#Cindyism Heartache & Humor? Juggling Our Family & Clients From Texas Twins Events & The Pawning Planners….

People ask where I get my sense of humor all the time. It’s a blessing to remove me from the world I live in and and place me in a world of laughter.

My twin sister, Wendy Wortham and I live in a squirrels buffet, a world of mixed nuts. We didn’t have an easy childhood and now in midlife, things got worse. How? Between my daughter, Stephaney and my dad, it’s hard to surprise me anymore. Really, I’m not kidding.

I’m busier than the antacid stand, during the annual chili cook off, in Orlando Florida, at Festival park. If common sense were cheddar cheese, a few folks wouldn’t have enough to set a mouse trap.

About sixteen years ago, I realized my daughter was on drugs. Anyone reading this that has dealt with a drug addict will understand how trying to help is a thankless task. Stephaney could start a fight in an empty room!

How committed to helping her was I? I won custody of her twin daughters to give them the life my twin and I never had. Stability was something that as a child I never knew.

A few months ago, my daughter was released from the mental ward again for the third time in three months. I begged them to keep her. But, God must’ve been busy as I prayed for a break from the sad reality of having a drug addict with mental illness for a daughter.

When they were handing out good kids thirty two years ago, someone handed me a kid that was so challenging that if she had been born first I wouldn’t have had another child.

The fact that her deadbeat dad never paid child support only heightened my struggle. The twins deadbeat dad doesn’t believe in paying child support either, as well as my daughter, based on 100.00 per child per month, EACH parent of the twins owes me 200.00 each per month. Since their birth as of today EACH parent owes me in EXCESS of 41,000.00 EACH!

Last weekend, my dad who has never acted crazy was committed. How Stephaney keeps getting out and my dad got in I continue to ponder.

My dad has raccoons in the attic that he thought were squatters. My daughter actually is a squatter in an abandoned house near my sisters house. Ironic ain’t it?

Since I refuse to move my daughter into my bursting at the seams home that houses all three of my granddaughters, my other daughter and my husband, my daughter Stephaney is homeless. She would rob me blind and terrorize the kids if I allowed her back. I no longer feel sorry for Stephaney. She had opportunities to make something of herself and blew them over and over.

Homeless people aren’t all folks that fell on hard times. A few of them burned every bridge and found themselves homeless on their path to self destruction. Stephaney did.

We used to feel sorry for homeless people but have learned that someone holding a sign saying they are hungry will take your money, shove it in their pocket and wait for the next “mark.”

I like to stay busy and those are also my favorite quotes. Some of my busy quotes come from sitting on my ass. People screaming “mom or meme I can’t find this.” Sometimes I’m sitting on my ass, and come up with a good one! I spend most days in the passenger seat of my sisters SUV heading to an Appraisal Appointment or to a store near a Texas Prison. During the week, we meet clients and do Prison Weddings and photo shoots. I’m the photographer.

My dad was moved yesterday to a senior nut house. We tried to get him out of this “mini vacation” at Camp Crazy but couldn’t.

He shot up his house trying to shoot the squatters he believed were in the attic that happened to be raccoons. The fire department saw the bullet holes and called the police. The police believed my dad was crazy and sent him to JPS Tenth Floor with the homeless people who fight to get in there for free meals and a roof over their head. My dad was fighting to get out and instead got transferred to the Senior Camp Crazy. It actually looks like a luxury resort.

We found out he was transferred yesterday while running errands and fielding calls from my crazy daughter who not surprisingly isn’t in a nut house but, obviously belongs there.

Dad has 7-10 days to prove he isn’t crazy while we deal with my daughter who is.

Today, me and my twin sister have a TV interview at 1PM with WFN1 about our unique businesses that make dream events a reality. We’ve met a few crazy clients but nothing compares to our crazy family.

Quite frankly, we deserve an academy award for acting normal while dealing with production crews and news media along with a melting pot of clients while dealing with our crazy family!

Shaking off the lunacy my daughter brings to our lives and acting like we don’t have a problem in the world with our dad in the nut house and my daughter running wild isn’t easy. Thanks Xanax.

This morning I arrived at Wendy’s house with Stephaney acting crazy digging thru the fridge like she lives here and grabbing cokes, food and whatever else she could get her hands on. My daughter has no boundaries. NONE. She thinks it’s okay for me and my twin, to spend money on gas, cigarettes, food and other essentials for her an adult and forgets that for fourteen years my sister and I have fully supported both our daughters without any financial help from their mother or father.

Today, while bathing at Wendy’s house, Stephaney told us the neighbor went to the abandoned house and asked who she was and why she was living there? She replied “my aunt told me I could live here.” No one told her she could live there. She decided to do that all on our own. While we keep hoping the neighbors will call the cops or she might get picked up driving a car with outdated tags, no insurance, suspended license and warrants for her arrest, she keeps driving around screaming bible verses and acting crazy.

Running an electric cord from the main house to the maids apartment over the garage where she’s staying, Stephaney also used the rolling trash cans to fill with water from the neighbors hose in order to fill buckets to flush the toilet. The maids quarters has no water or electricity. Although the three home estate is abandoned, Stephaney figured out the main homes have electricity and water.

We can’t kick her out. We’ve tried. Roaming around the neighborhood in a bathing suit with non matched shoes, Stephaney stands out. Rarely making any sense when she talks because she stopped taking her medication, anyone in that neighborhood seeing her in this condition, must be thinking, she wandered off the bus line or Como a few blocks away where folks sit on the lawn drinking forties.

The line between rich and poor is only a few miles difference. I guess rich folks don’t drive around before blowing $650k and up to move into the mansions not to far from the slums.

Common sense is like breath spray- the folks that need it the most, won’t use it at all, and get up in your face anyhow!

We finally got my daughter out of Wendy’s house and got to go run and get ready for this TV show but the “back story” is often far more interesting than the front story.

While I slap on a face and be entertaining cause that’s what people expect, my humor keeps me from crying over what to do about not only my daughter but also my dad….God bless us all folks

*****UPDATE**** on Friday July 6 2018 my daughter called and said that she had walked to a nearby park and called Fort Worth police to pick her up and transfer her to JPS tenth floor. Thank you Jesus for answering our prayers.

#cindyism Twinning with TWO sets of #TexasTwins #Thepawningplanners  Wendy Wortham and Cindy Daniel

When we load up our SUVs with two sets of twins, we argue over what radio station, where we will stop for food, and who sings BETTER on the “sing outs” between us!

#cindyism #quote “FAMILY is SIMILAR to a POTLUCK dinner, YOU don’t HAVE to LIKE everything THEY bring to the TABLE, to APPRECIATE the MEAL” although some kinfolk are… “just LIKE a BLISTER, popping UP, when the WORK is already DONE”

I love them all, LAZY or NOT!

I am truly grateful for them, even IF they occasionally get on my NERVES, like a STUMP tail STEER, in FLY season! I am always prepared to GO anywhere WITH them, even if THEY argue the ENTIRE way. They keep me….

“HAPPIER than a BOOMTOWN bartender COUNTING tips, AT the END of the SHIFT, on a SINNERS Saturday NIGHT”

However…..

“Even IF you STEP in OLD shit, it’s STILL going to STINK”

Past PROBLEMS can STALL future PLANS, but ONLY if you ALLOW them too! That’s why we work through problems when they START!

“YOU could GIVE some PEOPLE a GOLD ass HOLE, and THEY would still COMPLAIN, their FARTS stink” And this DOES apply to the inlaws of the family!

my response… “Don’t TELL me HOW to PLAY, when YOU didn’t SHOW up for PRACTICE, and ain’t EVEN in the GAME”

I don’t appreciate uneducated ADVICE from outsiders! “YOU can’t LEAD the CHUCK wagon, IF you don’t KNOW how to COOK, uneducated ADVICE, can CAUSE your POSSE, to STARVE to DEATH”

And of course I speak in quotes all day long, mainly because I CAN!

“EVERY day ISN’T a BUFFET, especially IF your LAZY, keep it REAL before YOU are EAT the MEAL, all BISCUITS and no GRAVY”

“TALKING the BARN doors OFF the HINGES, has NEVER fed the ANIMALS”

Shut up and work!

“SOME people STEP in SHIT, and EXPECT you, to CLEAN their SHOES”

“That’s NOT my LUGGAGE, and it AIN’T my TRIP”

#cindyism “IT doesn’t TAKE broad SHOULDERS to CARRY a GRUDGE, a NARROW mind CAN hold ONTO one FOREVER” (I am OPEN to ANYTHING) if they get mad at me, I just have go on working, without them.

“HAVING a BAD attitude, is LIKE wearing DIRTY socks, THEY both STINK, and ONLY you CAN change THEM” So as usual I don’t get too upset.

“YOU can’t be AFRAID of HEIGHTS to CLIMB the LADDER of SUCCESS” And some folks act like they ate LEAD, and can’t get off their ASS, I won’t name anybody, because They KNOW who they are!

“UNSOLICITED advice IS as WELCOME, as a Dallas DEADBEAT dad, ATTENDING his daughters DEBUTANTE dance”

“Don’t SHOOT your MOUTH off, WHEN your BRAIN is DRAWING blanks”

“a BAD attitude ENDS the FUN, causing EVERYBODY to RUN, I don’t JOG, so I will SIT like a BUMP on a LOG, and WAIT for YOU to CHANGE it”

I can make up a quote for ANY situation…

“SUCCESS is the DETERMINATION you HAVE for the JOURNEY, as WELL as the AMBITION it TAKES to MAKE the TRIP”

 “a JOURNEY without a DESTINATION is JUST a JOY ride, STAY focused ON your GOALS” Amen

I tell my grandchildren EVERY day…..

“NEVER gaze INTO the MIRROR, without APPRECIATING the VIEW, love YOURSELF first” They are my PRIDE and joy!

My favorite quotes are based on being BUSY…….

maryssa, makenna and maddie s

“Don’t CRITICIZE the YOUTH of TODAY, without REMEMBERING, the GENERATION that RAISED them” We are….”BUSIER than a CORNER pocket, OF a PROFESSIONAL pool TOURNAMENT table”

“BUSIER than a DALLAS department store, DURING the TEXAS tax FREE weekend”

“BUSIER than a BOTTLE of BEANO,  during THE annual CHILI cook OFF, in ORLANDO Florida, at FESTIVAL park”

“BUSIER than a BOOMTOWN bartender, ON a SINNERS Saturday NIGHT”

“BUSIER than the CARTOON character EMPLOYEES, aboard A destination DISNEYLAND cruise”

“BUSIER than a BEER maiden in MUNICH, during THE annual OKTOBERFEST celebration”

“BUSIER than a NARCISSIST, with a SELFIE stick, VISITING France, INSIDE the HALL of MIRRORS”

“BUSIER than PUMPKIN spice, in FALL”

“BUSIER than the DALLAS area transit AUTHORITY, during the TEXAS state FAIR and RODEO”

“BUSIER tha a TEENAGE babysitter, WITH a SET of THREE year old TRIPLETS, on a SATURDAY night, at SUPPER time”

“BUSIER than a MEXICAN restaurant, on TACO Tuesday” heck……..

“BUSIER than INDIO’S public PARK and RIDE lots, DURING the California COACHELLA festival”

“BUSIER than a BASS boat STUCK in MISSISSIPPI mud, DURING the ANNUAL anglers CATFISH competition”

“BUSIER than a FANS hand, WITH a FOAM finger, during THE fall FOOTBALL season”

maryssa, makenna and maddie

Both sets of THESE twins, have compensating personalities, so you see even though we are twins, we can really, never see “eye to eye” on too much!
My twin is FANCY, I ain’t, I am the hillbilly of this bunch. The little pawners? Makenna is exactly like my twin, Maryssa is just like ME! People always stop and stare then ask, are y’all twins? All of you? And yes we are.

#cindyism  “HAPPINESS isn’t ABOUT getting YOUR way every DAY, it’s about ENJOYING the JOURNEY, and being GRATEFUL for the TRIP” God bless us all

“We are BUSIER than a WATER hose, TRYING to FILL a RAT HOLE, or a ROPE at a RODEO, even BUSIER than a GARDEN rake, in FALL”

I generally make up BUSY quotes, USUALLY while doing NOTHING at ALL!

“BUSIER than a BULLDOG, guarding a SOUTH Texas SMOKEHOUSE, in the SUMMER”

“BUSIER than a BIKINI shop, IN the BAHAMAS, during spring BREAK”

“I am BUSIER than THE class CLOWN, at THE town CIRCUS, inside the FUN house”

“I am BUSIER than a RAT snake AT a chicken RANCH, inside the HEN house” Amen

wendy wortham and cindy daniel

Nothing is MORE funny than TWO sets of twins, ARGUING with each other! And it doesn’t occur that often, but it does happen!

maryssa, cindy, wendy and makenna

On occasion some folks and families have got into their own squabbles before the EVENT has even started! We do all kinds of events! From rent parties to estate liquidation, weddings, prison weddings and more! Sometimes when bartering items, folks like to THINK their JUNK is WORTH more, than it ACTUALLY is! My response? “IF the SALVATION army won’t PICK it up, WE won’t EITHER! Inlaws and outlaws are BASED on people we meet, EVERY day.

wendy wortham and cindy daniel

My name is Cindy Daniel, me and the little twins work with my twin sister Wendy Wortham at the pawning planners and Texas twins events we meet lots of folks, from the cream of the crop, to the bottom of the barrel.

Some folks are GENUINELY nice, while on Other occasions, we have met some UNFORGETTABLE folks as WELL

 …..”LIGHT may be FASTER than SOUND, until you LISTEN to some PEOPLE and REALIZE, their BULB ain’t been LIT, in a LONG time” God bless the REST of us.

And if folks think MY quotes are ABOUT them, they are PROBABLY right, because the GUILTY dog, BARKS first!

“PEOPLE with INITIATIVE are like YEAST in BREAD, they RISE to every OPPORTUNITY”

Dont be AFRAID to stand UP, for WHAT you BELIEVE in! Because…..

“You DONT have TO be a MATHEMATICIAN, to KNOW that, WALKING away from PROBLEMS, will NEVER solve ANY of THEM” However…..

“WITHOUT common SENSE, your WEALTH today, CAN become your POVERTY tomorrow”

“UNLESS you WORK at a WASHATERIA, leave YOUR dirty LAUNDRY at HOME, because NOBODY needs a STAINED reputation, at WORK”

“a BAD attitude, IS as WELCOME as a TWISTER at a TEXAS tailgate PARTY” and…..”a NEGATIVE attitude IS as USEFUL as a FREE self ESTEEM seminar, TO a NARCISSIST”

cindy daniel and wendy wortham

Travels of the Texas Twins documents the journey of two sets of texas twins and our hilarious adventures in the wedding and events industry coming soon to Amazon Kindle.

Boomerang Generation and ME, Six Females Fighting

I recently read an article about a woman who wrote about her son moving back home? ONE son? I was INSULTED! 

In my home I HAVE 2 adult children and 3 grandchildren, so I had to ask myself, what in the hell is SHE complaining about?!

In 1981 Temecula CA my husband had left me and my two children while visiting my twin sister, who lived in CA at the time. He called to “inform” me he wiped me out, on the visit that he had planned! I returned back to Texas, and yea he did.

With no alternative, I called my twin, she immediately flew down, took a taxi to me. He had taken BOTH cars, along with everything else. My twin got another taxi to Dallas, because I STILL had a set of car keys! And she took one of the cars and brought it back to me.

  
Meanwhile my grandmother lived up the street, I told her what happened, and she informed me to go beg for “forgiveness”? For what? I was a good wife and mother, while he had another family, for god knows how long! Me and Wendy packed food she had purchased along with diapers and some clothes, and we headed back to CA where I moved in with her until I could find and afford my own place.

  
I was naive, I received divorce papers by mail, and for some reason, child support was NOT included in the papers Larry Warren Mahaney had drawn up! Consequently I never received a penny.

  
I finally saved enough to get my OWN place, and while at school, my grandmother had arrived without notice OR an invitation, and the office gave her a key! Upon arriving home after picking up my kids from Wendy’s, she was there throwing ALL of MY belongings into the second bedroom, that was also the kids room. Had this happened to my sister she would have thrown her OUT! It was around 1981, and her “visit” would end up lasting another 17 years, of pure misery on my part, and of course I was STILL responsible for ALL the bills and FOOD!

  
People think I am funny, because of a quick whit, but that’s only to keep me sane. My entire family moved back to Texas around late 1983. We went to my cousins in Gordon and my kids went to school there, while once again I moved in with my twin to find work and a place to live. And just like CA when I did my grandmother took the master bedroom and I shared bunk beds with my children.

  
I eventually found my soulmate after being in a car accident, and having to learn to walk again. Gramma hated him. After one year of dating we married, and moved to a larger place. Gramma however screamed and yelled about the master bedroom, I screamed back because she could have easily afforded her OWN place, on social security and her deceased husbands civil service checks, but refused! When a family member is a squatter, good luck getting rid of them!

  
Eventually we moved to weatherford in a big house with a basement, and again she demanded the master bedroom, I refused! And she took BOTH remaining rooms upstairs and the hallway bathroom! Meanwhile my children lived in the basement, I begged for anybody to take her in over the years, nobody would, while my husband argued he paid for everything and we couldn’t even claim her on our taxes!

  
So as you can see boomerang anybody and they will NEVER leave. My husband refuses to repair anything, because he “thinks” it might make them stay longer. The lights over the garage have been out over a YEAR, so he left the Christmas fiesta lights in the bush? Fed up, I climbed a ladder and changed them myself! Our deck has been broken approx 10 years! Guess that’s go on for another ten!

Folks screaming they are on the phone in unison, check. Nobody cooking or cleaning exept ME, check. Guess I should be grateful the adult girls do wash their own clothes, however they REFUSE to bring them upstairs, causing a laundry traffic jam for ME, until I fold and bring them upstairs myself! 

My oldest daughter lived at home until she was 30 years old and got married. She came back after 8 months on a 1 way ticket and pregnant!

  
  

  
My youngest comes back and forth constantly, meanwhile I have been raising my grand twins, since their birth. 

SIX females FIGHTING over the WASHER, traffic jams at the BATHROOM’S, heck I know myself, have had to run outside behind the bushes, because at my age, can’t hold it too long anymore, but still, if you are reading this, you get it! The only break I get is running away from my own home, to my twins house.

Nobody gets along here either, the twins are jealous of the baby, leigh ann and stephaney can’t stand each other, and I have to be a referee, on a DAILY basis!

  
 So YES someone writing a book about one son? And complaining? Oh please, that’s like “Getting a free CAR, and COMPLAINING you have TO buy GAS, and PAY the INSURANCE” 

God bless us all

  
  
  
  

#cindyism “You can’t PROFIT from the HARVEST, if YOU don’t PLANT the CROP” #Thepawningplanners

  
Childhood memories don’t just happen, they are planned and executed, by the parents or grandparents. Usually, IE, me and my twin, for the little twins👯
So when I use my #cindyism….
“You can’t PROFIT from the HARVEST, if you don’t PLANT the CROP”

  
It can refer to almost ANYTHING, from working, to raising children, or planning a great adventure!

  
This month, we are headed out to Gordon Texas, population less than 478, The school teaches grades K-12. We are going to see our aunt and cousins, who we spent our summers and most of our lives with.

  
The older kids didn’t want to come, but with nothing else to do, reluctantly, are going to join us!

Caravans with TWO sets of twins are hilarious, because BOTH sets, have compensating personalities. 

  
My twin is kind of healthy food wise and so is Makenna, me and Maryssa, aren’t much into health guides, or stories, we could throw that book, in the TRASH! We don’t go to a buffet, and fill up on salad! But still, multigeneration twins, will always be, “tighter than a BRICK WALL or ROAD” (very close)

Everybody, around here, tries to be in charge of events, my advice is always…

“You CANT lead the CHUCK WAGON, if you DONT know how to COOK, uneducated ADVICE can CAUSE your POSSE to STARVE to DEATH” Amen

  
My twin always pays for everything, mainly because, she has the most money!

“I don’t EXPECT a LOBSTER dinner, on my CATFISH budget” other folks might lol!

  
Wendy does EVERYTHING on a schedule, and for some in the family, it’s not always so good, I won’t name any names, but one gal in particular, “acts like a SHINY new penny, when we ALL know, she’s been SPARE change, in so MANY hip pockets, ABES head, done turned into, a SHADOW” (she’s been around the block, and then some) she is LATE, to every scheduled event, because she HAS to be, the CENTER of attention! 

  
And if she isn’t that’s when she gets LIT, and I dish out more of my #cindyism
“This isn’t a RESERVATION, I ain’t a WOODEN INDIAN, so don’t expect me, to stand STILL, for YOUR WAR DANCE”

And……..”if you are gonna stand around CLUCKING, like the PRIZE HEN”, then I expect to see some EGGS hitting the FLOOR”

Which, as you can imagine, gets MY girdle popping! (Makes me mad) and wendy ain’t too happy about it, either! But, with family, “the DINNER, doesn’t ALWAYS, turn out, as planned” but MOST folks, including us, are gonna eat it anyway. (We put up, with it).

  
 But that doesn’t mean…..

“If somebody is going to be, “LOUDER than the MARCHING BAND in a PARADE, I aint gonna WALK with THEM” In fact, I will either WALK away, or give a BIGGER show, then OPENING day, at the STATE FAIR! 

  
My old man, is coming too, which always makes me laugh, mainly because, he NEVER knows, what’s going on, and is always afraid, about how much it will cost!

He is “TIGHTER than a CHAIN link fence Or BARBED wire” (cheap)

Sometimes he is “rougher, than SAND PAPER” (grouchy) but that’s ok, he’s old, and I can handle him. He gets WORSE, when around the entire family, and the”special” lady, “whose like a TEXAS tornado, a lot of THUNDER, with heavy WINDS, followed by, a TORRENTIAL downpour” and again, I won’t name anybody’s name, because, she knows who she is lol!
    

 I accept folks faults, mainly because I have several, of my own. And I would NEVER, “throw TRASH, over my NEIGHBORS fence, when I am living, at the DUMP” (be a hypocrite) You know what happens when you get a bunch of BIG personalities in one room? A Texas fuss, that’s what, and nobody ever wins, but it is fun to watch!
I don’t “kick a chair out for them, at my dinner table” they just, sit down, anyway! And listening to them, “hang THEIR laundry, on MY clothesline” (tell me their problems) is a card game, I would like to pass my hand on to ANYONE else to play. 

  
But then again, it’s family, and unlike a stranger, your kind of obliged to stay. “FAMILY is LIKE a POT luck DINNER, you don’t HAVE to LIKE everything they BRING to the TABLE, to APPRECIATE the MEAL”

I really am hoping today’s adventures don’t get out of hand, with “a SQUIRRELS buffet” (mixed nuts) all in one place!
This IS Texas, so they should ALL know….
“Don’t SHAKE the TREE, unless you are WILLING to EAT the FRUIT, that falls” (Don’t rattle my cage)
“My lighter, may be SHY on butane, but this old broad, has plenty of SPARK left”

And I am still…. “BUSIER than SAM the SINGLE man, AT a BOOMTOWN bar on NEW years EVE, during LADIES night, WITH his BEST friend STEVE” Amen

God bless us all folks!
