I just can't wrap my head around the fact that Christmas will soon be here! I've avoided thinking about it so that Thanksgiving doesn't get drown out as a holiday. But the truth of the matter is...Christmas is RIGHT around the corner...and I'm JUST not ready!
I have the consignment gallery to decorate...at least a little bit..so that it looks festive. I just put together our invitation for the girls annual Christmas craft party at my house. This is one of my MOST favorite parties to put together...but it's not for the' faint of heart hostess'. When you are creating a craft for 15-20 noisy, talkative, do NOT listen to instructions ladies, you've got to have your act together before they descend upon the studio by storm.
This takes preparation...LOTS of preparation! This year we are going to do something really FUN! We are going to take old wine bottles and stuff them with Christmas tree lights and a festive Christmas topper to make moonlights. You glue on those beautiful clear pebble glasses (like you use in floral arrangements) and they make the most PERFECT little night lights, or lights for outside on the lanai. Sorry Sparkies but this is the time of year in Florida that we are ALL outside on our patios.
I'll have to gather together the wine bottles pre-drill the round holes, and have the pebbles, stoppers, and Christmas tree lights available. We'll have plenty of glue guns and glue sticks, and of course, we'll generate PLENTY of empty wine-bottles if we want to carry on the tradition next year. They really look pretty in groups of three, so there you go. I'll get some little Christmas sprays to put around the top of the bottle so it looks more Christmas~ey.
I have no idea how it will all come together but somehow, some WAY, I'll pull it off. I always do and this year will be no different than any other right?
But it IS different. I am fighting and scratching my bloody eyeballs out in the 'save our home' fight. I have some wonderful sparkie friends that tell me I should maybe just accept the fact that we might need to move and reduce that stress from my life. But what they don't understand is that now...it's not EVEN about the house.
It's MORE about the crimes and the fraud that GMAC has committed against us and EVERY other homeowner that they have used fraudulent documents that they have manufactured to hoodwink the homeowner and most alarmingly...the courts to toss them out of their beloved homes. This is no different than mafia tactics! It is dishonest, greedy, fraudulent and criminal. Why should the mortgage lenders be above the law any more than we common homeowners? Especially since we bailed them out when their greed almost bankrupted the entire country and they STILL are giving themselves ASTRONOMICAL bonuses? Bonuses they DO NOT deserve, but they continue to take them because they have been allowed to run amok! Totally amok!
I'm actually conducting my own little Occupy Wall Street Battle!
We HAVE to stop being sheep that these fat cats beat down for their own personal gain! If WE don't stand up for ourselves in this world...what are we teaching our young people who are out there on the front lines getting pepper sprayed right and left for their objections?
What is right, is right, and the policemen should understand that those kids are fighting for the common civil servant's rights just as much as their own. The very people who are paying the police and pushing them to disband these objectors are the 'very powers that be' who will rip those jobs right out from under them when the time comes for budget cuts. Wake up Americans...wake up and smell the coffee!
Anyhow, that's why I REFUSE to lay down and play dead whilst this egegrious treatment is going on against us and in fighting for our own rights...I'm also fighting to bring to light all of the other homeowners who have been hood-winked to be bullied out of their homes.
It's an UPHILL battle, but I'm going to fight to my last breathe, and I'm pushing my attorney to take note of the crimes and fraud that GMAC has committed AND file them with the court, even if the judges here in Lee County love to look the other way and side with the lenders if at all possible. After all, this attorney is supposed to be protecting OUR interests and that's exactly what he's being paid for right?
I've asked to attend this next court date so that I can stare the judge straight in the eye and speak up for ourselves! The attorney knows if I insist on attending that he'd better be on top of his game, I refer MANY many clients to his firm.
No more...roll over Bobbi...no more!
And...I'm happy to report that I've done pretty well with my eating, and I am getting plenty of exercise and shut eye to keep myself in fighting form.
Love you my sparkling sweeties....I wish YOU were coming to my Christmas Craft Party...I surely do! We'd have a GREAT healthy time!
