marry him.

The other night when my daughter was on her phone with one of her friends, he sent her a few pictures of his home. I’m not sure what led to him sending them, but she had to show me. I watched as she scrolled through the pictures… huge kitchen… beautiful yard… two balconies… perfect hardwood floors… and all sorts of other things… including a giant indoor pool.

Isn’t it amazing?‘ she asked me.

Yes…’ I said, ‘I think you should marry him!

[Please, no hate. Of course I was just being funny…]

Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    • Right now, I think I might go for it on money alone.

      No, I wouldn’t. But still…

      • I hear ya’. Money does make some things easier, I suppose. Car breaks down? Eh. Pay the man. But, it isn’t gonna solve every problem. Just look at all the people lost to depression, and many of them seemed to have it all, including tons of cash. My buddy, that committed suicide years ago, seemed to have everything going for him. Great education, job, owned a home, young, nice car, etc. None of it mattered, obviously.

        Now, that said, I sure as fuck wouldn’t turn down a lottery win. 😃

        • But… a lot of my stress and anxiety and probably even depression is because of financial worries. If I didn’t have those worries, life wouldn’t be perfect but it would be better than it is now. I’d still have depression as it is my illness, but I wouldn’t have the stress and anxiety… and I’d be better able to deal with the depression. People who already have money have already handled any financial worries. I don’t know if I’m making sense. I’m just saying… shortage of money makes my life worse in almost every way. Having lots would definitely mean a huge improvement…

    First I would want to know 1) can he really afford it, or is it all on credit cards? and 2) who takes care of it all–maids, etc.–and if the guy has kids with them like Arnold Schwarzenegger–

  13. Lol! The cynic in me says that her friend probably knows his way around Pinterest. Either way, time to start making some supervised lunch dates. Y’know, just in case.
