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 coloquialism for Karma.  What goes around, comes around.  Do unto others.

I'm feeling persecuted.  Like a martyr.  Except this Charles Bronson thing is creeping in. Death Wish.  Vigilante justice. 

Unfortunately, I talk big, but when it comes to risky behaviors, I'm more of a Walter Mitty than a Charles Bronson.  Here's a good trivia question.  What was his character's name?  Answer:  Paul Kersey.  Who knew?

I've had a day.  The Daddler and his favorite daughter (not me), ganged up on me.  I spent 6.5 hours trying to cut through red tape, while being blamed for everything from the national deficit to the 15 wrong turns The D was sure of.

On the up-side.  I got the coolest Brooks sprinting shoes (not that I ever sprint, but they weigh nothing and they're cute and half the price I'd pay at a civilian retail store with exhorbitant sales tax).  We have two boxes of The D's Vella Burgundy wine for 2/3 of the civvy price.  I got a great deal on D&G Light Blue.  I want to asphixiate on this stuff.  I bought a 12 pack of Dos Equis for $10.44.  For Kiddo.  Who will be 21 in July.  And for the record, he'll have to wait until then to drink it.  Also, for the record, The D bought all these goodies as gifts to express his appreciation for the loving-kindness shown to him by his captors sweet, loving family.

I'm tired.  So, so, very tired...
