Not Another MEME! 7 Things you may not know about ME

Real Estate Broker/Owner with LKN Realty, LLC 242267


Zach hanging out

Thanks to Terry Westbrook I have found myself once again trying to think of clever or shocking this to share about myself with you.  I must admit I already covered a lot of it: My MEME is all over the map!

Well, here goes:

Seven things you may not know about....Diane Aurit

  1. My daughter is my soul mate.  We have an incredible closeness that is hard to explain and it's been this way since birth.
  2. I love cats, all cats.  We have 5, 4 of which are Bengals which is a man-created breed using an Asian Leopard cat and a domestic cat.  They are so cool.  Zach, above, weights about 20 pounds and he is not quite a year old.
  3. I almost didn't continue my real estate career when we moved to Lake Norman NC in 2005.  I really wanted to work in the non-profit sector but realized I was better at making money in real estate and volunteering my time.  I dreaded going back to the basics, starting over.  It wasn't until I discovered blogging that I started to enjoy real estate again.
  4. I am a bit OCD...I used to be worse.  I am extremely organized and if I had time would have everything around me perfectly clean etc.  I have let go of this a bit over the years.
  5. My mood is greatly impacted by the weather.  I thrive on a sunny day but too many rainy days takes away my energy.
  6. I do my best thinking while gardening or better yet while at the beach looking out at the ocean.  I love my garden here but do miss the ocean quite a bit.  I used to roller blade in the mornings on the beach in Santa always lifted my spirits and it was so much fun skating fast...such a high!
  7. Okay, this one is truly embarrassing...I have quite a Beanie Baby Collection:(.  My son worked at a toy store during their peak and I thought they were a great investment...anyone want a 3rd Generation Teddy Bear?

Okay, that's it for now.

Since I don't know who hasn't done one of these MEME' of you please go ahead and accept my invitation to write one!

I enjoyed this and can relate to the weather!  Its been really nice...and so have I...I've been a bit under the weather emotionally and I do blame it on the cold!  Diane I just wanted to thank you for being so supportive throughout the year and wishing you and yours a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!

Two things, if affected by bad weather, don't move to Oregon and the other is a Beanie Baby collection? Maybe you can give away a few as closing gifts, so you can get your house back.

Great MeMe though, we did certainly learn some new things about you that we didn't know and that is what the MeMe is all about.

Looks like you had a blast writing this one.

I love the cats. I am a cat lover and own none, my husband in highly allergic to them. So, I just pet the neighbors cats.

Hi Diane...Glad I saw this.  It was a fun read and now we know seven more things about you.

It also reminded me that I had been tagged (twice) recently and need to do another one.

Happy New Year and I'm so glad I've "met" you.  You are one of my raindrops.

Diane, Enjoyed getting to know you better. Like you, I am very weather sensitive. Livng in NC is sooo much better than my previous Norteastern abodes. So glad you decided to stick with the RE career. The rollerbading surprised me! Can't picture that! That's something I have never tried...

If  you need to work off some OCD come on over... I've got a few sock drawers you could work on!
