Historic Downtown Charleston

Lucas and I stayed an extra day at the CCSA Convention in order to see Historic Downtown Charleston.  A bus ride from the hotel was provided and there were two busses with about 50 people on each bus.  So 100 of our good friends from other studios all over the world.  It was a ton of fun and I enjoyed the building architecture.  Big surprise there, right?

Boston Street Building Reno – Wall Removal

My son and I decided to take down the wall in the tenant space this morning.  It has been something we have been needing to do, and now that we are getting closer to really pushing for a tenant in that space, it was time we did it.  It only took a couple hours to accomplish, but was quite messy.

Tool Concert – Talking Stick Resort

Went to see Tool with Greg tonight…

Bare Naked Ladies – If I Had A Million Dollars

Risa just jokingly referenced the “but not a real green dress…that’s cruel” line from the song by Bare Naked Ladies – If I Had A Million Dollars.  What a great moment to see her remembering something so fun that used to be such a big part of her joking side prior to the accident.  Mom and I love to see these small moments of victory and hints of the girl we know showing through the brain injury!

Charlie Waiting For Me

Each day when I come home, my 13 year old dog, Charlie, is so happy to see me. After I leave for work each morning, he patiently waits by the garage door for my return. Mom has been sending me photos of him waiting by the door for me to come back. One is from yesterday and one from today. Love him!

Real Estate License – Achieved!

I finally have my Real Estate license. It was approved by the department this morning and I paid my fees. Now to choose a brokerage to hang my license without too much in monthly fees so that I can get my MLS subscription and start really working my future investments!

Oh, no, not kittens!

Lucas brought a kitten home recently with the “can I keep her?” Smile on his face, and apparently, that kitten was already pregnant when he got her as she had babies today…this is the news I came home to after work! Ugh. Not quite what I anticipated for this evening.

Great Quote from Under The Tuscan Sun

On A Gondola

Had a great first date tonight.  I have been talking with this man for a few weeks on the phone and we finally met in person tonight.  It was a wonderful night starting with meeting in Downtown Chandler at San Tan Brewery, a tour of the Downtown Chandler Square, and then a drive to a resort hotel in Scottsdale for an exclusive sushi dinner, and then a walk around the property and a surprise Gondola ride!  He is very sweet and we had a fantastic time.  He seems to be very adventurous and spontaneous, not to mention tall and handsome!!  Let’s see where it goes.  His name is John.

Strong Enough – Sheryl Crow

Out of the blue, I get a talk from the guy that I have been involved with for the last 14 months, after we spend most of that time planning our future together, and four months before he moves out here, he suddenly determines that he may not be able to handle all that comes with moving out here and he isn’t sure he can be with such a strong and independent person.  Blah!  Here is the theme song of the day.

God, I feel like hell tonight
Tears of rage I cannot fight
I’d be the last to help you understand
Are you strong enough to be my man?

Nothing’s true and nothing’s right
So let me be alone tonight
Cause you can’t change the way I am
Are you strong enough to be my man?

Lie to me
I promise I’ll believe
Lie to me
But please don’t leave

I have a face I cannot show
I make the rules up as I go
It’s try and love me if you can
Are you strong enough to be my man?

When I’ve shown you that I just don’t care
When I’m throwing punches in the air
When I’m broken down and I can’t stand
Will you be strong enough to be my man?

Lie to me
I promise I’ll believe
Lie to me
But please don’t leave
