NOAH I need your ark!
It doesn't rain very often in Las Vegas but when it does watch out! I went to leave the house this morning and was all of three blocks away when I ran into my first flooded street. Of course it was even worse once I was able to get out of my housing community. The main road (three lanes going each way) has one lane open. That's correct, the two right hand lanes were completely flooded and water was over the sidewalk! Since it is supposed to rain all day, I may need to swim home tonight.

What's wrong with our mirrors?
Why is it that when we look in a mirror we do not see ourselves the same way as others do? I started wondering this after a call from Kathryn this morning. Everyone who meets her says she is beautiful, I know she is beautiful inside and out (but then again I am her mom and my opinion, in her eyes, doesn't count). Why is she so surprised when a man is interested in her and wants to take her out on a date? Why do we never see beauty in ourselves? I don't think it is egotistical in any way to think you are pretty or look exceptionally good (or "HOT" as Kath would say) on any given day. Come on, feel good about yourself and know that you are pretty and that guys do notice!

I'm the luckiest mom in the world
Yes, it's true, I am the luckiest mom in the world. Today on Kathryn wrote about going out with one of her best friends on Friday night....check the link...she was talking about me! Now, as a mom I have always enjoyed spending time with my daughter but the older that we both get the more I enjoy it. Whether it's just talking on the phone, going to lunch or shopping, or one of our favorites...going to happy hour. It is so nice to know that a daughter can be a best friend and that a mom and a daughter can also share friends.

Stupid, stupid, stupid
I am constantly amazed (and pissed) that some people never learn. At least 2 or 3 times per week, the same agent comes and asks me a really stupid question. This agent has worked in this office for over five years using the same damned soft ware and still has trouble with it! Now 2 or 3 questions may not seem like a lot, but he also goes to other people to ask questions all week long. Is it the male mentality? Do we need to write a how to book for him? Naw, that wouldn't work, he wouldn't understand what he was reading!

Look in a mirror before you leave the house
I was on my way to work this morning and while stopped in traffic I saw a pretty young woman walking down the street. She was wearing a long skirt with multiple shades of purple which was gorgeous, until I noticed brown clogs and white sweat socks! No, she was not carrying anything, so apparently she was going to be dressed that way all day.

Wow how time flies
It's been days since I blogged last, I have been so busy that there just has not been any available time. Last week was filled with seminars and some very important appointments with a couple of "big fish". Big fish is what we call a client who either owns his own company or is far up the corporate ladder; these people usually have alot of money to invest in tax free retirement vehicles which I just happen to sell! All 5 days were very long and exhausting but that is a good thing.

The weekend was for relaxing, and thanks to Kath I saw two great movies...Ray and Shall We Dance. Watching Richard Gere and Jennifer Lopez floating across the floor made me want to run out and sign up for dance lessons! Maybe I will put that on my to do list for later this year.
