YES, I KNOW WHAT A PARODY IS:
an imitation of the style of a particular writer, artist, or genre with deliberate exaggeration for comic effect.***When I started this blog my intent for it was to be on the humorous side, I really do try to, and often find myself laughing at the madness of life, However: like life, I am unpredictable and even though I often find that laughter is the best medicine, I am also learning that honest , raw, truthful, painful , gut wrenching emotion can cure that which humor often leaves misunderstood.
I am FIFTY…FIFTY…
Do you know what that means? That means for the last fifty years I have been pedaling up hill, BOTH ways, with NO socks or shoes on, however; now I get to take my feet off the pedals and coast downhill the rest of the way!
I have two children that made it to adulthood somehow with me as a parent, for this I am forever thankful and somewhat confused, of course they didn’t make it unscathed: But they are mine. Given the chance I am sure they would trade me in for a new Mom, but I wouldn’t trade them in for a million dollar house on the river, hold on, oh, never mind. ( I hope I taught my kids to laugh at themselves, because if they ever read this and don’t laugh, then it’s another notch in my belt on how I failed at being a parent.)
I have been married, and divorced twice. Ever the optimist ,I am holding on to the hope that the third time will be the missing charm. Hmmm, perhaps that should be my tag line on my profile page on that dating site? Then again that could be misinterpreted for ” Girl that can’t commit” , ” Daddy issues” , “Still in therapy”.
I have two beautiful Granddaughters that are proof that a higher power thought I deserved a second chance at doing something right where children are concerned , and that he has a powerful sense of humor : Sending me two more girls and all….I am laughing while trembling in fear constantly. I am a girl, so I can make wise ass cracks about girls- that is how that works- even if they are tiny, sweet, adoring , beautiful little girls – we all know someday they will be teenagers that is all I am saying.
I have great days, sun filled , green grass I love my life days. I also have dark, grey, cloudy days where I wonder where the silver lining is. Welcome to the ups, downs and all over the maps of my life.
I hope you laugh with me , at me or in spite of me because laughter is good for the soul. I hope you connect , cry or feel other emotions on this ride with me because frankly I am tired of smiling all the time, it’s exhausting and truth be told: I have a cavity and need to go to the dentist. So your saving me money , pain and possibly passing out in the dentist chair ( been there done that), by doing something other than making me smile.
I will write about everything as I see it, some will like it, some will take offense to it, some won’t believe it and some won’t care- whatever you feel, don’t feel, take away from this blog or if you take nothing at all, I am still grateful you are here.
Thank you for spending some time with me.
