I thought I'd chip in with a little commentary to get this forum revved back up again. Here's a recap of recent news events in my life...
I dropped my real estate license and returned full-time to my pet-sitting service at the beginning of the year. I actually make money now for all the hard work I put in!!! It's a nice change considering my last real estate closing was in 2008. Do you know how hard it is to live on air and Ramen noodles?!
I spent 3 1/2 glorious days in San Francisco with a side trip to the Muir Woods. My singer friend put me on the guest list for three of her shows at the Rrazz Room in the Hotel Nikko. I was literally with the band. :o)
I'm working a few hours every month at a really cool artists' shop in a far north neighborhood. Hand-made clothing, jewelry, photographs, paintings, handbags, shoes. I pretty much spend my salary on merchandise. lol So far I've brought home a $20 party dress, a very bling-y ring and a silk hat. I've got my eye on a necklace made of stone-a (apologies to Steve Martin lol) with pearls interspersed between the stones. 60% off regular price. I made a bargain with myself: if it's still there when I go in Tuesday, I'll buy it. lol
And tonight is the really, REALLY big news. I am the subject of a in-home interview to determine if I would be a suitable adoptive "mom" for an Italian Greyhound rescue named Charlotte. I've already filled out a 12-page application form which was reviewed by Charlotte's current foster mom. So...fingers crossed, this in-home visit is merely a formality and Charlotte will be in her forever home within the week!
So that's me. And you?
