I'm Done With That

I've come upon another moment in my life where I'm telling myself, "That's it, I'm done with that. I've put it away and I'm not thinking of it anymore." One time was when my boyfriend cheated on me in college. One time is when Daddy really, and I mean really made me mad. Another time was when I got fat and no stomach bug or weekend binger could fix it. This time its over whether or not real estate is gonna back.

I'm not gonna worry about our bills. It's not that I can't handle it. It's just that I have faith that we'll be alright. Someway. Somehow. I'm not gonna worry about what other luxury we can live without. We're down to the bare bones and its not that bad. I'm not gonna worry about stealing my neighbor's paper for her Sunday coupons. I can steal my other neighbor's paper for a while.

I.Have.Faith. I have never really known a life with a lot of extra money so I'm ok. Yea, sure I'd like to get my haircut and shop at Harris Teeter instead of BiLo but I'm ok. We're ok. Big and Lil' don't and can't see how different things were for us and them 3 years ago. They're ok. They're healthy. They're happy and that's all that Daddy and I ever need anyways.

Times like these will show you what's important. They will show you what is necessary. They will show you that life isn't about Harris Teeter and King Street haircuts. It's about BiLo and Fantastic Sams and that is ok. I'm not worried about it anymore. I'm done with that.


  1. Um, talk to Lally about Fantastic Sams. It'll make King Street haircuts worth it.
