oh no, my secret is out
June 21 - July 21
Just when you might have thought that the whole world was turning on you, dear Cancer, things are starting to come back around. You will find that you don't need to hide behind your shell. In fact, the more that you let your true spirit emerge, the more allies you will gain in your army. Your secret ambition to take over the world is becoming a much more attainable goal than you might have first thought.

thank God for weekends
friday, as i had already stated, was one of the worse days i have had for quite some time. it started to look up about 6:00 pm when my phone rang and it was my dinner date. now the original invite was for me to go to his house and he would be cooking dinner, however, i arrived at 7:30, was given a cocktail and asked where i wanted to go for dinner! we ended up going to bertolinni's. i felt like a princess because that is how he treats me (most of the time anyway). after dinner we returned to his house and watched the last of the yankee game. the cutest part was that he sat holding my hand.

saturday was, marketing, rolling and frying taquitos for kath's open house. i got to kath's just before 2:00 so i got to meet her friends from california that i have been hearing so much about. due to sheer exhaustion, i finally left and got home around 8:00pm. guess i left too early since i hear the party went till 2:00am! the highlight of my day was seeing my little girl so happy. i want to personally thank all of kath's friends for always being there for her.

sunday was for laundry and just lying around. i did manage to watch be cool, cute movie.

this morning wasn't bad enough?
i just faxed my cancellation to KB. that's right, it's official, i am not getting the house of my dreams. oh well, i paid $3,000 (my earnest money) for a cookie bouquet that i wouldn't even eat! i am sure that something even better will come along later since everything happens for a reason.

and speaking of for a reason.... i just got a call that my dinner date for tonight will probably not happen. why? because i am being kicked to the curb for a yankee game in california..........UGH MEN

worst friday
you know your day is going to be crappy when it's friday and you need to start off your day in a meeting with your regional director. it's even worse when you find out that you have to be at flamingo and swenson (clear across town) at 8:30am. well the meeting went pretty quickly and i was in my office around 10 only to find a notification from my home office that there is a death claim pending on one of my client's kids. i have been trying to contact this particular client for about 1 1/2 weeks. today i learn that his son died three days before his 20th birthday. all i could do was sit at my desk and cry.

i immediately again tried the telephone number that i have on file for the client so that i could give my condolences; no answer and no listing in the phone book for him or any of his family members. i called my home office only to find that they were notified of the death by the funeral home. i called the funeral home who, because of privacy laws, could only tell me that "services are pending at this time". i did get them to agree to take down my name and phone number and pass it on to the family.

i met this client about three years ago when he called me for life insurance quotes for his kids, he told me than that he was disabled but wanted to make sure that if anything ever happen that his children would get decent burials. the only thing i could say to him at the time was that he was a great father and i wrote the policies he asked for.

as i sit here at my desk crying again, i only wish that more parents would take the time to worry about the future.

not meant to be
after my house being on the market for four months it still has not sold which means that i can't buy my dream house. i have resigned to losing the money i put down on the new house and re-financing the house i am in. since i prematurely bought paint for the new house, i think that i will start painting the old one within the next few weeks. that may be a good way of drowning my sorrows!

it's funny how none of the homes in my community are being shown right now, i guess people just don't like to house shop in 120 degree heat. what's up with that?

on the bright side, my monthly house payment will go down and when it cools off later in the year i may try again. who knows, maybe i will find a house that i like even better.

every thing happens for a reason.

32 was GREAT
i had the greatest 32nd birthday (ha ha) ever! friday night i met kath, and a couple of my friends for happy hour at tgi fridays. they have the best appetizers and we tasted most of them! saturday was spent doing the regular homeowner chores until late afternoon, and then in the evening the birthday celebration began. sunday morning i went furniture shopping which is always fun and found a great sale at an oak furniture shop. later i went to kath's house. she made me a fabulous dinner complete with cake and ice cream. last night was spent just like saturday night, drinking wine and talking with a very special someone. i think that i can easily say that this was just about the best birthday a girl (or old woman) could have. thanks to everyone who called and sent cards.

i saw this and loved it...
"The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age."

this quote is from lucille ball, i just wonder how old she was when she said it.

i taught my mom to lie about her age when i got tired of hearing that she was going to be 39 AGAIN! the secret is to either add or multiply the two numbers of your real age. when mom turned 77, we told everyone she was 49 since 14 was definitely not believable.

well now it's my turn to lie about my age again...happy birthday to me on sunday as i will be 32.
