What to Do in Texas: Summer Fun for the Family - 04/26/08 07:58 PM
It wasn't until I became a real estate agent that the value of time off became important to me. Don't get me wrong, I love what I do but when you start a real estate career while in the midst of a professional accounting career you've just signed up for some never-ending days. This year I plan to take at least two REAL vacations and maybe a couple of weekend getaways. With Spring break behind us I have been thinking of some really cool ways to spend the summer without leaving Texas. This list is by no means all inclusive but (0 comments)

Whether your search is for a single family home, townhome or condo I can assist you. If you've ever wondered about working with a REALTOR to find a rental property please read the answers to the following frequently asked questions. Why should I use a REALTOR when I can look in the newspaper or drive around to find my own place to rent? Searching newspapers, Internet ads, or "drive-bys" are certainly ways to find a (0 comments)
What are Your ActiveRain Assoicates Saying About You? - 04/16/08 11:28 AM
I was recently called a "turtle brain" and for good reason. Not by anyone on ActiveRain but by a very dear friend. I am sometimes so consumed with what I am doing that the wheels in my brain turn at a turtle's pace. (This looks like the opening to a whole new post). I said that to say that I am probably the last one look at this but it is interesting still. Have you ever looked at your AR Associations? You know, the section that tells you who has added you as an associate. I've been there before but I never (3 comments)
Soap Operas Were NOT Meant to be Single Episodes... - 04/14/08 03:02 PM
...and neither should your blog or website. Many, many years ago a male friend made a comment to me that made me stop watching daytime soap operas. At the time he was a pharmacy student and I was a very young (recently separated) single mom of two. He said that watching so operas was total waste of time and that people (like me) could be doing something a lot more productive with their time. Although I could have, I didn't take it as an insult. I saw some truth in those words and I stopped watching soap operas and spent more time (12 comments)
Settling in After the Move: Finding Quality Childcare in Texas - 04/11/08 03:45 PM
Moving to a new area with children is hectic enough without adding the stress of worrying about finding quality child care. Whether moving to a new state, city, or neighborhood if both parents work outside the home you will need to find a new child care provider. Your childcare options might include a registered/licensed family childcare provider, licensed childcare center, or a private in-home provider (nanny). Your choice will be based on your family's goals and needs for your children. In making your decision you may consider the following: Registered Family Child Care Home- Caregivers provide regular care in their own home for (0 comments)

Dear Boss...I QUIT! - 04/01/08 09:20 AM
"Dear Boss, I have been struggling with this decision for some time now. This month's close confirms that I am making the best decision for my family. I have decided that it is in my best interest and that of the company for me to resign effective March 31, 2008 or when you are able to find a replacement, whichever is sooner... I have stretched myself way too thin by accepting a full-time position. I have the heart of an entrepreneur and would never be able to commit 100% to the role of an employee. I am willing to do what I can (26 comments)
