    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    Somebody sent me a very insightful email by T.D. Jakes that addressed people who want to "walk away from you"...that you should just let them go. It made a lot of sense. If anyone would like to read it, just PM me your email address. I've had it for a while, and I still pull it up to read it every so often. It helped me get my head in the right place.

    Gabriel,

    They did NOT say that to you!!! Oh my goodness! What a bunch of ingrates!!! How did you just not rip them a new one?!!!

    When I got married, one of our friends' widowed moms who was living on fixed income came to the wedding and gave us a beautiful card with a crisp $20 bill in it. Her kids had given us extravagent gifts and she didn't need to give us anything! -- but she was so proud that she could give us that. It meant a lot and was so touching. I think I said this before--the gifts and all that are very nice. But for me, it was the cards with the hardwritten notes that meant the most. I still have all of them saved in a beautiful box.

    Oh yes they did say that. Actually my reply was: "You sure can buy something for $20.00, a new ATTITUDE you ungrateful snots." That was the last time I bought them anything.

    Bravo!!! That is the perfect response... I cannot believe anyone would say that to their uncle!!! Their mom/your sister should've scolded them right then and there but I'm guessing they learned their manners (or lack thereof) from them. And are they on crack? You can buy PLENTY of things with $20... Clothes, barrettes, candy, lattes, pregnancy tests (hey, it's me after all!), a CD, a DVD, a videogame if it's on sale, a gift card for the mail carrier, etc. etc. etc.

    UGH!!!

    Back in the last 80's, you could buy a whole heck of a lot with $20. They must have been super spoiled brats.

    Without going into my sisters (lack of) parenting skills too deeply, the boy wanted a pair of $150.00 sneakers once, my sister (idiot) showed him her paycheck and said this is what I make and started giving him a song & dance about everything (personally I feel it is not the kids business to know what the parents earn, a mere no you can't have that or we can't afford it should be enough) anyway the kid keeps whining about these damn shoes (he was 15 at the time) so my stupid sister shorts the rent to buy the shoes and then borrowed money from someone to make up the shortfall. Last I heard years ago was that it was never paid back....

    Gabriel, like a lot of kids, I wanted expensive things, too, when I was young. My parents bought me what they thought was appropriate and then when I was old enough, I worked part time after school and during summer vacation. Well, after working in a factory one summer, I never asked my parents for any expensive jeans or designer anything. A lot of kids have no idea how difficult it is to earn money and their parents aren't doing them any favors by just handing them everything. My parents had no qualms paying for our education, but if we wanted anything like concert tickets or a car, we'd better get off our butts and work for it.

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    I'm starting to wonder if nearly everyone doesn't have a relative they would like to just write off. I've pretty much done my younger sister that way; she is the family baby by 7 years and so I thought she would eventually show some maturity, but now she is over 40 and it's still not happening. I still call on occasion, but always get voice mail and leave a short message. To be honest I'm usually sort or relieved she doesn't answer. I might or might not see her holidays, could care less about that either since if there is any drama it's swirling around her and the attitude. If she does call, it's usually becaquse she's bugging me to draw/paint something for her. I'm not going to do it, and she should know that I do art when I want to, and give/sell it to whom I please. Anyway, if it's not that, it's whining about how she wishes she could go on the vacations I do. Hey, whatever, so long as you pay your own way...that won't happen either!

    Lois Lane, I agree with you 100%- my parents never bought expensive, uneccesary things for us older kids, we had to do that ourselves, plus pay our car bills, etc. and I think it was a great way to learn how things really are. The above mentioned youngest was spoiled rotten, in my opinion, and it shows, big time.
    I have found the Truth and it doesn't make sense.

    Were you covering the red? or adding the red? I grabbed the wrong box of brown and it had mahogany in it. I ended up with burgundy hair. Then I had to put a dark ash brown to subdue the red. It's really dark now and there are still tint's of burgundy. I don't even recognize myself.
    I was adding the red. Except on my bathroom mirror i cant see it. But i can see it on the walls, some remnants of the dye ended up there. whatever i didnt clean up anyway.
