What a nice Surprise

Thanks Anni for this award and
your kind words
but mostly for your friendship.


Note To Self

Do NOT google for dream interpretations following an especially vivid nightmare in case the symbol interpretation on said website is more frightening than the actual dream.


Work Related: A Feel Good Note

I got the nicest thankyou note from a recently closed client.

They thanked me for helping with their new home purchase and relocation then said something no one has ever said to me before.

you have such a calming soul

Now this was pretty strange to hear, because I always feel like I am on the verge of freaking out trying to get my deals to the closing table.
It's nice to know I didn't show that side of me to the clients.

I doubt I will ever hear this compliment from a loan officer or title company though.

Nope, not likely

Sleepy Sunday

Rafe may be sleeping away his Sunday, but
Charley will be begging for treats over at
the Carnival of the Cats hosted this week
at one of our favorite blogs

Of course he'll follow that
with a nap of his own

Work Related: Sticking it Out

WELL.... I just paid my 2008 dues to the National Assoc of Realtors, the Texas Assoc of Realtors and the Houston Assoc of Realtors.

THEN.... also had to pay for another year subscription on my Lock Box Key and added the insurance for it just in case I drop the darn thing one too many times.

AND....I just finished an incredibly boring and expensive Property Management Class and to satisfy my 30 hours of mandatory continuing education so I could .....

ALSO..... pay the Texas Real Estate Commission to renew my license for another year.

NOW.....I haven't really had that bad of a year sales wise, but am still catching up paying off household deficits from last year which really sucked.

I'm looking forward to the fresh start, actually and appreciate the support I have gotten from friends and family.

SO....Thanks :)

Note To Self

Do not leave the Pounce Treats next to the Mrs. Dash.
The bottles are way to similar.

I'm so Blonde: and not very graceful either

So I am taking my walk and listening to Christmas music on the radio. My radio is kind of crappy and it only picks up a couple of channels but this is not about that.

Anyway, I stepped in a hole and went down like a ton of bricks. I didn't even realize I was falling until I was all the way down.
I scrapped up my ankle, and bruised my backside but otherwise seem to be OK.

Pushing 50 Grandmas should not be falling down like that.

We just don't heal so fast anymore.

Tummy Tuesday: Sleepy Charley

When Charley sleeps, he sleeps

Even Kate can not wake him up

sweet dreams purty boy

It's Tummy Tuesday
every Tuesday at
LisaViolet's Diary

I'm so Blonde: *sigh*

I put a meatloaf in the crockpot yesterday because I knew I would be out with clients most of the day. Before I left, I turned it on I thought I turned it on low but I turned the
knob the wrong way and left it at 400 degrees for 9 hours.

When I returned, the meatloaft was a yucky black brick
and worse......I have ruined my countertop.

Who-da thought a crockpot could do this much damage?

We are all Texans again!

The NJ branch of the family have successfully
moved all that stuff they have back down to
the Lone Star State where (imho) they belong.

Welcome BACK!!!
