Hang on... the flood gates opened

Damn I'm good...

guess who has a housekeeper again...

Hang on I gotta do the housekeeper dance...

[and I didn't HAVE to get out the red thigh high boots, however for granting me my way... I will dust them off and surprise my honey...]

So she is coming Saturday and Sunday WOO HOO!!!

I need her so bad... I have to tell you... I am the worlds worst housekeeper... I am a stuffer... the house looks clean enough but if you open a closet you might die...

I must have 72 loads of laundry to do right now... I know you guys think I am kidding but I am not... I have a towel fetish... a long time ago, we could only afford those really really cheap towels from K-Mart... the kind you need 2 just to wrap around you, and they were SO THIN... I swore if we ever had any money I was going to buy NICE towel SHEETS...  Ok... I have at least 52 towel sheets by now [I would buy one at Cost Co every trip] [I am not allowed to buy towels or pens anymore]

Anyway... I would take a picture of my laundry room at the moment but it would ruin my image you may have of me... so I will not...

Oh Guess what... My BESTEST, OLDEST, friend Kim called me today...

[You all know her as "The Most Beautiful Wedding From Hell"]

We have been friends since the 3rd Grade...

There are things I can tell Kim, that I can't tell anyone else in the world... Well, I could tell you but you'd NEVER understand what I'm going through... Kim grew up in a world like mine.. Our lives are like mirrors except I am about 10 years ahead of her in mine...

Both of us went to private school together, both of us had father's pass away, both of us had housekeeper's that lived in the house, both of us have had trust funds, both of us know what its like to call the 'office' when our bank accounts were overdrawn [its a scary thing to have to do... trust me] I do not have to do that anymore but she does... ha ha...,

I know you never hear me talk about those kinds of things... I try not to... it tends to evoke jealousy... You see, if you didnt grow up with money... its hard to understand what that is like...  Its hard to understand... the jealousy... the fake people... the part where you dont know who is your friend because they love you vs the friend who is there because they benefit from your money...

My Mother once told me "Sam is only with you for the money"...

[How do you know she is not right?]

I know... because we had serious hard times... I know because if he wasn't there I would have spent every dime instead of invest in property... I know because it has been 24 years and he is still right here loving me for me... making me laugh every step of the way...

Anyway... You see I ran away at 16... I didn't mean to run away, I was out with my boyfriend and it got later and later... and then I was TOO scared to go home!  A month went by and Kim's Mom found out I was living on the streets [read staying at a girlfriends house] and she sent me a plane ticket to Hawaii... I went to Hawaii and Kim's Mom paid for me to go to private school... [I was in heaven, I loved being there, I loved the school] but then my Mom came and had me picked up, flew me home and sued Kim's parents for taking a minor across state lines without consent!  Before the trial, Kim's parents settled out of court for an obscene amount of money... because they knew the jury had to rule on law, not what was the right thing to do for a child... Later, Kim's father ran for office in Hawaii [and won] and tried to get the law changed...  but the problem was they were afraid every pedophile would bring young children to Hawaii and try to say they were saving run aways... so it never happened...

After Kim's parents settled with my Mom... My relationship with her went south once again and I left home at 17...  [We always had a rocky relationship] Fortunately, we reconciled 4 years before my Mother passed away and I am happy to say I was holding my Mother's hand when she died...

Jeepers! How did you get me to divulge all that...  Lisa Jo are you proud I actually opened up!!!  I have always told Lisa Jo she was my hero because she put it all out there and I have a very hard time doing that... but you guys twisted my arm today...

That is all I have to say about that...

Well HELL I'm glad you finally opened your mouth. Having money and not having money are both hard things to deal with. I've never had money, but always had enough IF that makes any sense. We weren't rich, but we had a nanny/housekeeper too ONLY because it was cheaper in the long run to have someone live with you to take care of all that stuff because the moms were gone to work all the time and there were no dads to help. My father was deceased and my sister was divorced so. I'm glad Sam wasn't after your money you two seem to have a wonderful relationship with each other and your children. That's awesome I think maybe someone was just a little jealous when that was said. I'm happy that you have a special friend that mirrors your life and can really understand where you are coming from. Everyone thinks that just because you have money you don't have to worry... worries come no matter how much green is there, it's part of life and no one escapes it. Glad you got the housekeeper back. I told Lauren one day I'm going to met you in CA she said she's coming too I told her I don't know about that she has some handsome guys over there. She said well tell them to hollar LOL.
Take care, Chrissie

We were very poor, but I never felt jealous of others that had money. In never got the idea it was some sort of God given right. I find it funny when someone who has to work hard thinks that ISN'T the way it should be. For most people it is, & for those it isn't, there are another set of problems. Nothing is really free.
Aha! Now we know the truth. I thought you'd said Kim had that sort of money but you did not. :-) ~Mary

If you have that many loads of laundry you must be very busy doing other things, like pleasing your man! LOL  Sexy blondes don't normally make the best domesticated wives!  JK  Take care Chickie.
