Dear Anonymous

I finally gave up and deleted that old Wendy's post from May of 2006 that you insist on rudely commenting on over and over and over.
Now please get the hell out of my blog.

Work Related: End of the year

What I thought was going to be a really tough year was really tough but still I was able to sell 3 more homes than last year.
Also I just completed a financing course that puts me 30 hours closer to my brokers liscense.
Next year will be no piece of cake with FHA tightening up lending requirements again. But hopefully with some extra effort, it will be all OK.
I'm ready for 2010!

Shopping: Shoes

I thought these were so cool, but I tried some on and
they feel really odd.
I'm not sure I can invest 100 bucks on odd, even if they
do look pretty cool.

After Ike: Cantina Update

A couple of people have asked how the post Ike remodel is coming
So here you go....

I found this in San Antonio last weekend

This fireplace is our latest addtion. It puts out
quite a bit of heat for a fake one.

The entertainment area is coming along nicely but
we hope we never have to carry all this stuff

What's a fireplace photo without a cat.
Yes, that is the baby..he is really growing!

That's it so far!

I'm so blonde

We had a wonderful holiday, in fact it was so fun we forgot to take any pictures.
I did take a few when we stopped in San Antonio on the way home, like I have no pictures from there...sigh.

Bad Kitty: RicoLoco

I'm not sure how he gets his fat butt up there but about the third time he cleaned off the shelf to make room for said butt, I just gave up and took down a bunch of my stuff.

After Ike: Hurricane Ida

Even though Ida poses no real threat to the Texas coast, just seeing the "I" storm form so late in the season is a little unnerving.

On the Canal: Mosquitoes!

The mosquito killer truck finally showed up last night after what seems like all summer and now the mosquitoes are swarming us even worse than ever.

I had to run to my car this morning or be devoured.

Now I am wondering, what did they feed them?
Sugar water?
