good to be back....

It's been far, far too long since I've written. It's not fair to say "I've been so busy", because the truth of the matter isn't that I've been too busy, but rather, just haven't had much to say. Yes, me, the one who never shuts up. I guess, I just haven't had very many coherent thoughts...or at least thoughts that I felt I should share with people.

It's been a rough sort of week for me, professionally speaking. Someone who was a friend of mine actually fired me as their agent! And then turned around and put an offer on a house within 24 hours. The kicker of it was his excuse "God told me it was time for a change". PUHLEEZE. At first I was double ticked. Still am, really, because that's just not the way you treat people. Especially when I've been "helping" he and his wife since before Thanksgiving.

They changed their minds on what they wanted every other day. They changed the locations, the age, etc., kind of the important things that help a Realtor know where to look. AND, when we'd find something that they liked, he'd put in ridiculously low offers. So, to say that I was getting frustrated with him, is just the tip of the ice berg, so I guess it's a blessing in disguise.

I attended a commercial real estate investing seminar in Orlando and learned so much that my brain is still trying to hold in all the information. There are a lot of conflicting thoughts in there, fighting for space. You know, movie quotes, phone numbers of old friends and boyfriends from high school and what the names of the American Idol contestants are. So, it's been a bit tricky putting this new info into motion. Becuase of that event, my father and I have started a new company. We're partners and I'm very excited about it. Praying that we can get it launched successfully. We have three agents in multiple states looking for property for us. So, we shall see.

AND, yesterday, I got my hair chopped off. It's a very short bob, slight stacking in the back with bangs! I haven't had bangs in forever. I don't think hubcaps is all that thrilled with it, but it was time for a change. Besides, it's just hair. It grows back and if it looks really bad? I'll do what I've been doing. I'll wear a hat.

Oh, and the kids!! Princess K is addicted to High School Musical 2 - and might I add, so is mom...we sing and dance all the moves. Little Prince is smelling his hands all the time. I think he might be OCD. Driving me crazy, but he's such a sweet boy.

I've missed hearing from and reading all of you, my blogger friends. I will be catching up over the next couple of days!
So good to be back!

YEAH !!! she's back....
so good to 'read' from you again.

Shitty about your sudo friend, but like you said it was probably a blessing in disguise.

Good luck with the business venture... keep us updated.

After readong your sory about your "friends", the first thing that popped into my head was Hermie (from the "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" Christmas special) singing "You can't fire me, I quit!"

Glad to have you baaaaaaack! I've been checking in regularly, waiting patiently!

That sucks about your supposed "friend" but at least you and your dad are starting your own business!

And post a pic of your new bob! I love to see new haircuts!
