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...

And They Called It...Puppy Love

I promise, you're gonna get that tune stuck in your head.  We welcomed our newest canine to our home yesterday.  And we're all head over heels in love.  Except Lucy.  She's tolerating her baby sister.  Sally.  Sally Brown.  Get it?  Lucy van Pelt.  Sally Brown.  Yes, there's a theme.

But the biggest theme of all is The Daddler.  The way he manages to adapt to changes.  I only hope I can cope that well when I'm 81!  Even though he was dead set against getting a new pup, he softened up when he saw all the little things I brought home (tiny coat, harness, leash, etc.)  And from the moment he set eyes on her, he was madly in love.  But what is cuter than a puppy?  Except at 2 a.m. when she's crying for her mama. 
Oh, well.  I'm getting kinda reckless lately.  Carpe-ing the diem.  And enjoying the ride.

More later...
