Enough is Enough

When I was a kid, we had the coolest Barbie playhouse.  It was from the 1960s and I’m sure Mom got it at a garage sale somewhere. 

Or maybe from someone’s garbage.  She was a good “recycler”!!!  Though usually she sent us kids to grab the goods!!  🙂

Anyway, that Barbie house was awesome.  It had a console stereo with fake albums and everything!!!  I found some pictures online and it sure brought back memories:

The best thing about this house was that it folded up and looked like a suitcase:

So one day, I had enough!!!  Enough of living in a house full of people, enough of never getting my own way, enough of a bossy big sister, enough of a spoiled little sister, enough of being a middle child, ENOUGH!!!!!!

I’m not sure how old I was but I’m thinking it was before my little brother was born so that would make me younger than 9-years-old.   Of course, if you ask my sisters (the aforementioned bossy & spoiled ones) they would say I was a teenager but don’t believe that!!!  They’re memories are terrible, bless their hearts.

On this day of enough, I packed my suitcase-looking Barbie house with all my worldly goods and started out on my own to face the cold, cruel world!!  I went down the driveway and started down our street determined to get away from all my troubles!!!

About halfway down our street, I turned and went back home.  What, you may ask, could possibly turn me around??????

Mom yelled, “Lunch”!!!!!

Whats a girl to do???  She’s gotta eat!!

That was the first and last time I ever ran away from home!!  🙂

  1. While it may have been the last time you ran away from home, it was NOT the last time you said, “I hate this house & everybody in it!” Oh, the drama of the middle child.
    Love, The Spoiled One.

  2. First of all, I don’t recall you having any “Bossy” sisters!! Second of all, you may have packed that “suitcase-looking Barbie house” but it certainly wasn’t YOURS as you say. It belonged to all of us so it’s a good thing you turned around at the bottom of the hill or you might have been arrested for stealing! Just saying!
