1. Like the little personalized celebratory header :) on my page!
2. With the warmer weather today, I'm trying out some new metallic flats (no trouser socks!)
3. My sister officially asked me to be a bridemaid yesterday, so exicted to be in her wedding-I also like her colors, so I won't be stuck with a horribly-colored dress for my pasty complextion. Will probably do a spray tan anyways, I did that for the last wedding I was in and it worked out nicely. Yes, fb friends, that profile picture of me, I have a spray tan in it.
4. Some one just gave me the brush-off, but I ignored it and smiled like a champ-won't let that ruin my day
5. Can you tell I'm in a bbetter mood today ;)?

1. 10am "informal" tax assessment review meeting. Went well, hard for them to argue there are improvements to assess when it's a vacant lot!
2. Got a little pissy with the community organizing team about not getting the bagged trash out of the community playground that have been sitting there for 3 months. I told them to call X in Sanitation for a pickup or cart it down the street to my residential property the night before garbage day....and clean the new trash up too while you are at it!
3. My NSP compliance reports are nearly done. Snooze fest.
4. Almost finished with one of my new construction projects, maybe 10 days of work left.
5. My boss is vacillating between being disengaged and micromanaging. Guess which one I prefer?

If I'd known there was such a thing, I would gotten an agent. No foresight, I guess.

1. I wish we could get rid of our rental house.
2. I rest a little easier knowing we were able to buy a second house in case we need to take drastic measures with the first.
3. At this point, I don't think a short sale would even work on the rental house based on the tax implications and what we need.
4. I don't think I could morally do a strategic foreclosure.
5. I guess we're stuck with it for now.

1. I had a great idea for dinner, but it seems that there's no puff pastry in the freezer.

1. Many city employees are incompetent. 2+2=4, 4-1=3
2. I picked up 3 large bags of trash from one of my vacant lots. I don't get paid enough.
3. Too many people have called me today.
4. I missed the marketing webinar. I guess that's ok since I don't have speakers for the PC and have to read the slides.
5. I really need a new job in a lower cost of living area.
