I'm here to stay! This is my home and I wouldn't live anywhere else but here!
Today is the middle of the first work week in 2009!  I bet you are wondering if I'm keeping up with my new goals....well I did kick off the week running!  I got 9+ miles in between Monday and Tuesday. Now I walk like I'm 800 years old.  Got over heated on Monday and had a headache all day.  Not h...
I'm going to start off by running a few miles at the YMCA tomorrow.  It's one of my new goals. However, I was actually busy this weekend running around and working!  I'm so excited about that.   I LOVE TO WORK! Here's what I want to know:  Who are THEY?  Have you heard "THEY" say we will have a t...
Today is the day to sit down and WRITE your goals for 2009.  I'm willing to bet that most of you have never tried this technique.  Would you believe that you have a much great chance to meet that goal just by writing it down.  Sharing your goal with someone also gives you a better chance to have ...
Do I have a deal for you!  I have a home listed in Janesville for $219,000 that sold in 2007 for $274,000. Is that a great deal or what???  It is truely amazing how much home you can get for your money!  If you have 5% down, your monthly payment could be as low as $1250 per month.  My goodness.  ...
Good bye and Thanks.... This is the headline for the local newspaper. Today was the day.  The last official day of employment for so many people in our community. I know it had to be an emotional day for those folks wondering what will happen next. The news crews were there from all around giving...
Tonight as I watch the Packer/Bear game I wonder how everyone will do tomorrow.  It sounds like it will be a very emotional day for those who will go in to work for the last time. If you happen upon this blog and want to give us an idea of how you are doing, many would love to get your perspectiv...
This coming week, December 23, 2008 will be a date in history for our area.  It is the official closing of the GM Plant in Janesville, WI.  This plant has been a huge part of the lives of many in our area for 100 years.  We are now going to be heading into uncharted territory.  What is it going t...
I just want to say that the media has totally got the world by the ear (or other body part, your choice). Yes, I would like to make it through the day without feeling like the sky is falling, without hearing that the sky is falling (and how quick). Did you know that consumers are calling to inqui...
Our area has been hit this year with several disasters.  We got the announcement that the plant would close in 2010 sometime in May.  Then we lived through a devastating flood that consumed a large part of our city and county.  In late summer, the GM announcement came that the closing would be mo...
Would you believe I had a closing this week with a buyer who never physically looked at the inside of the home? Huh? This buyer had been in an accident and was physically disabled.  She was unable to get inside the house. Her husband went through and said it looked exactly like the virtual tour t...
