If you watch too many old movies, you get the idea that we Southern Belles are just a needy bunch who are sitting around waiting for someone to take care of us. "Oh Fiddle Dee--I just don't know what to do---Pass the Smelling Salts" Well perhaps we do occasionally like to play that silly-dimwit and have all the knights in shining armor running in to protect us---HELLO OUT THERE---Good looking strong Knights----Shining White Horse----swooping in to catch us before we fall-----WHAT'S SO STUPID ABOUT THAT!
Unfortunately in my life today---there is a short supply of strong knights and I have not spotted a white horse in YEARS---so it's up to me to pull up my big girl pants and be strong
Case in point-----Selling my house---
I spent 2 hours with 2 Realtors yesterday---LOVELY women---love them both---part of the body of believers that I attend. SO sweet-----very complimentary of the house---just charming---
AND THEN WE SAT DOWN TO NEGOTIATE
I ended up telling one of them that before I sold this house for one figure that she suggested- they would find it falling down around my dried up corpse---perhaps a little strong but I made my point. Still negotiating--we will see
Remember I just bought a car for $500 below what the dealer paid for it----I CAN BE ONE TOUGH COOKIE!
