On Wednesday Kent went to the 3rd Annual Entrepreneur Convention. It had a slow start, but he really got a lot out of it and met some new people. While we're not always passionate about the same topics, I love seeing him get so excited! He came home and talked my ear off for a good hour.
While he was away, I organized and rearranged our home office. Along with implementing a new filing system, I moved the desk about 6 inches. I know you're thinking, "that's nice, but 6 inches? So after 5 minutes what did you do?" I will have you know that this desk weighs probably 300 lbs and I'm only about 90. Do the math and you'll be impressed too :) That 6 inches did make all of the difference though!
On Friday, Kent and I trekked over to the ADRE office to see if we could move the Broker's license process any faster. I don't know exactly why we thought that, but all that was accomplished were 2 stress headaches and a grumpy Friday night. Thanks to my mom blabbing about the situation to a family friend, we have a wonderful Real Estate Attorney now. He really knows how the department works as he has worked there and represented clients against them as well. HOPEFULLY he'll be able to move along some resolve on our behalf. Our current Broker closes his doors in T-minus 7 days (4 of those days being a holiday weekend).
I am just about set for Thanksgiving this week. I have my menu in place and just about all of the groceries I need. I will be brining the Turkey, so I am excited to see how it turns out. I've never brined anything before nor have I ever cooked a Turkey. Yesterday I dried out the bread cubes for the stuffing. It reminded me of being at my Grandma's one summer when she covered the Ping Pong table with bread cubes to make the stuffing for a Church Picnic. As kids we were completely devistated, BUT 20 years later...I knew how to dry bread :)
Well happy feasting to everyone this week!
