Well on Saturday I wrote six pages. On Sunday I deleted them all.
All in all it was a pretty good weekend.
And this week I spun about as a Real Estate Agent.
I would never have known lis pendens from an appendix had I not taken a Real Estate course. Daughter number two said lis pendens sounded like a body part. (It means "suit pending" the most common is the notice served beginning a foreclosure procedure.)
My Real Estate license is now parked with the state--that is I am not associated with any agency and thus I have lost my lofty title REALTOR. I read a quote by Billy Crystal, "I learned over the years that if you're not happy doing what you're doing, then you shouldn't be doing it." that pretty much sums up my relationship in being an agent. I have not, however, given up on houses...I've just taken another avenue--a service organization. How about Mammoth Solutions as a name?
Driving to our house the other day I saw a cute little Smart car in a car lot and thought, wouldn't that look cute wrapped with a giant mammoth logo? First I have to make enough money to buy the car.
Here is an example of the feeling a person gets when doing what they love. Daughter number one's counselor asked her what she was doing for herself--that was on top of working plus caring for her son, husband and house. "Oh," she said, "taking walks, soaking in the tub, but afterword I feel just just as exhausted as before." The counselor said, "What about your art?"
Daughter awakened the next morning raring to sculpt. Thus this carved avocado pit. And it put a smile on her face too.
Now I am wondering how in the world she held that slippery pit. I'll ask. I know she peeled off the pit's brown thin film revealing a white pit beneath. The white turns this coppery color after being exposed to air.
If we were to talk about juxtapositions Daughter number one and I would be a great example. While she is into preparing food--and photographing it, I get out of cooking every chance I can.
Finally before I sail off into the blue, I am offering, for a limited time, a FREE ebook, Mother's Letters...and mine. This book is not for everybody, but it will be for somebody. Are you one of those bodies? To determine if you are check out:
