Mona's Real Estate Matters and a Myriad of Other Conversations

A Life of Its Own...Blogging Carries On - Who Knew?!?

I said to myself, "Self, they're all going to forget about you if you don't get back to ActiveRain.  All that great discipline you taught yourself when you were active is all just going to fizzle away.  What the hell's the matter with you?".


The reality is that I've been thinking about blog fodder on an almost daily basis now for months. Months! Blah, blah, many inconsequential excuses for not getting back on the horse.  Anyway, the topic I'd chosen to write about isn't the one I'm writing about today!  I signed back in, fully expecting to have to produce 3 forms of identification and present a note from my mother but that wasn't the case at all.


Here I sit at the computer just like before, next to the sliding glass doors looking at the dogs and the mountain view wondering if I will figure out the new (to me) format and questioning if anyone will read me again!  Color me beyond humbled that in my hiatus there have been people following, reading and commenting on my posts from before slacker status gripped me with its incapacitating grip.


How rude must everyone think I've become!  I haven't thanked followers, answered questions or replied to comments in a ridiculously long time.  Mea culpa for sure and I am so sorry.


I still keep a link to ActiveRain in my email signature that clients tell me doesn't work. Obviously, I am in bad need of a little remedial AR University training as well as some mentoring from my friends and #Bob Stewart.  No doubt his baby is in his senior year of high school by now!


Here's me committing to myself to getting back to what I truly have missed, writing relevant and irrelevant content on a regular basis. Talk with you soon!

Oh! How I Hate to Get Up in the Morning… Gain an Hour, Right!
Dogs could care less about the so called Daylight Savings Time change. Five years ago I was getting up at 5:30 every morning to take care of dogs and had been for 20 some years. Then it creeped to 6:15, then to 6:30, then 7:00 and most recently… more

Coffee Helps… Creating Order from Chaos in the Kitchen
Let's be clear, my spice cabinet wasn't quite like this. For one thing, I have three times as many spices and a larger shelf. Actually, they were even alphabetized on little elevated shelves. Still though, pretty much every time I reached for… more

Time is Tight for Monday Melodies
Some weeks, it seems that there is plenty of time to book everything I need to and no big deal if someone is late or grrrrrr a no show but not so much this week. Everyday I will have a couple of written in stone events to attend and they aren't all… more
Mr. "Sure, I'll Meet You at the Office" Never Showed Up
Honestly I feel pretty safe in what I do for a living and rarely get any twinges or spidey senses going off indicating possibly danger or harm. Thankfully, those feelings are well tuned however if someone isn't serious about a purchase or sale of… more
