...I have it. My BFF Mel, and I finally figured out the logistics for my visit to Hagerstown for Thanksgiving. I booked the flight last night. We are both so excited. She has a million fun things planned, but I have a feeling we'll wind up just curling up on the huge sectional, watching trashy reality TV, with Shane (the second sweetest dog in the world) protecting us from the cold, cruel world. And Roger.
Speaking of Roger, we're gonna throw a huge 60th birthday party for him. A casino party. We've outsourced the gambling part, but we'll handle the rest. Mel is the Hostess with the Mostess. I'm a good worker bee.
Even though November seems eons away, I just realized that it's one day more than a month from today. Wow. Cool. Rad. Groovy.
Better run. Lots to do between now and then.
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...
