Start Spreading the News … yeah, the best but unkept secret. Ever have that? Sure we all have when we are sitting on something waiting to come to fruition and you leak a bit because you just know. It happens. A big book deal, a speaking engagement, a new big client – it is all something that is life changing but yet you just know the minute you open your mouth to that trusted friend that would never, ever say a word it all goes to shit. Yeah, well it happens to many but, who really talks about it? Isn’t it better to have the best kept secret and get so busy that no-one pays attention? Yes but, come on, we know that we have to tell someone, many, the chosen ones. We all have that best unkept secret that really is not a secret as we are so there while trying to be coy or cryptic – as it is our escape.
The Biggest Unkept Secret
I am here to expose the biggest unkept secret. It was a journey that was filled with from the ridiculous to the sublime. Friends gained, friends lost. Rulings that forgot about the law, filings that were late and frivolous that were geared to prolong. The escape is to put your heels are down in the stirrups and want nothing more than focus off of you just to gallop away but yet you still get tossed. Happens. We learn new ways to get back into the stirrups and realize that sometimes life is a big hole in the ground and you can climb up or stay there. Fighters get up regardless and my best unkept secret (damn that Twitter and DM failure) is a story so sensational that it makes soap operas look realistic. Imagine. I suppose I want this heavenly body to come in and take over and say what I should say. However, since that has not happened, I find it easiest to just put it in song:
Top 10 Reasons I am Moving BACK to New Jersey
Number 10: I have driven across country 3 times, I am an even kind of girl. Forget 3x is the charm …I move for 4x is the ticket!
Number 9: Cockroaches and scorpions … do I need to say more?
Number 8: 56% Graduation rate. Really?
Number 7: Mosquitos and Gnats need new blood.
Number 6: Rex called … girl show ‘em it is about football and not the planting of the foot.
Number 5: Clammy is better than salty.
Number 4: Terry wanted me to
push the Vegas line bring back a championship.
Number 3: Jersey Shore is recasting … hey, they can rename it to Cougar Time!
Number 2: Sunblock 10 months a year is so not anti-aging.
And the Number 1 Reason WE am Moving Back to New Jersey is … because the Supreme Court of the State of Nevada said, not once, not twice but three times – lady. Oh sorry a little Lionel.
And there it is.
What Is Next?
A long ass drive. Oh that is not the question that you all have? I guess I have a couple of
miles days to think about it more. Where do you go from here? Returning to a State that is home is exciting as never will I miss a METS game or have to leave the couch for a JETS game but as a mom it is bringing my son into a life of family, friends, pizza to die for =-), great schools and all that comes with it. I will miss wearing shorts in October and April and will dread the day I buy an umbrella, ice scraper, shovel, really heavy coat, scarf, snow boots, etc. I will not miss the legal bills that are starting to approach my age =-( but after 12 years and the school system in such disarray, it was time 2 years ago to make this happen. I guess fast track really is an oxymoron.
See ya in NEW JERSEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! well in a few days because ole blue eyes has it right – Start Spreading the News, I am leaving TODAY!
