Twirling head.

Gathering a shite-load of paperwork to present to the Banking Royalty in an attempt to keep my house. Giant Scary Stuff. On top of all the other Giant Scary Stuff.

A few years ago, I almost lost this house in a lawsuit -- a very ugly thing, in which I was held responsible for something I had no part in except in the legal definition of what marriage is. It was the worst of bad things: death, injury, loss of my business, teenage children spiraling to the depths.

Too many lawyers, too much advice. The bottom line: yes they WILL try to take a widow's home from her. Never tell anyone this can't happen, because it can. After numerous settlement attempts, the plaintiff finally settled for less than my original offer. My bill, after all the accounting was completed? Nearly $200k. And then the plaintiff died of a heart attack shortly thereafter.

Karma gets you.

So now it's new circumstances, a different-shaped chopping block, not to mention I've been around a few blocks of my own in the past few years.

Don't mess with me.
Don't mess with my kids.
DO NOT mess with my home.

And that about sums it up.


  1. It is all happening to you at present - I do feel for you. I have a fridge magnet that says "Don't just stand there - hug me".

    You need lots of hugs at present.

  2. Thank-you Susan...and one back to you. xo

  3. Hell hath no fury....

    You go get 'em, T.

  4. I'm glad that your head is connected to your neck. Hang in there. Much courage and strength to you --

  5. It may have been Groucho Marx who said 'My wife was a housekeeper; when we divorced she kept the house'.

  6. T. I love the new blog photo. And you have all the supportive energy I can send for keeping your house.

  7. Does all that qualify as
    "that which does not kill me, makes me strong"
    I wonder?

  8. YAY! You GO, girl!!!

  9. Keep on keeping on...it's all I can think of. xo

  10. Wow! You must be going through your Saturn return. Keep thinking positive! Sending you positive thoughts and prayers. Hugs, Marguerite

  11. Sounds like there's some iron in that backbone. Good for you.
