Here's hoping that 2013 is a better year! I've noticed a pattern in my life. My odd years are better than my even years. Maybe that's because I was born in an odd year. Or maybe just because I'm odd.
Highlights of odd years include Kiddo's birth, and, ummm... Can't think of any more right now, but maybe the odd years just aren't bad. As for the even ones, 2010 was a year from hell, and not just because I lost my mother. I can think of several other major misfortunes, but I don't want to talk about them.
Maybe it's a self-fulfilling prophecy. Probably is. I should count my blessings for 2012. I'm sure there were many. I'll think about that today. Maybe I'll have time to blog about them later.
Either way, I think I'll hold on to my superstition for another year, in spite violating my perpetual New Year's resolution. To stop procrastinating.
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...
