Not only was I born (relatively) poor, lived (relatively)poor all my life, and now at 60 am still (again, relatively) poor and losing money in my retirement accounts hand-over-fist every day with the economic downturn lately.. not only that, but one of my direct relatives was Rev. John Lothrop who came to America from England in the 1600’s (my maiden name was Lothrop), but now I learn that “Sarah-Barracuda” is related to me thru John Lothrop, as well? I am also related to FDR (he is my 13th cousin) as well as to President James A. Garfield who was my 4th cousin… Those don’t bother me. I know you can’t pick your relatives, but this is just too much of a low blow for me to bear….
I’m throwing in the towel after this one….
… or was it “that one” ?
I can’t wait for the election to come and be gone, with Obama firmly ensconced as the next President – not only because I really like and respect the guy, but I don’t think I can stand one more day, let alone four more weeks, of Ms. Palin the barbarian and her ilk in my face and claiming to be a long lost relative of mine.
I need saving!
P.S. I did actually have 5 days off from work last week. Paying work, that is. I rested my fingers and I took out and organized all my DVD’s and VCR movies so now I can find one if I have a mind to… that was my biggest accomplishment.
