow. So..., off I go...
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...
