Change needed!

Last week was nutty, nutty good that is! I finally sold a house!! YIPEE, it's been a long time and tough market. Lovely clients from Canada, they will really enjoy their new home here in Puerto Vallarta. I also put in 2 offers on other homes here, the bottom has not fallen out of the market here like in the states so when people start throwing low ball offers, the sellers tend to get a little pissed as is what happened last week. All is well that ends well, guess it just was not ment to be! Some sadness as well, my friend Stephanie lost her father, my friend Trish lost her sister and my workmate Teresa lost her father. Seems it usually comes in threes. I do have to say this is one of the weirdest times I have lived in my life, so much uncertinty in the world and uncertinity in my life as well. I also had the chance to have dinner with Ronnie and Kathy, a really neat couple that has just moved here! We had a blast, we drank wine unitl almost 1 am sharing stories! Kathys birthday is tomorrow and she has invited me to celebrate with them at her friend Marcelas house, looking forward to it!
I got a call friday night from a good friend who I hadn't seen in a long time, Celina. We have been saying for months that we were going to get together and that we did on Friday night. I met her and Karen at La Dolce Vita on Friday night at 11 pm. We had a few glasses of wine and talked about life, kids, men, being a woman, and then off we went to De Santos! Cut a rug we did! We danced till the sun came up! I saw a lot of other people at De Santos I had not seen in a long while, I tend to get wrapped up in my own little world here and forget how many great people I actually know and love here! We were like 12 years olds at a slumber party listening to the raido when a good song came on to dance to, we all cheered! I guess its the simple things in life like a galss of wine and dancing the night away with girlfriends that make it worth living!
I had a great day today, well besides listening to the jack hammer wripping out the stiars above my house, I spent most of the day working on a blog for my parents business Manntiques.


They are open again for the season and we all wish them the best! Also if you are on Facebook look for their group page, Manntiques and Upholstery!

I am very excited that I have stuck with my workouts and healthy eating for over a month, as of today I am still down 11 pounds!! Yipee, I am very proud of myself. Looking back I am now realizing how I covered my unhappyness with Jorge up with food. I used food to fill the void, well not anymore, I am working on me now! I am mediatating more and finally feel like I am coming out of the fog and feeling like I am in control of my life again. Good things are coming my way because I am going to make them!! Actually in the whole scheme of things I have it pretty good, a loving, healty family, an amazing network of friends and a future full of possibilities! Lovin life! I will leave you tonight with this photo I took outside my office yesterday. Obviously there were not parking spots on the street, so this guy just used the sidewalk!! xoxo
