It is official! We signed the closing papers today. Our investment property has been sold. I feel like Donald Trump only I wish I made his salary or even just 10% his salary.

We currently live in a town house in Tamarac. We purchased land and built a home in Cape Coral (just sold), and we also purchased a pre-construction town house just opposite the one we live in now (not done yet). We are trying to sell the town house we live in now. Any takers?

Our new town home, the one currently being built is almost done. They got the roof tiles in and they are working hard. They started planting trees and doing the rest of the beautification part. It will be so nice living in a new house, new appliances, new bath tubs, new everything. I won't have to clean anything before we move in. How sweet is that?!? We get to go furniture shopping too! Woo-hoo!

Before I go to celebrate today's closing, let me leave you with a proverb:
A fish rots from the head down.

I regret not going to my Aunt's funeral. I was thirteen and was told I shouldn't go.

I regret losing my virginity on a drunken high night.

I regret not spending more time with my first love before he left for college. I wonder what he's up to now.

I regret not letting go sooner. I've lost some friends being so damn stubborn and unforgiving.

I regret not leaving Florida for College.

I regret not begging for forgiveness later rather than asking for permission and being refused.

I regret not articulating my opinions about religion to my family from the beginning.

I regret having feared my Father when I was younger.

But if I lived my life differently I would not be where I am today. And I love my life! But I will put my regrets behind me and live my life for today.

Before I go, let me leave you with a quote from Kenny Chesney:
"Regrets. In a way, they define us those things we wish we'd done differently. They can be small things that seemed scary at the time like skinny-dipping with the girl you really liked, or standing up to a bully or something that didn't seem to matter that made all the difference in the world, whether it's spending more time with a parent before they're gone or giving in for someone you love. Anyone who says they have no regrets isn't human. To me, this song embraces it and reminds me to live every day so my regrets are all, or mostly, behind me. If you can do that, then you have a pretty good game plan for living your life."

My American Dream

Why is everyone moving to North Carolina?

I first wanted to move to North Carolina for College, but never quite made it further than Broward County. Toni, Kristen, Burak, and Michael all moved to NC. Lauren, Will, Dave, and Mike are all contemplating the move to NC.

And as for me:

The road will lead us somewhere. It might not be soon, but one day...I will live in a small house on a huge land, where the closest neighbor is a drive away. The grocery store is in town at least 20 minutes away, oh and it's called a town, not a city. The shops are not commercialized. No McDonalds or Burger King. Life is Pure, Life is Simple! This is me!

I love the country, not the city. I'm a home girl, not a party girl. I love greenery and land, not the zero lot lines. I love neighbors from a distant, not through my window. I love quaint hometown shops, not the GAP. I love mom and pop Italian Restaurants, not the Olive Garden. I love the bars, not the hip-hop night clubs. I love the sounds of nature, not sirens and horns. I just need to get where I'm going. This is me!

Before I go, let me leave you with one thought:
We all can find something in common within each of us, even if our differences encompass:
Skin Color

ALL OF US are the same.
Ignorance is the root of all evil.

Anyone Buying?

And so the pendulum swings the other's now a buyer's market. So if it's called a buyers market, where are the buyers? We're trying to sell our townhouse, but we aren't even getting any nibbles.

Unfortunately, we need to sell our house, since we are moving into another one (hopefully by next month). There are probably a dozen other town homes for sale in our complex. Will we sell on time and for our bottom line??? Only time will tell.

As for our real-estate investment, we finally closed on our house (in Cape Coral), and now we are working on selling the house. We have a contract already and we're hoping to close this week. This $$$ will help go towards the next casa and so forth.

And hopefully we will be able to afford our dream house here in South Florida I'm sure there will be a lot of foreclosures by then. If not, we're moving outta here somewhere where we can afford to live (another topic for another blog).

Before I go, let me leave you with one question:
How long do you wait before honking at the car in front of you when the light turns green?

How Rude!

Today's shopping experience at Sawgrass, Target, and Publix. Let me add, I walk the aisles with a wide load stroller, whose wheels have a mind of their own.

First off, why is it that you think you can just stop in the middle of the aisles and not be considerate of others who are trying to go by? Do you think you walk this earth alone?

Do you pretend not to hear me when I say excuse me or are you just trying to be a rude bitch?

For the worker at Target who was pushing a wide flat bed cart. What made you think to stop the wide flat bed cart right in FRONT of me to help someone who was 2 aisles behind me. Did you not see me???? The stroller is not invisible. You must have thought I had super powers and would be able to get by the wide flat bed cart. Thanks for making me go around the entire aisle!

And you: I'm sorry, did you not see me there in the lane next to you? I'm only driving a big SUV! Oh and I see your blinkers must not be working either? Do you actually think your car is the only one on this road? I know it's Sunday morning, but really?

Lastly, to the lady that sold me my hot dog today. Are you a moron? You sell me a hotdog and fail to mention you are out of ketchup! But you can't wait to mention after the fact that you have mustard and mayonnaise. Mayonnaise????

I'm not saying I'm perfect. All I'm saying is that we live in such a fast pace society where people are in such a rush they forget that other people around them are in a rush too! MOVE!!!!!

Before I go, let me leave you with one thought:
What goes around comes around so be nice to your neighbor (and mothers with strollers)!


When I first contemplated joining myspace, it was because of a friend in Spain (Shout out to Ali)! After talking to some friends, they said it's fun, addictive, and you reunite with some old friends. So I joined and quickly concluded that this wasn't for me. I think I said something like "I can see myself easily getting away from this!" And here I am now ADDICTED to myspace.

I love decorating my page, showing off pictures of my family, sending out cool comments, and now blogging. And I've reunited with some old friends (Shout out to Jamie)! I love mypsace!

Are you addicted?

Before I go, let me leave you with one thought:
Why is it drug addicts and computer aficionados are both called users?

I'm N Luv

So everyone in the house is sleeping, but me. Have you ever been so tired that you can't sleep. Welcome to my world! Mathew went to sleep tonight at 7pm without a feeding...which only means he will be up for at least 2 night time feedings. Oh well!

We went to mommy and me class today. Mathew loves class! But his teeth are breaking through so lately he is just fussy, fussy, fussy! And even still, he is such a good baby. I am so blessed. I do get frustrated at times, and just one look at his face melts it all away. I love him so! Everything in my life is nothing compared to him and my family. What an amazing feeling?!?! Okay that's WAY too much mooshy...sorry...I promise future blogs won't be only about Mathew nor this mooshy. Stay tuned...I just have to shake my creative juices a bit - they've been sitting at the bottom for a while.

Before I go, let me leave you with on thought:
The only time cellulite is cute is on a baby's butt! Too bad I'm not a baby anymore.

Sleep Deprived

Those of you that know me, know that I love to "express myself." I express even when I'm not being heard. I express more than I should at times. Some could say I love to talk! me? no! Blog - my new outlet, whether anyone is out there or not!

I'm a new mom with a major need of a 24 hour sleep-athon. The advice given to new moms is to sleep when the baby sleeps. As most new parents realize, that's not feasible. You need to do laundry, dishes, clean, work, and now blogging, while the little one is napping. When you do finally hit the bed at night, it's never solid sleep. I always feel like I have one eye and one ear functioning while I sleep. I also have to wake up once or tiwce in the middle of the night to feed the crying baby. When will it end?!?!

Before I go, let me leave you with one thought from a dark and cynical poet (one of my favorites):
"Is all that we see or seem but a dream within a dream?" -Edgar Allan Poe

To Blog or Not to Blog?

So I've been wanting to do this "blog" thing for a while now, but I wonder if anyone really cares what I write. So I'll start this blog and see how it goes. I'll write about whatever! Please share with me your thoughts. Then I will decide: To Blog or Not to Blog?

Today I'm working from the office and it's a slow day! The weather is cloudy and grey, which fits the mood here...slow and boring.

Right now, I need to deplete my breast resources. sorry if TMI.

Before I go, let me leave you with one thought:
Rather than asking yourself what is the purpose of life, ask yourself what purposes define your life?
