Reality Update

Gone are my days of the land of beer, brats, and cheese.

Now my days are spent (mostly) in the land of sun, palm trees, and fake people.

Oy vey!

Surprisingly, I don't see as many 'fake people' in my everyday path. I've either become immune to seeing them everywhere or I've got a pretty esablished safe daily routine. Either way, I'll take the sun and palm trees.

We're sticking in the trailer for a few more months, while the real estate market in South Florida continues to sink. Mortgage brokers have encouraged us to stick it out, and that's what we're doing. There are a few properties in Boca that we've spotted that meet our criteria (location, 3/2 with garage and a yard for the fur-babies) and the prices keep getting lower and lower. They'll eventually hit our price range, I'm sure.

In the meantime, I'm happily enjoying my days feeling like a student again. I'm in a weekly sales class and women's bible study. Hours upon hours of reading assignments yesterday, but all for edification.

I'm starting to get the 'itch'...that inevitable late-twenties, married five years next month, ready to settle down thing. Need to stave it off at least until we're on solid ground in a house. I keep having nightmare visions of morning sickness in our port-a-potty set-up and it aint pretty.

Work is ticking along at a comfortable pace. Although I don't travel regularly for my job, I've been able to get back to the midwest a few times this summer for conferences and was able to extend the stay long enough to spend good time with family and friends. I can't believe that 2008 is just around the corner!

OK, it's the last week of the month and so I really need to get back on the phone and close some business this week.
