A unique opportunity just came my way. Something I would never think of. Ever.
A trip to Vietnam and Cambodia.
I know. Especially since I've never even been to Europe. Brazil is the extent of my overseas travel. Not counting the fact that I lived in Japan for a year. Which doesn't count, because I was a year old when I left. Yup. I was born there. I'm a proud Air Force Brat.
Lucy does that, too. It makes me crazy. But it's kinda sweet, sentimental, and reminiscent of the good ole' days. Luckily, she's gotten too big to get through the iron gates in the backyard. All the treats The Daddler administers have an upside.
Back to my point, though. Mel has traveled the world. She and Roger planned their wedding in Iceland, but that stupid volcano eruption put the kibosh on that. As she started talking about the Indochina peninsula, it sounded better and better. First, it's cheap. Next, it's undiscovered by tourists, and therefore, unspoiled. Beautiful. Then there's the thing about going with Mel. We have so much fun together.
Ok, all this to say that I'm seriously considering it. I need to do some research, including cash flow projections, but I think it would be the opportunity of a lifetime. It's not until November, but this kinda thing requires lots of preparation. Probably a visa. Malaria medicine. Hepatitis vaccinations. Tetanus. Typhoid fever.
Lots to do. Better run. Over and out...
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...
