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...

Motherhood, redux...

The Daddler had two wisdom teeth removed today.  It was a little more complicated because I have to adjust his coumadin whenever he has an invasive procedure.  I took him for an INR last week (blood clotting test), and it was fine.  I was worried because when I did the laundry, he had a hankie and some shorts stained with blood.  Very atypical.  I think Lucy might have been involved.

There's a long story re his wisdom teeth, but they needed to come out.  He did just fine - didn't even have nitrous.  I swear, I've asked for laughing gas for an overdue cleaning before.  He has a high pain threshold, though.  I didn't inherit it. 

He had tomato basil soup, watermelon, a free milkshake from Chik-fil-a, two glasses of iced tea, and some apple sauce. 

We changed the gauze.  He slept.  I took over Lucy duties.

So, all's well that end's well.

Over and out....
