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...

Call me Leona

As in Leona Helsmley.   Because I've joined the ranks of Real Estate Mavens.  Just this morning, I added the third rental property to my portfolio.  It's been a very time-consuming endeavor, but since I have plenty of time, it's a good thing.  In addition, I've been working on renting The Good House.  I've had a couple great prospective tenants.  Very cute, professional young couples.  I've had a little trouble with the current princess tenant when it comes to trying to show/advertise it, and I hate conflict, but I'm on the verge of channeling Leona. A/K/A, the Queen of Mean.

I'll be so glad to get rid of The Princess.  Especially since my rent revenue will increase 75%.  Crazy, huh?  No more Friends and Family Discounts here.

So, on top of managing my new real estate empire, I'm sticking with Taekwondo (skipped today, though, after getting lost in the hilly woods of Shelby Forest yesterday - soooo sore.)  TKD has come in handy with Sally and Lucy.  I've been using the roundhouse kick to keep them from jumping up on me with their muddy paws.  I'm beginning to think Sally is the Spawn of Satan.  Hound of the Baskervilles.  Half pit bull.  The other night, I had a nightmare involving being chased by pit bulls.  She's vicious.  I need to up my homeowners coverage.

Well, better run.  I need to get the key at the new house - it's under the mat.
