Friday Follow and over. The best laid plans never seem to work out damn it!

August 26, 2010

It seems like Leiah, Kimber, Deann and I have had plans for them to come down to meet me when I go to Louisiana. Deann hasn't been sure if she's going to be able to make it, at this point it's not looking good. Kimber isn't sure if she's going to be able to make it either.

Months ago I asked my sister and bro in law that if we could use their guest house to stay in while we're there. They said sure. I talked to my sister this morning and she told me that my bro in law really doesn't feel comfortable with us staying there, because I've never actually met Leiah in person.

Don't get me wrong, I totally understand  where they're coming from. They don't understand online friendships and meeting people online. I guess in their minds they're like "She doesn't even know this person, she could be an axe murderer for all she knows!" (You have to admit Leiah...that's some funny shit!) Some people just don't get it!

But...they shouldn't have said yes in the first place then. Or they should have told me sooner! I mean, 25 days before I'm supposed to get there? Come on now! Uugh...

I was so upset to tell Leiah. I mean, what kind of hostess does that make me? And what does that say about my paranoid family? I wish I had the money to rent her a room. But this trip is already costing me a fortune, if I had known sooner I could have made a point to save up some more money.

But...Leiah is a trooper! She's still gonna come down, if she can't get a room she's going to just come down for one day and then drive home (an hour and half away) that night, I hope she doesn't have to do that though!

I'm just thankful that I'm still gonna get to meet her! Yay!

I can be a witness, Leiah is NOT an axe murderer. I've met her what, three times now and I'm still alive...LOL

I'm sorry you have stress and I hope it all works out in the end.
