26th February 2007

12:38pm: not just a teaser... i really am back...
I miss blogging... and seeing what my friends are up to across the world... so I'm back after a wild and crazy ride on the myspace train... got a few new scars... some fading bruises... some life lessons and a bit more wisdom... but i pretty much look the same on the outside ;) Perhaps I'll share a bit more of my experiences later...

I'm THIRTY freakin' NINE now can you believe?? I can't... Elisabeth will be 13 in May... just as hard to believe... I moved the end of August... to a condo a mile or so away from the old house... right in the heart of downtown and across the street from a city park/lake... i LOVE it here... Elisabeth could walk to school (if she ever got herself ready in time)... I do walk over and pick her up sometimes... i walk to the gym... walk downtown... Rudy's condo is 1/2 mile down the street from mine... what else?? ehhh... as i think of it, i'll share...

rudy got me a fantastic camera for christmas so im sure ill be posting pics again soon...

at any rate... hope you all had a wonderful holiday... great new year... and that 2007 has been good to you so far... any big news to share that ive missed??

21st November 2006

4:26pm: holy missing persons batman!
i havent been here in forever... thought i better crack open my LJ before i forget the password... so what's up LJ land???

23rd June 2006

8:25pm: where did June go??
it has been brought to my attention that i have been severely neglecting my livejournal account and friends so i figured i better post an entry before i forget my password! so what's been going on in my life...

good things... business is just growing and growing... out of control almost... office looks beautiful... we still have to put some art up on the walls and then ill post some pics... elisabeth finished 6th grade... ive gotten to talk to several of my old HS friends that i havent talked to in ten years or more while planning the reunion... ive managed to keep from messing with my nails for a few weeks and they are actually growing... ive been running and lifting weights regularly and ive lost 7 lbs... down to 120 from 127 (115 is my goal by the end of july and then ill check my bodyfat percentage)

bad things... an older gentlement pulled rudy's bumper off in a parking lot while he was in clearwater this month for business... he had to get the hood and bumper replaced... he went back to clearwater two weeks later and had a big chunk of tire blow from a truck... bounced right up under the front of his car... big huge dent in the middle of the new bumper... (sometimes you just gotta laugh)...

jury is still out... we'll definitely be moving the end of august... i have rented this house for over six years now and ill be sad to go in some ways... i love my 85 year old wood floors!!! but it's past time... we need more space... still trying to decide whether to buy now or rent for a year and then buy (for LOTS of different reasons)...

upcoming... road trip!! elisabeth and i are heading to Texas, Louisiana, and Arkansas during the month of July... rudy will be here working/holding down the fort... first stop TEXAS... we are hitting Houston, Austin, camping on the Guadalupe River, then on to Bryan/College Station, Rusk, and then Dallas/Ft. Worth... then heading up to the Ozarks in Arkansas to visit my brother... back down to Shreveport, LA to see my dad and other family and attend my 20 yr HS reunion... then finally back home by the last day of the month!

ok my child is bugging me to get changed to go for a run so she can ride her bike... ill try to post some pics here tonight or this weekend... and then catch up with a few of you!

have a great weekend ;)

21st May 2006

9:18am: where did May go??
last time i checked it was april... or maybe march?? one more week until school is out... where did the year go?

my munchkin is 12 now! we had the big birthday party last Saturday... "Elisabeth's birthday has gone to the DOGS!" was the theme... we had about 22 kids there and half that many dogs... everyone seemed to have a good time... i think the walks around the dog park and the water gun fight were the two favorite activities...

office news... rudy decided to upgrade to a bigger office after picking out furniture that just wasnt going to fit into the smaller one... the walls have been painted, wood floors laid (rudy and his cousins laid glueless wood laminate down over the existing carpet) and they are painting the baseboards today... the furniture arrived last week and has been sitting in an empty office... plan is to get it moved in tomorrow and/or tuesday...

kelly and i did the 15K on 5/7... was wonderful to see her... and she definitely helped motivate my behind to keep going... the last 2.5 miles were tough... my legs were definitely hurting and i had to take fairly frequent walk breaks... we did the 9.6 miles in an hour and 45 minutes... maintained an 11 minute mile which i was quite happy with considering 6 miles was my longest training run... so now we are toying with the idea of doing the Disney half-marathon (need a donald medal to add to my collection... ive got mickey and minnie now)... Raylene... make your plane reservations now!!!!

the space simulation at the mall 4/30-5/2 was a success and elisabeth won the drawing for a week of space camp at kennedy space center so she'll be doing that in august... PLUS we came home with a RABBIT... the kids had two rabbits go to "mars" with them... they needed the rabbit poop for fertilizer to do experiments as there is no soil on mars... well as we are getting ready to leave after it was all over Tuesday night, elisabeth comes running up begging me to let her have one of the rabbits... at first i was like "when hell freezes over" but within an hour we had a new rabbit... in my defense she is a really sweet rabbit and will let you pick her up and hold her... **sigh**

reunion planning is going strong... taking up lots of my time... im still refining the website...

work is busy... more for rudy than me though... which is good because my "volunteer" work has been taking over my life!

i guess that's all the news that's fit to print...

yo kelly... ill post our digi pics from the 15K soon... hopefully later this week... i havent dropped off the other film for developing yet

12:07pm: whoever invented the plunger...
was a freakin' genius!
10:36am: is this a rudy thing or a man thing??
when i have to get up and out the door early in the AM... Rudy is sleeping! when Rudy has to be up and out the door early in the AM I am handing him/getting for him... a binder clip... his watch... a bottle of water... a granola bar... his cell phone... that was this morning's list anyway... and he has already called me three times for various things, on his way to Tampa Bay

ive only lived with two men so i really dont have much material to go on...

**i love my new icon ;)

hope all had a wonderful easter... elisabeth had a friend spend the night friday, saturday we spent most of the day at the mall... sat night we cleared out a bunch of tivo'd stuff... sunday after elisabeth and rudy checked out what the "easter mommy" brought them (too much candy)... lol... we went to church, out to lunch (fyi za'bistro in altamonte springs... so not worth the price) and then to show elisabeth and rudy's mom our office... it is still being remodeled so it is basically sheetrock and the old carpet that will soon be ripped out... since rudy's mom is an interior decorator/designer she is going to help us with furniture, etc... she took some measurements... etc... full but fun weekend!

now im going over our tax stuff one last time... rudy will make his traditional midnight run to the airport PO tonight... **shakes head** he prefers to do it that way...

16th April 2006

10:48pm: are any of you guys on lj right now?? i think the earth moved and i totally missed it!!

13th April 2006

2:40pm: more breaking news...
rudy just left to go sign the lease for our OFFICE SPACE!! "office" is kinda generous... it's about 120 square feet but we share a kitchen and have the use of five conference rooms (our main need)... rudy is quite excited and was been looking at office furniture online until EARRRRRLY this AM... lol...
1:48pm: yo kelly!!!!!

10:31pm: live from key biscayne, florida!!
rudy and i are in key biscayne right now (miami area... near south beach for non-floridians)... we are here for an ETF investing conference... rudy did a presentation on tax-loss harvesting today and he is participating in a panel tomorrow... i just get to be the hot blonde by his side... **grin**

the conference is held in conjunction with the nasdaq 100 tennis open this weekend so we got to see roger federer and maria sharapova play tonite... we will be back tomorrow afternoon to watch more matches... last night we went to dinner in south beach... it's such an interesting place to people watch and always something going on... even on a wednesday night!

we are staying at the royal sonesta and our room overlooks the ocean... it's so nice to listen to the waves at night but i havent gotten to walk on the beach yet!! tomorrow is the day though... right after rudy's presentation i am headed down to the beach for an hour... the weather is fabulous... nice breeze... sunny but not too hot... the rooms at this hotel go for about $400 a night this time of year... they are nice... but for $400 someone better be standing ready to hand me a heated towel when i get out of the shower ya know??? lol... fyi... the nasdaq is picking up the room since rudy is a presenter... even when im a multi-millionaire i doubt i'll ever pay $400 for a room... just on principal ;)

rudy's mom is holding down the fort and staying with elisabeth since she has school... of course i created a master schedule for her with everything she needs to do each day, right down to setting out her breakfast dishes the night before... yeah wouldn't you LOVE to have me as your mom??

FEEDBACK:
I have feedback on ebay as audette67 and MUA as sunnlight. I take paypal (all types), concealed cash (at your own risk but i do discourage this), and money order/cashiers check. I typically do not leave/check for feedback at mssfeedback because there is no easy way to look up/search for all of the feedback on one person. You just have to scroll through the entries and I am much too impatient to do that, I freely admit! **grin**

NOTE: I'll be in and out today but I'll check back periodically.

23rd February 2006

10:40pm: you know how i used to complain that...
it seemed like i was treading water... not moving forwards or backwards... not making progress professionally or personally...

well it's like ive been in a slingshot that's been stretched/pulled back S-L-O-W-L-Y... and it was just let loose!!! rudy has four major presentations to give in the next five weeks, three of which are in south florida, and one in the tampa area... ill be at all of them of course providing support but i freely admit rudy is the guru when it comes to the investing stratgies we use... i am actually giving a presentation on saving/investing for college tuesday night, plus preparing our annual financial statments, doing our tax returns and planning my HS reunion... AND trying to work out every day... ive been lifting weights before i pick her up and then elisabeth has been riding her bike while i run right after she gets home... it's not TOO hot right now but im sure we will have to change that in another month or so...

speaking of running... sounds like ive talked my way into running that 15K... kel_logg already registered!! i was half joking but it's serious now! three months to run what is that... nine miles?? comfortably...

also we have been working on a really big agreement to sub-advise for another RIA who has been in business for 15 years... it will cause our business to grow phenomenally... it's been back and forth... back and forth... but it is finally pretty much in the bag... we just need to get the agreements signed and client conferences scheduled/conducted...

finally... rather than bore you with the long, drawn out details ill cut to the chase... i had a chest x-ray as part of a routine physical in december... the x-ray came back with a "spot" on it so the dr. scheduled me for a CT scan... the CT scan showed a 3mm "nonspecific, noncalcified nodule"... could be inflammation of some sort, could be a scar (from pneumonia - i had it when i was 5 - or something similar), or it could be a tumor... the radiologist that read the CT scan recommended i have another scan in six months to see if it has changed/grown... my dr's routine policy is to send any patient on to the pulmonologist, who could end up doing some invasive procedures... ive done quite a bit of research on this and the overwhelming odds are that it is nothing... and given my lack of risk factors for lung cancer, the odds are greater that id get a puntured lung from a needle biopsy than the odds are that i have lung cancer... ive pretty much decided i am going to wait the six months, altho my dr is really pushing me to go to the pulmonologist... has anyone (or you know anyone that has) had a spot on their lung discovered by an x-ray/CT scan??? what did you do and what was the outcome?? at first i was a little freaked out (my greatest fear is dying before my daughter is grown) but im very calm about it now... what it is, is what it is and it is so small that i dont think waiting until June to check it again will make a big difference... and studies haven't really shown that catching lung cancer early significantly affects survival rates

but all you smokers out there need to put out your cigarettes now!! i cant imagine purposely doing something that you know could very likely result in cutting your life short... 87% of lung cancer cases are due to smoking... and most of the rest are due to enviromental factors (chemicals/toxin exposure such as asbestos, heavy exposure to 2nd hand smoke -- bartenders, etc.)...

well to end on a happy note... HAPPY 7 YEAR ANNIVERSARY TO RUDY AND I!!! we had our first date seven years ago today... we went to see Life is Beautiful :-) and the rest is history!! we are working too much to do anything really (next year!)... we did have lasagna, salad, strawberries w/whipped cream for dinner while catching up on American Idol!

18th February 2006

8:03pm: thawed out!!
had to turn on the A/C this afternoon so i guess we are officially thawed out! i've got some news and a request for input... but ill have to update with that later... im about to head out to meet raylenetaskoski and her hubby for dinner... they have to get their Florida fix at least once a year! im gonna try to talk raylene into coming back down and doing the inaugural Minnie Marathon at Disney in May... it's a 15K... hey we did 26.2 miles once... surely we can go 15K! anyone else wanna join in on the fun??

14th February 2006

11:07pm: happy heart day of course!
just wanted to wish ya'll a happy valentine's day before it's midnite and i'd have to wish you a belated one! we're home from savannah... absolutely beautiful city (at least the historic part, didn't see much else)... but Freezing cold!! came home to freezing cold weather... in other random news elisabeth went to the Salvador Dali museum and the Holocaust museum in St. Petersburg today...

i'll be back on LJ when things thaw out!
Current Mood: cold

i suppose this thing is pretty accurate!! TGIF btw!!!

23rd January 2006

11:11pm: almost finished...
with my big cleaning/decluttering mission... i did the spice/pantry-type items cabinet and the bathroom today... deep-cleaned the bathroom except for the floors... got a bunch of packages into boxes and mailers, addressed and taped up, etc and mailed at the PO... LOTS of birthdays this month and for the next three...

speaking of birthdays... HAPPY BELATED CAKE DAY to my favorite New Zealander... twelve_months... hope you didnt get into too much mischief while you were celebrating!! and be sure to watch the skies for the next week or two ;P

we FINALLY joined the gym Sunday... which means my quads are on fire today... mainly when i get up from a chair or squat down for something... i worked chest and quads yesterday... can't wait to see how my back and hams will feel tomorrow!! perhaps i wont be able to get out of bed!! i havent worked out in over two months so the ol' muscles aren't real happy about starting up again... im doing weights and cardio on the same day... a little less cardio than when i do bfl style workouts... 5 minute warmup on the treadmill and then a 10-15 minute cardio session on the treadmill after weights and abs... im really increasing the incline on the treadmill as well... ANYHOO... i suppose this would be better suited for my sunnshapejournal if it still exists... i havent seen it in so long...

cooked a delicious dinner tonight -- green beans, brown rice, chicken breast marinated in italian dressing, and south beach mashed potatoes (everyone actually ate the SBMP after moaning and groaning about them) -- steamed cauliflowers pureed with nonfat milk, your choice of butter type product, I use smart balance, salt and pepper)... i really dont enjoy cooking so i was quite proud of myself... we actually ate at the table WITH candles...

elisabeth brought a little FRIEND home with her Sunday... she won this little friend at the fair this weekend... luckily we still have all the supplies to make her new friend ALBERT comfortable because sadly her last friend jumped out of his bowl after living in it peacefully for almost two years... i didnt find him until it was much too late (elisabeth was at her dad's at the time) to attempt any type of resuscitation... in fact MARSHMALLOW was quite dried up when i found him as i went in her room to put away some clothes... so hopefully ALBERT will prove to be a bit more intelligent than MARSHMALLOW (altho two years is a pretty decent life span for a betta fish)! Now Albert lives in Elisabeth's room along with Stubs and Thor, the two crazy gerbils (think Pinky and the Brain... one is skinny and is constantly trying to get out, the other is fat and content to laze around and eat/sleep)...

Elisabeth got to go on a helicopter ride Saturday... her first... she still isn't sure whether she liked it or not! I've never been up in a helicopter but I like the idea that it can hover, go backwards or forwards... wish airplanes could do that!

well tomorrow will be here soon and we have a meeting at 10AM... Rudy's been asked to be the campaign treasurer for a guy who is running for an office (state level not federal) for our district... which means ill be the actual bookkeeper... lol... and rudy will get all the glory!

sweet dreams...

18th January 2006

11:01pm: busy few days...
i was gone most of today... elisabeth had a consultation with an orthodontist and it looks like braces are definitely in our future... then she got her hair trimmed, we hit planet smoothie (i had a low carb pina colada thank you!)... and then ran into the mall of millenia to see what was new at the mac store... afterwards we stopped at one of elisabeth's favorite stores, dry ice... only to find it is going out of business (bankruptcy claims another victim)... with everything 60-80% off we found some fantastic deals tho... mostly on nyx makeup, bath stuff, and pj's... elisabeth got a bead curtain too...

last night rudy and i met with a potential client... now a new client... our first that wasn't a referral from a friend/family member... or an actual friend/family member... so that was a bit of a milestone... today rudy wrote a press release for a financial newswire... friday we have lunch with another potential client... a rolling stone gathers no moss!! seems like we were covered in moss for so long but we're finally shaking it off thank goodness!!

tomorrow we work in our office getting things organized for the new year... then i have to start on the financial statements... then the lovely tax returns... elisabeth is deep into selling girl scout cookies so ive been trying to help her with that... speaking of, the lucky girl got invited to the beach this weekend with a friend... i wish I had a beach house!! or even a friend with a beach house!!

i officially lost 6 lbs. on south beach phase 1... went from 132.5 to 126.5 in two weeks... im hoping to be down to 123 by the end of the month... we still havent signed up at the gym (spent tuesday prepping for last night's meeting and then rudy spent all day on that 3-page press release)... perhaps tomorrow!!

thot for the day: ""Be a first rate version of yourself, not a second rate version of someone else."

– Judy Garland

EOTD: UD primer potion as base, bitter (entire lid), sable (outer and crease), retrospeck (highlight and very inner corner of lid), showstopper wet as eyeliner top and bottom, sable under lower lashline/eyeliner... can you tell i like bitter just a bit??
